We ate breakfast at this Minervas two mornings and both mornings our food was excellent and service was great. The decor of the facility is very inviting. Highly recommend.

We've been here 3 times and have yet to be disappointed. Great menu, casual side or a better higher end side. Plenty of TV's if you want to catch a game too. Terrific happy hour menu too!!

But whatever.. then they told us that my son's pizza was accidentally sent... More

We ate there several times during our stay. Great food and service. Try soup and salad bar. Great for us older lighter eaters. Great selection and two soups. Terri P. Took care of us one meal and was very attentive and a breath of fresh air after a long day in the truck getting there.
