My boyfriend and I enjoy eating here, especially on Sunday nights. The food is amazing, and the atmosphere is excellent. The Parthenon supports local artists and dancers, too, by booking them for entertainment on some nights. I love this restaurant!

On a recent trip to watch the Husker's football game our relatives took us to the Parthenon for dinner. Being from Baltimore we have many great Greek restaurants to choose from and have been to Greece too. With our experience, plus me being a chef I think I know good Greek food when I see it, but was surprised to... More

The Parthenon is consistently good food and service. I have enjoyed everything that I have tried there - quality Greek food!! They have also paired with Good Life Fitness to offer a healthy menu so I can go out to eat there without feeling guilty because I know that I can order a meal that is healthy! Fun place for...

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

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
