Wonderful Surprise

We had tried to eat at another restaurant earlier but didn't want to wait for the 1 1/2 hrs we were greeted with. We just happened to see this place not far from our original destination. We are so glad we found it. In one word....AWESOME!. Not only was this Greek food wonderfully prepared and... read more

Our party of 6 arrived at 8 p.m. The restaurant was packed but lively. We were seated immediately and our wait staff was immediately present. Drinks were immediately served as were our appetizers. Each of us ordered a different entree. The food arrived about 15 minutes later. It arrived hot, the presentation was excellent and it was exactly as advertised.... More

We celebrated the New Year with two other couples thinking the Parthenon's take on NOLA would be fun. I should have remembered the awkward service and food from their St. Patrick's day special. They should really stick to what they know. With a too full restaurant, seating was cramped and 2 of our party of 6 did not get their... More

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

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.
