The service was extremely slow for not being very busy. Tables weren't getting cleaned off, we were 5 people and had to wait about 15 mins at 3 on a Sunday afternoon. I think they were short staffed. Food was good but not spectacular. Personnel...More

Had dinner there on a busy Sunday night. Waitstaff attentive and pleasant. Sat in a booth next to window. Window area didn't appear to have been cleaned for a long time. Food mediocre.

Ordered a 10 oz ranchers sirloin steak, half of steak was full of gristle. 1/2 chicken was very dry and burnt. French fries were cold and rubbery. No seasoning on chicken or fries. No rolls.

They have changed their menu some. We ordered onion rings and there might of been 10 all together. They used to have onion blossom and at least you got your moneys worth. The steaks were good, as was the chicken dinner I had.

Similar to other chain steakhouse restaurants such as Texas Roadhouse or Logans with salads and various menu options.

The food at Dakota's is good--not particularly outstanding--but quite good. They're accommodating for those with gluten intolerance, but be warned that the whole experience will take a while. I wouldn't suggest eating here in a hurry.

Frequent waverly on business often unfortunately the only restaurant near hotel has a horrible bartender. She can't pour a draft beer without 4" of head, you have to beg for a menu and additional poorly poured beers. She dips snuff and spits in trash can...More

I have been eating at the waverly Dakotas a couple times a week for several months now. I don't have much bad thoughts on their food ( just average), however I can't get over the train wreck of a bartender they have running the bar....More

We visited Dakota's on a road trip. I saw their Goose Island Iced Tea and the price was lower than most places, so I tried it. WOW! It's the best one I've had in years. The food was also great, our server Tia was right...More
