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.

We ate on the sidewalk area out front - the waiter was attentive, the food good and the atmosphere extremely pleasant. This is not a fancy place, simply a nice place to have a good meal at a reasonable price. Highly recommend.

Great time to go with friends. Wouldn’t recommend it for a 1st date because of the noise level.

I felt like the food wasn’t worth the price tag and the staff wasn’t overly attentive. They seemed more interested in a nearby table where their friends were. Wouldn’t recommend for dinner but would recommend for drinks.

Service was slow, no water refills till end of meal, bread service was promised but never arrived. Food tends to be inconsistent. Spinach sundried tomato dip tasted almost like flour or other starchy filler, but last time we ordered it a month ago, was good, but no sundried tomatoes. Pork shanks were plump and tender one time, the next time dry and overcooked, shrunk down to the bone. Steak fries did not have Parmesan on them but are “Parmesan steak fries” on the menu.
One guest got croutons with his soup, another guest did not. We love this locally owned place with gorgeous ambiance and are forgiving of the inconsistencies, but others may not be. We would encourage management to review the kitchen performance. If the pork shanks get over done and dry, don’t serve them. Tell the patrons the dish is not available at that time. It is much better to do that than to serve inedible food. Such a high end place needs to live up to its prices.

Food was fantastic, but service was very slow. Several tables were seated well after us and were finished with their meal by the team our food came.

Our waitress was very friendly and the meal was exceptional. I had the surf and turf and my husband had the pork. Then the waitress said since it was our anniversary that desert was on her. Not just a desert they chose but anything on the menu for both of us. We just shared one but it was awesome too. Overall I give it a top rating on all areas we are definitely going back again. Plus downtown Sioux Falls was fun just to walk around.

We had a relaxing drink on the outside deck and then went inside for dinner. Our table was upstairs in the very back corner so away from most activity, it kinda felt like we were put in time out. The food presentation was okay but less than I expected. There was a stray french fry on my plate of Parmesan Crusted Walleye which was a bland meal in itself. My hubby had the halibut and it was a flavor explosion and very good. I guess I chose poorly on the dish. The service wasn't as attentive as I expected here. I was a little disappointed, maybe it was an off night.

Recently moved to Sioux Falls, and hitting the local favorites. This is one of the better options. On historic and trendy Phillips Ave. Cool spot, quirky décor but fun. High quality with a low-key vibe kind of place. Been here 3 times and the proteins and sauces are outstanding. The sides are just okay, could use some imagination. Their cocktails are very good as well. Price and quality on the upper-end for the area. Service is pretty good. Friendly & attentive. Not super-knowledgeable but no pretentiousness either. Overall, if live in Sioux Falls and haven't been here, you should go. Great for "date night." If visiting, I would say you can count on this place for a quality representation of the local scene. Definitely much better than some chain. Plus it is very convenient for local attractions (Sculpture Walk & the Falls).

Really good! We shared the spinach-artichoke spread to start, which was excellent!
Then I had the 2 Filets 2 Ways and the meat was very tender and flavorful. I chose the Mushroom Risotto and Grilled Asparagus...risotto was very good as well. Thanks!

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.

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.

Decent food. Slowest service of any restaurant I’ve had in years and it was not a busy night: Either than the ambiance I have no desire to ever go back. Very disappointed.
