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
Happy to find a local place during mega road trip!
My best friend and I were traveling from Florida to California via South Dakota. Everywhere we stopped, we tried to find local places. In Rapid City, we were recommended by our front desk to go to Dakotah. We were not disappointed. Everything we ordered was perfect. The bison rib appetizer, and the ribeye steaks...everything was great and gave us the feel that we were getting a true local experience.
We thoroughly enjoyed our birthday celebration dinner at Dakota Steakhouse. The food met or exceeded expectations. There were six adults plus a toddler, all ordered a different entree, and everyone loved their meal. The atmosphere was relaxed but refined.
Food and Service just so-so
The food was just ok. My sisters steak was really tough. I asked to have my wedge salad chopped and tossed and the waitress told me we don't serve it that way. The bbq sauce is so vinegary that I could not eat it. The rest of the meal was just ok, nothing to boast about.
Very nice experience. Great service and good menu.
Good steaks and great appetizers. Friendly staff and nice ambiance. Would recommend it for a nice night out.
Dakota Steakhouse on the mark.
My sirloin steak was fantastic. There were 6 in our group and everyone had a delicious meal.

Restaurant was nicely adorned, but the atmosphere wasn't very inviting. Food was very good, but nothing really unique. Waitstaff were quite cold & unwelcoming, so that set the tone. Good location, easy to find & right off the hwy.

Was in town for a little work and a little geocaching. Decided to try this restaurant. I had the Charred Romaine Caesar Salad and added salmon. The coffee was amazingly good and the wait person was very attentive. While the salad was really good I was surprised that the romaine was chopped and had no char. I am not complaining, because it was so good. Thank you for the lunch

This is the best steak house in Rapid City. I look forward to my next visit.
Best in Rapid City
We went here to celebrate a special birthday and were seated in a smaller area, away from the main dinning room, so it was like we had our own private space. Each of us had steak, either filet or rib eye and all were excellently prepared. The presentation was beautiful. Our waitress was very attentive. If we were in Rapid City again we would definitely go back.

We happened to stay across the street from Dakotah while visting Mt. Rushmore and since it was my son's birthday, we decided to have dinner at Dakotah. The food was great - My husband had the filet mignon, my daughter and I shared Cowboy Bone-In Rib-eye and my son ordered the Buffalo Rib-eye - all were quite tasty and cooked to perfection.
Great Service! Good Atmosphere! Avg Food!
The burger, and the flank steak were very good. The Prime Rib was pretty rare, even by Prime Rib standards. The Rib-eye by the ounce was average. The wedge salad was far inferior to others in town, especially for the price. You have good food, but not to the level that warrants the price versus other steakhouses in Rapid. The service was very good!
Walleye, tasteless, watery. Dry aged, prime, rib eye; tough, seemed reheated. It was however, expensive. Asparagus, cold, stringy, tough.
My favorite place!
I love this restaurant. Food is always great. Best steaks in town. Great service and atmosphere. Drink menu is great too. St. Patrick's day dinner was very good. Both of us always thoroughly enjoy going here. A fun night always with friends to stop in for one of the yummy burgers.

Pleasant surprise right across from our hotel!
Pretty good food.
I had no problem worth my reservation. The service was good, the food was pretty good. The steak I had was amazing, however the prime my boyfriend had wasn't as good but still tender and juicy. Bq sauce was icky but maybe that was just us. I would definately recommend this to a friend, nice place really.

One of our favorite restaurants to eat at in Rpaid City. Lovely rustic atmosphere, top notch menu, fresh ingredients, homemade food, wonderful bar menu.
Great service and food
Great Valentine day dinner good food and environmental
We took visiting friends to Dakotahs for supper. They had Texas boar as a special and our friend really enjoyed this unique dish. The rest of us had various steaks. I ask for the green pepper rings along with onion rings and the chef was kind enough to make them (they used to be on the menu and we loved them). The soups and salads were excellent, no desert we were to full! The waitress was wonderful.

