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

Sunday morning good-bye after family wedding had 16 of us amazed at the choice of menu. The apple glazed bacon was great, omelet created to order terrific, not to mention the waffles, home-fries, etc. The server assigned to wait on us was helpful, water glasses and coffee cups quickly refilled.

Staff was exceptionally nice, in fact I'd say the nicest staff I've ever dealt with honestly. They were very sweet and helpful! Food was good, not fantastic, not amazing, just good. A nice selection of meats, cheese, breakfast, desserts, etc. There was definitely no shortage of selection that is for sure. My only complaint is the price, it was o..k... More

We went for the Sunday Brunch for my husbands birthday with our 5 year old and 10 month old. There were a few other families there celebrating birthdays too. The waiting staff was amazing! Very friendly but not in the overly fake way. The Brunch was delicious. Such a wide variety of stations; made to order omelettes, carving station, baked... More

Good salad bar, good baked chicken, shrimp was tough. All personnel were very friendly. Since we are on the east coast I was looking for some good seafood, but this wasn't the place to get it. If you are a steak eater, looks like the had a good assortment of steaks to pick from.

Thank Rstokes56
Terri M, Owner at Dakota of Rocky Hill, responded to this review

Rstokes56, we do have a fairly extensive selection of seafood and an incomparable salad bar but as you point out, our focus is as a steakhouse. As for the tough shrimp, that is inexcusable and should have been replaced. We have a 100% guest satisfaction policy in place. If something is not to your liking, please let us know! More
