Situated in beautiful historic downtown Sioux Falls: surround yourself with century old quartzite and brick walls, funky & energetic ambiance, tempting & flavorful dishes, innovative cocktails and an extensive wine & beer list. Take notice of our namesake as you are stepping over the threshold, the original 1963 Crawford's logo is still there. The decor unabashedly integrates masculine and feminine: wild west meets gypsy...from the cowhide paneled bar, quartzite bar top, iron railroad track footrest and reclaimed wood tables to the vintage tiles, jeweled wallpaper, Moroccan chandeliers and antique Indian columns ...no detail is left untouched. The same holds true for the food: from your prime cut of steak to the wild-caught salmon, every element is carefully considered. Excellent lunch & dinner menus, full bar, 58" plasma tv's and fireplace.

Brought some out of town guests to Crawford’s. Everything was outstanding as usual. As we were driving home, they said that they want to come back next time they come for a visit.

Love this place. Been going for years and always order a steak. Most recently I ordered a pasta dish and the chef KILLED IT! Now I’ve got a tough decision the next time I’m there.

Great first time back to Crawford's post-quarantine. Ordered the Chicken Pomodoro, at it was excellent. Always have loved the staff, and intimate set up as well inside. Patio dining available as well. Check it out!

The food at Crawford's is outstanding. Large portions, fresh, hot. The space is historic and so so classy. And the owner, Dave Graham, is a great guy who is committed to providing this awesome dining option in downtown Sioux Falls.

This is one of my favorite places to eat in Sioux Falls. I like the smaller size of the restaurant and the variety of menu choices. I always get one of the steaks and have always had it prepared just the way I like !!! My husband likes to try a variety of the specials and is always impressed.

I loved the two filet steak dinner. My baked potato was huge and baked to perfection. I always enjoy the wedge salad because the dressing is so good. I will be back.

Great first time experience, my only complaint is that you need to update your menu online!!! With the simplicity of online changes, why would you not have updated menu and pricing.

Service was excellent and food was very good, but the menu is in dire need of updating. I'd like more variety instead of the same, limited menu that has been in place for way too long.
The noise level, as always, makes it hard to hold a conversation.

Although the restaurant has a great ambience an location, the prices are higher than advertised. In addition it took us an hour to get our food.

We had reservations and we still waited over 20 minutes before we were seated. When we were finally seated we waited to get a glass of water. The table next to us toasted to finally getting some water and that’s when we knew we weren’t getting food any time soon. If you aren’t hungry and have nothing to do for several hours this restaurant may work, but otherwise I would HIGHLY recommend that you go somewhere else!!!! It was the slowest service I’ve ever experienced!!!

Very expensive for the quality, in my opinion. The dessert was $9, and the featured dessert was a peach cobbler. It came as peach soup, basically. No "cobbler" in it at all. I said something to the waitress, and she just said "oh, I'll have to tell the kitchen". No suggestion for a replacement. $25 for pasta is a little extreme. The sauce wasn't sauce, it was just a coating, with no "sauce". The least expensive item is a hamburger at $17. The fries were tasty, though. When we arrived we were going to be seated at a high table in the bar area. There were plenty of seats in the restaurant part and we asked to be seated there. It was quiet there, which made it a much more pleasant dining experience as far as conducive to conversation. I most likely will not return.
