Very nicely decorated steakhouse in downtown Salem. How did we not know it was there? They have done a beautiful job with outdoor dining, but also have widely spaced indoor dining. We all had steaks, which were excellent, but I want to go back to try some of their other entrees.

The restaurant has potential, it just needs some help. The place was dirty. Cob webs on the lighting a nest camera in the corner. There was a large horse fly that kept smashing itself into the window, and we had two flies mating in our candle on the table. My husband order his steak medium and it arrived very well done with out a spot of pink. My asparagus was complete mush and not edible, while my husbands asparagus was hard and seemed uncooked. The flavors of the food were fine. The service was slow and lackluster. I would maybe try again for happy hour.

Had a get together with family before mom headed home. None of us had ever eaten there. It was very clean and well staffed. You could sit in formal dining area , bar, or outside covered patio. It was a hot day so we choose the patio. It was a little noisy due to traffic traveling under parking garage and the amplification of noise. The service and food made up for it. The waitresses were very attentive. The food was cooked and flavored perfectly. Highly recommend. Is on high in side for cost, but would be awesome for a special occasion.

I have eaten at Rudy's a couple of times. The first time was PERFECTION! Amazing food, stellar service, and great atmosphere! This second visit was a little disappointing since the bar got set so high previously. My filet mignon was a little dry on the first bite, the potatoes were over-seasoned, the starter salad was wetly dressed, but the crab cake appetizer was great and my additional side was delicious. Service seemed less attentive, but the place was busy. I will still go back, but hopefully that initial visit is the service and experience I get again.

Rudy's is an excellent restaurant for the Salem area - delicious food and great service. Only issue for us was a table next to us with very small, screaming children, and after the waitress moved us to a booth, the foursome next to us were extremely loud too. No easy solutions except for getting a babysitter instead of bringing small children, and for adults to have more manners when they are out in public. We will be back again as the lobster was fabulous! Next time we may sit in the bar or maybe on the patio.

Love this restaurant. When I feel like I want to really celebrate we will head here. Everything I’ve tried in the menu is delicious and I never feel like I’m going to get a bad dish even when I try something out of the ordinary. Would recommend for anyone to try!

Honestly, amazing. The outdoor seating is on a street in Salem, you will get the noise of the cars, but what do you expect, you’re downtown. Everything can’t be perfect. The music helped to try and drown out the noise of cars and I could still hear the conversation I was having. Win-win! My first time ever going there, I knew it would be pricey, but I would pay that bill again! The food was outstanding and the staff were amazing. Polite and helpful, wished m us a happy anniversary, even brought out a special dessert for us! If you wanted to be treated kindly and have an amazing meal plus drinks, Rudy’s is the best!!

From a price perspective, this is a high-end steak house. Great atmosphere and decent parking for a downtown location. The food was good, but not amazing. The service was very slow and the bathrooms had not been attended to in some time. I'd give it another try but disappointed, given the price point.

Ceased Salad was completely saturated in salad dressing. Dressing was so strong neither of us could eat the salad. Fish was over cooked and dry. Risotto was served cold, peas in the risotto were undercooked.

Service was fair. They took care of a special request but there were some longs waits for things.

Excellent service throughout the dining experience. The food was superbly tasteful. Quantity was more than ample My wife had the delicious crab cakes (got to sample a bite) and I had the Salmon Neptune. The only flaw in the whole experience was that the salmon was a little cooler to the taste than I would have liked.

I would not recommend the Salmon Neptune entree. It’s one of the most expensive dishes but the cream cheese filling for the salmon is supposed to have shrimp and crab however it’s just mushy and not delicious.

Best place in Salem for moderate upscale dining. Meats are all fantastic and service is always great. We really love their filet, pork chop, prime rib and ribeye burger to name a few entrees.

Maine Lobster melts in your mouth, paired with medallion filet mignon that melts in your mouth also. Great attentive service.

This is our second time at Rudy's. My prime rib was excellent, but my husband was disappointed in his. For the price, he expected more.

I had a gift card I purchased back in December and took my grandson for a special day out. We enjoyed our visit and the food was delicious. Our rib-eye burgers were cooked exactly how asked and was so thick, we could have shared and still been very full. My grandson noticed lip stick on his water glass so we told the waitress, who apologized, then brought him another. It was a bit concerning receiving something like this but didn't ask for management. He had numerous refills but I never had my tea refilled. The chairs were very comfortable but our table wasn't spaced from the next over per pandemic requirements. In all, we enjoyed our meal and want to come back to try a different menu item. I like how you can order off the lunch menu if want with a slightly longer wait. Just please, make sure glasses and other items are cleaned well and when refilling one guest, ask if the others would like too or bring one if asked.

Must have been short staffed in the kitchen on this night. Took longer than it should have to get our meals. Usually this place is a hit, but this time around it was just ok.

Lobster ($80 per person) was over cooked to the point where is was tough and had lost most of it's flavor. We had been waiting about 1.5 hours at our table - so went ahead and ate anyway - without sending it back as we didn't want another wait for dinner. Baked potatoes also way overdone.
Service was excellent - but we are concerned that the kitchen would send out 2 expensive entrees that were so overdone.
I will add, one customer next to us had a baseball cap on backwards and another was wearing a stocking cap. A fine dining establishment should maintain a higher level of dress code.

We have eaten here in the past and it was very good. The service this time was fine but the food was not what we expected. We had lunch. The soup was barely warm and the prime rib sandwich (for what it was) was overpriced and the meat was cold. When asked, she said it was deli meat which is served cold. This should be stated on your menu as we were expecting the meat to be warm, at the very least. We were disappointed as we have eaten there twice before and it was a good experience.

Always wonderful and consistent. My only complaint would be the music was a touch too loud, but we were surrounded by loud talkers so it could have been the combination of everything. Also our server ran out to the street to return my mom’s credit card that she had left behind. Appreciate the extra effort and kindness! We will be back soon!
