There was virtually no redeeming quality to this place. Didn't have the drinks we wanted, the food was mediocre and the waiter was...what can I say?...not really a waiter. We hadn't been there in awhile so wanted to try it again...That will be the last...More

We visited Dakotah Steakhouse during a trip to Mount Rushmore. This was a great find in a city I was not sure we found get really good meals. It is a relaxed setting that was not formal at all. The décor is very nice and...More

The only positive about the experience was our waiter named ironically Dakota. We were disappointed with food and atmosphere!

Honestly some of the best meat we've had at a restaurant. My husband ordered prime rib and thought it was one of the best he had ever had. I ordered the smaller portion of the top sirloin and it was cooked to perfection. Service was...More

Went to Dakota's after a day of riding..more upscale than not but very comfortable. Not a budget restaurant. The food was amazing and the atmosphere was equally wonderful. The wait staff was on top of everything. I made reservations on line and that went very...More

Enjoyed the Cowboy Rib-Eye (bone-in), and their Caesar Salad. The steak was excellent, and I had it with the blue cheese mashed potatoes (could have been better). Definitely not a place for those on a budget. My chief concern is their rather limited wine list,...More

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.
