    The restaurant decor hasn’t changed much in 30 years. We had an excellent server. The food came to the table “luke warm”. The coffee was from a local coffee roaster and was very bitter.

    The food was very good. The salads were fresh. The prime rib had very good flavor and prepared perfectly to MR. My husband had the ribeye which was also perfectly prepared. The service was subpar. We had 7PM reservations and was seated at 7. We ordered right away when the server came to our table. It was 7:25 before we even received our drinks.

    My 10 oz., medium-rare prime rib was perfect! I mean perfect! Still one of the best salad bars in the region. Their old fashioned is among the best I’ve enjoyed. Our server, was a very proficient, professional, but a little more frequency in checking in on us would have been better.

    The "older" female waitress, who we get often, seems very unhappy, stern, scowls and never smiles. Minerva's, you know who I am talking about since it is blatant. Each time we go, I hope I don't get her section. I was going to order the chicken oscar, which is always good, but opted for a steak AGAIN thinking I might get lucky this time, not having learned my lesson from last time, or the time before that. My New York strip was tough as nails. Do you not tenderize your steaks? Your kitchen should be made to sample the garbage steaks they put out. But maybe they should have dental care first, because eating this almost pulled out some teeth. We come here because of the location near the Pavillion for events, and have been coming here since 1999, but it is my last choice downtown to eat. It has not what it used to be before COVID.

    My prime rib was a really nice cut and done perfectly; however, I wish it hadn’t been swimming in salty au jus. The asparagus was just right. My husband loved his pasta bolognese, though wish it would have been a slightly bigger serving. The chicken pasta dish our friend ordered was a larger serving and according to her, really good. Our other friend had a filet and salad bar. He said his favorite part was the potato salad.

    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!
