Northwest Sioux Falls has a new neighborhood bar with the opening of Credo’s Pub.
The pub, which has a full liquor license and 32 tap lines, is in a first-floor retail space in one of the apartment buildings in University Hills Village along Marion Road.
Credo’s Pub opened earlier this month with a limited menu of pizzas, wraps and a prepared salad, but is expected to expand this week after an electrical issue is resolved in the new space, said Ethan Harvey, one of its managers. and grandson of owner Dave Birger.
For now, there’s also a limited breakfast menu with sandwiches, burritos, and pizza. Breakfast is served from 7:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. on weekdays and from 9:30 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. on weekends.
The business is an offshoot of Birger’s BB’s Pub N Grill, which closed its original home at 49th Street and Westport Avenue at the end of the year. BB’s plans to build a new location at 4400 W. University Trail, just north of the apartment complex, and Credo’s is serving as its temporary home.
The full menu will feature entrees, rotisserie chicken, 14 burgers, nearly a dozen chicken sandwiches, and some hoagies. The breakfast menu will also be expanded.
Lunch specials are offered daily for $8 and will change each week.
The space is in the southwest corner of the apartment building at 5520 W. Success St. and is filled with sunlight from walls of windows on two sides. Seating for 135 patrons is available at several high top tables, some regular tables, and along the bar. There are 12 televisions and a separate room for video lottery.
A popular weekly deal at BB’s, Fogies Beer School, featuring a brewery or distributor highlighting their offerings, starts again at 6:30 tonight in the new pub. Trivia is offered from 8 to 10 pm on Thursdays and Saturdays.
While Credo’s Pub is still in a soft-opening phase until the full menu is ready, BB regulars and newcomers to the neighborhood are finding it, Harvey said.
“New faces, lots of new people from the apartments around us and definitely just stopping by to check it out.”
Closing times are not fixed, but the pub opens at 7am from Monday to Friday and at 9:30am on weekends. It will typically close after the last NFL game on Sunday night, from 10:30 to 11:00 p.m. Monday and Tuesday, and from 11:00 p.m. to midnight Wednesday through Saturday, Harvey said. Weekend nights could be later depending on crowds.
Those under 21 are welcome in the bar until 10:00 p.m.
