Mad Rock's has a great location in Sioux Falls. Located near downtown and just down the street from the falls themselves. So, perfect for tourist. Inside there is a spacish bar and tables. Also there is a stage for bands. The atmosphere is designed more for the music ambiance. Different instruments, records and other music things cover the walls.

On to the beer. They had 6 beers of their own all on tap. The beer was actually made by the brewing company called “Laughing Water Brewing Co.” but shared the same location as Mad Rocks. Laughing H2O had five regular beers, Golden, Pale, Red, Stout, and Hemp. They had a seasonal too, which was Pumpkin. In addition to Laughing H2O they had 4 other taps for whatever. At the time I went they had Bass and some other foreign beer. Just to note they did have a sampler for their beers as well.

The staff had limited knowledge on the beers but were friendly enough. We ordered food, which mostly consisted of American. Fried food, burgers, steaks, salads, etc. We ended up getting the fried pickles for an app. I’ve had fried pickles before has slices (i.e. “pickle chips”) but this was a pickle wedge that was breaded and fried. Something a little different.

Price wise I though the beer was about right and the food maybe a little bit more. We went kind of early so they didn’t have any specials going on. Or I don’t know if they even had any. Overall it was a good place and in South Dakota!
