We had a fantastic dinner at Rudy’s. Had the tomahawk steak for three of us and it was very good. Really enjoyed our meal.

Rudy’s was great! The food was excellent and the staff attentive. The noise from one table was a bit obnoxious. The seating arrangement is strange in that you walk through people..I felt like I was in a fishbowl. Otherwise it was great. I definitely will go back but ask for a semi private table!

I ordered the dry aged ribeye. I am pretty sure they served me a New York. I pointed out that it was tougher than would be expected in a dry aged ribeye. They took my left over steak and agreed that it was tougher than it should have been. They comped us our deserts. Notwithstanding, it is a good steakhouse but does not quite make it to the level of Ringside or Ruth's Chris. I would like to give them another try.

My husband and I decided on Rudy’s for both my birthday and as a first husband-wife outing after having our first baby. We both ordered a mixed beverage, and they were excellent! My husband had a Moscow Mule, and I had a Purple Haze. As someone who hasn’t had a drink in 10 months, it was a wonderful blend of excellent taste and just enough vodka kick to make itself known. Our meals were also superb. My steak and sides were cooked to perfection, and my husband’s pasta dish had a sauce that I only wish I could emulate! Finally, the staff were polite, professional, and personable. Overall I am very happy with our choice of a first outing and we will hopefully be returning soon!

My wife and I enjoy trying new restaurants; it's sort of a hobby of ours. Over the past few months, we have dined at a half dozen or so high-end eateries. All were extremely good but Rudy's Steakhouse now ranks as the best of the bunch. Everything was top drawer, from the service to the food. We shall definitely return.

We had a great early dinner. The wait staff was totally professional and proper. Our food was great.
One comment..you gave an ample wedge salad, but it was romaine lettuce instead of a wedge of iceberg. That cool crunch is the most desirable part.

Couldn’t make a cocktail correct even after we told them...vodka Collins is not that hard. Also, ordered the ribeye with lobster medallions...they smothered the steak with the lobster sauce. And finally, my wife ordered the end cut prime rib which came out rare...if you don’t have an end cut that is ready, so state. We won’t be back.

We visited for my mom's birthday with a party of 7. The wait staff was very friendly and patient with our questions and served us great (strong) drinks. Our food was fantastic! I believe they wait for everyone's order to be ready because it all came out at once. We were there for at least 2 hours on a crowded night and never felt rushed, everyone was super attentive. They had no issues splitting our tab 3 ways. Great night!

We thought it was nice, and food was really good. A bit on the expensive side, which would have been fine if wait staff and atmosphere matched the taste of the food.

Our ribeye steak was very fatty...Which was below average. For over 12 years eating at Rudy’s...this was the worse steak we’ve been served. Especially for the increased Valentine’s Day price.

We have very mixed feelings about Rudy's. But we probably won't be back. Our server and all of the employees were wonderful, the restaurant was very clean, beautifully decorated and comfortable although it felt like all of the tables and chairs were packed in a little tighter than they should be. We aren't big people but had to ask a few other patrons to scoot their chairs for us to be able to exit when we were done. Our drink order was taken promptly, beverages arrived shortly thereafter and we placed our food order. Then we waited over an hour for our food. My older teenage kids were very hungry and mostly filled themselves with the multiple drink refills - that arrived without us having to ask for them- and rolls. Which is good and bad. It's nice that multiple free refills came quickly but we would have rather had our food. Of the six of us three of us ordered the filet mignon, two had steak bites and one had a chicken Caesar salad. The steak was very good. Everything else was mediocre at best. My daughter's chicken from her salad was extremely dry and lacked any flavor or seasoning at all. My husband and I couldn't even swallow the bites that she shared with us. The asparagus and mashed potato sides were very bland. We were excited to go to a steakhouse that didn't require us driving to Portland but I think we will keep looking for one.

2nd visit, date night, food was fabulous and service was great, even while they were very busy. The noise level was a bit higher than anticipated but that might be due to the early evening reservation. Overall great.

The filet medallions were cooked perfectly medium rare but the SanteFe sauce was a little more like brown gravy with mushrooms (not necessarily my favorite.) I would definitely order the filet but probably pick the blue cheese or no sauce. The special aged rib eye steak was good but not great nor was it as tender as the filet medallions. Salad and dessert was good. Service (Charles) was excellent! Very attentive and personable. We will definitely go back.

Came here for a birthday lunch and it was wonderful. Had been here two months earlier with an excellent experience and wondered if we would experience the same again. We were not disappointed. Service was great and the food was amazing. Every one of us had different items and loved them all. Did not disappoint and I would recommend this restaurant entirely. Already know I'm coming here for my birthday in April.
