    I had reserved a table for 8 on August 15th and when we arrived we were told they never received the reservation even though I had a confirmation email. The hostess was rude and dismissive. She told me we could not be accomodated unless we wanted to sit on the patio (it was raining). So we took our party of eight and went down the street to Jerzes. The eight of us will be passing along to others not to bother with your establishment.

    It was very loud, took the waitress 20 minutes to wait on us. Serving size was small and warm. Wife's vegetables tasted funny. Went for our anniversary and couldn't even hear each other.

    This place has GREAT beer. Food has been mediocre in the past, however a new menu and a new chef seem to have made a difference. My entree was the best I had yet at this establishment.This place is still no Chicago brew pub with fabulous (foodie) food and even better beer, but I can say it is much improved.

    We had a nice time for our date night. Hadn't been there in a while. The beer was great, our server was awesome. Food...well, not so much. We both ordered the beef medalions and they were not cooked to our specifications and had a long wait.. We asked for medium and medium-rare. Both were overcooked and tough. The spinach was awesome! Our server made up for it though and told the manager, so he comped our dessert. If it wasn't for our server's efforts we would have made more of a protest about the steak. We will go back again and try something else. Hope we get the same server for sure!

    We went for a romantic dinner. We both ordered the filet special. No salad and no indication anywhere on the menu that salad would be extra. We both received approximately 2 oz of filet. It tasted good but was TINY. The man who sat at the next table heard our complaint to the manager (who couldn't have cared less). He said he was a cattleman and he'd never seen a filet so small. You would think that they would have loaded up on the sides, but there were 3 small fingerling potatoes and a few baby carrots. The waitress said people had been complaining all night about the filet, but that she couldn't tell us not to order it. She said people said they were going to McDonalds when they left. We went home hungry.

    Their beer selection is great, with a number of year-round flavors and a variety of seasonal and specialty brews. The menu isn't huge but has a nice variety. Everything we had was good. Our server was friendly, fun and efficient.

    The beer is great but the food was not so great. I had a burger that was thin and dry (tasted like a freezer burnt patty pulled straight from a deep freeze and flopped on the grill). My fiance had a tenderloin that was overcooked and dry as well. Would go back for a beer, but not for dinner

    the service was great. The beer was awesome. The food was a little disapointing. I ordered mashed potatos and really they tasted like instant potatoes, I ended up putting my blue cheese dressing on them. My husband ordered the mac & cheese and he kept adding salt & pepper which means he didn't like the meal very much.

  • Disappointed
    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 7/28/2013
    I was rather disappointed with Nebraska Brewing. I was well aware of their great beers and specifically stopped in dinner to enjoy them on a Sunday night. First thing we heard is that not all beers on the menu were available. Unfortunately they were the lighter types my girlfriend enjoys. Not good. The menu was not as big as I would have expected. Was hoping to see more in terms of steak or beef entrees. The beer cheese soup was gritty, not creamy. The cheese should have been melted down further. My girlfriends mushroom swiss steak burger was bland like it hadn't been seasoned. My mac n cheese was good. Beer was enjoyable. The Hefeweizen and Wit were enjoyable. In fact, I would only go back to try the beer. I wouldn't want to eat.

    Dined on 7/27/2013
    My son turned 21 this week and I wanted to by him a beer. He doesn't like beer that much and I'm not a big beer drinker nor am I a big drinker. So this really doesn't apply to the beer but he did get a dessert drink and that was tasted good to him. The food was very good. He had the 402 while my my wife had the barbecue burger with bacon. She really missed the coke barbecue sauce and that would have been better. Thanks for the food and service.

    NBC is often very inconsistent with their food quality in my experiences over the past 9 months. Today for lunch, the food was very good. The chicken philly is always a safe bet. a friend had a very attractive, big salad and was pleased. It's certainly a big menu. So this time, my experience was very good and i'm sure i'll return soon as there aren't enough good restaurant choices in Papillion.

    It was okay at best. We sat upstairs and felt bad for the server who had to walk up and down the stairs every time we wanted a drink refill since there wasn't a fountain machine up there. The meat was fatty but the fries and garlic dip were good; just wish i didn't have to pay extra!
