  • "Great overall experience! Our waitress Amy B was outstanding! Would recommend to everybody!"
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "Good restaurant for a special occasion. Quiet enough so our table of 6 could hear each other. Rib eye was good, but the prime rib was a bit tough. Service was excellent and well timed."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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!"

  • "Friendly Atmosphere, staff very attentive. The food is always excellent . For being located on a highway the roof top is in the top 10. Would be in the top 5 if you didn't have to share one bathroom."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "Good food but meno needs to be updated and chaned around. Same old foods, nothing fun or different. Although they do have a nice selection of salads."
    Dined on 3/12/2014
  • "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 :)."
    Dined on 3/9/2014
  • "The restaurant was very busy but the service was very good. The food, however, was just average. The green beans had little flavor - I think they missed the teriyaki sauce? My boyfriend's steak had gristle and a lot of fat with not much flavor. He also ordered sweet potato hash browns that were so greasy, he couldn't eat them. My son's ribs were fatty, greasy and definitely were sitting around too long. Not what I remembered this restaurant to be and was disappointed in the food."
    Dined on 3/7/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 3/7/2014
  • "Food is consistently good. SO always has Fish and Chips, always raves how good and it is. I tend to try different items, as long as the Sweet Potato hash browns are part of the meal. Best hash browns there are. Steaks are generally very good. NY Strip last evening was excellent. Service can be a bit of challenge but is tolerable."

  • "Jeff, restaurant and lounge manager, helped me make this a memorable weekend for my sweetheart and me. The bartenders provide a good pour and the meal at Rudy's is excellent. This will be a repeat performance for us in the near future. Highly recommended."
    Dined on 2/21/2014
  • "Rudy's food and service is reliable. We come here frequently for special familiy gatherings and we're never disappointed. Don't ever make the BLT salad go away."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "We really enjoy the food here and the service has been excellent as well. It was crowded the evening we dined, so the noise level was pretty high and it was difficult to find a parking spot. Those were minor negative marks because the food was just delicious! Also, we were late for our reservation because we got rear-ended on the way to dinner, and our server was very sympathetic and didn't rush us at all. I recommend Rudy's."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Had a great experience at Rudy's. Our 7:30p reservation was honored around 7:40, not bad for on Valentine's Day. Unfortunately we had to sit by the hotel's pool, which was being used by a family with multiple young children so it was a little noisy, but overall, not bad. Dinner was served quickly and our waitress was very attentive. Overall, a great experience!"
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "New to area, Rudys came recommended by good friend. Booked Rudy's for Valentines Saturday on open table (great res feature). Reservations for 7:30...didn't get seated until after 8...in the bar! since when do reservations get placed in bar? Really disappointed of poor planning on Rudy's part. Take better care of reservations. Got feeling they were taking too many walk ins. Also, not a lot of romance when the hockey game is on. Steak medallions were good but overshadowed by poor planning on management of busy crowd. I'd go to Rudy's again for a casual evening. Never again for a special night."

