Diner Reviews
  • "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."

  • "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. ."

  • "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!"

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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!"

  • "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!!!"
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "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
  • "A very special dining experience every time we go! Great food (love the salad bar). Friendly staff. Exceptional service."

    Dined on 3/27/2014
  • "Had to wait a 1/2 hour even with reservation. Host said due to big groups. Service slow and waitress had no personality or skill other than bringing our plate of food. Steak was good but baked potato was very small served and overcooked."
    Dined on 3/26/2014
  • "Always a great dining experience. Salad bar is fantastic."

  • "Not as good as usual. This is my favorite place to eat. This time the Server was not great, and I did not like the fish of the day."

  • "We reserved a table for 7 for a birthday celebration. All the guests were fans of Minerva's so it wasn't difficult to pick a place to go. The waitress was friendly, knowledgeable, helpful, and efficient. Our food, including the one of a kind salad bar, was delicious as always, and everyone's meals were done right. This is why we will always go back to Minerva's. There is a great menu with something for everyone, and you can't go wrong with your choice. Other restaurants should try to model themselves after Minerva's."

  • "We took of for the weekend for the first time with no kids in two years. We heard Minerva's was the place to go and I have to agree. It was the best meal we have ever had. Fantastic steaks, wonderful salad bar, and fantastic service. Highly recommended! We are customers for life. We loved our experience so much we bought a gift card for or friends who where watching or kids so they could take a weekend off and spoil them selfless to a gourmet experience!"

  • "Really expensive but worth the cash for a couple hours out of the house. My Girlfriend and I had a two course meal with appetizer and a two drinks for $80.00, If it is a special occasion, go. If you are looking for a fun night, just stick to Outback, the price is half what it is here and the food isn't THAT much better."
