Reviews for Dudley's On Short

Friend came over and she wanted oysters on the half shell. She's looking on Google for places and reading them to me....no, maybe, hell no. Dudley's... Why yes we will. She hadn't heard of Dudley's. She knows now.Oyster were best I've ever had,(from Vancouver,BC) and I grew up on the Gulf coast. Swear I could hear seagulls,and waves lapping on the pier, and taste the brine of the ocean.Staff was courteous, efficient,and engaging.She's ready to go back (me too) and try some dishes.
Weird brunch vibe. Extremely loud. No music. Dark. The complimentary bread basket was great (1 small biscuit and 1 small chocolate chip muffin). The eggs Benedict was one of the worst I’ve ever had in my life: the brown butter was practically caramel, which believe it or not, is not good with eggs. My eggs were also over poached and firm inside. No yolk. Chicken salad was good. Fruit was fresh and of great quality. Bloody Mary was bland, no flavor other than straight tomato...read full review

4.5*, only 2 things from being 5* were they couldn't seat us outside (despite my reservation to do so as tables were full) and I picked the brunch special based on the Dana's (sweet waitress' recommendation). She came back to the table later saying it was sold out. Food delicious and dessert a very nice touch. Gentleman who took the reservation Friday afternoon was very nice as well.
