The walleye fingers were very good, as well as the jalepeno aioli that came with it. I ate late, and even if I were there for only a drink and appetizer, it was a bit dark.

We stopped in here while travelling. We had eaten there before so we knew we were in for good food. We were. They have a delicious menu that your sure to find something you will like. Try the Chicken Wild Rice soup, I loved it with the Rueben sandwich that I had. Great place and just off the freeway.

Sunday brunch is decent but lacking a good salad bar. Good crepe and ommelote bar. Two family members had burritos and were very disappointed because it was not Mexican in any stroke of the imagination. Best to take that off the menu and stick to American fare. The server was very attentive and helpful. However, it seemed like this restaurant... More

The food was terrible, absolutely terrible. The french onion soup had no taste, beef tenderloin tips were tough. It was just terrible. I will never stay or eat here again.

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

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!

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.
