This is a pretty good Greek restaurant - very popular with families and friends. Service is fine. Not the greatest Greek food in the world, but adequate.

The family decided to try something new and was rewarded with a great meal. Everyone tried something different so we had quite the assortment to try. We were very pleased and will be back soon.

First of all, they take reservations! This is a must for our family and friends because I do not like to wait, especially with a large group after a football game in Lincoln. They were very efficient, the food was delicious and everyone was satisfied with their meals. We had 11 adults in our group.

We had a surprise birthday party for someone turning 65. It was game day in Nebraska -- which is pretty sacred. Nevertheless they delivered up a special menu to our liking (we're not very ethnic eaters) - facilitated the party of about 45 - had a game day theme for us (not their usual cultural focus) - and we had...

Amazing service & large portion sizes! I had the vegan roasted red pepper linguine. Fries were excellent and I ordered the Tzyziki dip and it was well worth it!

We stopped in for a late lunch on a Friday. We were seated immediately and our server was very friendly. We had the gyro platters, veggie moussaka, and veggie lasagna. The moussaka was excellent! We would return in the future.

We were looking forward to some authentic Greek cuisine. Ordered the flaming cheese appetizer and Greek wine and that was wonderful! The entrees left subverting to be desired. The lamb was overcooked but that was quickly, and apologetically fixed citing a new chef in training. Came back better prepared but still not as flavorful as one would hope. The spanicopita... More

We had Sunday lunch at the Parthenon today and were completely happy with our meal. We started out with Mimosas, which were huge and delicious! I ordered a thin crust Chios Pizza and added the Greek sausage, with a side Greek salad. My friend had the Spanakopita with baked acorn squash. We split a dish of Baklava ice cream for... More
