You need to be in the mood for Rudys! Its usually a wait...cramped and takes a bit on a busy night but I love it. So nice to sit outside with beer and some friend food...yum. Never have had a bad meal....service is with a smile.

The fried fish etc is average or maybe a little above average. I tried the Texas hot sauce which is very greasy and was not hot at all. Hamburgers and Hot dogs are ok, most people get the Texas hot sauce on these. If you want something semi healthy look elsewhere. I've tried the tuna steak, and it's horrible. Wish... More

Rudys has wonderful fried food. Seating is good in the pavilion. I don't like sitting behind the restaurant because that near the dumpsters. Its a fun summer spot to sit, eat and enjoy yourself with people of all ages.

Right on the shore of Lake Ontario, Rudy's is your typical upstate NY fried haddock on Friday night place. NOT! The menu has so much to choose from, you might have to let the others standing at the counter go ahead of you. It's all on the wall behind the counter, you look up, you choose. Fried fish, seafood, steamed... More

A tradition in these parts . Fast food and fish. Served by the lake on a warm beautiful day and breeze. Food is cheap but good.

This is one of the best eateries I have ever had the pleasure to visit. Great food well served and a great setting on the Lake. A Memorable place Rudy's. Visited on first day of our visit and couldn't wait to go again. Great and quick service.

And the other very unpleasant and poor one had also been at Rudy's in spring 2014. The view of lake Ontario is spectacular, especially at sunset. For me, however, the food is simply unedible. First off, most of the choices are fried, not a favorite for me as I almost never eat fried foods. The place reeks of frying oil,... More

Um....lovely sunsets. Beautiful vistas. Great view of Lake Ontario. The food is sad. Needed napkinS to blot the fat from the soggy, not flavorful scallops. Nice folks behind the counter

Wide selection of delicious take-out items including fish, fish burgers, clams, fries, "salted potatoes", chicken, onion pedals etc. etc. All delicious. You sit outside by the lake and enjoy the scenery. Ice-cream afterwards is also to die for- Perry's Ice-cream. They also make their own specialties like the giant ice-cream sandwich made with homemade cookies.
