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. Minerva's is a long-time favorite of my family. The hard part is choosing... More

Once in awhile I come up to Sioux City to visit family. We ate at this restaurant and it started out okay. We ordered drinks and our food but I thought it was strange that the server brought our check before our food. We were all very confused and as it turns out he forgot our food because he was...

Minerva's is a mainstay in town. Menu offers a wide selection of choices. We chose the walleye and weren't disappointed. The bar is a great place to meet, greet & eat. For all types of events this is a great place to gather to dine.

Went to Minerva's in Sioux City for a company holiday lunch. Ordered off the menu, so had a full choice of options. Chose the seafood mac and cheese. There were maybe 2 shrimp and the scallops were either chopped up or non-existent. In abundance were large chunks of grilled salmon. Now, if you really like grilled salmon, this would probably...

Our service lacked. It took a extremely long time for the entrees to arrive after salads and appetizers were finished and the wait staff offered no update or explanation although when the waiter brought the bill he explained they had discounted the bill. The food was good. The atmosphere was loud and casual with a lot of regulars.
