We ate here because it was close to our hotel during a cross country trip. The hotel staff recommended it and we were too tired to drive anywhere else. But what a great choice! We had some of the best burgers we've ever eaten. It was a busy place but quiet. Obviously a place for a night out for the... More

The restaurant itself us quite nice. Hostess was quick. Ordered a Stella. My friend ordered a Bud Light. I was very disappointed the Stella was served in a lager glass. That's like putting a hot dog in a hamburger bun. Round two, I ordered a small Bud Light because I was worried they would kill another beer. I got a... More

I e mailed Robin to get reservations for Valentines supper 4 days before Valentines day and she went out of her way to make it happen we ate a little earlier than we normally do but the service and food were both outstanding. I would recommend this place to anyone.

Stopped in the Dakota Steakhouse for a draft with my husband. The pours were perfectly refreshing, but the servers were all standing around looking for something to do. Hostess was even watching the TV, basketball NCAA. Lol, we just stopped by for a drink though and its 4pm...little too early for dinner.

*Two and one half hours* That how long we sat at a table, from ordering to paying. We had reservations and were seated immediately. The waitress was nice but way too chatty, wanted to tell us her life story. The food took FOREVER (one hour and 45 minutes). Failed to refill water glasses. Ribeyes, sirloins and filets were good. Naturally,... More

I go to Rapid City once a month and I have eaten at this restaurant many times. The food is exceptional and the atmosphere is pleasant.

The food was pretty good. My husband ordered a top sirloin medium. He commented that it was more medium rare and he usually doesn't say anything. I definitely would've sent the steak back. The soup of the day was lobster bisque, it was amazing! Our server was a little slow to our needs. It didn't seem like they were overly... More

A salmon BLT arrived with some kind of sauce all over the salmon. Someone else may have liked the sauce - I did not - but I would have ordered it without the sauce IF I had known. Husband had a nice steak with bleu cheese mashed potatoes. They arrived with bacon bits, which my husband did not care for.... More

I am sorry that the menu doesn't describe everything. Our servers do know what is included on all plates, and can answer questions. We would have been happy to fix or replace what you were unhappy with. Next time, just ask the server to describe the item and your questions can be answered. More

Took my parents to dinner at the Dakotah Steak House while in town for a visit. The restaurant is very nice inside with a large central fireplace and great decor. The service was good but the food was just average for a high end Steak House. My cowboy bone in rib eye steak was extremely fatty and not spiced well... More

Beautiful south west décor. I love the large metal buffalo outside and inside the best steaks ever. Could not resist the filets. Drove miles for dinner just to eat there again and again.

Description
We"ve always believed that dining should be a social occasion, a time when friends, family, and coworkers can enjoy great conversation over a great meal. We believe in supporting our local artisans and staying connected to our Black Hills community. At a time when the area is growing and expanding, we're striving to keep the flavor of the region alive. Inspired by the history of this area, both the aesthetics of the building and the diversity of the menu are true to our local roots, something no nation-wide franchise can duplicate. Certainly, there are other steakhouses out there, but none like ours. From the first design to the actual construction, we've focused on creating a balance between upscale dining and a casual atmosphere-crafting a chic steakhouse where the kids are welcome too. The rest is easy-buy the very best meat possible and prepare it correctly.
