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 lunch & dinner menus, full bar, 58" plasma tv's and fireplace.

The food was great. We have salmon and a ribeye with mashed potatoes. The service was bad. Took forever to order a drink at our table, never got a water like we asked for. The waiter never came back to check on us. Id go again in hopes to have better service.

Our experience was awesome! It was busy so of course the noise level was a little bit loud but not bad. We had not been there for a while and now we wonder why as our food and service was outstanding! Definitely recommend

Our server Kris Ann?? was wonderful and our food was excellent. Our 2nd time visiting. Our first time was years ago and the service and the food was just awful.
So, it was nice to have a very delicious meal at Crawfords. Thank you Ode Boys.

Spinach artichoke appetizer was fantastic.
Tomato crab bisque was tasty with plenty of crab meat.
Main entree was walleye and arrived at table lukewarm.
Waitress was busy schmoozing table of 8 for better tip and totally ignored my plate pushed out to edge of table to reheat. Finally checked on us 10 minutes later and my wife was already finished with her dinner. Restaurant comped our dinner but the experience was not good

Just a very cool atmosphere and vibe. Excellent food and great service from a friendly staff. Our server in particular was outstanding. We were in town for a concert and wanted a nice meal in a unique setting and Crawford’s certainly answered the call. Thank You!

The food was good and different. My cocktail was disappointing. I always order the same drink when I go out so that was a bummer. We haven't been here in a while. I would have liked the menu to have a few more options. Service was great. Food was good but not great like in the past.

We had good service but the food was horrible. Even a plain ceasar salad the dressing was gross. One salad tasted like it wasn’t washed, the crab and shrimp linguine had no flavor at all. The honey roasted carrots weren’t cooked all the way through. The new menu is not good or worth the price!

Atmosphere is very inviting, rustic and warm. Server was fantastic (Krissanne sp?) she welcomed us and answered all of the questions we had regarding wines and menu items with complete confidence and offered fun historical tidbits about the building. She was very pleasant and made sure we had everything we needed without being too intrusive. Food was phenomenal, husband said this is the best steak he has been served at a restaurant since moving to SF nearly 3 years ago. The meatloaf was absolutely perfect, bruschetta was light and delicious, and the raspberry donut cheesecake was like a dream! Already planning our next night back!

Food was way overpriced. $50 for a steak with no sides, just a slab of meat. Try adding Bread, salad, and potato or vegetable. Added a $15 enhancement Stuffed mushrooms, they were cold on inside didn't taste fresh. My wife Walleye was bland and also over priced. Bartender was extremely slow. Was looking for a relaxing night out and was very disappointed
