Enjoy great seafood inside the cozy restaurant or outside on the deck. I the flounder, crab cakes, and eggs Benedict are my personal favorites. Nice place for Sunday brunch or a weekend date.

The hubby happened to remember that we had come to a restaurant a few times when we were visiting Virginia Beach in 2014. He found a picture and from the info, we rediscovered Rudee's. Good food and good service.

Rudee's on the Inlet welcomed its rst guest on March 17, 1983, in what was originally designed to be a bait & tackle shop. Since that day, Rudee's has grown to become one of the most popular restaurants and night spots at the Beach. Housed in a replica of an authentic Coast Guard station, the Restaurant & Cabana Bar has grown to include our outside deck with our popular "glider seating" over the water and seasonal re pit tables. Kick back, relax and have a great time. We hope you enjoy our delicious, fresh seafood, specialty drinks and the beautiful sunsets over Rudee Inlet.
