“Fresh and fantastic!”
Reviewed 18 May 2012

George is awesome and always keeps things fresh. He makes his restaurant a home for every ethnic festival that crops up, complete with live entertainment. Quiet business lunches are also a joy. Don't miss the most amazing Greek salad ever!

“A Treasured Jewel In The Mid-West”
Reviewed 4 May 2012

What a phenomenal experience. Driving across country is tough enough, so finding this extraordinary family run business, that serves superb culinary delights was a true find. The owner waits on every table making sure that every diner is happy. This was the only amazing restaurant that we found on our trip from Southern California to the East Coast so far. I would come back to Lincoln just to have another delectable delight at this superb restaurant that serves New York quality food.

“BEST restaurant in Lincoln”
Reviewed 3 May 2012

If you want the best food in Lincoln ONLY eat at The Parthenon. Great soup (made fresh daily and from scratch), to die for salad (their dressing which is sold in grocery stores has no sugar), terrific fresh food (American and Greek), then finish with home-made dessert. Yum O. I eat there at least 2x a week, lunch and dinner. A real treat is their Sunday brunch menu. We've also used The Parthenon for catered events and everyone is impressed with the food. George and his family are the BEST !!!

“If You Like Greek Food, This is the Place”
Reviewed 8 March 2012

The Greek salad is outstanding. The food is authentic. Go there on a night when there is a belly dancer. Throw some dishes on the floor. Marvel at the dessert case. This is a good place to share food in order to try lots of things.
