The first Tanner’s Bar & Grill was born in 1985 in Lenexa, Kansas. Today, there are five locations in Omaha, making it the city with the most Tanner’s. Chances are, there is one not too far from you. And if not, you may want to make the trek to experience one of Omaha’s best neighborhood taverns.
Featuring a kitchen that is open until 11 p.m. Sunday through Thursday, and until midnight on Friday and Saturday, Tanner’s is a great option for late-night eats and drinks, especially for those living in or venturing to West Omaha. The food and drink selection, great prices and friendly service have made it incredibly popular, and Omaha’s variations of the establishment reflect that level of excellence deliciously.
