About the restaurant
Timeless Taste

Morrie's Steakhouse strives for dining excellence. Think back to a time when legends lived. Old Hollywood. Jazz classics. Sophistication with an air of unpredictability. Back then, dining was a complete experience. Outstanding cuts of meat. Crafted cocktails. Unforgettable interactions. At Morrie's, we recapture that timeless taste.

It always amazes me how rude diners can be. Coughing continuously, blowing their noses… at their table! At a fine dining restaurant!! People: EXCUSE YOURSELVES TO THE BATHROOM! Morrie’s was terrific. Finer dining without being too snooty. Perhaps this is why there were children running about unattended and full grown adults hacking up lungs at the table behind us? I probably won’t go back. Not because of the staff or food- I just loathe rude diners when my plate is over $100/person. But, that’s Sioux Falls in 2024. Perhaps it is ANYWHERE 2024?

About the restaurant
Riccardo was born in Florence, Italy and grew up in Boston, MA. Marybeth, a Sioux Falls native, ventured to the east coast as a nanny and then nursing school in Somerville, MA. The two met, fell in love, and became engaged on Martha’s Vineyard island. Moving back to Sioux Falls in 1999 and working at several area restaurants, they opened R Wine Bar in 2018. As owners of R Wine Bar, Riccardo and Marybeth are passionate about one thing: people. They believe that people don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care. With a curated wine list, local craft beer on tap, and beautifully executed menu, Riccardo and Marybeth are thrilled to bring R Wine Bar & Kitchen to the East Bank of Downtown Sioux Falls along with their General Manager, Jane Allen, Assistant Manager Bailey Bernal, Sous Chef Caleb Carr, Sous Chef Esteban Gonzalez, and Culinary Director Adam Schumacher.

Our night out at R Wine Bar was so, so good! Jackson was our server and really was attentive to the special food requests by some of the friends at our table. One can’t have dairy and one was gluten free - both choosing the Sea Bass and said it was fabulous and they will definitely be returning to dine again!! Everything was perfect for our group!!!

About the restaurant
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 dinner and cocktail menu, full bar, 58" LED TVs and fireplace.
