I went for breakfast even though I have had other meals there. The food was cooked as I ordered it and the place was clean. I really enjoyed the food.

stopped by for lunch with a couple other co workers. all I can say in the place needs to be remodeled. woodwork is worn bathroom is pretty bad, just overall the place needs to be updated. With that being said, the waitress was good, I had a club sandwich and it was good. The atmosphere takes away from the experience.... More

Ask for biscuits and gravy with very crispy bacon. Biscuit and gravy was good. But the bacon was cold and not crispy. Coffee was good

Third time trying this place. Breakfast last time was cold and not good, staff couldn't have cared less if we were there. Thought we'd try lunch. Fence dip was burnt and not good at all. Daughter is a vegetarian, ordered spaghetti with non meat sauce. Came with meat sauce and meat on it. Didn't see waiter at all after food... More

We were coming from a family funeral around 2pm. We called ahead and we're happy to here they could accommodate. 1st impression a little suspect. The staff started slow but finished strong. There were approximately 50 of us arriving randomly. We all ordered and we're all fed even offered drink refills! The menu had a large selection offer breakfast all... More

The last three times I ate there for Sunday breakfast I ordered simple scrammed eggs that came burnt. A brown haze all over the eggs. Another time I ordered the ground steak and ordered it medium rare and it was well done. We live in town so can go often and the food has been going down hill the last... More

Friendly service and food was served hot and fresh. A menu with a wide variety and something for everyone. Prices are very reasonable. The best schnitzel I've had anywhere in ages!

Once an excellent mom-and-pop-type restaurant, Daphne's seems to have gone downhill. :( The quality of the food is OK, the prices are a little high for what you get, and the service is kind of lacking.

Our schedule has our day beginning on the late side. We need to find a place that serves breakfast around 2pm. Lincoln doesn't have the typical IHOP or Denny's are the two "go-to" places when nothing else is available. Daphne's is a big step up -- a very simple place with excellent food. The service is friendly and efficient. You... More

I was driving through the state and stopped here when I got hungry. I enjoy visiting family restaurants when in traveling. The food was tasty, a Ruben sandwich, salad, pie for desert. Décor unexceptional, wait staff was attentive. The surprise was Hal Holbrook (actor) also dining there. He commented that his meal was great. Overall a good alternative to your... More
