    Food was not hot- they were not busy. Ordered the brisket grilled cheese- it was roast beef- not smoked. Absolutely horrible. Appetizers were cold. We had decent service. Do not recommend this vevue.

    Both my husband’s dish (shells and shells) and my dish (mushroom ravioli) were ridiculously salty. My ravioli also had so many onions that were undercooked and crunchy that I left more than half of them in the bowl. Overall, not that impressed with the food quality for the prices they’re charging.

    We were excited to experience this steakhouse and bourbon! Unfortunately when we arrived Maryland was using as their team hotel! So we were sat at a four top near the door! I asked if we could not move to the four top by the windows? We were told no only four people which was given to four men from the bar area which was an event for Maryland! There were two other tables near the windows with two people. We discussed leaving at this point! We decided to stay. Two tables opened up and both were sat with two people! Wow really only four people ?? Both groups were white! Not sure how to describe this?? I’m white my wife is Filipino!! Steak was great! Too bad we won’t come back!!

    food was pretty good, overall. I had the steak tips which were pretty chewy, but the mashed potatoes were super good! Other family members had burgers and mac & cheese. The latter was a hit amongst several kids because it was not like the boxed stuff. Servers seem to be a bit disorganized and understanding who was supposed to be doing what and who was getting beverages. we ended up going to the bar ourselves just to make it easier on them

    We enjoyed Single Barrel very much. My husband was pleased with the selections of whiskey and bourbon, while I enjoyed a nice cocktail. The cornbread appetizer with various spreads was delicious! The steak salad and PB&J Chop were flavorful and much enjoyed. We highly suggest Single Barrel.

    Single Barrell is not an easy place to find right away. It's attached to a hotel and the entrance is on a cross street, not the Google address. That said, once inside, I found it to be a really cool place. Big bar, lots of whiskies, limited but acceptable menu, great service. 10/10 would go again - especially now that I know where it is and where to park. A hint: best not to go on a Friday or Saturday night. Downtown Lincoln can be a nightmare on the weekends!

    Everything about our visit was great except for one thing. The steaks were cooked perfectly, mashed potatoes and Mac & cheese were delicious and service was spot on. Just don’t get the cookie dough cheesecake for dessert. No flavor and really didn’t resemble cheesecake. Not sure what happened there.
