We were looking for 'comfort food' after a long day on a tour bus. We were given a table in the pub's outside patio. Our server, Adam, was great. He helped with our selection and provided wonderful service. The food was first class and the potions generous. All in all a delightful experience.

Food was fine, beer was good. I was hoping for more of a selection of foods but maybe had too high of expectations for a Pub. Atmosphere was cool and service was average. Would try something else as a tourist passing through had I had another chance, as there seemed to be better options. Not a bad experience, just not... More

Food is pretty good here, it never really disappoints. They have an excellent outdoor seating area for the summer complete with outside bar and fire! Check out the basement if you feel like spending a couple extra bucks and not being disappointed.

This is a great place to go and have a meal with friends or family. The food choices are awesome and not your every day choices, though they do make some basics.

This is one of the oldest and revered establishments in Rapid City. They hire good staff and the drinks and food are never disappointing. If you want haute cuisine, go elsewhere. If you want the best fish and chips in town with great beer or mixed drinks, then this is your place. Have yet to have a bad experience and... More

Now that was an original and awesome review. Your two choices for eating in Rapid City are excellent. The Colonial House has breakfast and baking cornered and they are great at filling tummies. We try to be fun and real. Thank you for the feedback! More

I had the grilled cheese, and my boyfriend had a burger. Both were good. Our waiter, James, was friendly and helpful. The best part of our visit was the raspberry cheesecake martini. It was one of the best martini drinks I ever had. Just yummy!
