When it comes to restaurants the state of South Dakota has a wide variety of great ones to choose from. And while many are not only delicious but also affordable, a trip to others might just cost you an arm and a leg.

The Mount Rushmore State has more fine dining than you might think, but where is the most expensive restaurant in the entire state? The answer may surprise you, and the prices on the menu will surely take a bite out of your kid's college fund.

You might be guessing that the state's most expensive place to dine is in Sioux Falls, or maybe even Rapid City, but according to the Daily Meal, it's nowhere near either of South Dakota's two biggest metros. In fact, it's closer to the middle of the state.

So, where do the high rollers in South Dakota go for a bite to eat? Well, the Daily Meal says it's at The Cattleman's Club Steakhouse in the state capital of Pierre. However, after some research, there are a few restaurants that are pricer.

The Cattleman's Steakhouse specializes in (you guessed it) steak and a wide variety of other classic American cuisines. It was founded in 1986 and quickly became one of the go-to destinations for fine dining in the state capital.

Prime Rib ranges anywhere between $18.99 and $49.99. Some of its signature steaks are around $34.99. Is that pricey? Sure, but compared to some of the other states on this list (I'm looking at you New York, and California), it's pretty darn reasonable.

Two other restaurants have more expensive menus, including one in Sioux Falls.

At Morrie's Steakhouse, a Morgan Ranch Wagyu Tomahawk Ribeye alone will cost you $95.

La Minestra in Pierre is also in contention for the most expensive restaurant in the Mount Rushmore State.
