    Been going here for 6 years...our waiter Dyllan (the newly married 2 months one he said as we celebratedour 18th year) Told my husband to try the O1 sauce with his horseradish. So he did...mind blown. Best tip we've had. Great sangria last night too. Always wonderful food. Thank you

    The food was excellent! Our server and the hostess were both great - stopping to check on but not too often. We always order The Twig Montepulciano d’ Abruzzo and the Arancini - both excellent choices. We always eat at Odyssey when we are in Hastings - sometimes we make a special trip to eat there. We do wish they would open a version on Odyssey in Grand Island

    Residents of Hastings, take notice and support this place! We travel a lot and have eaten at some of the best places around the world and this place has the chance to fit into the list of the top-rated ones. All the food and drink were fantastic. We are in Hastings once a year for state softball and I hope to return next year in June!

    The Odyssey never disappoints! We go for special occasions which makes it even more special and it was our 50th wedding anniversary. There was a Happy Anniversary sign on our table, we were treated so well, our waitress was exceptional, the food was divine and the price was great! We love the Odyssey!

    This is clearly the best and highest-class restaurant in Hastings. The food is excellent, with a small yet varied menu. We both had salmon (which you'll find under the steakhouse menu), but you get the chance to "build your own" by selecting the accompaniment such as rice pilaf or grits, and the style of sauce/seasoning. Be sure to tell them about diet restrictions or occasions when making the reservation -- they DO read that. The service was excellent, and we enjoyed chatting with the server after the meal. By the way -- restaurants close early in Hastings, so plan to get there early, and they're closed on Mondays. We went on a Saturday and found they were booked up until 8.15, which meant we were still eating at 10pm closing time.

    Food and service was outstanding. Our server Dylan went above and beyond to make sure our experience was a good one. We’ve ate here multiple times and he was by far the best server we’ve ever had he was very attentive and has a great personality. The manager even stopped by at the end to make sure everything was great prior to us leaving. Definitely the perfect place to celebrate or have a date night. Thank you for taking such great care of us definitely made the night out for our anniversary a great one.

    There is a question about noise level...didn't know for sure how to answer it, b/c although it was awfully noisy inside (a large group having a great time...can't blame them or Odyssey!), and our server graciously allowed us to move outside, where it was perfect.
