Food was ok, but not great. Burger was good, steaks were just average.

The date night special is an amazing value, yet at a restaurant that is well-equipped to impress for fine dining. Delicious, well-prepared food, great service, great atmosphere, and great location. It has become a favorite in Lincoln for us.

Server Carlee was great! Kitchen forgot some stuff and she handled it great! Seems a little expensive for what is was. But delicious!

Lovely evening visiting and a great place where people can talk. We had been here a couple of years ago and it was white tanks clothes and very elegant- apparently that has been discontinued. But still a great environment and very lovely dining experience.

My husband & I were traveling through Lincoln for the night & pleasantly pleased to have dinner here. We had the date night meal - excellent & super deal! We also enjoyed their Old Fashions (my husband had these) & the house Sauvignon Blanc. The bruschetta appetizer, salmon & strip steak were excellent & plentiful as was the blueberry bread pudding.

The quality of the food was excellent and it tasted delicious. Our waiter was very friendly and efficient. The restaurant was quiet enough to have a relaxing evening and it was easy to talk.

Took a while for the server to come to the table, but after that service was ok. My steak was over cooked but others in the party had it to their liking.

I was seated near a screaming toddler and told there were no other available tables for one which proved to be untrue. The carpet around my table was dirty. When I pointed it out I was told it would be cleaned later that night. There was no reason for me to be seated where I was since there were several empty tables. I found my server to be snotty, untruthful and rude.

Food and service were great. I wish they would have told me that when I ordered another Manhattan with Rye instead of Evan Williams the cost was going from $8.50 to $24.50. This was our first time at JTK and we will be back but I will be smarter next time....

The main course was ready to be served only 2-3 minutes after we had received our salads, so they took the dinners back to the kitchen for 15-20 minutes under heat lamps we assume. Once main courses were served the fish and vegetables were rather dry. The steak was of below average quality.
Drinks for dinner did not arrive until meal was nearly over. It seems as if the restaurant was under-staffed.

It was an early dinner so was still very quite. Staff was friendly and seated us right away. Food was fantastic, we had the salmon and the mahi mahi. I would recommend both of those, and every dish we saw leave the kitchen looked fantastic. Great whiskey selection available

My wife and I have had some great experience at JTK's this is why I picked it to celebrate her 60th birthday...it was not mention by anyone. The cocktails were very subpar and the server was very young and inexperienced...example she brought two different size wine glasses to table. She also de-cantered the wine in the back and so I hope I got the wine I ordered and never offered to refill our wine glass...we did it ourselves.

great food! Drinks are strong (lots of options)! Atmosphere was great! We really wanted to go on a date we could get dressed up and not feel out of the loop. This was the place! Our server was very kind, you could tell she was having a bad night though- especially since the client at the bar was being particularly rude to her (was loud about it) we totally understood why she seems sad. Great place for a date night especially if you want to get dressed up :) It was overall a great experience!

I ordered a Nebraska ribeye. Over half of it was fat. I mentioned it to the waitress and she mentioned it to the kitchen. A rude man, supposedly the one in charge for the night, came out and informed me that ribeye is a fatter cut and it looked like there was enough meat for me. He continued to argue with me that they only serve the best. Well if that is there best no one should go there in my opinion. By the way the waitress was very nice and I left a healthy tip.

Great food for our evening out! Spinach & artichoke egg rolls were delicious and the Mahi Mahi & steak were cooked to perfection. Love their selection of Scotch as well.
