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.

Great cocktails and a great downtown spot. The food and service were very good. The menu has a varied amount of types of food so that everyone could find something to like. My steak was a little overdone, but that is the only thing I could complain about. For my birthday they brought out s'mores!

Great food with excellent service. Had a small group with people having different entrees/desserts. Every entrée from the meatloaf, land and sea, salmon, NY strip, was excellent. We were all very satisfied with our meal. Service was quick and efficient. Will definitely be back.

We went for a birthday, and they didn’t even do anything for it. Service was slow. The steaks were okay. Fries were great

Verry Good Food. Not the place if you are on a strict budget but if you're like me and only treat yourself to something like this every six months or so it is completely worth it.

Very enjoyable experience. Especially appreciated the music was low in volume, enough to enhance the atmosphere, but not a struggle to have a conversation. Staff were professional and efficient. Food was well prepared.

Food and drinks great
Waiter was not interested in his job, never asked how the food was. Kept removing his mask, making light of Covid

Ambiance was kinda cool. People were dressed appropriately as in not jeans and t-shirts. Service was great. My issue was I asked for extremely rare strip and it came medium. Bisque was not good at all. To be fair, the waitress offered to the it back but the wait time on new years eve was too long so I opted to eat it instead. Great place with good service.

Crawford’s is a fun little gem in downtown Sioux Falls. We drove 2 hours to enjoy great food and atmosphere as MN is shut down. SD doesn’t know how lucky they are to keep these wonderful small businesses open. The steaks were phenomenal and the bisque was incredible. Classy atmosphere and great staff! Don’t be afraid to get out and support restaurants- because I know the Cosco (shopping) was full of people - no excuses- if you can go there you can go support great restaurants like Crawford’s!

Excellent food and service. The staff is very attentive without being annoying. Beautiful décor and perfect ambiance for two sisters to connect and enjoy food and drinks. A must try is a cocktail that arrives with a Szechuan Button flower...you'll be buzzing with excitement!

This place is too inconsistent. Tonight we started with Charcuterie and it was uninspiring for $20. I ordered Sea Bass from feature menu. Waitress came back and informed me they were out. Switched to the salmon that specifically said served med rare on menu(the way salmon should be) waitress asked if I was ok with that and I said yes. Salmon came well done and dry with twice as much sauce that should have been on dish. I want to taste the fish not just the sauce. Rice pilaf was clumpy and dry and asparagus was over cooked. One of my daughters had just a baked potato for her meal and it looked like it was from the day before....and was a 6pm reservation. Spinach crunch salad had way to much crunch for the spinach ratio but was tasty. One of our party ordered NY strip rare and came out med rare. It seems to be a trend or overcooking. For the prices the dishes should be executed correctly. Unfortunately this meal wasn’t worthy of pictures so I have none.

We came from Wisconsin. Wanted to get away and relax without seeing people with masks on. Just wanted to have a taste of normal. So, we read a review stating a person left due staff not wearing masks. That is why I chosen Crawford's. I am so glad I did. The food was wonderful, the prices were great and loved the feel of the place. The place was clean and the staff was friendly. I can't wait to go back in a few of months.

Steak and pork both over cooked. The server was very courteous and actually comped one of our meals and gave us a dessert. We have been here a few times before and it must’ve just been one at night. Great ambience!

The service and food are always great when we’re there. The Mojito I had tasted great. I wanted another but the bar had run out of mint. I ordered a margarita instead but was disappointed with how that turned out. Our server was friendly and attentive.

I ordered the Cowboy Cut Ribeye, medium rare. It’s my favorite menu item. This time around it was very unevenly cooked. A part would be medium, another part would be medium rare, but there was a sizable portion that was barely rare. I didn’t want to send it back, so I ate it as it was.

Overall I believe we had a positive experience. We’ll be back again.

It was nice to be out for a great meal. Server was great and suggested some fun new cocktails for us to try that were delicious. We had a reservation and were seated right away. Walleye Fingers were a delicious appetizer. Highly suggest the Fig Salmon flavor was amazing.

Not sure about the food. We just wanted to get out. The place was packed, no one was wearing a mask. Not even the servers. This in a state that has already made national news once. You can dine out and be safe-but not here. We will not be return.

I am a local and they had good food but expensive. Our table for 6 was next to the bar and it was very loud --- not a fine dine experience that befits the price. We enjoyed the food but there is no justification to return.

Most of our food was very good. However, our server was not! He said the chipotle mashed potatoes weren't hot - they were very spicy and not a good match with the cherry pork chop. We ordered desserts to go and they were flopped in styrofoam with none of the added toppings to make it a $10 dessert. Our server didn't bring bread, didn't check if we needed anything, and was not friendly. Most of our food was so good but the service made this experience less than acceptable.
