The best part of our meal was the side salad and dessert. The appetizers were over cooked and cold. Main dish was very disappointing. When you spend over $100 on dinner, you expect it to be delicious. The meal was far from being delicious. We...More

Could you please further specify as to what day you visited in October and what dishes you had so I can determine if this is a legitimate expression of a diner's view or a review that I should report from a competitor

The restaurant is made from a former railroad roundhouse, and the atmosphere reflects old Black Hills money. Our server, Angel, was perfect--very attentive to us. My wife and I both had the steak tips, and they were fabulous. Outstanding food and service--you will not regret...More

Kind of a homey atmosphere, a little removed from the kitsch of Deadwood. Steaks were OK, similar to what you would get at the Longhorn chain. Service was attentive but not intrusive and a familiar wine list with very reasonable markups.

Seated beneath a sparkling chandelier, looking out at amazing fall foliage--one can take in a historic railroad roundhouse while enjoying a scrumptious brunch! This restaurant is not to be missed when visiting Lead-Deadwood in the beautiful Black Hills in SD!

The elegant Homestake Chop House Restaurant is located in the Black Hills-Fort Pierre Railroad Roundhouse, built by the Homestake Mining Company in 1901. The facility serviced and repaired engines for the Black Hills-Fort Pierre Railroad and Deadwood Central Railroad. By the 1990s the building had fallen into disrepair and the City of Lead decided to have it torn down. A local businessman purchased the building to save the last railroad structure in town. Homestake Chop House is a steak house, with a number of fish, poultry and seafood options. We serve Certified Angus Beef, Wagyu beef from free range cattle, Kobe beef from Japan, buffalo, Elk, Heluka Pork, organic chicken, and every day we have feature appetizers, entrees and desserts. All desserts are home made.
