I wanted to like the restaurant. The service was friendly and polite, but unable to prepare a whiskey sour for my wife. The homemade salad dressing (thousand island) was ketchup and mayo stirred together. The baked potato was served with. Table side flourish where the waiter cut it open through the foil leaving me with the job of picking aluminum... More

Having dined at this family-run restaurant many times over 30+ years of visits to Yankton, I can say that the facility has not changed in all that time, and it looks a bit dated inside. Likewise, the staff has changed very little in that same time, and they too are a bit tired. Even so, the staff can be very... More

Over priced, poor service, and the term mediocre is a compliment. This restaurant may have had a good reputation, we don't know! It certainly one of the most disappointing restaurant experience we have had in a long time especially considering the charges. A friend of ours asked why the restaurant was getting so many bad reviews? Our friend si he... More

Some things never change - Black Steer has a reputation for being slow and having rude staff. This, over DECADES! One guy I worked with said that's how it was 30 years ago, the last time I ate there was 10 years ago, and then again last week, and it's still the same. I do not mind the slowness, even... More

We had driven past the sign for this restaurant many, many times and always said we had to try it sometime. Finally last Friday the time was right as our favorite local steakhouse was closed unexpectedly. We walked in to a nearly empty place at 7:30 on a Friday night. Three other couples were there. Bad sign - we should... More

Nice folks, service was in need of a motorized chair. Bartender was thinking about how to mix screwdriver, maybe with her years and years of experience she just plain forgot. Age does that we find out, steaks wow $$$#$$ cuts not so wow. Very very different, being close to a stock yard I expected different, I was wrong. Most things... More

Black Steer is know for taking their time and making you have a dinning experience. Plan at least an hour or more to eat. Great salad and dressing (all made in-house - try the creamy garlic - works great on baked potato also). I had the BBQ ribs - a bit over sauced and a bit too much fat for... More
