Omaha Restaurant Week
September 14 - 23

Get ready to celebrate Omaha's unique culinary scene with Omaha Restaurant Week, the 10 tastiest days of the year.

Omaha is known for legendary beef - steak, burgers and the classic Reuben sandwich to name a few fan favs - but the city is growing into a top destination for every culinary curious diner. Omaha Restaurant Week makes it easy for hungry diners to try all that Omaha has to offer at a reduced price. There are no tickets, passes or coupons required, simply dine out and enjoy.

Omaha Restaurant Week is a celebration of the unique, exciting culinary scene in Omaha metro. During the promotion, participating restaurants offer an exclusive special menu that features a multi-course dinner at a fixed price of $20, $30, $40 or $50 per person (also called a "prix fixe" menu). Patrons can select from their choice of appetizers, entrees and desserts. Food lovers may dine out at as many participating restaurants as they like during Omaha Restaurant Week, explore new dining opportunities or enjoy old favorites.
