                  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.

                  Kevin and team do an Amazing job serving up food, bringin the energy, engaging the patrons and SINGING..! Even scan the code at your table to provide a "real-time" song request. They got everything from Disney to Nat King Cole to Elvis to Beyoncé...The food, Top of the line and amazing value. Pretzel buns and bacon jam to die for. Drinks are affordable and very well made.

                  Wonderful singers!! Service was good and the food was delicious!! We stumbled upon this place when planning a birthday party for our 10 year old daughter. She loved it! They sang happy birthday and even took a song request. This isn’t just for kids: my wife and I enjoyed it plus the singing held the kids attention. There was an anniversary being celebrated by a couple in their 60s - it truly is for all ages. I highly recommend it!!

                  fun place to take our out-of-town guests to, as it is a unique experience. waitstaff are attentive, friendly, competent, AND they sing very well! sometimes they will gamely take on a request. (teagan, your first time performing "since u been gone" was impressive, especially on those high notes!) food is excellent and plated nicely. this is a place for a special treat.

                  The food was great and the atmosphere was fun. However, we were turned off as we ordered a drink after dinner and were basically asked to leave because of the next reservation. We were having a good time and wanted to have a drink and hang out. That really left a bad taste in our mouth.

                  Hello Shari, Thank you for your message we appreciate your visit. We continue to struggle to keep our doors open as we continue to navigate Covid. We allot 1.5 hours for dining, only enforce when others are waiting for seating. We understand that the entertainment increases the desire to hang longer, however the business could never survive if everyone was allow to stay as long as desired. We apologize if you felt slighted in any way. That was not the intent. Thanks for your understanding.

                  This was not our first time to screamers. However it was our very first time eating the food. Our food and service were both amazing I would definitely recommend to my friends.

                  We ate here for a different experience. The entertainment was excellent and the food was very good. Best cheesesteak since I was in Philadelphia. Overall it exceeded our expectations. We plan to eat here on our next visit to Lincoln.

                  It was my first time at Screamers and I took my husband, daughter and her boyfriend and my granddaughter. We all loved it! The food was delicious, the singing was great. I think my only issue was that it was pretty loud. We were to the right of the stage and it was nearly impossible to carry on a conversation with the people at the table. But we were there for the entertainment, so I guess I shouldn't complain! Oh, and the Italian cream cake was absolutely scrumptious!!! Highly recommended!!!

                  Fred was both an attentive server AND a fabulous performer. We had a great evening. The two female singers (don't recall their names, sorry) were also star performers. While I liked the key lime pie it was not tart enough for my taste :)
