Went there on labor day and the staff service was as attentive as a normal business day. Very friendly service, excellent food quality. I ordered the best half a rack of ribs I've ever had. A lot of businesses were closed because of the holiday,...More

There is a lot to see in the revitalized town of Deadwood. The cemetery, the gunfights on main street and the gambling to name a few. One of the nicer choices is the Buffalo Restaurant and Lounge where we stopped for a refresher. The boneless...More

This is a great place to eat on historic downtown Main Street. Today we enjoyed the grilled chicken salad and the marinated sirloin tips. There's a good selection of bottled beer to choose from. We sat in the covered, open air section of the complex....More

Stopped in for some after dinner drinks and really enjoyed our selves. Brian the bar tender did a great job taking care of us and they had some fun and different shots we could try.

Nice place and the service was very good. On the other hand... The steak salad was lousy - thin, gristly steak that was impossible not to overcook. The rack of ribs was disappointing as well. There have to be better places to eat in Deadwood.

My husband and I split a 'plain Jane' burger w/chedder cheese. We paid $2 more to have onion rings. The burger was wonderful, but the best part of the visit were the onion rings which were done to perfection. Service was good and live music...More

Fun place to have a relaxing lunch. Great club sandwiches and the mushroom Swiss hamburger were to die for. Live music. The guy was amazing.
