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.

Spinach artichoke appetizer was fantastic.
Tomato crab bisque was tasty with plenty of crab meat.
Main entree was walleye and arrived at table lukewarm.
Waitress was busy schmoozing table of 8 for better tip and totally ignored my plate pushed out to edge of table to reheat. Finally checked on us 10 minutes later and my wife was already finished with her dinner. Restaurant comped our dinner but the experience was not good

Just a very cool atmosphere and vibe. Excellent food and great service from a friendly staff. Our server in particular was outstanding. We were in town for a concert and wanted a nice meal in a unique setting and Crawford’s certainly answered the call. Thank You!

The food was good and different. My cocktail was disappointing. I always order the same drink when I go out so that was a bummer. We haven't been here in a while. I would have liked the menu to have a few more options. Service was great. Food was good but not great like in the past.

We had good service but the food was horrible. Even a plain ceasar salad the dressing was gross. One salad tasted like it wasn’t washed, the crab and shrimp linguine had no flavor at all. The honey roasted carrots weren’t cooked all the way through. The new menu is not good or worth the price!

Atmosphere is very inviting, rustic and warm. Server was fantastic (Krissanne sp?) she welcomed us and answered all of the questions we had regarding wines and menu items with complete confidence and offered fun historical tidbits about the building. She was very pleasant and made sure we had everything we needed without being too intrusive. Food was phenomenal, husband said this is the best steak he has been served at a restaurant since moving to SF nearly 3 years ago. The meatloaf was absolutely perfect, bruschetta was light and delicious, and the raspberry donut cheesecake was like a dream! Already planning our next night back!

Food was way overpriced. $50 for a steak with no sides, just a slab of meat. Try adding Bread, salad, and potato or vegetable. Added a $15 enhancement Stuffed mushrooms, they were cold on inside didn't taste fresh. My wife Walleye was bland and also over priced. Bartender was extremely slow. Was looking for a relaxing night out and was very disappointed

From outside St. Louis. Steak and pork chop were excellent, mashed potatoes were really good. Building is very nice. Had the J . lohr cab, it was delicious. Mixup on the house manhattan, I’m not sure it had in bourbon in it. Returned and removed from the bill, as it should have been. Got an Angels Envy neat, delicious. Would go again. The downtown area is what we all would hope for.

Put our name in for a table and were told it would be 45 minutes but we could sit on some available couches near the hostess stand and order a drink. Waited 15 minutes to order a drink then had the female bartender (I only mention “female “ just so that the male bartender doesn’t get blamed) come over and ask how to make my drink (dry bourbon Manhattan). I told her and we sat and waited. After an hour, my husband asked the hostess how much longer it would e for our table as everyone else was seated, and she said she forgot about us. Great. We finally get a table (still no drink) and no wait staff person for over 20 minutes…my husband finally went back down to the bar to ask about our drinks and was told that they didn’t have dry vermouth…so rather than ask what else I’d like, they did NOTHING… When our waitress, Kim, finally showed up (she was the only bright spot as far as staff was concerned) we ordered our meal and wine right away because you never know at that point. My husband’s Bistro Filet was quite good. Salads were very good. My pasta with shrimp and crab was also very good. Too bad that the neglectful staff ruined the evening. It was our first time in Sioux Falls and the only restaurant we visited…mistake. We realize restaurants are short staffed and are having issues…but we are very happy with a friendly staff, a drink in our hands and are not usually concerned about the wait. Plus we tip really well. But this was above and beyond. Visit at your own risk…maybe not a weekend.

Sat outside - waited 20 minutes for drink order tho got water right away - that was good. Ordered a bottle of wine after 15 minutes told they told us they didn’t have that wine. Ordered a different bottle, another 15 - don’t have that one either. We Said if you can give us a two for one glass of wine, we’ll stay, otherwise we’re out of here. Food was good, however pasta dishes usually come with bread sticks or French bread - we got nothing. Pasta was supposed to be shrimp and crab. Shrimp was plentiful, crab was not existent. Was not a good experience.

EPIC FAIL. ordered Chicken Fried Steak. After almost one hour wait received food after finally asking server to check. Received chicken fried chicken. Notified server. Then received tough, uncuttable steak which was burnt to a crisp. Entree should never have been sent from the kitchen. Where is chef or expeditor in this restaurant? Does no one bother to check on quality?

Appetizer never received. Was told it was taken to another table. Given a to go appetizer on the house. Big joke as you can see

With all of the issues a manager never once touched the table. Why? Inexcusable.

One of Sioux Falls' best sources for a unique ambiance and spectacular food. The menu is consistently bright, fresh, and carefully crafted. The service is consistently excellent. Crawford's is the go-to for me and my friends for late night drinks and snacking (particularly the charcuterie board).

Unfortunately on our first visit we were set next to the pass. Plates being thrown in pan wait staff going by us but never filling our water, no plates for appetizer lots of little things missed. The place and food was excellent. We will go back and try again just make sure we are not seated there again.
