Good drinks

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.

Just wanted to have dinner and a few drinks at my hotel bar/restaurant. The bartenders (male and female) seemed completely indifferent. I was sitting at the bar and wanted to have the fish and chips but was never offered a food menu...and I was there for an hour. I had two beers and went to the Independent Ale House where... More

If you're just wanting to hang out, get some grub ,watch some TV, and have an adult beverage it's all there. One of the most comfortable hotel bars I've been to. Those South Dakota folks seem to have a knack for making visitors feel welcome.

The best bar downtown, especially after dinner time when the rest of the area seems to turn in. Surprising since it's a "hotel bar", but this seems to be a favorite with the locals, which is nice if you are in town for a while and don't want to sit in your room (I was out here working for a...

very friendly staff and fun little hidden treasure. Have plenty of beers to choose from and always fun place to be at. Just wish they would get Murphy's Irish Stout on tap :)

Awesome to know that you consider us a "fun little hidden treasure" and had a great time with our friendly staff. I wish we could get the Murphy's Irish Stout on tap for you but unfortunately it is not distributed to our area, with craft beer taking over there is a chance that we will be able to get it... More

Paddy's is a quiet haven after a hard day traveling or working. The staff is friendly and eager to know and serve you. I always feel that I can finally relax after a tough day and enjoy a cool refreshment and very good food. If you are not hungry there is always fresh-popped popcorn, and the folks serving you are...

Very disappointing to hear that you waited for 30 minutes and were not taken care of, I will look into this further and make sure that the staff is aware of this negative experience you had to prevent it from ever happening again.
