Great place and family friendly. The food was great and the service was very friendly. As a bonus our sons got to see a submarine in the harbor when we left.

When I say Upscale, don't think fancy - it's just nice. It has a vibe and good food and great beer and is just overall a terrific but small little place tucked into the heart of Kittery Foreside. It's very close to 5 stars - everything is there except a little effort to be really exceptional. Definitely one of the... More

Stopped in for lunch today with the family and it was great.

Having heard about Rudders, I expected a little more from it. Everything was good - but nothing stood out to distinguish it particularly from other bars.

Found Rudders through Trip Advisor while looking for somewhere to have a late lunch/early dinner. It was a great stop on the way home from the outlets with my brother and mom. I ordered the fish and chips, which is one of the top house dishes, and got a great recommendation for a beer from my waitress. (I'm terrible with... More

We used to dine here when it was called Crooked Corner Cafe. We were pleasantly surprised to see the comfortable atmosphere that was different with this place. We had a wonderful waitress named Jillian. It felt so wonderful to be waited on by someone that loved to be at work and thought it important to be welcoming and very helpful.... More

It's not rare to see uniformed service men and women in this eatery as it's steps away from the PNSY gate. A busy place. Great, informed service. Fantastic menu and food.
