Good place to go for a little more upscale atmosphere and food. Prices were not unreasonable and service was good.

Came here in celebration of my bachlorette party... and even though it wasn't needed I recommend making a reservation especially in the summer months when Okoboji gets busy. When you eat at Minerva's you don't get the feeling that you are eating at a restaurant within a hotel. Definitely recommend coming here if you want to celebrate a special occasion... More

I love their house salad, their drinks, their desserts, their rib-eye, their pasta nights, breakfast buffets, etc! Excellent place to dine!

Having enjoyed the original Minervas in Sioux Falls, SD many times, it only made sense to eat here as well. Nice ambience and a wonderful view of the golf course is offered. There is patio seating as well. No view of the lake however. Being a weeknight, there was plenty of seating and a quiet atmosphere. The only complaint was... More

I love Minervas and really like their food. I hate that the prices seem to just keep going up and portion size going down. Great food though.

Menu has not changed dramatically over the years, but still nice choices. I've never been disappointed @ Minervas. Favorites include the Hunter's Ribeye and Chicken Carbonara Tortellini. Enjoy!

We have been here before and remembered the great food. We were not disappointed at this visit. We had filet, rib eye, steak tips. The house salad and bread are excellent. Our server was somehow distracted ( mixed up drink orders, never brought us items we asked for, etc), but would definitely return.

On a recent business trip to the Iowa Lakes region I was trying to find nice upscale dining options but options were a little more limited because of the time of year. Fortunately, I found a Minerva's. Great location in the heart of the Lakes region. Food was well prepared and service was excellent. Started with salad which was very... More
