I am not a fan of restaurants attached to hotels but... My group ate dinner here our last evening in Yankton and Minerva's was a very pleasant surprise. He menu was varied and reasonably priced.

Everything the group ordered was good. This included ribs, double bone in pork chop and steak. Special requests were enthusiastically accepted and executed.

Our server "Amy" was pleasant and professional and prompt.

I would make Manerva's an intentional stop next time in Yankton

We recently dined at Minerva's for Sunday brunch. There were 8 of us in the party, most of whom had dined there for lunch or dinner but never brunch. We were celebrating a special occasion and the organizer of the meal wanted to select one of Yankton's best dining venues. Minerva's very much lived up to that expectation. The brunch is so reasonably priced (compared to our home town brunch prices) we kept asking each other, really?...is that all they charge for this lovely spread? The selections were varied and kept fresh and hot, the wait staff were friendly and quick (our waitress was quick to refill our coffee mugs when needed), the place was packed but that didn't affect the efficiency of the entire operation. We were very pleased with our meal, the ambience and the staff. Good job, Minerva's. You will continue to shine as one of Yankton's finest.

We ate lunch in this nice restaurant while spending the day with relatives when we visited the Yankton area during our trip through SD. We had seen "Minerva's" reviewed on tripadvisor, while planning our trip, and we are very happy we decided to stop by! The restaurant adjoins the Kelly Inn, with adequate parking out front. The restaurant is large with a beautiful bar to one side and offers full bar service at lunch. The menu has great choices from salads to pasta to fish, steaks or burgers. The food was delicious! The salmon and Cobb Salad dishes were presented beautifully, were fresh and very tasty. We had two children with us, ages 2 and 7, and Minerva's had great choices for them: PB&J with fruit, chocolate milk, french fries and ICE CREAM! The service was a bit slow, especially for the youngsters, but once served, everybody was extremely happy with their choices. Don't miss Minerva's for lunch or dinner while in the Yankton area.

I gave Minerva's a poor review in the past, because, although I've tried it many times over the years, I never had anything that I considered very good. Lately, we've been eating there a lot, because everything has been FANTASTIC! It's our new favorite place, and by far and away, the best in Yankton. I believe they've gotten a new chef within the last few months....Anyway, steaks are juicy and cooked perfectly (I like medium well, which is hard to get right; boyfriend likes medium rare) - and we've both been happy. Lots of really tasty pasta dishes - I like the shrimp cappelini and garganzola steak the best. Greatest loaded mashed potatoes anywhere - they fold sour cream into the middle, which just puts it over the top! BF had the Prime Rib on Saturday night - he said this was the best prime he's had anywhere, and he should know, because he eats a lot of it any chance he gets! Bottom line, if you haven't been to Minerva's in awhile, it's worth it to try it again - I'm sure you'll love it!

Best little secret in Yankton! If you want a full menu and great food then stop to eat at Minerva's located in the Best Western Hotel on Highway 50 in Yankton, South Dakota. The food was served hot and well prepared by very friendly staff. It was fantastic and better than I expected in such a small town. Fabulous choices and wonderful flavors. You will be surprised and enjoy a great meal.
