We have been patron of Rudy's ever since we discovered them 20 years ago. They have fresh lobster, live on premises and their prices are reasonable. The even have special during the week with whole lobster dinner at less than $20 per person including, salad and veges. Service is excellent and reservations make the whole process seamless. We have had... More

When we told friends that we were going to be in this area, they said that we had to go to Rudy's. Were we ever glad that we did. This place has been around for over 40 years and they know what they are doing. Everything was fantastic from the crab cakes and calamari for appetizers right through the desserts... More

This is a special go to place. When I fancy a good steak, Prime Rib or Lobster it's Rudy's for me! The service is always excellent and they have a full bar. They have a nice front area which is different from the back. The wall art is cool.

We eat out a lot and do so frequently with another couple. We select this place on a whim. Both men in our party said the prime rib, filet and lobster were the best they ever had eaten. Both are in their 70's. I had the seafood salad which was fully loaded with crab, prawns, shrimp, avocado, black olives.

Fabulous, made reservation with open table and was on time and in the right place. Thursday is Lobster night, but don't tell anyone because I like not having to wait for mine. Where can you get a full lobster, bake potato and a great service for $20.00? Right off of hwy 50, it's a little drive from Roseville but quite... More

Enjoyed the retro feel of of a fine dining experience with low indirect lighting and comfortable setting. The waitress was on her game with tons of personality. Highly recommend the sea dishes for dinner.

Don't skip by Rudy's Hideaway due to plain exterior, there is a true hideaway inside. You will experience a nice atmosphere and the food has been consistently good. I always go for the lobster but I hear prime rib is also very good. The wait staff is friendly and attentive. Give Rudy's a try, you won't be disappointed.

Rudy's is an institution specializing in Lobster and steak. The food is good. We had one very bad experience where they did not honor our reservation and were stuck with a 90 minute wait. But that happened only once.

My husband and I found this place accidentally as we were driving in the area and were hungry. We had passed Rudy's on the way to an appointment and asked there whether the restaurant was good. They told us "Absolutely!", so we tried it. I had the Golden Fried Prawns with French Fries and Coleslaw. My husband had the Lobster... More
