I internet searched for the best chicken fried steak in Omaha and this place was one of several mentioned. We tried it and agree. The crispy breading and moist tender steak was tops and the to be expected home made potatoes and gravy were only topped by the onion rings and the exceptional service we received from Rita. Search no... More

Enjoyed the atmosphere and food. The onion rings are not to be missed. Our group stuck with steak and was not disappointed. There are many fine new restaurants in Omaha but you should check out Gorat's. Very cool old school bar as well.

Have not been to Gorat's for sometime, so decided to give it a try. This place is so comfortable and I love the friendly staff. It just makes a meal so enjoyable. We had a couple of different steaks and both were very good and cooked to order. Just like an old fashioned Steak House, they still serve Hash Browns,... More

Nice place. The loaded potato soup was crazy good and everything was made from scratch. A jazz band was playing which made everything that much better. Loved the inside of this restaurant.

The service here was great, and the steak was top notch. The salad and starter seemed a little pre-fab, like they had come straight out of the fridge (they both were so cold that it was hard to taste the food) after being made hours earlier. But the entree steak was perfectly cooked and delicious. The dessert was cold too,... More

Took a spur of the moment trip to Omaha to visit grandkids. Stopped in for a late dinner on Saturday night. My wife and I both had filets and they were perfectly cooked, tender and flavorful. No complaints. Always enjoy a steakhouse that offers hash browns and they were great. Our server was very good as well. We will definitely... More

I stopped in tonight while in Omaha on business. My server Rita was terrific meeting all of my needs and quickly. I had prime rib which was tender and terrific served with fresh horse radish. Included was a decent side salad and 2 sides. The waitress over heard me talking on the phone about my birthday so she served me... More

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!
