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.

Great food and atmosphere

We drive in from omaha to try something new. It was worth the drive! We had crab cakes, salmon, and prime rib. All were cooked great. The salad dressings were homemade and very good. Interesting cocktail options. Would do the drive again!!!

Checked on our table several times during our dinner to make sure everything was peefect or if we needed anything. Thank you. Now the food.... Very good. Everything cooked... More

Although owned and operated by the same folks that have the Lazlo's in Lincoln the food does not compare. The service was very good but we were disappointed in our food. I had a Club Sandwich that was pretty much tasteless, my friends had a Prime Rib sandwich and a Chicken salad sandwich that they didn't even finish it was... More

Since FireWorks is located AWAY from the stadium, we were able to get a table without waiting. Yay! The atmosphere is warm and cheery, we had excellent wait staff, and all of us were able to find great selections on the menu including me, and I'm gluten-free. They publish their menu online so I was able to know in advance... More

This casual and very tasteful decor makes it very comfortable for family and business associates to dine in. This smoky smell around the exterior of the restaurant matches the tremendously tasty dishes. I especially love the ribs - tender and seasoned with excellent BBQ sauce. My brother-in-law says that the salmon is always an excellent dish.

Fish taco were wonderfull also. Beer that they make are always a good choice too. I would highly suggest it here if u... More

We met friends for dinner here and our friends have never been here before. We have been here several times and this was the worst time. I ordered chicken parmesan and the chicken was rubbery, not moist and kinda burnt. The broccoli was cold and under cooked. Our friends food was good but nothing special. Our waitress never asked us... More

We loved the atmosphere and the employees. The drinks were amazing. The only complaint we had was the calamari was terrible. It was not cooked properly resulting in it being rubbery. Other than that the food was great! We will definitely go back.

We stopped for lunch on a weekend when we were in town. The atmosphere was very appealing, the seating comfortable,and our server was very attentive. The have a large rotisserie and I believe most of the meats, except steaks, are cooked that way. Our choices for lunch were the pulled pork and rotisserie chicken. Both were juicy and flavorful.
