Description: At FireWorks, everyday is a celebration of wood-fired cooking. Keeping the tradition of from–scratch recipes with a contemporary flair, we put a creative twist on classic American comfort foods. Where primal flavors burst to life, celebrate mouthwatering favorites like steak and seafood grilled over a live hickory flame, slow-roasted rotisserie chicken and prime rib (named the best in town), and hand-tossed pizzas baked to order fresh in our custom wood-fired oven. Our children’s menu offers a kid-sized celebration of wood-fired cooking and kid favorites like mac & cheese, pizza, and grilled sirloin. There is a flavor for everyone.

We live here and go out fairly often. Fireworks has the best food quality and service in town. Their consistency is great and their management staff is eager to see each and every guest happy. I love the Specialty dish Chicken Milano with broccoli - pretty healthy choice but flavor to die for - yum !

Cannot come to Lincoln, Nebraska and not have beef. Why not try the best - go to FireWorks, order rare to medium-rare. If you're going to cook the heck out of it, just poor ketchup on a charcoal briquette! This is great food. Always ask about the soup of the day, sometimes it's really really good and often unique too.

The food was very average here and I'm being kind. Service wasn't great considering the restaurant was basically empty.

The food was good. We (a party of 2) were seated at a larger table that seemed to still be a little crowded with the other tables around it (although there was only one other table with anyone seated). The waitress passed by us twice, thinking we were waiting for more. But once that was cleared up, we had a... More

I have been there 4 times. The first couple of times I went there I don't remember it being that bad but nothing exceptional. The third time I went when my parents were in town. We all thought the food was really bad. My dad, who is not very picky when it comes to food, could barely eat his ribeye.... More

We stopped here after church last night and was seated immediately (rather unusual for a Saturday night, of course the Huskers were on TV). My wife ordered the Rotisserie Chicken Salad Sandwich that included rotisserie chicken, mayo, pineapple, celery and almonds on toasted ciabatta with lettuce and tomato. I opted for the Prime Rib Sandwich which was served with au... More

We enjoyed a "girls" lunch at FireWorks. I ordered pulled pork which was excellent. The service was good as was the value. This is a restaurant to which I would return.

This is one of my favorite places to eat when I visit Lincoln. The value is unprecedented with great food and very reasonable prices. I usually get fish and it is prepared well. The rest of the food is equally good as are the desserts. I wish could wave a magic wand and get a Fireworks in Northern Cali!

This was a great restaurant. The food was very well prepared, my girlfriend and I both had fish, yellowfin tuna and Mahi Mahi. I am very picky when it comes to fish because of living on the ocean for so many years, but was very pleased with our choice. The staff was very friendly and on top of anything we... More
