Rudy’s is an all time favorite restaurant. It’s been there a long time and the menu, meals and service never fail to please. It lives up to the reputation of being a neighborhood dining favorite, sure to please the palate and the Happy Hour cocktails are a good deal.

Very familiar with restaurant. Would be a perfect place to bring 15 out of the 200 family members at a time for a wondetful different dining experience. Food is very very good! Oh, by the way there was gentlemen sitting across from our table who looked a lot like Spencer Tracy and that gave the experience an Turner Classic Movie feel. LOL!! Loved it.

We went to Rudy's to celebrate my boyfriend's birthday. We waited until Thursday for the special, but they were all sold out. Someone at the bar told us they always run out on Thursdays. This was disappointing :(

Reese was AWESOME as our waitress. She really knew the menu, and was very personable and efficient. We really enjoyed her personality! Michael was also very helpful with my reservation with my friend visiting from San Antonio, and with menu information. Food and ambiance were both perfect! Keep up the great work!!

Reservations were right on time, food was delicious, service was excellent, and complimentary birthday dessert was great! Cost is justified by portion sizes and quality.

Had a great time with our Son and his Wife. The food was fantastic as well as our server. It was a little loud, BUT the meal and the surroundings made it all worth it. Great time.

I have dined many times at Rudy's and generally enjoy the food and Ambiance. The food this time was dry and over-cooked. If the food was better our overall score would be higher.

The food was excellent, it was my son's birthday and he loves lobster so we got him a 3 lb whole lobster. It was amazing. Also it happened to be Tuesday night and the rest of us had the Prime Rib special, a generous cut, well seasoned, cooked to perfection!

My wife and I have been going to Rudy's from Lincoln, CA for 11 years. We go there 10 times a year. We love main lobster and all the food. Great value including all the fixins. The drinks are extra large. We have brought many friends and NOW it is their favorite destination.

Any time we want to celebrate something or just get the urge, it is a great place.

Rudy’s is the kind of place that brings us back to our younger years. The wait staff have been there for years. The food is what we would get when we went out for a special meal. It’s actually hard to find good steak and lobster that is perfectly prepared without being over charged. It’s a gem!

We greatly enjoyed our meal at Rubys. Mike, our server, was excellent and made our dining experience very enjoyable. We had the lobster bisque and it was great. It riveled bisquecwe had on our recent trip to Maine. We had the seafood platter and stuffed salmon for dinner. They were also very good. The drinks we had were good and had generous portion. I highly recommend the LaCrema chardonny if you are having seafood. We also enjoyed all the metal art work by Tomas as it gave the restaurant a nice ambiance. We definately will return on our next visit to the Rancho area.

Slightly disappointed in the purchase if the 1.5 Lb live Maine Lobster. Turns out that is the gross weight of the live lobster and the actual amount of edidable lobster was rather a small amount for the $$$.

We enjoyed a delightful dinner to celebrate your son's 50th birthday. Food was great--calamari was "perfectly" cooked. Your clam chowder is so good, we always take a quart home. My son enjoyed the tasty dessert too. It's certainly worth the drive from Roseville. We'll be back!
