    More than pleased with my experience of dining here and I consider the level of service to have been excellent. Seating and ordering were prompt and I found the facility to be quite comfortable and attractive. Dined with 3 friends, and our server was pleasant and very knowledgable of the menu. Our meals were served timely, hot, and cooked exactly as ordered. Based on my experience I am pleased to recommend and will without question return when in the Rapid City area.

    Don't let the location, inside Best Western, put you off. The restaurant is absolutely top notch! It's nicely decorated, the service is impeccable and to tough it all off the food is wonderful and fairly priced. We went for our anniversary dinner and we're very very pleased.

    First off want to highlight our Server Terri, she is absolutely amazing and treated us so well during our visit. She knew how to support our gluten allergy and was also extremely friendly and attentive. She is a keeper!! The prices were ok and the food itself was decent. My bison was undercooked and the dessert I got was a little too mushy (ice cream on the side next time would have been better). Either way we were happy with our visit and glad we stopped in.

    We had a reservation for our anniversary dinner and Minerva’s did not disappoint! I called Victoria’s Garden florist and had them deliver a centerpiece for the table and the staff made sure it was in place and everything was perfect. Our server Dave did an excellent job making sure our experience was great. We are visiting from out of town, but look forward to returning once again before we leave. Thank you again for a job well done!

Thank you Minerva’s for allowing our night to be so relaxing and enjoyable! Please give that man David a raise! Maybe have him teach others servers his greatness 😁 Keep being you David !!!!

    We had reservations for a party of eight on New Year’s Eve. The wait for the food was at least 45 minutes, but it was excellent when it got there. Healthy portions of salmon, walleye, steak, meal salad. It can be difficult to do but both of the fish entrées were cooked to perfection! A little skimpy on the vegetables with the meal. The waitress and manager were very efficient and friendly! Great place for freshly prepared food!

    I suspect these lovely folks may have failed to fully anticipate the amount they'd be busy on a Friday night - service was a tiny bit slow in a way that was really clearly downstream of there just not being enough waitstaff (even though the individual people all seemed excellent and competent and moving as fast as they reasonably could). But a good drink and a nice self-serve salad bar makes it really hard to worry too much about that! And the bison steak was, in fact, amazing (after a small snafu with my husband receiving initially a well-done steak instead of the requested medium-rare, which was replaced), I was fascinated by the interestingly different texture and flavor compared to a beef steak. Special mention for the mushroom whiskey sauce, which we were able to get as an addon with the bison steak instead of bacon, and which I 1000% recommend for any cut of steak, it was MARVELOUS - not only did it perfectly complement the meat flavor, it was independently just really amazing, if you gave me a soup bowl full of it I would happily eat it with a spoon. I would have liked to see a cocktail menu - I love me a This Particular Bartender's Specific Weird Thing He Made Up - but I can't complain about a simple glass of merlot with my steak, either. Overall, really happy with the experience.
