We tried both inside and outside seating. Both were fine with interesting characters on the street outside and great service inside. Pizza was decent and there is a large selection of pub style food (lots of fried items). Prices are reasonable and it's a good place to go if you want to watch sports.

Paddy O'Neill's was largely disappointing. After I placed my order, I had to wait 20 minutes for the soup. I asked where it was, and the bartender had to call the kitchen (presumably on the top floor, where the other restaurant is located) to check on it. When it arrived, so did my entree -- bangers and mash. That was... More

We arrived at the hotel late and only had 45 minutes to grab a bite before the restaurant within our wonderful hotel closed, so we thought why not? We both ordered an inside out buffalo burger, but were served a small meatball looking burger that was very dry, missing the cheddar and just not tasty. There might be other delicious... More

Very popular pub with college students. We sat outside a one of the patio tables. Beautiful evening. The servers and bartenders were continuously stepping outside to see if we needed anything. Great service! Our only issue was that we didn't get our appetizer before our meal. In fact we cancelled our appetizer because of it.

We spent our last meal (in SD) here. Service was EXCELLENT... I didn't catch our servers name, but she was very nice! Not necessarily a place for kids, because of what they may hear from those sitting around them.... The f bomb dropped several times, which is more than expected in a bar, just a warning to parents with little... More

Paddy O'Neill's is just off the lobby of the Alex Johnson hotel in downtown Rapid City. It is supposedly named after the first guest to register at the hotel in 1928. It's nice, and somewhat unexpected, to find an Irish bar in western South Dakota, and they have a great selection of draft beers (20-25 on tap from around the... More

Stopped in for a couple of cocktails. Waitress was super friendly. Overall a fun place located right next door to the Alex Johnson hotel which is a Hilton property.

While visiting the city my wife and I dropped by one afternoon to have a wine. After about two hours we departed. During our stay there that afternoon we met two other couple from Minnesota.

Description
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.
