Hi Joseph, you are correct, an hour is way too long on the phone. Not sure why that took so long but I would also suggest that we have on-line reservation capabilities though our website and Facebook page. (www.Dakotarockyhill.com) Thank you for your patience. More

First time in the area, normally stay in Glastonbury. Recommended by hotel front desk. Quick and friendly service. Burger was excellent although the bun was similar to a pancake. Soup was very good. I was fairly impressed.

Refreshing hunting lodge decor for this area greeted us. Salad bar was well stocked, fresh and clean. Dinner bread was a bit crispy, almost felt toasted. Filet, chicken and salmon all were presented nicely. Steak was well seasoned and prepared. Apple crisp a la mode was a tasty finish! Staff was professional, prompt and friendly even during training. I recommend... More

Enjoyed Sunday Brunch with my family. Our server Brittany was very pleasant, and attentive. The food was fresh and hot. My favorite was the roast beef, sliced thin with a side of horseradish sauce. Delicious and tender! Love the breakfast type foods for brunch, which they mostly serve. The only thing my husband commented on, was the waffles were sort... More

Dakota is a great spot to walk into on a cold night; their fireplaces and warm wood décor are welcoming. I agree with other reviewers that this restaurant lends itself to feel like a chain steakhouse, I personally was looking for that when I saw the sign off the highway. I didn’t want to pay $50 to eat dinner by... More

Hi Jason, just to further clarify, the restaurants that have been slowly closing were owned by a different company. The owners of the Dakota of Rocky Hill are the original owners of this restaurant and we have no intention nor need to close. More
