  • "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."

  • "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!"

  • "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."

  • "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!"

  • "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."

  • "My husband and I came here to celebrate our first Valentine's Day as a married couple, and we loved it! Our waiter was great, and he even gave us a whole wine bottle on the house. The food was delicious! I would definitely come back as well as recommend it to anyone who wants a romantic night out."

  • "We went for dinner and had excellent service and food. The waitress was knowledgeable and very pleasant. The food arrived in a timely manner and was prepared as requested. Some of the prices are on the high side so we only go to this location for special occasions."

  • "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."

  • "My boyfriend and I went here for our 1 year anniversary. We were not disappointed! I ordered the stuffed filet, he ordered the NY Strip-both cooked med-rare. We shared the smashed potatoes and asparagus. The meat was melt-in-your-mouth! The stuffed filet had a perfect flavor due to the bacon and boursin cheese-I was hesitant that the bacon flavor would overrun the steak, but they complimented each other incredibly well and not one flavor stood out. The smashed potatoes were incredibly smooth, the asparagus was perfectly green, and my boyfriend finished his whole steak in record time. Definitely worth spending a bit more."

  • "We had our semiannual dinner between Christmas and New Years at Judsons, our favorite Grand Rapids restaurant. Service and food was superb with the noise level from the kitchen where we were located was disappointing. Waiter was top notch."

  • "We had a great experience at Judsons (J Bar) as we always do! It's our favorite place to get steak in GR, I personally prefer it Ruth's Chris. The steak was awesome, we had the Waygu special and was outstanding. Would definitely recommend to others!"

  • "Large party dominated the room and raised the noise level too much. Waited too long for server to arrive after hostess failed to tell the server of our arrival. Total time 2 hours for simple meal."

  • "Great food and a very nice feel inside the restaurant. Get the stuffed filet and you wont be disappointed!"

  • "I'd heard a lot of positive reviews about the BOB from friends, so it seemed like a good choice for my fiance and my anniversary dinner. We were significantly underwhelmed though. I ordered the "Free Bird" chicken, and found it to be tough, dry, and overcooked. The vegetables it was served with were wonderful as were the scalloped potatoes, clearly high quality cheese here, but overall, I was unimpressed with the meal. My fiance ordered the dry aged rib eye, and remarked that although it was a high quality piece of meat, it lacked flavor and was disappointing for the price. It's a gorgeous building and an interesting atmosphere, but I don't know that we'd try it again."

  • "My wife and I had a great time there with excellent food. The best dish by far though was the appetizer we had which was bacon wrapped scallops. They were cooked perfectly. Bacon was crisp. Scallops were melt in your mouth tender. They were sitting in a blue cheese fondue with balsamic onions on top and it was just amazing. Expensive...extremely expensive. But I would still highly recommend."
