The service and food always make an excellent place to stop as we travel across the state. Usually the waitstaff are college students and their friendliness makes the visit even better. We love the seafood tacos-a new favorite here.

I think our issue was our waitress, although friendly, had to be reminded of things we asked for. Also, asked for my ranch dressing on the side, she did just that, globbed it on one side of the bowl in lieu of in a small dish. Had to be reminded that melted butter came with crab, no refill asked on... More

I like eating here. They feature "Crab Fest", "Shrimp Fest" and "Lobster Fest" where they have several dishes for each food they are featuring. They also have a great menu for all seafood.

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.
