“Good Meat”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2013

My wife had the blue sirloin steak which was very good. You have to like blue cheese though. I had the smoked prime rib which was excellent. Our side dishes were less than spectacular. Loaded bake potato was fair. Vegetable corn and carrot mixture was fair. They need to keep the meat and work on the side dishes.

“Honest to gosh great burgers.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 26, 2013

We passed through Deadwood after hiking the trails at Devil's Tower and were starved for a late lunch. Though all we had was one stop and both had the buffalo burgers (topped with apple wood smoked bacon and cheddar), my wife and I decided we are coming back for steaks the next time we pass through. It was that good, service included.

Steaks were excellent. Staff was super nice. Kendra, John and Gator all served us at different timed during our visit. They were very attentive and knowledgeable of the area.

“Good food, OK service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 14, 2013

Three of us arrived on a Saturday evening for dinner. The server we encountered upon entering the restaurant was indifferent and a bit rude when seating us. We ordered walleye, half chicken and a ribeye. The chicken, walleye, and steak were very good and arrived quickly. The sides, mashed potatoes and vegetables were frozen or pre-made. Our server continued to view our dinner service as an imposition for her. We paid for dinner and our dining companion paid the tip for the meal. He tipped well above 20%, which she did not deserve, with chips from another casino and her thank you was "Well, I suppose I can walk over there and cash these in." There are probably other choices in Deadwood that would serve comparable food with a better attitude.

“Huge chicken fried steak”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

When you see the sign in the window advertising a huge chicken fried steak, they are not kiddingj! Though it was very good, I could not finish mine, and boxed it up; the rest of the crew were VERY thankful later in the evening when the munchies hit, but I was still so full I couldn't have any more :-(.

All in all a very good meal.
