A word from Gorat's Steak House
Gorat's Steak House has been an Omaha tradition for more than 69 years. Founded in 1944 by Louis and Nettie Gorat, and subsequently operated by their son, Louis, Jr. - affectionately known as “Pal” - and his family, Gorat’s has catered to generations of Omaha families and visitors alike, proudly serving quality steaks, Italian specialties and other local favorites.

Omaha restaurateur purchased Gorat’s in the fall of 2012 and after an updating of the interior and kitchen, reopened in December of 2012. The menu continues the tradition of local Italian steak house fare with the addition of new favorites such as signature entrees, tantalizing salads and freshly prepared pastas.

A frequent stop of the “Wizard of Wall Street” Warren Buffett, Gorat’s has hosted celebrities and dignitaries from around the world. Whether you are a new visitor or someone whose family has previously enjoyed the Gorat’s Steak House tradition, we welcome you and wish you buon appetito!

Diner Reviews
  • "For once, we did NOT order steak at Omaha's best steakhouse. The fried catfish was a pleasant change and most tasty. The service was very friendly and helpful. With the change of ownership and demodeling last year, Gorat's cast off the old "dining hall" atmosphere and has well lit and decorated rooms. We will be back frequently."

  • "I have been a customer for years. The changes to the menu and atmosphere are all good. In my opinion. They have kept the best items from the old menus and built some new interesting choices into the mix. The management was present and helpful to the staff on a busy Saturday night. I like the art and memory pieces in the dining rooms."

  • "The historic place is charming and they just remodeled the interior and they owner gave us an impromptu tour. The service was friendly but a bit slow for as few customers there were. The food...well, the Loaded Baked Potato soup was marvelous; however my prime rib was horrible. Nebraska=beef and Gorat's was supposed to be one of the best. No, it was all fat and hard gristle. The flavor was ok, but I had to spit most of it out because I couldn't chew it.The sauteed button mushrooms were good. Skip the beef and go for the very cheesy ckn parm that my date had."

  • "Got seated quickly, but it was a full place and no choice of seating was offered. Our waitress was harried, No time to acknowledge us for quite some time. I very was tempted to leave before we began ! Food was great but restaurant was very noisy. So much so, I couldn't even have a conversation with my company sitting right next to me. All in all, the experience was good as as long you don't mind waiting and eating in a very noisy restaurant."

  • "Gorat's is better than ever. Again had a superb steak. My wife's chicken fried steak was indeed the best in Omaha. Fast, friendly service, as always. We will definitely return."

  • "Our food was absolutely amazing at Gorat's and so reasonably priced. The steak was cooked to perfection and literally fell apart in my mouth. Excellent ambiance."

  • "We have eaten there several times and the food is excellent and is consistently great. Steaks are perfectly prepared, the chicken fried steak is the best in Omaha, and the onion rings are great and plentiful. I would recommend this to anyone looking for great food, excellent and person service. It is worth the drive from wherever you are. We travel from Plattsmouth regularly to eat there."

  • "After reading other reviews, I was a little nervous. This was my first time to Gorat's, but definitely won't be my last! We had a great time! It was very busy, because I think a living social deal was expiring the next day. Service was very quick & friendly. The only bad point was the Onion Ring appetizer. After hearing so many good things, I was a little disappointed. Onion rings were bland. But, an appetizer really isn't need with all the food you get! Ciabatta rolls in the breadbasket, good salad, and yummy baked potato soup were great!! I got the 6 oz fillet mignon and it was excellent! My husband had the 16 oz prime rib and he said it's the best he's had in a long time. With the living social deal, it was a great bargain!"

  • "Had a great meal, the large fillet was excellent. The sides were also very good. The wedge salad was nothing special; that was the only miss. Prices were very reasonable and we will return."

  • "Gorats has been around forever. A change of ownership made us a little nervous, but they have come through with maintaining great food and service. The steaks are Omaha Steaks, and are very good, not as good as their aged on site steaks from before the change, but still amazing. The remodel is great."

  • "This is a difficult review to write. Our server was very good and apologetic so the negative review in no way reflects on her. The primary complaint was the time it took to receive our food. It started with the appetizer. We finally asked our server to cancel the order. She brought it anyway and did not charge for it. Unfortunately, our entrees also took an unacceptably long time to arrive. Our server again apologized and kept us posted on the progress. The restaurant was not particularly busy and or orders were not complicated. I do not see us going back anytime soon."
