Locals flock to this casual steakhouse for Whiskey Steak, prime rib and other classic cuts. Not in a steak mood? Try the King Crab leg dinner, a platter overflowing with big, meaty legs. All dinner entrees include potato, vegetable, bread and the freshest salad bar around. Rustic wooden tables, cowboy prints, low lighting and a flickering fireplace set the intimate atmosphere. The bar is especially inviting, with great service and an extremely generous pour.
If you are looking for the best steak in town, look no further than Drover. The Whiskey Filet is the finest steak I have ever had in Omaha and may be the best steak I have ever had anywhere. I travel a good deal for my job, so I have had the chance to eat at some very fine steak houses. Drover is at the top of the list. The somewhat amazing thing to me is that it is not painfully expensive. It's no more expensive than most specialty steak places I have tried across the country and less expensive than many. It may be one of the most expensive in Omaha, but I found it to be well worth the money.
I went on the Friday night a week before Christmas and was smart enough to make reservations. We walked in and I over heard the hostess telling the bartender that they can't take any more walk-ins for the night because they were completely booked up, and that was at 5:30 PM. While we did beat most of the crowd on the way in, I don't think I saw a free table on the way out. The impressive thing was that the service never slowed as the place filled up, I have yet to figure out how they manage that, but I was totally impresses. My water glass never fell below the halfway point before our waiter was topping it off again. It got a little noisy with all of the holiday gatherings going on there, but hey that is what happens at Christmas time everywhere. I can't wait to go back again !
We ate there on vacation, will NEVER go back!!!!! My husband ordered the porterhouse, my daughter the ribeye, I tried the house breaded shrimp. First off, the steaks were ordered medium rare, they came raw and cold in the middle. Really raw! They were sent back and when cooked properly the porterhouse was ok but the ribeye was very gristley and tough. Not a good cut of meat. The waiter was rude and told us a medium rare steak should be that way. NOT! I used to cook and know how a steak should be done. The shrimp was nothing great but edible. Then came our bill, Wow $120? We got no drinks, no appetisers and no desserts so I felt robbed! My shrimp was $18.95 and the steaks were the 'specials' so apparently they charged $50 each for them. What a ripoff!!
My wife and I enjoy the Drover for those special occasions like anniversary and birthdays. We especially enjoy the place in wintertime, it is warm and cozy. The prime rib is a favorite, but their other cuts of meat are good as well. It is overall a solid place to eat, especially when it is a speical night out for a married couple.
We had reservations at the Drover and some how still had to wait almost an hour before being seated. The food was just ok. I don't mind spending the money for a nice meal, but The Drover was way over priced for the quality of food and service.
The food at the Drover is wonderful, and I've never even eaten the thing they're most famous for....the steak. HOWEVER.......the Drover is sooooooooo dark, it's hard sometimes to see what you're eating. The presentation seems to lack as well, but maybe that's just because I couldn't see my plate!!! TURN THE LIGHTS ON!!!!!
Been there enough times(not by choice) to say this place is waaaaayyyy over rated. The foods ok, and service is alright, but the place looks like a restaurant slash, dungeon, tourchure chamber slash cave. Lastly, the steakes are tough.
I thought the food was good, but not worth the price. Salad bar was average. This place probably gets really good ratings because it has been around for a while and locals really like it. Otherwise, I did not see anything that great about the place.
The reason why I went was for my birthday and this web site gave it such a high rating. My rating is lower because I have had better steaks in the city for less money.
Just being honest.
