Carlos, the "multi" host/waiter/bartender was amazing. Very attentive, said hello the minute we walked in, brought us menus by the time we sat down and was helpful with suggesting food options from the menu. Very nice guy. At times it was hard to understand him or hear him, he did talk quiet and the acoustics in the bar wasn't the... More

Great food and good beer selections! They appear to have a great outdoor patio when the weather warms up!

It's a sports bar, which kinda surprised me since it's attached to the Holiday Inn. I would describe the atmosphere as "Industrial Mancave". TVs everywhere and lots of stainless steel. It's not a large restaurant, and probably not a choice for family dining, but the service I received was fast and friendly, and the good was great. I had smoked... More

The restaurant is attached to the Holiday Inn in South West Lincoln. It is trendy, but lacks content. Cheap drinks bring in the locals, but the service is spotty and you never know when the restaurant will be open regardless of what is posted on the door.

This bar/restaurant has changed owners and menus a few times and still struggles to find it's place in the market. They tried really good beer specials for a while but once they started to get a following for that they raised the prices and then people stopped coming because that's mostly all they were coming in for.
