About us

The “Rudder” as the locals call it, has been serving guests since 1976 and has evolved into one of the most popular destinations for fresh seafood in Maine. Enjoy lunch, dinner, or a weekend brunch in our restaurant while you enjoy river views. Our convenient location is ideal when you need a break from shopping in Freeport. Sip a drink at our bar or just enjoy a delicious dessert after a movie.
