We frequently dine at the Lodge at Wilderness Ridge . . . it's close to our home and the food is terrific! On a recent Friday evening, my wife and I both chose the Fish & Chips and we were very, very satisfied with our selection!

The Lodge has been our favorite Lincoln dinner spot since it opened, the go to place when visitors were in from out of town. It was always very good, but something has changed. I was there with a family friend and my wife over Thanksgiving, and again on a recent Friday night. I noted many new staff, and the food... More

We ate supper here on our anniversary. Recommended by the hosts at Wunder Roost B & B which was nearby. We had a complimentary dessert and delicious smoked beer due to a bit of a wait we encountered. Would love to go there during the day and I bet the views of the course are beautiful.

We'd ate here many times and we had our wedding reception here. Food was great, and the service it wonderful. They were easy to work with for our wedding and everything went smoothly the night of. Their Sunday Brunch Buffet is awesome, worth the trip, especially if you can sit outside on the patio which overlooks the golf course.

This was a first time visit to Wilderness Ridge. The building is beautiful and the dining area is wonderful. It was a great morning so we sat on the balcony which was spectacular. The food options were good and plentiful. The wait staff was very helpful and friendly.

Such a disappointment. A colleague and I visited the Lodge at Wilderness Ridge for lunch during the week. The building is beautiful and the dining area and bar area are both spectacular. While the parking lot was full, there were few patrons in the restaurant and bar. If an event was taking place in one of the meeting rooms, it... More

We've been to Wilderness Ridge a number of times for brunch. In the past it has been very good. This time I feel I am being generous in rating it average. The options are fairly good, omelets made to order, waffles, as well as breakfast meats, eggs, and lunch items - including prime rib. The problem is that most items... More

While the Lodge at Wilderness Ridge is located almost in our backyard, we don't frequent it enough (according to me). But, when we do, we are always satisfied! This time, my wife ordered the Quesadilla with beef and guacamole and I ordered the Barbecue Burger. We both opted for the Sweet Potato Fries, which are always spectacular! Thanks to Maddie... More

We live close by and have eaten at the Lodge a few times, we love the upscale rustic atmosphere in the building, as well as the dining overlooking the golf course on the deck (most outdoor eating in Lincoln has you looking at a parking lot or a busy street). The food is sometimes pretty good, but I have had... More

We celebrated our first wedding anniversary at the Lodge last night and it was perfect. My husband is a member at the golf club here yet we seldom eat there. It was the place we had our second date so it seemed appropriate. We sat outside on the expansive, scenic deck and enjoyed our cocktails (my Grey Goose martini, dry/dirty... More
