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 the caliber of a steakhouse. And make no mistake - Judson's prices are on par... 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 ok to have something while waiting for your food. They had a great drink and... 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 not very attentive - several times she had to wait quite a while for her... More

Judson's is a good steakhouse option if you are not looking for extremely expensive but better than chain restaurants. The atmosphere is modern and cozy. A nice place to go on a date or have dinner with friends. The service has always been good, as well as the food.

We had a table of 10, and everybody sampled something different on the menu, from steaks to pork chops to salmon. Everyone enjoyed their meal, and nobody had any complaints about the preparation,. I was impressed with the preparation of the salmon; it was done perfectly!

We very much enjoyed our first meal at Judson's Steakhouse. My husband chose to eat here for his birthday. We were warmly greeted and immediately taken to our table. Trisha, our waitstaff, was extremely helpful and friendly. We both selected a steak, which was on a special menu for the evening. Unlike the rest of the items listed, our food... More
