Murphy's Pub and Grill Ratings and Reviews
Met some friends for dinner. Had a really great meal, service was fantastic.
Went there for dinner while I was on business. It appears to be a more local place. It took quite a while until someone came by to wait on me. They weren't real busy, but the service was not as good as I would like to see. I will be back in town in another month. I probably will not go back.

My Mom and I were visiting SD for vacation so we stopped in Murphy's for our last dinner before flying home. I got Matt's Melt and my Mom got the pork sliders. Both were delicious. I would highly suggest!
I dined in the evening during the week. I really enjoyed the small steak with great spiced mashed potatoes. The develed eggs appetizer was very good. My service was pleasant and attentive. I noticed they have great staff. I plan on returning whenever I am in Rapid City. This is a old building, just off the main street. Do not be fooled by the outside structure. You should go in and sample the menu.
One night in Rapid City
We were here on Easter for dinner. Pub was nice, our waiter was friendly and food served quickly. I had grilled chicken sandwich which would have been good but was over done and almost too dry to eat. Husband had bison meatloaf which he really enjoyed.
What a treat. First time. Noon lunch.
Already recommended to a friend. We're coming back for an evening meal sometime Fun atmosphere!!

The service was great, the waitress was very friendly and did a great job. The food was great but it could of been hotter. My compliments to the Chef but I am guessing it was setting to long before we got it. That was the only downfall of the night was the food was not hot enough.
New Years Eve
Lobster overpriced, lobster max and cheese turned into a appetizer, disappointed. Server was good, but again very overpriced for what we got.

Thank you! We try to make it as much as possible! Love upstairs and downstairs!
Food and Service was fantastic!!!!!!!
Our waiter Adam was superb! Very tentative, respectful, made your dining experience all about you, good sense of humor and courteous. Honestly, his caliber of service was 5 star, he reminded me of waiters at High End Restaurants in Los Angeles, California. If you get a chance to have dinner at Murphy's Pub and Grill be sure to ask for Adam!!!!!!! I promise he will not let you down. Adam made sure his customers were takin care of to the fullest. I will dine at Murphy's again and try something new of the menu. The Buffalo Meat loaf was great and so was the Elk Stroganoff. Meal presentation was on point. The may be considered high for some, but the quality and quantity is well worth it. Something else that is cool about Murphy's is, you can make reservations using the "Open Table" app. Of course you can call to make reservations, but the app is handy too. Let's just say if you do not like the food, atmosphere and service you definitely need your head checked! Thank you Adam for the great service!!!
Sunday in Rapid City
We had dined during the week for lunch at the sister restaurant Kol on Main Street which was very good and a great lunch spot. Burgers, Pizzas and Paninis. Murphys was the only restaurant in town we found to be open on Sunday night. They claim to close at 9 but 10 seemed to be more realistic. Salads and soups were all well received. Fresh cooked chips served with Buffalo Sauce and Blue Cheese was a great shared starter. I had Lamb Shepherds pie which was excellent, Burgers and Sandwiches were also very good. Dessert was huge disappointment. Very dry Carrot cake was hidden with Strawberries and Whipped Cream. Creme Brulee had a nice crisp top but was soup in the bowl, it was sent back. The Carrot cake should have gone back too.
Beyond the menu
Susan made our meal more enjoyable by getting the bartender and cook to come thru with items no longer on the late afternoon menu...spicey bloody mary's with a side of fried sausage that were seemingly odd but delicious! We would have them again. There were no onion rings on the menu and she had the cook make some...they should be on the menu. FUN place to eat and the food was good...it's good bar food!

