So overall, this was a good experience. I would go back. My boyfriend and I went on Valentines Day. Their listed number was almost always busy. When I finally got through, the lady I spoke to was rude and cut me off mid sentence to ask how many in my party. Then told me to just call back when we... More

We had both a chicken and beef entre. Both were very good, even a bit unusual. Salad was exceptional. Unfortunatley, we went on a Saurday night and the place was mobbed. Many tables were occupied by generally young people and both the noise and activities were out of control. Wait staff did the best they could, but service was somewhat... More

Good variety of food choices. I had their brisket sandwich with a baked potato, spouse had a sirloin which included salad and side. Are food was good. They make their own beer which is good. Nice atmosphere and service. We had deserts which were as good as you get.

Had the pasta San Francisco. it was good, but the mussels had an odor. Probably should have sent it back. I have had other good meals there in years past. I guess we were just too far from San Francisco.

I apologize for the mussels. We pride ourselves on making sure everyone departs our establishment happy, therefore we would have gladly remade the dish or prepared something different. We hope you'll look us up again next time your in Lincoln. More

Our evening at Fireworks with friends was very pleasant. Our server was amazing and so friendly. He was very attentive without being intrusive. The food was excellent. I had Tuscan Chicken and I would not have changed a thing about it. Others at the table felt the same about their items. From start to finish, it was a very pleasant... More

We met here for out girls' night holiday evening. The atmosphere is relaxed and the decor is warm and inviting. The steak is very good! You can ask for the free cornbread and I would recommend it. Yummy! I had steak and veggies, while the steak was done just right my veggies were cool when they arrived. I'm not sure... More

I want to really like this place, I like the atmosphere in the lounge, the "screened in porch" area, and the restaurant proper. However, I have eaten there probably half a dozen times, and each time my meal was fine, good, edible, but nothing I thought was great or that I would really like to come back there again for,...

Charles - I am sorry to read about your unpleasant experience at FireWorks. We're usually on top of our game, but sometimes we have an off day. Regardless, neglectful and lazy staff is not tolerated by management. I assure you this will be addressed. I encourage you to come back, so we can show you that we operate under much... More

Great drinks! They have great steaks. I got the top sirloin styled with brandied peppercorn sauce, it was delicious! Their chicken entrees are also wood smoked and delicious too!