Great place for holiday gathering
We held our board and staff holiday gathering at Dakotah Steakhouse. Staff was really attentive and everything was really nice. Food was delicious and people really enjoyed the event. Their dining rooms are very nice--our group had just over 30 and it was fantastic. Many stayed afterwards for dinner and enjoyed the night!

Great service meets awesome food. The quirky menu options were filled with delicious morsels that made our taste buds sing. You should definitely try the elk ravioli. Dreamed about it later that night. Save room for dessert though. It made the already great meal perfect.
Dakota Steakhouse is our favorite restaurant in RC
We have had numerous dinners at Dakota Steakhouse and feel it is the best for all around good food. We have had dinner for two, family dinner for 6 and group dinners of over a dozen and the food and service has been unequaled in Rapid City. If you don't like their steaks, burgers, seafood or other items we feel sorry for you. We haven't had a bad experience there in the years that they have been open. The only regret we have is that they aren't open for lunch anymore.

We have been to Dakotah several times always very happy but this time the prime rib was not right dident seem to have any taste and was a little tough. Sevice was great and Walleye fingers were great
Took my family of 5 out for dinner as a little celebration, walleye fingers appetizer was delicious, we enjoyed the filet, prime rib, cheeseburger and grilled cheese and all were excellent. Would highly recommend to anyone wanting beef.

Excellent! Ribeye was perfect and we had a lot of fun experimenting with appetizers; buffalo satay, walleye fingers and pheasant poppers were excellent. Elk ravioli is also fantastic. Ask for extra bourbon whipped cream on the apple crisp. Recommended wine pairings were right on. Great ambiance near the fireplace.
Had a group of 11. Ashley supported the room by herself. She could have used some help but did a very nice job alone. Food was very good. Reviews were positive from all. Worth the trip
Food was great, service was exceptional.
As tourists we weren't sure what what to expect, but what a great restaurant! A little on the pricey side, but well worth it.
we both h ordered from the recommendation of our excellent waitress, Alix. I order my steak well done and it was delicious! Unusually tender. My husband had the petite sirloin, medium rare. Salads were fresh and crisp. Bleu cheese mashed were delicious. The server was the r a son we'd go back again.

Very nice dinner while we were on vacation. Quiet, great food, waitress did not rush us. Will come back next time we are in the area. Food was super Fresh and very flavorful. Delicious steak
We found this restaurant across from our hotel after a long day of travel. It was wonderful! We enjoyed elk ravioli, chicken, & the best filets we've had anywhere (& we're from Chicago so have enjoyed good steaks). Great warm bread, beautiful salads & delicious sides.
On my honeymoon my new bride and I were looking for places to eat that we hadn't tried before when we found Dakotah Steakhouse. We were very pleased upon arrival and that remained for the whole meal. The butter was out of this world and my Sirloin steak was cooked to perfection. I will definitely be going back next time I am in town.
We were at the Marriott and this is across the street. Food was very good, nice inside, attentive waiter. Prices were comparable to the quality of food
Great Food and Romantic Setting
Went to the Dakotah Steakhouse for my birthday. The food was great, but however was disappointed in the service. Considering I purchased one of the most expensive items on the menu we received very little service. Our waitress was absent or extremely busy. Was told rolls would be coming and they never arrived. When meal was delivered still had not received any dinner rolls. Ask for them and still did not get them. Asked again and they were finally brought out after our meal was half eaten. Never asked to refill my drink and waitress did not come to check on our meals that were delivered by other. Bill was presented to me without my $10 discount for my birthday which I had given to the waitress.
The food was excellent, the ambience very nice although a good cleaning of the high lights is in order, the waitress was very friendly and our orders were correct but she appeared to be extremely busy causing delays in our service.
Great meal at the end of the day!

Service? Needs some training here.
Food was good, but service lacking. She decanted our wine (expensive bottle) so she was told to decant it and then was going to immediately pour. We asked her to wait. Waited 30 minutes for our appetizer and finally waitress came by and said fryer station "was slammed" so our order was not ready yet she asked if we wanted our salad and soup first. We agreed and when we were done with them our appetizer finally arrived. Food was good.
