Chose this place based on other reviews, and we were not disappointed. The guys were thrilled with all the craft beers on tap. My filet mignon was extremely tender and flavorful. Others had the buffalo liver and the prime rib sandwich, and they all said...More

Wonderful atmosphere. Access is a little difficult. Wait staff was very accommodating and diligently checking on status of meal. They are a little pricey. Food was OK. Would return with my husband as he would appreciate the menu more than I. The best part of...More

What a terrific find. Delicious food & truly excellent service. Must go to when in the area. All four of us savored each of our different selections. Just wish that they had heated the plates before serving the food.

Two of us stopped because it was very close to our budget hotel (and a number of other similar hotels) on the east edge of Rapid City. Not really a budget restaurant, but the two of us had a very nice meal with a large...More

The steaks and sides are very good, well prepared, generous portions and taste great. You are going to pay more for all of this. $16 for a 6 ounce sirloin (that looked more like a 10 ounce to me - very thick and larger than...More

Does the restaurant have tables or only booths? We'll be six and would really like a table.

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.
