Seafood omelette's for breakfast are delish at Rudee's. All food was terrific including the shecrab soup. Service could not have been better. Great to sit outside or inside

Rudees is a large house serving fresh seafood. The seating is a little cramped and the food is not as good as some other seafood restaurants in the area. Parking is limited.

Rudee's is named for a water inlet not a person. It has delicious seafood and a view of the water and marina that is lovely! The waiter's are honest and informative. The veggie side dish was better than the usual side and the fried scallops were fresh and delicious.

Even though we have been locals for over 20 years, it's never too late to eat at a popular eatery. So we stopped in for lunch. Nice menu and not overwhelming. Mostly all dishes feature local seafood. Good selection of daily specials. Fair pricing and attentive wait staff. Very enjoyable dining experience.

Stopped here for a light meal after going to the Marine And Science Museum. Even though we are within driving distance we had never been so I was a bit excited. No more. We had an order of Oysters Rockefeller and they would have been good if they hadn't been served with grated Parmesan cheese which as far as I... More

My girlfriend and I had a wonderful sunset meal at one of their fire pit table tops. All the food we had was delicious and the staff were top notch. Can't wait to bring her daughter and grandchildren back this summer.

Rudee's on the Inlet welcomed its rst guest on March 17, 1983, in what was originally designed to be a bait & tackle shop. Since that day, Rudee's has grown to become one of the most popular restaurants and night spots at the Beach. Housed in a replica of an authentic Coast Guard station, the Restaurant & Cabana Bar has grown to include our outside deck with our popular "glider seating" over the water and seasonal re pit tables. Kick back, relax and have a great time. We hope you enjoy our delicious, fresh seafood, specialty drinks and the beautiful sunsets over Rudee Inlet.
