For anyone who values great ambiance and an appreciable sense of history, Crawford’s Bar and Grill is undoubtedly one of the best bars in Sioux Falls. The bar occupies a historic brick building downtown, formerly a butcher’s shop that opened in 1896. Notice preserved features like raw brick and quartzite walls, permanent soot stains on the men’s room walls (the space was previously used for smoking meat) and the original butcher’s meat cleaver on display. Vintage accents like weathered leather sofas, panels of cowhide and an old railroad track repurposed as a footrest under the bar add to the memorable decor. Great food and drinks do justice to such an interesting space. The menu focuses on steaks and seafood, while the bar offers comprehensive beer and wine lists plus both creative and classic cocktails. Go on a Sunday for brunch and live music.

Downtown Sioux Falls boasts the original Minerva’s, a beloved institution established in 1977 that has since grown to nine locations. Although it started as a creperie, Minerva’s transitioned into an elegant sit-down restaurant specializing in house-aged, hand-cut steaks, seafood, pastas and more. With a comprehensive range of wines, beers and cocktails to complement its fine cuisine, Minerva’s also claims one of the best bars in Sioux Falls. In summer the restaurant offers outdoor seating, and on weekends year-round it presents live music. Some signature dishes include the crab artichoke bake appetizer for two or four, the 12-ounce hunter’s ribeye with Montreal seasoning and Burgundy au jus, and the seafood stuffed crepe with a white wine lemon cream sauce.
