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! Both for personal and business, the Oak Room is the perfect space to hold your next lunch.

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.


The Oakroom is working on finalizing the Restaurant Concepts menus. These 100% student written menus are updated regularly based on many factors. Please reach out to the Culinary Instructors at [email protected] for more information.


We thrive on only the freshest ingredients and this menu is subject to change based on availability.

The Oak Room is open on days when school is in session. 

For reservations and availability, please call 605.995.7169 or email Tim Goldammer.
