After dining @ Rudy’s since it opened we have decided that was probably our last time. Dinner took an hour to serve…we came to eat, not drink! The food was not up to what we’ve always experienced @ Rudy’s & sad to say for a Tuesday night was a totally disappointing evening😟

Great food but super loud. Plenty of excellent wait staff who are knowledgeable of the menu. Even with “six feet spacing” had to carry on conversation. Great menu with all the bases covered.

The asparagus was over cooked. The chicken breast was not fresh, almost as if it was reheated from the night before. The steak bites were cooked well but barley warm by the time they were served. It was not mentioned as I was so disappointed. I am a regular at Rudy's and this by far was the most disappointing meal I have ever bene served. This is the first time I've eaten on a Sunday, not even busy. The weekly lunches have had better food and served hot.

The food was great with the slight exception that it was a bit too salty. Every other aspect of dining at Rudy’s was perfect.

Dinner was good. Steamed clams seem like they needed a little more flavor. Dinner entrees Lamb chops, Prime rib, salmon filet special with a crab scampi looked good. Wedge salad yummy! Could've used more rolls. Marionberry lemonade tasted like water. No flavor. I was so excited they had blueberry bread pudding on the menu. But when it was dessert time, I ordered it and then the waitress came back saying they were out. Granted it was only 7pm. I was so so so bummed. I was looking forward for it all week. So my second choice was Crème Brule. When the desserts came out, they looked like they came from a school cafeteria. The Marionberry cobbler was cold. So the ice cream didn't even melt. The crème Brule was cold like they just took it out of the fridge. Nothing really fancy coming from a fancy expensive restaurant. Disappointing.
But all in all it was good. It take them about 45 minutes for the entrees to come out with the waitress coming to the table twice saying your dinner will be out shortly. I'd go back. But if I do I will call them first and tell them to please save me a bread pudding.

My father, fiancé, and I went here to celebrate my father coming up from Los Angeles to visit us as well as the excellent reviews. My father had extremely high hopes for this place after seeing the reviews and the menu options. Everything seemed to be going well until our entrees came. The waitress spilled the lobster butter on my father as she attempted to place his meal. Taken aback, we all reacted promptly, except for the waitress. She starred, did not say much and apologized after realizing what she had done. After my father went to the bathroom to try to wash off what was spilled on his clothes, it was clear that his clothes would be stained. The waitress gave us a 12 dollar slice of cake without saying much else. My father was extremely disappointed as his pants alone cost more than his own meal, yet all that could be offered was a slice of cake. Also my fiancés steak was dry.

It was all good but rather expensive. I make no further recommendation pro or con. We'll probably eat there again but only for special occasions (due to the cost).

The calamari was perfectly cooked and slightly spicy but we loved it. The pork chop was slightly undercooked. The Salmon Neptune was delicious if you like rich. My wife and I always order Spanish Coffees wherever we go and Rudy’s is definitely in the top 5. Loved our experience.

We enjoyed almost everything about our experience at Rudys EXCEPT the man at a table near us had his dog with him, sitting on his lap with its face over the table. It was a small dog so obviously not a assistance dog and in our opinion should not be in a restaurant. Dogs have an odor and it spoiled the ambiance by having it there.

Service needs work! Not the servers fault, just obviously not trained well. That is on the management. Paying fine dining prices, (bill over $500.00 for 4 top), one would except fine dining service. Plates never cleared, wine not poured except for initially. Had to ask for several things that should have been done automatically in an establishment that considers themselves a fine dining restaurant. Not sure I will return.

The best happy hour in Salem! The most delicious cocktail options made by very talented bartenders (specifically Alex! He was great!) made for a very pleasant evening. The restaurant is clean and inviting and our appetizers and entrees came out quickly and were perfect. We will definitely be back very soon!

We had a reservation. Seated quickly inside but next time we will choose outside with all the fire pits and heaters, looked like fun out there! Between three of us we greatly enjoyed the Salmon Special, Prime Rib and a Stuffed meat paddy with a mushroom gravy. ALL very delicious. Drinks were perfect, as was the appetizer crab dip. Already to go back again!!! Soooooo Goooood!!

Entertaining a friend from back east on her birthday. Monday night is always a bit of a challenge for finding a quality restaurant. Thankfully Rudy’s is open on Mondays!! We had a wonderful meal with excellent servers and our friend had a glorious birthday. She loved the place and the perfectly done cocktails. Thank you for such a great experience.

Main course and service were great. Appetizers and sides were mediocre at best. 75% of the steamed clams I had were dirty - not pleasant biting on sand/dirt. Shame it colored the experience. Same with loud table nearby listening to their phones on speakers - very obnoxious. Great looking and feeling place without the loud diners.

Steaks were good to almost great. For the price, expected a better cut for the filet but the steaks were cooked to order. The sides were good also.

We had a table of 12 and the staff at Rudys still gave us great service, didn't mess up any of our orders, our drinks were always full and food came out hot. They made our work dinner a great experience.
