I really enjoy eating lunch here. Have never been disappointed. However, their brunch is not worth it. The effort just isn't there. Never been disappointed with service. Bar and dining area are both good for ordering a meal.

We had a small group of nine relatives having lunch together here recently. The food and service were both very good and the prices were reasonable.

For many years, Minervas was always our go-to for date night. Then they changed up the menu to try to compete with newer restaurants and lost some of their individuality and the prices increased. The food has been a bit inconsistent over our last several...More

The food was amazing and so was the service! My coworkers and I were surprised that we had such a great lunch and could get in and out within the lunch hour that we had available to us. Keep it up, Minerva’s! Thank you!

I totally agree that casual nice comfortable attire is appropriate. You will see families there, also. I have only eaten their buffet there on Sundays, so am unaware about the rest of the week.

Minerva's definitely serves brunch, as a one price buffet. Delicious! But sorry, I don't know exactly how much. Call and ask.
