The only suggestion I have was that the brunch plate included fresh fruit...only about 5 pieces giving the
suggestion they were running out in the kitchen.

Rudy's is hands down one of the best fine dining options in Salem. Our meal was just delicious and the drink menu was very inventive. The steaks were prepared a perfect medium rare, the seafood appetizers were the star of the show, and dessert was finished despite how full we all were - it was just that good.
The waitstaff was friendly and quick with offers of another round of drinks. I also appreciated that they never rushed us along.
The only negative, and this is very nitpicky, was the staff's attention to detail was slightly lacking. We ordered appetizers but didn't receive appetizer plates. Instead we used our bread plates but some of those were never cleared the entire meal while others were taken. Then when the bread came those people had no plates for bread. Silverware was also not replaced with each course, with even a mention made of "saving" our salad fork for dinner. Many plates were not cleared during the meal leaving us with a table full of dirty dishes while we were trying to savor our drinks and dessert. Given the price point and ambiance they are striving for, this was a surprising miss.
All in all I would absolutely recommend this for a nice night out in Salem.

Perhaps we visited this well-regarded steakhouse on an off night since our experience was less-than-stellar. Place was buzzing when we arrived so we expected an outstanding meal. Our waitress was lovely and there certainly seemed to be enough staff but something wasn't clicking. Repeatedly asked for bottled water, refills for the tap water and our bread came with our salads. That being said, the waitress noticed my second lamb chop was extremely small and ordered a third at no charge. Very classy. Wine list is extensive. Perhaps an off night but certainly not up to the service standards of a Vegas, Chicago or NYC steakhouse.

First time to Rudy’s to celebrate our 26th anniversary. Our meal and service was wonderful. Didn’t like where we sat. We were seated in the glass area and I literally FROZE! Didn’t care for the seating or the lighting for a romantic dinner.

We just moved 1 month ago from Miami and this is the best food, best service, and best atmosphere in Salem. Thanks a lot Ashley if I’m not wrong with her name. She was amazing.

My wife and I have been to Rudy’s several times now and have enjoyed it each time. It’s a great place to meet friends and unwind while having excellent hand crafted cocktails for the ladies and a great beer selection for the fellas. It’s also an excellent place for a special date night with a great atmosphere. No need to drive long distances to find the best steak you’ll ever eat. I also highly recommend the crab cakes. The staff is super friendly and efficient.

Usually you have a good meal and there is a standout item, my experience was different... ALL of our items were outstanding. The Brussel Sprouts were delicious... the potato wasn't ho-hum, it was good... the Filet Mignon... melt in your mouth tender. The Duckhorn merlot wine was smooth. Blueberry Bread pudding and Coffee, great combo. I must say, best meal I ever had in Salem area. Pricey but worth every penny.

Our go to place for birthdays and anniversaries. In my opinion, the nicest restaurant in Salem. The food is outstanding. I've had a variety of steaks and lamb, always perfect. My wife loves their salmon fillet. Their clam chowder may be the best in town.

The food was excellent. Best steak ive had in salem by far. The drinks are a little pricey but you can expect that from any nice steakhouse. If I had any complaint at all the broccoli could have been cooked a bit longer, it was still good though. Everything tasted really fresh from the veggies to the seafood. 5 stars

The place is cute. Hostess are friendly. Food and drinks not so good and expensive for the taste. Not worth $100+ on a meal for two .
Also tables are way to close to each other it’s awkward having a conversation.

As always the food was excellent. Our server seemed to be overwhelmed. Delivered one of our drinks to the wrong table, brought the salads late so we were still eating them when our excellent entrees arrived. Had some weird substance in the bottom of my beer and she just kind of shrugged it off. I love this place and understand that stuff happens .The host was very gracious and gave us a small gift card for our trouble. I will eat here again without hesitation.

We were 11 people for dinner for our granddaughters 20th birthday! I would have to say it was maybe the best place all in all I’ve ever been to. We have traveled the world! The food was extremely good. Waitress was amazing. Such a real genuine person! Thankyou Rudy’s! We will be back!
We tried all 6 of your desserts..hard to choose the best one as they were all very good. A very special place to have in Salem!
We will be back

Came a couple minutes late than our reservation but they were more than happy to serve us. All the servers were great. I requested Colin as a server and we got him, he was outstanding.

The food and drinks were great! Thanks Chef & Bartenders! I will definitely keep coming back, thanks Rudy’s for a great dinner night!

The only reason I didn't give it five stars, was the room that we had got pretty loud when all five tables full. The place food was great and our servers were amazing which makes the experience so much better. I really appreciate customer service these days...hard to find.

I took my fiancee to dinner for her birthday. We were seated at a lovely table inside by the front windows. We had two terrific cocktails and our server shared the daily specials. We chose the filet mignon and the New York strip steaks which were prepared to perfection. The portions were so large we had to take half of them home. Then to our surprise, our server appeared with marianberry cobbler with a single candle to be blown out on such a special occasion. We had a very memorable evening. Thank you so much for making it so!
