Minervas offers a wonderful dining room where you have the ability to enjoy a quiet, relaxing meal with some amount of privacy. The service has always been top notch and pleasant without being "cutsie" or hovering. The menu has varied options and everything we have tried for both lunch and dinner have been delicious and highly satisfying. It may cost... More

Customers here run the gamut from high socity to cattle hands and everything thing in between. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable, and help to make your dining experience enjoyable. The steaks are great, and the salad bar is very good. Creme brulee makes a nice finish to the meal. The bread is excellent, and helps bring the meal together.... More

Our family recently went to Minerva's Restaurant, which tends to be a very regular event. The food and wine selections are first-rate and the wait staff very attentive and efficient. I would definitely recommend Minerva's for family gatherings as well as special events.

Had dinner at Minerva's in Rapid City. Had a great salad bar with a great variety. I have a prime rib French dip that was top notch. Highly recommend

Ordered takeout, we were staying in a nearby hotel. Quinoa salad was delicious! Portions were small. Tea was over-sweetened. Walleye was overcooked. Pasta was bland. Very over-priced for the quality of the food.

The waitress was friendly and offered recomanadations as we were not familiar with some of the local phrases on the menus. The food was served in a timely manner and the food was cooked to our specification. The atmosphere was good. The area was clean and... More

My husband and I were not happy with our meal here. I had the chopped quinoa salad, and while it tasted good, I was very disappointed that it was served without three of the ingredients that the menu said it would contain; it was missing roasted red peppers, basil, and avocado! I mentioned the missing avocado to the sever, and... More
