You’ll Think You Stepped Back In Time When You Visit This Wyoming Supper Club
One of the many things Wyoming does well is history, and one notable supper club in Cody does it particularly well.
Entering Cassie’s is like stepping into a time machine, giving you a peek into the past when a bourbon and water cost only 50 cents and there were just as many cars parked outside as horses hitched to the posts. Today, there are definitely more cars and fewer horses, but the supper club is still the place to go for a great steak, a stiff drink, and a good time.
Cassie's Supper Club is located at 214 Yellowstone Avenue in Cody, Wyoming
It's hard to miss the sign at the roadside!
The supper club was originally opened by a local madam, Cassie Welsh.
After running a house that employed ladies of the night for almost 20 years, Cassie opened a night club and added food later on, turning it into a supper club.
Even before you enter, the exterior of the restaurant gives you a feel for what it was like way back when.
Inside, you can belly up to a piece of history - the bar was built in the 1800s.
Cassie's has gone through restoration and renovations over the years, but it's still in the original building and has always retained pieces of the original décor.
No western bar is complete without a couple of pool tables.
The dining room still has all the character Cassie built into it...
A banquet room has been added so that the club can accommodate large parties and special occasions.
...and the dining area opens up right onto the dance floor, complete with a bandstand.
A beautiful old piano sits to the side of the dancefloor, adding to the old-timey feel of the place.
After almost a century, Cassie's is still the place people come to dance.
Who wouldn't want to dance when there's a live band playing?
Occasionally, diners and dancers are treated to surprise performances by visiting musicians, like the night when Vince Gill dropped in for a steak dinner and ended up jammin' with the house band.
But don't forget - you came to Cassie's to eat. Start off with one of the delectable hors de'oeuvres like the calamari and tumbleweed sauce or, since you're in Wyoming, try the elk appetizer.
The chicken fried steak is authentic and delicious.
Cassie's puts a unique spin on an American classic. Here, burgers are a gourmet mix of ground buffalo and elk meat.
The chicken and waffles with sausage gravy is a must-try.
Cassie's is known for the steaks, however, so you can't go wrong with a ribeye or the prime rib.
You'll find chicken, seafood, and pasta on the menu, too.
And if you have room, there's always desert!
If you're in town over the weekend, be sure to come to Cassie's for Sunday brunch.
The club is open from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily serving lunch and supper, but brunch is available on Sundays from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. The bar stays open until 2 a.m.
During good weather, why not have your meal outside? There are plenty of picnic tables on the boardwalk out front to accommodate.
With the great food and yesteryear atmosphere, Cassie's is sure to become one of your Wyoming favorites.
