Scarf Down Shellfish at Rudie's Seafood & Sausage
Today, 4:00p - 10:00p
Rudie's Seafood & Sausage is an under the radar gem that offers up, well, seafood and sausage, plus sandwiches, salads and over 30 craft brews in East Nashville.
In the days when Nashville was considered a "seafood desert," Rudie's Seafood & Sausage was quietly serving up oysters, lobster rolls and mussels, among other shellfish offerings. The Inglewood eatery is still doing just that, as well as preparing bratwurst, pork and, of course, sausage. The extensive menu also offers dishes that you don't often find in Middle Tennessee, such as poutine, salmon BLT sandwich, jambalaya and crawfish shells & cheese.
Looking to sip a cold one? You can choose from upwards of 30 canned beers to enjoy on the tucked-away patio or pick from a rotating selection of drafts. Have a furry companion in tow? Rudie's loves dogs, so Rover is welcomed on the patio! Insider tip—if your four-legged friend is at home, bring a framed pic of your pup and Rudie's will give you a drink on the house, as well as add the photo to their doggy wall!
As if it couldn't get much better, Rudie's offers brunch on Sundays from 11a–3p. Think breakfast poutine, shrimp n' grits, coffee tenderloin breakfast and smoked salmon omelette!
