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.
Named "Best Restaurant in South Dakota" 2015 by Business Insider
When only the most tender cut will satisfy.
Broiled in butter sauce and served with orange honey sauce.
Bacon Wrapped Asparagus
Great food, steaks in particular. The only negative complaint is they specifically state on menu and social sites you can pick your own ribeye cut by weight and thickness. Not true. You can pick weight but you get whatever thickness it was already cut to. I wanted 1 3/4. I got maybe inch. Not too happy about that. Don't state that Choice if its not available.
Food was fantastic. I strongly recommend it. Exactly as advertised
We both had the Walleye filet lightly breaded with seasoned bread crumbs and it was delicious! Our baked potatoes, while large and tasty, were barely warm by the time they were served to us. And the arugula served on the plate with the walleye was a little too greasy for my taste. But other than that, the salad and soup we had were great and we enjoyed the meal very much.
Great bison steak - very nice atmosphere
Great steaks and quality was high. Eapecially enjoyed bison.
The decor is eclectic, the ambience was lovely, and the service was stellar. The food was very, very good but just a tad below excellent. Could be that I'm comparing it with Northeast and West Coast establishments. Still, probably be the best place in the Rapid City area that I have eaten at over the last week or so.
The steak was charred and the asparagus had not been trimmed. Not impressed with the quality for the price. The kuchen tasted nothing like genuine kuchen.
This is our favorite place to eat steak, not sure if the portion size reduction is due to the social distance rules or saving money on supplies, but it was the first time we walked away still a little hungry...maybe they had a rally menu? Will not go back for awhile...
This was a great way to end our week in South Dakota. Derek our server did his job very well. Food was fantastic and all five of us really enjoyed our evening at Dakota Steakhouse.
Food was very good. I had the small filet
It was cooked correctly and tasted good.
My husband had the walleye which was also good.
It was my Birthday. It was noted as so.
The Birthday was acknowledged by the hostess only. Not by the server.
Everything else was good.
Derek our server was great! We had the Rebye Stake, sparagus wrapped in bacon, cooked to perfection. We also have the onion steak soup and apple crispy for dessert. The quality of the meat was comparable to Kobe beef. The whole experienced was outstanding from beginning to end!
We enjoyed our experience here at the Dakotah. The service by Christine was excellent, she was very knowledgeable of the menu and helpful. Because it wasn't to busy se was able to visit with us and help explain the local area. Being new here we found her information useful. The food was very good along with the atmosphere. We will return.
Yummy beef and unique sides to compliment any meal!
Excellent food and atmosphere. Easy to visit with quiet country music in the background.
Food and service were really good. Margarita was disappointing but then again, they aren’t known for their margaritas
The walleye appetizer is wonderful, the fry bread is wonderful, the filet is wonderful.
I think it was an ok restaurant. In my opinion it was a bit overpriced for the food we received. Our waitress was friendly.
The food at Dakotah Steakhouse was excellent. The presentation of the entre was simple but the taste was excellent. The staff at the front door was not enthusiastic and we felt like it was their privilege of being there versus customer satisfaction. The walleye finger appetizers were fried perfectly with an excellent sauce.
The cowboy ribeye was excellent. Definitely enough for two. The fried mac and cheese was also great.
Awesome food. We loved this place! Ate there 3 times on our week visit to Dakota! We had filets each time and they were delicious. The corn was delicious also. Would definitely eat there every chance we get.
Good food, great service, great drinks.
The decor was stunning and the ambience was relaxing. We were serviced promptly and with great attention to our preferences. Can’t wait to go back!
First time and exceeded expectations. We had a reservation and were seated upon arrival. Waitress was friendly and helpful. Steaks were cooked to perfection. Making a choice for dessert was difficult as there all looked tempting. Creme brulee and Apple crisp were are choices. Excellent.
Steak was very good, Cooked to correct temperature. Service and sides were below average.
Our server Elizabeth was wonderful. Her recommendations were perfect. The food was delicious and everything was freshly made.
Everything was good, the staff was polite and attentive. The prices are alright for a steakhouse. I was not a big fan of their salads, but otherwise everything was quite good.
We were there for a birthday meal. It was very quiet in the restaurant but not enough servers. We had to wait 35 minutes for our first drinks to arrive. Our server then took a very long time to get to us to take our food order. When our food eventually did arrive, we had to wait longer again for cutlery that he’d forgotten to provide. Really bad service - the worst we’ve received anywhere in the US. Food was ok but sides were cold, probably due to our wait time rather than the chef! Expected much more for their price point and after reading positive reviews. Perhaps we just didn’t get the right waiter, but I wouldn’t go back and sorry to say I wouldn’t recommend.
Excellent place! Delicious food. They were really kind with us, we wanted to put some ballons to decorate the table to celebrate the birthday of a friend, and they even helped us.
Two in our party ordered steaks, one filet and one sirloin, both were ordered rare and they were over cooked. Close to medium. My prime rib was excellent, perfect and exactly medium rare. We liked the fried Mac and cheese as well. We liked the restaurant overall but it’s disappointing when a steakhouse doesn’t cook streak correctly.
My boyfriend and I love eating here! We’ve had the same waiter both times and he’s awesome! I actually tried the salmon, and didn’t really care for it. It’s dry and just has that fishy taste. I know it’s a fish lol but it was just stronger than what it normally is. Tomahawk, delicious as always!
The Walleye appetizer was excellent--try it!!! My filet with mushrooms was quite good and my wife's sockeye salmon was a hit with her!!!
A very nice place--would definitely go back should we return to Rapid City.
Our server was awesome! The food was horrible. We each got the Buffalo Steak. The meat was just poor quality and way over priced for that quality.
Just not the high end steakhouse we were looking form. We would have been happier at OutBack...
Great food. Awesome service. Derek was an awesome server
Nice vacation meal
Excellent food and drinks! Highly recommend this place. Thanks.
Had to go ask for utensils and napkins. Did not receive water. Honestly, I come from the best beef state in America, Nebraska and know how to cook a proper aged steak. For the money it was just okay. Would I recommend it?, sure...but it’s nothing to hang your hat on.
Excellent food a the service was great!
Ther service and atmosphere were fantastic. The good was really good but kind difficult to eat at times and couldve been prepared a little better. Overall though was a great experience and i would definatly go again!
