Good Food even locals eat here

We normally don't eat in hotel restaurants however we were very glad we did at this one. The food and service were excellent. We sat at the bar, there was a great selection of craft beer on tap and the bartender navigated us to the right pour. The food was excellent. We had an ahi tuna... read more

While this was my first time here. Was recommended by the bartender at my Hotel, I was less than impressed with the salad bar. I went for the soup on my first trip, and someone had dropped their soup bowl into the soup! Most likely because no one was filling the tureen up and you had to dig. After I... More

I have been to minervas a few times in the past few weeks. The food is very solid. The specials are creative and well prepared. The service is attentive and professional.

We thought we would try the Sunday brunch but were very disappointed in the quality of the food. There were cold eggs, sausages that looked and tasted suspiciously like hot dogs, dry pastry, etc. The coffee was good and the waitress pleasant - only good things.

I have found this place a great place for access and that is extremely important to me. The brunch line was very easy to go through and nothing better than the verity of food to try. Atmosphere is very good here. too. I usually come back here for their brunch because it never fails to be the best.

We went to their regular (non-holiday) Sunday brunch, and found a nice variety of foods. What we tried was all good-to-excellent. There was no meat carving station, but it's hard to expect one at the $14.95/person price point, which is good value for what is offered. The scrambled eggs and egg casserole were good, but it would have been nice... More

My husband and I decided to eat at Minervas based in the reviews and we are glad we did. We had seen the reviews for some of the Indian restaurants and went by two of them and they were closed as it was 3pm and lunch was over. So I got on trip advisor and read the reviews for Minerva.... More

This was a wonderful place to eat. It was a little spendy but well worth it. The steaks were great as I am sure everything else would be also.

We came back for a business dinner, and the atmosphere at Minerva's was just perfect for this! Our party of four had the steak tips, seafood risotto, ribeye and filet Oscar. Each entree was SO excellent! We skipped the salad bar--warning that the house salad has green and black olives on it; it's uncommon so just a heads up so... More
