Go early for the great lunch buffet.

A comfortable, relaxed atmosphere. Great salad bar, good deli selection. I've only been here for lunch and I've enjoyed it every time.

We stayed in Kearney the last night of our vacation. We checked out The Alley Rose through Trip Advisor for dinner. We truly enjoyed everything! The atmosphere, the wait staff and the food. If you're staying in Kearny don't miss this little gem.

Very nice experience. Service was awesome. Food was good and setting was enjoyable. Potato casserole was okay but lasagna rolls were very good.

Good food and atmospheric surroundings. Unfortunately the service was painfully slow, even for a Saturday night.

For nearly twenty years, I have found this restaurant to be excellent. Though we're no longer greeted by waiters with towel over an arm (they are changing with the times, you know) Alley Rose continues to draw in quiet, well behaved tourists, families, business people, couples, etc. The seafood bisque - replete with clams in shell - was delicately flavored...

Friday night with live classical Brahms being played from the grand piano! Good dynamics but self corrected several technical errors. Old restored brick building, with tin typed ceiling tile. Service was immediately with ample seating. Wine list was extensive and varied. The menu was varied as well. To our surprise the dinners came with the soup and salad bar! The... More

There are many people that like Alley Rose. I am not a fan. The food is middle of the road, but prices are high end. They like to think of themselves as high end and I think they are a bit rude and pretentious. I have gone here several times, as the friends I'm with chilies this restaurant. I'm am... More
