Celebrated our grandparents 60th anniversary here. We were a fairly large group of 40 people and I have to say that the staff handled it amazingly. The food was out of this world..

The service was outstanding. This is a top notch restaurant. Bill was $200 for the 2 of us which included drinks. If you want a great meal with awesome service,... More

A fantastic fall evening, enjoying a patio! The food was well prepared and portions were perfect! It would be easy to just loose track of time in this place. An unrushed dinner, fantastic serive and beautiful place to enjoy!

On our third night of conference we went to Dakota's. They have a very large wine selection. Large portions. I had the 10oz dry aged ribeye which was excellent.

I cannot say enough great things about this fine restaurant. From the manager, host, wait staff, chefs, all included are top notch. My son recently chose Dakota’s to get engaged at. With the possibility of inclement weather and the need to set up something special, they were very accommodating to being very flexible as to where the couple would be... More

Had dinner there and the food was very good and service overall excellent. Drinks from the bar were very slow. They where made well but it was slow. The location is odd in that is underground but the decor is very nice.

We believe the best steaks come from the best cut and quality. That's why we get all of our beef fresh from renowned beef purveyors, Allen Brothers. Each cut is corn and grain fed USDA Prime steak that our chef handpicks. Each steak is aged for a minimum of 28 days for a perfectly tender, juicy bite every time. It is our goal to give you a great meal every time you join us for lunch or dinner. We update our menu twice a year so each time you dine with us you experience fresh flavors that go with every season.
