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

On our road trip from Lincoln to North Platte, we discovered this gem in Kearney! The best salad bar ever! Not only an amazing selection of items but the salad bar was constantly replenished and kept clean. There are many salad bars everywhere but most do not have the selection or the delicious dressings offered at Alley Rose. My daughter... More

As a local, I have been here many times, from Valentine's Day celebration, baby showers, lunch with friends, or drinks on a Friday night. The Rose can be expensive, I would say the best time to go is during the week for lunch, if possible. The price is great, less than $10 the last I had lunch there, and you... More

After living in western Nebraska quite a few years ago we found ourselves traveling back through with our four school age children, my husband, my mother in law, and myself. The Alley Rose was a favorite while we lived out here and it didn't disappoint today! They have an excellent lunch buffet with the most fantastic potato casseroles you've ever... More
