We heard so many good things about Lewie's that we knew we needed to try it. There were six of us. As we asked questions about the menu, the waitress was so short that after one couple ordered drinks, they paid for it and left...without ordering food. The food was good but it was spoiled by the waitresses attitude.More

The food was good. The experience was awkward. We had a group of 11 so I tried to call ahead to see if we could get on a waitlist but was told it was first come, first served. So we show up and there is...no sign, podium, or hostess. I find a waitress inside to ask about getting our group seated. She said we had to find a space ourselves or ask another server where there was room. We went back outside to pull tables together and were initially told we couldn’t move tables but then the waiter relented. We went to the bar inside to pay and were basically told that they were busy and they’d get to us when they could. Very weird and unorganized way to run a business in my opinion.More

Service wasn’t great but wow those burgers are GOOD. Definitely one of the best burgers I’ve ever had! The cheese balls and mac and cheese bites were also excellent!

Great burgers, cheese curds and shrimp. The place was busy and we were warned that food would take a long time, but our food was there in 40 minutes and our server checked on us often to fill drinks, etc. It was a bit noisy...but definitely has a sports bar atmosphere.More

We have ate here to many times to count. Always get the burgers and have yet to have a good one… because they are great!! Everyone in the hills say they have the best burger, these guys have the best burger by far. Can’t speak...on the rest of the menu because once you try the burger you really don’t care about anything else on the menu.More

My grandson and I stopped here for lunch after taking a leaf-peeping drive through Spearfish Canyon. The deck was full, so we ate inside (which was also very busy), but we were seated immediately. I cannot praise our server enough--she had many tables filled with...hungry people and she handled it all effortlessly. Our burgers were incredible and the fries perfect. The food was sooo good and the portion so large I requested a take-home box. I will be back!More

Stopped here for dinner after searching for it a while. Lead is confusing with a couple of different Main Streets. GPS said we had passed it, but we had not gotten to it yet. Most were eating outdoors snd it was a beautiful night for...it. We just ordered standard cheeseburgers and they were excellent. Servers were very busy, but still very attentive and friendlyMore

Best burgers in the Hills and always friendly faces. A must stop for lunch if you’re in the Northern Black Hills.

Fell in love with Lewie"s while staying in Deadwood. The food and service were excellent. We liked it so well we ate there three times during our vacation. The margaritas were to die for. Prices were reasonable. Best waitresses ever.

Our waiter seemed ok at first but then he told us each family had to set together because it was easier for him. Say what???? 3 families 6 adults 6 kids. Very limited menu so not something hard to screw up. The HUGE amount of...fries we were told everyone would get would hardly feed a toddler. We were very appreciative for everything. Extra appreciative. When we asked for extra ranch after food came our waiters attitude went way south. Felt like we were not welcome and to just get out and never come back. Even the other staff just stared at us as we all walked out. It was to bad because we stayed all week in town just up the street.More

Laid back place with indoor and outdoor seating. We ordered a burger, Reuben sandwich and fried shrimp. Burger was good, Reuben as well, fried shrimp just ok. Great place to have a beer and sit on the deck watching the motorcycles and UTV’s go by....Waitress was friendly and attentive.More

Stopped in for a a few beers and some apps, Service was right on , ordered wings and ..Mac& cheese fritters, came out very quick. BIt into the wings, frozen inside!! Called waitress back, she was very apologetic, wasn’t her fault, she’s taking heat for...the chef! She agreed wasn’t right, took it off the bill, Mac & cheese was ok. Will go back for drinks, food? the “chef” should really learn how to prep wings for the line! Or learn how to cook! Other wise a nice local bar.More

In town for snowmobiling and this place was recommended. Busy Friday night so waited a few minutes to be seated. People here are not happy to be wearing masks and you definitely get looks for wearing one. Food came quickly, staff was busy but friendly....Looks like a fun place to come on a weekend with a large group.More
