Delicious whisky steaks, friendly service

The whisky fillet is the specialty at Drover and even if you are not a fan of the liquor, I would highly recommend it as it is not at all overpowering. The filet is the perfect portion and do yourself a favor, order the baked potato to go with. I could not order dessert but the cheesecake is... read more

Off the beaten path, but well worth it for a nice juicy & tasty steak. Atmosphere is dark & quaint, reminiscent of a traditional 80's steakhouse. The service was prompt & efficicent. I had the whiskey 10oz sirloin which was grilled perfectly with tons of flavor & my husband had the whiskey NY strip. My husband is a major steak... More

I have been to this local steak house many times in the last few years with colleagues, customers and family. It is a small place with a lot of old school character and charm. The Whiskey Filet is absolutely one of the best tender steaks you will find anywhere in Omaha. I would highly recommend this place and hope they... More

Nice place. Old school steak house feel to it. Had a great Prime Rib with all the trimmings. Horrible service. Waitress that we had was better cuties for a cocktail bar.

If you like steak, and you're in the general vicinity of Eastern Nebraska/Western Iowa, The Drover is where you need to be. Yep, steaks marinated in Whiskey! Its their signature meal, and you won't be disappointed! The Service was great, all the food was awesome, but the steak was the PIÈCE DE RÉSISTANCE! By the way, I had the WHISKEY... More

For us the steaks were good, great, enough to make Omaha a destination just to visit Drover's. We both had prime rib whiskey style. We sat at the Bar, mostly traveling business guys, with 2 locals. We learned that the majority of staff was very long term, up to 42 years, and most 15 years or more. The bar tender... More

Hands down an exceptional steak house! I had an 18-oz bone-in ribeye and it was cooked to perfection (medium rare)! I cannot say enough at the excellent technique that was used to season and sear and slowly cook my steak. I'm not going to bore you with the sides or anything else we ate because the steak alone says enough.

If you want a great steak the Drover is your best bet. Great steaks and super waitstaff. All sizes of steaks but the whiskey steak and t- bone are unbelievable.

One of my favorite steakhouse in Omaha. They have a anomalous Whiskey marinade. The only negative is finding the restaurant but the food alone is worth it!
