if you have played Fallout 3, or Fallout Las Vegas this restaurant will be instantly recognisable , its not a recreation but the real 1950s thing , some one should slap a preservation order on it. Go these places won't be here much longer. As for the food, well this is a steak house, if you are expecting Mortons, or Ruth Chris , or David Burke, or Hawksmore in London then forget it. But if you go without these expectations then here will be good , the cooking is fresh and hot, the steaks are really not bad at all, and if you are hungry after a days driving, then this place more than suffices. The waiting staff were lovely and attentive.

Definitely the best real hand cut aged steaks in the area. Rather interesting old time dark wood decor, family owned and operated restaurant. For special occasions when we are in Yankton, it's our restaurant of choice.

If you don't know steaks don't even go here... Stick to Bonanza. Yes it takes a while and yes the decor is straight outta 1974. But take it from a cattleman..(not a tourist) .. Your hunk of beef is fed and cooked to perfection at the Steer. Go to the Outback if you want quirky fast service and leave the aged charcoal cooked steaks to those who know a good steak.

Only good thing was the steak !!
Salad was a big bowl of lettuce with literally one slice of tomato, two slices of carrot and five bits of radish with the biggest bowl of dressing ever it had a ladel and was just gloop
I had steamed vegetables which were luke warm and not steamed just full of water and nothing else came with it no potatoes, etc
waste of money looked like it's stuck in the seventies

WOW! When we travel we like to eat at the local dining places. The Black Steer just looked like they should be given a try. Bad idea. It is very dark inside. There were numerous tables some with just couples and one group of 8. We were seated and the waitress began telling us how under staffed they "always" were. She has worked there for 43 years and another woman about the same age was working and 2 younger women that looked to be sisters. they were all doing their best.
As I was watching I decided my dinner was going to be something simple, and chicken sandwich and a salad but was told a salad was $5 so just fries. So glad as when hubby's salad came w/blue cheese dressing, he had a funny look and said "you taste this". The B/C was hard to find but worse was the waxiness of the dressing. Have never tasted anything that bad for a dressing. But my husband decided on a steak....as we were watching the staff bring out other tables food we didn't quite understand what was going on. Steaks are cooked over charcoal put on a tray over charcoal in an ajus bath. Wait staff brings this cart to the table plops the steak on the plate, dips some juice over and serves, potato goes on another plate.
The steak had no seasoning or flavor at all. We spoke with the "cook" and he explained that the use such quality steaks they don't need any seasoning, beg to differ on this one.
It seems to be very much a local place as we ran into a couple we had seen at another establishment and they just wen on about how they drive so far for the best steaks in town...To each his own but I would "steer" clear of this place.