  • "I like the overall feel of Rudy's Redeye Grill. Food is always delicious and the wait staff is very friendly and detail oriented. We go often and have always been happy!!"
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "We always enjoy going to Rudy's. We prefer to sit in the bar area for the atmosphere but we went on Valentine's Day so it was busy. They sat us by the door this time where it was cold so the atmosphere was not great but the food was good and of course the company was great! I would recommend Rudy's!"
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "I took my wife to RRG for Valentine's Day. Everything was excellent except for my steak was over cooked and burnt. I think it was due to the fact that the restaurant was very busy. I have had good service and excellent food in the past and will be returning."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Fun atmosphere with great food especially the appetizers - especially the bull bites! Love the tap beer varieties - Stella is a winner. Not so crazy about the booths - too crowded with coats and couldn't find a coat check area. Service was okay and parking is always a challenge."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "It was fine. The food was good. A little pricier than I thought I would be. I thought prices would be on par with Outback, but they were about $4 higher for the prime rib and did not include a salad, which was an additional $4."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "My husband & I love this restaurant and are usually amazed by the food. However, we were disappointed on Valentines Day. We both chose our entrees from the Special Valentines Menu. Our waitress did not discuss, explain, or suggest anything. It was a VERY busy dining night and we watched the quick turnover of patrons. We had a late reservation, so thought we could take our time. It was a fight to do so. I had the seafood pasta dish and my husband had the steak "with snowcrab", neither were as described on the Valentines Menu. The food just did not taste right. It was as if the chefs were trying too hard. Normally they do a beautiful job and the food is delicious. Next year, please stick to the basics."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Booked Rudy's about two weeks before Valentines Day. Arrived on time, but told that the wait would be 25 minutes. But then we were seated within a few minutes at poolside, which was great. Not nearly as noisy around the pool and nobody was doing canon balls. Service was very good even with the large Valentines Day crowd. Food was excellent. Wine by the glass was generous serving size and good price. Manager did stop by our table to make sure everything was good."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Rudy's Redeye Grill is our "Special Occasion" spot for dining. You can't find more helpful, knowledgeable and friendly wait staff and the ambience is enticing. There is a decent amount of room between tables so you don't have to listen to other patron's conversations, there are no "rocky" tables or chairs, the music level is perfect - as is the jazz they play. No meal has ever been questionable or disappointing - just delicious! We drive 40 miles to enjoy this little slice of heaven."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "This restaurant continues to be one of our all time favorites. Service is good; food is good; drinks are good. It's all good! Even though they took my favorite drink off the menu, the manager was kind enough to give me the recipe and they will make it for me whenever I dine there. It's nice to go to a place where you are confident that you will be getting a good meal at a good price and will have a good time."
    Dined on 2/13/2014
  • "It was Valentines night and even with every seat in the house taken, the bar tenders were friendly and made great drinks. Our server was particularly good. I think that they are careful in their hiring and training and it shows."

  • "Our reservations were for 8:00 and we were seated at 8:05. It was a full house and we were still seated on time. We Like that, we like that very much!"

  • "We made a reservation for 6:30 PM. When we arrived the restaurant & bar were packed with people standing at the door. There was limited space to wait for this large a crowd. Our name was called and we proceeded to walk through the bar, dining room, past the pool area (this is in a hotel with a pool and they have tables with a pool view) and down into a banquet room that had been set up especially for Valentine's Day. It was very nice, quiet and the service was excellent. The food was very good. We would go back....maybe try to sit in the dining room next time. Not sure how many guests they had that night but it had to be an outstanding evening!"
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "on Valentine's Day. We came early because we expected a large crowd - and there was one by the time that we left. Wait staff seemed a bit stretched (and the kitchen must have been too), but food was great and our needs were met with only small delays. We love lunches at Rudy's - portion size is perfect for seniors eating a main meal."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "I absolutely loved my meal. No complaints at all on the food. My husband had salmon and said it was the best he has ever had. The only thing I was bummed out about was where we were seated. It was Valentines day so they were very busy! And we were put into a side room. It was very quiet and a little awkward since I could hear most of the other peoples conversations. But I was very pleased that we were seated right away and the services was still very good! I have already recommended the restaurant to many!!"

  • "I was very excited to try this resturant after reading the reviews. It was a Special Occassion with my wife and we were disappointed. It was not busy for a dinner -Hostess was detached and annoyed by our arrival. Dropped the menus on the table and said "enjoy" about 10 ft away from the table. -Server was right on top of us while we were taking our coats off asking if we had any questions. -After the pouncing fo the server, she waited 10 minutes to see if we had questions. Asked a question and it was another 15 minutes. Didn't order until 25 minutes after being seated. -Bread was not brought until we ordered -Food was ave at best: Prime Rib & NY Strip -Server asked my wife and I (sat next to each other) if we wanted seperate checks."

  • "We have been to Rudy's often but our favorite time to gather with friends there is late Sunday afternoon. At that time we can take advantage of Happy Hour (although I wish the Zin of Zen were happy hour priced), get a round table since we usually have a group of 6 - 9, and the noise level is much better then on a Friday or Saturday night. We also love that we can enjoy a full meal or just get a sandwich or salad at a reasonable price, I love your sweet potato hash browns, coconut shrimp, and portabello sandwich!"
