My husband had the new York strip and he said it was delicious. The atmosphere was good and our food was great. However the server we had didn't seem interested to serve. I had to ask for water refills both times and he didn't tell us about the evening special. He didn't check on us often and the restaurant was... More

Never would have expected such a top quality restaurant in a Holiday Inn? But, the menu is creative but based on American favorites, well prepared and ample portions. One of the best meals in recent memory.

My parents, children, grandchildren and myself were staying at the Holiday Inn. After letting the kids swim we decided to grab a bite to eat. No one really wanted to drive so we thought we would try Sozo. The menu does not have a lot of choices on it. I decided to go with the 50/50 burger and a side... More

My husband & I had date night dinner here. We thought it was a nice restaurant. It has a great romantic feel if that is what you are looking for. They also have booths that can be curtained off for quiet or privacy. We would eat here again and recommend.

Terrible service. Rude waitstaff. I returned a drink that tasted like it had been laced with garlic. They never offered to replace or remake. And acted like I was trying to rip them off of a lousy drink. Give me a break. Very disrespectful.

We had both the land and sea options with the wine pairing and it was delicious! Our waiter timed our food perfectly, the food was cooked perfectly,... More

My wife and I often travel through Nebraska and always stop in Kearney as it's the "half way" point. We have recently discovered Sozo and it is superb! The staff is a delight and they show you their feature of the evening, and desserts, on an iPad - super cool! It really makes the menu come to life! The night... More

We had wonderful service. Checked back with us several times. Our food was great. My husband had the New York strip and it was cooked perfectly as well as seasoned well. My house wine was also very very good. No complaints.
