Visited with a friend who wanted a quick bite. Reviewed this site previously. We had wing appetizers, burgers this time. Only problem was there was only one server that evening, and the place filled very quickly after our arrival. Will return.

Whether you seek a weekly brunch spot or a night filled with libations, live beats, Rustik is your one stop shop for a good time. Simply put, Rustik's beer selection is outstanding. With IPA's, microbrews, rotating draft lines, and a large selection of bottle beer from around the world, you're sure to find a beer that pleases your palate. Set in Brooklyn's eclectic Bedford-Stuyvesant neighborhood, blocks from Pratt University, Rustik Tavern offers something for everyone. Its plush couches, fireplace and brick wall laced with 70's music memorabilia creates a nostalgic atmosphere. Add our impressive bar selection and sophisticated American eats and you have a living room away from home. Our TV screens are always on your favorite game and our patio is open year round. Looking for a good happy hour? Check us on Tuesday - Friday from 4 - 8PM for special deals on cocktails, wine and draft beers. Lunch specials run 11AM - 4PM where you can get a burger and a beer for $12. "Live music weekly", is Rustik's mantra. Rustik hosts some of the best local talent that Brooklyn has to offer. Rustik pulls its live band pool from many different genres of music. Rock, R&B, jazz, folk, hip hop, reggae, and soul, Rustik has it all. So grab a seat and stay a while...slow sippers allowed.
