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
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.
We have frequented this steakhouse on three occasions during our visits to Rapid Ciry where our oldest son attends SDSMT. We eat as a family if our other kids are able to travel or with our son and available roommates as a great during their cafeteria school year. The food is always fabulous and the atmosphere is cozy and comfortable. I would recommend for date night, business meal, or any other special occasion. Not the kind of place I would expect to hear/see small children. Price is fair but not inexpensive and makes for a memorable evening out.
The food was great, as expected. The service was horrible! Not what was expected. From the time we sat down and placed our drink orders, it took 22 minutes just to get our drinks. From the time we sat down to the time we actually received our meals was well over an hour! Don't go if you're hungry and expect to be eating right away. It won't happen.
This is the third time we have eaten here and each time they have had the same problem. The service is slow and unprofessional. The food was good each time but the service is so bad that we have decided to never return. We have talked to management about their issue but we see no end to the problem. It stems from poor management to begin with and they see themselves as good at what they do but they SUCK! Find another place to eat.
