This restaurant is great for seafood lovers and vegetarians alike. The atmosphere and staff are great. During our visit they had live music and the man performing was amazing! It is pricey, however fresh, good quality seafood always is! Personally I had a vegetarian grilled veggie sandwich which was very tasty and it was a reasonable price.

I've eaten lunch and supper at Rudders many times. The craft beer choices are many and excellent and the food is high quality pub fare with plenty of seafood.

On the working harbor front, this is primarily a seafood restaurant, but offers plenty of options for those who prefer meat or salads. I had the fried haddock with fries. The haddock was fabulous - perfectly cooked, tender, flavorful, with a delicate light batter. I highly recommend it. Not a fan of the fries though. There are several things you... More

The view from the patio is gorgeous! Unfortunatel, that was the best part of our visit. We we looking forward to sampling the local brew, but they only had one on tap. Seriously! A brewpub with only one of their brews available? How do you run out of everything? That should have been our first clue. The food was subpar... More

Visiting Yarmouth for only a short time I was very excited to try this restaurant and I looked forward to having a nice fresh seafood meal! I was however very disappointed. We started with appetizers and after the let down did not even bother ordering mains. My calamari was very bland. I literally could not taste anything unless I dipped... More
