I've been here more times than I can count since I was a child but it's only been within the last couple of years that I've grown to appreciate and love the food that Bohemian Cafe has to offer. The kolaches are wonderful and their duck, dumplings and gravies are a family favorite. Every time we're in Omaha to visit,... More

I have had several of their roast beef dishes. Sweet gravys and the sweet and sauer cabbage is the best ever. Good potatoes and the music played over the sound system is polka and wonderful. Took my parents and they loved it. The menu is on the website.

The food here is either way too salty (avoid the soup) or often too sweet (everything else). Some days are better, some worse (a different cook?). Prices for lunch are pretty good, otherwise too high. They started a loyalty program but when you buy lunch for two you only get ONE stamp on two SEPARATE loyalty cards. That was explained... More

My husband and I aren't local but we drive thru Omaha on a regular basis and this is the only place we HAVE to visit for lunch each time we pass thru. We have even taken all our family members here and gotten them hooked, too! They have a liver dumpling soup (trust me it doesn't take like liver, just... More

If you remember how Aunt Mildred or you put in your family members's name made duck and dumplings this is where to go and be reminded. Order the sweet and sour cabbage, 1/2 duck with dressing and gravy, and liver dumpling soup. Better than any meal we had in Prague.

I have been coming here since I was a kid, even though I didn't move to Omaha until 1989. My mom "discovered" this place with some fellow students when she was in Omaha doing a 3-month nursing degree rotation. Over the years I graduated to the liver dumpling soup and the sweet and sauer cabbage (my father's favorites) and have... More

re-visited this establishment again on a Sunday evening - they had beef and pork specials - I had pork with dumplings and sauerkraut and a side of mashed potatoes with a pilsner to wash it down with. I also had chicken and noodle soup . My dinner was excellent and ran around $20+ . My friends had liver and dumpling... More

Let me start by saying I am of Bohemian extraction; my surname means "little house".I am also the son of a master baker; so I have very definite ideas about what this particular cuisine should be like. The Bohemian Cafe fills the bill; from the first sip of the liver dumpling soup to the last crumb of the poppy sead... More

Ate there with out of town friends the week of 9/10. The husband is Czech and had heard good things. We were looking forward to rich food and thick gravies. Sorry to report that none of us thought it was "all of that." Canned vegetables for sure, seemed like canned foodservice grade gravy, uninspired food all around. Top it off... More

I have loved this restaurant all my life...like literally...this was the first place I visited as a child after we left the hospital after my birth back in 1974!! Wonderful lifetime of memories eating here, enjoying friends and family! Prices are very reasonable for what you are given! Come hungry because portions are huge! Or come for lunch in which... More
