“Great Dining by the Harbor!”
Reviewed 22 June 2014

My wife and I just got back from a delightful dining experience at the Rudder Restaurant. We went without reservations and had a bit of a wait but we expected it. Once we were seated our waitress came right over and couldn't be more friendly and accommodating to our needs. The meal we both had we delicious and plentiful to our needs and appetites. So if you are looking for fine dining, reasonable prices and a great view - go to The Rudder.

“Anniversary Dinner....”
Reviewed 20 May 2014

Since we live in Gloucester, we've been to almost all the restaurant's in town! But some we save for "special" occasions. Not that you should! The food here is very good and you can actually get a "meal" that isn't "fried seafood"...although that is also on the menu. My tuna tartar app was beyond marvelous, in fact, next time I'm just going to have 2 of them! We both had the specials
of the day, both fish (tuna & halibut) and both were great. Lovely water view...enjoy!

“Lovely Spot!”
Reviewed 30 April 2014

The staff makes this place! I stopped in just before close as I came into town late on a Thurs night. The kitchen was just closed but they kept it open for me to grab a quick bite to eat.
The ladies at the bar were amazing! So friendly and helpful :)
I'm only sad I didn't get a change to go back for dinner! Trip was too busy :(
Thanks again for the amazing experience.

“Great casual dining.”
Reviewed 23 March 2014

Disliked: little available parking. Food and staff outstanding. Love the bar and dining outdoors on the deck. Wish it were open year-round.
