The food was impeccable! The service was personal, timely, and professional. The music was a little loud and the lighting a little too low. Overall, a very very good experience. Would recommend to others! Waitress Charlotte was VERY good!

We had an excellent server, but our prime rib dinners were not the quality we have experienced in the past at Judsons.

The food was fine but I could get an equivalent steak meal at a chain for a fraction of the price. There seas nothing outstanding about it. My husband ordered steak and also thought it was okay but not what we were expecting for the price.

Our server Collin was fantastic. My wife and I went with his recommendations and he was spot on with the explanations. He didn’t hover but was on time for drinks.
The kitchen had food out with great timing we weren’t rushed and yet had enough time to conversate and enjoy each other’s company.
The food drinks and ambiance were outstanding.

Our server made a conscious effort to connect with us quickly - he was great. The food was fantastic, and the restaurant was surprisingly quiet/tranquil considering the noise and bustle in the rest of the building. I have several severe food allergies and our server took care to ensure I had a safe and delicious meal. We will definitely be back!

The staff was pleasant and related to us nicely. We were warmly greeted and sat immediately for our 6:15 reservation, we arrived 5 minutes early. Drinks were good, I enjoyed a couple Stouts and my wife a couple glasses of wine. We had tickets to Hamilton and thought we provided enough time. The food was slow to arrive, we passed on ordering appetizers and went right for the main course. Our food didn't arrive to the table until 7:10. The restaurant was not full, so unsure it would take 45+ minutes to provide 2 filets and two sides. My wife's 6 oz filet was cooked perfectly, Medium. My Filet (8oz), also ordered "medium" was still Moo'ing. I didn't want to wait to send it back as we had tickets to Hamilton. The taste was good, but the cold center isn't my thing. If you plan on going here make sure you allow enough time.

I thoroughly researched this restaurant for a date night with my husband. Get there and was told it was suit and tie only and got turned away. Do not reccomend. Staff was very rude and told us we should have known.

Steaks were really good even though they weren’t cooked completely to our specifications. It was pricey, but we knew that prior to making reservations. We got there on time and the hostess got us our table right away.

The last time we ate there was about 4 years ago. Went there for my birthday because they had specials. I was shocked of the cost and how much it has gone up since the last time. I would not recommend going there unless you save up quite a bit. Some of us ordered the grilled chicken and it was bland with no flavor. Wished they marinated the meat. For a luxury restaurant, they should have stepped it up to flavored the meals.

Family Christmas celebration. Not a great experience. The restaurant wasn’t very busy but food and drinks took a long time to come out. Portions are small. Ordered my steak as medium rare but came out well done. Just not the best experience. Many other great steak options in GR.

This was my first time dining here and I found the food to be mediocre for the price. The service and cocktails were impeccable though. I’ll wait awhile before I give them another try.

While we have frequented The BOB for years, this was our first visit to Judson's.

The food was spectacular. We each ordered a steak from the block: the Boursin-stuffed filet and the bone-in strip. Both were delicious, though I would recommend ordering the filet without the glaze. We swapped the traditional Yukon garlic mashed potatoes for the Boursin Yukon garlic mashed, which was delicious and full of flavor. The crab cake with corn relish appetizer was above average, but not necessarily a "must have" the way crab cakes can be. An unexpectedly excellent part of the evening was the bread service.

Our server was fantastic. Personable, engaging, and full of energy, his attentive service brought the evening to a new level.

Our drinks were excellent as well. A winter white cosmopolitan and The Burro, a tequila-based mule, were both excellent twists on old favorites.

Ambience was nice, though we had a party seated nearby who was rather loud for a portion of the evening (though, of course, that is not the fault of Judson's).

It was a nice place , service was rather slow had to look around often for a waitress, I would have liked my meal much hotter/temp wise then what was presented to me and thought it was rather cold along with the asparagus was really cold didn't have time to send it back because we had a show to attend for the amount of monies I spent I would think things would have been much more top notch , I'm highly doubtful I will return again for a 2nd test like I said we spent alot of monies but the the quality and the service did not match the price I paid at the end .
