Was my 48th birthday dinner!Brandon ScalesBrandon Scales ★★★★★ Very awesome experience, if you have never been then you should go at least once!KatelynKatelyn ★★★★★ Absolutely stunning eatery with delicious drinks and friendly staff. Will definitely be coming back for date night. The only issue is the elevators were stuckBryan KonechneBryan Konechne ★★★★★ Well done!Our first experience at this new location and see really enjoyed ourselves. There were a few small hiccups, but the wait staff and kitchen are getting things figured out. The food was delicious, and the portions were healthy without the need to take home leftovers. Items are pricy here, but you're not visiting Juniper for a fast food experience.Order a second drink and tip your server well. Juniper is a Rapid City staple that I hope sticks around for years to come.Daniel HenryDaniel Henry ★★★★★ A much needed upgrade to the best dining location in Rapid.George Larson IIGeorge Larson II ★★★★★ Karla was amazing and so was ye old Manhattan!!! Great views!!!Blaine SimonsBlaine Simons ★★★★★ I don't drink but the atmosphere is great!R WR W ★★★★☆ Amazing views from the rooftop. Good atmosphere.Casey RoskamCasey Roskam ★★★★★ Didn't get food but the drinks were delicious. The bartender was quick and cool.PJ BeaudryPJ Beaudry ★★★★☆ Can’t beat the view and ambiance, and the service was fantastic. Good was great, if a little pricey for the portions.Jennifer HovisJennifer Hovis ★★★★☆ It was our first time here, and our son and daughter in laws 2nd time. The onion soup was a little sweet but otherwise flavorful, the ratatouille soup had a good flavor but the portion was small in comparison to the onion soup. I had the filet and it seemed to have a better flavor than the ribeye that everyone else ordered. The creme brulee was fabulous, they liked the try me dessert (good variety) I didn't care for the berry chocolate compote dessert. The BlackBerry hills smash drink, and the old fashioned #89 were on point!Keith CarlsonKeith Carlson ★★★★★ Newly reopened. Excellent atmosphere and the food was well prepared and presented. Kristin was a very engaging and attentive server.Robert MieleRobert Miele ★★★★★ Great panoramic view of the city. We only had drinks not sure about the food. Service was good,Tom SpinnerTom Spinner ★★★★★ We had the chicken pasta dish and Buffalo ravioli. Both great. My old fashion was on point as well! View from roof top seat was great as well.Paul VerzaalPaul Verzaal ★★★★☆ If you visit Rapid City, SD, and have the time, this is a pretty cool place to check out. Rooftop bar and restaurant located in an upscale downtown hotel. Food is expensive and good, but not all that. The service and atmosphere are what you come for and the mixed drinks are pretty tasty also.Allan AndersonAllan Anderson ★★★★★ My wife and I love this place. We come here at least once a week for cocktails and appetizers.The view is great, and when the weather is nice the vertex experience is the best in rapid city. It is great for relaxing a bit after work.They have a full bar. You can find a legitimate martini here. I have also had the old fashioned offerings and they are spot-on.The bruschetta appetizer is our current favorite but the charcuterie board is a close second. They just revamped their kitchen (I think it's separate from the pub now), and the food quality has improved.If you sign up for the club, you get some nice perks like free valet and half price appetizers. Makes parking for downtown events a no Brainerd.Can't wait till we can go back this friday!Lisa HLisa H ★★★★★ Food and service was amazing! The outdoor patios were beautiful. Nice view of downtown Rapid City.ToddTodd ★★★★★ Beautiful viewsMy LeMy Le ★★★★★ Met a local at a nearby restaurant and he recommended this roof top bar as a must see. I’m so glad we went because the service, view, drinks and history were phenomenal. View would be better at night.It’s on the 10th floor and you need a keycard to get to that level. In front of the elevator is a collage of all the past famous guests.We got an old fashion, Heather Hendrick’s and a mocktail for my mom. The mocktail was made with raspberry. Heather Hendrick’s had gin, elderflower and Prosecco.Shout out to Brandon, the manager who made our entire time unforgettable.Clay MyersClay Myers ★★★★★ An absolute if you’re in Rapid City. Even if you’re not staying at hotel, Alex Johnson, it should be your destination evening spot.Claudia GomezClaudia Gomez ★★★★★ Ladies night out ended at The Vertex Sky Bar. Our bartenders, Brandon and Wyatt, were friendly and helpful. This is the perfect spot for a ladies night out or a romantic night out with your partner. This is definitely on the list for the next trip!Jonathan NajarroJonathan Najarro ★★★★★ Great food and fun place to people watch. I saw some creepy dude strike out lol.Chris GriffinChris Griffin ★★★★☆ Enjoyed a great view of the night lights of Rapid City.Brett DuguéBrett Dugué ★★★★★ A RAPID CITY MUST DO!!!Erika VerscheldeErika Verschelde ★★★★★ Bases on an overwhelming MUST TASTE recommendation, I made a quick stop to try the special desert of the day. It was spectacular and if I visit here again, it will be a must to try more. The chef personally described the desert to me before he prepared it and had it sent to me special delivery. If you are in Rapid City, stop to see the views from the rooftop and try the desert. Next time, I will be stopping in for the full meal.Sandy BahrSandy Bahr ★★★★☆ Really nice place to relax and have a drink. Rooftop bar with fireplaces. We didn't eat there. Wait staff was attentive. 10th floor with a great view!Paulo OliveiraPaulo Oliveira ★★★★★ As the tallest place in town and being this a rooftop restaurant, you just can't beat the view: great sights from all over the area. Nice food and wine selection, and it just so happens I was there on Music Monday with live music. Very great option if you are in town. It was also nice to try buffalo steak here.js_loader
