“Great Meal and Great Service”
Reviewed July 20, 2013

We went based on recommendation from the AAA book and were not disappointed in the least. The prices are reasonable and the service was very good. The walleye was fresh and prepared perfectly. The portions are perfect. Would recommend highly.

“Yummy”
Reviewed July 17, 2013

We went to the Gem Steakhouse during the day to ask if we needed to make a reservation and were told it was fine, however upon arrival that night we had to wait a good 30 mins to be seated. It was not an issue for us, we got a drink from the bar and sat on the little balcony overlooking Main Street.

The steak I ordered was excellent, really enjoyed the food. Really nice place to eat.

“Worth the wait!”
Reviewed July 16, 2013

I last reviewed the Gem in 2009 after our last trip to Deadwood. We had been looking forward to having the garlic parmesan ribeye for four years and it was worth the wait. During our five days in Deadwood we ate here three time. I had the ribeye steak twice and the ribeye steak sandwich once - all three were excellent every time. My oldest son had the ribeye steak, the country fried steak, and the buffalo chopped steak, all were excellent. He especially enjoyed the buffalo chopped steak. My daughter had the country fried steak twice..it's one of her favorites, and the ribeye steak sandwich. My youngest son had the ribeye steak, and the mahi mahi sandwich twice. The mahi mahi was amazing and extremely well priced at only $10. The staff was attentive and friendly. The food is wonderful and fairly priced. I can't wait to go back. If I didn't live ten hours away, I'd eat here every week.

“Nice dinner (& breakfast)”
Reviewed July 11, 2013

A nice place to eat (above the casino). Serving both breakfast (until 11) as well as dinner. The drinks from the bar were late, but otherwise a great experience. Food was great. Servers were very nice. A great alternative if you aren't interested in a hotel breakfast.
