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're 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've 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.

Always a favorite. Walleye fingers are a definite must.

We had the special of the night, Chateaubriand, and it was excellent! The drinks were good, the service was great, we enjoyed the whole experience. This is about the 3rd or 4th time we've been here and has been a great experience each time.

Mixed review. The wine selection was very nice. However my dad asked about a hot brandy. They couldn’t do it. Asked about hot buttered rum. No luck. Another party asked for JB scotch and water. They didn’t have that either. So for an upper scale restaurant their bar offerings were mediocre at best.

We had the petite filet. It was cooked very well and tasty. I ordered the asparagus as a side. It was way over cooked and mushy. It was very disappointing. Three spears of asparagus wrapped in bacon but you could tell it was cooked up ahead and held on heat for a long time. If it weren’t a business dinner I would have sent it back. Then I ordered herb tea with no caffeine. They brought me a box of tazo tea, nice...not!! Every tea had caffeine. I did send that back and the waitress brought me two individual tea bags.

I feel that there is definitely room for improvement in the details. The prices are high enough that I would expect a better experience.

The food, service and atmosphere were all outstanding as they have been every time we eat at Dakotah Steakhouse. This is out favorite steakhouse in all of the Black Hills. We have brought our family from California and Australia there in the past and all of them were very impressed. On the most recent visit our waitress Tallulah provided truly exceptional service.

The food and service were both fabulous. The New York strip was one of the best we have ever had. Nice wine list and not terribly overpriced. Would definitely eat there again.

We had a wonderful meal and great service. We prefer to sit in a booth at the bar. It’s quieter and we like the seating.

Excellent meal and service. Our party had different special dietary requirements and they did a great job with each of the needs. Food was delicious and meal was perfect. Very impressed.

We were very satisfied with the quality of the food and the ambiance. We visited on Christmas Eve, the food was delicious, and the staff never made us feel rushed through tour the evening.

Their names says Steakhouse but you can get a better steak at Longhorns just an exit away for 1/2 the price. Overall, the meals we had were very average in flavor. Nothing stands out for a 40 dollar rib eye or New York strip. Won't be going back.

Neither of us are big beef eaters, so we ordered the Prime Rib to split between us. The prime was melt in the mouth, but the fat was not charcoaled enough. The bacon-wrapped asparagus was good, but bacon needed to be wrapped more than just around the middle of the bundle.
