The restaurant looks very plain from the outside, but the inside is surprisingly spacious and comfortable. The wine list was decent and the variety of foods better. The wait staff is extremely courteous and accommodating. We were a group of eight and I did not taste the other guests' dishes but I would say most of our companions enjoyed their... More

I was here for a group event and the service and group/event room was excellent. A few days later my twin brother went there for dinner with our mother and two others and he provided me with a similar highly positive unsolicted comment his experience.

Thanks for making this evening so much more than "just" amazing food. The food WAS really amazing! To start we had Spinach and Artichoke dip and The house-smoked salmon rillette. The steaks were perfectly cooked... even my rare filet! Great wine list that included one of our favorites, Goldeneye 2013 Pinot Noir. Don't miss this gem when you're in Lincoln!

The Venue has a modern up-beat vibe. The food is always amazing. We love their pizza, they have the best steaks in town, my favorite Hungarian Wild Mushroom soup, my favorite Tuscan Mule cocktail, but I can hardly get away from their salmon - it's the best! Sometimes I'll switch it up and get the Three by Sea which is... More

I live 15 miles from this place and went there for the 1st time. It was fabulous. Food, atmosphere, and service was great! Don't know why it took me so long to visit. I will be back soon.
