Date Ideas for Valentine's Day

Are you looking for something to do to celebrate Valentine’s Day with your significant other? Look no further because we have put together a few ideas for dinner, drinks or dessert, and an activity, so you can pick one of each to build the perfect evening.


Morrie's Steakhouse

Enjoy a nice dinner at this high-end steakhouse. Start off with an appetizer like their Smoked Bacon Slab then move onto one of their many delicious cuts of steak or go with the salmon if seafood is more your style.

Parker's Bistro

Savor the flavors at Parker’s Bistro with dishes such as their Lobster Mac and Cheese, Wagyu Beef, or Grilled Cauliflower. This fine dine eatery has been a mainstay in downtown Sioux Falls for many years. Come see why.

Crawford's Bar & Grill

Let your eyes wander among the beautiful décor at Crawford’s while you transcend your taste buds. You can’t go wrong with their Colorado Lamb Chop or Parmesan Walleye here. Or get yourself a steak and pair it with one of their signature sides such as broccolini or mushroom risotto.

Drinks / Dessert

The Treasury

Enjoy a liquid dessert at The Treasury with one of their tasty cocktail concoctions. You will love the swanky atmosphere just as much as the drinks. Sip on an old fashioned or try one of the many other signature cocktails.

CH Patisserie

CH Patisserie has become a foodie staple in Sioux Falls for people of all ages. Award winning chef and owner, Chris Hanmer, has made a name for himself with his pastries and desserts. Try one of the many different French macaron flavors like vanilla bean, pistachio, Puppy Chow, chocolate caramel pretzel, and many more.

Stensland Family Farms

Ice cream is the name of the game here. Stensland Family Farms creates their own ice cream in signature flavors such as Heavenly Holstein, Peanut Butter Blunder, and Udder Me Mint Chip just to name a few. Tip: get yourself one of their homemade waffle cones with your ice cream. You won’t regret it at all.


State Theatre

Catch a flick in the completely renovated State Theatre in downtown Sioux Falls. Their reclining chairs will have you in a state of total comfort and relaxation. The State Theatre does not typically show movies on Mondays, so with Valentine’s Day falling on a Monday this year you will want to push this to the end of the week or weekend.

JJ's Axes & Ales

Perhaps axe throwing is a new activity for you. If so, no need to worry. The staff at JJ’s Axes & Ales will give you a quick training of how to hit the target safely and effectively. Axe throwing is a fun activity that can be enjoyed by anyone.

EightyOne Arcade Bar

Stop into EightyOne Arcade Bar in downtown Sioux Falls to end your night where you can play some classic arcade games such as Pac-Man, several different pinball machines, and many more games both new and old. You can even enjoy a beer while you compete against one other.
