Thirsty's has great food, and a great wait staff. Only negative thing I would have to say is the manager (short guy, loves his flannel shirts) is terrible at his job. Not helpful to the wait staff at all. Not helpful to the guests in the building as well. 10 for the wait staff...0 flannel boy.

Lots of food options. We tried things like bison burger and Indian tacos but they have regular pub options too.

Went into the restaurant yesterday (Wednesday) to have a birthday dinner with my family, about 9 of us. Showed up just before 6. We were told they would have to split us all up at different tables because they had trivia at 7. So, an hour before trivia and we couldn’t get seated together as a family because in this restaurant, it appears trivia takes precedence over customer service and actually serving meals.The restaurant we did end up going to afterwards was very accommodating and made quite a bit of money off of our decent sized party. But, trivia doesn’t interfere with their service.

Good Beer, but the mean & grumpy server did not let us finish our beers. They closed at 10, which is fine, but they turned off the lights next to us and asked us to hurry up at 9:40 so they could go home. I tried to talk to the miserable, grumpy lady with the pretty tattoos and she asked me to hurry up and get to it because she was tired and had to work in the morning at her other job. We will never go back to this place. I guess they just don't like to make money & have a successful business. We are a fun, kind, & respectful group of 6 friends, and she ruined our evening because of her crotchety attitude.

Great place to get dinner, the staff are cordial, and the atmosphere is great for a Friday night. They definitely stay busy. Great food. They do have a pool table and a very nice outside seating area with gas fire pits.

Best Burger I ever had. Fries were awesome. We went there two different times, and the young gentleman that served us were fantastic. Guaranteed we will go there again when we go back to Rapid City. Great place.

Good fries and fried food. Vibe could use a little work but nice servers and trivia on Wednesdays is fun!

Dog friendly covered patio is great. We let the waiter pick our beers based on what we liked and had a great time.

This place is awesome. Hands down the best burger I’ve had in South Dakota. I enjoy spicy food and the menu had a variety of interesting sandwiches I wanted the try, but I ordered the cobra burger with the fried corn nuggets as an appetizer. Both were delicious. There are options for non-spicy food as well. Our server was outstanding. If I lived in Rapid City this would be my new favorite restaurant.


I stopped in here after finding all of the presidents in downtown. I was able to sit at the bar enjoy a beer and ordered a really good hamburger. The bartender was very friendly and you could tell that they were very short staffed but you would not have known because they had a great attitude.

A group of us stopped into Thirsty's for a quick beer and light bite. Free parking can be found on the street. Discover is an accepted form of payment. Indoors is spacious and can easily accommodate large groups. Thirsty's offers a generous selection of local craft beer. Service was friendly and efficient.
