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.

“crowded feeling but better staff”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2014

The place still has seating that will leave very little space - if looking for a nice "date spot", this might not be your place... tables are too close together and the area is noisy.
Also, the staff was nice this time, but they weren't aware of the "change in the cole slaw recipe. Odd

“First visit-awesome”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2014

Our first time to eat at Fireworks. Food was excellent, service was awesome. We had a steak and salmon. Salmon was absolutely the best ever. Roasted potatoes and salad really good. We would recommend to any of our friends.

“Worth a trip”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2014

Fireworks was a bit out of the way from downtown Lincoln, but it was worth the trip. It is a little fancy but not to much. The food was good, however the brisket was more like roast. Burgers are great,. portions were very large. The place was extremely busy, but they offer call ahead seating for small groups so we got right in. Service was a little slow and had trouble getting water filled and desert served. I would recommend checking it out.

“Best kept secret in Lincoln”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2014

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 !
