When you order a filet, it was definitely tasty and hand cut, medium rare it should be served as requested. Yes, this is a difficult steak to cook but this is also an expensive steak. My steak was served medium to medium well, not medium...More

This is a date night restaurant that has decent food but the price is way too high for what you get.

Best steak we have ever had. Better quality beef as compared to Chicago and Minneapolis steak houses that we have been to! Excellent service. Unique fry bread. Ask for waitress Talula. She is fun and her service was fantastic.

This is a place for a special occasion and a special meal. We had a Cowboy steak, two fillets, and a sirloin. They were all excellent. Ambience and Decor top notch also. A bit pricey, but if you want a top tasting steak this is...More

Had a nice dinner with family. Four small filets at our table and one burger. Meat was tasty and tender, but all were over cooked. We ordered medium, but no pink to be had. I am guessing it was an off night. Soup and salad...More

Great place for that extra special dinner. In my opinion, this is as "upscale" as you can get in Rapid City. Dark woods and leather, distinctly masculine, good food to go along with the atmosphere and the service is just as good. I would not...More

The ambiance here is really very nice. The steaks were excellent and cooked perfectly. They could stand to pay a little more attention to the side dishes though. I got the blue cheese mashed potatoes and they were very pasty, slightly bland and had about...More

Food was good, but really expensive for what you get. Steak was cooked perfectly, but the sides were nothing special.

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.
