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.

    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!

    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!

    The meal was delicious. Emily was our server and she was definitely a service based leader. The Walleye Fish was cooked perfectly. We sat in a cozy quiet area with a fireplace. The 7 oz filet was juicy and tender. We will return for another meal.

    This was our second time here. I enjoyed our first encounter more. Steak was undercooked. Sides were good. Caesar salad is more deconstructed than we remembered and just ok. Waiter seemed as though we were a bother to him and seemed mad when we didn’t order dessert. Might give them one more try to see which side they fall on.

    Disappointing visit, my husband chose Dakota SH for his birthday dinner I booked a table through open table, the host seating us was miserable not even a fake smile from her , our server was super pushy we even told him we are not in a hurry and wanted to have a drink first , but he kept coming over & pushing for our order, even when our dinner arrived & we were eating he was over again asking us what we wanted for dessert, completely annoying, thank god my husband enjoyed his food no complaints, but my burger was horrible, terrible stale bread & dry meat, anyway not returning anytime soon, we are locals and live close , but the staff have got to smile & chill a bit

    We stopped for an early dinner and they were barely open but already getting busy. Friendly, helpful staff from the hostess who greeted us to the gal who seated us to our server, Emily, who was amazing. The food was delicious and just the right portion. While the chef added his/her own touch to the dishes nothing was so exotic that it put me off trying it. The walleye was wonderful and my husband enjoyed his buffalo rib which he said was juicy if a bit tough. If we were in the area we would definitely become regulars but unfortunately our dinner was on our last night in Rapid City.

    Food was excellent, and server was informative. However, he left used plates and glasses on the table that one would not expect in this caliber of a restaurant. The hostess and bartender were also perfunctory and not very pleasant.
