Love their gyros! The saganaki appetizer is great as well, they flambé it tableside! Good service, but not always knowledgeable about wine pairings. Good for a nice dinner out on the town.

Our family of four enjoyed a delicious dinner and casual atmosphere at Parthenon. The Greek styled menu is big, options are great and prices appropriate. The only “bump in the road” for us was after receiving a nice wine menu we inquired about a wine...More

Wonderful Greek salad started out our meal, with their house dressing that is also available in local groceries. Spanakopita was Opa! Side selections for each entrée were not run-of-the-mill, but instead were gourmet; I enjoyed uniquely-seasoned, broiled grouper, Greek potato, and roasted asparagus with garlic...More

Great place. This is my go to place. Food is always great and service outstanding. Love the menu with the Greek staples but daily specials are incredible. Always a gourmet offering. Best kept secret in Nebraska!
