Rimrock Happy Tavern Bar • $$

“I am giving 5 stars because they had 1/2lb cheeseburger and fries for $10. It was very good. Not a fancy place, located on Highway 44. West of Rapid City SD. It was a handmade pattie, not premade round. The little general store also sells groceries. Do not go here if you are high maintenance. It is, definitely a little hole in the wall where people are hard working, kind and serve a mean cheeseburger.“

“If you're looking for a great college bar with a relaxed atmosphere and friendly bartenders, Brass Rail Bar is definitely worth checking out. While it can be easy to walk by when wandering around, this bar is the perfect place to grab a drink after a long day.The bartenders at Brass Rail Bar are some of the friendliest in town. They always greet you with a smile and make you feel welcome. Not only are they great at making drinks, but they also take the time to chat with you when it’s not too busy, and often recognize you and know your name.The atmosphere at Brass Rail Bar is low key and relaxed. It's not too loud or crowded except on weekends when it can really get busy, so you can actually have a conversation with your friends without having to shout over the music (normally!). The bar has a great selection of beers on tap, as well as a variety of cocktails and other drinks. Normally if you ask the bartenders, they often will have a recommendation or some of the bar favorites like the “Antioxygen”Overall, Brass Rail Bar is a great spot for college students and normal people alike who are looking for a great place to grab some drinks and blow off steam.“

“The employees were wonderful, very friendly and checked often to make sure everything was okay.The food was fantastic.

Parking: It was a little hard to find the restaurant's as it was on the opposite side we were coming from and I believe there was parking on a side that looked like it was a closed business….so there definitely is plenty of parking.

Kid-friendliness: They had great “kids meal” choices. We had two younger kids, and they asked if they could bring their meals right away. Which worked out great because the kids sometimes get a little…??? when they are hungry and generally it takes them longer to eat.“
