I dropped by Cassie’s, a well-known local bar and supper club, not for dinner, but simply for a drink. This former “House of Fallen Women” (yes, they even brag about it), is now a steakhouse, bar, nightclub, dance hall …….. If you can think it, Cassie’s tries to be it.
The interior is split into several levels and motifs, as would be expected of a building that has been added on to so many times. Entering through the main door, you find yourself in a small anteroom; the place where later on in the evening the bouncer would be stopping you to card you. Heading on in, you are greeted by a windowless (and I mean windowless) conglomeration of rooms. There is the “gift shop” (usually closed; but they will open it up if they can find who has a key); the bandstand (the local house band “West” plays on Friday and Saturday nights); the relatively large dance floor; the front bar (the one that is always open); the rear dining room (with a second bar that opens for the evening drinking crowd - sometimes); and the main dining area. Except for the main dining area (and the rear dining area when it is in use), the bar is strikingly dark. It looks tired, and probably hasn’t seen an update since Carter was President). The main dining area is well lit and seems much newer.
Sidling up to the bar (Yes, sidling. We are in Wyoming, after all), the bartenders (I went twice for a mid-week libation), are quick to greet you. They were both nice enough, and seemed to be attentive to the patron’s needs. The on-tap selection is surprisingly small for a bar/supper club (5 or 6), but the bottled selection is reasonable, especially if you like microbrews. They stock a nice selection of beers from several regional breweries, such as Red Lodge Ale in Red Lodge Montana; Grand Teton Brewing Company in Victor, Idaho; and Big Sky Brewing in Missoula, Montana. I tried the Hefeweizen from Red Lodge Ales, the B*tch Creek ESB (Extra Special Brown) from Grand Teton and the Moose Drool from Big Sky Brewing. All were served nice and cold, much appreciated after a 14 hour work day on a warm July afternoon. Bottle, of course, as no one here asks for a glass. The prices were good for a “craft Beer”, about $3.00.
A quick look at the lunch menu brought no big surprises, although it’s not a bar menu, it’s a supper club menu. Even looking at just appetizers, the food is a little on the expensive side. $8.00 onion rings, $8.00 Wings; $8.00 Grilled Cheese; $9.00 burgers. The dinner prices might be higher.
A few of us dropped in later on during the week for a late-night listen to the house band “West”, and to have a couple of drinks. Our server was an absolutely beautiful young lady, but one who had apparently just recently come to the United States to work. She did not know what “draft beer” was, nor did she understand the word “pitcher”. I find it to be pretty surprising for a bar waitress not to know these. The two gals in the group ordered a “Pink Cowgirl”. My male friends ordered three Bud Lights (bottles), and being a dark beer aficionado, I realized our English limited server would never know what I was talking about. I told her I would come up and look at the selection with her, which I did, and which culminated in my choosing a “Moose Drool Porter”. The drinks were cold (although Cassie’s apparently does not have air conditioning, as it was hotter than hell in there), and the prices were reasonable for a Friday night. West, the band, was very good, and played a variety of music. It wasn’t limited to country, and was enjoyed by all. There is a medium sized dance floor, and it was full. The crowd ranged from Old Time Cowboys, to kids – literally. Even at 10 O’clock at night, there were three and four year-olds dancing with their parents. I guess this place could definitely be called “kid-Friendly”. When we re-ordered, we only wanted one Pink Cowgirl, one Bud Light, and one Moose Drool. We ended up with an entire re-order, three extra drinks. Since the prices were reasonable and feeling a little sorry for the gal, we took ‘em all. Maybe it’s just a good way to sell extra product, though
Not having partaken of the dinners, I can’t comment on that. Drink prices are reasonable, but I think the food prices are kind of high. There is a second bar/Pool room off to the right of the building (that seems to allow smoking), as well as a drive-thru attached to the building. The place is unique, having been a “House of Ill Repute” in it’s earlier days, and it is a local landmark. It’s rather run down inside, very divey, but an interesting place to drop by and see. At least you’ll be able to say “Yeah, I’ve been to Cassie’s”, if nothing else.

At the advice of TA reviews, we decided to give Cassie's a try on a trip to Cody. We didn't regret it. We didn't have reservations and it was a Thursday night so we had a bit of a wait...sat at the bar and waited for a table. Drinks were good and reasonable priced. Bartender even made her own version of ginger ale when we asked for a Maker's Mark & Ginger...and, it was good!

We were seated a quaint table near to the dance floor which was very fun as were got to enjoy a bit of line dancing while waiting and dining. Steaks were very good...well seasoned and cooked perfectly!

Server was efficient and friendly. Prices seemed on the high side of average but no complaints. All in all, a good visit and we were pleased that we chose to have dinner at Cassie's!

The food and drinks are very good but you pay the price. Service is friendly and efficient. The bands are here every Friday and that's probably why the food and drinks are pricey but overall, it's a great night out and the bands are lots of fun. It is very Wyoming, which is why I love it. Totally unpretentious!

The food here is good, but expensive for the size of the steaks. The service is good & friendly. The drinks are xpensive compared to other places as well. The place has not changed in the last 25 yrs an.It needs to be updated & "dusted". THe band is the same that has been there for the last 20 yrs & all the numbers the band plays are the same. It used to be very crowded, but now a person can walk in & see the same people in place that have been there. Sorry, but if you was a meal for a good price & quality, go to the Rib n Chop or Geyser Brewing Company just down the street.

The curb appeal is really good for the town it is in. The interior décor and atmosphere are very western matching the curb appeal and setting for the town. After 10pm the place lights up with live music and dancing. If you go for the food, you might be a little disappointed. For the price of your meal, which is pretty pricy, you get some pretty small portions.
