    The appetizer (lettuce wraps) which used to be excellent, was a huge disappointment. Water wasn’t iced properly thus we ended up with tepid water. Salad was unremarkable (didn’t particularly like the ingredients). Dressing was good. Potatoes were very good. The big disappointment was the rib eye steak. My sister and I shared it as it was a large steak. By the time we cut all of the fat off my sister’s potion was maybe 2-3 oz. Mine wasn’t as bad but definitely too much fat overall. My friend and I used to lunch at least once a month at Minerva’s and it was always sooo good! She has since passed so haven’t been back since then. This was my ‘big return’ to experience my wonderful memories at Minerva’s. I was so excited! And then so very disappointed with the food. What a let down. Everything else was stellar. Wasted money…highly doubt we will ever return.

    I was told by a few this was a classy place to dine. It's not. Maybe at one point, but not anymore. The waitress and a few other employees I talked with were very nice. However, my old fashioned was very watered down and the rye whiskey was definitely a well tasting whiskey. I ordered the buffalo cheeseburger and asked for bacon on it, and I ordered the burger medium rare. What I received was well done for both the burger and bacon (very crunchy). I sent it back after having only had a bite or two. They luckily removed that from my bill, which is great on them! The chef even apologized. Kudos. My dining companion ordered the champagne chicken and reported it was decent. This is more your standard Americana food in a place that looked like it was once rather nice.

    It was the Saturday after Thanksgiving and my husband, 2 visiting sons and I had a wonderful experience at Minerva’s. We shared the calamari appetizer which was great (love the sauce). My sons had the pork marsala and whiskey sirloin. I had the potato crusted walleye and my husband had his usual buffalo burger. Everything was prepared perfectly and the service was top notch. Love this place.

    We got sat in the walkway between the host table and the hotel entrance, which was a constant flow of people and kids in and out. The food was mediocre compared to a year ago at the same restaurant. Entrees, like steak and signature meals, should come with a soup or salad option, not at an additional charge to the meal. Overall, just not a great experience or a romantic vibe atmosphere. We were quite disappointed in the quality for the price.

    Lots of noisy kids running around, the entrees came out before we were done with our salad, my chicken tasted strange and was overcooked, and my husband’s pasta dish had overcooked and rubbery shrimp. Manager was nice, but we won’t be back.

    We enjoyed the Chislic appetizer. Meat was very tender. Walleye entree was good, as was the Oktoberfest pork special. A woman was allowed to bring her young dog in to the restaurant. It was not a service animal. That turned us off, so we skipped coffee and dessert and left.

    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.
