Something different!

Every time I fly into Omaha I make a point to stop here. It's a great place for anyone to dine- all ages appropriate. It appears to be an old, old building- all the architecture and high ceilings have some real character for those of you who like that kind of charm. Phone booth tables and... read more

Food is delicious, getting those unlimited refill pasta bowls are just right for those that are hungry. And you can mix and match - getting different kinds of spaghetti on the refills. Wish you can go to salad bar more than once, but still better than nothing. Just load up first time around if you want lots of salad. FYI... More

We have tried spaghetti works a couple different times and found the same conclusion on both. The food is just OK, nothing special matter of fact I'm not so sure their alfredo sauce doesn't come from a jar. The salad bar is basic as well as the wine list. The prices are very reasonable and for families this is probably... More

Took the whole family here and for most it was their first time, everyone loved it - we had a variety of food from the lasagna, ravioli, combination platter, chicken strips and it was good and came very quickly. I think our waitress may have been relatively new but she did an awesome job.

It had been awhile since being here to eat. With its close proximity to our hotel we decided it was a good fit for us and our five year old. Great service and a yummy pesto chicken special made it a good meal. Ravingly good? No but enjoyable nonetheless. Great location and cool decor fits the Old Market scene.

Spaghetti Works is a budget-friendly place to go (especially in the Old Market) that always has great service and great food. Salad bar is excellent!

I've been here several times over the years and it remains a favorite. The food is decent and price is reasonable. They keep a nice selection of fresh stuff for the salad bar and I've never been disappointed. The Spaghetti can be a little watery at times but the taste is still good, especially the hot sausage / meat sauce.

Not terrible, basic pasta dishes that are mildly flavorful and large in size. Not gourmet but fine for a night out with friends and kids.

It's been awhile since I've eaten here with the family. We went on a Saturday afternoon and were instantly seated and greeted by our waiter. The menu has an enormous amount of pasta dishes/combinations to choose from and the salad bar seems to have been upgrade with more selections. Everyone at our table thoroughly enjoyed their meal and the waiter,... More
