With its slogan, “We’re not just at the lake. We’re on the lake,” the Rusty Rudder is the heart of Lake Norman’s nightlife scene. Some come for the great seafood, fish tacos, and drink specials, others for the entertainment and social atmosphere. With beer pong tournaments and acoustic artists performing, Tuesday nights are akin to a frat party. And the live music on Friday and Saturday nights brings out people of all ages.
