This is our ' to go to place " to celebrate, take friends, or just to have a great meal. The service is excellent and the food is delicious! We enjoy the variety of desserts if we have room for one.

Great steaks. It was a little fancier than I was expecting. The prices seemed a little high ($20-30 for a steak entree) but it was delicious.

I had the salmon on a plank. Really good. It came with a sauce that was delicious. There was a basket of delicious little breads. yummie. The waitress was friendly and chatted a little with us (which we like). The presentation was nice. I'm not any gourmet, but when it is pretty, tastes good, and is served with a smile,... More

Been here several times and was rather disappointed this time. Service was very slow and my Filet had huge amounts of fat. Not what I expected. It's still a really nice clean place to eat, but I will probably choose somewhere else next time.

We have eaten at Minerva's for many years. Tried it again on this visit. The salad bar was very good and had good variety. The food was just average, even though it was "fancy" recipe type meals. The prices are relatively high, especially for the quality of the food now.

Minerva's was close to our hotel, so we headed there for dinner. The food was good , but there were a couple of glitches. Salad bar was pretty large with good offerings, my salmon entree was excellent, but my husband's supposedly lightly breaded walleye was very heavily crusted and overcooked. We had to wait about twenty minutes for his excellent... More

A best kept secret in Rapid City, SD. We were in Rapid City for a week this September and had dinner most evenings in the downtown area as that is the area mentioned in most of the travel guides etc. Our last night we decided to stay closer to our hotel and went to Minerva's. When we arrived I noticed... More

No cross country driving vacation would be complete without a visit to Mt. Rushmore, so we found ourselves staying a couple of days in Rapid City, SD. Based on the recommendation of our hotel, we gave Minevera's a shot for lunch and were pleased far beyond expectations. Rapid City has more than its share of fast food outlets, but if... More

Minerva's has always been known for fine dining in The Dakota's. But the happy hour is also not to be missed. Fine dining or pizza-- decisions, decisions. Don't miss the salad bar!
