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.

Good for first time

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.

This is a newer restaurant in southeast Lincoln. Loved the decor - very cozy with booths but we sat in the room with tables and a fireplace. Service was fast and friendly. Food was well-prepared and moderately priced.

I met a couple of business colleagues in the bar on a Monday at 5:30pm. Very few people in the place. After a short time we were asked to leave because someone 'complained' we were 'too loud'. Having been in the restaurant many times over the last 8 years, we have never been treated so poorly. We will never return.

I came here in November for my Birthday with 2 friends. I had chose the restaurant since none of us had been here yet. Sadly the food nor the service was good. 2 of us had the rotisserie chicken with mac and cheese and roasted potatoes. My other friend had a hamburger. We were surprised the restaurant was not busy...

We loved this place. The food was great. I fell in love with their prime-rib. The place can be crowded and pretty loud at times, but the food is great.

This is a really great restaurant! It's very aesthetic.The fireplace makes for a warm and comfortable setting in the indoor/outdoor eating/drinking section of the restaurant, which is located next to the bar/lounge area. The building's stone exterior beautifies the indoor/outdoor dining section. The restaurant has a wide variety of great tasting food that can fill a large appetite. Service is... More

Myself, my husband, his two sisters and their spouses, and his parents recently went to Fireworks for his mom's birthday lunch. Since it was fairly early in the day, there wasn't a large crowd for lunch. A couple of observations; waiters/waitresses have lost the skill of several things, including: taking the order from the oldest female in the group first,... More
