The title says it all. I go here for business lunches when someone else is paying for it. The food is good. Actually the steaks are excellent. The salad bar is lame. They actually have a plaque stating that it is the first salad bar...More

Every time we are passing by Omaha we stop in here for a delicious steak. The ribeye steaks are so melt in your mouth yummy. Included salad bar with the steak has limited options to choose from. Service is always friendly and fast. The decor...More

We love this place. The environment makes the experience but is also difficult when eating with older people (dark and can be loud). Steaks are always great and the salad bar is phenomenal.

Ambiance is casual and definitely a 80s/90s dark and cozy vibe. Ranch dressing and croutons. Sides and non-steak items are whatever, but the bourbon marinated steaks are unbelievable. One of kind and truly exceptional flavor. Worth going just to have it.

The Drover is a rough and ready environment - a rustic pub-like restaurant. Inside it is fairly dark with lots of small tucked away areas for seating. This is a very popular place but we had no problem being seated for a mid-week evening meal...More

With all of the positive reviews, the four of us were looking forward to “the best steak in the country.” Unfortunately, it was far from it. To say the steak and the rest of the meal was average is being kind. The NY Strip Steak...More

I've been to The Drover on two business trips and haven't been disappointed either time. The filet is excellent, tender, and juicy. The decor and lower lighting really adds to the ambiance. I definitely recommend the filet.

I have been coming to The Drover for over 25 years and it just doesn’t get any better than this in Omaha. The steaks are great as is the Prime Rib. Their whiskey marinated sirloin is fantastic. This is the way steak houses used to...More

I would suggest a reservation. They are regularly busy with a wait list. I dont think they have a designated kids menu but they can make many of their options in a kids portion or recommend something like a grilled cheese... More
