  • "Our food was great and the atmosphere was excellent. Busy place. Don't pass on the salad bar. Something for everyone."
    Dined on 8/21/2014
  • "We came across Minerva while driving into Sioux Falls after reading online reviews of the restaurant. It did not disappoint with the kids as well. The kids loved the salad bar! Our steaks were delicious. Would visit again if in Sioux Falls."
    Dined on 8/16/2014
  • "My Hamburger was not done, it needed to cook a little bit more."
    Dined on 8/14/2014
  • "We love Minerva's because the quality is alway guaranteed. Great atmosphere for a date yet laid back enough to go there with friends too! The service has always been wonderful."
    Dined on 8/9/2014
  • "Service was not perfect, but very good. One of the best steaks I have ever eaten!"
    Dined on 8/9/2014
  • "We did not have the best waitress this time. Not attentive, did not bring exactly what we asked for. Had to flag her down to get a drink, drinks came slow. This is not our normal experience at Minerva's"
    Dined on 8/5/2014
  • "Loved the environment. Great place. Was my first time and definitely going there again."
    Dined on 8/4/2014
  • "Our family of four (2 adults, 2 teenagers) found you via Trip Advisor in a recent trip to Sioux Falls. The interior was nicely appointed and a better choice. We sat at the bar, got a drink and headed to the table. Our meal was outstanding, the food plentiful and the experience pleasant. Our steaks melted in our mouth, the cajun chicken pasta was amazing, and the seafood risotto was very good. Our only negative was our waitress (Deb) was very unfriendly, didn't greet us at the table initally and just didn't seem at all pleasant- perhaps she was just having a bad day, but even our kids were put off with her poor performance. Other than that however, we would recommend Minerva's to our friends."
    Dined on 8/2/2014
  • "Minerva's is our very favorite restaurant and we celebrate most all of our special occasions there. When out-of-town company arrives, they also know that a meal at Minerva's will be on the menu during their stay."
    Dined on 7/21/2014
  • "Food is great, but you don't get much for the price. A serving of asparagus is four small stems. The petite oscar is long on the petite, and short on the steak. The house merlot was average, at best. Eighty bucks for dinner (without desert), and we had to go home to get something else to eat. Nice for a special occasion, but you won't make a habit of eating here."
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "We had read all the reviews and couldn't resist trying out Minerva's in Sioux Falls when we were passing through. What a great surprise to find some of the best steaks we've ever eaten! Excellent place to eat!"
    Dined on 7/17/2014
  • "My husband ate here a few years ago and raved about it. On our vacation to Mount Rushmore we had the opportunity to eat there and it was everything I expected and hoped for. The lighting was perfect, not too dark, but very romantic. Our server was excellent and very knowledgeable about the food and the various wines available. The prime rib was the best I've had. My husband loved his fish. Just as an after thought, I might add we were the youngest people in the restaurant and we are in our mid sixties. Not sure why this is unless it is an established place, almost like a neighborhood restaurant that has been around for a long time."
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "Everything was delicious. Definitely the best place on Phillips St."
    Dined on 7/10/2014
  • "We arrived 10 mins. before 7:00 and were greeted and seated very quickly. Our server was prompt with the menus and came back at a proper amount of time. That is where everything went south. The kitchen staff must have screwed up my wifes order and tried to keep my order warm under lights. I had ordered the shrimp and scallop scampi and even I know you can't keep seafood warm under lights. The staff said they were sorry for the delay but that is no excuse for poor quality food. My scallops and shrimp were like rubber, my wife had the puget sound crepe and the shrimp on top were on the over done almost burnt side the sauce was almost like a thick gravy vs the light sauce it used to be. After 34 years this was disappointing."
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "We moved away from Sioux Falls 24 years ago, before we moved we had eaten at Minerva's several times and really enjoyed the salad bar and outstanding food. We have now moved back and we're very pleased the salad bar and food are just the way we remembered. Minerva's is an excellent place to dine. ."
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "I always have dinner at Minerva's when I visit Sioux Falls. It never disappoints - Minerva's is one of my favorite restaurants anywhere. The ambiance and service are excellent. I love the salad bar and the steaks and chops are always perfectly prepared. I particularly like the quartinos of wine - perfect for one person."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "My husband and I have been eating here for decades; actually, our rehearsal dinner was here September 25, 1981! In the beginning, their specialty was crepes ... of course the menu has expanded a great deal. We still make sure to eat here every time we visit!"
    Dined on 6/11/2014
  • "Great food went for 5 year anniversary gave each other cards our waiter saw the cards and gave us each a free small slice of cake. Which was delicious lemon cake."
    Dined on 5/30/2014
  • "Joan and I have traveled most of the USA and most of Europe. That in mind takes you back to the consistency of Minerva's, there's no place like home. "
    Dined on 5/30/2014
  • "We made a reservation, but arrived a bit early. That was no problem and we got right in. The staff was very nice and unobtrusively attendant. Food arrived at the proper times and was absolutely delicious. We couldn't have asked for a better dining experience."

    Dined on 4/19/2014
  • "Minerva's is always our "go to place" when we are out with friends or a group. The food and service is always excellent and the atmosphere is lively without being too loud to hear your dinner companions! "
    Dined on 4/19/2014
  • "I've been dining at Minerva's for 25 years, & overall, have been happy with it. The last two times, not so much. In December, the seafood risotto wasn't good, and was very much lacking in seafood. The walleye was tasteless & tough. We thought it just must have been an "off" night, so we waited a few months & went back Saturday evening. We both decided to try the walleye this time (either we are gluttons for punishment, or were unrealistically optimistic - not sure which.) My fillet was a good one that was cooked properly, but the outside was still tough & it was tasteless. My husband was served a skinny, overcooked, tasteless fillet. Disappointing! I must say, the salad bar has been consistently good! We'll get only that next time."
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "This restaurant was among others close to my hotel on a recent trip to Sioux Falls. It was recommended by several people. Great variety of food choices, outstanding salad bar, full beer and wine selections, and a friendly server Suzie!"
    Dined on 4/9/2014
  • "I try to visit Minerva's everytime I'm in Sioux Falls. The menu is varied and has something for everyone - I always think I need to try something different, but almost always go back to the Puget Sound Crepe. It's amazingly good, and something I can't get anywhere else. Would not only highly recommend, but have taken lots of newbies here to introduce them - now they're hooked as well."
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "You cannot get any better in Sioux Falls. The service and food are excellent. I would recommend that you have a reservation. It is well worth the visit."
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "Now granted we moved here from back east and have the finest of dining available at a moment's notice, however, this does not even come close to being just that. This restaurant was talked up by so many saying how amazing the food is, the atmosphere, the service, it's like no other in Sioux Falls. In reality, it's mediocre, over priced, and pretentious. For a Saturday Night you would think they'd have specials, not one! I am in my early 30s and the vast majority of the patrons were over 55 years old. The food is very bland and judging by the customer base, this is why. Not worth the $$$ we spent for a date night! Go to Carnival Brazilian instead!!!"

  • "A very special dining experience every time we go! Great food (love the salad bar). Friendly staff. Exceptional service."
