This was our first time to Rudder's and had soup, salad and sandwiches. It all was excellent - tasty, fresh and presented well! The staff was particularly friendly and helpful. We'll be returning when we're in that area.

We enjoyed the lobster and haddock. Server (Cliff) was friendly and efficient but we had a bit of a wait for our food. Enjoyed the Jost wine from Nova Scotia ( Four Skins)

This is an attractive seafood restaurant. They are about 50-->75 miles from Digby, Nova Scotia where they say is the source of the best scallops in the world. They had Digby scallops on the menu and they were great.

Probably, the best in Yarmouth ! Great outdoor space, with an indoor too ! Members of our crew split up, and did both, giving a rest to the sunshine for a few. Decent app's, good dinner. I had fried clams. Blond and light !!

I've had a chowder & a plain boiled lobster with vegetables. The restaurant is very busy, so the speed of the service can be slow at times. So if you are in for a quick bite this may not be the place for you. However...More

We had a large party and they accommodated us and gave us great service on the patio for lunch. Food was excellent. Service was even better. Great selection of beer for differing beer tastes.
