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.

    Atmosphere is amazing; great archetecture and decor. Prices are on the higher side, but on average the food that you get is worth it. Fry bread was a bit greasy which made me sad, but overall a good place to eat. I will definitely go back.

    Third time eating here. The service and food are still 5/5 stars. My wife and I love it here. My wife ordered the strip and I ordered the big Ribeye on the bone. Everything was cooked to perfection. The service was outstanding. Also, I want to give a shout out to the great hostesses who greet you when you arrive and seated us They are always such a welcome smiling face. So accommodating and friendly. Thank you for another perfect date night.

    Best prime rib French dip EVER! The Caesar salad was disappointing. Dressing lacked imagination. Both soups needed to be thinner.

    One couldn't ask for a nicer hostess or waitress. The feeling of welcome was genuine. The food was excellent. We chose Dakotah Steakhouse because of their selection of iconic South Dakota dishes. We chose well. This is a MUST destination for the next time we are in the area.

    Our server could have been more attentive but overall she was okay. My main complaint was that the steak wasn’t seasoned well at all. I think they thought by putting some sauce on the plate would fix this but a little salt would have gone a long way! The ambiance was nice!

    Unfortunately a typical experience for a woman dining alone. NO attention! But all the tables around me, plenty! They even took my silverware and started clearing even though I left my phone and keys on the table! I’m normally a generous tipper, I still tipped 20%. I just won’t go back.

    Anthonys was excellent. Our table overlooked the Spokane waterfall. The food was perfectly prepared, served promptly, and tasted delicious. Our waiter was extremely helpful, gave us plenty of attention, and made excellent suggestions on what to order. I would recommend Anthonys to anyone looking for a great overall dining experience. We plan to go back before we leave the area in the next few days.

    Have been here before and have had excellent food and service. Service and staff this time were fantastic. Both my wife and I ordered the Bison Tenderloin, same as in past visits. Ordered Medium Rare as in the past, always moist and tender. Came Medium well and was dry. For the price it should have been perfect. Ordered apple crisp for desert. Served in a bowl with lots of fake whipped cream. Over cooked so bad it was apple soup and absolutely no "crisp" to be found. Not worth eating. I am hoping it was just the cooks having a bad night, but $52 for each Tenderloin and $10 desert, I must say I was disappointed in the food quality v.s. price points. There are other places in the region where you can get 2 tenderloin meals with desert and drinks for 1/2 this price. I think I will drive a few extra miles next time.

    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.
