In from Milwaukee house-hunting and was referred to this special restaurant by our agent. What a great surprise! Amazing food, excellent and friendly service and really fun jazz music. We will definitely return when we move to Omaha!
The menu was very good and the steaks were excellent. Someone in our party had a parmsean dish and said it was the best they had every had. The beer selection really good and cocktails were great. Only thing would have liked would have been to have one green vegetable alternative to carrots (even though carrots were great). The wedge was also really great!
Grew up going here as a child and it is still as good as I remember. Not a fan of the new decor but may take me sometime to get use to it. Food,and service were amazing.
Great place to catch up with friends.
All four in our party loved everything we ordered. Rita, our waitress was outstanding! The salads were cold and crisp, entrees cooked to perfection, the music from the lounge was terrific. We have loved Gorats for years. It is our favorite steak house in Omaha. It has the "good old days" feel with an updated look. We will return and recommend that you give it a try.
We ate dinner at Gorat's this recent Christmas Eve. Our waitress, Rita, was awesome, friendly, helpful, and efficient. The meal was fantastic....from the prime rib to the potato soup and chicken parmesian. Everything was excellent. We will happily eat there again. We made reservations through OpenTable and couldn't have been happier!
Old school griddle cooked steak
We had never heard of this place before a quick Google search brought us here. Oh my goodness am I disappointed to have never dined her before! The atmosphere was amazing, the food was amazing, and the service was amazing. 10/10 would recommend to EVERYONE!
Nice steakhouse in Omaha. There is something for everyone.
I have been going to Gorat's for over 30 years and this was probably the worst "service" we had. I think they were significantly understaffed and it reflected in our service. While the food was on point as usual, there are so many other options that have great service that it may be a while before we return.
Took my husband there for his birthday dinner. food was excellent. Waitress was so kind and kept our drinks full all night.
Reservation was easy to make online, service was great and steak was perfect.
Food was ok but not the best considering the price. Service wasn’t great either being my first trip to Omaha I feel like I need to go back and find a better steakhouse.
Great food and service! Rita was amazing, she recommended fried parsley which everyone enjoyed-surprise! Steaks were delicious and perfectly cooked. Great multigenerational place to eat. Something for everyone.
The Monday pot roast special was delicious. Reminded me of my mother’s cooking and huge portion!
A great all around meal experience
Best steak I've ever had, prepared exactly the way I prefer it! Lovely attentive and efficient wait staff, exceptional in service. Nice setting. Can hardly wait to return.
Sorry, way too bright for any kind of dining and who cares if warren endorses this spot or not. He might want to try other spots in Omaha that are tons better. Sorry Gorat’s
Steak was great! One person at our table had salmon and it was served a little cold and the carrots were cold for all of us but the steaks were great!
The food was really good. The service was alright, but it took a while for our waitress to take our order and seemed like a long time to get our food too. I had the Walleye and my husband had the chicken parm. It was good food in a more casual atmosphere. I would go back.
The four of us each ordered something different and it was all delicious. Service was great.
Great food and good service!
Rob , behind the bar , is a rock star. True gentleman. Will stop in again next trip to Omaha. Have pork chops with grilled onions. Great place, very old school.
We were greeted enthusiastically. Definitely a throwback right down to the somewhat talented singer in the bar. Friday night music was advertised but we were not prepared for how overwhelming it would be with unnecessary amplification . The food was okay. My bone in strip ordered medium was well done in the middle and rare in the ends. Husband t-bone was cooked as ordered. Nothing special about the
Old school restaurant and unfortunately, Just average or so-so. Certainly nothing special.
Great evening out, bison rib eye and lobster. Great flavor and tenderness. Pleasant evening all around.
Been to this establishment three times overtime because of its historical references by Mr B but I dare to say that this steakhouse is not up to today steakhouse standards and cannot keep riding/sleep on the laurels from the past. To tell you the truth.... this renowned establishment (food wise)could use a visit from Gordon Ramsey to whipped back to shape... if you get what I mean... IMO I have had better T-bone steaks from a chain restaurant than from here.
Our waitress Melissa was the best waitress I have ever met. Her service was fantastic and the steaks were over the top delicious. Gorat’s is exceptionally well priced for the food value and service. AAA+++ Best in Nebraska by far.
Rita our waitress was wonderful and so friendly. Food was amazing. In Omaha for a “bucket” trip vacation and wanted a great steak dinner.
It has been years since I was last at Gorat’s and this visit has made me a true promoter for the place! Last time I was there (probably in 2007) the food was lacking flavor and the restaurant felt stale. This time, however the food tasted great and the dining room felt more open and modern. The server was friendly and attentive and the prices are VERY reasonable. I highly recommend a dinner here!
We had a party of 6. Perfect night out with a group
The entree orders for half the table were wrong and the sides were awful.
Waitress brought me a Prime Rib sample as I was deciding between the Prime Rib and Filet Mignon. We decided to split a larger Filet so that was the reason for the sample. Very good promoting the restaurant. It was recommended by a Lincoln Ne resident. We were travelling in for the Husker game. Would come again!
The food was exceptional. The services was the only downfall. Our waitress was very abrupt, and made us feel like she was just trying to turn over tables as quickly as possible- even removing some plates before we were finished with them. Not sure we will be back, but the food was excellent!
First time we have eaten here. Waitress was great. All the staff were very friendly. Food was good. Will come back again.
Visiting relatives in Omaha and remembered dining here years ago so thought worth a re-visit. Quality of the food and cocktails were excellent and prices relative to my home town were a real bargain
Sadly, I think Gorats is past its "sell by date" This is not an inviting place as you walk in. It is in desperate need of a "flip or flop" style makeover, inside and outside.
We had a reservation for 7pm, and arrived 10-15 minutes early. The lady at the front greeted us, and then spent a good 5-10 minutes on the telephone in our full view and we could hear everything.
Our server was great, very friendly, very efficient and took care of us.
The food was OK, nothing to write home about. Presentation was lacking , but everything tasted OK.
This place is old fashioned and clearly appeals to a much older crowd who hanker for the good old days.
This place had a great atmosphere, and amazing wait staff. My wife and myself came here because of food week and we're blown away by the quality of food and service we received. The appetizers were both a delight, the steak was agreed to be the best tasting steak we had ever had the pleasure of eating, and desert beautiful rounded out the meal. I would absolutely recommend this restaurant to anyone and everyone I know.
All of our food was excellent. Christina was the perfect waitress: friendly, attentive and pleasant. Had not been to Gorat’s in years and will certainly return soon!
As always, Gorat's is one of the greatest steakhouses in Omaha. It was Omaha Restaurant Week with special menus: we both had the 6oz filet. The butcher must not have a good eye for cutting as both were big enough to fill us and have some to take home.
The service was superb. Even on a very busy night, Patricia was friendly, professional, and accurate with our orders. The bartenders make a super martini.
The only negative was the music group in the bar (singer, piano, and sax) was amplified far too much and made conversation in the dining area a little difficult.
We plan to return often.
