Food was delicious -- but it seemed like they were quite understaffed for a Sunday night.

Service was par tonight. Server did not get things correct, felt rushed, food was not as good as usual. Rib Eye was thin cut and slightly overcooked, potato was cold, had to ask for beverage refills.

Its a really nice restaurant space. Came here to celebrate my husband’s 35th birthday who was really looking forward to a Prime Rib, but was pretty disappointed after having placed the order to be told they were all out. Ordered a Rib Eye instead, which was good but not memorable. Told our server we didn’t want any bacon in our plates and turned out those brussels sprouts come loaded with it. She didn’t acknowledge our birthday reservations either, which was also pretty disappointing.

The service from the moment we walked in was exceptional. The food is always amazing and we tried new dishes this time and now have new favorites. Best steak and seafood in the salem area! Also the wine selection was ideal for a wine lover.

I feel like for the cost of the meal which runs around $50 -$60 without even having a drink that it should be some of the best food I’ve ever tasted. Well both of me and my husband‘s meals were lukewarm almost cold. Our baked potatoes were cold. But we were so hungry we eat them anyway. Also the chairs that we sit on were ripped up.

Ordered the new york strip steak with rice pilaf and was sorely disappointed. The steak was cooked well but was plain. I've had better rice pilaf from a bar, it was boring and didn't have any seasonings on it at all. For a $46 plate of food the presentation should have had more flare, there were no garnishes, no sauces, no seasonings, nothing to make you feel like you were having a fancy evening out. The restaurant is very classy, the drinks were great, the staff was hustling, but at least this dish needs work.

we have eaten several times before at Rudy. WE always enjoyed our meals. The table cloth's give it a very clean appearance. This time my wife's food was cold, and I had to wait for her meal to arrive, so mine got cold also. Will we go again yes. The waiter was great, she really took action and got my wife's meal as fast as she could,and God's Blessings.

Arika is an amazing wait person with personal attention and she genuinely cares about what you want. She always fills special requests and makes each visit just right. I had the filet medallions. The sauce was delicious and the portion size was perfect. My husband had the baseball cut steak and it was cooked perfectly. We always enjoy our visit to Rudy's Steakhouse.

My Mother's 60th birthday overall was absolutely wonderful. We really appreciated the last minute change of the party to add one more person.
The cocktails, wine and spirits list was superb! We will be back for future Happy Hour dates!
However, my Mother had the Lobster and it was actually pretty chewy and lacked flavor, which she wasn't impressed with. It was a little disheartening for her birthday meal. I wasn't impressed with that for a $54 dollar plate of Lobster.
My husband had the Rib Eye steak, and I had a Filet Mignon, and we both felt the steaks lacked seasoning and flavor.
One of our guests had the Lamb Chops, which had spectacular flavor. So it seemed a bit off balanced where seasoning was used and lacked. However the steak was cooked to perfection, and the appetizers and sides were good.
Overall, the experience was delightful other than what was highlighted above.
Thank you for a memorable experience for my Mother. She had a lovely time.

The steak was amazing. The toppings are great--a tad pricey in my opinion, but we splurged lol The brussel sprouts were to die for and the cake was divine. We cannot wait to go back!

I took my wife to Rudy's for our wedding anniversary and we both really enjoyed it. The atmosphere is very nice, the wait staff was efficient and personable, and the food was really good. The standout dish for us was the Brussel Sprout appetizer, and I really liked the Caesar salad. My wife's stuffed ground sirloin was also delicious. My filet was cooked as ordered, but was a little more dry than I expected. We had the Marion Berry cobbler with vanilla ice cream for dessert and it was a wonderful blend of tart and sweet flavors. They also have an amazing collection of single malt scotches, if you are into them.

Roy had a tonight's special Stake worth USD60, which we were not made aware of when explaining by the waitress, however the stake was not even average. the Stake was undercooked and had no outstanding taste. The lobster was cooked way too much. Being a stake house we would assume they would at least specialize in the stake.

Fuimos a celebrar nuestro aniversario y no la pasamos muy agradable. Lo que yo elegí estuvo riquísimo pero el platillo de mi esposo, no tuvo el sabor que pensó que iba tener. También nos regalaron un postre que estuvo delicioso. Si regreso en el futuro para otra ocasión especial. La chica que nos atendió, siento que hizo bien, no estuvo yendo todo el tiempo sino algo razonable y estaba al alcance por si necesitábamos algo. Fueron muy amables otras meseras y eso es algo que me gusta de un lugar.

Really enjoyed the beauty of the restaurant! The menu was fantastic. Calamari was too salty. Also onions on steak were too salty took away from the flavor. Loved the cucumber watermelon martini. Service was slower than I imagined. Would of had one more drink if it didn’t sit empty for 10 minutes.

Everything was great except the food was served luke warm. The baked potato was pretty firm inside and was more of the texture of potato in potato salad. My steak was cooked perfect medium rare but it was only warm. Also it would be nice if it was served with a sauce like pepper sauce as most steak houses do. My wife's fish was on the cool side too. I also noticed that when people left. The staff removed table cloths replaced them but they did not wipe down anything including the seats where people sat. This is the first place I noticed they don't spray down everything before new guess arrived. Made us feel a little bit nervous about that.
