“Horrible new staff”

Slime Plant Lounge
Price range: $10 - $20
Cuisines: American, Pizza
Description: Why did we name our bar the Slime Plant Bar & Lounge? In a word, gold. In mining terminology, the liquid mix of gold ore and water is called slime. Back in 1906, the Deadwood Mountain Grand building was constructed as a plant to eke gold from the slippery slurry pumped from the Homestake Mine in Lead. For seven decades, locals called this Deadwood landmark "the Slime Plant." So with a tip of the glass to the mine workers of Deadwood's past, we named our bar the Slime Plant Bar & Lounge. With the comfortable, upscale surroundings, relaxed atmosphere and live entertainment at today’s Slime Plant Bar & Lounge, those miners wouldn't recognize their former workplace. So when you sit down for a cool drink at the Slime Plant Bar & Lounge, raise a glass to the hard-working guys who once made their living here.

I came in and ate the other day with my grandmother and it was in the actual restaurant at the grand.. not the bar.. anyway ive been hearing from ALOT of people around deadwood that the new management staff is horrible and they have been having issues with keeping people employed.. now I see why and would sadly have to agree. I noticed there was this lady walking around the dining room being completely unprofessional, speaking rudely and didnt even look welcoming by any means. The way she talked to her employee baffled me.. so Because she was dressed differently than all the waitresses, I ask our waitress what the lady's position was in that dining room, and she tells me restaurant manager.. I couldn't believe that the person in charge of that restaurant was acting very unprofessional.. and looked angry.To run a good restaurant, you need good and welcoming management at least!

The atmosphere is cool--it is amazing to consider what this remodel has accomplished! The food was ok....nothing memorable. Pricing was consistent with the Deadwood area--a bit higher than what would be expected for the food.

The bar tender we met was very nice and made great conversation! Drinks were well priced and the only bar that has Disaronno available!

We went to the Slime Plant Bar to check out this newish casino in Deadwood. It's nice to be in a fresh new casino, kind of unusual in this town. Parking was free, staff was friendly, but after one $9 Windsor Coke apiece, the boyfriend and I hoofed it out of there. Yikes!

Decided to stay in the Deadwood Mountain Grand rather than go find another place to eat before show. Definitely understaffed...one harried waitress for a about 15 tables...waited to get menus, waited to get drinks, waited for the waitress to return to take order, waited for food, waited for check...in all getting a burger and pizza was 1.5 hours! No refills on beverages. Granted, it was prior to a show but the staffing level was below par. Food was average. Artichoke and spinach pizza had a gooey crust and way too much cheese. Handmade burger patty was generous and looked good. My dad was satisfied with the burger except that the pile of guacamole on it oozed out and over his fingers....couldn't get the waitress's attention for more napkins. Don't know that I'll plan to eat there again. Band playing in the lounge was good - wide variety of traditional C&W songs.
