“Super clean great wait staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 6, 2013

We had a wonderful experience with a really nice waitress (older women). She was so nice that we didn't have the heart to tell her the scallops were horribly over cooked. (for $24 I expected better). The salmon was perfectly cooked and very good. We thought the atmosphere was wonderful and really enjoyed the piano player for the background music. The place was super clean.

“What a view !”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 4, 2013 via mobile

With new chefs and menu, Muddy Ruddy delivers. The view overlooking the marsh and river are a bonus. We had a party of eight and had excellent service . Fresh seafood was properly cooked and any fried food was just lightly battered. Seafood was cassarole was loaded with scallops, lobster and fish.

“Good but not great”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 30, 2013

Nice setting, piano player, pleasant ambiance. Somewhat inattentive waitress. Food was pretty good, but heavy on cream sauces. Don't get the signature scallops thinking they'll be a "lite" option. Also, pretty pricing for what you're getting. Everyone in our party had a nice time, but nothing special. I'd come again, to try something else. The calamari was best thing we had, but even that was a bit much, which the frying and fatty sauce...

“Easy On-Off Access Location, Nice & Quaint, but Leave Me Wanting”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 20, 2013

It was a quick food choice midway during a road trip with friends that brought me to this convenient Maine highway-side restaurant. Located adjacent to a bucolic tidal basin, the views are great. We (3 guys) decided to sit up at the bar which is centered in the dining area. A few modest lunches of burgers and lobster rolls were as expected; actually even a little better. We all enjoyed our food. The menu is populated with the expected coastal fare of lobster, clam chowder, sandwiches, and entrees; again, as expected. The service was pretty slow and inattentive, but it is Maine in March and at a time of year when the maple sap and waiters are moving slow... It's worth a stop if your nearby, but I wouldn't go out of my way to get here.

“Wonderful first time impression”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 14, 2013

We used a Groupon deal to visit the Muddy Rudder on a Thursday evening. Started off with a great Mussel's appertizer then went on to nice caesar salads. My entre was the Fra Diavlo and it was full of seasfood and quite good. The wife had the seafood scampi and it too, was wonderful. Nothing but good things to say about our waiter Nichole and the restaurent.
