We love going to Rudy's. My Mother and I always ordered their Walleye dinner which was excellent. My husband and I typically order their Supreme Pizza and love it. There was one occasion that it wasn't up to their standard and they remade it. We've also taken our family to Rudy's for their Pasta... read more

Brittany made my dinner experience great. She made suggestions that were spot on and she is extremely attentive. As a traveler she is one of the best I have seen. You can tell she enjoys her job and is very good at it. Thanks Brittany you made my day!

Awesome Almond Crusted Walleye! The popovers were very good along with a flavored butter. Our server was very attentive. It was a pleasant experience and we all left very satisfied. The atmosphere was very nice also. 😎

Had an excellent walleye platter, (almond crusted) served along with quinoa and green beans. We met my sister and her husband there, and they were well pleased too. Great service! The pleasant surprise was popovers served prior to meal!

Great food and great service, plus a very good price and value. For a full service steak house, we were surprised by the range of items offered on the menu We'll stop there again.

There just didn't seem to be anything really up to date on the menu. All the dinners came with teriyaki green beans. Really? That seems very 90s. How about adding something more trendy for sides? Nachos at least have real cheese but nothing fancy there, either, and a heap of unadorned chips underneath. I'd go somewhere else

Thank you for your review, JCJake. I'm sorry to see you think our menu is uninspired and not up-to-date. We do in fact update our menu seasonally to add new dishes and try new things (we just recently added our Signature Sweet & Sassy Bacon).

We stopped here while we stayed the weekend in Alexandria. The food was good. We ordered an appetizer which we didn't need to because our meals alone were too much to eat. The portions were pretty big. The staff was very friendly, but the service wasn't great. We waited forever to get our pops refilled. Which is a big deal... More

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. My eyes are 50 years old, and I used My flaslight app to see the menu. Great decor, good service. Thanks foa a nice... More

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.
