Minervas looks great. Bar area is much more open. Booths are nice and more functional. Great happy hours (early and late). Food is great as always. Wonderful staff.

We went to this newly renovated restaurant based on recommendations from local businesses. It was nice inside and we were quickly greeted and seated. The cocktails were very good. However, that's where it ended. Our food was obviously frozen and barely re-cooked. Yuck! The bread looked delicious and was hard as a brick. The dipping sauce for the coconut shrimp... More

First time to a Minerva's and it was for Easter brunch. It's a nice place and the outdoor patio while not open looked to be inviting for better weather. There was a wait as expected but shorter than anticipated. We all left feeling a bit short changed for a $20 run through a bunch a grunch. Some items were not... More

Had lunch at Minerva's and it was excellent. Food was prepared as ordered and steaming hot off the grill. The presentation was also excellent. Definitely would recommend this location for a great lunch.

We like Minerva's for several reasons and is the one place we go to when celebrating special occasion! The steaks, pasta and pizzas are all excellent! There Sunday brunch is very good and price is reasonable. It has been awhile since I have had lunch there but they were always good!

Love Minerva's, really the only place on the Northside in this caliber of restaurants. We sat in bar area and our server was fantastic! She was very busy as was the only server in that area, she was bussing her own tables (may want to hire someone to do that), waiting on tables, getting drinks etc. All with a smile... More

A friend and I went there for lunch yesterday and had a very good meal. The server was friendly and checked on us often to see if we needed anything. They are in the process of renovating and updating. I am disappointed that they removed the small meeting room and are replacing it with a much larger meeting room (I... More

Whenever in Sioux City, Iowa, we love to dine at Minerva's after Church on Sunday. This Sunday, they serve a "loaded" deliciously prepared buffet (their Sunday feature) paperback, with specially prepared scrambled eggs, an egg casserole, creamy shredded potatoes, waffles with syrup & puréed strawberries, Asian "dressed" lettuce salad, traditional lettuce salad, large mixed fruit bowl, endless supply of bacon...

Minerva's provides a quiet, classy atmosphere with friendly, attentive staff. The menu offers great variety and very fair prices. There are so many good things here - the pork chops are amazing, the Cajun chicken linguine is a favorite, and the wonderful loaded potato pizzas are excellent.
