Breakfast Joints to Fuel Your Day

Coffee? Eggs? Fruit? A little eye-opener? However you start your day, finding the perfect breakfast in Deadwood is easy. Try a breakfast burrito or rancher steak tips at Deadwood Miners, or dig into chicken-fried steak with eggs or steel-cut Irish oats at Oggie’s Sports Bar. Miss your friendly neighborhood coffee shop? The baristas at Deadwood’s Pump House Coffee & Eatery or Main Street Espresso, Sturgis’ The Coffee Shop or Sturgis Coffee Company complement the morning with espresso, lattes and pastries, as do Spearfish’s Creekside Bean and Vine, Good Day Cafe and Green Bean Coffeehouse.

Steakhouses & Seafood

Surf and turf in the Black Hills? Yes, please. After a long day in the car or at the slots, nothing beats a tender, juicy steak or lobster hot from the kitchen. Try Maverick Steaks and Cocktails for their signature “fallin’ off the bone” baby back ribs. Head to Legends Steakhouse for a lobster dinner, braised elk gnocchi, buffalo ribeye or rack of lamb. The Farmhouse Bistro & Bar in nearby Spearfish takes a farm-to-table approach to its seafood, sandwiches and burger entrees.

Saloons, Bars, Brewpubs & Wineries

If you’re over 21, don’t leave Deadwood without imbibing at some of South Dakota’s most famous watering holes. Drenched in history, Deadwood bars, breweries and wine cellars — some in operation since the late 1800s — boast museums of Old West artifacts, live entertainment, full bars, classic cocktails and craft brews. Check out Old Style Saloon #10, taste different flavors of moonshine and whiskey at Deadwood Distillery, and hit plenty of other hot spots along Deadwood’s Main Street. Heading in or out of town? Try Crow Peak Brewing Company, Redwater Kitchen, Spearfish Public House or Spearfish Brewing Company in Spearfish; Dakota Shivers Brewing in nearby Lead; or DesJarlias Farm and Winery, Belle Joli Winery Sparkling House, The Knuckle Brewing Company and Sturgis Brewing Company in Sturgis.

Burgers & Casual Dining

Come as you are… and come hungry. No need to dress up or get a reservation at most Deadwood restaurants. Mustang Sally’s is a fan favorite for burgers (and watching sports). If you need a break from beef, find health-conscious fare — as well as outdoor seating — at Jacob’s Brewhouse & Grocer. Nearby neighbor Oyster Bay Bar and Casino serves up delicious pizza straight from a special family recipe at A&B Pizza at Oyster Bay, and most gaming resorts lay claim to a signature anchor restaurant that flaunts the vibe of its attached casino.
