    Had a reservation for group of 8- only about 1/2 capacity when we arrived. Staff attentive when seated but it took 20+ minutes to get our bar drink order. Didn’t bring plates for our appetizers. Had to ask for more water and other drinks. Service was good when at table. Seemed understaffed. Saw a table get up an leave due to not being waited on. Great food!!

    Nice ambience. Thursday Trivia is allot of fun. They need more or at least a better IPAs. A beer list would be nice Why does the bar run out of speciic beers so often?

    Food was great - the homemade bread/naan like bread for the Cuban and the Buffalo chicken wrap were next level good. Service was a little sporadic, causing us to wait between drinks a lot, for water, for ranch to dip the pickles in, etc.

    It wasn’t very crowded but the service was friendly, attentive, and fast. Two of us had the smash burgers and one the buffalo chicken pizza. All the food came out hot and was tasty.

    I booked the reservation for a large birthday party. They showed a very nice room but switched the reservation to a room half the size without telling me. Our personal waitress was never around to help with drinks. Forgot food there that night; I called and they told me to come pick it up. Then was told they threw it away and would make another one for me to be ready the next day. I showed up the next day and was told they would not give me the food I paid for. Overall, a horrible experience. Will not go back.

    Great atmosphere. But if you order a pizza tell them to do extra crispy. The crust is floppy if you don't. And I wasn't a fan of the sauce they use on the pizza. The cuban looked pretty good though.

    Tried Leighton's Pub for the first time. I'm happy to say that I was happy with the choice to start Date Night with my hubby there! Great food, decent drinks, excellent service. It is a bit loud so be aware that you're going to overhear the next table's conversation even if you try not to. I DO highly recommend the crab rangoon pizza. And plan on having 3 or more people with you to share the huge order of fried pickles.

    We ate outside and it was enjoyable. The inside seemed pretty noisy but then it's a "pub" so would expect noise. We all had pizza and it was good. Also the artichoke and chips; fair. I'd definitely return.

    First time there and first time for Trivia. It was HP trivia and pretty busy. Reserving a table as suggested was much needed and glad we did. Will be back and do want to check out more Trivia and Music Bingo

    Apparent relatively new operation - attractive surroundings, nice pub menu, welcoming employees. We were very disappointed with the bar operation -- suggest having a beer and no cocktails as menisque and thus pricey for what you receive.

    I recommend this new restaurant in Northeast Lincoln! They take reservations on Open Table and their wood-fired pizzas are delish! I also enjoyed my OG mojito, and my daughters’ wings and my SIL’s club sandwich looked tasty too! Dinner salad was blah … mostly just iceberg lettuce.

    Good place to eat. Enjoyed dinner. Good food and prices. Didn’t like the fact that wait staff was eager to get us to leave. Also manager opened the garage door on a cool Nebraska night and made the atmosphere cold.
