REVIEWS OF Craft Italian American Fusion IN South Dakota

Sylvia Wolters

Excellent food and service. Reasonably priced. Not your everyday then you all were excellent choices at our table.

Brian Beverage

Good food and good service.

Caleb Tschetter

Great service, great atmosphere, and a friendly staff. Our server was training at the time so drinks refills were a little slow. Overall, great experience, will be back.

Mark Beithon

My wife and I stopped for dinner Friday evening. We live in Minneapolis and were in Brookings on a personal family matter, and didn't know where to go for dinner and drove down the street from our motel and found Craft. Service by Derik was great! The wine and the food were exceptional! We go out to eat in the Twin Cities often and this place would be one of our favorites if it was there, plus the prices are lower than we are used to. ☺. Thank you!!!

Teri Scott

We had a very good server, the food was delicious, the cheesecake was the best we have ever eaten! Definitely going back the next time we are in Brookings. I have another favorite restaurant.

Jeanette Masloski

Nice place. Friendly staff. Gluten free meals.

Alan Haarstad

Had a fantastic time at Craft! Great service and a great atmosphere. The black and white Alfredo is a must. In addition they have a bunch of great sandwiches and other specials. Check it out!!

Tonya Hogan

First off, they charge gratuity then ask if u want to leave a tip. Next, the waitress was NOT hospitable. Altho the food wasn't bad it was MEDIOCRE at BEST. I had the crab Benedict and the crab cake was no bigger than a silver dollar and full of filler. The kids sliders we're good but not great. Chislic was overcooked and sweet. However, the burgers we're good and large. Their fries were crispy and hot. Nevertheless, will not be going back.

Cindy Docter

Fun atmosphere...great menu....delightful experience!


First time was on Valentine's I thought food was really good went today on my birthday had great food steaks was amazing I will be coming back more try other things so far y'all doing a great job

B. P.

Stopped by durring a business trip. Food was ok...but awesome sauce cocktails at the bar and they'll customize it to your liking. Definitely the best bartending in Brookings. Emily was my bartender this night.

Ewald Van Der Helm

Dark inside of the restaurant. Good attention from waitress who accommodated my colleque s need for vegan food. The vegan option in the menu was unfortunately not vegan but vegetarian as it had cheese. It was presented without cheese thanks to the intervention of the waitress . Good service. I had a vegetarian advocado sandwich with a side salad. The salad was the best part of my meal. The sandwich was too heavy and I did not enjoy it at all. Too greasy and too much filling of an unknown soft substance. The sandwich was toasted but I suspected on a meat grill. Not good for a vegetarian service.

Danie R.

Worth the price, great food!

John Weise

Went for the buffet and the food was the same as a cheaper place to eat with a very expensive price

Michelle Kessel

We had a wedding rehearsal supper there. We ordered off the menu. Food was great, service was fantastic!

Timothy Ellis

Great food, slow service.

Robert Anderson

Horrible!! Service was slow and food was burnt, and cold. Would not recommend.

Patty Ramsey

Excellent food and service. Best restaurant in Brookings SD.

Aiden Petersen

I liked the food and it was very great service I will come here again.

whitestargamer ___

Horrible food and terrible service

jason hungerford

Good food, little pricey

Sam Gunderson

First visit, wonderful Great food, many items on the menu I will go back and try.

Clark Sowers

Best chicken fried steak and mixed vegetables ever.

Gerry Rounds

Sunday Buffet was delicious. Great service. Nice atmosphere.

Jeff Ladegaard

Food was good, very nicely plated and looked great. Atmosphere was quiet even with people only feet away at the bar. Service was sub par at best for a seemingly upscale restaurant. Our server was probably at our table for a minute total the whole time we were there, and we had to ask for refills even with three obviously empty glasses on the edge of the table, feet from the bar and servers and management. Food prices were definitely on the high end for the overall quality. Not impressed overall because of the lack of quality service.

Philip Coccari

Absolutely delicious food at a great price just love the place!

Steve T

Consistently good and nice atmosphere. The pasta was tasty and they did not drench it in sauce

Rachel G.

Food was pretty decent but service could be desired - a lot of little things just got missed and we barely saw our waiter.

Vicente Castro

Very good place

Trevor Weinrich

It's a pretty sad meal when the best tasting part was the vegetables on the side.

