Never had a bad meal here. Burgers are great. Prime rib sandwich is my favorite, served with fresh vegetables or sweet potato fries, along with a great salad bar.

My husband and I were traveling for work and staying at the Hampton Inn. Trip Advisor has this listed, obviously based on reviews, as #1. Very disappointing at best. Salad bar and bread are fantastic. We both ordered the filet - mine medium and my husbands a hair over medium- he had the baked potato and I had the asparagus.... More

We have been to many steak houses and from what the hotel told us we thought we where in for a treat. The decor is very cute but the food was just ok for the amount of money we spent i was expecting a tasty treat but it was bland the mashed potatoes tasted instant and the salad bar looked... More

Lady managers are awful in treating customers less than people. Been going to Dakotas for years even in groups of 15 plus. Basically they treat you better if you look like money. Food and servers are still amazing. Poor rating for maybe someone taking notice to have the management audited.

Surf and Turf, both delicious choices. Especially the scallops. Expect rubbed salty steaks, so if you are not use to it, order a burger or Prime Rib instead of Steak. Their side dishes are delicious.

Large selection of typical brunch items - fresh local salad items, omelet station, carving station for roast beef and ham, lots of wonderful desserts. Conveniently located at the exit off I91.

The place is great with a western atmosphere. they have a salad bar, and the lobster bisque was fantastic. Our server was also very friendly and helpful.

Thanks for the shout out. Just to note, the lobster bisque is not a regular menu item but was probably a special the day you dined with us. Our standard soup offering on the menu every day for lunch and dinner is New England Clam Chowder. Thank you again. More

I go to lunch here with my friends about 6 times year. I love their salad bar . The steak and chicken is delicious and so is the bread. I like the staff. They do not rush us and let us visit and take our time to enjoy our meal and conversations. I have been to the brunch offered and... More

Steak was out of this world. So was the shrimp cocktail. The waitress was friendly and cost was reasonable.

OMGosh. Dakota's is an amazing steak house with one of the best salad bars I've ever experienced. Our waitress was sooo sweet and helpful. The filet mignon was to die for, perfectly cooked to order (medium) and you could practically cut it with a fork. Really nice ambiance, but a little noisy.
