Dakota Steakhouse is known for their dinners, especially steaks, but on Saturday and Sunday mornings they have a brunch that no one else can beat, it's outstanding!!!

Menu is not huge but the food is decent. Service whenever I have been there is good. Sundays they have a brunch which is very good. This restaurant is right off the highway (I-91).

Recently I visited the Dakota with my daughters volleyball team. Not all of us about 8 girls and 15 parents. We called ahead and when we arrived were seated right away. We explained to the writers that we were separate families and that we would like separate checks. We are a travel team and have done this countless times. We... More

We had our work party there on 12/14/16. The food was excellent, the waitstaff were friendly and attentive but the space was terrible. We have had great past work parties there in a different room but we had the "room" off the bar this time. When booking, the event planner did let me know the location of the room but... More

We met an old friend here for sunday brunch, it was amazing!! They have a made-to-order omelette bar, cooked breakfast items like bacon, sausage, scrambled eggs, potatoes. Assorted choices of bread, rolls, etc. A carving station of roast beef and ham with all the condiments. Savory food like fish, pasta with meatballs and chicken. A waffle bar with amazing toppings...

My friends all went for the salad bar,I didn't go that far.Us carnivores need our meat-although the bacon bits wooda made those veggies palatable . The Bison Chili wooda made Buffalo Bob happy. But I found the Tenderloin Tips kinda tough.

We went to the Saturday brunch. You will need to starve yourself for 2 days in order just to try most of the selections. The salad bar has such a variety that you could just fill up on all the offerings. Add to that the carving stations, the made to order omelets, waffles, pancakes, pastries, eggs, bacon, sausage, breads and... More

We were seated by the fireplace, the dinning area was warm and cozy. We had an excellent waitress; however the kitchen staff couldn't keep up on slow night therefore, the wait for our starter dish was excessive so we ended up getting the appetizers nearly the same time as the entrée. One of the entrees was incorrect and had to... More

Thank you LisaW, sometimes things don't always go as planned! I do believe that our manager stopped by the table to make amends. Thank you for your patience and kind words. More

We enjoy the American Indian ambiance at the Dakota of Rocky Hill. We love the make your own salad at the salad bar and the "bison" bread. We select from the fish and meat entres. My favorite is the grilled trout. The wait staff is always cordial. If you sign up for the mailing list, you can get a $10... More
