Cool atmosphere. Lots of historical items to see. Definitely try the battered steak tips. Very good. Salad, potatoes, and bacon wrapped chopped steak were fair. Certain items on the plates were a little cool temperature wise. Bathrooms were disgusting. Wait staff was adequate but not...More

When in Deadwood don't miss this place for lunch or dinner. Great selection of food at reasonable prices. Drinks are priced right and were cheaper on the bar side. Could have been because it was the bartenders first day! There is live music. There is...More
