Greek food that's always consistent quality. Friendly family service. The Parthenon has desserts that are also sold at the Farmer's Market downtown lincoln. Good place to go if you are hungry for Greek Cuisine.

I can say that the food is top notch, after several visits I have always had great food. What was disappointing is the carryout is slow! OMG, the bartender seems to be processing all checks or table orders, tending bar and handling carryout orders. This would work if other the other help could share the same register, just if one...

My wife and I go here often, the food is always good, reasonably priced, and the service is always excellent, the food is always very good, I love the way they spice their chicken and the Greek potato is always tasty. The owner will often come around and chat with you, I consider it more of a lunch place, as... More

This restaurant was recommended by friends and I crave tziki, so it was worth a try. The waitress was so nice and she sought to meet our every need without being intrusive. The restaurant was clean and that dessert case forced us to buy a cake to go. My chicken slouvaki with Greek potato was tasty all around. It was... More

We were just traveling through and came across this place. Decided to stop in for a bite. Had to represent my Greek heritage! The server was so nice. He made some great recommendations. We ended up ordering the Salmon special with the mushroom risotto. Delicious. He gave me some baklava for the road for my birthday. I highly recommend this... More

Parthenon is a jewel in southeast Lincoln! Owner/Chef George Kazas runs a great restaurant, with well-trained staff and a thoughtful menu. It ain't all Greek, though! There's something for everyone. And, if you get a chance to attend one of the Parthenon's monthly dinner and wine pairings, you are in for a treat!

Our family has gotten into the habit of eating out more lately. Too busy or too lazy to put together a home cooked meal. One of our favorite places to eat is the Parthenon. The food is always fresh and the service is the best ever. The staff is fast to the table and so knowledgeable on the menu. The... More

Very good atmosphere, food was good, but, not great. I wish they had a 3.5 stars. That would be my rating. I don't think the food was quite as good as King Kong's overall, but, had a better atmosphere and service for a "date night". I would go back if in the area, but, I wouldn't make a special trip....

I maybe came here with too high of expectations but my fiance and I agreed that our meals were just ok. I'm glad we tried it and it wasn't a bad time by any means, but I still have a hard time shaking the feeling that the food wasn't as good as it should have been. I went to The... More

A very friendly waitress and nice atmosphere. Had the cedar plank salmon which was too dry to eat. Wife had the gyros which tasted like they were grocery store bought. Even the hummus was lacking. The spanakopita was about the only dish I can really recommend. Again- the waitress was super nice, she really was.
