Pasta night!

Wednesday nights they have a pasta bar in which you pick out your own ingredients and a very nice chef cooks it up right in front of you as you watch. It's a great selection and the end result is fabulous. A special treat that I almost wish was available more than one night a week!

My husband, daughter and I dined here on Valentine's Day evening and it was wonderful. We had the walleye, pork chop and chopped salad, and everyone was so pleased. I ordered the walleye blackened and it was perfectly cooked, as was the chop. And the Chopped Salad was amazing. And of course there were popovers!! In the end...we could not... More

We've dined at Rudy's a couple times over the last few months and didn't have very good food. For the first dining experience, all members in our group ordered a soup of some flavor and all were cold. This was after waiting for an extended period of time for the food to arrive. The server / manager tried making it... More

Somewhat limited menu and slightly higher prices than what we are accustomed to in Alexandria however the food quality has always been excellent. By far, our favorite reason for dining here is the Wednesday pasta made to order!

I eat regularly at Rudy's when staying at the Holiday inn, Breakfast is very good, dinners are also good, selection covers many different tastes. The bar service is good, a good place to eat and wind down. Clean and well kept, service has been attentive and efficient.

We all got sandwiches and for the most part they were good. I got the Italian sub. For me it was too bready and had too much marinara(it would... More

We were at a wedding at the Barn and the Rudy's staff did the food and the serving. I would have to say that food was excellent and some of the best wedding food I have ever had. Hats off to the staff very nicely done!

Usually restaurant hotels are not know for food but this is exception. Great lunch specials with interesting combinations of food, staff seem to enjoy working and are attentive and fun. Beers and wine specials are a treat. Nice atmosphere, booths, tables and outdoor seating. I have always been greeted as I enter.
