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.

    Kat was an excellent server! We felt welcomed, acknowledged and well taken care of. She made my daughter feel special on her 18th Birthday and we felt like V I Ps! The food was delicious as always and the hostess sat us in a very cozy, more private booth up by the cozy fireplace.

    We went here on the recommendation from a friend who was raving about the aged steaks. The ribeye I had was the priciest mediocre steak I've ever eaten, and my wife said her filet mignon was okay but she's had better (for less). Nothing special about the steaks as far as we could tell. The rest of the food was okay to good, but I wouldn't say it was exceptional. Considering what we paid for our meal, which was quite a bit, I don't think we'll try this again. It might have been a one-off experience, but I'm not so sure. I'm afraid I can't recommend Dakotah Steakhouse with a clear conscience considering what it will cost you.

    I have been to several states and eaten at different restaurants, so my idea of fine dining is a little different. I could not really taste the honey butter very well and the broiled Shimp add-on w/garlic butter was tasteless. The wedge salad was not great either, way too much lettuce and the toppings just were ok. Not really sure why such a bit plate is used for a 10oz. steak and 3 asparagus. I will say the steak was cooked quite well, wish there were better topping choices for your steak. Cannot say I would come back, it was decent, but overpriced I feel for what you got. Our waiter was expectational!

    The food and service was great. One steak was over done due to a mixup in the kitchen but they went out of their way to make it right. Always a great experience at Dakota Steakhouse!

    Absolutely WONDERFUL food. We had Bison Ravioli (they were out of Elk) which was delectable, and the dry aged Prime Rib-cooked perfectly. Service was perfect, friendly and pleasant. Nice Ambience, a decent wine selection, and well made cocktails.

    it feels like a chain, but it’s the only current location for this Soso steakhouse… I do like the fact that they honor South Dakota, artists and western artists threw out the multiple dining rooms. The menu offerings seem to show a lot of diversity, though a part of me would like to see more diverse appetizer menu items… And a more creative approach to its salads. I also felt that the wine list was a little shallow, and in some places a bit over priced… And I think that they could improve the offerings, explore better lower, end, and higher end options… None of this is a criticism, but for a steakhouse the towns itself is one of the top 10 in the country, I have to question where that data is coming from. it’s proximity to the comfort inn and suites. Suggest that it’s catering to traveling business people or otherwise… As a local and someone who is hoping that Rapid City continues to push, it’s culinary options… I expected more. No matter what it was a good dinner, it just should’ve been better!

    I got the 12oz prime rib dinner and was given a very generous portion. The bacon wrapped Buffalo filet was ordered by my boyfriend and was delicious. The grilled balsamic glazed carrots are incredible for a side dish. Worth the visit!
