the steaks are excellent and the service even better. The Hunter's Ribeye is above and beyond expectations. Tell them to leave the juice/gravy off and you will enjoy it more. The house salad is just so tasty and plenty of it. Served in this giant bowl of all kinds of vegetable. The server we had was an ex-huterite and she... More

Stopped in to spend a gift card. We each had steaks. Mine was too small for the value. I got the 8 oz. Top Sirloin for $20. Just wasn't worth it. My girlfriend got the hunters ribeye with a lovely sauce. It was excellent. Drinks, bread, service, salad were all top notch. Great ambience by the fireplace made for the... More

The location, attached to hotel made it worth the trying. The service was pretty good, but the food was not nearly as good as what I was expecting. Started off with a good salad, but main course was like dried out and only warm. Would probably not go back

Two women for lunch, we were treated with respect and very pleasant, friendlly staff with swift attention. Coffee was very good. I had roast beef entree, mashed potatoes, and substituted applesauce for the vegetable was excellent. My friend had soup and salad that she thought was terrific. We reluctantly passed on desert. The dining room and restrooms were spotless. Resteraunt... More

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.
