Ordered takeout, we were staying in a nearby hotel. Quinoa salad was delicious! Portions were small. Tea was over-sweetened. Walleye was overcooked. Pasta was bland. Very over-priced for the quality of the food.

We were very happy with all aspects of our dinner. The service was excellent. The waitress was friendly and offered recomanadations as we were not familiar with some of the local phrases on the menus. The food was served in a timely manner and the food was cooked to our specification. The atmosphere was good. The area was clean and... More

My husband and I were not happy with our meal here. I had the chopped quinoa salad, and while it tasted good, I was very disappointed that it was served without three of the ingredients that the menu said it would contain; it was missing roasted red peppers, basil, and avocado! I mentioned the missing avocado to the sever, and... More

Minervas has an excellent happy hour. They have food and drink options with great prices. They also have wonderful pizza. I recommend anyone who hasn't been for Happy Hour to head on over.

We had supper late here while on vacation. Food was good but the prices were quite high. Not real sure we would eat here again unless it was just the two of us.

I was not expecting anything great when I went in for breakfast while staying at the Ramkota. To my surprise I had an excellent server named Lindsay (sp?). She was very friendly and and very easy to visit with and obviously enjoyed her job very much.

We stopped for the Sunday Brunch after church. The food combinations didn't add up. Meatloaf but no mashed potatoes. Then they had fried chicken but fried green beans as a veggie. I enjoyed their cinnamon rolls and their salad bar wasn't too bad. The desert bar was underwhelming but not terrible. They offered great service and removed your plates fast... More

When here with friends for appetizers of a plate or two of their Buffalo wings. Just the right amount of spice and cooked t perfection. Wait staff very attentive, but not intrusive. All in all a good meal and worth a return visit.
