The bourbon selection is great. We had the NY strip which was cooked perfectly.
We dined on a Saturday evening. The place wasn’t crowded at all but was so incredibly loud we almost had to shout to hear conversation at our table of four. Interior is bare bones and austere. Felt more like a fast food establishment than a fine dining room. With that said, our food was excellent and the server attentive. Things came out of the kitchen in a timely fashion. If you are looking for a place to linger over dinner with conversation, this isn’t the place. But if you are just looking to eat and move on, the food is worth it.
Good food. Get The Stack with brisket; trust me. Excellent service. Disappointing decor.
No ambiance. Waitress brought me Mac and cheese- but I had ordered a Caesar salad. We had to ask for steak knives.
No desserts? Not nearly as good in this location!!
I really don’t know what they are trying to be The ambience is extremely casual the prices say nice steakhouse. The food was substandard. The chicken was extremely dry but covered in butter the dirty rice was well cooked but salt was the only flavor. My husband had the house special steak which was nicely done but dripping in butter.
Decent service and good salads. Perhaps a nice place for a cocktail.
Love the new lication
The ribeye and filet were amazing. Our server was very attentive, and seated us in a section near the bar away from a large crowd which was pretty noisy. That would be my only negative as it seems there is a lot of noise; other than that, food & drinks were awesome. Will go again. Be sure to make a reservation.
Waitress took our order and brought us the check. Served by someone else Steak was barely pink for a Med rare. Had to ask for steak knife. Potatoes were crumbly and cold. Did not get water refills. Waitress brought check but left dirty dishes at the table. Was definitely disappointed for the price
The food was awesome. The wait for our food was lengthy. From the time we ordered to when we received our food was about 45 min. Our server was great. As with many restaurants currently, they appeared to be possibly short-staffed with a full volume of customers. My mom and I had the salmon, my husband had the steak au poivere and my dad had the BBQ combo. All excellent dishes.
They need to work on the decorating and atmosphere. The bananas foster bourbon was amazing!
The room was cavernous; the street noise was high; the walls lacked decoration of any kind; the service was friendly, efficient, and prompt.
Although the cement floors are like the previous location, the new one is much smaller and tables are close together, so noise level is much higher. Same great food, no ambience.
Terrible. Stale chips, mess hall style tables and chairs, brought me the wrong drink. Was going to buy a steak till I was seated at a tiny table with plastic chairs. We left before we even got our food.
We have ate at single barrel for years but tonight the food was awful. We had a salmon sandwich it was mostly lettuce and a tiny bit of salmon not even to fill half a sandwich. The sides were lukewarm. The hamburger was over done. The service was fine the place was clean but they really need to improve on their food like it used to be. They just moved into a new location and I don't know if that's the problem.We will give it one more try in a few months and see what happens.
Meat had a lot of gristle, sides were good. Our server was inattentive and it wasn't even a busy night. The outdoor traffic noise is intense we could hear engines revving and sound systems blasting. Overall it wasn't a good experience.
We were disappointed about the food our server was really nice but we wouldn’t be back sorry
The corking fee was outrageous and the portions were tiny for the value.
Great food and drinks, will definitely be back.
Wait staff was wonderful, friendly and attentive. Seafood nachos were 10/10- yum! Pork stack was WAY too salty. Furnishings seemed a bit worn I.e, the sofas at the entrances. Overall we had fun.
The service and knowledge of bourbon was great. Awesome food and selection.
Steaks were wonderful! They were cooked to order and of great quality.
Delicious barbecue. I heard that they butcher their own meat. Since we are a farm family, it was a testament of their dedication to quality that sounded most appealing. Their selection did not disappoint!
Great food, great service and accommodating to my allergies. Ambiance of the restaurant for date night was mediocre, but would be great for a larger group (when allowed) or for watching sports.
Great service. Great food.
Great service, just ok steak. Should've had a burger.
The food was absolutely delicious but it was a little out of our price range!
Service was on point and food was amazing!! Highly recommend the medium rare tomahawk steak!
This is my favorite steak restaurant in Lincoln. No other restaurant comes close. The chef cooks the steaks perfectly. If you order medium, it will be medium. All too often, other restaurants overcook the steak. The sides are excellent. Overall, great experience, don’t come here thinking this is an elegant restaurant. It is not, but the food more than makes up for the lack of elegance.
Would go back when I am in Lincoln
Good service as usual. Excellent, tender prime New York strip with great flavor. The chicken dip is a favorite of ours, and always delivers. Garlic mashed potatoes were okay. The side salad was okay, but the 'ranch' dressing was not to my taste. We wish they offered a sweet potato as a side. They should make the exterior entrance more inviting.
The tables were far apart which was important to us! The service and food were fabulous!!! Such a great evening! We will definitely be back!!!
Had a great experience and not only was the service great the quality of the food was outstanding.
Thank you again.
We were seated far from the grill and our food was cold, our server promptly had the manager to our table and they remade the entire order. The service was top notch.
$40 prime rib eye. Overcooked medium. Good tasting meat, but if you can't hit medium correctly, don't charge $40.... it's kinda embarrassing for me to send food back that cost that much
Food and service was wonderful! My husband and I really enjoyed our food and the waitress was very friendly and professional. Definitely would recommend!
Food is excellent. Best BBQ in town. Service was good. I was disappointed that we waited 30 minutes for the waitress to first come by our table. Even so, she was excellent for the rest of the visit. Overall, great experience. Highly recommend SB.
Very nice experience. Excellent food!!
Enjoyed an evening out with the family. I had the steak, my son had the pasta. We had eggnog desert with a yummy gingerbread cookie dipped in it!
Loved the food!
Great food, must have the seafood nachos and if you like grits, theirs are phenomenal!
