Experience the comfort of a neighborhood pub and a sip of smooth Irish whiskey or fine foreign beer at Paddy O'Neill's. From our copper topped bar, rich dark wood furnishings, live entertainment, video lottery, and our member's only engraved pewter mugs, Paddy's is the perfect place to enjoy a pint. 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. Paddy O'Neill's is a purveyor of upscale beers and whiskeys with a relaxed Old World feel.

great service

The beer was cold and the food was hot. We stopped here after Mt. Rushmore and before Devils Tower. The bartender was hospitable.

This used to be my favorite neighborhood bar. Been coming here after work for a brew since I could drink (9 years). I've seen this place go through a lot of changes, some good, some downright asinine. If you're here looking for good drink deals and the best bartenders in town this is the place to come. HOWEVER, I'm reluctant... More

Located in the lobby of the Alex Johnson hotel, this bar with food is very convenient particularly for your first night if you do not know the area.

We like the happy hour drinks and the beer selection is pretty good. Cool bartenders, waitresses, very lively night life. A fun place to be and real convenient for the Alex Johnson hotel.

Cool little spot to enjoy a game on TV, a drink and good food! Ordered the hand breaded chicken strips with fries for my son and I to share and they were delicious! My fiance had a burger and fries with a beer off tap and he left a happy man! Family friendly restaurant but no high chairs or booster... More

It's a pretty average bar. They've had good live music every time I've visited. The food is about average, but, under no circumstances would I recommend the chicken tenders.

This pub is located in the historic Alex Johnson hotel in downtown Rapid for a bar located in the hotel it's not as overpriced as you would think. it's a fun little place to meet friends listen to a little bit of music but still be able to talk with your friends. Friendly staff.
