As you drive into Deadwood from the east, you’re sure to pass by Cadillac Jack’s Gaming Resort. In addition to a casino, three hotels, and a Starbucks, the resort is also home to multiple dining establishments, including the new FLYT Steakhouse. 

605 spoke with general manager Kari Monger, who began her restaurant days at the Alpine Inn, a Hill City restaurant that pays tribute to German heritage via food and drink.

“We are a sister company to Alpine Inn, and we like to say FLYT is a lot like Alpine’s original, but with a twist,” said Monger. “We do cocktail flights, beer flights, wine flights, and even food flights.” 

Keeping on trend with Alpine Inn’s attention to detail and flavor, FLYT offers breakfast, lunch, and dinner, hinting at German roots through their staple “3-in-1” dishes. From Schnitzel & Waffle to Bacon Wrapped Filet Mignon, the chefs at FLYT like to keep customers on their toes, especially when it comes to specials.

“Our dinner flight, Flyt of the Night, changes every month, which allows the chefs to be creative with new and exciting entrée specials,” said Monger. 

Choices range from the Bruschetta Flyt with Italian, strawberry brie, and a cream cheese blend, to the Frommage a Trois Flyt that has a cream cheese shrimp cocktail, artichoke dip, and olive tapenade with a baguette.


If you’re not in the mood for food, FLYT continues the flight trend into its drink menu as well, offering a plethora of beverage options. 

“Our most popular drink flight is the Bloody Mary Flyt, which includes a Absolut Cilantro, Lime, and Peppar flavored Bloody Mary, served with housemade pickles and classic toppings,” said Monger.

If you’re looking for something with less spice and more South Dakota homage, try the Black Hills Trilogy, consisting of a glass of Fifty Shades of White, Red Ass Rhubarb, and Burlesque. 

Monger went on to explain that once the steakhouse closes, the space is transformed into a different kind of FLYT. 

“We close the restaurant and then FLYT Nightclub opens in the same space, though we’re run by Alpine Inn and the club is operated by the resort itself,” said Monger.

The nightclub is open every Friday and Saturday, and utilizes the intense lighting and unique layout, while incorporating a DJ booth, VIP section, and dance floor. 

“Its upscale and exhilarating atmosphere offers a premier destination for ‘very important partiers,’” said marketing manager of Cadillac Jack’s Aftin Eich. “This includes dancing, DJs, live bands, and Vegas-style drink options.” 

Unlike FLYT Steakhouse, FLYT Nightclub does not offer drinks in flight form, though choices seem to be never-ending.

“You can start your night off in style with the GET LIT Happy Hour or with Be the Real VIP bottle service,” said Eich. 

Bottle service comes with three to five mixer options, garnishes, and ice. Presented in a deluxe layout, FLYT plays on the idea of bringing Las Vegas to Deadwood through presentation and quality. 

“FLYT Nightclub is also elevating the Deadwood destination by creating personalized experiences for bachelorette and bachelor parties with the Last Fling Before the Ring package, which includes VIP seating and service,” said Eich.
