Two of us had the fisherman platter. This included cod, calamari, shrimp and clams. Everything was fried. Calamari was much too large in my opinion. Neither of us could eat it. Disappointing dinner for us both.

Rudy's is a throwback restaurant whose ambience makes you feel like you are back in the 60's or 70's. Their featured lobster was very nicely prepared and presented, and the accompanying dishes were also good -- nothing fancy but tasty. When we arrived (7 PM...More

The lobster is why we went to eat at Rudy's. The sides were delicious, too. And the service was excellent!

Our waitress has worked there for 37 years. She was outstanding! Great humor, and understands how to gage her customers. Food was fresh, hot and delicious. Fresh asparagus was the veggie of the day. Bread warm and tasty. Wine selection great and prices reasonable.

Rudy's used to be a great place, 20 years ago, now it is very outdated. The menu and the decor needs an update. The food was nothing to rave about. Rudy's definitely needs a facelift.

We love Rudy's Hideaway. it's such a shack and also like a time machine. Entering the clapboard lean-to takes you to the 50's martini soaked club nightlife. The seafood is always good. The service is friendly. Portions are big and sides are old fashioned. All...More
