Good food, friendly service

The salad bar is good - my colleagues like the Prime Rib a lot. Service is quick, friendly and efficient. Family friendly and a nice atmosphere

My husband and I had lunch at Dakota last week, and it was a very disappointing experience. Our waitress left a lot to be desired. She never checked to see if our steaks were done correctly (mine was overdone and tough). She refilled my husband's Coke with iced tea, she didn't ask us how our meals were, etc. We each... More

Ordered up the burger which was a half pound served on a nice Portuguese roll It was cooked just right (medium) and they had super hand cut fries as a side. Not sure about the dinner at this place , but I was a happy camper and the service was very good as well.

I had a nice steak cooked to perfection. The sides were large portions and tasted great. The waiter was attentive and refreshed my drink without being asked.

Delicious and fresh salad bar, amazing bread. Portions were large and the service was quick. We would recommend to travelers and families. Our waiter, Jordan, was so good with our toddler grandson and that made the evening truly enjoyable.

Came here with family the night before flying out of Hartford. Service was excellent, waitress very attentive. Food quality was very good. I had a grilled chicken sandwich. The salad bar has a very nice variety of items and I would recommend it.

Had a agency anniversary party here and the staff could not have not have been more helpful! They helped us set up and then they set up for our cocktail hour and their appetizers were absolutely excellent. The Scallop wrapped bacon was the best I had ever had with large wonderful scallops completely wrapped with the slice of bacon, perfect,... More

Some thought has gone into the decor, very Wild West , Arizona, etc. I only choose to have hamburger once on any trip to the U.S. and I am glad I chose this restaurant to have it. Buffalo instead of beef for a change. Staff appeared to be very attentive.

We were a party of 8 adults and 3 children for Saturday morning brunch. Bacon and eggs and waffles, oh my! In addition to Dakota's traditionally satisfying salad bar, we enjoyed a smoked fish (salmon and trout) bar with all the yummy bits (i.e. - red onion, capers), omelet station, waffle bar, carving station and a dessert bar with so...

Sat in the bar area to take advantage of "happy hour" drink prices. $6.00 for a generic martini, some appetizer specials but that is it. Ordered a pricey steak and it was overlooked! Salad bar was very picked over. Mashed sweet potatoes were nothing great! Bartender was wonderful but the steaks were definitely not worth the hefty bill! I'd not... More
