The Best Brunch Restaurants in Sioux Falls

Due to the city’s longtime dependence on chain restaurants, finding the best brunches in Sioux Falls was once an unexciting endeavor. The opening of a lone Middle Eastern eatery a decade ago changed this, and the downtown area has since served as the city’s epicenter for granting epicurean wishes. But where do the most demanding and savviest diners consistently choose to get their brunch fix? Welcome to our Tastemaker List. By compiling data from thousands of restaurants in every state, OpenTable has managed to pinpoint the establishments that the most seasoned diners just can’t stay away from. The city hosts plenty of South Dakotan favorites - such as pheasant and walleye, bierocks, chislic, and kuchen - to go around. And while everyone should try these popular staples, guests at the following eateries can get adventurous with classic and new-age cuisine alike. Decide which of these restaurants really stand out and book a table today!

Having Signature GCFB beers brewed on site certainly makes Granite City Food & Brewery stand out, but it really doesn’t hurt that they also provide some of the best brunch in Sioux Falls. Guests enjoy their meals in a relaxing and minimalist environment, but large windows to the back also provide a first-hand view of the beer brewing process in action. The beers, however, aren’t the reason the eatery calls itself Home of the Lawless Brunch. Spicy Bloody Marys, a Donut Creation Station, weekly chef specials and a fully customizable menu mean patrons never have to play by the rules.

Passersby will often witness a morning delivery heading into Shahi Palace that signifies their daily shipment of market fresh ingredients. The string lighting around the HVAC ducts, artfully folded napkins on the tables, and fresh linen tabletops also suggest a staff and management team that go the extra mile for their guests. While there’s no dedicated menu for such, the eatery still has some of the finest brunch options in Sioux Falls. These include butter chicken, vegetable samosas, fish pakora and several soup selections. There may not be any mimosas, but everyone should try the mango lassi.

Guests come from miles around to enjoy the traditional Italian cuisine and more at Spezia, but those seeking the best brunch in Sioux Falls should make a special trip every Sunday. From 9 am to 2 pm, guests can take their pick along a buffet-style spread of pastries, desserts and more. The chefs prepare a variety of offerings, and this has been known to include blackberry agrodolce salmon, rosemary beef roast and pesto margherita chicken. Guests can enjoy the authentic Old-World setting – complete with vibrant art – while trying their hand at the bottomless mimosas.

A short drive from the bulk of options for brunch in Sioux Falls sits the Grand Falls Casino and Golf Resort. Situated inside between The Golf Shop and Robert's Buffet rests Ruthie’s Steak and Seafood. Their menu offers delicious options like crab cakes, shrimp cocktails, charred beet salads and Chilean sea bass. The only issue is that these delicacies can only be enjoyed during dinner hours. Those who want a snack before Ruthie's opens their door can partake in the Champagne Brunch at Robert’s Buffet earlier in the day.

Framed artwork lines the walls at the Original Pancake House, and guests enjoy their meals under high-end lighting. These create an atmosphere that would be welcome at any fancy steakhouse, but the ‘Either you love bacon, or you’re wrong’ sign combined with the little-old chef lady statue brings guests back down to earth. Its first location sprouted up in 1953 in Oregon, but upon their arrival to South Dakota, they started offering some of the best brunch in Sioux Falls. Menu options include huevos rancheros, eggs Florentine, a delicious breakfast sandwich, the chorizo sampler and the aptly named Everybody's Favorite.

Anyone looking for a combination of fine dining and brunch in Sioux Falls has to check out Minerva’s. Its Paramount Cocktails & Food lounge has live entertainment nearly every weekend, and the salad bar has actually won awards.

Thanks to its location in the Hilton Garden Inn, CRAVE has all the fancy artwork, unique lighting and high-end décor one would expect from such a brand. Those with dietary restrictions will love the gluten-sensitive menu, but everyone gets enjoyment when some of the best brunch in Sioux Falls is available. Guest favorites include the N'Awlins Hash, caprese flatbread, Crave American and the crab & shrimp cake Benedict. Of course, it’s also hard to ignore the drink menu that features well over 100 options.

