    We ordered the nachos very bad choice . A ton of chips but no toppings a few little tomato pieces a little guac and little sour cream and hard shreds of cheese not melting at all. Whoever thought these were nachos were sadly mistaken. The jalapenos were dry and scarce. Please try the nachos at buffalo wings and rings then you will know what real nachos taste like!!!

    I appreciate that they offer beer samples & pairings with what you order. Their staff are seriously knowledgable about the food & beverages. Might want them to mention that they do have a full bar, because those if us who don't drink beer might come more often for a drink after work, for example.

    Table was not ready when we got there. Ordered water with lemon no lemon. Took over 30 minutes to get our food which is not acceptable over the lunch hour. We had to have our server check on our order. The two of us who ordered Reubens the bread was so over toasted made it hard to eat. They did comp the Reubens.

    I really enjoyed the ambience of this place - the dark wood with the pub décor and tons of different craft & domestic beers on tap to choose from. I went there to lunch with several co-workers and made the reservation online, which was very easy. Our server was fun and energetic. She even gave us complimentary "boots" of their delicious rootbeer. I'd like to go back and try out the round table they have with the four taps hooked right up to it. You just pay per ounce and they said that if you call them a week ahead of time, they'll hook up the kegs of your choice. I ordered the Baja Turkey Burger and it was pretty good - a little too much seasoning. The sweet potato fries were excellent.

    The staff is very knowledgeable on the menu and beer pairings, but even if you do not drink beer, the food it is delicious. It's not the same old thing as at hundreds of other pubs (yet not so far from what you know, so just try their take on any classic).

    Great service and extremely accomodating. I had my son's graduation from UNL lunch at Miller Time. Last experince at a local restuarant in the areas after going to great lengths to plan was a major disappointment. Miller Time did not ..were ready to seat us at our arrival and reservation time. Our server was outstanding and the food good. I am very hard to please when it comes to service, but this made me very happy. Thank you for making our day great!

    I have been to Miller Time several times and, while it is certainly not my favorite restaurant, it's decent. I do think the quality & service has been going down since this place first opened. I ordered the soup + salad. The soup comes with a pesto swirl + shredded cheddar which made the soup stringy and difficulty to eat politely. The side salad was a waste of money. It was basically bagged salad mix with a few pieces of arugula thrown in. The balsamic dressing was good at least. The service was very poor. When one person asked for more water, the waitress came back with a refill and all the other water glasses away. Given the descent in quality since this place opened, I probably won't be coming back soon.

    Not a fan of cheap domestic beers, the name "Miller Time" would have kept me from even thinking of patronizing this place. The connection with the Cornhusker swayed me to try it though, and I'm glad I did. They do have a good selection of "better beers," good enough for a beer snob like myself, and some great food to go with it. Wait staff was attentive and my wife and I enjoyed our meal.

    It was a first-time visit for both me & my guest, both locals who wanted to check it out before catching a Sunday matinée. Average sports bar fare, but the presentation (plating) was nice. Although we didn't have drinks, there seemed to be a decent selection. As for the food quality, one side of my patty melt was soggy & my friend's burger was undercooked. We both requested medium for our burgers, but hers was clearly medium rare. Our waitress was quirky, fun & attentive. Prices are high for what's being served, but not outlandish considering it's inside a hotel. I'd recommend Dempsey's, which isn't too far away, for out-of-towners who want something similar, but want a more authentic downtown Lincoln food scene experience.

    The food was very good. It took a while for us to get our food, and we didn't see the waitress very much. Not sure if the order was turned in right away or not because many others that followed us in got their food first. No attempt was made to apologize. However, I shall dismiss this because I shall hope that it's an isolated incident. I would go again hoping for better service. The Wisconsin Cheese Curds were very tasty as was the marinara sauce. I had the Breakfast Burger, and it was pretty good. I had to get past the thought of egg on hamburger, but it worked. Onion rings are huge and down right good!

    This is a sports bar. It's fairly noisy, but that's to be expected. The seating and booths are nice and I'd rate the food as better than average for a sports bar. The beer selection is better than average, although certainly not anything special. The service was on the slow side, although not so much that it made for a bad evening. Given its location, I see this as probably being more of a lunch place, but we have only had dinner there.

    Had supper there on a busy Friday evening. We were able to make a reservation just a few hours ahead of arrival (thanks, Open Table), were seated immediately, and our server Micah was prompt, friendly, attentive, and well-versed in the menu. In spite of the number of diners, our food came out promptly. My companion's order was done incorrectly by the kitchen, and Micah was quick to get the matter corrected. All in all, it was an excellent experience.

    Food was served warm or room temp - not hot. Some food was under-cooked. I don't want my beer served in a glass boot - unless I am in Munich on Oktoberfest. Not eager to go back. Kitschy. They are more focused on entertaining you than serving you quality food.

    I was really excited to go to Miller Time Pub. I wasn't totally disappointed with the experience but I wasn't thoroughly impressed either. The food was actually really good with the exception of my burger being overdone and what I thought was a pretty small portion for my wife's pasta. I tried a couple of good beers but they were out of one I really wanted to try. Sometimes our server was very attentive and other times, it's as if we didn't exist. I think if they would tweak a few small things, Miller Time Pub can be very successful.

    Several members of our party ordered burgers either medium well or well done. None of these burgers were cooked as ordered . . . they were all too rare. We had waited so long to get our food that we did not have time to send it back. The cheese curds were great though.

    This was the second time eating at this restaurant in a week. The food was not quite as good as our first visit. It was busier so maybe they aren't yet up-to-speed on handling crowds. The fizzy yellow beer prices are good but if you want a better beer (Guinness, Smithwicks, etc.) you will pay for it. The prices for these beer selections are on the high side. The server on this visit was great but with both visits we did notices that it takes a little too long to get drinks from the bar. I like this place for location and variety on the menu so I hope they will get better with the food and service.

    This was the first time going .... It was great! Food was awesome! Plenty of it for the cost too. They did mess up on the order of my friends meal but they quickly fixed the problem and then some. Perfect place to eat in downtown Lincoln, NE. Strongly recommend making reservations through their online reservation page. Gets busy at lunch time. Have not been to this place during the evening time but I am sure it is just as busy if not more so.

    4 adults and 2 kids enjoyed a nice "burger" evening. Good wait staff (Xavier) Prompt seating (had reservation thru on line) Food arrived fairly quickly considering this was second week of being opened. Adults all enjoyed their burgers. I thought the Burnt Ends burger was especially good. Great beer selection but they do need a separate listing of what is available.

    We've been there twice now and both times have had really fun servers. I liked my particular food choice better the first time but overall good food! Many choices! The grilled cheese and tomato soup is yummy yummy! Entrees good portion value. Appetizers and desserts maybe a little small for price. ( ie tot nachos and bread pudding). Will definitely be back!
