This was a Sunday brunch for 4 - restaurant was not (yet) crowded, we all sat in a nice booth by the window and service was cheerful, with constant replenishment of ice tea and soft drinks. With tax and tip, everything came out to $20 per person. I ordered the "Hearty Omelet" with caramelized onions and a little salad/relish on the side: attractive presentation, but this was an "Egg Beaters" omelet poured out of a box into a form, so it came looking like airline food. Why do tit this way when it is so easy to do a really good omelet? Another person had the burger, which they reported as good, but not great. Seems like they have all the elements here (good space, good location, etc) but they need to make sure that what comes out of that kitchen really has a little flair and inventiveness, not just a short order cook's version.

Located on Linconld Rd, 5 Napkin is a great place to people watch while enjoying a casual meal. We went for lunch and had the skirt steak tacos that were very good! They also have a beer list with great choices. The service was OK but the waitress was busy with way too many tables.

This was our first time eating at the 5 Napkin Grill. They do have a reservation system on their website, but we arrived 30 minutes before our reservation time, and they gave us a table right away with no delay at all. There is ample outdoor seating which is covered, but we sat inside. The restaurant has friendly service, but it can be a little slow at times. Water glasses take awhile to get refilled, etc. Just allow extra time to eat, and it'll all work out. Food is amazing. I recommend the Happy Hour $2 sliders, and for dessert, definitely the espresso brownie sundae! It's amazing...and huge! Two people can definitely share this sundae. :) It's fine for all ages. Several families with small children were there, as well as a family with a newborn. Great music there also, and big windows for people watching.

I stopped twice in one week, once I was hungry and the other time not so much. I asked my waiter for something light yet filling he recommended tacos the first time and they were wonderful. The second time I was there I wanted a burger, the burger was excellent and along with a beer was just what I needed. Both experiences were very enjoyable and the food arrived quickly
You have the choice of eating outside on Lincoln Mall and watch the people and enjoy the weather, or inside to the comfortable booths and tables. The menu has something for everyone is you want to eat light or hearty. They have a nice beer selection. The atmosphere is great for casual meetings for a beer or more semi-formal dinner with friends. I will go back again
