Great food, great service!
Service was good. Food was good for the price but nothing over the top.
Salad bar was empty at 7pm, rice was clumped, soup was too hot burnt, and did not have enough seats for our reservation.
All 5 of us had an excellent dinner!
Had a drink, engaged in conversation and ordered and consumed finger foods in the Lounge
Dined here while visiting from AZ. Overall a good experience. Wide selection on the menu and a large dining area and nice bar. One of the best options in the area. Would dine here again.
Good food, one of our best meals in South Dakota. Diverse menu, excellent service.
On vacation. Nice place, food was fair, my salmon was over cooked and my husbands baked potato undercooked. The staff was great and very accommodating to food allergies.
When we got there they couldn’t find our reservation but they seated us anyway.
Buffalo steaks were medium rare and tender with great flavor. Wine list was well balanced with many good choices.
Service was personal and attentive.
good food, service, atmosphere. definitely a good choice.
Great service and great food!
The dishes were amazing! The prices were not bad, and the food was delicious! We had the Buffalo Sliders for an appetizer and they were awesome.
Just ok. Great waitstaff, though.
Customer service was excellent. I was told about the special of the night, which was Salmon Caper with Linguine. Was horrible. No taste what so ever and I wasn't even given a good portion of Salmon. I was given very thin crispy pieces of Salmon that tasted like these pieces were previously frozen and dipped into water to expand like a sponge. It was just nasty. Tomato bisque very good and chicken lettuce wrap was ok. Flavored Peach tea was awful as well. It pretty much tasted like water. Yes, in the end I was not charged for my awful entrée, but I think $45 for one pasta entrée, two beers, a peach tea, and an appetizer was a bit much. Won't go there again.
Nice service. Bland food
The service and food were both great. It is one of the most friendly places in Rapid to get a nice dinner.
Christina was a great server!
Food was somewhat bland. Blackened steak tips had little blackened seasoning. Lettuce in salad was old and wilted.
Food is always good. Service has been hit or miss last 3 times dining.
The good was just mediocre at best. Not worth the money.
Good food and service - Rebecca was very good. A welcome respite from all of the noise and activity of this week!
We were visiting Rapid City on vacation and were pleased with our experience at Minervas. The portions were large enough to share and we were well taken care of, the food was wonderful!
Vegetables on the plate were so minimal as to hardly notice they were there. Two bites worth. Meat was below average, noting that Minerva’s used to be so excellent!
We made our order on line and they gave us 2 minutes to
Hold the table. We were 10 minutes away. The table was available, but the service and food not so much. The waitress put in the wrong order and although the steak was correct, the side was chosen by her. It took two trips to get the correct food and it was cold. I would NOT recommend this establishment.
Excellent food, great spot. Try Sioux Falls too.
Traditional menu. Great salad bar. Salmon done perfectly
Dinner for two July 2021 during vacation in South Dakota. After 2 bad experiences at other restaurants we were happy to have a professionally served meal at Minervas. Although bison burger was tough, the salad and baked potato were perfect. Would return.
Great Experience. From the hostess, to our Server Jake, they did a great job. Keep up the good work!
Food was good as well as the service. Salad bar was good and well stocked.
We thought the food was bland. Nice atmosphere.
Great for families.
Very impressed by the setup, style of decor. Very inviting and felt higher class. Service was great, food was good and we would highly recommend it.
It is a nice atmosphere. Like a lot of places right now, they need more workers. Our waiter was very good.
It was 4th of July weekend and staffing was still an issue for them but the service was good. Food was okay and good sized portions. First time dining there
had a great lunch in the bar at this location, service was great
Very accommodating and friendly staff. Food menu has delicious choices although very limited kids menu. Would definitely recommend, especially because the kitchen allowed a special change for son to have pasta a specific way. Thanks for going out of your way!
wouldn't eat there again
We were a little disappointed in the quality of the food. The service was great though!
Great salad bar
