I'm Belle Bonny, and this is the Muddy Rudder. I'll tell you what I tell all the fresh meat. Don't start anything down here or I`ll have Brock kick your ass.

Belle Bonny

The Muddy Rudder is a bar located in Rivet City's lower deck.


Belle Bonny says she has owned and operated the bar for thirty years, since 2247. [1] It is guarded by Brock the bouncer, who gets into fights frequently with Sister.

Trinnie, Tammy Hargrave, Brock, Sister, and Butch DeLoria (after Trouble on the Homefront) frequent the place.


There is a pool table on the top floor and a couple of chairs with Brock guarding the door. On both sides of the top floor are staircases that lead to the bar. Downstairs is the muddy rudder itself, there are a few tables with random miscellaneous objects and food items like iguana-on-a-stick. All the way in the back of the bar is a locked door (very easy lock) to Belle Bonny's room which has a few beds and footlockers with some food items.

Notable lootEdit

  • 31 shot glasses, the highest amount in a single area in the game.


  • Following the Trouble on the Homefront quest (regardless of how it was completed), Butch can be found here. He will join the player in their adventures if they have neutral Karma, otherwise he will tell them that they don't have what it takes to be in his "Gang".
  • Trinnie will disclose the location of Belle's 'stash' after giving her 25 caps for drinks (done by giving 5 caps 5 times).
  • Belle's stash is under the first bed on the left. It will be empty unless Trinnie tells the player about it.


The Muddy Rudder appears only in Fallout 3.
