My wife, young daughter and I visited on March 17, 2017. We arrived at about 7:30 PM and were seated immediately. Patricia, our server took great care of us throughout our visit. We ordered the onion rings as an appetizer, as they are listed as "famous." I agree and note that the batter is nice and light and the onions... More

I hosted a business dinner here on a Friday evening a couple of weeks back and I am looking forward to hosting another one here! Great atmosphere, service and food! We offered the Salmon or the Sirloin and both were fantastic! While we had several servers; I want to thank Patricia and her entire team for taking great care of... More

We visited on Valentine's Day. It was a real treat to be in this historic restaurant. The food was very good as one might expect. The waitress was efficient and even offered to take our photo.

I took a friend and a business associate to dinner. Surprised by the decor, not very steak house like for all that I had heard about it. Didn't change the delicious food though. I ordered a ribeye and my guests ordered the prime rib. Wow, I felt like my wonderful ribeye was a fast food sandwich compared to the most... More

I've tried the 8 oz fillet, it was really great. Amazing and soft, great quality for a not-cheap price. Appetizers didn't surprise me, but it's a personal taste. If I came back, I'd take a larger steak and no appetizer. Nice place to go, recommended

My wife and I had the prime rib dinner last Saturday and it was simply amazing. Not sure why I had never been to Gorats before but I can for sure say I will be back. My waitress Patricia was also excellent! Very pleased with everything 😀

I see now why this place is a Buffet favorite. Best steak I've had in years, and at half the price I've paid at many of the pricier downtown places. We'll definitely be going back.

I had some business colleagues in town who wanted to go to Gorat's because they heard it was one of Warren Buffett's favorite restaurants. Given that it had been acquired by new owners I told them I didn't know if it would be the same quality as before. They were insistent and I'm glad they were. Everything was excellent. The... More

I had not been to Gorats for years until a recent visit. Wow what a change. A total interior remodel. The service was friendly and prompt. The food was excellent and affordable. I understand it is still locally owned, not a chain, and everything our group had was excellent.

I internet searched for the best chicken fried steak in Omaha and this place was one of several mentioned. We tried it and agree. The crispy breading and moist tender steak was tops and the to be expected home made potatoes and gravy were only topped by the onion rings and the exceptional service we received from Rita. Search no... More

Description
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!
