TASTY SURPRISE FOR TWO HUNGRY TRAVELERS

We had spent the day at the outlets in Kittery Maine, so by dinner time we were very hungry. All the local haunts were very busy with most having a 1 hour wait. We decided to drive a little away from the malls to see what was around. We found the little village of Kittery and noted the Rudder... read more

Nothing spectacular, but a nice place to stop for a bite to eat. Watch out for the buffalo chicken salad, it is really spicy. It was too spicy for my wife but they were nice enuff to replace it at no charge.

I had the lobster mac n cheese and it was creamy and the best I've ever had. The spinach salad was fresh and tasty. This is a place friends come to enjoy.

On a recent trip to Kittery we ate here on my brother in laws recommendation. This was probably my favorite meal on this trip. We sat at the bar and had very friendly and fast service. The food was really good. Husband enjoyed the lobster mac and cheese and I had a chicken, brisket, and coleslaw sandwich. The wine list... More

My wife and I stopped in here on a sunny Sunday afternoon. We sat outside and shared a nicely flavored Mahi wrap with excellent homemade potato chips. They have several local beers on tap and we spent a lovely couple of hours sampling and enjoying the sunshine. Service was attentive but not intrusive, although that may have changed if it... More

This is a small place with good menu and food. Nice ladies at the bar attend to you well. Food came quick. Yummy 8 Oz burger, good homemade puffy fried chips. Lots of locals here. Not a date place unless you're pretty easy going.

I eat here all the time. It is one of my goto spots. I have never had a bad meal here. They have constant specials and a great regular menu. I was down there on this last Friday, and had the Mahi Mahi. It was cooked perfectly. I can't say how many times I have had it at other places,... More

Great spot to grab a sandwich and a local brew. It was pleasant. The burgers were unevenly cooked -but nicely presented. We really enjoy seeing Kittery come alive with so many good places to eat.

Happy people in the window, so we tried it. They add lobster broth to the mac and cheese so you cannot taste the cheese. The ribs must be cut and do not fall apart. The beer and fries are the highlights. Only one waitress for six tables, can't blame her for slow service. $75 for lunch drinks, appetizers and main... More

My wife and daughter and I went for dinner and got out of there for under $70 including an app and 2 drinks each. But what was impressive was the quality of the food - VERY good food for the price. The meatloaf was amazing. The staff are personable and seem happy to work there. Overall a great place.
