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.

Absolutely a great experience. The Butcher Board was fantastic. I had the Filet and is probably the best steak I’ve had and the Risotto is always good! I will definitely be back!!

We recently ate at Crawford's on a Sunday evening. It was busy but not overly busy, so it was a surprise that our service was so slow. Took 15 minutes to get water and take our drink order. Our waitperson was in a bad mood. Took one half hour to get our drinks. Food arrived luke warm. Our salads were forgotten and we were still charged for them so had to resubmit the bill. All in all, not a great experience.

The food was excellent. We ordered many different things-Ribeye topped with crab-meatloaf and the burger. Never order meatloaf out but it was excellent. Everything was perfect.

We had wonderful service and food and the chef even made me a vegetarian option which was delicious. I would recommend Crawford's for date night or a family outing.

Tomato bisque soup cool, and then lukewarm after reheating. Server was distracted and maybe overworked. Venue was cold and you needed a coat on when you ate at 430.
Main courses were very good.

Food was pretty good but VERY EXPENSIVE for Sioux Falls. Don’t sit at the big table by the bartender-very noisy.

We were pleasantly surprised because we haven’t been to Crawford’s since the new owners and it was wonderful. Great cocktails, pleasant wait staff, great ambiance, the food was some of the best I’ve had in Sioux Falls. We will definitely be going back.

The food was great. We have salmon and a ribeye with mashed potatoes. The service was bad. Took forever to order a drink at our table, never got a water like we asked for. The waiter never came back to check on us. Id go again in hopes to have better service.

Our server Kris Ann?? was wonderful and our food was excellent. Our 2nd time visiting. Our first time was years ago and the service and the food was just awful.
So, it was nice to have a very delicious meal at Crawfords. Thank you Ode Boys.
