Ruddy & Dean is a small steakhouse located about a half block from the Staten Island Ferry Terminal. It is located on Richmond Terrace road (the same road that the Ferry Terminal is on). It is also located at the north end of Staten Island facing the Bay. There is a rooftop terrace but we did not go up there... More

We decided to go to a steak house while in New York. We took the Staten island ferry over which is free. The restaurant had our table ready for us. The steak was amazing. The staff were lovely. The restaurant had a lovely feel as you could tell they were locals. Will definitely be returning next year.

Okay, it's not inexpensive, but if you went to Brooklyn or Manhattan for the same entrée, the bill would be much, much higher. Not only is this place just a block from the free ferry to Staten Isle, but the choices of side-dishes, like spinach and potatoes, are numerous and delicious.

We went to Ruddy and Deans on a Monday night for my husbands birthday. We had such an incredible meal! We started off with the thick cut bacon over German potato salad and the best French onion soup! I love French onion soup and I have it almost everywhere I go so trust me it was the best. We also... More

Walkable from the ferry. Make sure you check out the wonderful painted mural of the NYC skyline and boroughs on the interior wall around the restaurant. Beautiful, detailedl art. Delicious food. Terrific service. Great aged steak that you can see for yourself in a display case up front. Pulled pork sandwich also good.

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 garlic mashed potatoes and perfectly prepared string... 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.
