Very efficient and friendly service. Food was quick to arrive at our table after we ordered. All our menu choices were delicious and out of the ordinary (in a very good way!)

Our server Jordan was great we had a wonderful time and the food was great although my steak was a little rarer than I would have liked it to be. I’m really glad we chose here for all of us get together.

For a high quality restaurant it is in relatively poor repair. I sat in a booth where the vinyl was all ripped and they used duct tape to fix it. A restaurant of this caliber should keep their seating in good shape and up to date.

The reservation website is difficult to find but works well because it is very difficult to have someone answer the phone to make an in person reservation.

Alexis was an awesome waitress! Chicken on salad was a little charred and dry. But always enjoy our meals at Minervas!

we had a reservation at 6 which we got in no problem. we had a drink and appetizers. Then ordered our main course salad, and prime rib. our prime rib was delivered before our salad. We wanted to enjoy our appetizers and drink before our salad. but got our prime rib before our salad. Everything was good but just not delivered like we had liked.

Walleye was way overcooked. Could not chew it. Steak was not cooked as ordered and really tough not tender. Salmon was great. Salad and soup came and one minute later food was there. So it was cold cold before able to eat. Waitress good. Appetizer was really good. Celebrating birthdays there but not a great meal.

Checking in was smooth. There was a nice variety of food for Easter brunch but the food was cold and not full when went thru the line. Disappointed that omelets were additional cost.

Wait staff did good , no lug center pieces and the ceilings leaking and falling down was a distraction.
