    We have been long time fans of Rudy’s Lake side. It was always a tradition for my family as a child, it was how we began our “spring season”..My grandfather would take us and now I bring my grandchildren. I love the standards..fish.Texas hots.but always look forward to trying new additions, as of late..” Crab bites”. Have won me over.

  3. Marcia Kray says:

    Love you guys…look forward to the week after st. Pattys ever year!

  4. Bob Fancher says:

    “Our season runs from the Wednesday closest to St Patrick’s Day in MARCH”

    We are talking like three weeks here. Spring is on the way.

    Looking forward to it.

      Something to look forward to-can’t wait to have a great fish sandwich and to bring home a tub of awesome texas hot sauce

  5. Jo Adams says:

    I’m in my late 60′s and started going to Rudy’s in my early teens, so I’m a diehard Rudy’s fan. I now live in Jacksonvllle, FL and I’m able to get Hoffman hotdogs and coneys from Publix and I brought packets of your hotsauce spices from home the last time I was back and I feel like I have died and gone to heaven! Thank you for selling the spice mix! I need to order more.

  6. Grace says:

    I LOVE RUDYS SO VERY much I could die eating there!!!!!!!

  7. Stewart Parmelee says:

    I Visit my Father every year, and I always stop at Rudy’s. I love the the fried Haddock and chips, I also like the fried clams. I love the food at Rudy’s.

  8. Russ Goldthwait says:

    Great food beautiful view of the lake and polite/friendly staff. Rudy’s is about the only place you can take the family go for a dip in the lake then enjoy a great meal. Our whole family love’s rudy’s lakeside and we are there all the time.

  9. Deborah Duhon says:

    I was at your restaurant last week and really enjoyed the food. I’ve been there many times when I was younger and still love the food.

  10. Bob Fancher says:

    We get there probably once a week or at lease 3 times a month. Live in Baldwinsville. Like the ride too.

    But – known to regulars – great Mac and Cheese and great Grilled Cheese sandwiches. Sounds funny for a fish place, but – sometimes that is the way it is!

    I consider myself a regular now after about 3 – 4 years of going there. And better than reasonable prices!

  11. Suzanne Taylor says:

    Can’t wait until Friday the 17th to make my first visit of the year-my son goes to Oswego State and we move him out that day and it’s tradition to eat at Rudy’s both move-in day and move-out day-can’t wait for the best fish ever and a jar of your awesome texas hot sauce to bring home and enjoy!!!

  12. Dave and Rebecca says:

    Looking forward to our visit on Monday!!

  13. Sherry Winchell says:

    I try to visit every time i’m in Oswego! Love the food and the drive is worth it! Although it helps I have family in Oswego lol

  14. Janet Coons says:

    This was a great find on a simple Saturday drive my husband and I were on. Looking for a place to eat we had come across Rudy’s, now the proud owners of “Routie” our lab, we had to give you a try. The food was awesome and we will be back! Glad you had opened for the upcoming season. Lucky us! See you soon! The Coons’

  15. Barb says:

    I’m celebrating St Pat’s day with you! As I’m alone this year, I will celebrate with the best Red Plate on the planet! No worries of centers or tails, my pieces will be perfectly done with fries and onion petals. And if you ever wonder why Rudy’s is so good, I can only say the breading is crisp, and the fish/haddock is moist. No soggy fish. Rudy’s Rules! Love you! See you shortly :)

  16. Fred Suppon says:

    Came to this area almost 40 years ago right after college. Haven’t missed a year yet that I didn’t make it to Rudy’s several times a season. Have been trying to duplicate their hot sauce for 20 years and I haven’t come close. Rudy’s is a great timeless tradition in a culture that doesn’t pay much attention to tradition any more. Thank God for Rudy’s, I know I do.

  17. Bob Fancher says:

    Opened yesterday!!!!!

