Ok, I'd heard of this place for years. Driven by more times than I can count. Now that they are selling had to try it. I've been now 3 times in the last 6 weeks. The crowd tends to eat early, if you like dining at 7.30 or so you'll avoid the crowds, but some of the deserts or main... More

With the announcement of the Bohemian Cafe closing on September 24, 2016. I decided I needed to enjoy another meal in this special restaurant before it disappeared. After finishing an appointment nearby I decided to have dinner that evening. Most of Omaha appeared to have the same idea. Both parking lots were full and the line for dinner was out... More

Really enjoyed the breaded pork tenderloin with dumplings and sweet/sour cabbage, washed down with a Staropramen. Liver dumpling soup and bread were excellent as well!

My family has been eating here since shortly after it opened. My favorite restaurant in my life! It breaks my heart they are closing. Making one last pilgrimage to Omaha to eat there! No reason to go back to Omaha once they are closed. Going to be the most expensive meals of my life! I will miss you! (Hope you... More

I didn't know if I would like their food, but I am so glad I tried it. The food is amazing. The dumplings and gravy are wonderful. Great service

Unfortunately, this restaurant is scheduled to close in late September 2016. However, my husband and I are determined to visit as many times as possible before the close. The menu offers Czech dishes and they're each fabulous. Czech food can be a bit heavy, but delicious. The decor is darling.

On the last day it was open for lunch my sister and I were able to go to this classic old ethnic restaurant in Omaha. Her Czech goulash was delicious as well as was my breaded pork tenderloin. I also recommend the sauerkraut. You really should go and see this old gem before it closes for good in September, The... More

The food is fantastic. On a bus tour of ethnic cultures and we had lunch at The Behemian Café in Omaha. The food was great...terrific and the speakers and demonstrations were so informative and the love of their jobs shown throughout. Unfortunately the Bohemian café is closing in September 2016. Time to retire.........

Just moved to Omaha, and heard this place is closing in the fall, so we visited our first weekend in town. The menu is Czech food, and is tasty and well made. The sauer kraut is some of the best I've ever had. It was bustling on the Saturday we went, lots of families. Totally worth the visit, I'm sad... More
