Upon arrival we waited a few minutes to be greeted. Hostess apologized that we had to wait but I wondered why one of the 3 bartenders chatting away couldn't of made eye contact with us and told us someone would be right with us and helped out the hostess. Restaurants are about teamwork. Our entrees were perfectly cooked but would... More

Don't come looking for your typical Irish fare. The atmosphere is nicely done & the food was great. Worth the visit. A tad pricey, but not bad.

Really nice place with a variety of micro brews and great menu selection. Service and fellow customers were friendly and made for a pleasant experience. Hip, modern but not pretentious. I wish there were more places around the country like this.

Murphy's Pub is my favorite place to go when we are in South Dakota. The bartenders are very friendly, the food is great. Love the outside bar too.

My wife and I had an excellent Saturday evening on the patio on a warm night after visiting the surrounding Black Hills area. I had the buffalo meatloaf, which was tender, juicy, and absolutely fabulous. The beer and wine selections were vast and varied. Our server was friendly, efficient, and knowledgeable. The restrooms were clean and well maintained. We had... More

We really enjoyed our lunch stop here. The bartender was friendly and informative, the beer selection was awesome (and deelish!) and the twist on the fried pickles was amazing! Yum. We will go again if we are ever in the area again.

This cool restaurant is a great lunch stop in downtown Rapid City. It is quite large and the tables and booths are spaced in a way that makes it easy to carry on a conversation. The menu options are extensive and varied. The service was good and the food was tasty. The list of wine and beer is lengthy and... More

Atmosphere, service and meal were on point! Had the salmon, grilled to perfection, moist and tasty. Service was impeccable. Definitely a place to stop while visiting.
