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.

    Got us to a nice booth in front of the fireplace in a separate area wit only two other booths so little noise level from the rest of the restaurant. Our server was fantastic, she was bright, alert and personable. The food was fantastic and cooked to perfection.

    The blonde lady at the front desk was very rude. We made a reservation online, she was upset that she mistook our reservation of 2 for a reservation of 12. Told us she was about to give our table away "in one minute" because we were not on time...although we were 20 mins early... We requested a quiet area but she was already upset so sat us in the middle of the room. An older couple were sat in an open booth about 20 mins after us and were upset they were unable to move easily in and out of it. Another table opened the blinds so the sun was blaring in our eyes. Our waitress was nice and the food was good though. Disliked the initial non-inviting environment.

    My first experience eating at Dakotah was great: However, this was my 2nd visit and it was a disappointment. I ordered a ribeye steak and it definitely was not a ribeye. The meat was dry and tough and I couldn’t eat my steak at all. My husband had the cowboy steak and it had 3 different temperatures in the way it was cooked. Part of his steak was medium well, another part was medium, and another part was rare. It was also a smaller cut than the cowboy steak he had on our first visit. Our waitress was friendly and assisted us in every way. We felt rushed bc we were one of the last people to leave the restaurant and the staff was already using the vacuum cleaner to start cleaning and took away our relaxing ambiance that we had the first time we ate here. We will eat here again but I will never order another ribeye steak from here. The fried Mac ‘n cheese was delicious and so were the fried walleye finger appetizer.

    It is one of the better upscale restaurants in Rapid City. The panko-crusted walleye was delicious along with the 3-sisters soup. The service was great, including the host who was able to get our party of 5 seated even after we arrived 15 min late. I'm looking forward to returning. J

    This was the best meal we had in our two week visit to South Dakota. The steaks and the walleye were fabulous and the sides were great as well. Service was top notch and a lovely atmosphere

    Food was very good. We had 3 steaks and 2 hamburgers. All enjoyed. Natalie S was our server and she was awesome. Recommend. They seem to run a wait for no reason so be sure to make a reservation.

    Wonderful on all counts! Our bartender was friendly and attentive. Our server was very helpful and her suggestions were perfect. Our salads were fresh and crisp - balsamic vinaigrette dressing was excellent. Our steaks were fixed to a perfect medium rare. We opted for the fry bread sundae - the perfect ending! Noise level was low even though we sat near the bar and the place was packed. We highly recommend Dakotah Steakhouse!!
