Description: A DOWNTOWN TREASURE SINCE 1977. Perfectly situated in the middle of downtown Sioux Falls, Minervas has been one of the city's most popular dining establishments since 1977. People love to make Minervas part of their evening out, whether it's a performance at the Washington Pavilion, a sporting event at the Events Center or a night at the movies. The eclectic downtown vibe offers outdoor seating in the summer, the best drinks in town, and live music on the weekends. The original Minervas still stands proudly on the corner of Phillips Avenue and 11th Street. The iconic restaurant was first established as Minervas Corner Creperie and eventually became the Minervas we know today. Guests look forward to our hand-cut, in-house aged steaks, fresh seafood, chops, classic pasta dishes, the freshest salads, and house-made desserts. Creating amazing memories is part of our colorful history. Making more of them is our promise for the future!

Great family restaurant that serves an eclectic selection of entrees and beverages. Great prices that won't break the bank. I had the firecracker shrimp over basmati rice that was excellent. My husband had the seafood Mac n cheese which he really enjoyed. You can get an adult beverage to go with your meal if you like. Prompt and courteous staff, I would recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a creative meal at a great price.

We found Minerva's online, we were looking for a mid price steak dinner. We were very well pleased with the quality and quantity of food. The word excellent is the only one I can think of to describe our experience at Minerva's.

Minerva's!! What a find!!! First of all..great atmosphere; nice and relaxing. Secondly, didnt feel rushed like many other places visited with young children. Last, BUT NOT LEAST, the SALAD BAR...can this even be called a salad bar...more like the Buffet before your meal! You do not even need to order any other item from the menu, just the salad bar! Absolutely great! We went for dinner one evening and back for lunch the next day!!

Not sure what the fuss is about. We stopped for lunch while in town for a conference. This seems to be the place to take clients (or your parents) when they visiting. My colleague enjoyed the steak tips but was ambivalent about the mashed potatoes. I had the salad bar, which was heavy on sandwich meat, mayo-coated vegetables and pasta. Minerva's wouldn't be my first choice the next time we're in town.

Minerva's is celebrated by the wellborn of Sioux Falls and the surrounding region. It is also a hoot of a place to chow down at for the commoner. This restaurant maintains to this day an elegance and quality that has been abandoned by all but a few others. The wait staff is impeccable and the food is splendid. Best of all, the cost of the cuisine is within reach of nearly all working folk.

Some would see the décor as dated. Others—myself included—would see it as heralding a more graceful day when dining out was so much more than pounding down nourishment as we fly between business or social opportunities. The fact is, Minerva's is a superior opportunity for the grandest of social times.

If your intention is to dine at a joint that you can get into and out of in a hurry, then this is not for you. If you design is to derive a total return on your dining and social investment, then Minerva's is your place.
