Another great visit

Never disappointed if you're looking for a great lunch stop in. They serve wings and pizza in the bar and it's amazing. The staff is always friendly and very prompt and the food is great,hot,fresh, and delicious. I recommend the dixy style wings.

Date nite on last day of their BBQ special. Partner loved her salmon on a black cherry plank! Instead of the $30 mixed BBQ grill I chose the brisket bisquits-fail IMO ;-( Service was just fair. I was the DD and even though waitress acknowledged my coffee was empty several times, she never came back to refill. I finally went... More

We stopped here for a late dinner. I had the hamburger with fries and Mrs. M had the house salad. Both were excellent! The fries had a spicy seasoning and the burger was perfectly cooked. Mrs. M was blown away with the house salad saying it was one of the best she's had. Service from Sarah was excellent. We hung... More

We tried this restaurant when we were visiting Rapid City recently and were staying in the Best Western Ramkota hotel. The food was outstanding! We were actually very surprised to find a restaurant connected to a hotel where the food was of such good quality. The steak was delicious and so were the other seafood and appetizer options. They had... More

We are on vacation & were looking for a local restaurant for a light evening meal. We ordered dinner salads from a very delightful waiter (Karen). We are pretty picky but we're extremely pleased with the food and the ambiance of this restaurant. Highly recommend it!

Service was poor from the start and our main course options were particularly disappointing. My wife chose the specials Meatloaf option which was dry and... More

Minerva's is one of the best regional restaurants in the area. The food, atmosphere and service is among the very best Rapid City has to offer, though located a bit away from the city's center. A large and varied menu served in a quiet and appealing atmosphere. Excellent bar service as well.
