Love that the dog could come too. Spectacular burger and the meatloaf, and chicken fried chicken got the thumbs up as well. The staff was very nice. Regret not getting the Kahlua ding dong for dessert. Next time! Great view of the park too.

In town to visit our son at Creighton so we had a family dinner with his roommate and our family dog. Had called ahead for reservations for the group of five with the dog and said there would be no problem out on the patio. However when we arrived, we were told only a table of four with a dog...

Thanks for your review. I'm glad to hear your family enjoyed the atmosphere and your dinners. We do love our pet friendly patio (one of only three in the City of Omaha). Our local ordinance took a little getting used to, but it's worth it because our dog loving guests really appreciate it. It's a few extra steps - we... More

Very nice meal. We all got a different burger. It was our first trip and we will go back. My Burger had Jalepeno and Pepper Jack Cheese. Beef was cooked to order and was flavorful. Multiple napkins needed. Juicy and Cheesy deliciousness. Fries were crispy and tasty. We shared onion rings. They were good.

Great service, water refilled every time, reuben sandwich good, no pickle on side to make a statement, and the fries are another topic. First, round of them partner didn't want the salt, second try, When they came out you could smell the sour or fowl odor from the oil. Tried one or two, then called server over to try. He... More

I love this place for lunch, but recently dined here at night with my family for my birthday celebration. I wanted somewhere nice that would be okay to take two grandkids. We had a great experience. While it is basically casual dining, it has enough atmosphere to be a lovely experience. We were seated where the kids could look outside... More

The atmosphere is bar/pub, the service was fine, and they brought a sweet and sour sauce when the original sauce for the coconut shrimp was way to hot. Not great, not bad.

Even though I've been here numerous times with work colleagues, my family had not had the experience. Meatloaf is one of my favorites with garlic mashed potatoes and steamed broccoli.

Ranking Top 10 in Nebraska's Best Burger for two years, Black Oak Grill celebrates the great American tradition with comfort cuisine food. With quality steaks from local Wohlner's Grocery, juicy burgers and gourmet sandwiches, Black Oak Grill finds its roots in a broad range of urban grills, neighborhood cafes, boulevard bistros and corner taverns. Stop in for Sunday Brunch. Enjoy a wide selection of local craft beers and great Happy Hour specials. In warmer weather, enjoy the dog-friendly patio with gorgeous views of Turner Park. Not sure what to order? General Manager Mike Cizek recommends starting out with Spinach & 5 Cheese Dip or Fried Goat Cheese. For lunch, enjoy 20 delicious dishes for under $10, like slow-roasted Baby Back Ribs or the Black Oak Salad. At dinner, savor an incredibly tender Ribeye Steak, bacon and fried egg Husker Burger, Smoked Chicken & Avocado Club, or Iron Skillet Trout. Finish off the experience with a chocolate ganache-filled Kahlua Ding Dong. On Sundays, stop in for brunch, with cinnamon-vanilla French Toast, Biscuits & Gravy, and amazing omelets. Plan a party with Pulled Pork Sliders, mini Clubhouse sandwiches and more. We can accommodate parties of up to 75. Or reserve the whole restaurant.
