Kid Friendly Dining

Downtown Rapid City is becoming micro-urban and artsy, but there are still many family-friendly restaurants here (not to mention ice cream and candy stores).

We liked Firehouse Brewing Co., a converted 100-year-old fire station that’s a dark but delicious restaurant and bar. The beer bread is a specialty, but it had a stronger flavor than you would get in typical beer bread. Try the Rancher’s Pie, a pot pie-type dish with flavorful chunks of beef and a solid base of mashed potatoes, or the Firehouse Ale Soup, a deliciously thick and creamy cheese soup. Afterward, take the kids upstairs to see some of the old firehouse equipment.

The local beer and wine are the top draws here, and they’re often served on the outdoor patio with live music. (For more on South Dakota’s wine, see this post by TravelingMom Carmel Mooney)
