I had the Thursday whole lobster special. The lobster was cooked perfectly; not rubbery. Green beans were cooked just past al dente; firm but not crunchy, bright green in color.
The bread seemed different from before. I like sourdough and it just tasted like regular French bread. It was served warm.

This was my first visit. I’ve heard about Rudy’s for years but never seemed to make it there. Thankful I finally did! It was great and I plan to return.

Server was very attentive to other guests but seemed as though she was doing the bare minimum for our table.

outstanding in very way. While it looks like a dive or strip joint from the outside. Once you step in it is definitely a fine dining experience.

Food & service excellent. Bar, questionable. My husband ordered CC Rocks. His drink came looking weak & with a wedge of lime! Never do that. He sent it back because it tasted wrong. Next one was just plain watered. He refused it. Either the whiskey was watered down in bottle or they are using very watery ice. Not good when serving straight liqour.

Good social distancing inside due to Covid-19. Even with half of the tables removed, it was still a rather loud dinner. Our waitress agreed with us that there was one obnoxious loud talking man that almost ruined our dinner.

Food is very generous, but a little pricey, our bottle of wine and two meals with 15% tip put our cost at $100.00. We can afford it - and we will go again. I had the cioppino seafood dish and brought home enough crab legs for making two crab omelets two
days later. And the cioppino was awesome.

Haven't been there in years but sure will be going back! The only thing better than the new interior and our waitress were the calamari strips!!

Rudy's reminds me of dining experiences on the wharf of San Francisco...Cozy, warm lighting, and a scent of seafood lingering in the air. We love the Prime Rib sandwich and the Prime Rib...watch out for the horseradish sauce. It will sneak up on you, but sooo good. The serve was a little slow, but it was worth the wait. Enjoy

Whether you like Surf n Turf, just Turf, or just Surf, Rudy's Hideaway is the place to go! Service, food, drinks, atmosphere, social distancing... everything was excellent! The final tab was a little on the high side, but not unexpectedly! I highly recommend Rudy's to anyone looking for a great meal & a good time!

The food and service at Rudy's was very good overall we had a nice evening. The night would have been better if we were able to use our OpenTable reward card. The server told me that they were not aware of OpenTable rewards. When I spoke with the manager he said that he had never heard or seen anything about rewards from OpenTable.
Since I made the reservation on OpenTable by clicking the icon stating that I was using the reward I was disappointed with the results.
Of course I did not hear back from OpenTable so I don't have any idea why there was confusion at the restaurant. Either the restaurant didn't want to honor the reward card or OpenTable is not doing a very good job of communicating with their member restaurants.

Our first choice was Scott's Seafood who don't take reservations. Since it was a special evening we thought it best to make a back up reservation with Rudy's. We were so happy the wait for Scott's was 45 minutes....we were hungry and didn't want to wait. We zipped over to our 2nd choice and it turned out just GREAT. They sat us in the Captain's Room which is special and everything was perfect. Service was great, the food was delicious...just can't say how much we enjoy dining there.

The food here is absolutely great. The service seems to lack every time I come here. I realize they are dealing with inside and outside seating now but we we were not attended to hardly at all. Had to wait a very long time for refills on soft drinks, rolls.

Overall I still really like this place but I just wish the service could match the quality of the food.

Our entrees were amazing (lobster ravioli and shrimp scampi). Fanciest little side salad came before. Highly recommend the lobster potstickers. Service was impeccable. It doesn't look like much from the street but this place is fabulous. Can't wait to go back!

When we were here in late June we were very disappointed in Rudy's Covid adherence. Not so this time-everything was up to standard or better.

The prime rib was outstanding!

We've loved Rudy's for years and are always happy to dine there. This was our first outdoor experience. The food was excellent, but we all found the chairs to be very hard and uncomfortable. If outdoor dining continues maybe they could invest in some more comfortable seating.
