Omaha is a delightfully inviting and compact town that makes for easy sightseeing and exploring. This vibrant Nebraskan city started as mainly farmland and stockyards before developing into the bustling metropolis it is today! Visitors can find many fantastic museums, awesome live music and artistic and eclectic neighborhoods to explore. It is home to billionaire investor Warren Buffet, one of the largest Zoo's in the world, and the charming Old Market Arts and Entertainment District downtown. And it is definitely on the nightlife map these days - people travel from near and far to check out the mix of homey Midwestern watering holes, unique music venues, and swanky clubs. If you're on the hunt for a fun night out, check out our Tastemaker List of the best bars in Omaha.

We come to Sullivans fairly regularly for work dinners and have always enjoyed. Our most recent trip was to celebrate my wife’s birthday and it was a great experience. We booked through open table and noted birthday. When arriving our table they decorated the table and made it a special deal.

Honestly I woke up at 3am after the meal just thinking about it. It was hands down one of the best restaurants we have ever been to. We had the Wagyu Ribeye and Fish & Chips, and if I wasn't full I would have ordered it again. A must visit, can't stress this enough. Just go. Now.

The service was great! Ordered Miso soup and had to clarify with the waiter as the cost of the bowl was 13.00! We thought it was a typo.’ It came out and was too salty so we ended up not even eating it . Other than the soup the food was good but overall prices are outrageous.