Steve Meland

Nice place to have a relaxing dinner and the lunch prices are a good deal

Shannon Brady

Probably the best food I've ever had! My new favorite! Service was awesome to top it off!

Al Lindeman

Great food.

Benji Inniger

A little slow, but delishious and unique food.

Kristin A

Went in and it was not very full. Seated right away but waited 5 minutes for menus...not sure how many they have but clearly not enough as all the booths next to us were empty. Waited another 15 minutes no one came to take our order. We left. I suggest they order some menus, and do a better job staffing. I could totally understand the wait if it had been busy but it was not.

George Angelos

Wonderful restaurant with very simple, pure Italian inspired were more than restless but the staff waited on them and on us like the best of all champs!!! I would without hesitation or reservation recommend this place for even the most seasoned gourmand! Chislic was the best I have had locally and the Bruschetta was perfection! So much on the menu seemed appealing! Our most scrupulous and discerning eater, a 6 yr old who knows how a good meatball should taste, ordered THIRDS!!! Creme Brûlée was the best I have ever had...again it is a lot to say when you can reward a restaurant for its food and service when your party is a family of six with four unruly kiddos and you are at your wits very end!Gem in South Dakota! A return visit is definitely on the horizon!

Jason Welsh

Top 20 filets I’ve had in my life, rest of the food was very good, drinks as well. Nice work!/////2nd night totally different mediocre steak apps and drinks. Hit and miss I guess.

Larry Leigh

Generally good, food tends to be hit or miss... Like tonight... We repeat go for weekly date night.... Dishes are obviously prepaired from "scratch" but tend to vary, by assumed cook, by degrees of success... Tonight with de-construction was "interesting".....


Great food, and free cheesecake for the birthday girl!

Robert Bogott

A bit more upscale. Pleasant wait staff and excellent food offerings. Our party ate here four nights in a row! Sirloin steak, pasta, chicken, pork chops, fresh garden salads were all great. Recommended.

Joseph Bonomo

Was in from out of town on business in Clear Lake but staying in Brookings. Had a good burger, nice selection of beers, glad to see that the change from Bravos to Craft didn't lose a step

Corey Morrow

Great food, one of Brookings, S.D. hidden gems.

Dominic Mickelson

Good food, drinks, and service. And nice to be away from the crowd at Brookings art festival. Our annual stop at Craft Fusion always a winner.


More misses than hits. There is no consistency. There are better and less expensive locally owned options in town.

Aaron Sorenson

Good food and service.

Allen Jones

I like the bar area - a nice feel. Good selection of craft beer.

roger mckillip

Awesome food and service

Bri Solko

Quite over priced for the atmosphere. Also noisy. Burger was really over cooked. Employees were real friendly and nice.

Sara Bakken

Sunday brunch is great!

Kare Swank

Great Food, Great Service. Will stop again .

Krista Benson

The food is good. I appreciate the unique menu with all the chain restaurants around. The price is also good. The only thing I would recommend to change is to have more attentive welcoming staff. We've been in several different times and each time it's been difficult to get drink refills and our food has taken a long time to finish.

Jared Baszler

Party of 8 for New Years Eve and the food was great for all of us

Jessica Fyffe

We had a huge party and our waiter was so nice. Food was great too.

Jacki Gruetzmacher

Very nice place to eat. Nice people good service.

Penny Eliason

Yum! Awesome food.

Taylor Byrnes

Was looking for a place with vegetarian options and was happy to find Craft has a very yummy veggie burger. House-made, no Bova etc., very good, would absolutely recommend.

Rawson Yost

Really good food and service

Amanda Ruiz

Wonderful food and great atmosphere!

Madisen Swift

Food was amazing! It took a bit of time (new business and take time for perfection) but it was completely worth the wait. You could tell the chef (owner) really puts his heart and soul into the food, no matter what you order it will be fabulous.

casey simmons

Way over priced!! Better of going to McDonald's

Tiffany Jones

Went on a Friday evening after 8pm and just a few tables were taken. The decor and atmosphere are nice - dark wood, funky lighting. Our server was very friendly and efficient, but could not answer any questions about the food! And didn't seek help from other staff, so that was a bit awkward. Pasta was tasty, cooked al dente, but jambalaya had thick tomato sauce and raw veg - seemed to need longer cooking overall. Dessert (almond/coconut cake) was creative but overly sweet like eating a block of sugar. Prices are high for what you get, but might give it another try.

