Great Food Steps from the Staten Island Ferry Terminal

Just across the street from the ferry terminal, on the Staten Island side, is the best reason to get off the boat. Great food, friendly service and a superbly curated beer list make Ruddy and Dean worth the trip from Manhattan. My favorite dish is the braised short ribs. Served with creamy smooth... read more

In every aspect this restaurant exceeds expectations! The view of the Manhattan skyline, the warmth of its staff, and most importantly the quality and quantity of its amazing seafood were so far above our expectations, that it turned out to be a highlight of a great weekend get-away.

In the middle of a thunderstorm we arrived on Stanten Island looking for a late breakfast or brunch. A couple of hundred yards from the ferry we stumbled in. A bit wet and glad to be inside. The welcome was warm and service friendly. We had the sandwiches and fries and couldn't ask for much more. Oh the chocolate pudding... More

My husband and I love to treat ourselves to a good steak and a bottle of wine. We have tried all the major steakhouses including Ruth Chris, Peter Lugers etc. and they do not compare to the steaks at Ruddy and Deans. The dried aged steaks are always cooked to perfection. They also include the side dishes as opposed to... More

Twice at Ruddy & Dean last month. Both times the steaks were outstanding....better than we have ever had at much more pricey and famous steak house restaurants. We compare it as much better than our local "icon" Bern's Steakhouse in Tampa, FL. The meat was absolutely great. The sides were excellent. The atmosphere was good, and unpretentious. The service was... More

If your wanting to catch the ferry to Staten Island and get a meal when you get there - Ruddy & Dean are only a 5 minute walk once you get off the ferry. Great American food and awesome service - such friendly staff, we had a great, memorable experience! Shira & Ross (Traveling from Sydney, Australia)

Top quality steaks are the fare at Ruddy & Dean. Comparible to steak houses in Manhattan. Price is somewhat expensive, but includes side dishes. Dine on the terrace and get a great view of the NYC skyline.
