Recently I hosted a holiday family reunion at Bohemian Cafe. Omaha was an easy location for family members traveling from Nebraska, Iowa, South Dakota, California, and North Carolina to meet. In setting it up, I requested the use of their party room which I was told only was available for groups over 30. Approximately 5 days in advance, I called... More

We were traveling across I-80 and decided to stop for a good lunch in Omaha. What a delightful surprise!! This is a step back into the past -- a 60s diner feel complete with polka music and awesome Czech food. So glad we took the time and drove the mile off the interstate. Two of us had goulash with sweet... More

Legit one of the best meals I've ever had. This is heavy hearty down home cooking from the old world. Liver Ball soup is a must! AND THE BEER - YES! HUGE STEINS! and real cool. A little Omaha hidden gem!

I have always enjoyed eating out in the past at the Bohemian Cafe, but the last two times I went there was a bad experience.. The first unfortunate situation was when my daughter and I and my 18 month old grandchild went there at lunch time. Knowing that my grandchild would not be able to eat that type of food,... More

The old radio jingle above says it all. The hasenpfeffer is great and the dumplings are almost as good as the ones my mother used to make. Not for the fast food crowd, this is food with a unique taste and presentation.

Go to this fine establishment and it's like having grand ma's cooking. The food is very tasty and the beer is cold. It's a blast from the past. Even the waitresses remind you of your grandmother, friendly service with a smile. Best of all was the quality and amount of food.

definitely my mother's favorite place when she wants cooking like her mother made. usually hit this establishment once per trip when they come out here. Don't bother with any of the other German restaurants in the city (which are very few now). Just a couple minutes south of downtown, ample parking. And just enough kitsch to make you know you...

While the Bohemian Cafe offers an increasingly rare opportunity to sample ethnic Czechoslovakia food, it's really more an opportunity to step back into the 1950s - knotty pine paneling painted with Czech motifs, old but friendly waitresses dressed in dirndls, complete dinners with bread, soup, entree and coffee or tea. This is the way your parents - or grandparents -... More

My wife and I stopped for early dinner on a Sunday afternoon.. The restaurant is tastefully decorated and well maintained as a 90-year-old local eatery. I ordered liver dumpling soup, which was delicious with only a very mild organ flavor. My main course was breaded sweetbread, with sweet and sour cabbage and dumplings. Very large portions. I had never eaten... More

My husband is from Omaha and this is a "must do" every time we visit! Great food and wonderful ethnic beer. I love the dark Czeck beer. If you have room for dessert, the poppyseed kolache just fills the bill! We love the Sauerbraten (svickova) and the dumplings with sweet and sour cabbage. Don't miss this opportunity. We have tried... More
