Uninspired

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... read more

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.

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). I appreciate your comments on everything and hope you'll give us another change so you... More

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.

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.

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
