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.

Very disappointing night. Trying to celebrate a birthday with family and was horribly disappointed. The food was average, but the service was what was so disappointing. The waiter was disinterested in us (a party of 11), didn’t deliver drinks/food to the right person who ordered, brought food late, didn’t ask for refills, water, more drinks, etc. I could go on with details but overall, it was expensive and not a place I could recommend at this point. We have been there in the past and it has been good, but tonight was awful. I won’t go back anytime soon, which I’m sorry to say. They need to train wait staff and management to handle large groups.

Our server Natija was excellent. Good recommendations. Quality and presentation of food were excellent. The Wedge Salad was excellent. The Filet was so tender you could cut it with a fork. Because of price this is a special occasion restaurant, but well worth it.

Overall good experience, service was slightly slower than anticipated. Ambiance was good, slightly over the top eclectic with the rustic contemporary theme.

A family visit to Sioux Falls with not one, but two dining experiences at Crawford’s. The food is outstanding! 5 of us out of towners were surprised and delighted. Collectively we have dined at some of the finest restaurants in the world and Crawford’s definitely did not disappoint.
The pork chop was the best I’ve ever tasted! The walleye, out of this world! The large spears of asparagus were tender, flavorful and not stringy even to the stems.

This is the first time I've eaten at Crawford's. The decor is unique - think speak-easy meets art deco. Steaks were amazing, good drinks, menu has a bit of everything, service was friendly and timely.... the ONLY big disappointment was the Charcuterie Board appetizer. I am BIG on charcuterie and Crawford's just didn't meet expectations. The selection of cheeses & crackers was generic & mundane and I've never, ever had one with orange slices and hard boiled eggs. I could have brought my own cheeses & box crackers and made a better one. What about apples, grapes, dried apricot,....? I just expected more for an upscale restaurant. Other than that - it was a lovely dinner.

The food was excellent.
The service....absolutely the worst I've ever experienced.
I made a reservation. This was Mother's day.
We were sat at the 2 person table directly in front of the balcony, which also directly in front of a server station where they stored glasses and high chairs. Also, was about 5 feet from a coed bathroom.
The server came to the table and asked for drinks or appetizers, and asked if we wanted bread now or with dinner. We ordered drinks, no appetizers, and said sure on the bread.
Drinks came, and one of the glasses was broken all the way through. Honestly not sure how it was still intact. I get it, it happens. The server walked past us 3 times before I finally said "excuse me, can he get a new glass?" Finally came back with a new glass.
Various servers grabbing things and putting things back behind me, the whole time.
Then, apparently the main floor bathroom broke, and there was a line of people right beside our table waiting to get into the bathroom.
There were at least 3 tables on this floor that was open, and we definitely should have been offered a new table.
We weren't....and the stench from the bathroom was absolutely disgusting.
Food was excellent, but the atmosphere and service definitely didn't justify the price. Never seen the bread lol. Seen our server when we ordered, got the new glass, and when we were asked if we wanted dessert, and at that point we just wanted the check. Again, the bathroom deal was absolutely disgusting.
So, if you do eat there, and they sit you on the 2nd floor, refuse the 2 person table in front of the balcony. I would also try to avoid the red head server.

Food, service and atmosphere was incredible!
Made reservations for my husband and I on our 5 year anniversary and they accomadated us to a lovely table and treated us with respect, patience and were on game with timing for food and drinks.

10 out of 10 recommended and will be going back if we get to visit Sioux falls.

Noted it was an anniversary. No one offered a happy anniversary.
Hostess took us to our table 20 steps ahead of us and minimal interaction except that our server will be will be with us shortly. Serving staff and hostess staff looked like they were hating life.
Disappointed in the value $$$$ of food without the friendly staff or welcoming atmosphere.
Will not be returning.

Wow we have sat at the bar and enjoyed ourselves so much in the past but decided to have a more formal date night and actually get a table. :) The food was so good and I would highly recommend the walleye dinner with the risotto. My husband wouldn't stay off my plate! The staff rocks it and we will be back VERY soon!!!

Great experience- the music was a mid nineties throw back, it was great. Environment was great, not too dark or too loud.

We had the shrimp cocktail & charcuterie board. My husband had the pork shanks - soooo good! I had the walleye, also delicious. Daughters had chicken strips (lol) and the burger- also delicious, it was huge.