  18. Pete Russell says:

    Rudy’s is the start of SPRING in Oswego NY

  19. Bob Fancher says:

    Today is March 11th. (2013) My wife Kathy has been talking about Rudy’s for a month. The season begins when they open. I hope it is soon. Maybe this weekend? Maggie our dog loves the ride. One of my sons Joey almost always goes along during the week. Friday nite just Mom and me.

    I can not wait much longer. It is a great stress reliever and great food and a great plus for Oswego.

    I’m going to try more stuff off the menu this year. It is hard to change when you find something you like – so I order more which I know I am not supposed to do.

  20. Sven says:

    What precisely genuinely inspired you to create “Guestbook | Rudy’s Lakeside”? I reallyreally loved it! Thanks a lot -Viola

  21. D Pottinger says:

    I went to Rudy’s while a student at SUNY Oswego back in 1969-1971 before I transferred to Arizona State. It was a great place to go and have some food and a beer.

  22. C.J. Behne says:

    LOVE LOVE RUDYS!
    BORN IN AND GREW UP IN OSWEGO!
    WE ALWAYS WENT OUT TO THE “LOOP”..AND RUDY’S..
    SAY HI TO CAROL FOR ME..[AND PATTY ] TOO!

  23. Jack Mullin says:

    Born and raised in Fulton , four years ago my wife and I moved to Charleston , SC , it’s nice here , just no Rudy’s . Lots of people eat catfish down here , I don’t think they would if they tried haddock from Rudy’s , guess you can tell I really miss that place huh ?

  24. Terry Baker says:

    I was heart broken to see that you will be closed on Monday the 24th. We are just traveling through, but I was planning on making a stop at your place. Whenever I am in the area I go out of my way to eat at Rudy’s. Unfortunately, I don’t get back there very often. I was born the year you opened, and I can remember talking to Rudy and his partners as well as the hostess’s while waiting for our food. It was busy back then, but nothing like the last time I was there. Your food has no rivals. I am sure glad that Rudy didn’t sell to the college years ago when they wanted the property.
    Sincerely,
    Terry Baker (OHS ’64)

  25. Lisa L says:

    I was introduced to Rudy’s while working in Fulton NY. What a great spot with forever views of the water and the horizon. Now that I have my own children, I bring them there often to enjoy the sunsets and the great food.

    My dad recently moved back to Syracuse after over 40 years and we plan to bring him their tonight for his 65th birthday. He has never been to Rudy’s. We will see you tonight!

  26. j daggett says:

    got a t-shirt from you about 20 yrs ago and its finally wearing out and would love to have another or a hat but can not find a place anywhere to order one or see what you have for sale,, please leave me know how I can buy some things,, just LOVED your food and the view,, SUPER place!!

  27. George Holbert says:

    I went to Rudy’s with a friend this past weekend,she said you have to try this place.The food was great.Now I want to go back again and try evrything.If you leave hungry it’s your own fault.I wish I lived close by.All they need is to play some old time music boy what a place.I give it an A.

  28. Russ and Linda Bauer says:

    We found Rudy’s by accident because we took a wrong turn while in the area for a few days, best wrong turn we ever made, what a great place!!! The food was great, we hope to get back there again someday.

    Russ and Linda Bauer

  29. Wow! Our second Euro-Bike Ride-In was three times the size of the first year. Thanks to Rudy’s for being a great destination with great food! Rudy’s team worked with us to make sure we had everything we needed for our event. We estimate 85 motorcycles on field and many more came to see what the Ride-In was about.
    Thank you Rudy’s! Al Eckstadt and Jim Mignogna.

  30. Big Art Powers says:

    Love Rudy”s food, looking so forward to my return trip for a lil visit. ;)

  31. Leslie says:

    My husband PJ is from Mexico, NY. We live in Deep South GA….Alma, GA. When we go north to visit his family (every 3 years), we eat everyday at The Loop. This is the only fish my 9 year old daughter will eat. I love the foot, the atmosphere, the scenery and the stories that my husband and his family sits around the picnic tables and tells while eating. Keep up the work! Hoping to see you on Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives one of these days. Love ya’ll

    • Leslie says:

      Sorry…I love the food….not foot!

