Reception staff, wait staff were friendly/capable. Salad was good, but contained mostly ice head lettuce, tomato, other usual components. Steak was medium rare as requested, tasty, satisfying. Baked potato was satisfying.

Pretty darn good. I always order my steak well done and most restaurants will char the heck out of it. The steak was flavorful, tender and still very moist. The chimichurri sauce to accompany the steak was amazing. Wonderful selection of sides to go with the meals also. Talullah was our server and she was wonderful.

I took a business associate to dinner at Dakotahs, he had been referred to the restaurant by a local business owner. The Dry aged Ribeye was outstanding! We had Pheasant poppers for an appetizer which where very good. Our waitress Courtney Y. was very friendly and attentive. The atmosphere of the dinning room is warm and inviting. Excellent overall, except... More

It was a nice quiet meal while travelling through South Dakota. Courtney was an excellent, professional server. We had steak dinners, and everything was good for a reasonable price.

This is a great place to get away and enjoy a nice evening. We found the service to be very good and the food was also excellent. The atmosphere is a western motif and done very nicely. If you don't want to eat in the dining room the bar is also a very nice place to go. Each time we... More

We ate here because it was close to our hotel during a cross country trip. The hotel staff recommended it and we were too tired to drive anywhere else. But what a great choice! We had some of the best burgers we've ever eaten. It was a busy place but quiet. Obviously a place for a night out for the... More

The restaurant itself us quite nice. Hostess was quick. Ordered a Stella. My friend ordered a Bud Light. I was very disappointed the Stella was served in a lager glass. That's like putting a hot dog in a hamburger bun. Round two, I ordered a small Bud Light because I was worried they would kill another beer. I got a... More

Thank you for your review. I will look into getting a "Stella" glass for presentation. I don't think it will change the flavor though. Thank you for the compliment on the food and service. More

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.
