I was not impressed with the food or the service here. Went with my wife and a business recruiter. Food was slow to come out and when it did come out, it was very underwhelming.

We decided to try Dakotah Steakhouse after a not so good experience over a year ago. It was very busy on a Friday night. 20 min to get a drink at the bar (short staffed and overrun with drink orders). Seated quickly after being told...More

The choices range from the higher end of the reasonable scale and some cases are just too expensive. The food has always been good in my experience and the service has been as well. I see it as being a place for this area which...More

Stopped in and ordered their $50 cut of dry-aged prime rib medium and the lady ordered a petite 6oz sirloin medium well. The food was dropped off and it was the wrong temperature. We were left for 30 minutes and no one checked on us,...More

My husband and I recently ate here with a group of people. The atmosphere is wonderful and represents this area of South Dakota well. He had a KC strip steak and I had the walleye. Both were good. The only issue was the length of...More

All their selections are outstanding - the steaks are done to perfection. The sou-chefs pay attention to detail ensuring you a delightful experience. House cocktail are fresh and distinctive in taste and preparation. We will definitely return.

Was visiting my son and wife, who live in Rapid City. They suggested this for our first night together. I was impressed, quality equal to a Ruth's Chris or Morton. My son often brings professional visitors here for dinner. Besides typical steak offerings, they did...More

We frequent Rapid City but didn’t realize this was here. Buffalo ribeye was delectable. Old fashioned was good (after they added a little more bourbon). Comfortable and semi-private booths. Server was courteous and professional despite long shift and busy restaurant. We’ll be back!

Beautiful gas fire place and decorating of local surroundings. Service was wonderful, just wished the chef would understand gluten free in beers.

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.
