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 are 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 have 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.

Service was good, little slower than normal. Appetizers were great. My streak was perfect, wife was good but not perfect, slightly chewy. Overall still always a great dinner.

The only reason I didn't give it a five star in ambience is because the fireplace should be centered in the dining area for more to be seated around. Otherwise, food and service was outstanding.

The food was outstanding. They have a note in their menu saying they are the region's best steakhouse, and by the way their food tastes, they likely have a strong claim to that statement. We will go again if ever in the area!

I had a great experience. Our waiter was polite, knowledgeable, and attentive. Their fry bread is amazing. The Buffalo BBQ rib was tender; BBQ sauce was acidic and tandy.

The service was fast and attentive. The filet was outstanding, as was the rib eye.
Cooked exactly as ordered, brought to the table still hot, the steaks were not only
delicious, the servings were generous.

The onion rings were pretty bland. The mashed potatoes were average at best. The Cowboy Ribeye was one of the toughest ribeyes I have ever eaten. I'm not entirely sure where the hype comes from. For the price and reviews, I expected it to be one of the best dining experiences of Rapid City. It's not. The service was great. It's a shame the food didn't match.

Ordered a sirloin and the chicken sandwich. Split them with my wife. We finished the chicken sandwich and weren’t really interested in the undercooked steak. It just wasn’t exciting for a steakhouse I guess.

Visiting from another state and wanted to eat buffalo. Had the buffalo rib. It wasn't falling off the bone but it was still very good. The BBQ sauce accompaniment was too sweet and took away from the flavor of buffalo so did not use it. The fry bread served with the meal was awesome.

Very nice restaurant but beer was flat so had to exchange them. Baked potato was room temperature. Our server was sweet but vanished for extended periods of time. It was nice but probably wouldn’t return.

35th wedding anniversary. Food was excellent. The only disappointing thing is I was very thirsty for a cocktail and when we arrived and ordered our drinks they only had wine and beer. We both would have preferred a mixed drink and if we would’ve known this we would’ve booked at another restaurant. Beer and wine only 👎