    • Mary C. Kitchens says:

      I too was born & raised in Oswego, now living in Georgia. Rudy’s was always the favorite place to eat that delicious fish,throw stones & have ice cream. I wish you had a branch down south somewhere. When my mother was alive, I would make a trip up once a year to see her. As soon as I hit town, I would head to Rudy’s first. Eat there several times while I was there, then make it my last stop before heading out. Now I don’t have to make the trip any more,and I really miss Rudy’s. Please consider opening a place down south. I’m sure it would be a success.

  32. lori p says:

    Love rudys food!!! Is rudys open easter Sunday?

  33. Joy richardson says:

    Looking forward to eating at Rudys soon! Miss your fabul
    ous food, while I live in NC now.

  34. Daniel Bruce says:

    All I can say is that I have fond memories of this place, I’ve been here so many times since I was a child untill now. This was and still is the Bruce families favorite place to eat, I can remember after all the hard farm work we did, my grandfather would say, ” lets go celebrate by eating at the LOOP :) ” What great childhood memories I have with my Dad and family, nothing like bailing hay and earning some good food and ice cream afterward. Oh how I miss them days. I’ve since moved away to Florida in the early 90′s I was 16 years old and my grand parents went home to be with Jesus around that time :( I wish I could go back in time. I plan on taking my wife and five children to bring back some good ole memories of where I spent my childhood out in the country and watch them enjoy the delicious foods from the loop.

  35. debbie says:

    we move from the area but everytime we come home for a vist we have to stop by to get some good fish an ff yumm . can nt wait to get it again.

  36. Liz Davis says:

    It isn’t summer untill we stop by Rudy’s and have ice cream by the lake.

  37. J. Dallas says:

    I was born in the Oswego area and I recall going with my maternal grandfather for the Texas hots. I still get back there once in a blue moon. Reminds of the past and simpler times.

  38. Robert Bullard says:

    I was born and raised in Oswego/Fulton area, moved to Florida when I was 15. Whenever I had a chance to come back to Oswego, I always made a trip (or two/three) to Rudy’s. My mother loved the Haddock “Fishtale Hot”, mine was the Texas Hot. She died last year in February, I plan to have Fishtale Hot sandwiches this month on the anniversary of her death to remember her. She loved eating at Rudy’s when we lived in N.Y. Thank you for all the memories and the great food. Hope to visit you soon.

  39. Niel says:

    I was told about your place by members of my cousins race team Bob,Ray Larry,the Knopps and Abold’s. Both my wife and I were hooked the first time we ate there.Best fish fry we’ve ever had.We both love sea food.Sad it’s Jan. and wanted a great fish fry.Your name was the first to come to mind,sad to find out your only seasonal.We would have made the 260 mi. round trip.I guess we’ll have to wait until spring see you then.

  40. Keith R Gibson says:

    What can I say about Rudys? Started going there as a child. Ate my food and threw stones in the lake. Later moved to Pa. and when i would come back to Oswego to visit my grandmother I would bring one of my friends with me and then they would enjoy it. After moving to Oklahoma, I have taken my kids there every summer when we visit my parents in Oswego. There are certain things that bring backs warm memories, the movie theater, canales, stones candy and of course Rudys.

  41. L. Sue Clemons (former owner-Haircuttech) says:

    Rudy’s opened in 1946, I was three, I’ve been going there ever since. Now I live in CA but Rudy’s is the first place I go when I go home, so do my kids and grands. Absolutely the best fish ever!!! Everything else is great too!!!
    Carol, it was wonderful seeing you this summer, you still look FABULOUS!!! I had Rudy’s tail hots every day I was in Ooswego !
    Now that I have found a place out here, where I can buy Haddock, all I need is Rudy’s Texas Hot Sauce to help me from missing Oswego. See you next Summer. Say Hi to Pat and Jason.

