Me and my family, went to Dakota for dinner this Wednesday. it was our first time, so we did not know what to expect. We had an absolutely wonderful time! Our server Leah was fantastic; she answered all of our questions and was very polite; she cheeked on us often and made us feel welcome. The food was great too,... More

I found this place to be a lot like a Texas Roadhouse or Longhorns. The steak was what you'd expect from a chain...maybe a little too salty. Clam chowder was good, but again...very generic. Staff was friendly and prices weren't ridiculous. Would I go again? Probably not. I was hoping for something different and this wasn't it.

Have had many meals at this Dakota with no complaints. Dinner last night on a busy Saturday. Steak undercooked (I ordered medium). Sent it back. Steak returned quickly, still undercooked. Meanwhile my friend had to wait to eat her dinner. Manager arguing with me twice over what she thinks is the correct pinkness in steak. At this point I'm rather... More

We were directed to the Dakota by the desk clerk of the nearby Comfort Inn and had a very pleasant dinner. It was a Wednesday night and it was moderately busy but we were quickly shown to our table and had excellent service. The salad bar has many selections and the veggies are all crisp and fresh. The home made... More

I visited Dakota late one night (around 9:30pm) on a Friday. It was empty. It looked like they were preparing to close. My server took a drink order and seemed to take a little longer than I would expect, considering the place was empty. As I was getting up to leave, she finally arrived with my beverage. I ordered a... More

Nothing spectacular, pretty much a chain steak house. We had ordered four dinners, three of them where ok and one of them was well well done. We have been to a lot of steak houses and when my wife asks for a medium well, the cooks normally get it right with a nice juicy medium well done steak. This steak... More

Just a pair of Seniors out for Friday lunch at a spectacular venue. It is just a WOW place! But then we became a little dubious since we were the ONLY customers. Unfortunately the wonderful decor/architecture/historical displays/ atmosphere were the only positives. The steak and mashed potatoes were a shocking presentation: my husband received a small oval platter HALF EMPTY.... More

Neither particularly good nor bad. It is just another chain eatery. Some interesting menu choices. Food was good, service reasonable. A bit pricey fro chain food, but whatever. Only real complaint. Lord was it dark in there. I was not sure if I was cutting the steak or cutting of body parts in the dark.

Hi Al, thank you taking the time to share your experience. Just to set the record straight, Dakota is not a chain. There is only one and we are independently owned. As an independent restaurant we cut all steaks on premise, make our own bread and all of our desserts. Not sure what gave you that chain feel but we... More

I attended a nice luncheon here at Dakota Steakhouse. Our group if about 20 were seated in our own room, with a very attentive waitstaff. I enjoyed the turkey wrap with cranberry mayo, very tasted. It was served with a bowl of cole slaw. The service, food were very good and the price was reasonable. Some of the other meals... More

Thank you for the review Bill. As you may have noticed, we have several dining rooms to choose from so group functions tend to work out very well. I'm glad to hear you enjoyed yourself. We look forward to seeing you again soon. More
