The food was the same as any other Red Lobster. We came at a time they were not busy so there was only 2 other tables that our waitress had to serve. She came to the table and was quite friendly, then it was almost impossible to get a refill for water or anything else for that matter.

Food was good but the service was not very good at all. The waitress was non available. I have eaten at many Red Lobsters and this one was as good as any.

If you're traveling through Nebraska on Mothers Day, I can't think of a better place to stop than Red Lobster in Kearney. The service was polite, cheerful, quick and helpful. The food was of the high quality I have always found at Red Lobster. I enjoyed grilled trout w/blanched/steamed broccoli, a Tomato Mozzarella Caprese salad (very good), a Fried mozzarella... More

One of the best meals we have had. Food came quickly and piping hot and was delicious. Our server was attentive and helpful. We are traveling through Kearney and stopped for dinner and we are so glad that we did.

We ordered the ultimate feast and it was indeed a feast. The lobster was much more flavorful than I'd had at a Red Lobster previously and the food overall was excellent. Avoid the wild rice if you can.

We always love going to Red Lobster simply for the food but on our last visit we had some bad service from the norm. Our drinks were never refilled and he rarely checked on us. It was very strange for a Red Lobster and maybe it was between shifts or something but it was not the normal from what we... More

I visited the property with two of my co-workers upon the recommendation of our hotel. This was a very nice location and menu. The shrimp was very tasty and the service was good.

Red Lobster is Red Lobster.. If you love sea food this is definatley the place for you.. We usually eat there when the chance arises as we don't have one in our home town.. I have yet to be disappointed and of course the cheddar biscuits are GREAT
