The art deco style of the Hotel Alex Johnson is carried through in the custom-designed bar and wine cabinet that house a premium selection of whiskeys, beers, and wines at the perfect temperature. Our bartenders are schooled on all the classics, but if you want something with a bold twist, shake it up with one of our custom cocktails. We are a private bar open to Hotel guests and Vertex Members. If you are neither a Hotel guest or Member, you may make dinner reservations and pay a $20 cover charge. Outside seating is first come first serve. We look forward to seeing you!

The restaurant was fairly busy for a Tuesday night in Rapid City. The service was excellent and the ambiance was next level. That a restaurant like this exists in South Dakota is amazing. I ordered the 8oz filet medium rare and it was delicious and cooked just right. Perfect evening.

The wait staff pleasant enough. They were also very kind to provide a wonderful table that we are grateful. We went for the praised rooftop experience but the weather wasn't behaving so we had to eat inside. But the food... inedible. The amount they charged for a tenderloin dish and a salmon and crab cake dish did not come close to edible quality. Yet, the bill was similar to one we would pay in an upscale restaurant in Manhattan. Cocktail was nothing too memorable either. Go for a decent experience, but keep to a lite fare to avoid disappointment to your stomach and wallet.

Really???? Weak menu average to below average food. & expensive… zero value & no doubt why they were at aprox 20% capacity. Homeless camped out front , saw a police foot chase with a swarm of cruisers behind. Skip this place if you have any sense.

The food ranks at the top of the worst meals I’ve ever had in my entire life. Not only was the food awful, but some ingredients advertised were a work of fiction. For example, instead of prosciutto, they used some sort of thick sliced ham.

I think the restaurant would be a great place if the customers were better, which I know Vertex can not do anything about. Helen was our server and she was great!

I would highly recommend for a romantic date or special occasion. My husband loved his food, and mine was okay. They have great gluten free options for flatbread but their gluten free noodles aren’t amazing. My husband ordered gluten free noodles, and they gave him real noodles. They looked and tasted too good to him to be gluten free, so we double checked that they were gluten free. They told us they were, but I went ahead to triple check and they ended up not being gluten free. Thankfully he did not eat enough to get sick, and I’m thankful that we triple checked. The staff was amazing about correcting their mistake and took money off of our dinner. Overall, it was an amazing experience! If you are highly allergic to gluten — I would be careful, otherwise, amazing!

Our server seemed bored being there and repeatedly ignored us. It took us an hour from ordering to receive our food to the table and we only ordered two entrees without special requests. Our server didn't check on us for 50 minutes from ordering and that was only when we flagged him down. The food was alright, but not worth the amount charged. We had difficulty getting our check to the table. Again, we had to get the attention of our server. We were so disappointed that we left without dessert or after dinner drinks. We will not be returning and recommend you eat elsewhere in Rapid City, SD.

I asked for mine to be Gluten-free. It must have created quite the problem as we didn’t receive our food for quite some time. This was ok with us as we were out to enjoy each other’s company anyway. However, when the food came , my burger bun looked like it had undergone some sort of process to perhaps get it out of a frozen state. It tasted fine though and I truly appreciate it even being offered. The worst part I guess was that I didn’t even receive all of the toppings that my partner had on his burger. I don’t know what happened there but usually a burger is a very safe choice. Everything else was great.

Sat at the very top. It was beautiful. We got our seats very quickly. However, our food took over an hour to get after we ordered it. Our waitress completely forgot my Brussels and because she did that, she gave me a free flat bread, even after she was aware of my gluten allergy. When my Brussels came to me, we were ready to pay and the Brussels were under cooked. The salmon was very dry. Although the scenery was beautiful, the service and food were not.

My husband and I came here for our anniversary and have always wanted to try vertex sky bar out, but never committed due to the price tag. We finally made reservations and were very excited, the view was beautiful and the cocktails did not disappoint but unfortunately the food sucked. I paid $25 for a plate of bland mush, and the burger was also flavorless. Wouldn't recommend unless you're planning on not eating. Customer service was really great though!

It was delicious, however, I didn't think the 2 courses went together at all and there wasn't a vegetable to be seen in either dish. I would have preferred a side veg.

Everything was mostly fine, except for the fact that we had to ask for silverware and napkins and were told at first that they had run out. Really? How do you not plan for the number of guests you are serving on NYE? The server brought us forks and paper napkins. The same server later brought a full set of utensils and cloth napkins to an adjoining table so I made the request again, which was fulfilled this time.

It’s the THIRD time I was over charged so I won’t be eating there again. I’ll stick to drinks and happy hour where it will be easy to see any bill errors.

It was very busy and the waiters were rushed off their feet. They did as well as they could. I had the filet which was excellent and my husband a pasta, which was way over the top with garlic.

But 2 tables near us were yelling and were so loud I literally could not hear my date. I talked to the server and he shrugged and said "well thats how it is" ummm, this place is a fine dining and expensive fine dining restaurant. These other customers were obviously drunk and were literally yelling back and fourth and just getting louder and louder.

Overall, the food was good, nothing special or over the top. We paid a $20 cover charge to enter the restaurant since we were not members. Only recommend to people who actually stay at the hotel, $20 for non-members or guests is ridiculous for the type of limited menu/food and cocktails that were just OK. If you want ambiance and view, go. Otherwise, save your money if food is a deal-breaker for you.
