Superb

Fabulous gourmet food, Italian and American. I love eating here, nice beautiful and the staff are friendly. My food was prepared perfectly and it is worth the wait to eat fresh prepared and awesome food.

My husband and I decided to eat at Minervas based in the reviews and we are glad we did. We had seen the reviews for some of the Indian restaurants and went by two of them and they were closed as it was 3pm and lunch was over. So I got on trip advisor and read the reviews for Minerva.... More

This was a wonderful place to eat. It was a little spendy but well worth it. The steaks were great as I am sure everything else would be also.

We came back for a business dinner, and the atmosphere at Minerva's was just perfect for this! Our party of four had the steak tips, seafood risotto, ribeye and filet Oscar. Each entree was SO excellent! We skipped the salad bar--warning that the house salad has green and black olives on it; it's uncommon so just a heads up so... More

Menu selection was very good as was the food. Desserts could have been smaller and priced less. Wine portions were small.

Most restaurants in Rapid City are chain restaurants, and very hit or miss. Minerva's is consistently outstanding in both quality of food and service. My fiance and I frequent Minerva's when we are looking for a nice sit down restaurant. The food is unique to the standard American fare from other restaurants in the area, the ambiance is nice for...

Had lunch there recently and was really impressed with the choices on the menu. There was a soup and salad bar in addition to a sandwich menu with available sides. The ambiance was elegant and wait staff was excellent --friendly and efficient. It will be my choice again for lunch soon.

The breakfast buffet was great! The selections were incredible, and the service was stellar! We had dinner here as well, and were satisfied with the food, but it wasn't excellent. I was disappointed with the seafood risotto, because all of the shellfish were overcooked. The service is the real crown jewel of this place. They really made our stay in... More

You can tell Minerva's has been around a while, but we were really impressed with our dinner last night. Server was a bit slow, which was weird since the dining room was nearly empty, but the food made up for it. We had the crispy chicken risotto and the seafood risotto, both were excellent. Salad bar was good too, some... More

We were part of a large group, about 50 of us, so I expected our group to have a negative impact on the kitchen but was very happy with my meal and service.
