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.

    Blue cheese dressing was not good - the meat was overdone and dry - I really did not like the salad. The wine was ok.

    Food was over priced for what u get. Don’t get any side orders with a $54 steak! No bread with your meal. Place was loud, had the most uncomfortable table in history. Table was in a corner and u couldn’t even get your legs under it. Desert was great.

    Waitress did not like us so she ignored us and did not respond to our “asks”. Food was cold by the time someone brought us a plate to eat off of. Drinks came very slow. We ate appetizers but after that experience we skipped dinner. It was our 22 year anniversary. Very sad.

    From the time we were seated and Casey introduced herself as our server, the evening was enjoyable. The food, drinks and especially the Key Lime Pie were fabulous. We ordered multiple items so I will say the salads were delicious and flavorful. The Epiphany Martini was very good and the wine selection was superb. We will return!

    Food is great- highly recommend the cheese cake! The pours for the allocated bourbon are crazy compared to other bars but their selection is phenomenal. They were very understaffed so that service took a while, as did food and drinks but our server was very sweet just clearly stressed.

    Vanesa is a great server. Love it when she serves our table. There was a smell in the restaurant for some reason like a plumbing problem. Food was very good for most of us. The pasta that one person got was too salty. The meat and cheese tray was a great appetizer.

    I went to Crawford’s because my wife wanted to go for our anniversary. I made a reservation on Open Table and told them that I would be celebrating my wedding anniversary. We arrived and the hostess asked us if we were dining in and I told her that we had a reservation. She knew my name and took us to a table and asked us if it would be ok. It looked alright but I soon found out that it was right by the bathroom. Also, neither the hostess nor the server acknowledged our anniversary. I guess that I am just a little spoiled because other restaurants that we have dined with on our anniversary have gone above and beyond to make it a special night. To not even have it acknowledged was a little disappointing to say the least. Also, it just seemed like we were led to a table and no preparation for our special event was made. Overall I liked the food and drinks. The server was a bright spot for our night as he was awesome! I wish I remembered his name because he should be singled out for excellence by his manager. We also had a guy at a table next to us that was loud and every other word out of his mouth was an F bomb. Overall, the food is pretty good and at least our server was exceptional. However, if you’re celebrating a special event or trying to have a romantic dinner I’d steer away from Crawford’s.

    We are always looking for a great spot downtown to hang out with friends on a night out.And our new favorite spot is Crawford. I have gone about 4 times before leaving my review. The staff are amazing , very observant to our needs, always checking in on us in a polite manner. Very aware of the menu and able to answer any questions about food or drinks in great detail. The food was absolutely amazing we all tried a different appetizer, would highly recommend every single one. The food itself was absolutely amazing, portion size were perfect! 10/10 would recommend to anyone looking for a great atmosphere or just a nice dinner. Food is 10/10 !

    Crawford’s used to be our go to eats and drinks place in Sioux Falls….. unfortunately we will just be going for drinks from now on. They had a menu that we were looking forward to trying out. Everything sounded great but we were extremely disappointed. My wife order the beef ribs which were mostly fat. She could only manage to finish off a few bites do to the fat and tendons through the cut of meat. My steak was mediocre at best. I hate to give a bad review because we used to love this place. On a positive note, our drinks were great! So we will continue to drink but not get food….. sorry Crawford’s but you have got to do better!! Sioux Falls needs you to raise your food standards.

    Crawford's Bar & GrillResponded on June 24, 2022Hi, thank you for your feed back. We take your review seriously and will address these issues with our staff. Glad you enjoyed your drinks! We hope you will consider giving our food menu another chance.

    It was busy for a Monday and we were seated upstairs at a round table for 5. Service was friendly but slow and we felt a little “neglected”. Steaks were fabulous! My flatbread was just good but not great. Side dishes and appetizers were also very good. Would give it another try.
