Recently, Omaha, Nebraska, was ranked as the third best city to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day, thanks to its large Irish population and a slew of Irish Pubs where the Guinness flows. But, did you know Omaha boasts some incredible local restaurants serving up the Irish Classics? Here are our TOP Choices for St. Patrick's Day eats around the Omaha metro area.

The Omaha Bakery 

You don’t need to be Irish to eat Irish Soda Bread. Swing by the Omaha Bakery and grab a couple of loaves on your way to work! Rustic flavour, great crust, keeps well for days. Slather with butter, mop your plate clean, dunk into soups or Irish Beef and Guinness Stew! 

Brazen Head Pub

Come hungry because they've got it all! An Omaha favorite throughout the year serves up traditional meals including their famous Irish potato pancakes! Doors open at 6:00 am. 

Paddy McGown's 

A St. Patrick's Day destination for those seeking a unique and festive experience! Festivities start early so don't be late! Facepainting, live music, bagpipes, Reuben egg rolls, and their famous Irish stew!

Porky Butts BBQ

Omaha may be the birthplace of the Reuben but Four-Time World Champion pitmaster Blane Hunter perfected it! Blane and his pit crew will be serving up slow-smoked sliced pastrami and pastrami burnt ends throughout the day. Quite possibly the best pastrami you'll experience on St. Patrick's Day. 


Barrett's Barleycorn Pub & Grill

A fan-favorite of foodies throughout the year, Barrett's Barleycorn never disappoints and this year will be no different. Scrambled eggs and hash in the morning, bagpipes, food trucks, and live music...what's not to love?
