We love Minerva's. Always enjoy a meal here when in Sioux Falls.
This visit, four of five diners had good experience. One of our guests got a particularly tough piece of steak. She did not want to "make a scene" so we did not report it but she really had to put a lot of effort into sawing on it with a steak knife. Disappointing to say the least.

The food was good, but I think my favorite thing was the salad bar. An excellent selection of a large number of great foods

My lunch group loves to go to Minerva's for birthday lunches. We love their salad bar and the tomato soup is "to die for"! Everyone in our party received a small personal piece of cake and scoop of ice cream because we were celebrating my birthday. Mine had a candle!

Had a very nice birthday dinner and was not disappointed. The duck was excellent as was the seafood crepes. Would definitely go back when in town.

I expected much more from Minerva's than we got. It has a long reputation as one of Sioux Fall's best steakhouses. So expectations were rightly high. Unfortunately, the food was just average. My Minerva's Strip Steak was not tender, in fact it was tough. It was well sized, cooked correctly to order, but my guess is that it lacked the ageing necessary to produce a tender New York Strip. The salad bar was large, fresh, and well maintained with some nice offerings like crumbled blue cheese and pickled herring that you don't see on other bars. Appetizers were just average, the wine selection was nice, the servers were capable, but in the end you're there for the steaks and they didn't live up to expectations.

The steak Michael needed to be trimmed - way too much fat and grissle!! Hard to eat - had to spit out a lot of it!!!!!!!!!
The house salads were ice cold .... taking away flavor.

Food came out piping hot and everyone's orders smelled and looked delicious. I had the salad bar which never disappoints but I might recommend GF crackers available there. Great cheese spread and herring would be better with crackers. Always enjoy a meal at Minerva's with excellent service.

Sioux Falls has a lot of eating establishments and we have ate at many through the years. However we continue to always come back to Minerva's and it's our go to dinning destination. They just do everything right and make it look easy!

My meal was perfect as was the service. I tried a different entree of coconut curry chicken and enjoyed it very much. We appreciate the consistency of Minerva's over the years for reliable delicious meals and appreciate a few different menu options too. A nice evening. Slightly loud in the back room but managed to have a good visit with table mates anyway.

Minervas’s is our “go to” for special celebration dining. There’s a reason it’s been around SF for 40+ years. They always have excellent food and the best wait staff around. Wide menu choices... something for everyone. And they still have a beautiful salad bar.

The food was very good, but should be served on a hot plate. My Prime was cold half way through the meal. Maybe readdress your dress code (business casual) because I felt a little over dress compared to the rest of the crowd. Waitress was very good and checked in on us frequently.

My friends were visiting Sioux Falls for the first time. The waitress spilled a partial bottle of wine in his lap and did not do anything about it. No manager came over to apologize and no one offered any reimbursement. We payed for a full bottle! His shirt was ruined. Just very disappointed.

I have requested booth 66 like I always do; however, a server took it upon herself to put some people there because they asked if they could have it rather then where they were seated. Never bothering to check if it was already assigned:( Our server was awful - never did get her name. She never smiled and could not remember anything. The guests I brought were from out of town and have never been to Minervas before. The food was excellent as always but first impressions were below standard.

Wonderful food to celebrate our 50th anniversary. Mickey was an excellent waitress. We enjoyed the ambiance, the steak, seafood risotto, shrimp cocktail, our cocktails, salad... delicious. Can’t wait to dine there again when we are in Sioux Falls.