The giant wooden wine rack, industrial overhead lighting and unique wall clock that features wine glasses instead of numbers all make 22TEN stand out in the décor department. Their menu is described as 'American Eclectic,' and they focus on artisan and hand-crafted offerings. The eatery manages to land on most brunch in Sioux Falls lists – even without a devoted brunch menu – thanks to cuisine that includes shrimp & grits, chicken bacon flatbread, duck sliders and chicken salad. Those aiming for a lighter meal should instead try out the Ray-Fin salad.

The storefront of Crawford’s Bar & Grill blends in well with other businesses along Phillips Avenue, but this all changes when guests walk through the door. Seating fit for a king, paintings from antiquity, beaded chandeliers and frequent live music create an ambiance that would make anyone feel like royalty. Most people don’t think brunch in Sioux Falls when they consider this eatery, but that’s only because the restaurant doesn’t typically open until 3 pm. Those who show up for Sunday brunch, though, get to enjoy French toast, berry oatmeal, the 214 Breakfast or even create their own three-egg omelet.

The backlit sign and extravagant hostess stand at Morrie’s Steakhouse is just a small signal of things to come. Once seated, guests enjoy their meals surrounded by elegance that reaches from the luxury lighting to the stylish doorways throughout. It’s important to note that this isn’t the typical brunch in Sioux Falls. In fact, they only open later in the day. With menu options like loaded hash browns, custard crepes, French onion soup and the burrata heirloom tomato salad, though, guests who like a little taste of brunch throughout the day will do well here.

Founded in 1974, the Roll’n Pin Café & Grill has long been a destination for those seeking brunch in Sioux Falls. The tan building with the large rolling pin design are hard to miss from the road, but this is only a small taste of how seriously they take their name. When guests walk in, they’re met with a floor-to-ceiling wall of rolling pins. They switched to a limited menu in 2018, but guests still have a full buffet from 7 am to 11 am. Offerings include cheesy hash brown casserole, biscuits and gravy, waffles, crepes and a variety of delicious breakfast meats.

No list of options for brunch in Sioux Falls would be complete without mentioning Cracker Barrel Old Country Store. It’s the quintessential eatery for down-home breakfast, brunch, lunch and dinner. All the décor calls back to a much simpler time, and guests love stopping at the country store on their way out. Before getting to that point, though, everyone should enjoy the Sunrise Sampler, Smokehouse Breakfast, Uncle Herschel's Favorite or Momma's Pancake Breakfast. This is only a small selection of what’s offered at this culinary institution, and that’s why patrons simply can’t get enough of it.

While it might not be on most visitors’ radar for the best brunch in Sioux Falls, Red Lobster manages to impress with its early dining specials. Guests can get their energy for the day with a Dragon Power Bowl or Summer Power Bowl, but many also enjoy classics like southwest tacos, wood-grilled shrimp and even a grilled shrimp salad. The easily recognizable red building can be quickly spotted from West 41st Street, but many guests skip across the street from Empire Casino after winning big.

As one of the restaurants that took part in the culinary influx of the downtown area, Parker’s Bistro has built a great reputation since its opening in 2009. The historic interior has been left intact, and décor such as vintage paintings combines with live music to create an atmosphere unlike any other. They also strive to use locally sourced organic ingredients. Like some other eateries mentioned here, though, Parker’s doesn’t open until typical brunch hours are over. Once it does, though, guests enjoy the Mediterranean tapas plate, crab egg roll, sea scallops, 'Buddah' Bowl and other options unique to this restaurant.

While it certainly prides itself on some of the most unique brunch in Sioux Falls, Turks & Caicos Cabana Grille works hard to introduce guests to far off lands. The fancy dining sets and large-vane ceiling fans give off the typical upscale dining vibe, but the menu teleports patrons directly to Thailand, Jamaica, Hawaii or anywhere along coastal America. Brunch is only served on Sunday, but it’s well worth the wait. Menu items include breakfast tacos, citrus avocado toast, Caribbean nachos and the popular Cabana Burger.
