Great food.

The entrees are very reasonably priced. It may be difficult to book a reservation during the summer months since the restaurant is located in a Arrowood Resort and Conference center which is located close to Lake Okoboji.

great food - nice evening out. They also have a wonderful Sunday brunch. Service is always very good and so is the food. Nice, varied and fresh menu. It is always a safe bet for lunch or dinner. Have eaten here many times and it never disappoints.

We came on a day when they had a special-three course meal for $18.99. Appetizer, dinner n dessert. You could substitute a glass of wine for appetizer. Everything tasted good. Would come back again

This was the second year that we chose Minerva's in Okoboji to celebrate our anniversary. After the first year we thought that they were very good, but very expensive. This year they proved to us that they are exceptiional, and worth every dime spent. Our reservation, table, waitress, service, and food were all off the charts of totally amazing. We... More

We recently went to lunch with the family and in-laws and most of us had a good experience. The setting is relaxing and snowflakes were falling outside the window! The sourdough melts were fantastic. However one of us ordered a burger that was overcooked and very dried out-bad experience for her. Overall we had a good lunch!

Truly a feast in a very nice restaurant for this area. Some of our group opted for the steak which was cooked as ordered and a very good cut. The crab legs will keep coming and each serving was high quality. It definitely qualifies as a place to return to and try something else. You will pay more than the... More

Minerva's is a very good restaurant in the Okoboji area. It is well suited for families, couples and groups. The food was excellent at a moderate price and the service was very good.

Cozy, relaxing restaurant inside Arrowwood Resort. Variety of menu items. Nice place for a special dinner. Meal comes with salad that includes a variety of ingredients and delicious bread which were both served before the meal. Our two meals had an attractive presentation, and were very satisfying.

Group of four of us for sunday brunch on a weekend away from home. We had a server who was excellent in every way, was happy and cheery. The brunch had a decent selection of breakfast foods, and in honor of octoberfest had a german option of some kind of german sausage, purple cabbage, sauerkraut, and spaezle. So that seemed... More
