Great food, great service, gracious setting. Way to go Judson's.
Location, ambience, and service were quite good. The food was average and given the price, not a great value.
Although the canned music was rather loud, Judsons remains our favorite restaurant in Grand Rapids. Waiter Jake did an awesome job and food was outstanding. We'll be back.
We were there for a birthday and to see our grandson Spencer who works in the kitchen. We especially liked the appetizer of crostini with mushrooms and onion. Also, we thought the staff was very accommodating.
Delightful staff and the best meal I had in the city! Had the prime rib special, & if I wasn't stuffed, I would have ordered another, as it tasted that good!
Steaks were perfect. The sides were really great. The cocktails were very nice. Fairly low key place but the food was very good. Overall I would go back as a very reliable and excellent place to eat. Wine selection was ok but not great. Parking is always a challenge in Grand Rapids and I wish they comped the parking but it is what it is
It was a Thursday night about 6:30 and about a third of the tables were full. The food was very good, certainly above average but not necessarily any "wow" moments. The major issue was the incredibly slow service. Our waiter was nice and pleasant but everything took forever. It appeared to me that the restaurant was short-staffed for waiters/waitresses this evening. I understand that this happens from time-to-time and if that was the case, I would have been impressed if the waiter had just fessed up at the beginning of the evening, acknowledging that service time would be slow. I may not like it but i can respect the situation. Instead, nothing was said so now the incredibly slow service comes as 'normal'. And if this is the norm for Judson's, then I won't be back for awhile. There are far too many other great restaurants in GR.
Poor service this time. Never received salad until after entree was delivered. Had to ask. Never received bread until after entree, then salad was delivered. Had to ask. Rib eye was $45 and thinly cut. I've had better meals there over several years.
We went there on a Wednesday night and everything was great. We both had a half of wedge salad which we agreed was the equal to or competed with the best we have ever had! Our steaks were also some of the best Grand Rapids has to offer.
Our waitress Gabby was excellent and paced the meal perfectly. We totally enjoyed the evening and will be back soon.
Food was good but very pricey. Probably will not go back.
It had been sometime since we were last at Judson's. We were seated promptly but that was the end of quality service. Took waitress 15 minutes to come to our table. Drinks ordered and 10 minute wait. Food ordered and long wait and then wrong dinner order was served. Food was good but service ruined the overall experience.
The food was good. Not great. I was very unhappy with our server. He started out okay, but by the end was fairly rude for no good reason based on anything we said or did.
The food was excellent. Always good. The service though.... our waiter was struggling. He had 4 tables and seemed to be flustered. We waited much longer than I would have expected. Very slow. That was a first for us at Judson’s as we’ve always had excellent service there.
My husband and I celebrated a birthday dinner here and enjoyed everything --- great food, friendly service, just the right ambiance for a relaxing evening out.
Our waiter, Colin R, made our experience outstanding. He listened, recommended and was right about what to order. The food was exceptional. The restaurant was elegant with a welcoming atmosphere.
Very much enjoyed our dining experience.
Food was great. The server was very friendly but seemed like he had too many tables and felt like he was running behind. Didn't seem like his fault he was doing his best, just seemed like the only waiter in a large area. Food was great, I highly recommend.
Server was very slow
We made reservations and when we arrived, we were told that we would have to wait 10-15 minutes. A few minutes later we were seated because a group who got seated right away (without reservations), got up and left. When I make reservations I expect to be seated at the reservation time
We really enjoyed the service and the atmosphere. It was my birthday and we truly enjoyed our time there. We enjoyed lobster and steak, and shared the Truffle Au Gratin Dauphine Potatoes. The wine list was lovely, and we enjoyed looking at it and choosing our wines, as well. We would highly recommend Judson's Steakhouse.
My husband and I had the most delicious meals! Excellent steak, and the wild salmon was out of this world! It was a wonderful evening, and a great place to celebrate our 45th Anniversary. Service was very good, even though it was a busy evening, and our waitress couldn't have been more pleasant and efficient. Just an all-around great experience! (We were first-timers!) Definitely an A+ experience!!
Took a bit to be seated because hostess was no where to be found. Two employees walked right by without saying a word.
We chose this restaurant out of convenience to 20Monroe Live. It is good for that aspect as there is an entry to the venue on the 2nd floor of the building and the staff was ver cognizant of the time frame we were in. The servers were very friendly and helpful. However when it came to the food, presentation was very nice but quality could be improved.
First time there, and nothing that great about it that makes us want to go back. From the moment we walked in, there was nobody there to greet us and it took a couple minutes for anyone to even acknowledge we were there. Service was quite slow, the restaurant was not even close to being full and the prices were high for the small portions you receive. They are known for their steak and mine wasn't that great.. overcooked and no flavor. Have had better from everyday chain restaurants.
Celebrated a birthday and had a great experience with an awesome waiter.
The night we went, the dining area was a bit smelly, and the service was very slow - it took 40min to get our order delivered.
Not sure what happened with Judson’s. In the past service was great, dinners were excellent, and there were more choices on the menu.
They were out of drinks specials, and entrees Service was at a snails pace.
Just seems like a forgotten establishment. Wouldn’t recommend. Too many new places to check out in downtown GR
Food was great but ambiance isn’t too quiet.
Great meal again.
Wedge Salad, Signature Bacon Wrapped Boursin Stuffed Filet, Brussel Sprouts and Truffle Au Gratin Dauphine Potatoes can't be beat.
Our server, Mackenzie, also did a great job!
This place charges the same as a top tier steak houses but it's not.
Party of 4. Excellent service by our server Brock. Food and drinks were very good. Oysters, Crab Cakes, Salad, New York strip, Delmonico, Lobster Mac and cheese, Yukon mashed, Asparagus, Manhattans, Mule, Sangria - Everything was spot on. Left full and had leftovers.
Great food and great wine. Server was friendly and did a great job!
Excellent Food and Service. We really enjoy coming here for dinner.
We had a 6pm reservation on a Thursday night, and were seated right away. All the staff were very attentive. They were running $20 prime rib special and it was A LOT of food. Definitely recommend this restaurant for dinner!
25 mins before any food was served to us .
2 hour supper is outrageous .
We were a party of six and everybody’s steaks were done perfectly...also the three dozen oysters we had were great!
Everything was outstanding! Service, food and value. This was our 6th time there
We were seated in an area with a breeze. We moved to another area and it was too lit. Martini was tasty.
Everything I've ever had there is really good, but the steaks are very good. I've never had a bad cut.
We went to Judson's for our Anniversary on a Monday, so it was really empty. Didn't matter, because everything was great! Our waiter, Tim, was very helpful in helping us decided what we would want to eat (but let's face it, if you come to Judson's, you're likely getting a steak of some kind). I've been once before, and I was dreaming about their garlic mushrooms. We got them again, and they did not disappoint. We would probably go a lot more often if 1)We didn't have a young child and 2)If it wasn't so expensive. But it's great if you want to celebrate something.
Absolutely loved our meal. Our waiter knew a great detail of the wines featured, and even gave us reccomendations and samples to test our pallet. We ordered the tomahawk steak with the lobster tail. I don’t think I will ever eat anything better in my life. I wish I took the bone home with me and put it on my trophy mantle. The vaneltines deal they had for the meal made the overall dinner even better!
