We actually ate here 3 times during our week at CWS - it was very close to our hotel, and on our way to downtown Omaha. Plus, the food and service were outstanding. Especially liked their salads (Cobb, Caprese) and their sandwiches (BLT, Pork Tenderloin)....Everything we had was delicious and of adequate portion.More

Good food, not your run of the mill chain. Hubby had the chili and said it was tasty with just the right amount of kick. House salads had fresh lettuce and hand cut veggies, not the bagged stuff you see at other restaurants. The flatbread...with chicken and spinach was seasoned well and tasted good. We love supporting local businesses, and appreciated the warm welcomes from the wait staff and the owner. Great pic for a cold rainy night!More

I’ve been here a bunch of times and always love the food. The chili is really good and so are the tacos.

This was our first visit to Tish’s - nice setting and good mid priced menu. My spouse had the Sirloin which was average in quality. I got the Salmon, which was good. Rather than the side salad that comes with the meal, I chose the...“premium” cap Rees salad for $3 upcharge. We were shocked when my salad wasps virtually identical to the regular salad, mostly iceberg lettuce. Service was good.More

This place is amazing! Owners will come out and ask how your experience with them has been. Very good food and menu selection with prices that are very reasonable! We used their backroom for our wedding reception, everyone had a good time and was able...to choose way variety of what they wanted from a menu we created from dishes off of their main menu. Highly recommend!!More

Was on the road all day and wanted a nice meal before resting to the night. Place an order and was surprised with the food. Excellent burgers and very reasonable prices.

A referral from the hotel for a non-chain dinner option. The overall experience was poor. We had a new server but her communications was very poor. She rarely checked on us, did not communicate about the late food and just was flat with no personality....The food came out very late and had little flavor. They could benefit from basic salt and pepper. The pasta alfredo was bland and they steak on my salad was ordered rare but came med rare which would have been fine but it had no flavor. Overall the value was good with a few exceptions. The dinner salad was barely enough for a child and the wine was over priced at $8 glass (Mondovi). The bright spot for my daughter was the chocolate shake. No mask policy or anything posted regarding this. We would not go back or recommend.More

we were in Iowa for a wedding and on July 10, we were driving around checking out the area, and happened upon this wonderful gem ! We were there at 1230 , and there was a huge patio which had people on it, and from...the outside this place looked kind of fancy, and thought we were under dressed, but once we got inside, it was so relaxed, and high ceilings, booths, big bar, big TV's! not crowded inside (or out) which was great due COVID! (ugh) at any rate, we each had a beer, and my hubby ordered a steak sandwhich with chips $11 ( very good ) and I had THE BEST Cobb salad, with like 6 good sized butterflied fried shrimp $14! It was a steal, SOOOOOO good. we then split cheesecake for dessert. The whole bill with tax was like $42! We would highly recomment Tish's if you are in the neighborhood of Council Bluffs, IA or Omaha, NE.More

After so much research about good fried pork tenderloin sandwiches, which is an Iowa big deal, leads us across the river into Council Bluffs. To Tish's restaurant. This place got very good reviews for the food and service. And the pork sandwich. Nice decor and...vibe. We were able to sit in their covered patio area and it was quite pleasant out there. Most employees we saw had masks including the young man who came to take our order. We quickly learned that he was very new. Meg chose the steak sandwich with salad. The young man asked if she wanted all that came on it straight from the menu, including the hoagie-the bread the sandwich came on 😀. I ordered the pork sandwich with sweet potato fries and asked what came on it since it was not listed on the menu. He looked for a bit on his little computer but eventually had to go find someone to ask. Got that straight and off he went. Salad was simple and sparse. After not too long the meals arrived. The steak on Megan's sandwich was pretty thick for eating that way, with a sad slice of cheese on top along with sauteed mushrooms and onions. She reported that the veggies were actually the best part as the steak was overcooked and tough. Turned into a knife and fork situation very quickly. My pork tenderloin was quite large, spreading out past the bun on all sides. Nice soft brioche bun well toasted but with no sauces. Lettuce tomato onion and pickle on the side. The meat seemed a little dark, like fried too long or in old oil. Same issue with the fries which were really bad. Meat very thin and crispy to the point of being somewhat dry. Should have adjusted the meat size to fit the bun better as it just wanted to slip out when I picked up the bun. The house sauce added some flavor and moisture which was nice. But I call the sandwich a disappointment, possibly due somewhat to my high expectations. I chose Tish's partially because they listed desserts from the famous Golden Boy bakery out of KC. But when I asked the waiter about the flavors available, he told me they had not been ordering pies due to slow business(Covid). They had cake and we chose the double chocolate. It came cold which stunted the flavor some but it was real good, especially the frosting. And it got better as it warmed up outside. All in all pretty disappointing.More

We wanted to have a gathering of 9 people to celebrate our family birthdays in June and an anniversary. Nebraska only allowed 6 people at a table at the time, while Iowa allowed 10. So over to Council Bluffs we went. Tish’s was our choice....We were not disappointed. All Covid protocols were in place. Food was good and April our server was excellent. Only disappointment was only 1 type of streak on the menuMore

First time to Tish’s tonight. Food was very good as was service. Really enjoyed the jalapeño and onion strings appetizer. Fish and chips were delicious with home made potato chips. Enchilada was modest in size but the flavor was great. We’ll be back!

I had the House rib eye and will honestly say it fell way short of my expectations. For the price tag I was expecting a nice cut of meat. Very thin cut and 90% fat. It was burnt to a crisp when I ordered med...rare. The veggies were cold. My wife had the crab cake dinner and could not finish it. Crab was under cook and tasted spoiled according to her. Staff was unfriendly and seemed like they had more important things to do than take our order. Never had our drinks refilled, so needless to say 1st and last visit. With so many other good places to dine out you would be better served going else where.More

We ordered salads and they were good but I thought a little pricey for the size. Nice staff but took a little while to pay.
