A word from Dakotah Steakhouse
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.

  • "Crispy chicken was out of this world tasty, moist and crispy. Served with a wild mushroom bechemel sauce which too was excellent. Had a side of deep fried mac and cheese which was really good. Ham and pea soup was also really good with lots of ham and just the right amount of sweetness from the peas. Best of all everything was served piping hot!"

  • "We enjoy having an early dinner (5:30/6 p.m.) and can take advantage of happy hour prices or order from the regular menu. A personal favorite is the buffalo rib appetizer (large enough for my main course with an added side salad). Love the atmosphere, and Riedel wine glasses add a special touch. Saw families dining, too, so it appears to be family friendly. Wait staff is very friendly and courteous. Has become our favorite restaurant in town."

  • "This was the second time I have visited the Dakota Steak House. The menu is good with entrée starting at around $10 up to mid $40's. The food is quite good. The environment is nice with different seating options for groups. The dinner take a few minutes, so I would suggest not being in a hurry. If you have time, the experience is nice."

  • "We love this place. On this last visit, we just happened to notice several areas that had accumulated some light dust and possibly could be given a thorough cleaning to remain the first class place that it is..."

  • "Food was great, service horrible, waitress was clearly having an off night but still never managed to redeem herself. Glass of wine took over 20 minutes to get the first time, yet when our food finally arrived, an hour plus later, a different waitress brought it out and had another glass of wine back to us in less than five minutes. Bread took 20 minutes, it literally was like a progressive dinner....this was Memorial Day weekend, graduating night for the local high school if your are understaffed....PLAN!!"

  • "For reasons not entirely clear OPEN TABLE through whom I had made my Mother's Day brunch reservations had NOT contacted Dakotah Steakhouse to pass along my reservation. Thus, when we arrived,Dakotah Steakhouse had no record of us. Not to worry...they scurried and found a wonderful table for us,the celebration was salvaged by Dakotah's quick work NO THANKS to Open Table. "

  • "We enjoyed everything about the Dakotah Steakhouse. We're locals so we will go there more often now that we've dined there. Really enjoyed the buffalo rib appetizer. Hint: it's large with enough meat that it can serve as a main course if you add a side item like a cup of soup or a side salad, or could also be an appetizer to share (tender, fall off the bone goodness). My steak was cooked perfectly, and our waitress was great! Enjoyed the atmosphere, too. Even the restrooms were a pleasure to visit."

  • "We had a party of 6 and everyone was thoroughly impressed with the selection and how great the food was. A definite place to eat in Rapid City."

  • "Whether a special occasion or an "I just don't want to cook tonight", Dakotah Steakhouse is the place to go. The restaurant is beautiful and the food caters to each and every one's tastes - - -even the vegetarian! The wine list is great, and the desserts - - -fantastic. If you haven't been there, do yourself a favor and go!"

  • "We were impressed with the ambience of the restaurant. It has a centered fireplace, comfortable buffalo leather chairs, and a majestic, open cathedral-like ceiling. Our salads were tasty with sufficient dressing, and the hot bread was delicious. A pheasant-stuffed jalapeño pepper appetizer was tasty, but its breading was too heavy. Our entire party ordered steaks; two were beef and one bison. We all ordered medium rare, but the steaks were more rare in character. The bison ribeye had a significant amount of gristle and fat, and was somewhat tough. (This prides itself on availability of locally-raised bison, so we are surprised that bison tenderloin—filet mignon—was not available.) Bottom line: nice atmosphere; food needs improvement."

  • "I took my wife to Dakotah Steakhouse for her birthday. The food was very good. The service was a bit slow and we had to ask twice for sugar for our iced tea. We also had to ask twice for bread for our meal."

  • "Very good steak, which it should be for the price that is charged, and the service was outstanding. We will be back."
    Dined on 4/1/2014
  • "Just Amazing. Great food, quiet dining area, price is reasonable for quality (delicious) food. I would reserve online because this place should be booked out for months. I will come here every time I'm in South Dakota!"
    Dined on 3/24/2014
  • "The place is really nice inside. The service was slow, after each course was about 10 to 15 minutes before next course was at our table. By the time we got the main course we were not hungry anymore and the aged prime rib eye was an ok steak but nothing I would recommend. For the price it should have knocked me off my feet."
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "I loved it the service was good the only thing was I wanted a refill but didn't get one for a little bit but got one. The food tasted amazing, it was probably one of the few restaurants in rapid city that I would recommend and had no complaints about."
    Dined on 3/28/2014
  • "I really enjoyed the atmosphere and the pace that the food came out. Sometimes our server appeared a little flustered. I have a feeling she had not been there very long. She did a very good job explaining the menu and recommending things. A drink was forgotten and we a a dish to go that took longer than it should have. But in the scheme of things, that is very nit picky. The food was some of the best the we have eaten in the Black Hills area. The atmosphere was nice and unique."
    Dined on 3/26/2014
  • "Brandi was an outstanding server; competent and welcoming to all. The food was perfect and served expediently; the plating had artistry. The doors are always held open for a hearty welcome and thanks when leaving. We deem ourselves to be too old to "tip off" a server that it is a special occasion, but we were asked, and the treat was especially delicious. This is our favorite steakhouse!"
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "An enjoyable evening of conversation and great food. The specials were great. Our waitress was very attentive and kept our glasses full all night. The only thing I would have changed, would have been the temperature, which got slightly cool towards the end of our stay."

  • "This was not our first visit to the Dakota Steakhouse, we are return Foodies. On this evening, we were dining with friends and, although we had to rush due to an evening activity that we had scheduled, the experience was no less wonderful. The atmosphere is great, service is friendly and efficient, and the food is always good. Try the pheasant poppers! They are unique and tasty!"
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "Service was closer to what I would expect at a pub, not a higher end steakhouse. Could understand this a little bit if it was a very busy night with a lot of people waiting for a table. In fact it was a slow night with 3/4ths of the table open by the time we left. When we asked about the nightly special we were told it ran out the night before but was still posted on board by the main entrance. When making the reservation with Open Table I let them know we were celebrating our anniversary. This was never acknowledged by anyone."

  • "My husband and I have eaten here a few times and this place has become our new favorite place to go. The food is excellent, the atmosphere is wonderful, and the prices are reasonable. I definitely would recommend this restaurant to anyone."

  • "I've heard good and bad about this place. But my experience here was amazing. It's by far one of the nicest places I've ate in a long time. Food was awesome. And worth the money. Service was great. And the atmosphere was very welcoming. I highly recomend trying this restaurant."
