I travel to Sidney often on business and love the at home throwback charm of the place. The food is great and the people are genuine. If you get lucky you may even get a post dinner parting joke. The bacon wrapped filet was amazing, and oh yeah they serve the old Rocky Mountain Oysters as well! It pains me... More

My family and I have many times at Dudes Steakhouse in Sidney, Nebraska. A long-standing, family-owned business, Dudes has a time honored tradition of serving up great steaks with all the traditional sides. Although the decor is still caught in the seventies, it has a quaint attraction that says... take it or leave it. I must visit if you like... More

Menu offers variety. Burger over cooked for our liking, nice sandwich otherwise. Onion rings good. Seated promptly. Great waitress. Nice atmosphere.

We had the sirloin for two, which was amazing! It was prepared perfectly, we met the chef, who is the grandson of the owner, and the bartender was friendly. The salted caramel cake was fantastic also. The restaurant was right across the street from our hotel so it was very convenient. It was so nice to go to a local... More

This is a great place to stop for dinner on the road. Fast service and good food. The beef ribs are really good and have a unique flavor with pineapple and onions topping them off. The homemade blue cheese dressing is very tasty and you don't have to use a lot of it for flavor.

I saw this place on here and saw the majority of reviews were good. Don't believe them for a second. I saw the prices and thought they were a little high but if the food is good, I got no problem paying. Ordered the prime rib which comes with two sides. Got the salad which consisted of wilted iceberg lettuce... More

from the menu NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR STEAKS ORDERED WELL DONE. I couldn't eat the steak, had a few bites, couldn't even cut it with sawing like a lumberjack. they aren't responsible for anything, we can cook it some for you. THEY REFUSED TO TAKE IT BACK OR EXCHANGE IT FOR SOMETHING ELSE!!! i WILL NEVER GO IN THERE AGAIN!

This is our date spot! Great steaks, fish hamburgers etc definitely missing out if you haven't been here. And they have a full bar on other side so drink list is extensive. Family owned and operated they really care about their customers not a chain steakhouse!

I guess when you are the only game within a hundred miles you can serve bad food at inflated prices, but this place is over the top. Hint -- don't order the beef ribs unless you like a quart of barbecue sauce over ribs that have been picked clean with a scalpel.
