What was on OpenTable and what was actually experienced were two different things. Not sure how open table restaurant can be advertising $50 plus steaks and have screaming babies? Felt like I was sitting at a bar and waiting for the band to come out.
Glad this wasn’t on my dime!
Food wash great and was cooked perfect will definitely be back
Great service, was not super busy so we got our food quick. Not very fancy but worked for us. They have a great variety of bourbon!
I absolutely love the steak Cobb salad. The eggplant chips are to die for. Single Barrel never disappoints.
Great whiskey selection, cornbread was fantastic and came with bacon jam (who knew). Food was great and service was prompt and friendly. We can't wait to go back
The menu had a great variety and all the food was prepared very well.
Ordered the Peanut Butter and Jelly pork chop....it was nothing like you imagine. SO GOOD.
My wife had the Prime steak with Marrow Butter. It was good....but not 40 bucks good. The mashed potatoes were kind of boring but the grits were fantastic. whiskey ranges from 4 bucks a glass to 50 bucks a glass.. my waitress wasn't old enough to drink- so she couldn't give me any tips on what was good. i tried a 10 dollar glass and it was like drinking paint thinner with ice. The location is great. close to parking and the theater but the inside reminded me of a 1970's VFW hall. everything is brown and dark. the chicken cheese dip is the greatest food product of all time. eating it is like making out with you favorite movie star but with your tastebuds...and no assault charges later
Fantastic tasting food. Very impressed. Server was attentive and pleasant. Need to go back again soon.
Went in for Valentine’s Day. We had a reservation, we had to wait a about 10 minutes. Not a big deal, considering the evening.
It was quite busy, things took a little longer to come to the table. All this is understandable. Unfortunately our steaks were not cooked to the doneness requested but with how busy they were, we also knew that sending them back would take a lot longer to get them back and we were hungry. Flavor was amazing. We will return and try a again for sure!
The staff was extremely friendly.
Great food! Excellent steaks, cooked to our liking! Great service, very friendly and quick!
Good food but challenges with service. Seemed like the servers were very fresh and needed a little more guidance on how to make the experience great. Generally enjoyable but room for improvement.
Short staffed and out of beers and menu items. Food was good not great which was disappointing as we met up with friends from out of town. We try to choose local restaurants and have had much better experiences in the past.
Great food and service
The experience was okay. The mains were pretty good but the sides were disappointing. I had the grits as my side and I’m not sure they know what grits were. The texture was somewhere between bread and over cooked oatmeal. My husband has the mashed potatoes as his side and they pretty forgettable.
I think the most disappointing part of the experience was the pacing of the food. We ordered an appetizer and when it came out, our food showed up literally one minute later. We had the chance to take one bite of our app and then our entrees were out so it was like “um...so either we enjoy our app and let our mains get cold or just shove a bunch of food in our mouth” which kind of killed the mood of the date.
I will say their take on a Moscow Mule was delicious with the bourbon. I would come back for drinks but probably not food.
We ate here before going to the Lied center. It was a home basketball night, as well, so it was pretty busy. Still, we were seated immediately, the service was wonderful, and the food delicious. We'll definitely go back.
They were busy and even tho we had reserved via open table we had to wait a few min in lobby... if you're looking for upscale atmosphere SB isn't it... however the food quality and presentation was outstanding ...
Odd venue. But best smoked brisket ever. I would return to Lincoln to repeat this amazing meal. The side order of vinegar intense slaw was great with the fatty brisket. Wonderful meal.
The menu for. YE seas very vague, it read sirloin and lobster. The amount of lobster was minimal “pieces” on top and the sirloins were sold up so there was a $10 upcharge to sub the filet.
Single barrel is a great little spot for lunch and dinner that always pleases. With plenty on the menu to satisfy both picky eaters and those wanting to be adventurous it's my go to for any occasion in downtown Lincoln.
PBJ Chop was amazing. Service was outstanding. Noise level was pretty high because of acoustics but it won’t keep me from coming back. Great whiskey list.
Made reservation and when arrived they informed us they sat to many walk ins and it would be awhile. Didn't want my name, when my reservation was, or anything. Couldn't tell me how long the wait might be. Just said we can go to the bar and wait. Two couples behind us were told the same and handled in the same manner. Lady was abrupt and disinterested. They need to plan better and make walk ins wait if people have reservations. Can't comment on anything else as we had a show to go to and could not wait.
Sunday evening nice dinner with great service by Sean.
It was cozy, the food was great, service was good and they have great BBQ. My only suggestion is to add some Mac and cheese to the menu, it seems to be a staple with BBQ in the Midwest, but they didn’t serve it?
Great service experience, good food experience at Single Barrel the evening of the Garth Brooks concert. This is a meat forward restaurant. We both went with the smoked side of the menu. Tried the sampler of ribs, brisket, & pork. Ribs & brisket were outstanding with good smoky flavor. Pork was a little on the fatty side, but flavor was good.
Excellent food with a menu mixing the creative with the classic in the barbecue and steak cuisine.
Appetizers were very good, but the sirloin steak I had was fantastic! I also had 3 glasses of the Sangria cocktail (red) and each of those drinks were super! One of the other people with me had the filet steak and she raved about that and the potato cakes for the entire rest of the meal! Bloody Mary drink comes loaded with a skewer of green olives, cheese chunks and some andouille sausage! Delish!
Wonderful food and atmosphere! The service was quick and accurate and everyone enjoyed their meals.
Food is ok, drinks are pretty weak considering the name of the place. Steak was overpriced but cooked correctly and pretty good. Ok place just nothing memorable.
We had a party of nine on a Friday night. Service was good. Nice bourbon selection although they were out of my number on choice on the published list of offerings. All in our party were pleased with their dinners.
Food was meh, well cooked but tasted like liquid smoke. Kind of disappointing for a $40 steak
Food was good but service was spotty. It took our server a long time to get our drinks. Food took a really long time. Our waitress (there were several) seemed overwhelmed and the bar and kitchen overwhelmed. This was a Friday night at 8pm in their defense.
Prime butter steak fantastic
Service was like a painful turtle. There is no excuse for food taking an hour to arrive & cocktails 20 minutes. We were so rushed to make Lied show by the time food came that there was no birthday dessert as promised. Food was average. No handsoap in ladies restroom makes you wonder how female servers are meeting food safety standards. GROSS! There are so many fab dining places downtown, we probably won't be back.
The service was terrible. We went there on a football Friday fully expecting it to be busy but what we didn't expect was to sit a full 20 minutes before we finally went and asked for a server only to be told no one told her she had a table. Overpriced food served on a plastic lunch tray with a slice of wonder bread. Never going back!!
Extremely poor service. 20 minutes after beng seated a drink order was finally taken. 45 minutes before water arrives at the table.
Dinner was a 2.5 hour experience, not because we wanted to be leisurely. Had to constantly flag down a server if we wanted anything. Really, really disappointed that they could not do better the night before a Husker home game.
Overall, it was a good experience. However, it was the night before a football game so service was a bit shaky which is odd considering Lincoln is a football town. One would think they' have things in place to be prepared for a rush.
The food was mediocre and there are plenty of better barbecue places in and around downtown Lincoln. Their whiskey and cocktail menu was very extensive and the service was fine.
Fantastic meal, lots of (great) food. Very good value. Excellent service. We will be back for a large holiday party!
Beautiful atmosphere and great service. The BBQ is absolutely amazing!
We had a larger group of 11. Wide variety ordered. Everyone raved about their meal! I loved the duck breast!! All BBQ eaters were pleased. The Bourbon list was extensive. I enjoyed 2 Old Fashions thoroughly.
