About Wilderness Ridge

Dining at Wilderness Ridge becomes an experience as soon as you enter through the over-sized carved front doors. Our friendly staff will seat you in your choice of the casual bar, which features live music most Friday and Saturday evenings, or our more intimate dining room with views of our chefs preparing your favorite entrées.

Our menus change seasonally and feature ingredients from local farms. From the crispiest greens, the juiciest burgers, the freshest seafood to steaks done just right, our seasonal menus offer a little something for everyone. And don’t forget about our signature desserts. You won’t want to leave without trying our Triple Chocolate Mousse! To wet your whistle, we offer an extensive wine list, craft beers and signature and seasonal cocktails. Join us on Sundays for one of Lincoln’s best brunch buffets. Brunch gets extra special around here on Easter, Mother’s Day and Thanksgiving weekend – we strongly encourage reservations on these special days.

 (Omaha)·Dined 7 days ago

Our 6:45 reservation was not honored, we were told they were running behind and it would be 20-30 minutes. So we elected to sit in the bar area. It took 45 minutes from when we finished our salads before our meals arrived. Our server apologized three time to us but did offer any compensation for the delay. My wife's dish had Gnocchi which was over cooked and stuck together. My meal came with a baked potato which was about 1/2 the size of those I saw other tables were getting and it looked like it was reheated without all the topping I'd asked for. After we had desert it took our server 20 minutes to bring us our bill. We will never go to Wilderness Ridge again and be sure we will tell all our friend and family of the experience. Granted it was Valentines Day but over two hours for a sub par meal at $140 is unacceptable.

Went here for Valentines dinner with my fiancée. Really nice ambience, good food, and great service. We really enjoyed our three course meal. The steaks were tender and juicy! Definitely recommend if you live in the Lincoln area.

Food was delivered more cold than hot. Spinach artichoke dip was less than average. Lacked flavor. The walleye was a huge disappointment as it looked more like an unappetizing fish soup. Of the three of us, we had salmon, walleye and the small filet. Walleye was horrid, steak was so so, the salmon was quite good. This was our first time there and we expected much more for the over $106.00 tab (without drinks). We can find a much more satisfying meal for much less in Lincoln.

 (Omaha)·Dined on December 9, 2017

Everything about Wilderness Ridge was exceptional except for the food. I had the French Dip and the quality of beef combined with the old bread made my meal less than optimal. My wife had a Hamburger, and the burger had little taste and the bread also was old and crumbly. I would have thought for such a unique and welcoming setting that the food would have been above fast food quality. The setting was outstanding, and our server was unbelievably hospitable and courteous

What a wonderful dining experience. Great atmosphere, setting and ambience. Cocktails were excellent and the food was superb!!!!!
Steaks were cooked to perfection as were the scallops. Compliments to Chef Eric and sous chefs for their culinary skills. Enjoyed chef's visit to our table for feedback.
Entire evening was a delight.

We had out of the country guest, two Doctors from India. They were duly impressed with the building and we related the story as best we could remember. It used to be on the back of your menu. Perhaps do that again. The Sunday buffet brunch also impressed them with the wide selection and presentation. A sister is coming from India in mid-August and they plan on bringing her to Wilderness Ridge. WE are from Omaha which is where they are staying.
