Salad Bar Luncheon

We enjoyed the salad bar lunch very much. There was a large assortment of items on the bar. They were fresh and tasty. There were both make your own salad items, prepared salads, meats, soups, breads, etc. Very good. We felt it was a great value for the cost.

The only good thing was the proximity to our hotel so we could enjoy a glass of wine or two and not worry about driving home.

Arrived tired and hungry after a long day in the badlands. Seated promptly, server came quickly and was very pleasant. We ordered the salmon salad and my daughter the kids mac and cheese. the bread before the meal was excellent, sour dough and some grain bread that was wonderful. The salmon salad was delicious, great grilled onions along with hard... More

We've eaten at Minerva's in the past and enjoyed it, especially the salad bar. I decided to try the fish tacos this time, and was surprised they had sliced, raw jalapenos on them -- I got a mouthful of fire before I realized it, then picked them off. I was surprised the menu didn't indicate this was a spicy dish... More

We stopped in for breakfast and were sat at a broken booth. This was known by the staff and they just said "o, it's well used" The breakfast was average food, nothing special. By their prices, you would think it was special. Won't go back

The service for both dinner and breakfast were very good. Our dinners were very good as were the breakfasts the next morning. The restaurant has upscale decor and the staff is very efficient and professional.

We stop here for the salad bar when in Rapid City but this visit was a little disappointing because the pasta salads seemed a little UN-fresh is the best way to describe them. My wife had the fish tacos and she put the fish from one taco on the other taco to make a taco with enough fish to enjoy.

We were looking for good food without having to pay alot. Minerva's fit the bill. So much so that we went back the following night! The salads are enormous, tasty and fresh. A meal in themselves. Fish (yes, here in South Dakota) was fresh and delicious. And the steaks were awesome.

We ate here twice during a 5 night stay in Rapid City. This is a reliable restaurant. Each of our 2 visits were with another couple and we all enjoyed our meals and service. The entrees were good and included a very nice salad or soup appetizer. I especially enjoyed the Watermelon Gazpacho. It was so good, when I went... More

Large varied menu. Good salads, steaks are fine, pork tenderloin was very good. Only complaint was service was a bit jumbled...appetizer and main course at same time. Said to be one of the best in rapid city........not by big city standards- but certainly a very nice meal overall.
