“Buffalo Chili”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2014

Had the Chili with a baked potato - perfect on a cold rainy afternoon. Everyone else had a steak and the all liked the cut and the temperature they were cooked. I got to try the ribeye - perfectly done. Happy hour at the bar was great and we enjoyed our late lunch/early dinner. See you next year!

“The Prime Rib”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2014

Went here for dinner in July. The waiter suggested two dishes, one being the prime rib. I can be picky when it comes to prime rib, but I ordered it and was very pleased. Next time in Deadwood, the Gem is my first stop for dinner.

“Best Steaks”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2014

We recently ate here with another couple and everyone agreed it was the best steak we have ever eaten. Some had New York strip and others had rib eye. Will go back for sure and service great.

“This is the place to play cards”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2014

Deadwood has a lot of "casinos" but most are just small rooms full of slot machines. I had trouble finding table games until I went in the Gem. Played $5 blackjack all afternoon and evening with free drinks.

“Eating our Way around Deadwood”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2014

In town for Sturgis Bike Rally week.Great bar next to restaurant on 2nd floor overlooking the Main Street.It took about an hour before a table was available,but worth the wait as we watched the hundreds of bikes passing in the street.The service was very good,steaks ordered were tender and cooked to our liking.
