Judson’s Steakhouse at The BOB
We sat earlier than most of the ppl there yet we got our food last, sitting for nearly an hour. Scallops were pitiful, two, I got TWO scallops and they weren’t very big at all.
Service was a little slow but all food and beverages were good.
This was our first time dining at Judson’s and had a wonderful experience. The food was perfectly prepared and delicious and our waiter was exceptional! The atmosphere was lovely and topped by beautiful jazz music! It was a great evening out for a birthday celebration!
Our server Mitch was INCREDIBLE! The crabmeat over the hangry steak was not great, but overall a beautiful place.
The food was excellent!! Our waiter was the sweetest guy ever! So friendly and helpful. He knew we had tickets to see the comedy show upstairs so he took great care of us! Will definitely eat here again when in Grand Rapids.
We understand lots of places are understaffed - and we are patient- but my steak was rare when I ordered medium well. We waited quite a While for the server to come by but my husband finally had to bring my plate to the kitchen to find our server and ask for it to be cooked more.
Also his steak was tough and lacking flavor.
Sides were delicious and manager was quick to come and apologize for my undercooked meal. Gave us a big discount on my meal though we didn’t demand that.
Tasty food with an unique flavor, served by a helpful, knowledgeable long-time server. Our entrée, plus cornbread with a tinge of mild pepper was plenty for man and wife.
Took customers there. Great overall experience!
I was in town for a conference and am not a fan of the Ruth Chris’ of the world. I found this gem and have to say from start to finish this was the BEST filet mignon I have ever had hands down. Cooked to perfection with Yukon gold mashed potatoes and creamed spinach the meal was to die for. Capped it all off with delicious creme brûlée. Highly recommend this place.
Went here for my wife and I 5th year anniversary, beautiful candle lit dinner, and absolutely delicious cuts of Steak, I think I could have ate my Filet Mignon with a spoon. Service was also awesome, our server Mitch was very knowledgeable and made our first experience awesome. I would recommend this place to anybody looking for a delicious dinner or date.
The food was excellent. The service could have been better given the low volume of customers at the time. A bit pricey.
I had a great birthday!! The waitress was amazing and the food was great. Highly recommend!
We ate at Judson’s for the first time, and we couldn’t have been more pleased! Probably the best steak I’ve ever eaten. Great service, great atmosphere, and super delicious food. I would highly recommend!
I ordered the filet medium rare and it came by medium well. The mashed potatoes were bland.
We were a table of four and each of us ordered a different entree and everyone of us was very pleased with our choice. Our server,Arian, from Italy is the BEST.!
The staff if just simply amazing..
Meal was good, service was great. We would return
The bone in delmonico steak was perfect. The seafood pasta wS great. We were very impressed by the size and quality (amount of actual crab meat) in the crab cake appetizer!
The food was magnificent and the service top notch. We will definitely be back!!!
My Filet Mignon was cooked to perfection, our daughter's salmon we excellent, and the appetizers were very very good as well. We were waited on by a delightful young man who recently moved here from Italy. Overall a very good experience!
Seated right away, 30 minutes till our drink order was taken. After drinks arrived another 30 min before order was taken. Wrong dish sent out which had crab on it which my fiance is allergic to. Took them back and sent right steaks out, which I had no fork and there was no one to ask for another one. I ended up eating my steak with a knife and my fingers. Overall very poor experience would not recommend
Waiter forgot to sever wine. Other than that it was fine.
Food was good, it was nice being able to skip the line because of our reservation.
Birthday celebration- they could make our Gilmore points work? Otherwise no complaints! Nice meal, good waiter-
Elegant but casual setting. Menu offers good choices without being overwhelming. Beautifully crafted cocktails. Our steaks were prepared just as we like and the sides were ample and delicious. It had been far too long since our last visit and we were delighted to learn that our favorite server, Tim, still worked there. He looked after us very competently. Judson's is a top-notch place for a great meal.
Our server was from Italy and was amazing! Food was great as well.
I have to say I was disappointed. My husband and I were just traveling through Grand Rapids on our way to vacation. We like to set the mood for a trip with a really good first evening meal. So, several days prior to our trip I searched for a local restaurant with good reviews and made a reservation.
The service we got was pitiful when compared to the service those around us were getting from the two male severs. They were told about the tomahawk special, we were told “there are no specials I know of”. They were offered suggestions on their wine offering, we wanted 10 minutes for the glass of wine we ordered after we requested now vs with the meal. When I ask for ice for my iced tea; my tea was gone before the ice arrived. I asked for salt which came quicker than anything else, but ……….
Our reservation was for 5:30…..so they were not yet very busy. In fact when we arrived there were four tables seated and three wait staff working. So, it really appeared to be no reason for the lack luster service we received.
My husband enjoyed his salmon and the wild mushroom bruschetta was good.
I would return if I could be guaranteed to get one of the two male servers we saw working.
The service was wonderful and food excellent!
Took 20 mins to get water or a drink and everything else took literally forever to get.
Great food and great service. We had a nice meal for our anniversary.
Good food and great service nice date night
First time visiting this restaurant. We came to celebrate our daughter’s 22 birthday and we couldn’t have been more pleased! The food was outstanding! Best filet I have ever had, waitstaff was super nice and attentive. Would highly recommend Judson’s to everyone!
Tim was an amazing waiter, he has great recommendations for us. The food was wonderful as well. I recommend the charcuterie board and the filet!
Very disappointed in our dinner at Judson’s last night. We’ve been to this restaurant a handful of times and last night was the worst. After being seated, we waited over 10 minutes for anyone to walk up to our table. After placing our drinks and meal order right away we waited another 10-15 minutes prior to our drinks arriving and another 10-15 after that for the bread to arrive. Then when our food arrived, our mashed potato’s and asparagus were covered in blood from the hanger steak, even with ordering it medium.
Judson’s is also not doing the free lobster on your birthday like they previous have. For the restaurant not being busy, I was disappointed with the lack of effort, time and taste. We will not be going back.
We went to celebrate my wife's Birthday. After an hour we had 2 drinks some
garlic bread and still no food. I'm not a snooty patron I understand things happen
but that was poor service and will not be back. Paid our bill and left. So my wife ended up with taco bell for her b-day dinner. Needless to say but it was not a good night.
First of all, this was our Anniversary dinner so we hoping for great service and great food. The appetizers were great and fairly quick to serve, the main course arrived 40 minutes after the order was placed. My wifes food was good however my ribeye was horrendous, I've never spat my food out at a fine restaurant every in my life.
Never would recommend this restaurant to anyone. Terrible!
Great service (Mitch). Terrific food. (Shrimp risotto and KC strip). Always a quiet and easy experience.
Our server was awkward and made us feel really uncomfortable. She did not go over the specials, we heard other waitstaff give quite the opening run down. She barely said two words and they were “sounds good” even when that response made zero sense. Our food was blah and cold. I got the hanger steak Oscar. Asked for it medium it was way past well done. The Oscar, if you call it that, looked like canned tuna. There was no sauce at all. It was over cooked and super cold. Probably won’t be back.
Excellent service and amazing food
Expensive, but great food. We had gift cards, otherwise I'm not sure we would have ever have gone here. Glad we did though!
