Food and service was great. The only thing that I would have a problem with is I ordered a drink that they could not produce because there was not the proper ingredients at the Bar. A simple fix in my opinion
Very important to people that want fine dining. Feel free to call me if you have questions Bill Kuhlman 402-643-5654. Overall I was happy. In this time of pandemic and labor difficulties you are hitting A home run. Keep up the good work.

Had a fantastic evening out. Happy to have chosen JTK. Had the bruschetta and firecracker shrimp for appetizers and they were both great. As a matter of personal preference I favored the bruschetta just because it had plenty of fresh basil. For our mains, my husband had the gnocchi and it was absolutely delicious. Fantastic dish. I got the ribeye with horseradish butter, which came with potatoes and asparagus. The steak was cooked to a perfect temperature, with a nice light char on the tender ends. For dessert, we were stuffed but took a bread pudding and crème brûlée to go. When I ate the crème brûlée 3 hours later there was still a wonderful crunch to the sugared top and the custard inside was perfect. Service was prompt and friendly. Very nice evening.

We dined here on Saturday night. Reservations at 8:00pm. No problems getting seated, only a few other tables were occupied. What struck us first was the impressive display of Bourbon and Scotch whiskey/whisky. We had a nice table for two in the back. The menu was easy to read and understand. For drinks we chose from the vast list. The focaccia bruschetta was fresh and flavorful. The Caesar salad was very good. I had the special “herb crusted rack of lamb over pumpkin risotto.” My wife had a very nice German style pork cutlet over risotto. To cap things off we had the blueberry bread pudding. All in all a delightful night. Would strongly recommend. The waitstaff were great! They are set up to handle large groups if needed. On the way out we had to stop at the bar to puck out one more ounce of a special whisky.

We were excited to try this spot and came from out of town. Unfortunately the wait for food was an hour and a half (party of 9) and when it came most of the dishes were room temp. The restaurant was never even half full for the two hours we were seated but service was slow for drink and water refills.

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.

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.

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
