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.

Tonight not busy-Wednesday-service very good. Seated immediately for dinner. Steak was just as ordered. Glasses always full. Only criticism is not to stay away from steak. Chicken and fish dishes were weak and over done. No r room left for dessert tonight do not able to judge but I did see a chocolate cake looked good.

Higher end steak house, not your run-of-the-mill 'slap a steak and baked potato on my plate and call it good' steakhouse. Friend and I just 'snacked' on appetizers - pheasant jalapeno poppers, bacon-wrapped asparagus, buffalo kebabs, and walleye sticks. Sauces that accompanied were unique and complemented very well. The wait staff was phenomenal - very attentive, but not over the... More

Just ate dinner there with my husband. I have been looking forward to eating there for years. Will never go back! Tellulah was a terrible waitress, didn't ask if we needed anything, didn't clear pkates. And manager could care less. Over rated!

This location came to us by a recommendation for a spot for a nice meal as a great topper to a celebration. The setting is nice and was very cozy. We arrived earlier than our reservation and were seated right away. Now it was only +1 deg outside with a-20 wind chill so they were not real busy. Food was... More

Just visited this steakhouse for a company Christmas party. Everyone in our loved the food and atmosphere. Myself I had the bone in ribeye and Bleu cheese mashed potatos. Living in this area and visiting lots of different steakhouses I will be back.

Conveniently located just off the interstate next to a number of hotels. If you're passing through this would not be a bad choice for fairly good food, good service, but a little bit on the expensive side. My wife and I each had steak; she had a fillet and I had the special prime rib a 14oz cut. The fillet... More

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.
