Nice place to eat

Alley Rose is always a great place to eat for a couples night or night out with friends. They also have a good kids menu that is almost one of the cheapest in town. I would definitely recommend this to people.

Have had many wonderful dinners here in the past. Thought Valentines lunch buffet would be a great idea. We were afraid we would not be able to get in because Alley Rose is always packed on special occasions. It wasn't today. I guess that should have been a warning to us. I don't know what has changed.......management, the chef, owner... More

This restaurant has been around for several years, probably only because it is the only one downtown. Food is average, I don't think they have changed their menu since they opened and the menu they have is way to big for what they can handle. They would be much better if they would reduce their menu in about half and... More

Monday night, 1/27/15, seven colleagues and I dined at Alley Rose. We were seated near the front window and the piano. We ordered our meals. Six of the meals were served in a timely manner. However, my Smoke Turkey Brie sandwich, and a fellow colleague’s Shaved Prime Rib French Dip sandwich were served 15-20 minutes after the rest of our... More

Amazingly fresh and plentiful, awesome mix of greens (Healthy), great other pasta salads and condiments and soup was all fresh and very delectable. For 1$ more you can have the rest of the buffet which includes build your own sandwich and other hot items.. Ice Tea was... More

In the evenings, the wait staff really kicks it up a notch and offers probably the best service in town. Which is apt, since they serve some of the best food in town too. Their potato casseroles are not to be missed.

The staff was friendly and helpful. The food arrived quickly and was prepared to order. Everything seemed clean and kept up and we loved the historic feel of the place with all the details from room to room. Would definitely recommend as a stop off in Kearney!

Very nice eatery, with a good selection of dishes and an attentive waitstaff. Wife had the NY strip steak with peppercorn sauce. She loved the steak but was overwhelmed by the peppercorns. I had an appetizer (ARTICHOKE BRUSCHETTA) as an entree, which was plenty for me. Also tried some Nebraska red wine, better with food than by itself. All in... More

Traveling through and hoping for some of that highly advertised beef steak......knowing an upscale restaurant would be best chance. Strange thing is...we have searched for a good steak in Kansas as well as Nebraska and haven't had much luck in those huge feed lot areas. Go figure!!!! Anyway....Alley Rose was what we selected from using trip advisor reviews.....we would have... More

Whether you're grabbing a drink with friends, a formal dinner with your significant other or just stopping in for a small bite to eat for dinner, this is a must. Their steak, amazing. Their salad, delicious. Their desserts, YES PLEASE! Their drinks are delicious and competitively priced. Must visit! I recommend going by yourself or with your significant other. Not... More
