Greeted by host that was not at all happy and polite! He rushed us to a table and the server hurried over and greeted us right away with asking us for our drink order. Wrong drink was delivered and attitude to take it back and...More

We love the cheese curds! Our food comes quickly, and have never had poor service. We go here about 4x per month, as it is our go to spot. New menu items are a plus!!

We were visiting our son and DIL in Fort and they suggested eating at The Rustic. They have eaten there before and liked it, especially the pulled chicken. We were looking forward to good barbecue. Our waiter, Zach, was very nice and attentive. They also...More

I went there last night with my wife. I’ve been a bit jaded since my favorite BBQ joint in Sun Prairie closed up, and haven’t found a suitable replacement since. Hands down the best BBQ in southern Wisconsin I’ve found so far (might be even...More

If you take into account that this is Wisconsin, and not someplace in Texas, the barbecue here is phenomenal (if it happened to be in Texas, I’d still say it would be “quite decent”). The meat is juicy and has a slightly smoked flavor -...More
