Went for our anniversary during the week. Wasn't busy and service was really good. We started with the $2 bread basket - which really should be free with the price of meals but not complaining! Ordered cocktails, not a fan of no prices on the...More

What else do I really need to say? Well, besides the service is amazing! Grab your favorite cut of beef, add some sauce, or don't. Some delicious side dishes to share and a bottle of wine. That's how you spend a Friday night!

Our kids gave us a gift card and we used it at Judson's. Very easy to make a reservation. We dined at 6pm and it was nice and quiet. We each had one of the evening specials - ahi tuna and a steak. The tuna...More

My family came to Grand Rapids to visit, and we thought we would give Judson's a try for a Saturday night out. Sadly, we will not return. The food was mediocre at best. Not the worst I've had at a restaurant but no where near...More

Dined here for the first time for a birthday. My husband was very happy with his steak. I had salmon and it was amazing! Also had the duck as an appetizer and enjoyed it. "Bread plate" that they bring out is a little odd but...More

We love going here when we are in Grand Rapids. The bacon wrapped filet was amazing and we love the family style sides to share!

Definitely top end pricing, but this is top end food. Had the stuffed Filet Mignon, Broussel Sprouts and a Cesar Salad ... each was uniquely done and very flavorful. A top end steak house and worth it.

Dinner at Judson's steakhouse was a pleasant surprise! Good wine selection, attentive staff (Dante rocks), and exquisite food. We had the beef tenderloin steaks and Brussel sprouts. The steak was perfectly cooked and tender. The brussel sprouts were to die for! I will visit again!

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...More
