Came in with high expectations given the positive reviews. The ambiance of the place was awesome and by far the best thing about this place. Its built inside an old auto body shop and the inside is very well done. Plenty of TVs for watching the game. The service was just OK. Friendly enough, but not engaging and did not... More

This restaurant was really fun to visit and the shepherds pie was really excellent. Good for kids and dealt with a growing group of adults, too

Ate here 2x last year and stopped by again this summer on our way through town. The food is great and we love the openness of the bar and restaurant. Outside we love to play giant Jenga. Staff is always friendly.

I ate lunch at Murphy's with a large party, the food was delicious and the staff was very accommodating. The outdoor area is a lovely place to enjoy drinks with friends.

I hear it is a nice place to hangout, but we were there for food. I had duck salad - the dressing was too sweet and it was not a fulfilling meal. The service was too nonchalant (a waiter was trying to make fun of me in response to a question I asked about an item on the menu). It... More

Just got back from a 5 day trip trip to Rapid City. Went to Murphy's when we arrived, based on the reviews here. Were highly impressed with the how friendly the staff was and more importantly the quality of the food. There is both indoor & outdoor seating. Come day 2 we looked at the menu's of other restaurants and... More

We came for the food and I would give it a B+. It looks like a great place to have a drink and visit with friends. Our waiter was great and tried to please us in every way.

OK, I probably wouldn't pick this place for the food. It was OK, pretty average. As far as a watering hole, I think the barkeep was above average and the service in general was pleasant. They have a ton of beer on tap, so if beer is your thing check this spot out.

While in Rapid City on vacation, we were looking for a good meal. With the help of Trip Advisor, we found this place & it was worth the trip! We ate indoors on the other side of the bar(which was surrounded by tv's). We started with some fancy fried pickles that were quite tasty. For dinner, my friend had the... More

It has been about 4 years since I had been here. I really like all the changes. The customer service is excellent, the atmosphere is very clean and comfortable and the food is awesome. I will be recommending this place to all my friends.
