“Over-rated”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 13, 2013

This place was highly recommended by our hotel, but it's just average food and average service.

The steak was tender, but not very tasty. Seafood is okay.

They did have a nice selection of wine and beer, and the wait staff was busy all the time.

The casino was VERY tight. Played $20 each and never one a thing.

Thank you for taking the time to comment about your recent experience at the Mineral Palace. The Gem Steakhouse updates our wine and beer selection quarterly. All of our steaks are hand cut in the Gem Steakhouse, Chef Phil and his staff would be happy to cook and season the steaks anyway you like them. Next time you visit Deadwood we hope that you will try your luck again on one of our 354 slot machines.

“Stay away from the buffet.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 18, 2012

Vegas prices for a not so good meal. Many of the hot selections were only warm and tasted like out of a can. Wilted lettuce in the salad and store bought desserts. Any other place in Deadwood would be my suggestion.

“Food at the Gem - not so great”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2012

Have to say i was disappointed with the food this trip. Ate there the past couple of years and always had excellent food. This year, not the case. Steak was ok but the garlic potoes were obviously from a mix and the carrots were inedible. The waiter was good and was kept running because a huge table.
