A Meal to Remember

A Meal to Remember

Dining at Wilderness Ridge becomes an experience as soon as you enter through the oversized carved front doors. (Hint, ask us about the story behind the carvings.) You’ll be greeted by our friendly staff and will be seated 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. When the weather is nice, you’re welcome to pull up a chair on our 9,000 square foot wrap-around deck and sip on one of our signature cocktails as you take in the beautiful views of our 18-hole golf course. 

Our menus change seasonally and feature ingredients from local farms. From crispy salads to juicy burgers, sizzling skillets, fresh seafood, homemade pasta, and steaks done just right, there is 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. 

We are open for lunch and dinner daily and breakfast is every Sunday. Reservations are not required, but we do offer them online or by calling 402.434.5118.

"Had not been in years and almost forgot this place was here. So glad we stopped in, perfect season to enjoy the fireplace and beautiful holiday decorations. Menu is extensive with many options for vegetarians and fans of a good steak or seafood as well. Our server was polite and prompt and our food was on time and delicious. Really enjoyed our lunch and will be back soon for dinner!"
"Beautiful, rustic facility. The lodge style design and decor is wonderful, the brunch is awesome and the staff is very friendly. We will be back!"
"Great facility at Wilderness Ridge. Made us feel like we were at our favorite mountain lodge in Colorado. Food was very good with nice variety of interesting touches. I had the ravioli, my husband enjoyed the scallops. Next time we hope the weather is nice so we can sit on the deck."
I love the lodge, especially in warmer weather - the outdoor seating is the best in Lincoln. The food here is exceptional. If you like wines try a flight, you'll get a half glass of 4 different kinds, a great way to find new options! 
The atmosphere is beyond compare, especially at the holidays. All the exterior trees are lit and the lodge turns into a north woods lodge at Christmas time! Food is superb, service good, and menu is very forward. 
When you first walk up, the over sized, carved wood doors are impressive; the rest of the restaurant/lodge follows suit. Huge peeled logs serve as the posts to hold up the lofty roof, and more serve as the bar itself and as the lintels over the doors. I've eaten here several times, all for special occasions, and each time the food has been great and the service excellent. I've always made reservations, so we've never had to wait.
