We had the deviled eggs as an appetizer. They were so salty I couldn't eat but one. The entree was nothing special. It was a combo with 3 items. A chicken enchilada which was dry, a steak and mushroom enchilada which was odd tasting and...More

We ended up here accidentally after our intended restaurant next door had a huge wait for a table on a Saturday evening. "Grill and Bar" wasn't exactly what we had in mind, but it was close by, so... We ended up enjoying everything about our...More

Stokes has a Southwestern flair to its menu, and the Southwestern food is very good, but Stokes has plenty of other menu items including a variety of salads and grilled salmon. The chicken enchiladas, a signature dish, are very good. Overall, the food is consistently...More

A large family group of 12 dined here on a Saturday night. The service was remarkably quick for such a large table. The chicken burrito was fantastic. The pig wings appetizer was good, not as awesome as other pork shanks I've had, but good. The...More

Not your typical Tex Mex restaurant....chips and salsa are good. The guacamole was decent but nothing special. My dish was enchiladas smothered in a white cheese cream sauce and pulled pork in a poblano pepper with cowboy beans (not refried) and rice. Very good taste...More

We arrived after a long flight and were seated right away. Our server was really upbeat and friendly. She was knowledgeable about which bourbons were available for an old fashioned without having to check. She made sure the steak ordered came out just Pittsburg rare....More

We went to Stokes for lunch today. Their chicken tortilla soup was spicy and delicious. My husband had the special that will soon be on the regular menu. It was called barbqued pork wings. He loved them.

In 1998, feeling the creative talents of (then-Champps) Chef John Ursick were not reaching their full potential, they brainstormed the idea of Stokes Grill & Bar. Stokes is a unique southwestern concept featuring one of Omaha's best wine lists with over two hundred selections. After a very successful first decade, Stokes opened a second location in the Old Market of Omaha. In 2012, the original Stokes moved into a larger building near Boys Town on Dodge.
