    Disappointed in the food. Steaks sub par for this type of establishment (steakhouse); One 16 oz ribeye had 4 oz of fat, one ribeye was chewy and undercooked, not even tasty. French onion soup, wasn’t even soup but onion paste.

    Burger was good, good price. The salad was awful, some of the pieces were brown, needs more in it, cucumbers, egg, etc. prices for steaks are ridiculously expensive.

    The food was delicious except for the side of Caesar salad. Sadly, the house made dressing was horrible and I ended up just eating the plain croutons and slices of parmesan cheese. Everyone one else at my table loved their meal.

    The food was good. The value of it made it difficult. For the price you pay I would expect more but was good overall. If the prices were cheaper it would definitely be a go to for dining. I don’t see myself going frequently. For being a quiet place it was kind of distracting. Being able to hear the kitchen and the bar was a little distracting. I’ve been to noisier places like Texas Roadhouse that didn’t bother me as much. It was quiet but you could in turn hear everything going on.

    I used a gift card to try Sear out. If you want a good steak in Rapid, go to the Longhorn Steakhouse at Rushmore Crossing. The steaks are better, for literally half the price.

    This was our first time at Sear, and we were very impressed with the quality of the food and the service! Our waitress was knowledgeable about the menu and very attentive and friendly. Food was just superb, steaks done to order, salads and sides delicious as well. Portions were generous as well! Highly recommend this place!

    The renovation turned out beautiful and it was the first time we went there after the reopening. The service was excellent but the food was the worst we’ve had in a long time. We both ordered ribeye steaks and had them medium and medium rare. One was so raw it was literally cold to touch and super raw inside and the other steak was very rare. The establishment “Shooters” was always our place to go when we went out to eat but we’ll never go back there again. Very sad they changed it and it went downhill.

    Nice flavors, food was not overly warm- other than the fries that came with the Steak special (which was a little odd combination to begin with). Steak was undercooked. Drinks were not great but overall food was good enough to return.

    This was our first visit to Sear. It was my wife’s birthday so expectations were high. We greeted by polite staff and seated immediately. The atmosphere was quiet but there was seasonal music playing. We both ordered steak filet and New York cut. Both steaks were cooked perfectly. All of the food was delicious and served promptly. This is a new restaurant in the area and one can tell they are making a sincere effort to provide the best experience possible. Give them a try, you won’t be disappointed. Definitely will return in the near future.

    Our waiter and the front desk staff were wonderful. The food was great and was looking forward to my leftovers. Unfortunately we left it on the table. We called the restaurant immediately and turned around to go get our food, but they had already thrown it out - in just a few minutes. This was the only disappointing part is the evening.

    There were five of us dining. We all enjoyed our meal but I would say the Pasta dish was a bit dry. The Half Chicken, as well as the Sirloin Steak was delish. I will definitely be back to try some other dishes. Our waiter did an excellent job.

    Had a great experience. The waitress was very very good. We had a slight snafu with ordering wine, where we ordered a bottle but were initially only given a glass. The waitress confirmed she had put in a bottle, it was the bar that had it wrong. I wish they had more than one option for a Malbec. Never saw a maître d’ or manager checking in on us. The food was very good, almost incredible. Would recommend. I could see that if we had gone on a weekend, it could be very noisy.

    We enjoyed our dinner. The service was exceptional and the menu was hard to choose from because such good steaks and entrees. Noise level is better than most restaurants in town. We could talk and enjoy our meal. The Beef Rib is unreal. Delicious and generous serving. Don’t forget the pumpkin cheesecake. Best steak house in Rapid City. Definitely will be going back!

    All in all I give this restaurant a 5 because you can tell they are trying. Food was on point. Service as well. Service from Ryan was excellent. Food was very good: filet was tasty and price point very similar to restaurants in the same category (DelMonico), pumpkin cheesecake was probably the best I’ve had in a while. Ambience lacked. For the size restaurant, there were many tables, creating a louder than expected ambience. The lighting was brighter than what they were aiming for, I believe. The restaurant was nicely updated with new furniture, flooring and decor from the previous restaurant. A solid addition to the list of restaurants in Rapid, for sure. Best of luck for a successful endeavor.

    Convenient to those living on the west side of Rapid City. Beautiful decor. Limited steakhouse menu featuring locally sourced ingredients. Attentive service although our table was not cleared of finished dishes. It was evident busing service was not occurring anywhere in the restaurant. We enjoyed our meal and plan to return.

    Excellent food made from local South Dakota and Wyoming sources. Dishes are unique but very delightful. Ambience is between high end diner and formal which makes it a very comfortable place. It is very easy to go with friends and have a conversation.
