The food was nothing to write home about. I had lunch here with the half sandwich and salad. Sandwich was ok but the salad was soggy.

We stopped for lunch at Minerva's by chance because we found A a place to park.
What a pleasant surprise!!! We say at the bar, and the bartender, Pam, was helpful, and funny.
I ordered an entree of Macaroni and Cheese. Dave ordered a chicken, apple, cranberry sandwich on grilled Chibatta, and the soup of the day which was a hearty prime rib soup. We also were served a basket of fresh baquette warm, and served with whipped butter.
Also, on Tues. and Weds., you can purchase a bottle of wine for 1/2 price with an entree.
Service was wonderful, food was very good, and we thought we had discovered a nice place to dine!



Thank Sandy J

We had a wonderful dinner at Minerva's. The Whitefish pate was lovely and the Duck with figs was excellent, although the asiago cheese overpowered the mashed potatoes . My husband had Mushroom Risotto and did his best to eat it all, but it was a huge portion. The wait staff was friendly and helpful, and we didn't feel rushed.

I expected a classier dining experience. Our waiter was nice, but seriously lacked proper serving etiquette, setting our plates down with a loud "thud" every time. Waiter seemed "over worked" though not many were dinning. Food was average, nothing special. Seriously needs new decor, table linens, and a good cleaning!

Had the white chicken chili and it was excellent. There was many things on the menu I would like to try. Service was good. Will definately go back.
