We had an inpromtu gathering of 12 co-workers meet at Minerva's on a Friday. We wanted to take advantage of the happy hour pricing. The hostess was very nice and told us we were welcome to combine two tables. She even brought us four extra chairs. As nice as the hostess was, the waitress didn't seem very thrilled to have...

Very nice hotel bar at the Park Place, with surprisingly reasonable drink and appetizer prices. The happy hour was all day on Sundays and quite long on the weekdays

Attached to a terrible hotel (Park Place), but food was okay. Service was great but we will probably not return due to service received from the attached hotel.

We stayed at the Park Place and had a dinner and two breakfasts there. Excellent menu with a lot of choices and excellent food. The breakfasts were a little large for senior citizens but very tasty. The pancakes are super.

Stumbled across Minerva's while in search of a nice place to watch the Mich/Mich St game and what a perfect find! Delicious, well-priced food, happy hour all day, it was early afternoon, so there was plenty of room at the bar to get cozy and settle in. Very attentive staff and cool locals to mingle with. Super happy we stopped... More

Traverse City is a hopping place late in October with many fine restaurants from which to choose. The "best" were all booked up and by the way, in large part quite loud. We heard that Minerva's had a nice quiet ambiance and good food. Both turned out to be correct. We had a pleasant booth and a good, not exciting... More

...and you would be wise to have lunch, dinner, or a drink here. They have a new chef from Washington and I really like the flavors and combinations. I had the blackened salmon salad and mushroom risotto. Both very good. Service was also excellent. I shall be back, if not tomorrow, then shortly thereafter.

Minerva's has a decent menu but needs a burst of flavor in its offerings and the service is hit and miss. However, their pizza has a wonderful crust and is quite tasty. For breakfast I ordered eggs over medium and a friend ordered them over light. They both came out Light. The server tried to tell me that I did... More

We stopped in just after they made last call to a wedding party and were hoping to just grab a night cap. Although last call and just been called, they were friendly enough to let us take a beer to our room.
