Great food and service- steaks, shrimp, salad. More food than you can eat in one visit. Highly recommended.

The secret to the Derby is that the owner and staff bisque is care and the wait staff and kitchen work together. I have been in there for lunch at least 20 times in the last year relative to medical visits to my naturopath at Butte Healing Arts. The sandwich plates and especially the soups are terrific and the seafood... More

We had such a great experience for dinner, that we went back the next night for dinner also. By far one of the best steaks I have had in a long time. Service was good and fast, even though they were quite busy. Bloody Mary was great with a large cooked shrimp in it!

There are not much choices if you are looking for a good restaurant in Butte. The Derby Steakhouse is one that you can find one good meal. I have been here a few times, the only constant is the bread and fries. The steak was good at times. But then it is better than most others in Butte.

Stopped in here late at night for dinner en-route across Montana. This is your basic small town steakhouse, but with really good steaks! A small wine list, but they did have an excellent Cakebread Cabernet on the menu for a really cheap price, basically about 10% above retail. Friendly staff - a good meal at a good price.

Our first experience here. The restaurant is not fancy, part of a casino. Looks like it's been around awhile. We found the service to be excellent. Clark was very helpful, courteous, and pleasant. I had the new york steak, and I must say that for the money, it was the best I've had in a long time. I ordered it... More

My wife and I went to the Derby for the 1st time and we were very pleased. It was a Saturday night and we did not have a reservation, but we were able to get a table right away. We both had a 16 oz. ribeye and they were cooked near perfect. The flavor was mouth watering. The meal came... More

After a long day on the road, we stumbled across this place. The smells from the parking lot had our mouths watering! Great steaks, some tasty beer that the waitress recommended, and we were doing good. Staff gave us tips on what to see around town and we're just fun to chat with.

Been going for years and still has the best steaks and good service. You can smell the aroma of the restaurant from outside as their steaks are cooked over fire. Definitely a true Butte Steak House. Lunch is excellent also. Their spinach dressing is a must.

Pasta special which was specifically recommended, not so much. Very fine attentive service in a physical plant that could use some sprucing up. If everything were as superb as the ribeye I'd say 5 stars -- the steak was very, very good.
