Cozy place, with a bug wood bar and lots of local nautical decor. Had the fish and chips (actual home made chips), they were really good and came to the table too hot to touch. Highly recommend this one if you're in Vermilion and want tasty pub food.

We go to rudy's about 1-2 times a month. They have great burgers, and other items like wings and tacos shine as well. Check for their daily specials. There staff seems a little lite but they hustle and get the job done.

Cool neighborhood bar in beautiful Vermilion Ohio. Above average eats and full bar. Rudy loves Jeger and always has a dedicated cooler full of it. Perfect place to hang out and talk to local fishermen about the days catch. Shoot some pool or throw some darts. There is frequently entertainment on the weekends. And the place gets packed for NFL... More

Best hamburger in town, small town atmosphere, big wood bar with friendly staff, you are waited on quickly and efficiently. Because I am a wine drinker, I don't often come there because of its poor selection of bad and cheap wines. Life is too short for that. There also daily specials of burgers and wings, both popular selections with the... More

We had burgers and beers at Rudy's on Vermilion's Third Thursday. The place is VERY noisy when it's busy - and we've heard that it's always busy. Our guys had fun playing pool. Our food took a long time to come and was just okay. Just not our cup of tea.

You know a place is good when there are many locals, a full bar area, free popcorn, and people picking up large take out orders. There was also a high school reunion (the class of 67) going on, and we as visitors also enjoyed our time here. Friendly service. My husband had a great cheeseburger and my fish sliders were...
