Just had a meal here, really tasty cooked well, service was spot on. But it's worth a visit for watching the servers move, the speed with which they do everything it's like a blur of activity.

They had Guinness on tap, which was expertly poured by the bartender. I highly recommend trying the Murphy's burger with Granny Smith apples, carmelized onions, and brie. Our server, Richard, was phenomenal. We will be... More

We had take out to eat in our hotel room. We had the pulled pork sandwich and Grandmother's Chicken. Both were fantastic. We could see this place from our hotel room. They had 2 outdoor firepits. Looked like a fun place.

After a morning of picture taking in Custer State Park, we headed into Rapid City for lunch. After reading reviews on Trip Advisor we decided on Murphy's Pub. We were not disappointed. Was just what we were looking for. Great open room with great staff that had a good sense of humor and made us feel welcome. Good draft beer... More

My wife and I were in rapid city for two days and we ate both dinners at Murphy's. The food was good and the wait staff was very friendly and helpful. Great customer service! We'd definitely recommend Murphy's.

We thank the mgr and the team for the fine dinning in Rapid City after visiting Mt Rushmore. The rib eye and fried cheese cake complete our family SD experience.
