We ate here following our son's college graduation. We were able to have a private room in "the BOB" and order off the Judson's menu. Our server Nicole was fabulous and attended to our needs. The food was great - not cheap - but we expected it! Prime Rib was delicious.

Steve was our waiter and he was totally professional and friendly. His recommendations were on target; absolutely delicious prime rib and steak. He treated us nicely, right down to free dessert on him for our "birthday boy."

Started with shrimp cocktail and crab cakes. We both had their 10oz filet and the steaks were very good. I asked if they could grill the asparagus rather than steam it and they did it perfectly. Love the decor and our server was very helpful.

Celebrated our anniversary here and it was great. Both of our steaks were done exactly the way we asked for them. I had a smoked fliet of beef which was had great taste; my wife had the delmonico and despite the fact delmonicos can have a lot of fat, this cut had great marbling and taste but with very little...

Celebrated a special occasion with family members there recently and everyone enjoyed their meals. We had the cold seafood appetizer and steaks. Everything was delicious. Four of us shared one piece of the chocolate cake for dessert and there was plenty for everyone!

I was part of a party of 12 that came to dinner at Judson's during the recent insurance convention. The restaurant presented itself as a top of the line steak house with aged steaks, but reality is that the steaks were only mediocre as were the wine selections and side dishes. It took us about three tries to find a... More

On a recent visit to Grand Rapids, Michigan we stayed at the Marriott down town. Because it was extremely cold we didn't feel like walking too far. Right across the street there was a three story building called ' The Bob' ( short for big old building). So we went to a restaurant located inside the building: Hudson's Streak House.... More

The last couple of times we have been here, we just eat at the bar and watch the game before heading upstairs for live music. The steaks here are terrific. The bartender is not pretentious (nice for steakhouse) and the wine is wonderful.
