  • "I hadn't been to Rudy's in years, and was pleasantly surprised that it hasn't changed as far as quality and value of food. The meals are very large, of great taste, and cooked to perfection. A great place for both casual and fancy dining!"

  • "Our experience was perfect except for our lobster tails being kinda tough. The first bite was like chewing rubber bands. The texture was better in some spots, but most of it was tough...didn't complain though, since the rest of the meal was really good. Our server was efficient, well-versed and engaging. Good chowder, good salad, good potatoes, and the garlic cheese bread was sublime. There was also a delicious dessert, chocolaty and light, which we shared. We'd go back, but would hope for tender sweet lobster. Nice prices too. Thanks Rudy's!"

  • "The crab cakes were just OK but trhe lobster potstickers were very good and the lobetsr ravioli was fabulous! Bring a hearty appetite because there is almost too much food if you have both an appetizer and an entree."

  • "Don't pass this place up - great service, food, and ambience. For a place that specializes in seafood, they have great prime rib! We'll be back!"

  • "We always enjoy dining at Rudy's. Everything was wonderful except that we came on a very hot day and the room we were seated in was not air conditioned very well. We were given a fan to help cool us down. If it weren't for the fan, we would have roasted. But the food was wonderful and the service was outstanding. We will definitely be returning."

  • "I have had dinners only but have been to Rudy's many times over the past 20 years and have never been disappointed. The food and server were outstanding on the 31st. I would and have recommend Rudy's to my friends and relatives. I usually do dinner there so I not sure what lunch is like but I can imagine that it is just as fine."

  • "We really enjoyed the food but were very disappointed in the service. We had reservations and planned to have a nice dinner with drinks, appetizers. Our waitress, came to our table and we felt like we were in Denny's. We were not asked about drinks and appetizers. She rushed us and we felt cheated. We were out of there in less than an hour. Our bill was nearly $200 but it could have been a lot more if we had been given the opportunity to order more drinks and appetizers. We had reservations and the restaurant was not full so we were not sure why we were rushed. The food was delicious by the way and we plan to come back and home not to be rushed next time."

  • "I have been wanting to try out Rudy's ever since I moved back here to the Sacramento area a few years ago. Our visit was totally unplanned and a spur of the moment decision as the idea of your Thursday lobster special was mentioned by one of my friends. The food was terrific and the service was incredible! I can't say enough about what a great time we had and how impressed we are with Rudy's Hideway! See you again soon!"
    Dined on 7/24/2014
  • "Rudy's does not look like much from the outside, but the inside was GREAT! Nice, comfortable, good service and good food. Our group of 8 met for lunch and everyone was happy with their meal. We loved this place and plan to go back some time very soon."

  • "Nice high end menu w surf & turf Crowd was very local and very senior - I think I was the youngest patron in the restaurant by a full generation. Portions were appropriately small (I don't like stuffing myself)."

  • "The service was excellent. Waitress always smiling. Nice place for leisure eating. Air conditioning blowing on us, waitress helped move us to a more suitable table Seemed delighted to make us comfortable. Good excellent. Meat and veggies cooked perfect."

  • "We were a group of four. I had the lobster tail and baked potato. It was very good. The other three ordered the prime rib. All were very happy with it, and after a taste I agreed. Very flavorful. We will visit again soon."
    Dined on 7/20/2014
  • "My son had the NY Steak which was flavorless and over cooked. The Filet Mignon was good however whatever fish was on top was horrible. The hamburger was good however the bun was way too big for the burger. We had asked the waiter if the restaurant had a signature drink and he stated no...really?? The waiter must have been new as he was just so so. When you are paying $30.00 a plate per meal you want exceptional service."

