Have come here a couple of times before, decent food, great beer selection. This time it was for a pre-concert party, place was packed so we didn't order any food, just a couple beers, didn't take too long even with all the people.

Great service.  Mr. Picky had their house fries.  He was good with them.   I had a Cobb Salad.  Great service!  Mr. Picky is a beer drinker, so the option of 112+ beers is a great option for him.   He even got a tour of the keg room.  When Mr. Picky is happy everyone's happy!  Came back today for their amazing happy hour!

Tonight was my 21 and I went to 5 bars. Longwell's was by far my favorite. The bartender, Keaton, was the greatest person in the world. Was super funny and nice. I had an amazing time! More...

This place has some of the best beer selections on tap along with an array of other drinks. If you want some of the best nachos ever, come to Longwells. The people working there were very pleasant as well. This place gets busy, so you can't expect them to be at your side 24/7. Also, place to be for Husker game days because no bigger TVs anywhere ����� More...

I went to go watch the Mayweather v McGregor fight. My server was Amber. She made my night by always xchecking up to make sure I always had something in front of me and to see if I needed anything. I don't know if I've even had service like that at some of the high-end restaurants in town. You could tell she was exhausted and limping a bit (probably from how packed it was) but hustled through it like the true champ of the night. Oh and the fact she was also going for McGregor made it even better. So thank you Amber for the AMAZING service you did a wonderful job!!! When the pay-per-view was down for awhile it did get a bit frustrating listening to all the yelling from people in there but I knew it had nothing to do with longwells. But other than that it was a great night that I will remember for a very long time and I'm glad I was at longwells to experience it! More...

Only reason I'm not giving 5 stars is recently they have changed how they do their wings. They use to have fantastic BBQ wings, but they have changed how they make the wings for some reason and the wings now are just average nothing special. Otherwise service is always great. Fun place to hang out and have some drinks and watch the some tv on there giant wall of TVs More...

I will give it a 4. We got there before any rush and was completely IGNORED by the female working tables on either side of us. Thanks to the guy in the red & black beards who gave us top notch service...to the b*itch wearing the daisy duke green short, I"ll just stop now. More...

If your into a great selection of micro brews this is the place to go. They have the greatest staff in the world, service is great and we love their food. You can watch your favorite sporting event on the giant state of the art big screen TV's which makes you feel like you are actually there. Longwell's is a can't miss destination point. More...

Fantastic service!! Austin was an excellent, phenomenal bartender ... during a very busy, packed, standing room only night of the Final 4 basketball game, he made it feel as if it was not busy. Exceptional selection of beers! It seems to me so many craft beer bars are missing the mark on selection lately...and, Longwell's nails it!!! More...

We love Longwells, it is our pre-Husker BB game & pre- concert destination, we are usually waited on in a timely manner & well taken care of, yesterday took a little longer to get waited on intally, but they were very busy & we didn't mind. The food is always good!

Wow! I just read all of the bad reviews and realize that I must have gotten lucky. My server was one of the best ever but I have had anywhere. She was timely, attentive, helpful and very kind. She knew her beers and helped me pick out the ones that I would like. The food was just OK. More...

This place knows what they are doing. Huge bar with over 100 taps. GREAT beer to choose from. Staff friendly and helpful. Lots of seating indoors and out. We stayed for awhile and listened to the music. Great place. Wish we had one like this back home. Well done Longwell's. More...

14 October 2016

First off, I've been here many times and don't understand the negative reviews, much less agree with them.Longwell's features one of the best selections of on-tap beer in Lincoln and I dare say it has Old Chicago beat. The food is incredible, especially the brisket and the steak fries. The portions are humongous! The prices are pretty reasonable, both for drinks and for food. The service is decent, considering it's a sports bar. And if you're upset that the bartender doesn't know how to make your "foo foo" drink, deal with it! Chill out and have another beer. They have a great selection, and it's pretty decently priced. More...

24 Local beers on tap!!! 102 total !!! Outstanding!!! Food good I ordered the beef brisket.. brisket is awesome BBQ sauce not so much recommend ordering sauce on the side.... mac and cheese for a side AMAZING but a little spicy . As far as reviews about being expensive ... not so much unless you are here during a Cornhusker game or an event next door .... Service I would give 5 stars.. kitchen staff and management offered input and samples .... other than BBQ Sauce this place is 5 stars hands down !!! More...

