My mom and I went here for dinner as one of their signature steaks (a filet stuffed with boursin cheese and wrapped in bacon) is her favorite. We dined on a Wednesday night, so the restaurant was not very busy, but unfortunately our waiter was not very attentive - several times she had to wait quite a while for her... More

Judson's is a good steakhouse option if you are not looking for extremely expensive but better than chain restaurants. The atmosphere is modern and cozy. A nice place to go on a date or have dinner with friends. The service has always been good, as well as the food.

We had a table of 10, and everybody sampled something different on the menu, from steaks to pork chops to salmon. Everyone enjoyed their meal, and nobody had any complaints about the preparation,. I was impressed with the preparation of the salmon; it was done perfectly!

We very much enjoyed our first meal at Judson's Steakhouse. My husband chose to eat here for his birthday. We were warmly greeted and immediately taken to our table. Trisha, our waitstaff, was extremely helpful and friendly. We both selected a steak, which was on a special menu for the evening. Unlike the rest of the items listed, our food... More

We went there for our anniversary. I ordere off the menu and got the Wagu beef, which is similar to Kobe beef. $55 but it was a special occasion. Plenty of other bars, shows in the building as well.

Grand Rapids is now blessed with so many great places, including steak houses of note. But Judson's is still competitive. My wife, son, and I dined here on a Saturday night after a busy week. Service was friendly, cocktails excellent. The bruschetta starter was very good with mushrooms and leeks. Oysters were fresh and vibrant. All of our steaks were... More

Had a business dinner while in Grand Rapids. Food was okay, not outstanding as one would expect for these prices. One of us had steak, the other fish, shared a baked potato and brussel sprouts (guest comment was charred, not green). Good size portions. Wine list had interesting choices, IMO overpriced with few value options. Passed on dessert.

Each time I've eaten at Judson's I think it just can't get any better and then the next time - it does! Every single bite has been perfectly prepared and delicious. We tried more of the sides this time in family portion sizes which was great. Don't miss the truffle scalloped potatoes or the brussels sprouts. Not sure what more... More

The food is always amazing, you can really tell they get good, quality steak from local farms. Additionally, the staff is friendly and gets to know you by name. Judson's is my husband and my favorite place to have a date night, birthday, or any other celebration.
