Made reservations for 630
Arrived 620 and hostess informed us that our table was given away to another group
Hostess said it would be a 20 to 30 min
She assured us that she would tell our waiter would give us complementary dessert or do something ......
She never informed waiter and I didn’t want to bring it up in front of my friends

This is a very popular sports bar so there are numerous TV’s. Reservations are a must. The menu is typical with many choices and reasonable prices. The chicken salad wrap, the rueben sandwich, the fish and chips, and the meatloaf were all good.

The service was spotty. The food was very average. It has a good bar menu. We had the shepherd’s pie (we rate as a 2) and the Mediterranean sampler (3.5). The wine pour was very shallow.

We always love Murphy’s. It was super crowded with two large parties so the food took a little longer than normal but it f course, we’ll be back!!

Seated immediately. The "signature" meatloaf was GREAT. Big enough to share. The table was poorly lit; all of the overhead lights were off; not sure why???? We asked to have them turned on....no one ever did anything. Waitress was nice. Highly recommend the meatloaf!

I ordered a glass of wine when I ordered my dinner, it came after I had finished. We then couldn’t find our waiter to get the check. It took over 20 minutes and multiple requests to other staff members to get it. Finally the manager had to come over to give us the bill. This was our 2nd bad experience in a row. We will have to find another “go to” spot to eat in Rapid.

Although we had a reservation we were greeted by a sign when you entered to seat yourself . It was not that busy and there were empty seats so we seated ourselves. 10 12 minutes passed. Thirsty and tired of waiting we walked out. We were never spoken to or acknowledged
by any employee including the two gentlemen that did not check my ID when we entered. while waitng we had a chance to look over the minimal menu and it wasn't that flattering either

Awful experience. Waited over an hour for food. 2 out of the 4 people in our party received their food, while myself and my sister never got ours. Waited again for the food to be made to go, since we waited so long. Once we opened the to go containers, it was literally the saddest looking meal ever. No effort made whatsoever.

I would recommend it. However the service was really bad. Our server seemed overwhelmed. It was busy. Looked under staffed. We watched our drinks get poured then sit at the bar for 10 minutes. We had reservations at another establishment and we had to tell them to get our drinks so we could make it on time. Sadly we've been there before and had better service. Good good though.

I love Murphy’s- it’s conveniently located in between my work and my house, so I go there pretty much once a week, or once in two weeks. Good food, excellent customer service and not a single time I had bad experience there, I highly recommend this place.

When we arrived our hostess told us she did not have any reservation for us (I had an Open Table confirmation from about 6 hours earlier). She was not apologetic but since they weren’t busy she was able to seat us. After we sat down I found the booth very uncomfortable as I was about 2 feet from the table. Neither the table nor the booth were movable. We waited about 15 minutes without any waiter or waitress even acknowledging our presence. Just a simple “I’ll be right with you” would have kept us there. However that never happened so we just got up and left. Not a good way to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Fortunately we did find a good Italian restaurant just down the street where the service, food and ambience were all very good.

I don't EVER remember walking out of a restaurant before. This place is really terrible!!! Took long time for server to come to our table, even though it was not busy. Ordered soup - arrived lukewarm- sent it back. Ordered food but after 50min it had not arrived. Paid for our beer and left. Server had not been good / attentive and was very sarcastic when we pd and left.
We are part of group bus tour and made sure to pass the word to everyone not to go here. Hate to even give 1 star to this place. Dont know how this place is still in business!

Food was very good! Our server did great, it just took longer than expected for the food to arrive. Overall, it was a very good experience. I would recommend it to anyone visiting Rapid City or the Black Hills.

I usually look forward to my visit at Murphys when in town however after tonight this won’t be my preferred place. Not only were we sat 38 mins past our reservation, the hostess forgot about us and forgot our names having to ask when we got there. She also forgot how many people were on the reservation and tried seating us at a much smaller table than what would be required for 5 people. The place was not managed and had a lot of staff standing around and those that were working were inundated with too many tables and large parties.

Three generations of family for a birthday. My 80 year old parents recommended it for all of us because they like the food and think the atmosphere is fun, they were right on.

Food was tasty but cold. Also the toast for the Rueben was hard as a rock.!
When we made our reservation on line we requested outdoor seating! We arrived on our scheduled time and they told us the didn’t have any outside seating left!! Very disappointed! The bright spot was our waitress! She was an absolute doll and gave us free dessert for all our trouble!! We will be back again... not a quitter ☺️

We waited 2 hours for our entrees that never came and still had to pay full price for the appetizers. After waiting two hours, we asked our nonexistent waitress what was going on and she said our food was supposed to be cooked next. Absolutely the worst restaurant we have ever been to.

We mentioned to our server Adam J that we had been flying all day and were starving. He out our meals in immediately. My turkey melt with smoked gouda was tremendous. The buffalo meatloaf was equally fantastic. Our dining partner said the bbq pork was among the best she ever had. And the service continued to be impeccable. This ranks at or near the top in terms of food of any Irish Pub anywhere.

Cute place but service was pretty bad and one meal was very good and other was way overdone.
Hostess was nice but very slow to seat us and never sent waiter over to us. After about 10 min we asked for waiter to take our drink order.
I had fish sliders which were excellent. Wife has bison meatloaf that was very overdone and a bit charred. Consequently very dry. BBQ sauce was kind of sharp and not great.
