Fun night! There were 6 tables celebrating birthdays and they made it so fun. Happy birthday song with everyone's name in the song. Great food as well. Very friendly servers and very clean.

As always, we were thrilled with our experience at Screamer's. They were running a date-night special for Restaurant Week, which meant we got a lot of great food for an excellent value. Haylee was our server, and was wonderful, as she always is. She is a very talented performer and an attentive server, so we really enjoy when she is working!

Favorite restaurant. Took granddaughters, 20 somethings, for their first time. They absolutely loved it. Kevin sang a request which was lovely. And we tried 2 new dishes...the penne which was delicious and the braised short ribs. Delectably tender. Our new favorite dish. Highly recommend Screamers for its ambience, food, fun drinks, and TALENTED singing staff.

The atmosphere is really nice. The singer's for the special event they were hosting were pretty good! The steak was a little fatty. The brussel sprouts had a good taste but a little more firm than I like.

My favorite Lincoln restaurant. We eat out a couple times a month but will always go to Screamers for one of those times. The food is delicious and served with skill, fun, energy and love. Saying the staff is multi talented is an understatement. Each one of them is a rock star. Once you know why it’s called Screamers you begin to see the heart of a man, Kevin, the owner, who loves people and loves to entertain. This is a true Lincoln gem. And maybe my favorite thing is they will sing for the crowd who’s there. Friday night there were a couple of kids so some Disney and Muppet songs made the stage. Love, love, love!!!

Will definitely be back. Would have liked to have heard more singing while we were there but they were swamped with guests so there is only so much a person can do.

So much fun!

1st time there. Mussels to start- very good
I had the French Dip- the au jus was fairly salty. I had the side salad with it- Wonderful. Husband had the meatloaf- huge serving. Loved the singing wait staff- all the performances were excellent!!!!!!! We will definitely go back.
The Love Potion drink was beautiful as well as tasty.

You must come here if you are in Lincoln! The food and entertainment were top notch. Kevin the owner is doing a great job with this dining and cabaret concept. While eating a wonderful dinner you are entertained by the wait staff. They sing everything from old standards to rock and roll. Children were also enjoying the evening. I think there is one night a week that they cater to the kids.
It was a snowy week day when we went and the place was crowded. There is not a bad seat in the room. I recommend getting a reservation. I will return the next time we are traveling through Lincoln.

Brought the whole family in (ages 8 to 88) for a holiday meal and experience. As always, the staff are excellent entertainers and the food is top notch. When you are at Screamer’s you really feel like you are at a big city venue. We are lucky to have this treasure in Lincoln! We had a blast.

You come for the "novelty" of singing servers (like a free cabaret show), then find out they are all top-notch talents! (This is coming from a very critical professional musician.) And then you find the food is ALSO top-notch! I've been there often, and I try different entrees and desserts there each time, never disappointed! I didn't have room for dessert this time, but I had to get the Italian Lemon Cake to go, and it's amazing as a leftover!

Tonight my husband and I went to Screamers for date night. I had the root beer braised short ribs. They were so tender and flavorful. My husband had the New York Strip cooked medium. It came out perfect. Screamers was having a special event for the Holidays with some of the Scarlet and Cream Singer alum. What talent!! I have been multiple times and will continue to go back.

We enjoyed the great talent provided by the staff. Such a variety of performance and wonderful voices. The newcomers in our group also loved the entertainment. Only misstep was the inconsistency of the food temps. All were tasty but a couple dishes were lukewarm. Applying Groupon was difficult since our group had 5 and the reduction only applied to 4. Our ticket was well over the limit but still required separate tickets and not sure why. Otherwise we had a great visit on a mid-week visit and will definitely return to show off this gem.

Room temperature was chilly. Understand the service staff are performers, but when they are on stage in clothing that has food stuff down the front, it takes away from the performance.

Had received a free entree for my birthday when I made the reservation. I ordered the Salmon entree. I did not mention the coupon until it was time to pay. The waitress stated that seafood was not included in the free entree. No where on the coupon does it mention that. I would have asked to speak to a manager etc. but needed to leave so did not have time to deal with it. Very disappointed and false advertisement since it was not stated on the coupon.

We came after we saw Phantom and had a great time! Food, service and performers were all fantastic! The only “down” was the speaker to the right of the stage was bad. It was fuzzy and giving feedback. Other than that, we loved it and will be back!
