I have been here twice now, once for lunch and once for brunch and both times were fabulous! The menu is quite unique, the dishes were wonderful and our servers were most accommodating. Very easy to find and there is plenty of parking. Can’t wait to go back!

This is a nice down home eatery. The food is ample and tasty. I was a little disappointed with the Reuben. It missed the Russian dressing and sauerkraut. That said, it is still one of my favorite restaurants. Great service and attentive staff.

We went for Lunch on a Sunday. While they did have a brunch menu 2 of us ordered from the standard menu. The other ordered from the brunch menu. The House smoked pastrami was out of this world. The others in the party had the BLT and the Corned Beef Hash. Everyone raved about their meals. As a local it is always nice to go places that are not touristy. Service was outstanding.

I was not impressed. My wife and shared appetizers instead of entrees.
The poutine was too dry, it needed much more gravy/sauce.
The empanadas were a bit crunchy.
Seems overpriced.
The service was mediocre.

Our visit there was mid afternoon so they were not busy at all. Great selection for everyone to choose from including an eleven year old. A tad more than I thought for our selections but the food was phenomenal. We ordered a Reuben sandwich, shrimp burger, the special of the day..... grilled cheese hamburger, bowl of Mac n cheese, poutine and a fish sandwich. All except the Mac n cheese came with a side. 2 milkshakes 2 sodas and a water. $157 before tip. On vacation so I didn’t care and maybe I don’t eat out enough to realize the cost. Maybe that’s reasonable? No judgement...... food was awesome!

Went for brunch after many positive recommendations, but was disappointed. We got two rounds of dirty silverware. The food was tasty (I very much enjoyed the cornbeef hash), but one member of my party complained that the side of bacon was covered in syrup or honey or something sweet that was not on the menu and he did not enjoy. The major complaint was that the coffee was unbearably undrinkable. I'm a five-cup-of-coffee-a-day drink-coffee-anywhere-you-can-get-it (everywhere from gas stations to boutique coffee shops) kinda person and this was the worst cup of coffee I've ever had. Bar none. The server was nice, although seemed frustrated when we asked for silverware. Atmosphere was good. Brunch cocktails were very good. That coffee though....

Sat in the back by the kitchen for the first tine and it was busy and loud from the music. It was burger night and the burgers were excellent although we waited and as we found out when they brought us our food that the first tine around the burgers were not cooked to the right temperature. No matter it was all good. Tried having the sage gravy on the fries and that was yum!

Rutledge Cab is an unpretentious neighborhood bar and grill that never disappoints. Excellent burgers, sandwiches, and salads accompanied by friendly and efficient service. One member of our group was in a wheelchair, and this need was met with an immediate and smoothly executed solution. Even though the restaurant was quite busy, our server was attentive and available.

Great spot for a business lunch. The booths provide space for focused discussion. The menu has been culled to key offerings. Unfortunately the famed skewers are no longer a lunch menu item.

Food was really good and our service was good. We asked to sit in the main dining room in a booth because the side porch area was so loud and it was freezing. The hostess said the booths were all full. There were at least 4 booths open the entire time we were there. The noise level was horrible where we sat and it was so cold that we it was impossible to enjoy our dinner.

I took my mom out to dinner as she had never been. We both had the fish tacos and I thought they were great. They were a little too spicy for her so I think there should be something on the menu indicating that they’re spicy.
