We have eaten here many times before & always enjoyed it. We both had pasta dishes. Mine was the special, it was okay. My husband’s was really not good enough to bring home.
Service was excellent & helpful.
The service was exceptional--very friendly and efficient. The menu was limited due to COVID-19, however, everything on the menu looked fabulous. We were extremely pleased with our selections and would highly recommend Minervas.
Great food and service! Would return there for special occasions anytime.
One loud guest could be heard over 100’ away—friend of the staff—loudly bragged about his relationship with the chef.
Food was good. Wife wanted a Filet for our 43rd ann. Did not have it on the menu but had steak tips, why?
We had a get together with an out of town friend. The food was great, the service was exemplary, and I love the comfortable chairs and quiet place to visit! I always enjoy the Rapid City Minerva’s.
Our server was very attentive without being bothersome. Made recommendations and was very friendly.
the food was great
I hope I come back soon! We really liked the presentation of the coconut shrimp and the steak was really good. Unfortunately I wasnt a fan of the parmesan wedge fries. Service was phenomenal and honestly the price wasnt to bad for a nice restaurant like Minervas!
I must say I was extremely disappointed. Made a Valentine's day reservation 2 weeks in advance. Arrive at 6:10 for a 6:15 reservation and am told there are 10 groups before us. They hadn't even sat the 5:45 reservations. Poor scheduling on there part. Couldn't even give us an idea of when we would be able to be seated. Waited 20 minutes then gave us. I will be hesitant to try again.
Dinner was amazing, service was on point as usual. Food and portion size was great.
Great food, and drink selection. Atmosphere is pleasant and staff is very good!
Our anniversary celebration was perfect. Good friends, good food, great service and a very friendly staff. Minerva’s is the best!
Date night with wife. Food is amazing with great selection
We went there for our anniversary dinner. My wife had the salmon and I had the champagne chicken. Both meals were absolutely FANTASTIC. Our waitress, Nicole, was wonderful.
Our waitress was excellent. Food was perfectly delicious.
The only negative was being seated near a large party. They were not obnoxious, but a bit loud at times, just due to sheer numbers.
Very nice dining experience. Hunter did a nice job as our server. The staff wasn't pushy to get us out of there like some restaurants do. We could visit and eat at our pace for a good meal. Well worth taking it in.
To start with the positive, the service, including the hostess, the manager and the server were all very accommodating and attentive. Great job to them! The food was incredibly disappointing, with the exception of one dish out of four. The rueben was thin and dry...We would have been better off with a rueben from Arby’s. My daughter ordered the Mac and cheese. She’s not very picky but she couldn’t even eat it. I tried it and it tasted like noodles covered with a roux that wasn’t seasoned and didn’t have any cheese. Fortunately, one person ordered the champagne chicken and that was a hit. But, only one out of four dishes being decent doesn’t warrant a trip back.
Furniture... specifically booths very warn, dirty looking. Waitress was excellent.
Outstanding dining experience. Such a pleasure to have a well trained friendly wait staff as well!
They didn’t have our reservation, apparently because their WiFi was down. Guess it happens; but on Open Table? No one is minding this store. Btw, not that good
Great meal. We have been traveling all throughout the area and this was by far the best meal. Very unexpectedly gourmet, especially for a hotel restaurant.
We had a wonderful server who was friendly and prompt, he made recommendations on the menu and was very fast with anything we needed. The food was delicious and well prepared. The ambiance was relaxed and it was quiet and romantic. Overall fast, great service with great food and atmosphere.
Very good food, nice bread and good wine. Waiter was efficient, but not overly friendly. Only real downside for us was sitting outside the very noisy kitchen. Would definitely go back but ask for different seating.
Just a wonderful dinner and amazing food. Service was excellent.
Great food! The salad bar is more than worth it, you can make a whole meal out of that alone, totally worth the extra to add it to your meal! Food took a while to come out but everything was very good and they were sweet and accommodating for my grandmothers birthday. Overall, fantastic place!
Food was nothing exceptional. we had the walleye good but very greasy. We tried calling ahead for reservation but no one answered the three times i called. Walked in and no one at the front desk. One girl was eating behind a kitchen entrance and came out and was totally unprepared. We realized that new shift was coming on and it was early 4:30/5:00 dinner; but really if you advertise your open then be ready! very disappointed.
We have eaten here 3 or 4 times. We have always enjoyed our meals here and the service is always friendly and fantastic.
Hotel Dining. Rude bartender. Very nice hostess. Dead. Done.
We had booked Minervas because we looked at reviews and the menu. We were in the mood for a good steak house, and before we came we had eyed a great steak and some shrimps.
Unfortunately, neither their website nor their reservation warned us that the lunch menu would not be available on Sundays. So we were super disappointed when they told us we could only have brunch buffet and that we were not able to order from the lunch menu.
The service was friendly but very slow. We had to ask for simple requests such as soup bowls etc.
The buffet was half empty and didnt seem so fresh any more since we arrived at 1245 pm and the brunch ends at 2 pm.
The omelet chef was super friendly and did a good job.
The bathrooms are really far away and you have to pass the bar. Not very suitable for children to have to pass the bar which was full of bikers looking evil at non whites.
Booked a table through open table, when we arrived they did not have our reservation. They were, however, able to seat us quickly. Food was very good, service was average.
Was not ready for a motel dining room.
The food here is outstanding. I can never eat here enough. Dining like the old days, elegant and relaxing.
Great food and employees. In our group we had multiple steaks, and everyone loved them. The salad bar was first class.
Excellent restaurant. The food and service are reliably great.
Great food and presentation. Server was most helpful and pleasant. Would definitely go back.
Traveling from CA. Read about this place on another social media site... good reviews.
Don’t you just hate it when you spend a lot of money for steak and it’s not cooked to order (my case overcooked), no taste because of lack of seasoning (menu described it as spiced), and they put the burnt part face down on the plate ( like you are never going to see or taste the burnt; so, it’s ok to hide it)? Always a disappointment when the cost of the meal doesn’t meet expectations.
The salad bar was ok... nice option. The ambiance was nice, but it didn’t make up for a basically, very disappointing meal.
I do not recommend this restaurant.
Varied menu, good location, good service. Enjoyed crock of onion soup with lettuce wraps.
Obviously the hostess did not tell a server that we were there. After 10 minutes, I asked a person at a nearby table if he was our server. His reply was, I could be. There after he was very prompt and attentive. Very impressive menu, the food did not quite live up to the anticipation.
