We ate here on our second night of our trip -- after Jake's. I wish we had gone here instead of Jake's on the first night! The atmosphere is more relaxed. We were in a sort of hallway area booth, but it seemed loud in the other room and in the bar. I think there was an event going on. But where we sat was just fine.
We got the artichoke appetizer based on some reviews here but I wasn't that impressed. It was alright but far from the best I've had. For dinner I had the Smoke Tuaca Pheasant. DO NOT MISS THIS. I savored every bite of this. I was hesitant because I don't usually like game birds, but I took a chance and it paid off. This was simply amazing. This is the kind of dish I expected from Jake's. But they also give you a big portion. I couldn't finish it so my husband did. He loved it also and wished he got it himself.
They have a very large drink list here. I had a Peach Pizzazz martini that was very good. I would definitely come here if I wanted to have a few drinks. Atmosphere is relaxed. Jeans are fine and I even wore sneakers. Didn't have a reservation but they seated us right away on a Friday night.
If I'm ever in Deadwood again, I will no doubt eat here.
