Have eaten here a number of times, and each has been wonderful. Great selection on the menu, which varies during the year. Some of the best food, we've eaten. Great wine selection. Staff is professional, thorough and very courteous. The chef has some wonderful menu items, and the desserts are incredible. If in town, be sure to stop.

Had a wonderful anniversary lunch. I was disappointed that they no longer have liver and onions on the menu, but the redfish was outstanding as was the service and ambiance.

I went to Dakota with 11 business contacts. It was a great environment for our team. The Lump crab meat and brie soup is a must!

Had lunch here with friends. Food was very good. Not too crowded at lunch so service was over the top. Menu has variety of choices.

I'm a great fan of the famous lamb nachos (big enough to share) and the soft-shelled crab. There's also a good wine list. Great service too. A great experience. At the time of writing this review, there is a photo on the front page of their website showing one of these so-called "hallelujah crabs." My crab looked just like that,... More

Doesn't matter what you order, the food is great. Service,also. Brie and crabmeat soup must be tried. Pricey, but great. Home made coconut cake to die for.

The steak wasn't mind blowing and this place is pricey. I'd head over to Gallagher's at this price point. I will say service was good though.

Everything was amazing... favorites of the evening were the filet, seafood mixed grill and crab soup! We will be going back again next time we are in town.

Unfortunately the food was disappointing. My husband had the lamb that was a little tough and tasted a little gamey. I had the veal and nothing special. The drinks and dessert were very good.
