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.

Very basic menu and Bar. Limited cocktail choice, did not know what an expresso martini was. Fry oil needed changing.

Very comfortable steakhouse overall. Good food--walleye and bison rib. Dining service was exceptional. Bar service not so much, which is why I'm rating 4 instead of 5. We were made to feel as though we were imposing by ordering a drink at the bar as we waited for our table to become available.

I wasn't sure what to put here so I asked my wife randomly to describe her experience at Dakotah Steakhouse. She said "delicious". Seriously though they have great food and great service. We will eat here again next time we're in the Black Hills.

it was a special occasion, server said party paying for our dinner's card was declined. We provided our card then was told it was their error the card numbers had been entered wrong. It was embarrassing and awkward.

Fantastic restaurant that we highly recommend! The buffalo rib, buffalo steak, and filet mignon dinners were some of the best meals we've ever had. Nothing disappointed us! The service, ambiance, light music, cleanliness, and the entire dining experience out-did our highest expectations.

Understaffed, short some menu items, and my filet came out medium to medium well when I ordered it medium rare. Waited around too much for service but also for food. Dinner took 1 hour and 15 minutes. The waiter tried hard but they were understaffed and the kitchen did not perform well.

The atmosphere was a perfect steakhouse atmosphere. Appropriate noice and light levels with a perfect temperature.

Elizabeth was phenomenal and helped us pick the right cuts of meat. Friendly and engaging, every dining establishment should have a server like her.

Each meal was cooked exactly to our specifications and delicious. Will definitely be returning next time we are in Rapid City.

Alix our server was wonderful. Food was fantastic. We all had different steaks topped off with different desserts. We were visiting the area from out of state. Having just visited Devil’s Tower and driving back to Rapid City, one sees many cattle along the way. Not surprisingly, we all wanted a really good steak. No pressure! Dakotah Steakhouse did not disappoint! Would recommend this establishment to any and all. Not cheap, but fit our expectations exactly. Best yet, all steaks were done as requested, from medium rare to medium well.

We’re from Sioux Falls and said we would take a trip back to Rapid City just for Dakotah Steakhouse. The food was amazing, and everything had a different touch, like the fry bread and sweet butter brought out before our meal. Satisfied a craving I didn’t even know I had! Thanks for the great meal and amazing service:)

Great service! Our waitress noticed my husband was having a little bit of a hard time with seeing the menu and she promptly brought him a tiny flashlight and a pair of reading glasses. We had a laugh but were impressed by her attentiveness! The filet was amazing as was the chocolate cake.

Always stop here to eat when I’m in Rapid City. The Buffalo stew was awesome. But I always have to get the Kuchen desert. They have made it smaller and smaller over the years which I think Is a mistake as it’s something you don’t find anywhere else. It seems like something that’s so unique, you’d think they would keep it really special!!!
