    Amazing experience with great food & service. Somewhere over the rainbow- adult beverage 10/10 cheese curds 10/10 Mac and cheese with roll (my 16 year old said this was the best roll he’s ever had!!) 10/10 chicken and waffles 10/10 disco inferno burger 10/10 Fairly constant drink service, never an empty cup, got all of our items quickly and the service was 10/10. With the experience this was an unforgettable meal and bill was lighter than I imagined. Very pleased all around!

    We went here for the first time for a birthday party. The staff was all very accommodating and put on an excellent show. My kids had a great time and were so excited when they sang a song they requested from Encanto. We will definitely return!

    We were a party of six doing our weekly lunch with friends. And Also celebrating at 64th and 50th wedding anniversary for two of the couples. The food was spot on and very plentiful. The entertainment was great singing songs that we all knew and could sing to - possibly even dance to. Highly recommend this for families or friends for good wholesome entertainment.

    My kids really enjoyed the singing. The performers were awesome. The staff was very friendly. A few of the menu items were a tad pricey but I think that is the same with every restaurant. Screamers is definitely a place I wouldn't mind returning to.

    No Stars! Had booked a reservation and arrived 10 min early, was told we would be seated at our scheduled time. We proceeded to bar as instructed to wait. We sat down ordered drinks, Meredith was tending bar and made good drinks (about $16 for 2 drinks). Instead of seating us they started the show and we seen people without reservations come in and seated in a booth about the time we should have. I do not recommend whatsoever and will never return to establishment.

    We had another great visit to Screamers. The singing servers provided so much entertainment for Father's Day diners. There was a glitch so the expected prime rib was not available but they provided discount for a return trip when we can have the prime rib. We had other steak specials, both of which were very good. Rib Eye cooked perfectly. Hubby really liked the Blue Strip and Scallop. Overall a very enjoyable time at one of our favorites.

    Easy reservation process through Open Table. Arrived to a pleasant atmosphere. The food was really good and appropriate temperature. The front of house and servers all took turns singing tunes for the diners. Billy Joel, Beauty and the Beast, Frank Sinatra. It was a fun night!

    We always enjoy Screamers. The food is always great...had 3 different dinners and we were all satisfied with our choices. The servers are friendly, personable and very accommodating. Plus the bonus is they are talented singers/entertainers too. It is a delightful place Lincoln is blessed to have. Nothing compares!

    The service was great and the 🎤 singing was amazing. They sang Disney songs for the little girls and called them their “back-up” dancers after they danced on stage. It was very interactive and fun. The fish & chips were delicious! We would definitely recommend Screamers for any occasion!

    Our family had a wonderful time! Requests were sung, food was eaten, and fun was had. We would suggest this as a must visit for a unique dining experience. You can eat at any restaurant, but at Screamers you get to eat while listening to live singing!

    The garlic smashed potatoes were extremely spicy and not at all what I expected! They were almost black balls of potatoes that were slightly squished down. When we mentioned it they didn’t offer to get us something different (and it was obvious none of us ate them) I was also allergic to something in the restaurant. The singing was great though!

    My daughter had been looking forward to coming for a while and I did not feel the entertainment or service met the personal reviews I had heard from others. While there we only saw 2 performances. The waitress instantly brought our check when we said no to dessert and then upon leaving I could see her chatting with another co-worker about us. It felt rude and even my daughter noticed. We definitely will not be back.

    The food was mostly cold. Very odd combinations of what was served. Scrambled eggs, biscuits and gravy, roast beef, fish,waffles, roast pork, ham, and ring sausages. Green bean salad, brussell sprout salad and lettuce salad with a pasta salad. Pastries were all dry, hard, and none of thw food was even close to being what a chef would make. Chef should have been embarrassed. Basically, all bought pre made or pre-processed and low quality. Not worth the money at all and I would never go again for the mothers day buffet. What a rip off !! Music was good and I enjoyed that.
