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.

    The food was delicious and we had a fantastic server. We shared the chateaubriand, which was excellent. Our friend got the bacon wrapped buffalo filet and we all shared - it was excellent!

    Very good steakhouse. From our server to the main course 4.8 stars. We tried 3 different appetizers and just average Sports bar food at best even thou they try to spice it up with exotic names. Please step up that part of the menu. 5 stars if not for the bar food apps.

    First time to Dakotah. Nice selection of wines by glass and draft beers. Wonderful service from Ashley!! Bison/Buffalo bone was so tender and delicious. Aged ribeye was flavorful but not much to it as lots of fat, grizzle and tough veins

    They were out of one of the appetizers we wanted to try, but we got the buffalo skewers. They were pretty good. Our salads were pretty plain. We each got a steak and they were pretty good. Baked potato and mashed potatoes were fine as well. Our drinks took over 20 minutes to get from the bar and our server checked on us once the entire time we were there. To be fair, we’re super low maintenance people but it would’ve been nice to have the chance to ask for some things we would’ve liked to have had (like refills). We weren’t blown away with the experience, but the food tasted fine.

    Excellent ribeye and the mashed potatoes were so tasty. We started with the New England clam chowder which was also amazing. Our waitress, and all the people we encountered, were very professional and knowledgeable regarding the menu. I highly recommend this steakhouse, wish there was one in Tennessee!

    A couple of disappointments here. Prime rib was brought out cold, reheated and overcooked. It was taken off the tab but that does not save the evening. The Filet was overcooked and tough. The KC Strip steak was bland and almost tasteless even though it was cooked as ordered. We got the feeling the B team was in the kitchen. The waitress tried her best to salvage our dinner; she was attentive and cheerful but had to apologize repeatedly for the food which wasn't her doing. Sorry folks, but it was sub-par for the prices.

    Great food C but obviously under staffed. Tried to get a drink before dinner and the bartender totally ignored us and two other folks. I understand she was trying to get people at the bar but she should have told all of us she was sorry and why. Started the evening out wing. Cig or water more then made up for that bad service episode.

    Our first time going to Dakotah Steakhouse and we were very well served. The seating was excellent and unexpected to find we sat where my husbands' grandfathers framed picture was hanging. Never expected that. We are returning and it will now be our go-to place.

    My wife and I have dinner at the Dakota Steakhouse each visit we make to Rapid City, at least twice a year... This time things were different, food has always been good but this time everything was outstanding, much better than ever before. We inquired with the server as to maybe why so much better than in the past and we were informed the place was under new management... This steakhouse has always been our 2nd favorite place to have dinner in Rapid, now it has become our #1 place.

    We always stop here on our drive out west! The filet was outstanding and seasoned to perfection. I also had a cup of three sisters soup which up until last year I had never tasted before. Wonderful! The onion rings are massive! It’s impossible to be neat while eating them :). They are by far the best onion rings I’ve ever had. Our waitress obliged me with a side of barbecue sauce for dunking. No dessert today as we were stuffed! See you again next year!
