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.

Usual excellent food, drinks pork shanks were wonderful. Try to get table in upper level for lower traffic level & noise.

This was our first time in Cedar Rapids and found this restaurant to have dinner with our friends. Service and food was awesome. Went for dinner at 5:30pm and stayed until 9:00pm. We enjoyed the restaurant so much we did not leave and stayed for several drinks. The Old Fashions were awesome! Truly enjoyed the evening and would recommend!

The meal portions were large. For the food that we tried, we didn't feel it was very exceptional for the pricepoint in either flavor or presentation.

First, I love Crawford’s. The servers are wonderful. We must have hit an off night. I know it was busy with a huge party of 40 upstairs.
My walleye was over cooked, the Parmesan crust was a thick, leathery crust. I couldn’t cut it even with a knife. I ripped it with my fork and fingers. All I could taste was the chewy Parmesan. The fries my daughter ordered were ice cold. My friend’s medium rare fillet was overdone.
I’m only sharing this to help you improve, not to be whiny. It is an expensive place and so people expect above average quality.
Thank you.

This is my third time there and love the place. I didn’t have luck with the ribeye this time. It was dry and not too flavorful. I will be back when I am back in town, but will venture to other parts of the menu.

Nicely located in DTSF. This restaurant is one you'll want to try for sure. Awesome for a romantic evening. And don't forget to sample the "Epiphany" cocktail... It's all the buzz!! 😉

Would definitely recommend to anyone who is not on a budget. Service was great and really cool ambiance. We had 2 appetizers - Calamari and Spinach Artichoke dip - both were amazing. Four of us all ordered different entree's which were all fantastic, especially the mushroom risotto and the spinach & toasted almond risotto. Was expensive, but definitely worth it for special occasions.

We were a party of 9. Even though we had a reservation they seemed surprised to see us. The service was very very slow. The area that we were seated in at the back of the restaurant is kind of deteached, very "remote", bland and without any ambiance.
The food was good

Food was amazing! Worth every penny. I had the filet cooked medium rare and wrapped in bacon.

The server was a little slow coming to our table and we didnt get drinks until 25 mintues in. She did seem real busy though so not going to bash her.

Stopped in here after a day of travel and the meal was all we could have asked for. Wonderful flavor in a quiet relaxing atmosphere that speaks of old downtown. Don’t miss the calamari-it’s amazing and the best we’ve ever tasted!-

So the food was fantastic, but the service for what you pay isn't there. When I buy a $50 bottle of wine, I don't expect to pour it myself. Sounds snooty maybe, but the purpose of paying more is for the service. If I wanted to serve myself, I would've stayed home.

Very good downtown restaurant in an old, narrow former clothing store building w/Sunday evening music. Excellent drinks & food. Service excellent. Suggest request seating on upper level. Also have ground floor & street patio seating.

We ordered ribeye, med rare. It was cooked to perfection. My sides were grilled asparagus and cheesy risotto. The asparagus was grilled to perfection. The risotto was very good but a little to salty. My dinning partner had the Parmesan steak fries. They were crispy and awesome
