Loved the decor-especially the room to the right with a mural. But good was only so so & not worth the $$$.

Were visiting with family for a wedding. Started with a reservation for 10, 6 adults and 4 kids. As others started showing up at the hotel we directed them to Dakota and expanded from 10 to 14 & eventually to 16 (10 adults and 6 kids). Kimberly could not have been more accommodating, even though it was a Saturday evening.... More

Visited with the family and everyone enjoyed their meals. The kids meals were excellent, my daughter loves the bison beer (root beer) which is served in bottle. My husband got a steak and they asked him to cut into it to ensure the cook was right. It wasn't; it was over done. So they took it back and did it... More

Nice dining with fireplaces and rustic western decor. Friendly staff and a clean inviting dining room. I loved the gargonzola steak tips with garlic mashed potatoes.

The service was excellent and the food very good. We eat there every time we are in Rocky Hill. It is right next door to the hotel that we stay at.

At the bar for dinner after 7. Bartender a little loud all night. Ordered steak dinners and took a log time. Not enough customers to justify that. Bartender couldn't remember what we ordered, didn't write it down so we had to repeat it. Did same with next couple. Received bread basket which was good to hold us over, thankfully. Steak... More

Marcia, thank you for taking the time to share your experience. I wish you had said something at the time, so we could easily have made amends. As is evident from​ our other reviews, this kind of service is atypical for our restaurant. Please give Joy a call at the restaurant so that we may rectify. Best regards, Terri More

This is the best brunch (Saturday and Sunday) without question. $24- omelettes, smoked fish , prime rib etc and then excellent desserts. Definitely make a reservation.

Chosen completely at random and is now on the "map" for future stops. Well appointed with different dining areas and a full bar give you lots of choices. There was not a disappointed person in our party of four. Bacon wrapped scallops, clam chowder, bison burger and mesquite grilled chicken all fine perfectly. Give it a try.

Came highly recommend. Left highly disappointed. Service was poor. Had to keep asking for stuff. For example in line waiting for food, there were no dishes. When they came out finally it was a small pile with a line of people waiting. There are 2 seating for brunch so with everyone starting at the same time they can't handle the... More

Dear MrsSO613, I'm sorry to hear of your experience. As you can tell by our other reviews and our 13 years running as "Best of Hartford", it is not the norm. If you would be so kind as to call the restaurant and ask for Joy, we'd be more than happy to make amends. Best regards More
