If you’re looking for a cozy, fine dining experience, I would recommend Crawford’s over Parker’s.
I’ll be by to get my hat!
Another fantastic dining experience! Sitting at the bar in Allyson's section is an absolute blast. Can't wait until we go back!!
I had the fish of the day which was halibut and it was delicious. My husband had the duck which was outstanding. Would choose Parker’s again when we visit.
Amazing. We love this place. I get the steak with 3 scallops. Best of both worlds.
Food was good but menu limited. Nice place with good service.
Nice atmosphere, extremely high prices for portions. Food was good but not good enough to warrant the prices.
We had a great meal with drinks on a Saturday night. It was a little warm in the restaurant, but it didn't take away from the overall experience. We've been to Parker's before and will return many more times in the future.
We selected Parker's for a birthday dinner before Les Miserables. They were busy as it was a Saturday night but our waitress checked with us often and paced the arrival of the courses so we enjoyed a leisurely dining experience. The featured cheese pate was aged cheddar and it did not disappoint. We shared a caesar salad with anchovies. Nicely prepared dressing and crispy greens. I ordered the pork chop and my beloved had the buffalo meatball pasta. Both were excellent choices. My chop was beautifully plated and served with an artfully arranged green salad with very pickled vegetables. My go to cocktail is a vodka Gimlet but often in the hands of an inexperienced mixologist it can be a very sad affair. In this case, it was perfectly balanced and delicious. If I had one quibble it would be that there was very little ice provided to keep the water cold. The waitress was very obliging and brought me several glasses of ice throughout the meal. As we had cake and champagne waiting at home for the birthday celebration, we passed on the desserts. We will definitely be returning. Thank you for a memorable evening.
Parker's never disappoints, especially as a pre-theatre destination. The staff is so knowledgeable and experienced. Delicious every time!
The Waygu beef was outstanding.
The food was amazing. The service was poor. Waitress was very disinterested is helping us, spent more time talking to people at the bar and playing with flowers. The did comp us a gift card due to poor service, I would go back again.
Great meal. Best Halibut prep we’d ever had (in a landlocked prairie state!). Very friendly and informative server. Excellent wine. Comfortable settung.
Great food and service as always. Lavender Martinis are great!
The food and service were what we always expect from Parker’s. The live music was a nice bonus.
So yummy. The halibut special is amazing. The service is always top notch.
Best meal I've had, while living in Sioux Falls the past 14 years!!
Nice variety in price points and limited selection menu, from small plates, soups and salads to entrees. Good wine choices. Service was welcoming and prompt. We enjoyed the Caesar salad with anchovies, Buffalo meatballs with fettuccine and Ratatouille. Not to be missed Southern Chocolate pudding. A great choice in Sioux Falls for fine dining.
Everything was delicious, a variety of good food choices and excellent, friendly service
Amazing! The food was great as well as the service. Loved the live mucus.
Excellent service, excellent food, excellent experience!

The food was hit and miss - the buffalo meat loaf was delicious and not your typical meat loaf with a twist of blue cheese. The Mediterranean tapas plate was devine with a medley of their hummus, olive tapenade, etc. Consider the ingredients and style of cooking before you get any of their specials and ask your server (ours was not as knowledgeable). And if you love coffee Americano, theirs would rival Starbucks but I was charged $3.00 per cup to my surprise. I would have appreciated it if the server told me this bit of information when I asked for a refill of the coffee! The restaurant is dark and noisy - if this is not your scene, then consider going someplace else.
Awesome food, awesome service. The best restaurant in Sioux Falls in my opinion.
This my favorite place to dine in Sioux Falls. It has great ambiance, the service is excellent and the food is amazing. The chef is creative and every plate is beautiful. My daughter is vegetarian and they always have options other than salad and pasta. That’s not easy to find in upscale dining in Sioux Falls.
The service, Food, and ambiance was great! They had live music that evening and he did an amazing job. It was the perfect place to celebrate our best friends birthday!
Parker’s is amazing. Food and wine were outstanding! Had fillet and polenta. Wow! Waiter was extremely knowledgeable on the wine list and made a fantastic recommendation. Btw... wasn’t the most expensive either 😄
The experience as always was excellent from the delicious food to the service not to mention the options for dessert and specialty drinks. . It is always a treat to come to spend an evening at Parkers. :)
It was a nice restaurant and our server was nice. Food was good too but I felt like everything is over priced. My small drink was $12 and crab dip with 8 small pita bread was $15. My bf ordered sausage dish (game of throne theme dish) and it came with one sausage and it was $10. When we were leaving, one of guy servers saw us leaving, but he didn’t even smile or say “thank you” or anything. It’s a small restaurant and he passed us but nothing. I mean it’s a good restaurant and probably it’s nice for a little fancy date night or something but I’m not sure if we would go back.
We were celebrating our first wedding anniversary and were tickled the evening’s featured dessert was Red Velvet Wedding Cake! Our meal was exquisitely presented and oh-so-delicious! The waiter was outstanding and attentive to each detail. As a result of Parker’s amazing service and meal, we enjoyed a perfect evening. Thank you.
Amazing food and drinks. Great staff and very cozy atmosphere
Food was very good and the atmosphere is unique.
The Wagu beef, egg rolls and hummas plate were all excellent. The music from Green and Snow was outstanding.
We don't frequent Parker's often, but after this visit, I'm left wondering why. The quality of the food and service remind us now that a return visit needs to be sooner than later. While the menu is smaller than most, it's offerings are prepared with utmost care and attention. The Bison Meatloaf, well it literally melted in my mouth. Other choices were consumed with delight by those whom I dined with. On past visits to Parker's (the last at least a year ago), they host live music. There is a balance between comfortable background and overbearing. On this particular evening, the tone was just right as a local musician of note played a soft, subtle saxophone. If you are looking for a unique dining experience in Sioux Falls with Chef inspired creations, look no further than Parker's.
Absolutely loved the experience. The tapas platter was the perfect opening and our pre-entree cocktails (a Manhattan for me and martinis for my companions were top notch. Our server was knowledgeable and enthusiastic without being intrusive or over-familiar. I consider myself a big eater but the size of the entrees were more than sufficient. I won't deny that the bill was bigger than I'm used to paying, but absolutely cannot say that it wasn't worth every penny. I strongly recommend it for a special night out.
Second fabulous meal here. Waygu steak was amazing. Mediterranean platter a must appetizer.
We've been to Parkers before and expected a good experience. Our wine glasses had water spots all over the base and bowl. Some of the potatoes in my side dish were black from probably not being fully covered in water. Just very disappointing for a nicer restaurant.
The food was out of this world. We are still talking about it. The ambiance was strange as it was March 8th and there was still Christmas decor up. Seems like a huge miss for such a place.
Great food!!! Next time we would ask to be seated at the last table in the main room/kitchen area. We were sitting across from the cooking area so there was a lot of activity going back and forth. Distracting. Otherwise it was very good.
Service was a little slow, food was exceptional and very creative although expensive! My trout was exceptional and hubby loved his wagyu beef filet with lardon.
