My daughter and I stopped in for lunch while visiting Va Beach for the weekend. Even though it was incredibly hot out, it was nice under the shade of the glider table. The buffalo shrimp was incredible, the waitress friendly and efficient, and the atmosphere...More

Cute little place with seating in the harbor. Little pricey but worth it for the FRESH catch. The fried shrimp appetizer is a must!!! This is where the pirate ship docks so be ready for your kids to ask the entire dinner when they can...More

I understand that a restaurant that provides outdoor seating means that the customer assumes the risk of "too hot, too cold, too many insects" etc. However, the customer DOES need to take that into account at this place - this location is literally on the...More

The fries here are to die for! The just the right amount of crispy on the outside and served hot. Dip them in cocktail sauce. Crab cakes were a 8 out of ten. Hardly any bread crumbs.

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.
