    I made reservations at Gorat's based on a post by a friend who was in Omaha attending the CWS. We were quickly seated by the hostess in one of the dining rooms that was filled with patrons, many of which were Ole Miss baseball fans like us who had attended the CWS where Ole Miss won the National Championship. Service was not the best as two tables who were seated after us were immediately waited on by their servers. Our server eventually did make her way to our table and we placed our order. Small filet ordered by my wife was great. My son and I ordered the New York strips. He enjoyed his. Mine was tougher than I expected - should have ordered the filet like my wife. Best dish - onion rings. Our meal could have been better with a more attentive server who was busier attending other tables than ours. Overall, even though the service was not as anticipated, the cost of the meal was very reasonable.

    We were disappointed in our dining experience here. We are traveling cross-country and searching out the best steak houses and BBQ joints. We read that Gorat’s was a favorite of Warren Buffett and that it has been an institution in Omaha for 70 years. So, we decided this would be our restaurant in Omaha. Unfortunately, the House Specialty T-Bone steak was overcooked—dry and tough as leather. The Filet Mignon was better—tender and tasty. The onion rings were great. The “loaded potato” was anything but. You got a potato with a small dollop of sour cream and about 3 bacon bits—I am not exaggerating. This was an add-on cost, too. The server offered to take the T-Bone back and bring out another, but we’re believers in “Get it right the first time”. So, maybe some might say “Your bad”. The hostess, Lisa, was the best thing about Gorat’s. She was lively, animated, friendly and eager to make the situation right—hence 3 stars instead of 2 stars. She took one look at the steak and immediately got the manager involved. The manager concurred with Lisa and waived the cost of the steak, making things right. Maybe we ate on an off night.

    Very cold. Three of us ordered prime rib, two medium and one medium rare. They were all identical and we were told that we had all ordered medium rare. Salad good. Dirty martini excellent. Nothing but the martini was memorable.

    Ate here twice on a recent vacation to Nebraska. Both times the food and service were excellent. We did find dining to be a little less than relaxing however, due to the noise level.

    Was very disappointed they did not have a lunch menu, just a college World Series menu which was much more expensive. Catering to out of town guests and not thinking about hometown guests is very disappointing and I think is a slap in the face of regular customers. Also this menu change was not shown on their website. Not busy at all and it took a long time for our food to arrive. Will not be going back again as there are many other choices to eat in Omaha.

    My wife and I dined here twice while in Omaha. The food was quite good and inexpensive compared with other steakhouses with similar quality food. The wine list is small but has some good selections at reasonable prices. I ordered a port for dessert and they gave me about a 6 oz. pour. Apparently they don't get many orders for port as a dessert as the standard pour typically no more than two ounces. The noise level is ridiculously high even when the dining room is only half full, making conversation difficult. In short, go for the food, not the atmosphere.

    Pluses and minuses. Great service! Whiskey Ribeye was excellent. Reduced menu variety without lamb chops, which were a favorite from the past (explained as not available at a reasonable price, though the beef was quite pricey). Prime rib was rubbery, perhaps not aged? Dining room was less than one third full on a Saturday night, which is kind of sad. Probably our last time eating there.

    Food billed wasn’t the same as the menu. Waitress spilled ice water on me and didn’t really care. No discount for sitting in cold, soaking clothes. Salad was overdressed. Wasn’t as good as I remember years ago.

    A bit over board with the cut outs of Warren B and every turn. IF the food, drinks, service were up to standards, I don’t think they’d try reminding or making you think it’s a great place to dine. Too bad, great potential

    50 minutes from ordering food to delivery. We learned the reason was the time to cook huge pork chops that were more than 2" thick. In that time, we needed to ask for drinks twice. Steaks were OK. Even after the table was finished with both salad and entrees, we had to ask wait staff to remove dirty dishes. Guessing Warren gets better service. :-)

    The steak was the only good part of this meal. The bread was soggy, the salad was not well done, the baked potato was hard as a rock and the server was really very non-attentive. Been to Gorats before but probably my worst experience.

    Second time at Gorats. They have great steaks but I chose to have prime rib. It was my fault but I ordered it a little too well but it was still good. Gorats is a great alternative to all the high end stark houses in Omaha. It’s a bit cheaper but still great quality and service.

    Did not live up to its reputation for this party of 2. My filet was wonderful but partners strip steak was undercooked (no we don't send food back) and chewy as shoe leather. Baked potatoes were not fully baked, broccoli was lukewarm to cold, bread was plain white, unheated. Warren Buffetts recomendation notwithstanding, we did not enjoy.
