Great place! Fast, friendly service. Food was amazing. Got my seafood fix in and should be okay for awhile. Shout out to the server Daniel for doing a great job taking care of me.

Dinner at the Kearney, NB Red Lobster was as expected for a chain restaurant. I was greeted by friendly staff and quickly taken to a table. The wait staff was pleasant and very attentive. My food selection was from their "pick two" selections. I chose crab stuffed flounder and scallops and a green salad. The food was well prepared and... More

We missed the noon rush and arrived about 1:30. Our food arrived quickly, and was the usual RL flavor and quality. Our server, however, seemed much more intent on accomplishing other tasks instead of checking back with us to see if we required more to drink, additional biscuits, or even dessert.

Excellent service, good food and great atmosphere. The staff will bend over backwards to make sure you get exactly what you ordered. Great place for a birthday celebration, anniversary or any special occasion. Worried about cost? Very reasonable lunch selections, or order an appetizer for your meal! I love their lobster and langostino pizza. There is something for everyone at... More

If you like fish, this is a really good place to eat when driving through Nebraska. The food was very good. Even though they were very busy when I went, I did not have to wait for my food for very long. The waitress was extremely helpful and friendly, as were other members of the staff. For people planning to... More

The biscuits are great and the staff was friendly. A little pricey for the portion sizes; but, it is a chain so there you go.

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
