In 1991, Lazlo’s Brewery & Grill opened in Lincoln’s Historic Haymarket District, bringing Nebraska its first restaurant-and-brewery, or brewpub. The demand for our from-scratch cooking, hand-crafted ales and teamwork approach to service was immediate. Over the years, this abundance of demand fueled more restaurants. A second Lazlo’s Brewery & Grill location opened in 2000 in South Lincoln, and our third in Omaha in 2006. Even with multiple Lazlo’s locations, something was still missing. In 2002, Lazlo’s sister restaurant, FireWorks, was born with the desire to bring adventurous wood-fired cooking to Lincoln.
Lazlo’s Brewery & Grill offers creative comfort food served with a contemporary flair. Earth tones and architectural elements create a unique, casual ambiance, complementing the food and friendly service. Each location is marked by our signature fireplaces, outdoor patios, handsome bars, happy hour specials and an extensive children’s menu. At every Lazlo’s, you can also expect free wifi, call-ahead seating, private dining and a takeout service.
Our food is lovingly hand-crafted with fresh ingredients, cooked on our custom grill fueled solely by aromatic Hickory wood. We serve fresh, never frozen Certified Angus Beef® burgers for unbelievable taste and quality. Our steaks are Certified Angus Beef® brand aged 21 days for maximum tenderness. We fly in only the freshest fish for quality that can’t be topped. For the best flavors around, our soups are made from scratch and simmer for hours. This dedication to our craft is what allows us to exceed guest expectations and gives our food its bold, signature flavors.
Bold, signature flavors are also how to describe our hand-crafted ales served straight from Lazlo’s in-house brewery, Empyrean Brewing Co®. EBC has expanded into 6 states since its founding in 1997, and was recognized at the World Beer Cup in Seattle with a silver medal for “Luna Sea ESB.” There’s a reason why our slogan is “Great Food and Nebraska Brew.”
Dine at Lazlo’s Brewery & Grill and let us exceed your expectations with our premium ingredients, from-scratch recipes, and outstanding service.
