About Crawford Cookshop

Crawford Cookshop welcomes guests for Chef Scott Crawford’s delicious “Americana” style cooking celebrating the seasons and time-honored dishes from a wood grill. Located in a restored, historic building from 1904 in the heart of Clayton’s charming downtown, guests will discover American classics prepared by Chef Scott Crawford and his team – crispy catfish sandwiches, saucy ribs, big seasonal salads, hearty entrees and comforting desserts served alongside delicious wines, cocktail favorites and local beer.

Cookshop was designed for guests on all occasions – enjoying weeknights with family, date nights on the weekend and groups of all sizes, in all seasons. With a wide range of seating options indoors – and out on the heated, covered patio with seating surrounding the fireplace – we look forward to welcoming you!
