Like so many families, we always tried to vacation by the water. This early shot of me and our three girls is from one of our many vacations to Kiawah Island. Now we head to South Carolina for our annual vacation with the girls, their husbands and our eight grandchildren.
The appeal of the water is really how we ended up on Catawba Island. We started by boating, then added a condo and then sold everything in order to open Rudder’s. Now into our 15th year it is still is a labor of love. We remain in love with the area, the relaxed way of life, and, of course, the lake.
No matter where we traveled, we have always been a family looking for that small individually owned place to stop and get a great meal. Our hope is that you look at Rudder’s as your special local place, and know that we will always strive to bring you great fresh homemade food served up with a smile and a big THANK YOU.
