Parker's Bistro is a quaint restaurant located in downtown Sioux Falls. Opened in September of '09, Parker's has enjoyed being an important addition to the downtown experience. Our mission is to provide excellent food quality paired with exceptional drink and service. Parker's strives to utilize local organic ingredients with fresh fish flown in twice a week for the very popular weekly fish special. In addition, Parker's has an extensive wine and beer list as well as a full bar.

Here at Parker's, we believe in the total experience and each detail that goes into the experience.

As always, our entire experience was fantastic. It was our first time being served by Mercedes. She was so knowledgeable about the entire menu, wine list, and even suggested our dessert. Once again, I very highly recommend dining at Parker's!

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.

About the restaurant
We’ve always believed that dining should be a social occasion, a time when friends, family, and coworkers can enjoy great conversation over a great meal.

We believe in supporting our local artisans and staying connected to our Black Hills community. At a time when the area is growing and expanding, we are striving to keep the flavor of the region alive.

Inspired by the history of this area, both the aesthetics of the building and the diversity of the menu are true to our local roots, something no nation-wide franchise can duplicate. Certainly, there are other steakhouses out there, but none like ours.

From the first design to the actual construction, we have focused on creating a balance between upscale dining and a casual atmosphere-crafting a chic steakhouse where the kids are welcome too.

The rest is easy-buy the very best meat possible and prepare it correctly.

Great steak and walleye fingers. Wedge salad with bacon was a nice upgrade. The bacon wrapped asparagus was wonderful!

Snitches is a nice surprise in the land of beef, beef, and more beef! The menu is varied; I thoroughly enjoyed the scallops and house-created pasta with a lovely salad. In terms of ambiance, the restaurant is small but intimate. Highly recommend if you’re in Deadwood and can’t handle one more steak!
