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.

What a treat! After two friends told us that this place is worth the 60-mile drive, we had to go. We're so glad we did! It was the nicest, most tastefully decorated Greek restaurant we'd ever visited. Our server, Brittany, did a great job. Her suggestions were spot-on and much appreciated. We started with a spread and warm pita sampler.... More

The menu is varied with everything you could possibly want in a Greek restaurant. I would go if the only thing they offered was the Greek side salad. It is way beyond a "side" and always fresh and delicious. The atmosphere is casual and the entertainment is fun. (Check ahead to see if it is a special night . .... More

We've been going to the Parthenon since it opened. In all my trips I've only had one visit where the service and food wasn't outstanding. The braised lamb shank is easily one of the best meals in Lincoln, The salads are huge and always great. The deserts are worth every penny. Get the Baklava ice cream!

We ventured out to this southside restaurant after perusing TripAdvisor for suggestions. The friendly service and attentiveness of the entire staff is truly European and was just right; not distant, yet not hovering or ubiquitous. Unfortunately, we left no room for dessert and opted not to bring something home for later. The casual atmosphere and the unhurried dining experience did... More
