When I was a kid in the 50s & 60s steakhouses were places with unbelievably good and affordable steaks, big ol' salad bars, even bigger knives with wooden handles and cozy spaces for the tables. Then came the chic years and steak prices soared and hipsters changed steakhouses from homey family places to, well, chic places. Thank heavens for Drovers,... More

Wanted a great steak in Omaha and eat a ribeye at the top steak houses when traveling around the country. Chose this place due to the great reviews but what a big mistake! The ribeye (medium rare) arrived and was beautifully seared on one side and the other side has absolutely no sear or char at all. The first cut... More

Drover rises unassumingly out of a part of town where you wouldn't necessarily expect to see a steak house. Don't let that put you off. The steaks are amazing! Drover is very dark inside so bring your night vision glasses when you first come in. Once your eyes adjust, the combo of rustic wood and brick is warm and welcoming.... More

Finally got to try The Drover after a couple of failed attempts when in town. We were told 20 minutes wait so settled in for a drink at the bar which became 3 drinks as the 20 minute wait was more like 40 but the bar area had a good feel so this was not a problem. Great salad bar.... More

My husband and I have been coming here for years. The Drover has steak out of this world!! We always get the whiskey marinade filet and it literally melts in your mouth. By far my favorite restaurant!!!

If you want a perfect steak, have the ribeye. It is one of the best meals I have eaten. But be careful, it was $40.

My husband and I wanted to go to a steakhouse while in Omaha and this was our choice. We got quite the kick out of the old-time 70's feel of the place, it looks just like my husbands parents basement, LOL. So my husband had the whiskey marinated prime rib, with a baked potato, and the salad bar, all of... More

Went w/6 other colleagues, didn't have reservations, but despite being advised 40 minute wait, was seated in 15. Drink waitress was fun, brought my buddy a bowl of cherries, and then another plate of limes w/whip cream - guys having fun... My steak was delicious - although, I think they only heard the rare part of medium rare... Decor is... More

we had the pleasure of going to the Drover for steak dinner on a recent visit to Omaha from Ireland. I ordered the 14oz ribeye. for starters the salad bar was lovely and fresh and well stocked. The steak came with baked potato. It was fabulous it just melted as I cut into it. Would definately recommend this restaurant.

One of the best marinated ( bourbon) steak I have ever had. Friendly owner and wait staff. MUST call for reservation. Worth the price
