I've been craving wiener schnitzel recently and was surprised that, other than a vegan place here in Omaha, Gerda's was the only one with several varieties of schnitzel on the menu. Off we went...and there was NO disappointment in any way. We were a party...More

Food didnt live up to our expectations the people and service was great. Red cabbage was over cooked. Spatzle served with no gravy and was bland. On bright side potatoe salad was good as was sausages and the potatoe pancakes

New to the area, this is where I chose to go for my birthday dinner. It was amazing! From the liver dumpling soup to the Black Forest Cherry Torte, I will be frequenting Gerda’s as my new favorite restaurant in Omaha!

We were working at Offutt AFB and was looking for a German restaurant near the hotel. This one popped up. Food was average for a German restaurant and service was good as well. Good, not an exceptional visit.

Charming little restaurant owned by Gerda for over 50 years!! There's a reason it's been around that long, and that's because the food is wonderful and the service is friendly and fast. We go in for the lunch specials, particularly the meatloaf, and the fried...More

Was in the mood for an old fashioned German meal and this place fits the bill. I left so full of potato pancakes and schnitzel.
