“A slightly upscale bar and grill in the heart of Sioux Falls”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

We stopped in to Crawford's for lunch and a drink while visiting Sioux Falls. The prices are a bit more than you might find at other local spots but we wanted a nice cocktail and this place seemed inviting. The decor is over the top but the place is comfy. We were two of only a few patrons in the mid afternoon but we were immediately greeted and shown a seat. The drinks were very tasty and expertly prepared by the friendly bartender. The lunch menu was a cross section of standard cafe fair with a few featured sandwiches, burgers and flat bread pizzas. We each had a sandwich - served with a mountain of fries these were a decent value for around 10 bucks. The Prime Rib Dip was simple yet satisfying. The Havana sandwich was piled high with pork and while the grilled bread was a bit greasy - I couldn't stop eating every last bite. We look forward to visiting again the next time we are in Sioux Falls.

“Disappointing lunch”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2013

My friend and I decided to grab lunch at Crawford's. The hostess sat us outside which was great because of the wonderful weather. We waited at least ten minutes for a waitress. Finally, we asked the hostess for a waitress. Upon appearing, the waitress explained that when people seat themselves the wait staff doesn't know you are there. We didn't seat ourselves! We both ordered the special - a half caprese sandwich and soup or salad. The sandwich was serves warm. The basil pesto was tasty as were the tomatoes unfortunately there was very little cheese. So in essence we were served a tomato pesto sandwich. The salad was fine but not good enough to make up for a cheese less caprese sandwich.

“Average food for a high price”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2013 via mobile

The food on our recent visit was average at best. My friend though could only eat one bite of hers as her salmon had an unpleasant taste. The server would not do anything to resolve the issue. I had steak and shrimp which were average and had no seasoning. For the price, I would not return.

“Great lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013

I enjoyed a quick, tasty lunch here while on business downtown. I loved the fish tacos. The fish was grilled not fried, and perfectly seasoned. Many of their dinner menu items are available at lunch, with lunchtime pricing.

“Really”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2013

We were excited to go to Crawfords. Really unhappy in both service and the food. Server was slow. Our steaks were a little over done and had no flavor. Potatoes were OK and broccoli was plain. We got no bread with the meal. Been to lots of great places and getting a basket of great homemade bread was always included. They had live music... too loud to carry on a conversation.Would be a great place to go for drinks and apps!
