About Dakotah Steakhouse
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.

Dakotah Steakhouse Ratings and Reviews
Overall great dining experience. South Dakota was the 50th state I've visited and wanted to taste SD cuisine "chisilic". It was spicy but taste great. The sauce gave it an extra kick. I was disappointed with the prime rib sandwich. The meat was bland and over cooked. The sweet potatoe fries were the best I ever had! Could have a little less salt though. Very pleased with the food presentation and the wonderful service.
Food was amazing. The prices could definitely use some work...i added shrimp to a steak and the small shrimp that arrived was not worth the $10 upcharge, burnt taste. The steak on the other hand, i would have paid double. It was a common flat iron steak but at medium....soft and almost buttery. Thee buffalo skewers are the best. Go there at least once just to say you did. I would recommend this place to everyone i meet.
the food here is amazing we drive 150 miles for the steak its not the cheapest but we pay for quality and our waitress was fun and did an awsome job i think they called her lou i hope she is our waitress every time we go. I will continue to eat here as long as it is open and the steaks are as good
Having visited Dakotah Steakhouse several times over the past 2+ years, have always found the staff to be very friendly, helpful and courteous. On every visit the food has been truly excellent and more than enough to satisfy even the hardest of appetites. This restaurant has my very highest recommendation.
The food was excellent, however. a little too pricy. The glass of wine was a very short fill. I ask for a slice of birthday cake and the waiter left and came back and read me your flyer that I already receive in the mail . I understood that. but I still desired a slice of cake if available. Of course I was willing to pay for it. The waiter has too defensive and not very accommodating. Sorry. but the atmosphere was good.
The only positive was The food was prepared well and tasted good. The waitress was nice.
The prices are very high for what you get however.
I made the reservation and stated in writing we were celebrating my husbands birthday. I Left my phone number in case of any questions.
I've done this many times before in other restaurants with positive results.
When we arrived no one ever acknowledged that it was his birthday.
The restaurant was almost empty but we were seated in the back with a view of the cars going by on the highway.
Then they seated a loud family right next to us. We listened to their conversation and watched traffic during dinner.
By dessert, I went to remind them to put a candle on his dessert. I was told they have no candles and acted like I was asking for something that they had never heard of. It was so rude.
Why not ask the chef to write happy birthday on his dessert plate at least. NOTHING was ever done. NOTHING.
Since I did leave my phone number when I made the reservation, They should have called me to say that they do NOTHING for birthdays and I would have brought my own darn candle or gone elsewhere.
In a fine establishment the least they should do is acknowledge a birthday or seat us in a beautiful part of the restaurant, Or keep the LOUD family away from us as this was a SPECIAL OCCASION!
This occasion was TOTALLY IGNORED.
This LACK OF SERVICE ruined it for us. It didn't even feel like it was a birthday dinner in any way shape or form.
I've never had this happen in any fine dining establishment. For this reason I do not recommend it for any special occasion.
In fact, I don't recommend this restaurant for anything but an EXPENSIVE meal. And good luck with where you are seated.
We will never go back.
Absolutely enjoyed every aspect of our meal. The Buffalo skewers are definitely a must and the option to choose my own steak size really hit home for me. Excellent service and suggestions from our waiter, Skylar, and a great atmosphere. Although pricy, it was definitely worth it and we plan to spend many special occasions here.
We booked this restaurant as it was recommended, but the Hostess was right out rude and unfriendly, she never greeted us and as I explained we had a reservation she still gave us the silent treatment, a young lady took us to our table and was friendly, welcoming us. We were then served by Kayla and she did a great job. When leaving the restaurant the hostess was at the front desk and my husband greeted her, again she did not care to respond.
I asked for a quiet, romantic corner to celebrate my husband's birthday. They put us in the most perfect place next to the Fireplace. Food and service was amazing (as always) as was the wine. The ambiance made the evening special! Thank you staff, you're awesome!!
Waitress forgot to put in our appetizer order.
Steaks were delivered with degree of doneness mixed up between us. When finally redone correctly, the food was excellent.
With our appetizers forgotten and food done incorrectly, I was quite surprised that they didn't offer any compensation for the disaster that was our dining experience. All that was offered was a smile and a shrug.
The food was okay but not worth the price. I highly recommend the buffalo skewers. But amount of steak you get for the price you pay is insane. For 28 dollars I got "8 ounces" of steak and a potato. The "8 ounces" of steak was more like two tiny slivers of steak and it was mediocre at best.
We dine here several times each year for special occasions as well as anytime we have company and want to take them for a nice evening out. It's priced a little higher than most places in town but always a satisfying night. The wait staff is typically very good however this night the gal was pretty new and not quite as accommodating as our usual waitress. Regardless, you will not find a better dinner or atmosphere anywhere in Rapid City than at Dakotah Steakhouse.
It is winter season, I pulled up in the handicapped parking spot since I require a walker, the space itself seemed to be cleared of snow but the ramp that leads to the sidewalk from the space was full of snow and ice. I am glad that I do not require a wheelchair since the chunks of snow at the edge of the sidewalk on the ramp were rather large and formidable. I also ended up taking my meal to go and finished it at home not only because of noisy children in the adjacent section and a baby crying but with the hardwood floors there is not much for heating in the restaurant. It has an open warehouse type ceiling and an enclosed fireplace that seems more for looks than warmth. My legs got too cold for my stay to be enjoyable enough to stay and finish my meal. I have been there many times and this was not the best visit.
