    We enjoyed having a round table for 8 - we could all converse seeing each other while talking. The food was delicious and the service was great. The menu had a good variety for all tastes as well as a gluten free menu.

    Service was very good although it did take some time to get my desert but it was getting busier at that time. Steak and Salmon were very good and the rolls with the honey butter were fantastic. A very nice place to go on a date or special occasion. They take very good care of their customers

    Given that there was a wedding reception in another part of the hotel, the restaurant was not at all crowded when we arrived for our reservation at 1PM on a Saturday, it took two and a half hours before we could pay our check and leave. Our server was rushing but, sadly, the restaurant was understaffed. It was an hour and a half before we were served. We had some leftovers that we wanted boxed and that took over a half hour. We were offered a birthday dessert when we ordered our entrees as we had two celebrants in our small group, but we were unable to have them because the lunch just ran too long. We are relatively frequent diners at Rudy's and this was our worst experience there.

    We went there for our anniversary and my wife took the sirloin and I got the blacken tuna. The Tuna spices were off and it just didn't taste right. I lived all over east coast including the Virgin Islands and the taste of the dish was off. The Sirloin was so tenderized that it had a texture of patte and had a sweet taste of honey. Steaks shouldn't be sweet. Service was good. On a good note the carrot cake was very good. Would I go here again, No. If they offered a discount, No. I might go on the roof for a beer or glass of wine that would be it. Sorry for the review but I thought it would be special and it wasn't it for the price I paid.

    Have been wanting to try Rudy's for quite some time - finally made it there last week-end to celebrate a special occasion. Great evening to dine outdoors, Both our waitress and the manager on duty were extremely helpful and accommodating (e.g offered to add extra lighting to our table umbrella etc. once it got dark.) Very nice, pleasant evening with very good food. My only "complaint" was noise level. I didn't realize there was a bar up on the rooftop - unfortunately, that meant sitting in very close proximity to a few folks sitting at the bar who became increasingly loud and obnoxious as the evening wore on.

    I have only been here once, so it is hard to judge based on one visit. The onion rings were phenomenal! I had a basic salad to go with it, which was just okay. Lettuce was brown and old. Kind of sad, especially for the price........$6 for a plate of brown lettuce? I think if you improved your produce, people would be much likely to come back. My sisters seemed happy with their food.

    After sitting for some time, we had to go to the host stand and ask them to get is a waiter. After finally getting us drinks, and taking our order, one of got a steak instead of the prime rib that was ordered. When told of the error, the waitress gave a halfhearted apology, and kind of giggled. Not acceptable,

    Took my wife here for our anniversary. This spot was recommended by many friends and family. Food was really just not good. Steak was a boring steak cooked properly but seasoned poorly. Chicken was dry as can be. Considering the $100+ price tag for my wife and I after tip. Service was the only reason I did not complain while there. Waiter was very attentive and knowledgeable. I would not recommend this restaurant. I know we will not be returning.

    We have been big fans of Rudy's for several years, however our recent visit was not up to past visits. Walleye is always good there and it was this time as well. However the prime rib served to my son was overcooked and not at all. I had ordered the twin medallions, diane and was quite disappointed in a request for medium done and getting rare, not tender medallions. We usually always like the green beans however this trip they were not up to par. We will try again but at a later date than normal..... You have given us reason to hunt for a new one of our favorites.

    Rudy's has excellent food and great ambiance. My husband and I wanted to dine on the rooftop terrace but the wait was over an hour - which is no surprise because it's absolutely lovely up there. Our dinner on this evening was delicious and the service was excellent. We'll definitely be back again - and hopefully on the rooftop next time!

    They could have provided a vegetarian salad selection. My husband said if he were to return again to Rudy's he would not order the Scampi again. Waitress was helpful with accomadating my food preferences but when my salad arrived with a dressing of their choice put on my salad. I did not want that type of dressing. I should of said something to the waitress but I didn't.

    We went to this restaurant because it was highly rated for a special occasion. The steak and fish were good. The vegetables were overcooked and coated in butter. The desserts were delicious and huge (especially cakes--enough for 4 people to share). It was really nice to have a complimentary cheese cake for the birthday person. Good value for what you pay.

    While missing the standard starting salad a bit, we were so happy with the food---the consistently great pan-fried walleye almondine and the huge shrimp in the wonderful coconut shrimp. The Rudytini with an abundance of raspberries and shaker left for generously "topping it off"! The food was great and the service was fine.
