I recently went to the Parthenon with 6 family members. We had a roasted red pepper cheese appetizer and all had a variety of entrees. Everything from the salads to the gyros to the seafood was well prepared. The staff was really attentive. Only problem...we called ahead for reservations (probably wouldn't have needed them, as the place was never full).... More

Ate at the Parthenon while staying in the area. Service was friendly and attentive. Had the Gyro Platter with salad and Greek potatoes. Salad was huge and delicious, could have been a meal by itself. Gyro seemed a little dry but was tasty. Potatoes we good. Nice place for Greek food.

Parthenon has always been one of my favorite places in Lincoln. They have your Greek staples like gyros and falafel which are good but the more specialty Greek dishes are why I go. Their Dolmathes, grape leaf wrapped meat and saganaki is by far my favs. You also can't beat their Sunday Morning Brunch Omelettes! The Owners are very involved... More

I have experienced wonderful Greek food in many places, including Melbourne, Australia. So I was very happy to be introduced to Parthenon, a family owned and operated Greek restaurant in Lincoln. The atmosphere is very nice, great friendly service, and excellent Greek cuisine! I love the fact that they offer many of their family's special dishes! We had the Roasted... More

We were given some free gift cards for this restaurant so we tried it twice. I am not a fan of greek food so it wasn't very good for us. The service was good and the food is ok for the right person.

We were traveling through Lincoln and found this gem on trip advisor. We started with saganaki. It was fried to melty perfection, the flames doused with fresh lemon. The pita bread is made in house and is flatter then I'm used to, but tastier as well. For dinner I had moussaka offered with to sides. This was a beautifully made... More

Reviews were good so we stopped while in Lincoln. Big mistake !! The restaurant was not busy but service was only mediocre. Pastitio was a large portion but swimming in watery liquid. Pasta was not drained. Server expressed an attitude when I mentioned how wet the Pastitio was. Manager came out to say that is how they cook it to... More

I adore Greek food so my expectations are high. This place did not disappoint! They had lovely kids menu options for my toddler while I enjoyed some darn good Greek food. Service was great and attentive. Zero complaints here!

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.