Buffalo meatloaf was moist, flavorful, excellent. Terrific beer on tap.
Had a party of four, and had to wait for food more then an hour. Finally received food, but two of the party got theirs and the others still waited for 15 minutes. Finally received meal and meat was well-done ordered medium rare, sent it back and had to wait another forty five minutes. The food was good, but the timing was awful. Our whole party couldn't enjoy because people were eating while the others weren't and one had to bring their meal home. Noticed it wasn't just our table, but it was happening to others. Noticed one table just left because the wait for food was horrible. Then another table couldn't get a drink correctly done. It was sent back three times.
We had a great meal and great service, with Jen as our waitress. The buffalo meatloaf was to die for!!!
Good but loud
My wife and I went to dinner with visiting friends to catch up. The atmosphere was perfect. We had to talk a bit loud to be heard but that was ok. The service was great and the food excellent. My wife enjoyed the Shepard's Pie and I had the open faced buffalo meatloaf sandwich. Our friends had the salmon salad and watermelon pulled pork BBQ, which were all were excellent. We will definitely go back.
Local Bar scene
Lots of locals hanging out in this local bar. Great patio with fire pits and inside bar was rustic but well appointed. Little bit of a pick up joint, but didn't deter from the overall vibe. Food was good and it is a good place to stop on a road trip.
Elk can be tough!
The Elk Stroganoff was very tasty, but the meat was VERY tough.
Murphy's Pub Rapid City Sd
The Murphy Burger, Wings and Meatloaf Sandwich were great!
Not bad for pub food
We stopped here on a one night layover in Rapid City and wanted a casual meal. The food was what we expected: hubby had the fish and chips, I had the pulled pork BBQ sandwich and sweet potato fries. Both meals were good and plentiful. Our waiter was exceptional, very friendly.
While visiting Rapid City we went here for dinner. Super cool place, cool vibe. Great beer choices and options for kids. Food overall was decent, our waitress wasnt overly friendly but wouldn't stop me from going back.
One thing was disappointing. Ordered a pint of Guinness and given a half ping! Was charged for a 16oz full pint twice. Maybe they just don't know the difference... Great food and place.
Would highly recommend eating here. Service and food top-notch! You won't be disappointed.
Food quality lower than expected
Our medium-rare steaks have been served cold. Manager advised us to have the meat well-done to ensure that the steaks are warm also in the middle. Couldn't believe to hear that. However, the we received new steaks which were better but not excellent. Based on the various reviews I have read before visiting this place I did expect a much higher qulity of food.
I had their sliced Granny Smith Apple/grilled onion cheeseburger. It might have been the best burger I have ever eaten.
Strange menu, trying too hard to be "fancy."
Menu had no simple dishes on it. Sauces I had never heard of, sides no one in the Dakotas eats, strange combinations on dinner choices. Seasoned potato wedges were great, but my medium-well burger was still bleeding. Great place if you plan on drinking with friends or hordes of tourists, but I'll stick with local diners for food.
A good RC staple
Always a great place to meet a friend, have lunch or take out of town family/guests. Food was great and they have a few very nice craft beers.
totally 100% great experiance
Our waiter (I believe his name was Mark) was very attentive, friendly, and knowledgeable about things to do in Rapid City. A must do when in town.

Good food but horrible service. I sat for 10 minutes before even getting a menu. Waiter never checked on me after my food was delivered. 30 minutes after I was finished eating still no waiter. I had to flag someone down to find waiter to get my check. Worst service I have ever received.
Perfect end to a 30 night trip.
Very comfortable seats, great servers and excellent food. One of the best rib-eyes ever.
Great experience, outstanding food
If you go, you MUST order the Mac & Cheese, Thor style. Unbelievably good.

Great, attentive service. Need better quality wines. Willing to pay more for better wine. Would visit regularly if had better wine.
The food is fun and tasty
This place is just pure fun and on weekends ask about the hidden speakeasy you may get lucky and gain access drinks food and service top par and enjoyable environment that just hops in the main dining room. Just worth a visit!
Really a local hotspot
The food is really interesting. Full menu so a grand dinner is available but top notch bar food too! It's really a place to visit while in Rapid city the bar is great mixologists too!
Not the Murphy's of 1960's
This eating establishment. Drinking establishment. It has a well varied choice of diners. It is located about 2 blocks west of 8th street ( touristly known as Mt Rushmore Road. Parking is iffy. but Street parking is easy. Be sure to have coins because it is metered parking. and Rapid City cops are HOT ON those whose meter time is up.

I was on vacation when I visited Murphy's Pub. If I lived in the area this would be a place I would frequent.
Fun after work atmosphere
Tried Murphys primary because we were traveling with our pooch, and she was accepted on the patio-so I can not attest to the inside dining experience. Outside was very nice, and if we had stayed later, I noticed they had nice fire pits. In reading some previous reviews I noted that many complained about the service...I didn't see any problems with the staff...matter of fact, they were almost on overkill checking to see if we were happy with our food...so maybe someone did pay attention! So outside was really nice, food good....servers attentive. Inside looked very nice, would return if we lived there.
Great local restaurant
We dined here while visiting from Denver. Amazing beer selection. The food was delicious! We tried the sausage appetizer, the elk stroganoff and kids had hand-made burgers. Great flavors! Hostess was new and clueless. Left us waiting 3 times at hostess stand to ask where to seat us. Not enough wait staff.
Our waiter was great, speedy and attentive. But he was in charge of like 15 tables.... He kept up but I was suprised he had to do it alone. Well, I guess more tips for him. Love the ambience and food! Will definitely come again. Reccomend to anyone and everyone for lunch to happy hour :)
