We visited Rudee's during our family vacation, which included two young children (somewhat picky eaters) and a mix of tastes in the adults. The Valet Parking is a nice touch, and the outdoor seating on the rocking tables was unique. Hannah was our waitress and...More

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.
