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

Went there with family twice recently. Once sat at the bar and ate, the other time at a table. Both were nice. Staff is very friendly and helpful, and the food (pub-style comfort food) is good. We were there on week nights, so parking was easy and while fairly busy, it wasn't hard to find a table. An excellent selection... More

Part of the emerging Kittery Foreside neighborhood, in booming Wallingford Square. Parking was tight in Kittery-an emerging problem with the bridge reopened. Other places looked full, so we decided to try Rudders. It is small, but nicely decorated. Only seating was at the bar. The place is a bit noisy (why bars feel the need to have tv's and play... More

A lively and pleasant local eatery that offers a versatile menu, extensive bar, and superb service. To top it off, the last time we were there they discovered that, after ordering, they were out of my wife's selection and offered her any other choice for free (we declined the generous offer and paid for value received - but we had...
