We enjoy dining at the Parthenon very much. We can always count on delicious Greek food at reasonable prices. We especially enjoyed the specials and the Greek pizza. Eating on the patio is always fun. We have taken out of town guests here and we have booked for special family celebrations. The owners are always very welcoming and the waitstaff... More

The Parthenon offers outstanding Greek food and also has a great wine selection! We absolutely love going there after a long week of work...to feel very well cared for!

I typically stick with fast food style Greek restaurants, but on this visit to Lincoln, we opted to go to the more upscale Parthenon, and we were not disappointed. Having been to many Greek restaurants across the United States, this is one of the best I've been to. It's low key while still being somewhat fancy, which is exactly what... More

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
