This place gets better every time I go. Whether with family, clients or "guys" night, the food never disappoints and only could be (if possibly) overshadowed by the service lead by the best dirty martini maker in the 5 boros, Tara. You need anything, and I really mean ANYTHING, just ask. Highly recommend this to anyone in the area....I take... More

I wanted to like this place, and the food is tasty but as bit pricy. My beef (pun intended) had to do with a special they were running the night we went. The waitress, who couldn't be more friendly, mentioned lollipop lamb chops as an appetizer, four of them over a bed of green beans. This sounded right up my... More

dizdm, Manager at Ruddy & Dean, responded to this review

so the waitress who was friendly and tried to put a smile on your face could"t put the dish down before you mentioned that it should be 4 lamb chops . When she tried to explain the one of the bones snapped off you said it didn't look like a double lamb chop. I don't understand what you mean by... More

Fine aged steaks, a truly delicious porterhouse - and one of the most delicious burgers on Staten Island because it's made with prime beef!

My husband and I had reservations at Ruddys and Deans before the show. My husband ordered the New York Strip and I had the filet mignon. My husbands steak was very nervy. Mine was nothing special. We had the mashed potatoes which were cold. If we ever go there again we will try the burger, I don't think they are... More

We've visited here a couple of times and always enjoyed the laid back atmosphere and advice on trying new drinks. We decided it would be rude not to try one of the fantastic steaks on offer so traveled over on the ferry, which runs all night, and had a great conversation with Tom the barman who explained the menu brilliantly...

Also close to the old theatre for shows on the island. All within walking distance to the ferry. It feels like this place has been there a long time. Good thing. Right across from the water.

Located across the street from the Staten Island ferry this steakhouse has a reputation for great steaks. We came in between lunch & dinner and decided on lunch. My first impression was a clean welcoming place, you walk past the bar and there's booths on the side ( i luv booths). We started with a delicious onion soup & equally... More

Close to the St.George Ferry, on Bay Street you can find Ruddy and Dean's. Stop by for lunch or dinner. If it's available, have the bone-in February filet.

We came to Ruddy and Deans for a drink before returning to Manhattan on the ferry. We let the host know upon arrival that we didn't need menus, just a beer. We proceeded to sit at the bar while two employees chatted at one end and two other wait staff stood by and received absolutely no attention. After 15 minutes,... More
