Everything on the menu is great. The bartenders are the best too! Every time I'm in Lincoln, I'm at the Blue Orchid.

The food is awesome and the atmosphere is nice. The service is also always great and they have a very good martini/drink menu to pick from.

“Should be excellent...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 May 2012

We have been to Blue Orchid many times and the food is, without a doubt, excellent. Consistent, delicious, interesting. The cocktails are fantastic as well. Unfortunately the service is slow and the time between ordering and receiving food is usually painfully slow. Table turn times are horrible so we frequently have to wait 45-60 minutes for a table. With a reservation we've waited up to 30 minutes. I love the food and BO but really wish they'd address the ongoing issues with timing.

“Highly Recommend”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 May 2012

Incredible Food, Great Cocktails, Decent Wine List. Service is hit or miss. Some of the best I've ever had, some of the worst I've ever had. Still would highly recommend.
