Description: Gorat's Steak House has been an Omaha tradition for more than 69 years. Founded in 1944 by Louis and Nettie Gorat, and subsequently operated by their son, Louis, Jr. - affectionately known as “Pal” - and his family, Gorat’s has catered to generations of Omaha families and visitors alike, proudly serving quality steaks, Italian specialties and other local favorites. Omaha restaurateur purchased Gorat’s in the fall of 2012 and after an updating of the interior and kitchen, reopened in December of 2012. The menu continues the tradition of local Italian steak house fare with the addition of new favorites such as signature entrees, tantalizing salads and freshly prepared pastas. A frequent stop of the “Wizard of Wall Street” Warren Buffett, Gorat’s has hosted celebrities and dignitaries from around the world. Whether you are a new visitor or someone whose family has previously enjoyed the Gorat’s Steak House tradition, we welcome you and wish you buon appetito!

“Oracle of Omaha's Favorite”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

My recent visit was excellent, food was prepared exactly as expected. Service was great and the restored interior to the original 1940's look was very appealing.

“Great Place For Dinner”
Reviewed March 1, 2014

I attended a business dinner here on a week night. I had a small filet which was the best I have ever had. The place is completely remodeled and was really nice. If you are in Omaha, it's certainly worth visiting. Fast friendly service without being rushed.

“It's Been 22 years, but still excellent”
Reviewed February 14, 2014

We had dinner tonight at Gorat's, for Valentine's Day. My husband and I, and two teenagers. We used to be frequent customers, but sort of fell out of the going out to eat scenario when we had kids. We had three reservations for tonight - and chose this one. I am so glad we did. Our meal was excellent - food was absolutely delicious, but I must say, the one thing that stood out the most? Was the service. All of the service was outstanding - they seemed very sincere, and honestly cared about our dining experience. Even the teens picked up on this - we seem to have fallen into the "chain" restaurants so much, that is why tonight was so special. We will definitely be back. Felt appreciated, and the folks there were glad to see us. Loved it.

One of the best Rib Steaks I have ever had. There was a super amount of food and was very reasonably priced. Will return when in Omaha..

“Outstanding filet”
Reviewed December 28, 2013 via mobile

Our kids moved to Omaha recently and this is our first visit. Three of us had the filet and it was excellent. The fourth person had the chicken fried steak and enjoyed that as well. The service was wonderful. We would definitely go back.
