If you are looking for an upscale restaurant without killing the budget, Minerva's is the place to be. They have the best salad bar in town, but be careful....one trip through there and you will have a hard time finishing your even better entree. HIGHLY...More

This was once a very good option at any time because food and service was dependable good to excellent. Now, it's a "crap shoot," sometimes very good and occasionally not.

The dress code is quite informal. I saw people in suits and I also saw blue jeans and western style shirts. We usually dress in business casual as the atmosphere is very nice. But it is South Dakota and people there are... More

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!
