We ate here on a Saturday night. We were actually going to go to Big Sam's but they had an hour wait so we decided to go to Rudee's so my wife could get some steamed oysters. We were seated immediately which was nice. The interior is nice, exactly what you'd expect from an inlet waterfront restaurant IMO. My wife got the steamed shrimp for an app and I got the steak bites. Both were really good. For our meal the wife got steamed oysters and I had bacon wrapped scallops. Only complaint on either was the oysters were stacked on a smallish plate so some of the shells got into the oyster meat. They need bigger plates for the steamed oysters IMO. Mine was good, had a good spice / brown sugar mix on top. Food was good, not great, glad we tried it.
