Description: Experience the comfort of a neighborhood pub and a sip of smooth Irish whiskey or fine foreign beer at Paddy O'Neill's.

Outdoor seating is available in the summer, giving patrons a chance to sip one of our beverages while keeping an eye on downtown Rapid City.

I have eaten here more times than I can count and have never had a bad meal. They have everything from Hand-cut Chicken Strips to Salads served with Salmon, and it is all very reasonably priced. They also have a great selection of libations, with a good tap beer selection including a number of local beers. And if you're in... More

We had lunch in the bar one day. Service was slow and the food choices seemed expensive to me and somewhat limited. It is convenient being inside the Alex Johnson. Not unfriendly, just average...

This pub is part of the Hotel Alex Johnson and is located in downtown Rapid City. When I say this is one of the best meals we've ever had in a restaurant, I mean in a Pub. My wife had a club sandwich that she said was the best she had ever had, and I had chicken tenders which definitely... More

Though we arrived in town after their kitchen closed, this was worth it anyway. Happy hour lasted late into the night apparently cuz we sure had a good time! Not overly pricey and lots of fresh popcorn. Friendly staff, authentic huge bar and architecture plus the huge display of tankards used by all the "regulars". We'd do that........if we went... More

We spend this summer in Rapid and we went to Paddy's all the time. They made many wonderful meals there for us. I love to people watch there on the patio and the beer selection will not disappoint anyone. Nicole and Katie (bartenders) are really great! Kind and beautiful people. Highly recommend this place. Gluten free menu was impressive.

The bartenders are friendly, prices are fair and the atmosphere is nice. I understand the food is good, although we didn't order any.

We were recently in Rapid City and stayed at The Hotel alex Johnson. At first we went upstairs to the Vertex, which was heavily recommended by the staff upon check-in. We weren't greeted at the Vertex and were not impressed. Being hungry and wanting to catch the hockey game, we went downstairs to Paddy O'Neill's. What a difference! We were... More
