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!

My husband, myself and friend had lunch celebrating her belated birthday on April 13.
We started our meal with the spinach artichoke dip which is excellent. Barrie, brought it out bubbling hot with just the right amount of brown. They served it with two pieces of bread and ample chips for three.

The luncheon trio is the best buy in Lincoln. My husband had the crab bisque, salad and Prime Rib sandwich for $10.00. His favorite the meatloaf sandwich was not on the menut this time. He did enjoy the Prime Rib. My friend and I had the chicken salad with Dijon cranberry pecan dressing with bacon on small croissant. It is amazing and a very generous serving. I had the Hungarian mushroom soup and salad with it. My friend had the same chicken salad, but, she had the house soup chicken tortilla which she enjoyed too.
Barrie, kept our water glasses filled and kept checking to see if all was o.k. She gave
wonderful service.

Our only problem was that much as we wanted to be tempted with their wonderful desserts we were all too full.

We will return soon.

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 scallops, salmon, and shrimp. It's always delicious! Ordering the Crème Brulee is always a must! It's a great place to go for a special evening or when you want to count on having a wonderful meal for lunch or dinner.
