My wife had a crab ravioli dish. It wasn't very good; in fact, I thought it was inedible. I had a mediocre cob salad. The soup (shrimp bisque or chowder) was O.K. but too salty. Service was prompt and efficient but not very friendly. Neither was the person at the front door who conveyed our seating options to us. The... More

One of my favorites in Lincoln. Always great food at reasonable prices. Service is always above average. Only issue with this spot is parking lot is often full. Bar is more than adequate to spell your wait for a table if needed.

So disappointed - visited here for a family birthday celebration and it was a disaster. My prime rib was cold and see-through - the thinnest piece of beef I have ever been served! Another family member's burger bun was charred but the burger was under-cooked. The chicken pizza was inedible - tried a slice truly no flavor at all. When... More

Fireworks is a favorite of mine. We've taken friends and coworkers here. Their varied menu seems to please everyone and there is a nice ambiance. Servers are always knowledgeable and attentive. My husband and I like to split a woodfired pizza and try their crafted beers. I am also in love with their carrot jalapeno bisque.

Delicious food, the ribs fell off the bone and the happy hour prices made it even that more fun. Craft Brews were fun to try & the seasonal one was worth every penny. In the past I've enjoyed their cappuccino Stout, peanut butter ale and black and blue berry.

Well let's see, kinda hard to review this restaurant in the traditional way. This is a place that we have been to many times in the past, for many years. So, even though we had not visited in a while, we decided to celebrate our 31st anniversary at Fireworks. The food was a mixed review. My Maui Tacos were very... More

Two burgers ordered at our table and both were so dry the meat crumbled. It had bacon added and it had been seared to the burger and was tasteless. Skimpy cheese and it was just plain the worst burger ever. Thyme did not charge us but the manager assured us they new what they were doing so I'm quite sure... More

Our family has always enjoyed this place and the popularity is growing. It is nice that they have call ahead seating. I would absolutely order the crab dip, it comes with wonton chips that are great even on their own. Always enjoy the voodoo chicken and bbq brisket. The macaroni and cheese as a side option is a must try.

This place is nothing short of amazing. Sunday night 7 pm. Walked in got seated immediately. Service was great. Our server took our drink order within 30 seconds of being seated. Drinks were served quickly. Our waiter took our food order and 2 minutes later had our salads. Shortly after finishing our salad our steaks showed up cooked to perfection.... More
