It has been an city favorite for many years. Not a place we have eaten at in many years but chose to go there for our 45th anniversary. We were greeted well, server was great. Our whiskey prime tasted great but seemed fatty. Hubby had a rather large pile of fat on his plate. He took home a small piece... More

We have eaten at The Drover many times. We almost always have one of the several whiskey steaks. This night our waiter suggested the Pork Chops so we decided to give them a try. Perfectly cooked on the open flame grill, they were outstanding. I can't believe we have not tried them before. They also have a very nice wine... More

This is the best steak in Omaha, unequivocally. You can't beat the ambiance of this restaurant as it is one of the last old time Omaha steakhouses.

The Drover is my husband's restaurant of choice for every special occasion. The whiskey filet is, without question, the best steak either of us has ever eaten. And it is always amazing! The salad bar is also one of the best in town! You never have a lack-luster experience at the Drover.

We live three hours from Omaha but when we do get to Omaha "The Drover" is always on our agenda. Love the Bone-in ribeye and the fillet and the bacon wrapped shrimp is expensive but worth it. Good salad bar also. Service is always great.

Prime rib was one of the best I ever had and it was cooked to order! And salad bar was the best quality you can find? A bit pricey but worth it!

Went to lunch with our son and his girl friend. No prime rib left. Had a mediocre pork tenderloin. Need to go back for the dinner menu sometime.

This place continues to amaze me at the consistent quality, tenderness and all around awesome Whisky Filet. I have been to this place many times and continue to take my customers there as you can always count on great service and a damn fine Whiskey Filet.

Although many people from Omaha recommend the place as a great steakhouse I just don't agree. The location is odd. It's far from downtown and far from businesses on the far west side. I thought the atmosphere was uninspired and the steaks were just OK.

The Drover is a staple of Omaha. I believe you can't get a better steak in the city than at the Drover. If you want new ambiance this is not the place for you. If you want true nostalgia and a great meal you won't be disappointed in then don't hesitate. I take many of our out of town clients... More
