Went here on a recommendation from family member. 2 out of our party sent their meals back. I tasted their food just to see if they were being too picky but both were pretty bad and I would not have eaten it myself. I had a chicken disk with a tomato based sauce which was edible but very dry. Staff... More

This restaurant is connected to a hotel in front of a mall complex just off of Rt. 90. The menu was varied and large and the prices were reasonable. The food was delicious and the service was excellent. An added plus was a piano player and wonderful music to dine by. It was a night we dined and not just... More

We hadn't been in Rapid City for a couple of years, but we never, ever will forget our meals at Minerva's. The Pecan Crusted Walleye is my favorite, but this time I had it with a potato crust, and it was as delicious. The garlic mashed potatoes, and the dinner salad complimented the Walleye. My husband, had his usual dinner... More

Stopped by on our way to Yellowstone, based on the trip advisor reviews. Food was excellent, if a tad pricey. Convenient to I90.

We went based on trip advisor reviews. I will say our actual food was delicious if not outstanding, but the service was really poor, and the salad bar in such sad shape I had to ask staff to refill things.

Stayed in Rapid City at Ramkota for 15 days due to my mother's open heart surgery while on vacation headed to Montana. This restaurant is amazing. The staff is friendly, professional, yet compassionate, and the food is outstanding. Happy hour is great and reasonably priced. This restaurant is 5 star quality and deserves the recognition. Nate was very friendly and... More

One of the better, consistent restaurants in Rapid City. High End dining for Rapid. Happy Hour specials are good. Service is always good.

A great atmosphere to enjoy drinks, conversation, and some upscale bar food. They have delicious flat breads, wings, and calamari, OR you can order from the full restaurant menu. The Potato Pizza on the bar menu is my personal favorite.

Decided to eat here for the convenience of staying indoors at the Best Western nd not having to drive somewhere else. It was a good decision. We had a very friendly and helpful server. The food was good and at reasonable prices. It's quite a large restaurant, but they seemed well staffed to handle it.
