After a six-year closure, Beermann’s was warmly welcomed back into the Lincoln dining scene in April. The look hasn’t changed – it is still the beautiful, historic wood and brick building gracing tree-lined Fifth Street.
My husband and I visited on a Tuesday evening and were ushered into the street-level “parlor,” which is used for dining during the week. The second floor dining room is open on weekends and sees lots of activity with its bar, ballroom and game room. Currently, live entertainment plays Wednesday, Friday and Saturday nights.
Beermann’s always has been, and remains, a steakhouse. Even though it was Taco Tuesday, we wanted to dine from the varied American-California main menu. We chose a traditional steakhouse appetizer, Potato Skins, which were tasty and hearty – brimming with melted Cheddar cheese, smoky bacon, roasted tri-tip, chives and sour cream. My husband’s entrée, the Grilled Ribeye, arrived perfectly cooked to medium-rare. Topped with sautéed mushrooms, it had a delicious earthy, smoky flavor. I chose something a bit lighter – Sautéed Mushroom Shrimp Scampi. Large prawns were drenched in a light and savory sauce of tomatoes, green peppers, mushrooms, onions and Parmesan cheese. Loved it! After the appetizer, as well as large green salads and dinner rolls that accompany all “off the grill” items, we needed boxes for our unfinished goods.
Our attentive server informed us all desserts are homemade, making the short but enticing menu impossible to pass up. We shared the Apple Walnut Crisp, which was actually a cross between a crisp and bread pudding. Heated for a few minutes in the wood-fired oven, then topped with vanilla ice cream, it was mouthwatering – a perfect finish to our stellar meal.
Whether it’s a drink at the bar, a quick lunch, special dinner, large party or event, Beermann’s is once again the place to go in Lincoln.
