The good: nice location in beautiful downtown Rapid City, the house favorites food selection featured dishes cooked with their beer a big plus and different. The Bangor ladder( sausages with garlic mashed potatoes and sauerkraut) was good and the beef stew stout in a sourdough breadbowl also looked very good). The bad: I dont know if it was all the tourist but they were serving more wine, mixed drinks, and bottled beers than any taps. While there was about 1 server for every 2 tables there was only 1 bartender, service at bar was slooooow. The ugly: The IPA was one of the poorests examples I have ever tried

Stopped here for lunch on trip to Billings, MT. Easy to find location with good parking all-around. 1915 Firehouse with a patio on the right between two buildings. Inside has bar in the middle with brewing tanks behind glass on main level and tanks and seating for food on second level. Old fire equipment as decor. Five beers on tap as sampler. Selection is limited but very drinkable. Food menu is pub food. I had the Taco salad which was good size and fresh. A shining star in the sea of darkness for beer in South Dakota.

I was here in 2004. I sat upstairs where you can look down at the bar. The service was good, especially from a sexy waitress. A selection of on micro brew beers where available and good to. Also good tucker.

The building is pretty sweet being it was the old firehouse. I am from the Rapid City area so I have been here a few times. The food is pretty good and so is the service. The beer is really good especially the brown cow ale. It is a must see if you are in Rapid City

January 2004: Cool use for the old downtown fire station. Although the beers weren’t exceptional, they were decent. This place was doing hopping restaurant business, so the service was a bit off, but otherwise it was worth the stop. (April 2006 revisit ... wasn’t as busy tonight, and the service was still off!)

Visited here on vacation in the summer of ’03. The setting is an old converted fire station and has a balcony overlooking the bar. I had the sampler of beers and all were pretty much standard brewpub fare - nothing really jumped out and a few were phenolic. The food was standard pub fare - decent and the service was a little slow to those of us sitting upstairs. Worth a visit though if you find your self in downtown Rapid City.