  • "LOVE the artwork - many Tomas pieces, beautiful! Svc quick & friendly. Waiter at table within 2 mins of sitting down, soup immed after we ordered. Bit of a wait for entrees, was a Fri night & busy. Only neg cmt - he walked by table with hubby's empty glass on corner 3 or 4 times, didn't offer fresh drinks until he brought entrees. Food exactly as expected. We both had rib eye dinner with clam chowder to start. Chowder was delish - thick & tasty with bacon mixed in, plenty of potatoes & claims. Lobster was fine, cooked right. Steak was tender and cooked as I ordered it - medium rare. Garlic mashed potatoes were divine. Good wine list, nice choice of varietals and price points We'll definitely be back, maybe for a birthday dinner."

  • "What a great restaurant! We've been coming to Rudy's for many years and it has remained the same great place. Service is great! Food is excellent! We ALWAYS have lobster...tender and delicious. We've started using "Open Table" for reservations and that has worked out perfect!"

  • "Went here for a special occassion. First time trying it. Looked a bit dated on the outside, but much nicer inside. Then, shocked at how delicious the food was. server was awesome, presentation as expected, and taste was great. Will definitely come back time and again. Already have plans to bring family back to show them. Then, asking around, turns out several friends have gone in the past. Was a good reminder for them. Too bad its not closer to us, we would go more often...."

  • "We took my son and his girlfriend out here while visiting from out of town. The waitress seemed very impatient and when she filled your water each time she would say "thank you" before you even had time to open your mouth. She was not the worst part - the food was AWFUL! My husband and I ordered the seafood platter and I kid you not frozen fish sticks would have been better! The entire plate consisted of heavily battered and greasy fried shrimp, cod, scallops, and popcorn shrimp. I got mashed potatoes which were COLD and tasteless and my husband got a baked potato that was also cold. It was late and had been driving all day and did not feel complaining would help the situation so we enjoyed the company and WILL NEVER go back!"

  • "We've eaten at Rudy's many times in the last and every time it didn't disappoint. The service is top notch and the food is delicious there is a limited menu but sure to please each diner with a delightful appetizer, entree and dessert. The cocktail was outstanding, made to my exact specifications."
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "We'd never eaten at Rudy's, but I knew Jim loved lobster and I'd heard Rudy's radio commercials for a long time. We got to the restaurant, we were greeted warmly and seated immediately. The menu was great, as were the prices. We enjoyed our meal - I had the deep friend prawns, one of my favorite meals, and they were done perfectly. Jim loved his lobster tail with all the fixings. The price was more than reasonable. The food really was delicious. Thanks for a great experience, we will come again."

  • "Many good food options, wonderful service and the prices were great. We celebrated two birthdays there on Saturday afternoon and everyone had an excellent time. Would encourage our friends to try Rudy's!!!"

  • "This was only our 2nd time going to Rudy's, and it was as special as the 1st time. We wanted to go somewhere special for our 31st anniversary, and Rudy's was our choice. Having the menu available online helped giving us an idea what we were going to have beforehand - it was fun sitting on our deck in Camino the Sunday before our reservation going over it. When we recommend Rudy's to others, we always mention to "check out their website". The food and service was excellent, and our server, Jason, never made us feel rushed. The atmosphere was quiet for the most part and relaxing. We are planning our next visit for my wife's birthday in a few weeks, it's worth the drive! The big decision will be seafood versus steak or chicken ;-)"

  • "Just spend my birthday on 6/17 with husband and family, good time. My husband and I always get the 20 oz Lobster, clam chowder and salad, as ususaly great meal. Would recommend to those that have not tried Rudy's Hide Away a try, especially the Lobster."
    Dined on 6/17/2014
  • "This was my first time at Rudy's. The service was good and the food was okay. My husbands prime rib was dry and tough, he sent it back and the second piece was much better. I had the Cioppinno, I prefer that the crab and lobster to be already cracked, it's a mess cracking it with all the sauce they give you. However it was very good."

  • "Other person complained re salad being limpy. My chowder was fine. Perhaps due top Father's day they were short handed. Main courses were satisfactory. Drinks quite large."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "The food and drinks were delicious, my husband was very satisfied and the meat was cooked as requested. We are very satisfied and can't wait to eat there again. The special menu was great for getting out dinners on a holiday, good choice."
