I visited this steakhouse with high hopes, only to find out that my meal had been microwaved. Do not get anything other than a steak or fries here. The presentation was awful, my lettuce was brown and soggy and my brother ordered fries with fish...More

Great steaks in a historic property. Service was excellent, and the establishment had framed pictures of the town of Deadwood lining the walls. I loved looking at the photographs. Large portion for the money.