Mike Rosse

Had a great meal there . You will like it.

Ron Wood

I thought it was great food!! I had the deconstructed chicken cord on blue. Great flavor and awesome portion size too!! Not very kid friendly though as far as better kids food selections go. Nice atmosphere, I would go back if I was ever through Brookings again for a meal.

Laura Lloyd-Smith

Dinner here tonight with college aged son. A lovely place! Timely service, good menu selections and superior service. Will definitely be back when in town.

Laura Ellison

The best Italian we have ever had a little spendy but just awesome food service and atmosphere

Jesse Schmidt

Good food

Shirley Neville

Traveling through Brookings and decided to try Craft for lunch. It was excellent!! My husband who never comments about food absolutely raved about his Smokehouse Pasta dish, which was the special. Great service and friendly staff. Lucky Brookings!!

Sydney Bassing

Pasta is my favorite here but all the food is good. Wait time for food is a little longer than other places I've been to

Naomi Stout

Waiter was great! We had a party if 16 and he was very attentive and polite. The food was great and plenty if it.

Miss Streets

Have only had one bad experience in the last two years, otherwise exceptional every time!

Jason Bereded

There is a wait for the food, but it is completely worth it! Try the artichoke spinach dip for an appetizer, it's crazy good

Andrew Waterman

Their lunch menu is one of the best in town! Try The Rachel, it is the best I have ever had.

Sue Musch

Food was delicious and server was very gracious. Can't wait to return for another great meal.


When we got there we were seated right away, we ordered drinks and our waitress came back a while later to tell us they are out of bud light. Then we order our food which the waitress went to put our order in and she came back they were out of pork chops and wild rice as well ? This was a Saturday night at 6 pm and I thought to myself how are they out of everything? In the end the food was good and our waitress but they must of been short handed it took forever to get drinks we never got water and they were out of everything

Lance Bennett

What a great place to eat in Brookings. If you havent taken the time you really should. Such a gem in this wonderful town.

Karin Burdick

Great atmosphere for Ladies Night on Wednesdays!

Jonnie Fry

Everything was good. We had everything from appetizer to dessert. My husband said his lamb burger was delicious & my raspberry chicken salad was good. We also enjoyed the cheesecake & got had all 4 drizzles on it. Very delicious!

David Schranck

Just visiting Brookings for the day and didn't want a chain restaurant. They have a nice mix of Italian and American fare. We both had pasta dishes that were fantastic. One was a Fettuccine with a mix of cheeses and cream sauce. The other was a cheese ravioli with Portobello mushrooms and grilled chicken in a marsala sauce.

Kollin Volkert

Decent food, the layout and theme is beautiful. Great place for a date night

Vaughan Hennen

My mom and I had an amazing Saturday lunch here! I ordered the dry aged steak - it was stellar! And the mashed potatoes!! #perfection My mom had the lunch portion of Spagetti and Meat Balls. She loved every bite and loved the portion of food. 10/10 will definitely be back again!

Misty Moser

Good food cooked perfect portions could have been a little bigger. Great service love the atmosphere.

Melinda Miller

Fresh food very tasty. Great service too.

Steve Chipps

Great good food and service. Black and white Alfredo was awesome. A keeper for Brookings

Janet Stone

From the time we arrived to time to leave was over two hours. Service was very very slow, very long wait for our food and when it arrived was cold, mix up on soups and salads. Not a very good night

Amy Sylvestre

Good food, nice atmosphere. On the pricier side for Brookings.

emily secrest

All-you-can-eat brunch buffet - $15, pretty decent price, but a bit limited for a vegetarian. I'd say if you are passing through Brookings and need a nice sit-down Sunday brunch with options (say, for instance, parents coming to town for a visit), this is a good bet that there's something for most people at your table. I'm not sure if this selection is a regular thing, but today's pans had scrambled eggs, biscuits and gravy, eggs benedict, potato cubes (country potatoes?), bacon, ham, buttered corn, green beans, cinnamon bread pudding, pesto penne w/ roast veggies, grilled chicken strips, mixed fruit/melon, yogurt, and scones. Bottomless mimosas for an extra $10, but I didn't spring for that (wasn't planning on drinking). Overall seemed like basic food classed up a bit, but like I said, not much breakfast foods for a vegetarian. Eggs were a bit over-cooked, potatoes under-seasoned, strange bowls for yogurt (and no spoons unless requested); on the other hand, bread pudding was quite yummy (almost like raw cinnamon bun dough), as was the corn (a rather surprising addition to breakfast), and I was told that the benedict was decent too. I think it was a good deal after the inclusion of a coupon (half off the second person's brunch price). I think their normal menu has better flavors though.

