First time there for lunch and I was completely impressed. Really good food, healthy choices and a wonderful view.
We had a nice time at the Muddy Rudder. Very pleasant place to dine.
We both had the seared scallops with gnocchi and as usual it was an excellent meal. The scallops were a generous size and cooked perfectly -- and paired with the gnocchi and cream sauce it was a wonderful meal. For the price of the entree however we'd suggest a slightly larger portion of gnocchi. We'd also like to see a return of the bread basket -- a somewhat unique offering with the sweet butter that we always looked forward to with our meals at Muddy Rudder.
We had our favorite server Ellen:) The food took longer than usual but we weren't in a hurry and it was worth the wait!
Overall food was good except that salmon was dry
First off we asked for a high top in the bar area, didn’t get it. No big deal. Service was awful. Took forever to get our drink order. Waitress disappeared after delivering the drinks. Ordered an app. and it was delicious. Asked the waitress for some dinner rolls and was told they no longer service them. It wasn’t all that busy, not sure why service was so slow.
Used to be an upscale place, not any longer. We were not offered any water or traditional bread plate. Food was good, but on a heavy side. Drinks were ok. No tablecloth, no more live piano. There are TVs on if you would prefer to watch a game on a date. Do not think we would be going back any time soon.
Seared scallop dinner was outstanding and together with the white wine special it was a great dinner and good value. Only disappointment was the absence of the bread basket with the sweet butter; please bring it back!!
Great quiet spot with a good selection of seafood and a great view. Staff were also friendly and service was prompt.
New Years dinner was pleasant at the Rudder
Food was very good, great service. There was a pianist playing Christmas music in then background. Will definitely be back again.
The French onion soup was as tasteless. My son’s Mac and cheese was equally flavorless. They stopped serving rolls altogether. Very disappointing meal, especially for the price.
Very busy night and the staff was very mindful of our reservation. They had just been slammed with two large parties. The staff was very accommodating and seated us promptly. The food was outstanding, as always.
Great food and atmosphere. Our party of six had a wonderful evening.
It was a nice evening. We were surprised that they no longer serve bread, which is something we enjoy when we eat out.
Service was quick, food was good.
Food was delicious. Drinks were delicious. Service was fast. Server was friendly and lovely and couldn't have been better! The piano was nice, too.
For a town like Yarmouth the Muddy Rudder is a great place to have a nice night out. Went on a date with my girlfriend there on a date night and had a good time. Food was good but maybe a little overpriced, that wouldn’t keep me from going back again though. I was met at the door by a nice host and brought to the table, the waitress didn’t seemed thrilled but still treated us very well and respectfully. All and all good night.
Our waitress was very accommodating and extremely friendly. Service was efficient yet not rushed. Nice comfortable atmosphere
Good food and excellent service
Food always excellent Rozzy is always a pleasure. The only disappointment was they no longer give bread was looking forward to the bread with the sweet butter
Always friendly service. Food is delicious. Relaxing ambiance. My must-stop Maine stop for a peaceful and enjoyable dinner!
Fantastic place to eat. The staff was amazing and the food had us cleaning our plates.
Wonderful ambiance, excellent food and Rozzy delivers the best service each and every time.
We had reservations but still had to wait for our table, so that was a bit disappointing.
Our waiter was pleasant and attentive. The meal was good, but we have had better there in the past.
Cocktails were good.
My wife was very pleased with her meal. Mine could have been better. I had the fisherman's platter and the clams were overcooked.
Small portion for steak tips. Food and desserts were lukewarm. No bread or water served. Napkin had holes in it. Service on the slow side. It was better years ago.
Customer 20+ years. Not what used to be. Supplemental sheet advisory about new inflated prices. Owners don’t even produce new menus. Legendary rolls no more. Waitstaff said management trying to save on butter. Rolls could be an option for couple bucks. Then they could sell the butter pats on an each piece basis.
Great food - great server, friendly staff and nice ambience.
I thought this was at best a step above fast food and service was slow. The lobster roll did not compare to what I had at J’s in Portland.
Our experience was very good but we were disappointed that our baked stuffed lobsters were not properly cleaned out with the green inner belly area contaminating the delicious stuffing. This was after asking our server to make sure proper cleaning was done. Service was great and the view from our table very nice. Prices were as expected when compared to other places in the area.
This was our first time at the Muddy Rudder. It was a quaint restaurant with a full bar, dining area, outdoor seating and event room. Waitress was friendly and experienced. Large portions. Food was delicious. My husband ordered fish n chips and I had steak tips. This is primarily seafood with a handful of other entrees. Full wine and drink menu. Reasonably priced for portions and types of food. Highly recommend.
We have been going there for years when we are in the area and have never had a bad experience.
Your restaurant was recommended to me by a friend and we were not disappointed. Your staff were very pleasant and helpful and the food was delicious and reasonably priced. We will definitely visit you again
I was disappointed I hadn't been there in years the place looks a little rundown dirty carpets, door look like it needed to be painted, yeah the view is great by the water, staff was wonderful. food was okay but...I don't know, I was very disappointed, but its been a while since I've been there
Good food- haddock was done nicely and clam chowder was delicious.
Piano player was great but a little loud as we need to raise our voices to hear each other at dinner.
Waitress was quick and efficient.
We met some friends we had not seen for 60 years. Our server was super and understanding and was perfect in every way. Lobster bisque fantastic - whole belly clams, lobster roll and Mac and cheese superb!
Lacked some finesse like napkin under drink silverware dingy. Food very good. At 6 out of special. Service adequate.
Best place in Freeport / Yarmouth. We went back three times in a week, once with large group (22) and twice with small group (4 and 6); it was equally enjoyable each visit. Large menu so even on returning there were plenty of great selections. Wonderful service; great piano player; very accommodating of children.
Service was really good, food was delicious and ambience was very relaxing which is what we were looking for.
The food was delicious. The portions were perfect. Had room for dessert. We tried sitting outside but the road noise was so loud you couldn’t talk. Inside was a bit less noisy, but the tables are close and everyone was shouting over the din, which made it very loud.
Outdoor brunch on Labor Day weekend...so romantic. Stellar Bloody Mary and unbelievable lobster Benedict. Cannot wait for my next trip to Maine so we can do it again.
