We decided to join friends for dinner at this nice establishment. The waitress was very friendly & funny. She was a pleasure and very attentive. Our bread and crackers with a homemade butter garlic was delicious. We got no appetizers but had a huge porterhouse dry aged steak. Cooked just the way we like it. It came with string beans... More

Went there during last snow storm the owner Danny waited on us. He is a true professional. Explain everything about the menu and the steaks. Never had to wait for a drink. We had the dry aged 24 oz Kansas City Strip Sirloin. It was cooked perfect and tasted great. There was a great atmosphere and view of the city.... More

20oz rib eye is amazing, great service too. If you're getting the ferry over, well worth nipping two minutes down the road for a bite before getting it back.

Engaged attentive owners and staff. Very fair prices. All the team working together to ensure customers are well looked after. Meatball appetizer 5/5 will order again. Fillet mignon cooked perfect and great quality. Potato gratin is the best. Fantastic creamed spinach and the Jameson Choc Molten cake is worth the boat ride by itself. Great wine list accommodating all budgets... More

Being new to New York, my daughter and I took the ferry into Staten Island and stumbled upon Ruddy and Dean. We travel weekly and always up for a new adventure. It was approximately 1:30 on a Monday afternoon and the place was relatively empty. Our waiter was nice but service very slow. We ordered salad which was brought out... More

the reason the waiter asked you if you want it butterflied is because well done takes about 35 to 40 minutes if you don't do that . Time might have been mentioned ? When you dont know what well done is you should't oreder it . Well done is shoe leather , dried out , equals not juicy . Our... More

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

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
