I chose Rudy’s for my birthday dinner date with my husband, and had the lobster. It was delicious and my husband had the prime rib and he loved it. We were greeted by very pleasant and polite hostess and our waiter was very attentive and professional. We thoroughly enjoyed our evening and are looking forward to our next visit to Rudy’s!

I started going to Rudy's with my parents back in the 70s. The food is outstanding, the people are great, and the atmosphere is welcoming. I do miss the "live" music as it was always fun to come for dinner and stay for drinks and dancing.

I wish there had been a bit more lobster in my prime rib and lobster surf and turf but otherwise everything was pure excellence.

Our table was ready upon arrival. Our server was excellent throughout our whole stay. The food was excellent though the crab legs amount was less than expected given the price and previous visits to the restaurant. We only received one crab leg with filet steak. We always enjoy celebrating special occasions with Rudy's and as this was our 40th wedding anniversary our server comped us a chocolate mousse dessert which also was excellent. We were in and out within 60 minutes and did not feel rushed.

Food and service was amazing as always. My definite go to place whenever meeting with friends and out of town guest. 2 of the ladies wanted to share the Seafood Salad and Lobster Ravioli's and the kitchen split both dishes and each were served individual orders of each, now that is service!! I had the lobster roll, with lots of lobster (not lobster salad) it was delicious!!

Did not disappoint. Upon arrival for our 7:30 p.m. reservations, we were seated promptly
We were immediately welcomed by our waiter whom took our drink orders. We were not rushed, nor forgotten. Very attentive and polite. Our dinner was flavorful and the helpings were plenty. Will be back soon. Such an enjoyable Good Friday feast.

My husband and I went to Rudy's on a Friday night and really enjoyed sitting in a restaurant again! We shared calamari and I had prime rib for dinner. My husband had Filet Bernaise and we shared a lobster tail. Everything was very good, and we had plenty of leftovers. The food is always good at Rudy's and I highly recommend it!

outstanding service!!! most of the dishes were yummy- the calamari was very tough and chewey.

rudy’s is well known for its seafood- was yummy- needs a little infusion of updating the interior.

Service alittle slow but overall Rudy's is a wonderful restaurant. The slowness perhaps because Rudy's is just getting back up and running after Covid shut down.

Amanda was a fantastic server. I often dine by myself, and she recognized that. She didn’t rush me or visit the table too much. Treated the solo diner just like she would a table of eight. As always, the food was great.

We went to Rudy’s for the first time 5 years ago when we moved here. A local had recommended and we’ve been going ever since. Whether it’s appetizers after work, out with friends or a night for two, the food and service is always amazing.
