Description: We"ve always believed that dining should be a social occasion, a time when friends, family, and coworkers can enjoy great conversation over a great meal. We believe in supporting our local artisans and staying connected to our Black Hills community. At a time when the area is growing and expanding, we're striving to keep the flavor of the region alive. Inspired by the history of this area, both the aesthetics of the building and the diversity of the menu are true to our local roots, something no nation-wide franchise can duplicate. Certainly, there are other steakhouses out there, but none like ours. From the first design to the actual construction, we've focused on creating a balance between upscale dining and a casual atmosphere-crafting a chic steakhouse where the kids are welcome too. The rest is easy-buy the very best meat possible and prepare it correctly.

This restaurant was right next door to our motel. Outside it has a very interesting statue of a buffalo - quite unique. Inside the decor is excellent. The restaurant has cloth napkins and comfortable seating. We were pleasantly surprised by the reasonable prices (e.g. $17 for a 12 oz sirloin + salad + bun + side order) and the quality... More

The Dakotah Steakhouse was in the parking lot of our hotel. We decided after traveling 10 1/2 hours to give it a try. It was very worth while. The food was FABULOUS! We loved it so much that we actually ended up eating there twice!

WE liked the place so much we went 3 times.. The staff was so super. The cost was very good. The Happy Hour was also very good. The steaks were excellent! And the restaurant had a very nice interior. We had great wine, again good prices.. We would go back there in a heartbeat!

I was in town from Atlanta starting a project at Ellsworth AFB in Rapid City and happened along this beautiful restaurant. The outside of the building is spectacular, and the inside décor didn't disappoint one bit! It is very upscale, yet comfortably laid back and not stuffy at all (which is what you'd expect at many places like this in... More

My husband and I tried several items at this restaurant, the walleye finger appetizers, the sirloin and filet mignon steaks, and the kuchen dessert. Everything was tasty and the service was excellent, but the filet was a little tough for the high price that we paid.

I ate at the Dakotah Steak house on three consecutive nights, something I have never done at any restaurant in my life but there were extenuating circumstances. We were staying at the Comfort Suites in Rapid City for 3 nights which happens to share a parking lot with the Dakotah. So it was a 100 yard walk from the hotel... More

Upscale menu. But waitresses wear jeans and so can you. A bit costly, but not outrageous. Wonderful appetizers (I had the bison). Walleye was outstanding. However, the beef fillet, cooked great the first time, but a bit more fat than one expects and not as favorable as some places. Would recommend and would return if in the area.

We ate here for husband's 75th birthday during a long road trip. Great experience from the amazing metal sculpture outside right through to dessert. Best blue cheese dressing ever, mushroom bread pudding YUMMY, and perfect steaks. To our server, Courtney - YOU ROCK!

This dining experience was excellent, except for one problem. The problem is that the owner/s need to hire more help. We heard that the service was an issue, but love steakhouses so went anyway. We waited 20 minutes for a glass of wine. The explanation was that all of the orders came in at once. Whatever. However, the food, the... More
