No other has it all like this local spot. Service was top notch. Food was way above the top. And when we left the city we said we would drive back to rapid just to eat at this food delight. Relax here and be served.

A great place to eat after a very long day on the road. The hostess and servers were very friendly. The atmosphere was quite nice. The food and drinks were great.

I've eaten 3 dinner meals there so it does bring me back. I think it would be a little too expensive to bring a large family or group, unless you are ok with a $25 entre. The portions are very large, so you could box up half of it for another meal. If you get a "side" of onion rings,... More

Our go to place for great atmosphere and a great meal, the food is always contestant & we have never been disappointed. You can order a great burger or splurge on dry aged steak. If you love onion rings, my husband says these are the best. Has a nice selection of wines and sprits.

My cousin came in for Florida and has dined many places around the world. He had to take pictures of prime rib rack as it was the best he had ever had.

Have been here twice, once with the hubby and once with the family. First time we splurged for Valentine's Day. Ordered a rib eye and a flat iron steak, very good. Second time we ordered burgers and a steak sandwich, delicious and affordable. Will be going back often.

Named after an obscure Indian tribe that nobody's heard of, AND overpriced?! Sweet! We went here for a work dinner. OK. The good: The place is beautiful. I have to admit that it is one of the most aesthetically pleasing restaurants I've ever eaten in. Great big fireplace, hardwood everything, blah blah blah. If George Hearst owned a restaurant in...

The best steak he has ever had! And that is saying something from a beef eating country! I had the Salmon and it was excellent. Portions were generous. The bread was very good. I shared a meal with my husband and the waitress was at ease with that. We also loved the rolling chairs and took a video of all... More

Went to dinner, taking an employee out for birthday. Ordered drinks and appetizers for the four of us. The appetizers came before the drinks. We arrived at 4.30 pm so only one other table. Strange to get hot food before cold drinks. Ordered steaks and mashed potatoes. They put bacon in the potatoes without informing me. Disgusting first bite of... 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.
