Isles Pub & Pizza

Located in 6232 Havelock Ave, Lincoln, NE 68507.

Phone: +1 402-464-1858

Bob and Grace Milton opened Misty’s restaurant in 1963. As their business became more successful they opened Misty’s II Pub and Grub across the street in 1975 to accommodate their growing clientele serving a menu revolving around steak and prime rib. In 1976, Misty’s caught on fire which resulted in them using Misty’s II as their main restaurant until Misty’s could be rebuilt. In 1977 they removed the original kitchen out of Misty’s II and replaced it with a dance floor and changed the name to Misty’s Isles. In 1981, a pizza kitchen was added and the name changed to Misty Italiano’s. In 1984, Dave Cole, a bartender at Misty’s purchased Misty Italiano’s. Dave and his staff spent many painstaking hours working on creating the perfect sauce with just the right amount of flavor and seasoning that would be a crowd favorite yet still be original. The name remained the same for a year and a half before holding a contest to come up with a new name to better define the business – The Isles Pub and Pizza or as most people call it “The Isles”.

The Isles has seen many changes over the years. The dance floor was replaced with tables to accommodate their growing clientele. The kitchen was expanded to the east into the unused space and former cigarette/liquor store where customers can now pick up their carry out along with any wine/spirits, beer, pop, candy, etc. with the convenience of pulling up to the front door. The lounge/restaurant has a pool table, juke box, video game and 8 high-definition TV’s for customers to catch the latest game on. They also subscribe to the NFL Network and free WiFi is available.

The Isles is a great place to stop before or after a game, concert, event or just to meet up with friends and family to relax and have fun.

The Campus Fruit Market in Lincoln, NE
In 1957, Val and Zena Weiler operated the Campus Fruit Market in Lincoln, Nebraska. It was clear to them that their business would soon be eclipsed by the large supermarkets springing up across Lincoln. The landmark which had stood for a dozen years, had to go. In its place, armed with three dozen pizza pans, a recipe that had been in Mrs. Weiler’s family for years, and a generous amount of trepidation, they decided to open a pizza business.

They took in $60 their first day, and as the restaurant’s reputation grew, patrons began to gather and watch through the window as the pizzas were made. They would stand in line for an hour or more to sample the pizza and pasta specialties created in the original restaurant.

There was just one location then and no trip to the city was complete with out stopping to eat at Valentino’s!

About three years after the 1971 purchase of Valentino’s, members of the Messineo and Alesio families carefully formulated plans to expand into additional locations.

Through controlled expansion, and an elaborate system of quality controls, Valentino’s steadily grew. In 1990, Valentino’s opened its first Valentino’s To-Go location, offering take out service only. These stores were an immediate success. Today there are more than 18 successful To-Go locations operating.

Today, Valentino’s has expanded to 35 restaurant locations in 4 different states. The wait is seldom longer than fifteen minutes now, but the recipes and meticulous preparation steps remain.

Valentino’s success began with those wonderful family recipes that were passed on when the business changed hands in 1971. However, there’s more than recipes to this story. The highest quality food, reasonable prices, immaculately clean and comfortable restaurants, genuinely friendly service, and a written corporate creed which says that “community service is as important as the quality of the food”, have helped keep Val’s tremendously popular.
