When we arrived at 3:30 as booked we were seated immediately and our waitress showed up in a timely way, was very pleasant and personable. My wife had baked Haddock and requested mashed potatoes instead of rice. It was all very good. I ordered the Shrimp Scampi which was very good. We both used the lunch menu and the portions were just right. We will be going back and will no doubt have the same dishes. The price was reasonable. Less than 39 dollars including a 6 dollar tip. We did wait a little while for the waitress to come back to ask about desert and then give us the bill.

I was there on a much needed celebratory date with my husband. We had been there a few years ago and the experience was more "elegant" than on this occasion. It was very loud and felt like a family style restaurant. For the price it would have been nice to have a more quiet / relaxed atmosphere.

Very disappointed in this place. The server was not friendly at all, or very attentive. The appetizers were okay, but the meals were bland and over-cooked. The fish didn't taste fresh, even the haddock, which is unbelievable, considering how cheap and available fresh haddock is. Neither my husband or I ate even half of our entrees. The kids liked theirs okay. We did appreciate that the host came over after to see how it could have been better, but there were no attempts to make amends. Definitely would not go back or recommend.

Waitress was excellent.
Our meal was wonderful. - had the haddock with the seafood stuffing excellent and carrots cut and cooked beautifully.
The lunch time caesar side salad was marginal with lettuce, very scant cheese and croutons too big and tough to eat.

Normally I'd say this place is too loud but we were fortunate there were no large parties in the separate section of the restaurant and the view was still nice and the service was good although we were right in the path of the servers. How to appreciate you doing Groupon which made it more affordable for us.

We had the best service and a wonderful meal - all the seafood dishes we tried were very delicious and fresh. We loved that we had a wonderful relaxing time and never felt rushed! :-)

We have dined here several times and enjoyed it. Last Saturday night it was awful. Poor service and we waited over an hour for our meals. We finally walked out before they came because the waitress didn’t check in the meal status or us. Really bad service. Not sure if we will go back.

Got a great deal on a Groupon. The food was very good. My boyfriend who was celebrating his birthday ordered a sirloin special and it was overcooked which we unfortunately expect at restaurants and the piece was very grisly.

My wife and I went to dinner on Sunday evening. There were very few people in the restaurant yet the service was amazingly slow. It appeared only only person was working both the bar and dining room. As for the food, despite the tasty sounding array of choices I thought the food was very average. What was most disappointing was the fact that EVERYTHING was cold! You can imagine how difficult it is to eat lobster bisque that was literally thick due to its temperature. As for the remainder of food: seafood cakes, fried calamari and popcorn shrimp it was average at best. To be frank with the exception of the calamari everything else seemed to be out of a box. We very seldom complain of restaurants(and did not do so to our server because I just wanted to put it behind me and call it a night) but I thought the Muddy Rudder should be aware of what our experience was like and hopefully take any/all necessary corrective action. Good luck in the future. Brendan

The restaurant is warm and welcoming. Our server was attentive without hovering. The food was very traditional, well prepared, and tasty. There was live piano music in the background— a lovely touch
