We ate lunch here April 6,2017 with family and enjoyed it very much. The service was great and our waitress was very attentive. We will definitely return again. Family friendly atmosphere.

I have never eaten at Rusty's, so my friend and I went there for lunch. Service was SLOW, a gentleman came in ten minutes after we were seated and got his food before we did, this is a HUGE pet peeve of mine. We ordered burgers and it took 15 minutes to get them. My friend had a chili burger... More

We have ate here several times since they re-opened in their new location after the old location caught fire. We have had breakfast three times in the last month and the food is always excellent and service has always been good. My wife loves the pancakes and I had the Chicken Fry Steak which was excellent. This is our go... More

Ordered two Hot turkey Sandwiches. The turkey was deli meat grilled and made tough by grilling. The gravy was brown gravy. Everything was cold when we got it. The mashed potatoes were real potates and would have been good had they been hot. We would never waste our time and money going to this restaurant again.

I have coming here since I moved into this area about 11 years ago. The only times have been even slightly annoyed was when I had to wait a little bit to be seated. But there is a solution for this. Don't go there brunch time on the weekends. (Duh) The last time I was here one of the bus... More

I have to say I had not been to Rusty's for several years (food was always good, but decor became very run down looking and service was lacking). I decided to give them a try again on the advice of family members that said they had improved since I had last been there. I was looking for a non-chain restaurant... More

They had fast and friendly service especially on Mother's Day! The food was really really good and they kept our coffee pretty well topped off. I would go back again despite the fact it looked like Grandma's house with all the antiques and collectables, but it was kind of neat.

Took my husband there. Went back 3 days later with the kids (cause it was sooo good). After great and quick service with awsome food, my son said to me: "mama this is the best food ever" Before we could finish the kids were already plotting the next visit as was I. :) Thanks Rusty's!
