The Cellar is an appropriate name for this establishment; it has a basement feel. The wait was 20 minutes which isn't a long time to wait. The table we were seated at had been for a larger group prior and the table was not separated...More

We are regular diners at The Cellar. Come a lot for the prime rib and comfort foods that you can't find anywhere else. Lately, like in the last year, things have gone downhill. The service isn't very attentive; drinks aren't refilled, tables aren't checked on...More

This was recommended by a couple locals & was very good place to eat. We really enjoyed onion rings recommended & had very good meals of Nebraska meat entrees. The staff was really friendly & did a great job.

The onion rings here are amazing! Many of us commented that we could have just ordered those for lunch - they have to be homemade! The service was marginal but our server was very sweet.

Fair prices for good food. $10 to 20 meal prices. We came in late and found this to be a nice selection with good flavor. I had the onion rings and they were great. The menu has the normal home town favorites, but there were...More

For those that avoid the predictable mediocrity of chain restaurants that are abundant in Kearney, NE, I recommend the Cellar restaurant. First, it is literally in the basement (cellar). It has been open since 1978, a feat that not many restaurants can claim. We arrived...More
