The Oak Room

The Oak Room is known throughout South Dakota as a fine dining opportunity not to be missed! It is an integral part of the Culinary Academy at Mitchell Technical College. Located in the Mitchell Tech Campus Center at 1800 East Spruce Street, this elegant dining room will help you create a memorable meal experience!

The Oak Room has been in operation since 1969 and has been directed by five Culinary Arts Department Heads: Ernst Wirt, John Weber, Randy Doescher, Jim Wagner and current department head Josh Kranz. Approximately 10 to 20 students work on the Oak Room staff each year serving approximately 2,000 meals. Students rotate responsibilities and serve as chef, waiter, bus person, etc. each day. Graduates of the Culinary Academy work in many occupational fields including head chefs, sous chefs, kitchen managers, food service managers, restaurant managers, etc.

Due to COVID-19 concerns, the Oak Room is closed until further notice. When Mitchell Tech determines that the restaurant can be safely opened, we will notify local media and will post it on our website and social media sites.  Until then, we are grateful for your patience and understanding and hope that we will be serving you soon!
