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!

While traveling with a good, but not great, friend (he'll get the joke), we stayed in Sioux Falls and had dinner here based on TripAdvisor and Yelp reviews. It was even better than expected. Best drink: slightly dirty martini with Grey Goose (kudos to the excellent bartenders, who knew just the right amount of "dirt" needed in our martinis). Great dishes are the Cranberry Pecan Salad with chicken breast, the ribeye and the duck. Best part of our dining experience: our server, Andrea. She is a rare gem, mixing a great sense of humor with a professional manner and a dash of genuine Dakotan charm -- no less at such a young age -- making our meal extremely worthwhile!!

My host insisted we eat here so I had not idea it was was a top TripAdvisor restaurant. Now I see why. Outstanding in all ways! Food excellent (potato crusted salmon), salad bar great with lots of variety including cheeses and fruit, and service very good. We were the last table served as I arrived on a late flight - yet never felt pressured. The outdoor seating was popular, though we were indoors. A great place and fair prices.

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!!