zog harms

Very attentive service. Food has always been good. Probably the best cheesecake I've ever had. Noticed two outlets in our booth, we could have charged our phones.

Chris Olson

Cozy, casual Italian food restaurant. Great wine selection. Lamd caprese burger was fantastic. Great service.

Denise Symens

Excellent food, great decor not expensive at all especially for food that doesn't come from a fast food restaurant! My pasta was incredible, and my husband's seafood Poorboy was top notch.

Lisa Zvorak

Very good food and atmosphere

Shireen Delfanian

This is one of our favorite places to come eat! Very friendly staff, reasonably priced menu and DELICIOUS food!!

Tywan Ramsey

The best,fanciest, hole in the wall Brookings has to offer.

Silver Falcon

AMAZING! I love you going there on special date nights. Food is amazing for the price you pay. And the wait staff is amazing as well! Can't wait til another date night❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤

Ted Elverson

Food was delicious!

Clint Brown

The food is phenomenal. Service was great. It’s nice to have a place that focuses on top notch flavors. Hats off to the Chefs!

cotton runggay

Food was good a little spendy, has a full bar, took about 30 minutes for burger and pasta, edgy and hip

Tasiyagnunpa Barondeau

Their from scratch Alfredo sauce is a must! Love this place. Don't let them sit you too close to the kitchen door, though, (in the bar area) or you might hear more than you would like about how the staff's day is going.

William Miller

Great food and atmosphere!

Oscar Ruiz

Great food and good service. The marinara dipping sauce served with the mozzarella sticks was very good so was the shrimp scampi fettuccine.

Fereidoon Delfanian

Excellent food and great service!

Travis Schmieg

Expensive and not that good. Service was great though. Small menu.

OurOldNumber OurOldGroup

Outstanding. Interesting and varied choices on the menu. Great atmosphere. And the service was perfect. It's always fun to find spots like Craft in places you might least expect. Well worth a stop in Brookings. We'll do it again.

Joanne Hasche

A friend and I have had lunch here several times. Each meal has been delicious. French Dip Sandwich - 5 star, Pastas - 5 star. Service is exceptional. I am happy Brookings has a new place to eat with original dishes.

Bob Thompson

Good food and atmosphere, enjoyable dining

Rodrigo Lima

One hour just to make the order. Terrible service. And the check came with 18% tip already included!

Craig Jorgensen

Good food, not amazing. A little pricey for what you get. One of the best bartender experiences in Brookings.

Collins Bugingo

Liked your customer care guys. The meals are point on

David Howard

Jesse did another fantastic job. Our meal was great along with the service.

Bikram Kumar Das

Good food, great service and best hospitality!

Lisa Kraft-Kujawa

Very good with some unique selections. Really liked my pear margarita.

Two Herbs

the food is very good, but prices are high.

Jolene Schwartz

Awesome place!!!

Nancy Swenson

Food is good, but we've had mediocre service the last few times we've gone. Yesterday our server brought us our checks and didn't come back for at least 10 minutes because she and another employee were busy chatting.

Angela Hastings

Excellent food and music. Little slow, due to being short-staffed, but otherwise stellar. Would highly recommend.

Rich Widman

Great food, great atmosphere, great service. Just a little too expensive.

Raj Chaudhari

Service was great, food was fabulous. Best I have had in Brookings. If you have an opportunity to eat out while you are in Brookings, or make it a destination dinner out, this restaurant will not disappoint.


This was my first visit and I enjoyed the food. We had the spin/artichoke dip with tortilla chips. It was a generous portion for two people. I also had the blackened chicken sandwich with fries. The sandwich had a nice amount of heat without being too spicy. Want to try several other items so I will absolutely return.
