What a treat! After two friends told us that this place is worth the 60-mile drive, we had to go. We're so glad we did! It was the nicest, most tastefully decorated Greek restaurant we'd ever visited.

Our server, Brittany, did a great job. Her suggestions were spot-on and much appreciated. We started with a spread and warm pita sampler. It was delish! All house-made, fresh, and tasty. The warm pita was addictive.

Husband had a steak kabob with rice and zucchini fries. He loved the flavors and fried zucchini, as it had been months since he'd last eaten anything fried.

I had the blackened tilapia pita. I wasn't too hungry, so this was perfect for me. It was a smaller portion (by their standards), but quite generous by mine. It was packed with flavor. I ate every bite.

We are looking forward to our next trip to Lincoln and our next meal at the Parthenon.

The menu is varied with everything you could possibly want in a Greek restaurant. I would go if the only thing they offered was the Greek side salad. It is way beyond a "side" and always fresh and delicious. The atmosphere is casual and the entertainment is fun. (Check ahead to see if it is a special night . . . belly-dancing, wine-pairing, etc.) No matter how busy it is, they never make you feel rushed and the owner usually stops by the table to say hello and make sure you're happy with your meal. Feel proud to take out-of-town friends for a hometown treat.

We've been going to the Parthenon since it opened. In all my trips I've only had one visit where the service and food wasn't outstanding. The braised lamb shank is easily one of the best meals in Lincoln, The salads are huge and always great. The deserts are worth every penny. Get the Baklava ice cream!

We ventured out to this southside restaurant after perusing TripAdvisor for suggestions. The friendly service and attentiveness of the entire staff is truly European and was just right; not distant, yet not hovering or ubiquitous. Unfortunately, we left no room for dessert and opted not to bring something home for later. The casual atmosphere and the unhurried dining experience did bring back fond memories of my days abroad, not the 'turn the tables' experience of so many American restaurants.
