Top-quality steaks, an extensive wine list, exemplary service and a sophisticated setting make Omaha Prime one of the most popular fine-dining destinations in Nebraska. The intimate setting seems right in step with the steakhouse’s location in Omaha’s historic Old Market district. Guests have several seating options, including the main dining room adorned with abstract art, at a charming bar with rustic brick walls, downstairs at another bar, or overlooking the Old Market passageway. Classical background music adds to the already rich ambience.
Nebraska-raised USDA prime steaks are the highlight of the menu and are presented to customers for inspection before they make their dining selections. Steaks, chops, chicken and seafood entrees run $29.95 to $49.95. One of the smaller portion sizes available, the 8-ounce filet ($29.95) is tender, juicy and utterly delicious. With sides and sauces all served a la carte, tabs can add up quickly. The good news is that most sides are enough to feed three people, especially the ginormous baked potato ($4.95) and the spinach salad ($7.95) with a sweet strawberry vinaigrette.
This isn’t the kind of dinner most folks can afford on a regular basis, but for a special-occasion splurge, it’s worth every penny.