The worst service ever!! The host and hostess all they did was flirted with each other and ignored our presence every time I tried to get their attention the "blonde " gal would flip her hair and turn her head as I didn't need help Finally I went to the host stand and ask for a server both hosts were annoyed because I interrupted their personal conversation I sat in this bar for 7 hours watching college football � I was in town visiting my son who goes to UNL guess what People there are several choices around your business My server was cool � he took care of us food was good � I will be back however if those rude ass hosts are there I will swat myself and get my own server If they worked for me; fired!! Btw I also heard others talking about them Time of visit Saturday 330-10:15 More...

We hit Longwell's last night, had a GREAT experience!  Great atmosphere - TVs everywhere. Dan, our very nice and awesome server, made excellent suggestions.  We had fun chatting him up about various beers.  Our drink of the stop involved a grapefruit flavored beer with a tequila shot it it - SO REFRESHING!  Highly recommend a stop at Longwell's during your crawl!

By far the best place in the railyard and haymarket. If you like beer (or any other spirit) this is the place to come. Great selection of craft beer and best spot to catch any game on tv. I live in the area and this is my go to place for drinks! More...

Longwell's is the perfect place to catch your favorite team playing. With multiple big screens throughout the bar and restaurant area, you won't have to miss out on anything. If it's a (relatively) nice day you can sit outside and catch the game on the Railyard's Cube (a 14x40 feet behemoth that can be seen throughout the Railyard's open pavillion). Dependent on how busy they are or what team is playing seating can get a bit cramped, but the outdoor seating option seems to still be viable, at least till the first snowfall. The interior is what most people have come to expect from a modern bar/restaurant of this elk; a dual bar, one with seating that gives you a front row glimpse at the many many beers on tap, (surprisingly, Longwell's doesn't actually brew its own beer, instead opting to provide many Lincoln staples like Empryean and ZipLine), lots of high tops and a glass encased party room. I was a bit disappointed that they play music instead of audio from the game on the big screen but it only slightly affected the experience. My friend and I decided on three items to share: a half order of the Fries Rule add pulled pork, Spinach and Artichoke Dip and the BBQ Bacon Cheddar Sliders. The Fries Rule w/ pulled pork are Longwell's super delicious version of loaded fries/potato skins. The half order was so big that even after splitting it with my friend there was leftovers for my lunch the next day. At first I liked that the pulled pork didn't come pre sauced, but as with most loaded fries it needed a little bit of moisture so I ended up topping it with bbq sauce. The fries were super crispy, although I do wish they were lightly seasoned.The spinach and artichoke dip was really creamy and didn't separate into an oily mess when it got cold. Would have liked more spinach or artichokes in the actual dip but that's my complaint with most restaurants dip. Would have also liked 1) handmade and 2) warm tortilla chips as the side. Overall pretty decent but you should definitely eat this first unless you want to battle with a top layer of cheese to get to the dip underneath when it does cool off.The last thing I tried and certainly my favorite of the night were the BBQ bacon cheddar sliders. We got three nice sized sliders on pretzel buns, not too much sauce, not super small burgers patties in comparison to the bun and shredded cheddar which I like a bit more on sliders (no worries about cutting a slice of cheese to fit). Also no bacon skimping which was a plus. Would order these little guys again. More...

For a 1 hour stop on a bar hop to grab a few craft beers and watch some sports or socialize- 4 stars. 1. I cannot speak for the food since we did not eat there. 2. I cannot speak for the fall nebraska football season or any big game night for professional sports- but on a fairly "normal" night which we visited, I had a great time.The beer menu is huge, and they have about 70 something beers on tap. We wasted no time asking for the 6 page menu and scouring it for our favorites. We had some out of town guests from the west coast visiting, and pointed out some of the local (zipline) or fairly local beers from the midwest, which they were excited to try. I thought the pricing was fair, about $5 ish for the 10oz and $6-8 for the 16oz. The bartender was fairly attentive to me after helping the people who had arrived first. He at least acknowledged me, which to me is the most important thing when there is a big crowd waiting to be served at the bar. It's sorta "Hey I see you there and am mentally taking note in the order which I need to help the customers". I was pleased with this service and it is much better than other bars I have been to when busy. There are 2 or 3 wall sized screens on one side of the room, and smaller TVs on the other. When you are there at night I swear it will blind you everytime they are on a white screen. However, its a HUGE screen which means yay you get to see the game. Just depends on what you care about. I could see this place getting nuts  during the Huskers season, and having a lot of high energy that comes with Nebraska's favorite team. More...

