This restaurant is attached to a hotel and at first seems a little nondescript. However, it has a really nice ambience, and the food is very good, along with the fresh baked bread.I would highly recommend the Steak Gorgonzola Penne - it was great!

We again return to Minerva's of Aberdeen during opening week-end of the States' Pheasant hunt.Minerva's is located within the Best Western Ramkota Hotel. The server was very attentive. I stayed with a filet mignon and it was cooked to order as requested. Other side dishes were not as good as the main course. Cocktails were very good and our family... More

I was there for a lunch meeting during the week. Our server was very attentive and brought us out a sample of soup to try because we were all curious. There wasn't much disruption so that we could talk freely and our food was very good. It's a good place to hold a working lunch. Prices were very reasonable.

I read several reviews prior to having dinner here tonight. The waiter, who was very nice, said the steak salad was really good and the steak in it, amazing. It would be amazing as a replacement sole for my shoe, but not as anything I would want to eat. Two pieces I finally spit out as there was no way... More

Minervas is the class act of a restaurant in Aberdeen. Atmosphere is quiet. You are treated very respectfully and appreciated. Evening meals are special. Wine choices are numerous I would highly recommend going there.

We arrived and had about a 20 minute wait then we were sat in a section with nobody in it, our waitress seemed overwhelmed after a couple more people were sat. Once we finally got our food, my boyfriends was missing, the rest of us were almost done eating by the time it arrived. They did not offer and discounts... More

This is a restaurant attached to a hotel. The food was not great. The only thing we got that was really good was the cream of tomato soup! Don't set your expectations too high for this place-It is average at best. Wish I would have chosen differently for my birthday lunch.

We stopped on our way through Aberdeen as this place was rated high. My husband had a burger and he said it was good and I had the 1/2 sandwich and soup. Very good and we would go back again. Our waitress was extremely great with service, conversation and laughs. She was amazing!

This restaurant is attached to a Best Western. We did not stay at the hotel but we came to Minerva's for supper. My husband eats here often when in town on business. I ordered the top sirloin and it came exactly how I ordered it. It was a tad spicy (peppery) but I would totally order it again. They were... More
