Old, worn furnishings and decor. Really needs an update. Service was decent. The mean itself might as well have been from a chain steakhouse. Salad was very small and nothing special. The steaks are ok but again nothing special. The sides we bland. The mixed...More

Had the ribeye, potatoes and veggies. All were good. Not great, but a good solid meal. The apple pie and ice cream was very good. Service was friendly and attentive. Décor was a bit outdated, but overall a good experience.

Standard fare for most meals, but some really good appetizers and drinks. Friday nights has a performer singing which is fun. Waiters can be a little snippy, not sure if they are staffed well if big group or crowded, though.

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!
