    The food is absolutely amazing! If you like Salmon the Salmon Neptune is one of the neat dishes I have had. All their food from soup, entrees, amd appetizers are all good! The Marionberry lemonade is our favorite non alcoholic drink! The customer service is also so good. Everyone is super nice! Severs Mari and Joshua are the best!

    My girlfriend had the Mhe Medaliioins and they were perfect but my shrimp was dry and almost imposable to remove the shells from the meat. The Asparagus was perfect but the masshed potatoes were on the dry sideas well but quite flaverful. I will be sticking to the beef in the future. Service was great and all the staff were wonderful.

    Food was good, but definitely not worth the prices. It was my favorite restaurant for years, but not anymore. Prices have skyrocketed and quality has not. Our server was kind, but not around at all. My water (only bevearge) sat empty for my entire meal. My husband had a sprite that never got refilled either but the staff filled his low glass of sprite with water... we had to ask for more rolls.

    Food was solid if not spectacular. Steak was flavorful and well cooked. Brussels sprouts were dripping with gooey sauce. Draft coming in from the outdoor dining area every time door was opened. Service was very slow - well over an hour from seating to entrees arriving.

    Our party chose the bar setting last evening. We enjoy the ‘noisy’ atmosphere and we were seated in time to order from the daily happy hour menu. Service was great! Tommy saw to our every request. The Filet Mignon and Crab Louie were delicious!

    This will be my new "go to steak" restaurant. Was at John's when he had the place at Salem Golf Club. First time at this location. What a treat. Melt in your mouth steak. Exceptional service. Salem should be proud to have a top shelf, family friendly, casual dress, restaurant. Sure beats having to drive to Portland .

    Frequent Rudy’s diners, but this time I was disappointed not to be able to give 5 stars across the board for two reasons: our reserved table was really inconveniently placed in the upper dining room—inconvenient for the servers who had to squeeze behind one of our diners (a skinny young man who was as close to the table as he could be), and although they tried their best, they bumped into him several times (to the point where our wonderful server apologized to him—and again, not his fault). Secondly, treating myself to the most expensive item on the menu, all was wonderful except for the unsightly, pile of giant, tough asparagus spears that showed no sign of being grilled; just plain, unseasoned, and uneatable except for the tips. And I like asparagus!

    Best meal and service we’ve had in a long time. Right up there with fine restaurants in Monterey Ca, Texas, Hawaii, San Diego, Ritz Carlton in Halfmoon Bay Ca. Me and wife like romantic fine dining and Rudy’s is well worth it. Thank you for a wonderful dinner. We will be having many more date nights with you folks.

    If, as a diner, ambiance is important to you, when you go to this restaurant specify where you want to be seated. There are two large beautiful dining areas. There is a third small dining room that is not. It's small, drab, and feels like an overflow room. This would be okay if you were dropping in without a reservation but if you'd made a reservation several days ahead of time (which I did) it's not acceptable. It's also not acceptable to have reservations for a specified time and be seated 30 minutes past that time. The restaurant was busy, I understand that but if I'm going to wait an additional 30 minutes past my reservation I would at least like to be seated in one of the nicer dining areas, not an overflow room. I've been to this restaurant two times previously and was in the dining room that is south of the hostess station-a beautiful room. I'm guessing many people go to this restaurant for its reputation as an above-average and beautiful place to dine in Salem, OR. The prices are definitely above average so why not give every diner an above-average dining experience?

    Our third outing at this restaurant and we'll return but would hope for a change or two. Food is generally quite good. The petit filet was undercooked and more medium rare than rare. The cajun chicken fettucine was excellent. Cocktails were slow in coming. Not a dealbreaker. Staff is friendly and efficient. The only caveat is that we couldn't finish (servings are large) and asked for boxes, which were then brought to our table for us to spoon in. It felt like we were asked to clean up after an invitation to someone's home for dinner. Again, not a dealbreaker, but it's not the high-end experience we've had in our previous home cities (Portland, SF, Dallas).

    Rudy’s never disappoints. My wife had the starter salad and the salmon fillet with lobster sauce. I had a cup of clam chowder and a medium rare ribeye. Everything was delicious. I make special note of the clam chowder, which I feel is the best in Oregon. Professional, unobtrusive service, great ambiance. It was a perfect evening.

    This visit was disappointed compared to other visits. Having a reservation and seemed still waitted over a hour to get main meal when others were served first before us and get their food right after us, when they were seated way after us. When we did receive our meal it teasted and felt reheated. I do appreciate them discounting bill without me asking

    Rudy's is the classic steakhouse experience. Attentive, excellent staff, mouth watering food, and a lovely dining experience overall. My wife and I are not huge eaters, but we shared a prawn cocktail, wedge salad, and the filet and lobster plate with roasted gold potatoes. It was more than enough for the two of us, and we didn't overspend! The lobster and steak were both "melt in your mouth delicious".

    We had two servers throughout the evening. The first one seemed new, the second was great. We odererd calamari. It was small and chewy. We didn't eat it but first server never offered to do anything about it. No worries. The rest of the meals were really good. The dragon's breath drink was not worth the money.

    Meh. Food took forever to get to us and it was only appetizers. Table next to us was seated 30 minutes after us and their food came out before ours. Prices are high enough at this place that you should expect it to be better. Will not return here except for a drink. Whiskey and bourbon list was impressive.

    We went last year for our 37th anniversary and it was a nice experience. We went back this year and everything was great except, I ordered a 12 oz steak cooked medium.. I got an 8 oz that was medium well. My wife's asparagus had a weird smell like propane or natural gas. My asparagus was good. I like this place, but this year's experience was not as good as last year 's experience. The Creme brulee was good as was the service.

    It’s just ok, my wife ordered a ribeye burger and it was waaaaaay overcooked, I had crab cakes and they were good. We’ve been here several times and it’s always the same. It’s a nice place but the food is just ok, and we know that going in so I’m not complaining but being honest.

    It was a special occasion the reason of our visit and it did not disappoint. It was my wife's birthday and she loved it. You can't go wrong with ordering any of their steaks. The margarita flight was great also. It was our first time visiting and we will definitely return.
