This place is under new ownership and is great!!
I used to go there for over 2 years found very friendly nice service and the food was always good....Now I only go there when Debbie is working the tables only til 2pm. The people at the bar have become very rude and the food at night is not the same as in the day. :'(
I wont be coming back..
I don't have a yelp account or normally write reviews but tonight I created this account just to post this.
I always tip, even when I get bad service, because I am in the industry and I never know who could just be having a bad day. NOT TONIGHT. My wife and I bought a home in the area and have been to Nikki Lees 4 times in 2 weeks because its the only late night dining we found close to our house. The first 3 experiences were cool. What you would expect at a local late night bar.
Tonight we sat down, asked for menus and told the bartender that we would need a second. She seemed perturbed by this. We then ordered 2 dirty Stoli Matinis and food. I wish I could post the picture I took of them. She dropped off 2 martini glasses that were half full with the olives in them. She put a 1 ounce pour in a martini glass. Another bartender that worked there that we had seen 2 other evenings was having a going away party and I asked him if this was how they served their martinis. He said no. And that he wouldn't have served them that way. When I asked her if there was a reason she short poured them she responded with that is how they are served. She told me that a martini is an ounce and a half pour. I challenged her on this and she said she has been making martinis for 3 years thats she has made plenty. I found this laughable. She asked how much we charge for martinis at the bar I work at and she responded, "Well this is 5 bucks, if I was charging 12 it would be full."
Funny because I didn't see her short pouring beers. I had to continue to debate this with her until she told me she could add another shot. I am not the kind of person that looks for a handout and never complain to get things taken off or comped.
She spent the rest of the time we were there talking to other patrons at the bar about us with her back to us. Someone in the going away party told my wife he was sorry. I don't know if he worked there as well.
When my calzone came out it was cold inside. I had the feeling she had the cook rush it out intentionally. I didn't bother complaining to her. We came in hungry and tired I didn't want to prolong the ordeal. I ate half of a calzone with cold ricotta cheese inside and just left the rest. I paid for it and for the first time in my life I stiffed the bartender. Which its hard for me to refer to her as such. When she dropped off my change which wasn't correct. She gave me $8.25 instead of the $8.43 it should have been, I don't care about the change. I just thought it funny. She didn't leave a receipt.
I wont be going back. I don't think this woman realized she cost herself at least $160 a month in tip money because we would have been eating and drinking there after work about twice a week.
Good pizza, service not so great. I keep coming back to Nikki Lee's because I like their pizza. However, I've often had bad service. Tonight, for example, we ordered pizza for pickup and the bartender took her own "tip" out of my change. I didn't say anything because it's New Year's Eve, but I did not appreciate it.
Nikki Lee's Sports Bar. I go in Nikki Lee's sports Bar on ocassion The food is good, andf the bartenders are great they make sure your waited on and take good care of you Holly especially.they have all games on is it is just a great bar to kick back gamble a lilttle catch your favorite games and relax. would defintly return here......
First Visit was disappointing. My first visit to this establishment was a disappointment. Friends referred me saying what a great place it was. Three of us from the office had lunch there. We asked about the soup of the day and was told by the waitress that it was Southwest, but didn't look good and she wouldn't eat it, so we all ordered a burger of some type. The food was good, but took over 30 minutes to get. The waiter and waitress passed the table several times asking if we were ok but never waited for a response. Even when the food was served they dropped and ran. No personal service whatsoever. No, the place was not the least bit busy, only 2 other tables were occupied. Maybe it was just a bad day, but my first visit wasn't a welcoming one or leave me with a desire to return anytime soon. Just my opinion.
The WORST!!!!. I am surprised people haven't died here!!!. I watched the cooks and a waitress help themselves to a pile of fries on the serving area? The cook would shove the fries in his mouth and then make a pizza or burger without washing his hand!!!!!?????? The bartender Holly would pick up dirty glasses and ashtrays with her fingers and then grab clean glasses by the rim and pour a beer or drink. This place is so unsanitary that they should not only be closed but jailed for excessive ignorance. I know personally two people that have gotten sick as in diahrea and vomiting from there in the last month. The prices may be low but it is not worth my health!!!
Good Eats. Lots of mouth watering flavor and I like the super fast way they get the food out to you, without feeling hurried.
HUSKER WATCH SITE. Good news because it is close to home. Food here is always good and service ok. Three problems I have is their prices on most meals seem to be a dollar more than most sports bars in town, the speakers to listen to the games at your table are few or inoperative and they never really have any game day specials like 25 cent wings, $1.50 drafts etc. to draw you in to the place. My group goes out for lunch every saturday and we did frequent Nikki Lee's but stopped going as often because there were no real deals.
Good Times!. The grave bartender, Scotty, is on the ball. He pours quality drinks and takes some time between pours to make you feel comfortable and welcome. I WILL be back for my royal!
