They use cloth napkins. The lunches are my favorite. Great tomato bisque soap. My favorite restaurant in the Iowa Great Lakes. Service and selection are super.

We've never been disappointed with the food or service at Minervas. One of the best in the Lakes area, they have a wonderful selection of food from burgers to steak, and the service is great!
