On a short trip to NYC we decided to take the free ferry ride to Staten Island, simply to get a look at the iconic SoL - it was pretty statuesque but we were too far away to really get too much of a view. Docking in Staten Island, we wanted a beer and a sandwich and asked a policeman... More

This restaurant is conveniently located across from the staten Island Ferry and the Staten Island Yankees stadium. When you walk in you are immediately drawn to the dry age steaks in a case across from the bar. The bartender's are friendly and very knowledgeable about their extensive beer and wine list we were seated and our waiter was just as... More

The free trip on the Staten Island ferry is a must for many visitors to NYC, but if you just walk a few blocks from the terminal, you'll find this restaurant just up the hill. They dry age their steaks, and they are great. Sides are OK, and in the past, the wine list by the glass has been sparse,... More

Fabulous steaks- they do serve other food, but steak is definitely the star. I had a nice salad to start, and my brother loved the lollipop lamb chop appetizer. Quiet atmosphere, good service, nice dessert. Meat this good doesn't need fancy sauces so it's great if you like your food straightforward (like I do!) It's one of those few places... More

We stumbled upon Ruddy and Dean after wondering off the Staten Island Ferry. We didn't do our homework yet found this restaurant to be a wonderful night. The atmosphere was great as it was not noisy, service was awesome from our waitress, Laura, the food was sensational and the view from outside was of a Manhattan sunset. So we couldn't... More

We were a small wedding party of 12 people. We had drinks at the bar and then went upstairs to the outdoor deck. Great view , great service! Steaks prepared exactly to order. Sides, raw clams and oysters were all perfect. I do believe we were charged a $5 per person sharing charge, but all in all, it was a... More

Went here with a friend on a Wednesday evening and we pretty much had the place to ourselves. Friendly welcome, and a great menu selection. We had some perfectly cooked tuna and calamari to start, and then each had a delicious steak for mains. Neither of us had any complaint (even about how the steak was cooked, which was spot... More

We have been here 3 times now and each time it is an enjoyable experience. The place is well presented, restrooms are clean and, yes there are two, one for males and one for females. We have only been at lunch time so not sure what it is like at other times but it was fairly quiet. The service was... More

Reading the rave reviews made me thinking. So one fine evening we ventured out to Ruddy and Dean. Everything seemed to be fine, but something kept on bothering me. Onion Soup was not that great at all. Scallops were above par. Caesar salad was good. But yet again, something was missing. Steak was seared just right, but there were no... More
