Diner Reviews
  • "The 16oz. Prime rib was sensational. Great flavor was delivered and the sides were exceptional as well. Also, the 16oz Steak was delicious. ..snuck a bite off my wife's plate. Overall, food was top notch and the service was on their game."

  • "The food here was very good! I went for a birthday dinner and was not disappointed! Everyone's meal was great and no one left hungry! The Siroin and Alaskan Halibut were delicious and cooked to perfection!"

  • "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."

  • "I've been to Rudy's several times and it seems like the food is hit or miss; never consistent. If the food was consistent, I'd eat there for more than just a business dinner or after work drinks."

  • "This is my wife's favorite spot in the Twin Cities. I am a HUGE foodie...she simply is not. Not too many places we can go together (esp. for special occasions) and really enjoy ourselves. This it it, however. Amazing food. Amazing service. We will be back as often as I can drive to White Bear."

  • "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."

  • "For a Monday night the restaurant was extremely busy and very loud. Lots of large parties which seemed to keep the wait staff under a considerable amount of stress in order to provide even reasonable service."

  • "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. "

  • "What a charming restaurant setting offering comfortable booths/tables inside and a great outdoor deck for dining. We ordered the prime rib which was served to our medium rare order and the baked potatoes were perfectly baked and served with toppings on the side.The wedge of ice berg lettuce was fresh and served with two strips of bacon and big chunks of blue cheese. Our server was excellent often checking with us. We were impressed with the entire restaurant and will return."

  • "We love Rudy's and were looking forward to the Easter buffet. We had 10:00 reservations and honest to goodness, the food was actually cool by the time we got back to our seats with it. I said, "Oh, the cod is good but they serve it cold", thinking you did it on purpose (like Tinucci's does). As the morning went on, things got better but of course by then we were getting full. Otherwise it was very good and well-run. There was enough staff on hand. But for that kind of money, it was very disappointing to have a cold plate of food first thing - I was wishing someone could have just thrown the entire plate in the microwave for about 45 seconds."

  • "At 5:30 we decided to go out to eat. I Goggled Rudy's and they use Open Table Reservation. They had an opening for 6:45, we were seated as soon as we got there. We were at a table and as I returned from the restroom a booth had opened, so I inquired about changing to the booth and it was no problem. We ordered the Scallops with sun dried tomato pesto for Apps - It was amazing!! For the entree we had the Cajun Combo $34.00, Two - 4oz. Blackened Medallion with 3 New Orleans Style Sauteed Shrimp the side was a Five Cheese Penne. The meal was fantastic!! We go out a lot for steaks and these were over the top!! Perfect for two to split!! Kiwi Martini for dessert :) I definitely recommend this restaurant - we will be going back!!!"

  • "6 of us (2 seniors and 4 mature adults) celebrated a birthday at Rudy's. We were happy with the extensive menu choices both from the variety and price range. The server was friendly and easily answered our menu questions. We chose fish, pasta, steak and salad and were pleased with the results and the service. The day before my daughter checked with Rudy's to see if she could bring a birthday cake to the restaurant and was told if it came from a bakery it would be OK. Our server offered to bring plates and forks but my daughter had packed paper plates and plastic forks. When I took photos the server offered to take pictures for us. I gladly handed her the camera and she even knew how to adjust the flash ! Excellent service."

  • "We love Rudy's, and went there for my wife's birthday. Sat at the bar while waiting for the table and the bartender was awesome and the drinks were very tasty, including the "Rudytini" my wife got, her favorite! Unfortunately after we got to the table the waiter we had just wasn't up to par with every other time we visited. He was not around very much, forgot our appetizer order (which we cancelled), and after dinner a whole different person brought our check and ran my card, I have no idea where our guy was. This is a first as all other times (and we go there often) the service has been superb. And for anyone reading I would not let this change your mind, this is the exception rather than the rule."

  • "My husband and I were trying to find a nice place to go on a dinner date. We had heard of Rudy's, but never been. We looked at the menu online and it fit what we were looking for. We arrived early to have a drink at the bar. Both if us chose the Happy Hour house wine. It was the largest wine pour I've ever had at a restaurant! We then inquired about the Martini's that we saw. It was the Rubytini and it was delicious! I will go back just for that! Not too sound like a lush. My husband and both had dinner there as well. Our steak was cooked perfectly! We will be back!"

  • "Every aspect of our evening was excellent except that point when we approached the front desk. The person greeted us and asked if she could help us. I replied yes and gave her my name and reservation time. She looked and touched her monitor and without saying a word turned walked into a side room and did not return. About 2 minutes later another person went in same room and came out and showed us to our table. We found this to be very strange and somewhat rude behavior. I must say this action created genuine concern on our part as to how the rest of our evening would progress. Happily it all turned out great. Good food, good service, good friends. Kind of would like an explanation for strange behavior."

  • "We decided to celebrate a combination birthday event (mine 3/9 and my daughters 3/16). We really enjoyed the ambiance and the food was amazing. Our server was very friendly and attentive. The only problem I had with the whole experience was the server seemed anxious causing our food to come too soon. We like to visit and have an appetizer. The salads were delivered and the main meal came before we could finish the salads. Not a big deal. I was a server and my youngest daughter works at Outback, so we understand the dining experience. The dining experience was wonderful, and I would recommend you to anyone. One more comment: was very excited to hear that our family business rebuilt the spa :)."

  • "Back to Rudy's! group of 5 this time. Second time where one person in our party did not get their meal. Once everyone else done eating, the meal finally arrived. Manager said to enjoy! And that he would be back to "make a deal".. Really? Great to have Rudy's in the neighborhood! but the service and kitchen reall must step it up. I do not want a "free" dessert to compensate."
