Walleye or Pheasant in Sioux Falls?

Okay, so I am bringing my California born and raised bride back for a family reunion and she wants to experience true South Dakota meals........which to me means walleye, pheasant and buffalo burgers...............but am drawing a balnk on where to find any of these in the Sioux Falls area. Suggestions? I am looking more for best quality vs most food!

    1. The Phillips Avenue Diner has a Walleye Strips Basket which includes Canadian walleye, lemon tartar, french fries and garlic Texas toast. They are located downtown. Possibly Minerva's downtown has pheasant and buffalo burgers.

        While it is an Italian restaurant, Spezia has a few local options and the food is usually satisfying and tasty. http://www.speziarestaurant.com/sioux...
        They have an asiago crusted walleye that looks good, and if you're there when they have the seasonal heirloom tomato menu the choices on that were fantastic last year. Truly a celebation of in season ripe tomatos.
