Wood-Fired Pizza in Omaha, NE

There is something for everyone at the Midtown Crossing Smokin’ Oak Pizza.

Dan and Maribeth saw another opportunity in the Smokin’ Oak brand: They selected a Smokin’ Oak Pizza & Taproom. Here, food lovers enhance their pizza by visiting a self-pour tap wall with over 25 drinks on tap, including beers, wines, ciders, and mixed cocktails.

Its 15 big-screen TVs make this spot a must on game days. The outdoor dining features one of the largest, most scenic patios in Omaha.  Three outdoor fire pits, as well as portable heaters, provide comfortable outdoor seating on cool evenings. Unique to this location are a beautiful Wine Room, meeting spaces for up to 40 guests, as well as large patios that can be reserved for private events.

This Smokin’ Oak Wood-Fired Pizza is in the heart of Omaha at Midtown Crossing on 32nd and Farnam. It’s just minutes from downtown, Creighton University, and Mutual of Omaha, directly off of Dodge and Farnam Streets. And it’s just five minutes from UNO and one mile from UNMC, making Smokin’ Oak a must-visit for the college crowd. They offer third-party delivery, curbside pickup, online ordering, and a welcoming dining room and patio for you to enjoy an outstanding dining experience.

Dan and Maribeth also have an inviting message to residents of Omaha and those visiting the area: “We can’t wait to share our truly fresh pizza experience with you.”
