Hands down, the best prime rib in Omaha. The regular cut is at least 12 ounces and probably closer to 16 for $25.99. Come with soup and salad, and your choice of side and fresh baked bread. Cooked perfectly and au jus is a nice complement. Don't expect a lot of 'atmosphere', this place is a throw back to the... More

A group of us stopped by the Pink Poodle on a Sunday afternoon for lunch. I had previously eaten here some 15 years ago when I was in Omaha for a conference. The name alone is a drawing card, but so is their food. I have no problem with the food or service. Both were above average. In fact, our... More

We stopped on the Pink Poodle for dinner on a Saturday night. Parking lot was full. Our meal was great and the service was outstanding, even though they were super busy. We were glad we stopped.

The decor of the Pink Poodle looks like it hasn't been updated for decades which kind of adds to the whole experience in a weird way. The cauliflower appetizer was absolutely delicious. The salad was pitiful - lots of brown lettuce. The bread was very good. I didn't have any soup but it smelled good. I had a club steak... More

A group of us went there for supper. Since I had never been there, was traveling, I decided to order their prime rib which is supposedly their speciality. It was OK, salad was just like the stuff you buy in bags at the grocery store, not fresh. Bean soup was very salty. Service was good.

Hi Folks. A good way to tell about a restaurant is by the rib-eye steak. My wife and I both got them. They cooked them exactly as ordered. The kitchen was fast and the service was good too. The atmosphere was "Great Plains Chic" Regards, OldeBear

We had a family birthday party here and the steaks were divine. This is a place more people should know about if they want great food in a family setting. Make time to look around at the collections or listen to the player piano.

Tonight it was three couples with kids. But wait. We ordered a platter of onion rings in homemade batter. Wonderful. They brought us four loves of fresh bread. Amazing. Then the potato soup was the BEST I have ever had. The salad was fresh and the homemade croutons were devine. Everyone loved their main course. had a variety of food:... More

I asked to go to the Pink Poodle for Valentine's Day this year. We had a reservation for 6PM. This is a casual but very homey restaurant. There is a collection of antique dolls in the entry way. There is also a collection of ceramic houses and castles. Very interesting to browse through. We both had the prime rib. The... More

I fondly remembered a visit to Pink Poodle almost 25 years ago, decided to take my wife when we passed through the area. Prime rib was as delicious as ever, still uniquely seasoned. Soups and salads were as good as ever too. We'll be back!
