Review of Rudee's on the Inlet

227 Mediterranean Ave, Virginia Beach, VA 23451

Overall Rating


If I could give this place a negative amount of stars I would. My boyfriend had a steak and I had the crab cakes. His steak was obviously cooked before we arrived and reheated for our order. It was dried out and tasteless. My crab cakes were mush and flavorless. I've never eaten cat food but if I did I imagine what I had for dinner that night would be very close to the experience. Our "vegetable medley" was undercooked summer squash and and zucchini with canned corn thrown in. Yes, CANNED corn. Outside of the food being a complete abomination the interior was cheap and felt like a Captain D's dining room. Relatives that live near by have informed me that most people only go here for the outdoor bar and I can't imagine any other way this place could stay open if their food is what we experienced.

They do have a separate gluten free menu unlike many other places in the area but it isn't worth it. I paid $27 for my cat food cakes but we did have the staff take off the steak seeing as it was beyond the classification of "food." The staff was friendly enough and offered to comp the steak without us having to ask.

I would never ever step foot into this place again.

Celiac friendly?
