We enjoyed our dinner at Murphy’s! The server was friendly and helpful. We had pork sliders and boneless wings. The sliders were the winners of the night- really tasty, tender meat and cranberry coleslaw served on a soft, fresh bun. The BBQ sauce was sweet,...as was the coleslaw, but that’s how we like it! The boneless wings were just ok. They looked pretty (although strangely all the same shape and size) and tasted good, but nothing to write home about. Overall, I would definitely return - and have the sliders again!More

Even though it was packed, the service was really good and efficient. Our server Richard was very helpful. My husband enjoyed the fish & chips and I had the salmon blt sliders. They were quite good.

This was our first time here. We were on vacation and decided to eat here because of the Trip Advisor reviews and their patio is dog friendly! We went to dinner on a Friday night about 4pm before they were busy. Great things: Pet friendly...patio Very friendly staff and great service. Large patio with plenty of seating and outside bar. Clean restrooms Amazing food. I had the dish and chips with a side salad. The fish was amazing and prepared perfectly! The fish and fries were not greasy! My salad was very fresh with tasty ranch dressing. My ice tea was fresh and strong. My husband ordered the pulled pork BBQ sandwich. He really enjoyed it and said it was really good. Ok: The cranberry coleslaw was ok. It was very heavy on the mayo. We will definitely be eating here again before we go home for vacation.More

Conveniently located to our hotel we visited twice for early dinner. Both times the waitstaff was friendly and welcoming. Food is pub fare with local twist. Enjoyed the buffalo meatloaf and an oatmeal stout beer ( so smooth and delicious) that was locally brewed. My...husband enjoyed the steak. Our companions raved about the salmon sliders. Nice local experience.More

Given the name Murphy's, I was hoping for a delicious lamb's stew and I wasn't disappointed. A few more lamb pieces and I would have given 5 stars. As with so many places these days, they were short staffed and a group of 20 came...in right before us. Be patient and polite. Our server did his best.More

Today I ordered the salmon, which I have been extremely impressed with over the last 2 months. Today it was terrible! My server, who is excellent, comped the salmon, as I did not eat more than one bite. He asked if I wanted something different,...so I ordered the tomato mozzarella salad- historically good- today it was terrible-unripe tomatoes and together tomatoes BUT Rich, my server is fabulous!!!! He bought my 1st drink and has been so professional with EXCELLENT customer service skills!!!! I will return because of his service! The cooks however, need some serious, SERIOUS, help. I rate TERRIBLE for the food today- not every day-and excellent for Rich and his service! Murphy's should consider themselves blessed to have him!!!!! Sincerely, TWMore

Nice vibe at this local’s spot. A great oompa band played as we had a nice early dinner. Caleb, our server, was friendly and attentive. We enjoyed a Rueben as well as a Turkey Melt, which were both delicious. If you are staying in this...area, have a nice time here!More

This is my first trip to RC and, to be honest, I'm not sure when I'll be back. But, when I come, I will plan a trip to Murphy's. It really was a perfect, casual dining experience. The food was uncomplicated, well prepared and, above...all, quite tasty. The wine / drink list was good and well paired with the food and setting, the atmosphere was easy and relaxed, and the service was altogether friendly and competent. And, of course, the price was very reasonable. To paraphrase an old saying, it's the sort of place where everybody knows your name, or at least you wished that they did. That's why I'll plan to come back.More

My wife and I were visiting Rapid City and decided to eat an early dinner at Murphy's Pub & Grill. We were seated quickly and the wait person stopped by right away. The place has a good selection of beer (& cider) as well as...several TVs playing sporting events. My wife ordered the Matt's Melt with fries and I ordered a Ruben with fries. Her sandwich was awesome; my Ruben was just ok. Fries were hot and tasty. Several sauces, including ketchup, tarter, and ranch, were available for dipping. The wait staff was very friendly and attentive. The atmosphere was casual. Food arrived quickly. Other than the Ruben being just ok, we would eat at Murphy's Pub & Grill again if we find ourselves in the Rapid City area.More

They have a huge patio where dogs are welcome. We had 2 large dogs, so size was no issue. I believe the season is just opening up for outdoor dining because the shorter chairs for regular tables were all broken and a lot wasn't set...up out there. However, they accommodated us even though they didn't have servers out there. We were worried service may be slow, but it wasn't. Very good service and they brought a water bowl out for the dogs. The food was VERY good. My daughter is still talking about the sweet potato fries, which she said were the best she's ever had. We both had the buffalo meatloaf wrapped in bacon on sourdough. It was excellent, but the bread was more like plain white bread, not sourdough. The patio was large and you could have shade or sun depending on where you sit. There was also corn hole & jenga that kids were playing while we were there. Must pay for parking on street. Overall, great place.More

We did a business social at a place recommended by the locals and had a great meal. Top notch friendly service with great local brewed beer and flavorful food. I had the Dakota Pulled Pork Sandwich and the Beer Cheese Soup and they were outstanding....I look forward to my next trip to Rapid City to go back.More

Classic pub menu but upscaled. Murphy Burger was unique and really really really good. Cranberry Cole slaw was genius. Chips are made in-house and are worth the visit all by themselves. Biggest problem was that we sat at a table where we could see everything...coming out of the kitchen, and we wanted to order everything we saw. Seriously. Murphy's will be a definite go to spot for us. Staff was perfect balance of fun and attentive but let us enjoy our dinner date. Kendall is a rock star.More

We happened upon this pub via reviews from Trip Advisor and others. What a surprise. The place is clean, relatively quiet and has a warm feel. The staff was friendly, attentive and efficient. The food was excellent. Members of our group had the Shepards Pie,...Buffalo Meatloaf Entree, Buffalo Meatloaf Sandwich, Adult Grilled Cheese Sandwich and Salmon Salad. All claimed their food was great. The cocktails were nicely sized, not watered down and ice -filled like some restaurants. My wife claimed it was the best Manhattan she has had at a restaurant in years. Great selection of beers. Reasonable prices, but the quality of the food made it an excellent value. We liked the place so much we went back the next night. I give this place A+. Parking is good, but get there around 5 for happy hour and best parking. The place does start to fill up around 6. Free street parking after 6. Located in a nice safe area.More

Our hotel concierge suggested Murphy's when I asked for a good restaurant with a nice bar. The service was excellent, food delicious, and great mix of people. We saw families, working people, young, old, happy and a couple of cranky, but nice melting pot to...people watch. I had a great burger and Jodi had fish and chips and mentioned how crispy the fish pieces were, a good thing.More