  42. Jill Creamer says:

    I grew up near Oswego but live in Pennsylvania now. I introduced my husband and children to Rudy’s and make a point to go there when we ‘re in NY visiting my family. We brought my sons girlfriend with us for our 4th of July trip this year and took her to Rudy’s…another generation being primed to keep the tradition alive! I would like to get her a Rudy’s hoodie for Christmas. The web site says I can buy the merchandise online but I can’t find where I can order one. Can anyone help me?

  43. Frank Fisher says:

    From 1951 through 1956 a Rudy and Marie Gadziala (do i have the spelling right?) used to invite the children of the Oswego Children’s Home and the Saint Francis Orphanage for free hot dogs and drinks. It was a great day out for us. The place was very different then as a whole new restaurant has been built since. Once when my dad came to visit us at the Home we took a drive out to the hot dog stand, but summer was over and the place was closed. I have a picture of us in the parking lot with the restaurant out by the road in the background and the lake behind us. Does it sound like the same place?

    • Kathy Boudoin says:

      I bet it’s the same place : ) My Parents were teenagers back then. She said when Rudy’s first opened, it was the first and only “fast food” place around. Everyone went there from all over Oswego and Fulton. She told me about how the Church used to arrange “hay rides” for the teens to go to Rudy’s. My Mom and Dad, Aunts and Uncles used to go there on dates. : ) Now it’s one of my favorite places to visit when I am home.

  44. Larry says:

    I have been going to Rudy’s since 2002, when I started coming up to Nine Mile Point. What a great place to enjoy fried fish, sudz, and some of the most spectacular sunsets anywhere!

    I still think it would be great eating a “Red” and guzzling beer in the winter along the sea (Lake) wall – who cares about snow and sub-zero temperatures?

  45. kenneth milden says:

    Always a treat as a kid in the late 60′s early 70′s when visiting grandma in Oswego, to go “out on the loop.” We’d skip rocks while we waited for our food… (which always came too fast.) I remember a visit when my request to dad, for me to get the ” fish tail” rather than the kids fish, was granted. Wow, was that a sandwhich. I am calling Rudy’s tomorrow, and try to get them to package six of them “to go” and ship them to Melbourne Florida! My last visit to Rudy’s, in the spring of 1988, I came into town from Virginia. I got the assisted living facility to let me take my grandmother out for the afternoon. She was initially happy to “learn” she was someone’s gramma, and when we got to Rudy’s, and sat at a picnic table, she knew EXACTLY were she was. Precious. (pause for affect) And, we ordered two fish tails.

  46. Ray Payne says:

    I moved away from the Oswego area about 16 years ago and now live in Columbia TN, about 50 miles south of Nashville. The biggest thing I and my whole family miss is going to Rudy’s for the “red or blue plate” as we often did for over 17 years. Certainly, the best fish around.

    I found a place where I can purchase frozen haddock filets and I have a small deep fryer. I have tried for a couple years to get the taste right, but I’m still not getting it right.

    Do you sell your fish fry batter? If not, can your share your receipe with me (I’m 67 years old and not going into business to sell fish!!). I currently am using Zatarain’s Crispy Southern and it’s not terribly bad, but it’s just not the same. I don’t make a batter with it, I just use it out of the box as is and do a “shake and bake type” coating with it.

    We have only been back to the area a couple times in the past 16 years, but we make it a point to to head up there and get a fish plate whenever we are in the area.
    Hope you can help at least a little. Thanks So Much

    RUDY’S IS BY FAR A ONE OF A KIND RESTAURANT THAT EVERYONE SHOULD TRY!!!

  47. Greetings my Friend,
    My wife and I love coming to Oswego’s Rudy’s at least once a month to eat. We also love buying their hot souse to bring home with us. It is great to be a part of this community here in Oswego County.
