“Not the best, but in the top 5”
Reviewed May 22, 2014

Went for a graduation and got to eat at Minerva's. The tout their salad bar, and well they should. You can make your meal there without even touching the menu. I wouldn't recommend it, though. I had an absolutely delicious pork chop, with mashed potatoes, and green beans. Excellent comfort food. Others in the party had steaks they said were delicious, too. Go hungry, or don't go. You'll get plenty of food for your dollar. Located in the downtown area of Sioux Falls, I think we'll be visiting more often on future trips. In our group, 10 people ate for about $25 apiece.

“Oh My Heavens!”
Reviewed May 16, 2014 via mobile

We had dinner at the flagship Minerva's in Sioux Falls, SD last evening. The restaurant is georgeous! We had reservations, & I would highly recommend you have them any day or night. The waitstaff was very attentive and polite. We were a little slow to decide what we wanted.......too much talking and catching up with friends, and our waiter, Theron, was very polite and patient!
We are from NM and know good beef....
Minerva's does it right! Everything was succulent! My filet was as tender as butter and Chef Chad Hays cooked it to perfection! All of our steaks were to die for and the Walleye cooked by Monk was also fantastic! The sides were delicious! We didn't try the desserts because we were stuffed! Hats off to the Minerva's crew! Thanks for the FABULOUS dining experience! Most excellent!!!!!!!

“Excellent luncheon salad bar”
Reviewed May 15, 2014

Went to Minerva's on a business lunch, and Minerva's has to have the best luncheon salad bar around. From the smoked salmon, to the various types of lettuce, various salads, fresh shaved meats and outstanding tomato bisque soup, they've nailed it. Highly recommend!

“Fabulous as usual”
Reviewed May 5, 2014

This place is always great! As the "flagship" of this family of restaurants, the atmosphere and service are always outstanding. The food was wonderful as was the service and overall experience. The salad bar is a must...which leads to leftovers to savor for another meal!

“Dining at this restaurant made an extra special birthday for me!”
Reviewed April 30, 2014

This restaurant serves great food, great service, good ambiance at a very reasonable price! The hostess and our waiter were great, the restaurant was pretty full but our meals were timely and of great quality. This is one of my favorite picks if you are looking for fine dining in Sioux Falls!
