Recommended - definitely recommended (if you like real food). I visited last week with my wife and two teenage children when visiting Lincoln for the weekend. My meal was classic good food (lamb cutlets) with vegetables, served jointly by the waiter and the chef. When my children ordered banana boat for dessert, the waiter responded by reaching over to a... More

We stopped for a meal at this resurant which looked as if time had stopped in the 1970s, the staff very friendly, but clearly the resurant needed some TLC, the menu was to much, offering to many choices, it needed to be condensed and updated, the food was not of quality or value which was a shame, we so wanted...

Visited here after a recommendation from my Mam and dad who had lunch a awhile ago. Mam and dad are in there early 60's and I can see why they loved the place. It's so quaint and a place from a bygone era. In today's high gloss, clean line restaurants with marble and mirrored walls this is something completely different,... More

Lincoln is wonderful and awash with eateries. All of them good, but there is a similar American diner inspired vein running through a lot of their menus -to be honest exactly what I usually go for. But, whilst my wife was 'embedded' in a shop, I stumbled upon an almost hidden doorway next to a menu...Crust. Classic dishes at affordable... More

Time warp but not the good version. Very personal service and attention on the slow side, unnecessary complicated menus, fair quality food-not great nor bad, good value. Mixed review but overall wouldn't recommend or go again, sorry; limited appeal.

Ate last night at crusts for a celebration for mum 70th birthday. A lovely quaint restaurant. Excellent service from Victor nephew who was so pleasant, friendly and attentive. Silver service. Water on table and warm bread rolls. Had the prawn cocktail, garlic mussels and steak. Was served by the chef Victor on hot plates with fresh ingredients and large portions... More

I can't understand why this place is not packed other than people don't know about it. The service is first class, the menu choice is endless and the food is excellent.

I have read previous reviews and often walked past but tonight was the night to try Crust Restaurant. I was not disappointed. The menu is vast and there are seasonal / "fish catch" special boards as well! There is definitely something for everyone. Not fast food. Not slow good. Just good food prepared with love. Victor, the chef, was charming... More
