My mom and I decided to have an early dinner yesterday and after being on my feet all day working, we decided to stick closeby. Wallingford Square has a lot of offer, and we chose Rudder's Public House after reading some reviews online. We were promptly greeted and took a seat in the corner. She went with a cup of... More

The menu here was quite extensive but since we are always looking for good seafood, we ordered lobster and scallops dinners. The food was well prepared and plentiful. They had a good choice of draught beers and although we couldn't possibly eat dessert, there were some yummy sounding choices. The patio would have offered a good view but it was... More

Located in the town of Kittery, this restaurant is away from the hustle and bustle of the outlet shops! Very good food, nice setting and reasonably priced. The pulled pork, burgers and baked beans are very good. Several specials are offered each day. Beer selection is good.

I've been here twice and on both occasions we spent most of our lunch swatting flies away. The food was good and seemed fresh. I also really enjoyed their homemade chips.

This bar featured fantastic bar staff, very friendly. Due to us being confused and messing up our order they gave us some free potato chips, what a bonus. The food was very good and was a good portion size. Only complaint would be they could do with a greater choice of sides. Didn't try the beer as I was driving... More

There are many good things about the Rudders. First, the lady bartenders, especially Laura, made you feel right at home. Even though it was our first time there, we felt like regulars. The fried fish was fresh and not greasy, and the pulled pork burger was delicious and a great portion. The food was fairly priced. The only week spot... More

The cozy casual atmosphere and friendly staff made this a place that I felt comfortable in from the second I walked in the door. Food is good and the selection of beer is also. I will be back!

This little bar has a great atmosphere. The servers and bartenders are friendly and attentive. The food is not just your standard bar food. It is top notch. Always cooked to perfection and presented very nicely. They also carry a good number of draft beers. You cannot go wrong with this place. If you are in Kittery,ME at any point... More

Several weeks ago my fiance and I stopped in at Rudders for dinner since we have a sailboat at the Naval Shipyard and Rudders is right around the corner. We both had burgers although different menu selections (they have a variety of burgers). Mine was topped with their pulled pork. I can honestly say it was one of my all... More

We stopped yesterday for lunch. We both enjoyed the atmosphere We sat at a table next to the window. Great service, good food, and reasonable prices. Easy to find parking in the public lot across the street.
