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

We came here for my husband's birthday with my son and his wife. The large buffalo rib appetizer was very good and beautifully presented. The wedge salad was good but a bit skimpy on the blue cheese dressing and did not come with bacon. The rolls they served were too chewy but the bourbon butter was very good. My husband had prime rib which was very large and perfectly rare as ordered, with a nice horseradish sauce and au jus on the side. It came with a bowl of clam chowder and a choice of sides. He had blue cheese mashed potatoes that were very nice. I had a hangar steak, it was sliced, very tender and perfectly cooked. The mushroom bread pudding was good but a bit dry. My son and his wife each had Walleye which they liked. The fried mac and cheese side was excellent. We shared the kuchen for dessert and the chef wrote a beautiful "Happy Birthday" in chocolate on the plate. The kuchen was really delicious with a nice berry and whip cream topping and ice cream on the side. The service was excellent and the ambiance was very nice for a special occasion.

We were staying at the Comfort Suites just across the car park and found it very convenient to walk to. We dined at the Dakotah two nights. The cosy fireplace was very welcoming on a chilly evening and we enjoyed the friendly ambience. The menu was varied and we thought the food & service were very good.
I would definitely recommend this restaurant.

Incredible experience. The food was fantastic and the service was even better. Steak ordered Medium, was cooked exactly medium. Mushrooms and asparagus were cooked perfectly as well. The only thing I think they could better, is open a location in Dallas, TX where I live.

Disappointed in wait staff. One of us had a special drink request and asked the wait staff to check with the bartender. Instead of doing that she told us that the drink couldn't be made, that it would "lose it's integrity". We should have insisted. The other thing was that the same person who had the drink request was short her fork. Instead of immediately bringing her a new napkin setting, the waitress practically argued with her about not having a fork. Then she brought one and just plunked it down in front of her. My friend was black, by the way. Did that have anything to do with the waitress' rudeness?

Excellent food. Have always eaten in the bar area which is nice. Excellent cut of meet and Mushroom Bread Pudding is excellent accompaniment. Granted not inexpensive, but many menu items are not in the $49 high-end steak category and still well prepared.

Our server just couldn't stay focused. Drinks were slow to come to the table. He had to be reminded to bring the drinks. One person was served the wrong soup. Our table did not receive a bread basket. We needed to ask for this. When it was time for the second round of drinks, some came to the table, some did not.

For our son's birthday, we wanted to take him for prime rib, which we had ordered
a few months ago.
Our meals came promptly, but every cut had a lot of grizzle and triming to be done.
We were disappointed!!
Our serve was terrific!

We went on-line to get reservation because Sturgis crowd was in town. We arrived early and decided we would just have a drink at the bar until our table was ready. Well we stayed at the bar because the Bartender was fabulous and really enjoyed just relaxing at the bar. We ordered everything we wanted - all was delicious! We asked for our reservation to be changed because we loved sitting at the bar. This was our first time to Dakota Steakhouse. Everything was wonderful, relaxing, fun and delicious ~ thanks for a great experience.

We chose this restaurant primarily due to the fact that it was walking distance from out hotel. We both had appetizers and then burgers. Wife had regular hamburger and I Hamas the buffalo burger. Large helpings for sure and all cooked as requested. The onion ring appetizer we got would of fed 4 people.
We would return if back in the area.

Young server, seemed inexperienced, but he doesn't control the kitchen. They were "just out" of 2 of the 3 entrees we ordered, but I heard other tables order them successfully later.
A filet mignon, ordered medium rare was undercooked, tough and full of gristle, not the "slice with a fork" cut one expects for filet. The restaurant was overpriced and the quality of food below an Outback. Here in Steak Country, customers deserve better.

Our meal was somewhat leisurely paced. Everything arrived at the right temperature (hot food was hot, cold food was cold). Although I didn't order a steak, I loved my meal and was happy with every bite. We splurged on dessert, and that put us over the budget a bit. It was worth it.
I received excellent service. The Buffal ...
I received excellent service. The Buffalo skewers were really good. My steak was over cooked but my server took it back and had it re done for me. I had two glasses of wine but I should have asked to sample them first because I probably wouldn't have selected either of them if I'd tried them first. I had the Cabernet Sauvignon and the Pinot Noir. If I'd tried them first I probably would have settled on a Merlot. Overall it was a good experience and I'd probably visit again if I was in the area.

Made reservations but not too busy at 7pm for a Friday night. Staff was friendly and helpful, but being not too busy, took a while to get service promptly and had to wait some time to get the check.
Dinner entre seemed salty.
Made reservations for wife's 40th birthday. Even noted it on the reservation hoping for a special touch or something special as an option for her. Not even a happy birthday by anyone. Based on prices and image of the higher class restaurant in western SD, you think it would WOW a person.

Atmosphere was nice. We came about 8:30 so there weren't many customers. Food was good but pretty expensive for what it was. The waitress only came by a couple of times. We would have appreciated more attention. Also she wasn't very friendly or talkative.

The service was outstanding. Enjoyed the "house" cabernet and the nice wine glasses.
We usually love eating here but something was off this time. The buffalo bone appetizer was dry, difficult to cut , and was a smaller serving than we've had before -- it's usually fall-off-the-bone tender and juicy. Needless to say, we were disappointed, especially since we had out-of-town friends with us.
We will give them another try, though, as this is the only time out of many that we've been disappointed with the food.
NEVER disappointed in the service staff.
