Great food, especially the steaks. Only minor comments were slight over salting of the steak and an over-steamed vegetable medley, but everything else was delicious, including the pumpkin cheesecake.

Our server was also wonderful.

Nice crowd. Was glad to see. Ordered a filet but it was under cooked. I didn’t send it back cuz my boyfriend loves rare but I ordered Medium light not rare. Onion rings and salad good. Pasta sauce was not good…… I used to love their sauce but this was paste plus dried spices…… too bad to lose Netties sauce. Burgers are great. Fries very good. Service very good! Fun atmosphere. Overall a nice evening. Love Omaha’s local destinations!

We set in the lounge for live music. Great atmosphere. Very busy and loud but that’s what we were looking for, an experience! Our server was attentive. Other diners were very nice and you could tell this was a place where local people come to enjoy good food and good service. Dinner portions were HUGE. Everything was delicious. 10/10 recommend

This is clearly THE place to go for a filet and french fried onion rings! My dinner was exceptional with that old Italian steakhouse flavor. My mouth waters just remembering it.

Rita is the server we always ask for. She is outstanding. If she knows you well your drink of choice will be waiting if you make reservations and ask for her. Plus, she's a comedian and will keep you laughing.

For whatever reason we were expecting Gorat's to be a much fancier restaurant than it is. We found it very casual and comfortable with an old steak house feel. Service was efficient and friendly. We both ordered the 6 oz. tenderloin and it was delicious and perfectly done. Cauliflower was the vegetable of the day; a bit over cooked but still pretty good. We asked for extra crispy hash browns but they were not.

We went to Gorat's hoping for a great steak and they delivered. One thing we found strange was that no bread was brought to our table. We asked the server and she said so many people are on Keto diets that they waste bread because of it. We would have liked to have been asked so probably best to give the customers a choice.

Waitress was barely there. We were not told about the specials. We ask to place our order when we ordered our drinks but she must not have heard us ask I guess. 10 mins later as she is walking by I ask if we can place our order. She goes to get our drinks, comes back the drinks weren't ready, no biggie it's dinner time. Takes our order. My steak was close to well done than medium. The other steak was also over cooked, medium rare but got closer to med-well. The sides were delicious. We didn't have a chance to tell our server because she wouldn't stop to ask. Just literally walking past asking, everything good? I could spot 1 or 2 bussers, at least 1 other waitress working the same dining room. Thus why we could not understand the lack of service. This also was the 2nd time in a row I've received terrible series at Gorat's. Extremely disappointing for the cost.

Truly one of our very favorite places. Everyone is so friendly and attentive. Our food was wonderful and I loved the french onion soup. I argue that their onion rings are better than anywhere.

Loved our steak dinners. The whiskey sauce on sirloin was sweet and tasty. The loaded baked potato was yummy. My spouse had the strip steak. Both steaks were perfectly prepared. Our server was friendly and attentive. The kitchen was a bit slow but allowed time to relax and enjoy our evening!

Great place. One of the old style steak houses famous in Omaha. The decor is from like from the 70’s—dark colors, old style pictures and furniture. The front entrance looks like it came from the 60’s (check out the weird bull masks with the lights in the eyes) Not the place for swanky romantic dinners. If you’re looking for great steaks—you came to the right place. The chicken fried steak was incredible and so was the whiskey rubbed rib eye. Prices on the higher side(steaks range in the $20’s-$50), but the Italian food was cheaper. The service was very good—our server Rita was quick and attentive.

We heard that this is one of Warren Buffet’s favorite steak places—rumor has it he bought the place during the pandemic cause it was going under.

Was looking for somewhere new to try for our 20th wedding anniversary dinner. First time at Gorat’s and will definitely plan to dine there again. Nice old family steakhouse feel. Service was great. The menu selection offered plenty of options and the steak was delicious as were the appetizer and sides. Thank you Gorat’s for a wonderful evening.

We loved the restaurant and food! Our only regret was our server had a table of 10 so we felt ignored much of the night. Another server didn’t step in to help. Aside from that everything was great!

Celebrated our 1st Anniversary here. Excellent toasted ravioli appetizer, whisky ribeye was amazing and so was the prime rib. Was very busy, which was great to see and service was very good considering how busy it was. Had never been here before, but love to support local businesses and will definitely be back!

This was our first visit to Gorat's and it was very nice. We loved the sound of the band in the other room. Only wish we had a closer spot. The service was exceptional! Our waitress handled 7 people like a pro! The food came out hot and well flavored. I wish I remembered her name but her service spoke volumes. She has been doing this for quite some time and then again she may have been a natural. Very nice spot for a Friday night.

I have been to Gorats many times before and had no issues. This time we made reservations, when we got there we had to wait at least 30 min to be seated. They were short on wait staff. The servers were working really hard. My steak and others at my table came out rare instead of medium rare and had to send them back. It was a bad experience but considering everywhere is short staffed, not sure if it gets any better.

Unpretentious. Delicious. This may become one of our favorite places. We felt very at home. The restaurant didn't try to prove itself in decor... the proof was in the food and the service. Refreshing after all the smoke and mirrors most places use.
