Pleasant evening in classy atmosphere.

Was a little apprehensive about previous reviews mentioning slow service but our group of 5 adults & toddler had an attentive server & we were able to get on to our schduled theater show in plenty of time. All entrees were served hot and promptly plus a nice menu from which to choose.

The menu had greater variety than I was expecting and some creative options among them. The entrees were very tasty. They just recently started offering on-tap beer from a local microbrew. The server was friendly, funny and attentive. Overall, a nice meal.

We have had mixed experiences here. We used to have wonderful meals here but the last couple were just average. The atmosphere is very good. The help was excellent. The house salad is superb. We love walleye and we wanted the walleye sandwiches. The bun was old and dry. The fish, what there was, was ok but the sandwich was... More

My family enjoyed their meals, mine was sub par. I wouldn't go back. Kids menu is over priced. Good bread and salad.

Made reservations, as we had a large party (22 ppl). We were seated right at our reservation time. Two waitresses serviced our table and were excellent. The food was delicious! Will visit again if we are in the area.

We've been eating at Minerva's in Okoboji for 20 years, nearly every time we visit the Iowa Great Lakes. But our most recent visit on July 2 was truly outstanding. Our server, Mariah, was wonderful, and the food was truly outstanding. Recommended.

Went there with 14 people and ended up enjoying the food. Unfortunately it was over an hour before the food arrived. Even the bread and drinks took 45 minutes. However the steaks were excellent, breaded walleye was huge and tasty, and especially enjoyed the different breads and generous plates of dipping oil with balsamic. By the time desserts were finished... More

The food is always good, presented well and the service great! This is one of the few places in the area that is open year round and consistently good!
