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.

“Not up to expectations”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013

I was looking for a great steak. So I thought I was going to one of the area's better steak houses. They did not live up to the hype.Wanted the prime rib special but they were out at 8pm, so I went the 14oz ribeye. My steak arrived over cooked and very tasteless. Took for ever for the waitress to return and even longer to receive a properly cook steak. Second steak was just as tasteless as the first. Only eat half of it, spending more time enjoying the girlfriends lamb. I have had better steaks in RC for half the price. A return visit is not in the future.

“Overpriced”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2013

We went for our anniversary when it first opened. The building and decor was amazing, great atmosphere. However our bill was over $100 for 2 basic meals that didn't even come with a salad. Very overpriced for food that was average.

“Everything was top notch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2013

We ate here for our anniversary in September 2012. We really enjoyed it. We had a bottle of there house wine-great. The service was excellent. The food was very tasty. The atmosphere was very nice. If you want a good steak or seafood this is the place. You wont be disappointed. It is a little expensive but a great place for a special occasion.

“LOVED this steakhouse!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

If you're looking for excellent food, superb service and support a locally owned restaurant, then check out the Dakota Steakhouse! We ate at the restaurant to celebrate a special occasion (just my husband and I) and it was beyond special. We were seated in an elegant booth across from the massive, cozy fireplace and enjoyed the excellent food.
The bison option is fantastic here. I also love that the restaurant offers quartinos of wine - perfect for those winos like me who want more than just a glass but not dining with enough other wine drinkers to justify a bottle!
The price is worth the visit to the Dakotah Steakhouse - if you're going to eat out, make it worth it and enjoy real food, not run-of-the-mill chain food you can find anywhere.

“They Know How to Cook Steaks”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

We like this place for its décor as well as the food. We came here for dinner and ordered two kinds of steaks, beef wellington and prime rib. They both were perfectly cooked and delicious. You can tell that they use quality meat here. Most of the sides we had were also tasty. The side order grits here is not what you would find in most of the southern style cooking, but it is not bad.
