Diner Reviews
  • "Thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience at Judson's. Food and service was top-notch. Best prime rib I've ever tasted. Pleasant atmosphere, multiple bars in same building for a one-stop entertainment experience."

  • "We take our clients here. They/we love it. Try the French onion soup."

  • "We hadn't dined at Judson's in perhaps a year or so and decided to make it the venue for our anniversary celebration. The service was attentive, not rushed, and the various bits of the meal left us in amazement. The French onion soup was a good recipe (too many chefs are heavy-handed with rosemary, but not this one) and the salad with avocado and rhubarb vinaigrette was inspirational. I ordered the tenderloin au poivre (tenderloin filets beg for added flavor) and was rewarded. The filet itself was almost freakishly tender. The Brussels sprouts were roasted and caramelized. It was exciting to find Brazin zinfandel on the menu. We finished with creme brulee that rivaled our own. We absolutely will return for dinner."

  • "Absolutly the best restaurant in Grand Rapids!!! The food was awesome.. Tim was our waiter and he was first class all the way. I was over impressed by Tim in how awesome he was!!! Best king crab legs I've ever had and my wife's Filet Mignon was to die for! Everything perfectly cooked:-) "

  • "Missed my original reservation, so I called and was easilt accommodated. When I arrived, the doormen at the BOB were cheesy, toolish, and uneducated. After getting through the joke of security, I walked into Judsons and felt like it was going to be a good night. We began with the collosal shrimps and Avion margaritas. While the shrimps were huge and filling, I was disappointed to find that were poorly deveined, a huge must if im eating shrimp, especially at one of the finest steakhouses in the downtown GR area. Me and my fiancé had the 8 oz filet and the pork chops. The steak was ordered medium well and was grilled to perfection. The chocolate cake is a must for dessert, trust me..it will be enough to share. Great eats n drinks-$130. "

  • "This was our yearly evening out with old friends. The evening was great and our food was delicious."
    Dined on 4/24/2014
  • "The food was great, and the server was attentive, knowledgeable, and engaging. The problem was that the entrée took an exceptionally long time to arrive. This would not have been much of a concern except that we were on a time schedule. As it turns out my meal was absconded by the bar tender for one of his customers (no explanation was offered as to why or how this happened). Consequently, all of the meals were re-prepared so that they were fresh. The meals arrived about 15 min. before we wanted to leave. I will add that we have eaten at Judson's many times and this is the only bad experience we have had."

  • "We are big steak and wine fans and Judsons didn't disappoint. First and foremost, Nathaniel was our server, his recrecommendations and professionalism was the catalyst to our great dining experience. The Wagyu beef was amazing to! We will definitely be back! "

  • "Tim was an exceptional server! My date had the bacon wrapped filet stuffed with Boursin cheese. She gave me a bite and I could have died on the spot. I ordered the sirloin - Oscar style with a half lobster tail. One of the best sirloins I've ever had. Cooked to perfection. Amazingly seasoned. I cannot complain one bit!"

  • "We can't wait to find ourselves back in Grand Rapids again so that we can enjoy the restaurant again. Even the kids were impressed with the food. Except the kids Mac & cheese is too fancy for kids theses days. I thought it was good. Our waitress accommodated are lucky eater with more veggies."

  • "Our waiter was one of the best servers I've had anywhere, made the experience that much better. I thought the food was good but a bit pricey for what you get. Definitely worth another visit to try other items."
    Dined on 3/28/2014
  • "Although the food was good, the service was very slow and 2/4 steaks were cooked wrong so were sent back. The other 2 were almost done with their steaks when we finally received ours. Scalloped potatoes were amazing, asparagus lacked some flavor, salad was good, steak was delicious. The men said the beers were good!"

  • "I have been to Judson's three times. The service is very good, the family style sides are a nice option, and the steaks are super premium quality. I would likely good more often, if it wasn't so pricey. You can get the "bargain" steak and share sides to make it more reasonable, but this is not the place to be on a budget nonetheless. The wine list is big. The servers have always been extremely knowledgeable and eager to share their thoughts on the menu."

  • "First time at Judson's was a wonderful experience! Our waiter was excellent! Offered suggestions off the menu and stopped back to check on us numerous times. Very attentive to our needs. The food was delicious and nice size portions. I would definitely go back and recommend this restaurant!"
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "My favorite steakhouse in town! Smoked filet is incredible, and the bacon wrapped scallops are not to be missed. Great wine list, and a very knowledgable staff. I always bring customers to Judson's, and they are always impressed. The only downside... Nothing chases a great steak like a tawny port and a cigar. If the BOB had a cigar lounge, there would be no need for The Chop House - La Dolce Vita."

  • "Thought we'd be going in for a sizzler, and found dry aged and wagyu beef on the menu. A great steak house alternative to Ruth Chris! We will certainly return to Judson's."

The food was delicious! I would definitely come back as well as recommend it to anyone who wants a romantic night out."

  • "My boyfriend and i went here to celebrate valentines day. I ordered the 14oz New York Strip with the mushroom sauce and it was to die for! We got the smashed potatoes and asparagus to share and it was perfect! Even though it wasn't busy in the restaurant, It took quite awhile to get our food. Probably about 45 minutes, at least they had a bread bowl so we weren't starving by the time we got our food. The food was excellent though!!"

  • "This place was amazing. It was my husband's birthday and this was a great restaurant in everyway. Impeccable service, insanely phenomenal food, and an urban loft romantic ambience. I have been to highend steakhouse all over the US in my business travels and this is one of the top three for the quality of the food and service. The ambience is not as high society but I actually prefer that you can relax and eat amazing food. The service was excellent our waiter was attentive and knowledgable. He understood that we wanted a quiet romantic dinner and made sure we had everything we needed without being intrusive. We will be going back as soon as I can find another excuse to go there."

  • "We love the food, but we were seated next to a large group, which dominated the entire room, and could hardly hear each other across a small table. The server at times couldn't even hear what we were saying to him. Especially for how much we were paying, this was intolerable. I will probably recommend this place to others but with a very strong warning about the noise and how this was handled."
