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.

    It was my first time dining at Dakota Steakhouse. The restaurant is beautiful, the service was impeccable, and the food was absolutely delicious. The atmosphere was warm and inviting. We will definitely be returning.

    We both had the 10 oz. sirloin which was EXCELLENT. Cooked to perfection and loved the onion straws on top. Indian fry bread was great as well, and the flavored butter was a nice tough. Excellent service as well.

    Our waitress was slow. We waited forever for our just drinks, then our food shows up and we needed refills had to wait again. Our food was ok. We have had better. We have eaten here several times and it’s always been five stars.

    Made reservations for a Valentine’s Day dinner. I was sat in the bar area. Our waitress didn’t speak to us much - no name, no mentioned specials. I had to ask for the specials. We were at our table for 65 minutes prior to receiving our meal and had to quickly eat to make it to an event we had tickets to. Overall the food was great but we ate our meal in 10 minutes. I frequent this restaurant a lot and spend over $1000 every 3 months for work gift cards. This is the worst service I have had. Management needs to really look at what is going on.

    Waitress worst ever. Did not know what soup was!!! My God what kind of wait person does not guests how they are or introduce themselves with their name! You definitely need to monitor the interaction and how the wait staff handle themselves with your customers. Frankly, I (James wife) was appalled. She was not attentive to our table.

    All round great dining experience! Recommend making reservations as we walked in door and were seated immediately instead of waiting in long line. Steaks (strip) were delicious, cooked to perfection and served while still hot. Service (Carolyn) checked us regularly, was on the spot timing with food/drinks and provided recommendations (at our request) that were 100% accurate. Menu prices were very reasonable compared to other steak houses in Rapid City area. Our second visit and will for sure return.

    Food was excellent as always. I normally get the prime rib since it's the best in town but opted for the Cowboy bone this time. It's a bit spendy but well worth it in my opinion. It's my new favorite if I'm starving. I was pretty hungry and usually can eat a lot but couldn't quite finish this steak. It is enormous.

    Our server was too green to be on her own. Took 15 minutes to get a drink. She took our food order then we had to force our drink order. I wanted a draft beer, but I was told that there wasn’t draft beer. Yet I saw plenty of draft beer around. The food was great as usual.

    This was a very nice dining experience. The food was good, but I don't remember it being super memorable. Better than other restaurants in the area though. The staff was nice and attentive. The drinks were decent but didn't taste like top shelf for their standard drinks. This is a place I've gone twice and plan to go to again.

    Fantastic selection of cuts, all prepped and cooked perfectly. Great sear and center color on the meat. Serving staff was friendly, knowledgeable, and gracious. Wine selections top notch with very reasonable markup from retail. Overall, the best dinner I have had in a long time...don't skip on the sage ice cream...you will regret it forever!

    Very rarely does everything fall into place perfectly as well as something exceeding your expectations. Well, Dakotah Steakhouse did. From the time we walked through the door we were greeted by an outstanding front of house staff. They were delightful and accommodating. Moving to our superior server Cole. Quite frankly, he delivered 5 stars across the board. His recommendations were spot on. His attitude was exceptional. His service was perfect. It's people like Cole that restore my faith in American exceptionalism and excellence. The food is no exception. We had the bison and filet mignon, three sisters soup, the fry bread, the glazed carrots everything worthy of a Michelin Star. The steaks were cooked perfectly. I give hard criticism on how meat is cooked, and this meat was nothing less than outstanding. Everyone from the back of house and front of house. Great work!!! and Thank you!!! The experience will bring us back for more and more. That's how you operate a restaurant and that's how you cook your delicious steaks. God bless America and God bless Dakotah Steakhouse!!!

    The food was amazing here along with the ambience. The only reason I didn’t give it a 5 star was the waitress just didn’t seem happy , maybe just having a bad day. We also had to wait for our drinks and my husband asked for butter and by the time he got it his potato was cold. I would try it again cu the food and just hope for a happier waitress.

    Ive been to the Dakotah Steakhouse a few times and was pretty disappointed this time. The service was fine but my wife and I both had the dry aged ribeye cooked medium and they burnt the outside of the steak. For a $60 steak I expect better