Great selection of beers. The flights are well worth the money. Biggest flight glasses I've seen. They label them, so it is easy to remember which your are drinking. Food was good and the service was excellent. We commented on one particular beer that we had never had. They wrapped a six-pack up and it was waiting for us when we left. More...

We ate here on my visit to Lincoln this weekend.  It was AMAZING!!  They have a ridiculous beer selection!!  I have never seen such a huge beer list!  The food was out of this world.  We had their Reuben sandwich with sweet potato fries...it was enormous and delicious!   We also sampled some of their new happy hour menu, and everything was very well plated and super yummy! Don't miss out on the pulled pork sliders! I would highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a fun place to eat in Lincoln! More...

Cool little bar, with over 70 beers on tap.  You can take your beer outside and enjoy it at some outdoor seating.  Great location, right by Pinnacle Bank Arena, and great view of the jumbo screen.  They also have a number of large TVs in the bar.  Fun place but as with a lot of places in the Haymarket, I would like it if it were a little bigger.   If you try to go on a night where there is a event at Pinnacle Bank Arena, you won't get in unless you get there early, or late. More...

What a great place! 3 of the largest TVs I have ever seen in a bar. Small place but nice. it was a slow night and service was excellent but I don't consider that a true test of good service. We had the artichoke dip for starters...very very good. I had the BBQ burger and wife had the chicken sandwich. Burger was good...not amazing but still good. Chicken was a large butterflied breast with excellent flavor and both a pile of fries. More beer selections than most other bars and right across from the arena. We will definitely be back. More...

YUMMY! If you like beer apparently, this is not good according to others' reviews. But my boyfriend and I came here for burgers and were SOOO delighted :)I had the Rule G, I'm not much of a cole slaw person but it was so good and cooked perfectly! My boyfriend had the duffified and it was really good as well! The only bad thing was that our sides were cold. I think it was because it was a Friday night maybe. Or the burgers took way longer to cook than fries? I'm not sure. But I got sweet potato fries! SO good. We'll probably come back :) They also have 24oz burger called the big arse burger and if you finish, you get a picture on the hall of fame haha. More...

Hidden bargain for breakfast. Yeah a bar. Service was great today aug24 has been a bit inconsistent before. Eggs coffee hashbrowns bacon for 2 like twelve bucks and generous servings. Easy parking in mornings and you can eat outside if the beer smell bugs you. Huge screens for sports fans More...

We will be dining here again. I don't know what all these negative reviews are about. Food was great, service was attentive, we were seated right away and got our food quickly. We had the pulled pork/french fry 'nachos' as an appetizer, I had the beer brined chicken and my boyfriend had the burger with bacon and a fried egg on it, and everything was awesome. More...

No problems here at all. Good service, just the right amount of attention. Extensive tap beer menu to say the least!  The beer Flights  are pretty good but several choices that I wanted were out. The burgers were tasty. Liked the sweet potato fries too. We will be back! More...

Maybe the kinks are starting to work themselves out.  Others have complained about service, but we had very good service from Jordan tonight. The 3 ways buffalo wings have a smokey flavor that really works. They rival the best in town. The stuffed burger (jalapeño & cream cheese) was good, though slightly dry and needed additional flavor.  The soda glasses are canning jars that are so small you need multiple refills. Good service, decent prices and overall good food. Will try again. More...

The beer selection was amazing!  I got the Creme Corn Fritters as an app and they were fantastic!  Never had them before, they are definitely worth trying and they are a good portion to share.  For my entree I had the turkey burger, it was cooked and seasoned perfectly, not dry at all.  Definitely recommend! More...

Coming back the next time we are in the Pinnacle Arena area.  The beer selection is five-star with more than 100 to choose from.  For $8.00 I was able to choose four different kinds of beer from a list they called a "flight" each flight has a different theme; foreigner, local, coastal are just a few examples. The menu included burgers, brisket, ribs and wings. We tried the dip n share beer cheese bread bowl appetizer, which was delicious. I had a turkey burger and my husband had creole wings, both tasty. I ordered a cornbread muffin which came with honey on the side. If you want mouth nirvana put these two things in your mouth in quick succession 1.) cornbread muffin dipped in honey. 2.) a swallow of Boddington's English Pub Ale. The service was a bit inexperienced, which is why it wasn't a five-star overall. The servers haven't tried many of the menu items themselves and so were unprepared to advise on the food. Also, we tried to access the free WiFi there and couldn't for unknown technical difficulties. More...
