    Minerva's is a Sioux Falls treasure. From steaks to seafood to salads to deserts Minerva's excels. Minerva's is our 'go to' spot for all of our special life events and birthdays. Our book club holds our annual Christmas gathering at Minerva's each January (this year February!) When people visit Sioux Falls always take them to Minerva's. Minerva's is Sioux Falls.

    What a great experience dining here on a Friday night. I expected a bit more 'chaos' but there was not! They have such a great layout that I didn't feel crowded at all. We were well attended to by our main server and others. I opted for the salad bar which was highly recommended by friends. Great choice. Many items to choose from and I found the salad bar very clean and pleasantly arranged. The seafood chowder was one of the best soups I have ever had. The whole menu looked fantastic. A highly recommended restaurant in a relaxing atmosphere. Great place to eat before attending a broadway musical! Thank you!

    It had been a while since I’d been to Minerva’s but quickly remembered why it’s one of the best restaurants in Sioux Falls. The service was impeccable, food was terrific, and experience made for a great evening. Can’t wait to go back.

    Ribeye with the Hunters streak add on was excellent. Salad bar is loaded with options. Had the key lime for dessert. Very tasty as well. Good wine list, and the service is probably the best in Sioux Falls.

    Pedimos un rib eye con arroz salvaje y una pasta con langostinos la vdd los dos platillos súper ricos y fue bastante rápido también, los meseros siempre están atentos si te falta algo, es algo costoso sin embargo por la atención y el sabor de la comida sin duda vale la pena totalmente, tienen un amplia selección de vinos así como de cervezas, y aunque pedí una cerveza que no tenían me recomendaron otra que estaba muy buena también.

    What else is there to say. It's Minerva's. And it is the best salad bar in America. Not to mention the amazing prime rib. It's not free. But it's worth the treat once in a while. You earned it go get it. You will not be disappointed.

    Was reluctant to try the burger battle entry "Rootbeer Burger". Was totally blown away with how good it was, and the fries and dipping sauce, amazing. Wished it would be continued after the battle is over as I now crave it.

    Probably 6 visits a year x 18 years. New York strip ordered Medium was rare (very). Went with it since others at table were already eating. Ordered creme brule and came out with sugar burned and black. Tasted nasty so didn't eat. How did this even make it to my table?? Other's food and desert choices were good. Other New York strip ordered medium at the table was cooked to medium. I am not impressed with your kitchen, Minervas. Its the last time I will oder a steak there.

    Minerva's has everything you are looking for in a nice dinner out. The food menu is always fantastic and the service is some of the best in the city. From the moment you walk in the door you are greeted by friendly hosts and that carries through the entire dining experience. It's great for those who are visiting Sioux Falls or if you've lived here your whole life.
