After having been on the road for a couple of days, we treated ourselves to dinner at the Dakotah Steakhouse. It was delicious. We each had the large filet mignon, and it was cooked to perfection. It was a little on the higher end price-wise,...More

Great place to eat. Atmosphere was excellent. Staff was great. Food was good. Was travelling through the area. Found this gem on tripadvisor and hit gold. Gets busy, may need a reservation but nice bar area to hang out in.

We selected this restaurant because it was within walking distance of our hotel. When we were arrived, one of the hostesses said only tables in the bar were available. I noticed there were many tables open in the dining room both then and when we...More

After a day visiting Mt. Rushmore, Custer State Park, and Crazy Horse Memorial, we sat down to juicy steaks, moderate priced bottle of red wine in a relaxing atmosphere. Our server did not rush our meal. This was a very pleasant dining experience.

We had dinner here many times in years past, normally good. Our steaks were tough. The food wasn’t that great. Seems it is going down. Hostess wasn’t real friendly.

It is located in the same parking lot as Comfort Suites, so I was hesitant! Only open for dinner. I had a wonderful steak, with a great wine selection! I went back two more times!

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.
