We had a lovely experience at Rudy’s. We were there for my son’s birthday. The food was amazing and the service was perfect. Attentive but not annoying. We will back to try every other thing on the menu!

Thursday night alley concert with Ty Curtis Band made an already great dining experience even better. Having the best steaks around, and a martini, make it the tip top.

Our anniversary dinner was marred by poorly cooked calamari and bad steak bites presentation. Ended up not ordering dinner.

We sat outside the setting was very nice just a little noisy because of a tunnel that was nearby it would get a little noisy from time time. Food was very good and didn’t have to wait long for service the waitress and helpers were very friendly and accommodating. We ordered the butterflied shrimp and the halibut over pesto fettuccine which were both very good. The appetizer was not as good, it was a seafood combination over what said toast but it was more of a roll. It would have been better if it was a thin toast and not a roll. Overall experience was good and we will go back!

This was our first visit. The interior was dramatically different than Urban Alley, which we didn't like. Service was excellent. Cost for a meal was on the higher side. This is a place to go for special occasions or to have a cocktail in the cozy bar.

I had an amazing server, a great atmosphere and phenomenal food. The steak melted in my mouth and could be cut with a butter knife. I will gladly recommend this place to others!

Great place for a steak in Salem. They also have a nice outdoor seating area. The place we sat was next to a large group and it was very noisy. Aside from that, service was great and food was exactly what we expected. We will return!

Absolutely one of the best steaks I have ever had. The staff was genuinely caring and attentive. Even though the restaurant was packed, our server made us feel as though we were her only and most important customers. You need to experience Rudy's for yourself or you will be missing the best dinner and customer service !!

Usually this place is fabulous. We took guests from out of town. Took almost an hour to get the salad course. When the meal finally came — another half hour later — although it tasted good, it was generally luke warm. All except the Ceasar that was warm and a little Wilted. Guess the extra time was waiting for it All to reach room temp. Disappointing meal.

I would recommend Rudy's to my friends however I would caution them as to the immaturity of the waitress we had. She called us GUYS every time she had an encounter with us and kept disappearing for lengthy amounts of time. It was an odd hour so the restaurant was really slow but Still kept leaving us to look for her!

Absolutely our experience met or exceeded all expectations. This was our first time to Rudy’s but won’t be our last. Charles was our waiter and was extremely helpful in guiding through the menu and answering our questions! The rib eye steak was delicious, as were the crab cakes, the clam chowder, and the cocktails! The nation berry cobbler for desert was the best ever. Thanks, Rudy’s for a great experience.

Our servers were wonderful, but the food was really bad. 3 out of the 5 dinners served were WAY OFF. The 2 successful dishes were teriyaki beef off of the children's menu.

For the adults, the salmon topped with crab was overstuffed with cream cheese and hardly any crab (why in the dungeness crab state would you use 2 teaspoons of crab and 1/2 C filler in a salmon filet???) and then blanketed in a broken cream sauce, so clearly it was neither well prepared, nor freshly served. The whole dish was really unappealing. The prime rib end-cuts were not prepared properly either, indicating the rib itself hadn't had time to slow roast and absorb the seasoning. Not the first time I've experienced the kitchen failing the front of the house. I'd recommend Rudy's for the bar scene, and possibly a lady's lunch, but I'm no longer interested in dinner there until the kitchen can complement the excellent staff and aesthetic. This was the last strike in 5 dining experiences.

We went especially to hear Ty Curtis and we were glad to sit indoors because the music was very loud. But thoroughly enjoyable!!
The food was exceptional!! As well as the service. It took a little longer than usual to get our drinks but it was because the bar was slammed!! The server was apologetic and sincere and made sure that everything else came right away.
Definitely coming back. The steak bites melted in your mouth and the brussel sproats were delicious!!

The service was compromised due to the volume of people there. Surprised us considering it was a Thursday night. The outside concert they had going on really slammed the service people and the bar tender.

Food was fantastic, service was excellent, and meals came out of the kitchen in a fairly quick time frame, considering how busy the restaurant was. A table for two is a little on the small size, but they do need to accommodate a large number of seating.

While I stated I would recommend to a friend, it is with some hesitation. The restaurant itself is very pleasing and the service was very good; however, the steaks both my wife and I ordered were mediocre at best. For the price of the meal we left somewhat disappointed.

First visit to Rudy’s but it certainly won’t be my last. I always thought steakhouses were overrated, but in this case I stand corrected. They exceeded my expectations without a doubt. All courses were prepared to near perfection. A delicious experience indeed.

I can make steaks or burgers as good or better at home. They are very good here, but.., the dungeness crab cakes appetizer are fantastic. They got me on that one. The aioli is perfect with it.
