This was our second time in Deadwood and wanted to try something new. Read the reviews and thought we would try Mavericks for the steak. It was fantastic! My husband had the 2 meat combo and could not even finish it. My father in law how is always so picky had NOT ONE BAD THING TO SAY!! Our waitress Lydia was so much fun! Lydia made the meal even better!!

I would be happy to recommend this place to anyone. We were 6 in our party and each ordered something different. One of us was looking for gluten free options. The manager came over and was very knowledgeable and made recommendations which turned out to be delicious. All the meals were tasty and offered good value. If you are looking for a place to get a good meal . Give Mavericks a try

We had dinner here on a Saturday night, which meant it was quite busy, plus it tends to be noisy with the casino downstairs. We chose to eat at the bar rather than wait 20 minutes for a table. Despite how busy the bar staff were, service was friendly and fast. We both got The Maverick, which is a 6 oz sirloin with sides. The salad was good-sized and tasty with the balsamic vinaigrette. The steaks were flavorful, and the fries were nicely crispy.

Hello! Thank you for the great, detailed review of our establishment I am so pleased to hear that the bar staff took good care of you despite being busy. All of our Mavericks are hand cut in house, aged on a 21 day minimum for the best tasting beef around. I am also partial to the delicious balsamic vinaigrette, Yum! We hope you'll dine with us again when in lovely Deadwood.

Safe travels!

Stopped in at Mavericks on our first trip to Deadwood. Decided to visit due to the good reviews on Trip Advisor and were not disappointed. We weren't going to order the Maverick special until the local guy next to us at the bar got it and told us how good it was. The portion was good, a nice choice of sides, and a salad that comes with good homemade salad dressings and you can’t beat the price. Mavericks has a nice selection of draft beer but it would be helpful if they had a beer menu available. Beer people like to read more about a beer than what can be seen from tap handle from across the bar. Brewery, style, size, cost at the very least. Mavericks has a nice atmosphere. Booths, high top tables and a bar. We were very pleased with the service and the food. Would definitely return if we came back to Deadwood.

Hello! Thank you for visiting our Mavericks trip advisor page. We like to think of our Friday night steak special as one of the best deals in town and sell hundreds of them every Friday night! I appreciate your thoughts in regards to a beer list and will look into this right away. We love the excellent feedback and can't wait until your next visit with us!
