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.

Nice Pub with a good beer selection

We originally went to Tallys across the street for a late lunch based on good reviews BUT their hours were weird and they were about to close when we sat down. I am so glad because right across the street we found Paddys. I always ask what is recommended at a new restaurant and I absolutely hate... read more

Paddy O Neils is one of the best bars in Rapid City. We love the bar and Nichole the bartender is the best. We love seeing her during the Rally when we come to South Dakota

I really wish I could give Paddy O'Neill's a higher rating as I did like the place and it has a good beer selection, very reasonably priced, and the food was pretty good the one time I ate there, but what hurts it is the service. More than once the bartenders would walk right by my empty glass and never... More

I may finally be done with this place! I like the atmosphere and the beer selection but holy cow the service is brutally slow! Takes way to long to get a drink. Sometimes you sit for 20 mins as the bartenders chat and look at their phones. Go down the street to Murphys or Thirsty's.

Stopped in on vacation, looking for a one-off restaurant for lunch in Old Town Rapid City. It's a dark place so we sat by the window in an average comfortability booth. Plenty of drink choices, food, not so much. A/C blew directly on me from the opposite wall, so it was a chilling adventure! Very friendly service! The waitress/barhop was... More

It took over 20 minutes for any of the staff members to even acknowledge that I was even there. In a situation like this, normally I would talk to the manager but I had no desire to stay at this place since there are better options. This place is nothing special but they are located in a good area.

Paddy O'Neill's Irish Pub restaurant on the ground floor of the hotel was nice, and hotel guests get a discount. The Reuben Sandwich was good, didn't get a chance to try their Shepherd's Pie.

We stopped here for lunch while in Rapid City. This bar is attached to the Alex Johnson hotel. It was an off time, so not many folks were present when we visited. The bartender/waitress was very nice and friendly. The food was OK but nothing special. Prices were fair.
