Our go-to spot for special daysIt can be frustrating finding a good restaurant open for Christmas or one on Mother's Day that doesn't make you stand in line for a couple of hours. That's been our experience in the past.
We've solved this problem by heading to the venerable Rudy's Hideaway as we enjoy the food (it's quite expensive on Christmas and Mother's Day but the food is delicious and they package a 3-course meal with limited selections like lobster tail and king crab legs and steak - or turkey dinner on Christmas). Diners can select soup or salad and can choose baked potato, garlic mashed, rice pilaf or green beans. Dessert is something simple and light, such as chocolate-covered strawberries.
Service is quick, efficient and accommodating. We'll be back.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGREAT PLACE TO GOAm never disappointed when we go there.

But RUDY'S is one of those gems that still shines bright as an undying bastion of the "old Sacramento"! It is rich with great food and a wonderful ambiance. Couple that with a classy business attitude and expert service, quality must follow. You will walk away with good memories, anniversary or not. I remember saying to myself as we left, "Well, I got that one right!"....
It was our 41'st anniversary and we decided to try Rudy's after hearing a commercial on KFBK

The service was awesome. Everyone seemed genuinely friendly and didn't seem to be faking it. The food was outstanding. The three of us literally groaned with pleasure at the taste of the food. The crab stuffed mushrooms were an amazing appetizer. I got lobster ravioli, and it was the best! To end the night they brought me a bowl of their chocolate mousse with a candle on the house for my birthday. Best mousse I have ever had!4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was my third time toThis was my third time to this restaurant.

Bring your appetite:)3/14/2013 12:00:00 AMMy husbabd has terminal cancerMy husbabd has terminal cancer and he loves Lobster. We went to Rudy's 30 years ago when we were dating but it got sort of shabby and run down and we stopped going there. Then our neighbors told us of this great NEW place called Rudy's and so now we went back. Ron was our waiter and they accommodated the wheelchair and all of our requests. A special night to remember and we took lots of pictures of my husband enjoying a real good meal..Thank you for helping me make another good memory of my wonderful husband.3/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
