A gem of a steak house!!!.
On Labor Day weekend of 2011, I drove my family to Staten Island for a treat -- a quality steak dinner at an affordable price. I was not disappointed! Rudy & Dean is a no nonsense establishment with courteous service and a relaxed atmosphere. I had a great Bloody Mary (homemade horseradish!!); the oysters were fresh; mother's New England clam chowder was delicious (with homemade bacon bits). My spouse and I shared a Porterhouse steak that was cooked to perfection; its quality right up there with pricier cuts in Manhattan. The homemade steak relish (loved it); sides of saut

I just ate here for the first time tonight with my wife and four-year old son and felt compelled to write this review. Everything we had from the scallop starter to the rare ribeye, right through dessert was impeccible. Service was just as good as the food, and the courses were perfectly timed.
Staten Island's Best Kept Secret.
Danny, the owner has done his homework. What more could one ask for. Good.... no, great food, pleasant decor and good service. From the bread assortment with the flavored butter to a great magarita, the food is mouthwatering with generous portions. The menu is flawless. (No, I haven't been paid to write this review). The pizza is comparable to Grimaldi's (all fresh ingredients), and the chicken dishes are to die for. Check out the chicken breast topped w/fresh proscioutto or mozeralla chesse wrapped in bacon with garlic mashed potatoes and spinach ($18) it's enough for two diners. Need I say more.
Best Fried Calamari!.
My boyfriend and I have declared Ruddy and Dean's "Our Spot". Our meals have always been the BEST - excellent service! Get the fried calamari - trust me. Everything is well timed for the perfect meal.
