Salad bar was empty at 7pm, rice was clumped, soup was too hot burnt, and did not have enough seats for our reservation.

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.

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.

Buffalo steaks were medium rare and tender with great flavor. Wine list was well balanced with many good choices.
Service was personal and attentive.

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.

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.

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.

Our server was fantastic. She did her best to take care of us. I had the steak tips and the whole dish was a little cold. My cocktail was really good. The restaurant was very dated, but we were tired from traveling all day, so it really didn't bother us much. Would I go back? probably not.
