The food menu here is small but dependably tasty. There are very few options for a vegetarian and nothing substantial for a vegan. We ordered the fish with a Caesar salad which was excellent. The bread basket had wonderful warm white dinner rolls. The special offering here is the extensive cocktail and wine menu. I plan on returning some evening... More

If you are looking for a little twist to your basic meal and a nice relaxing dinner this is the place to try. The wait staff was excellent. We each had a different type of steak, both cooked to perfection. The seasonings were different than other places but a nice change and very good.

Tried to have a meal on the pub side. Ordered food which still didn't come, even after an hour waiting. There was no explanation from the waitress, who expressed her clear disappointment that we were not drinking alcohol (ordered pop). Eventually, we walked out. Done with Dusty's!

We love sitting at the small bar - kind of feels like home! Matt Rhodes and his staff do a wonderful job providing excellent service and delicious food. Recent menu changes have revitalized their fare and the wine selection, while great, can be kicked up with a trip to the store adjacent and choosing your own bottle.

It was our first trip here since the change in chefs/management, and I was happy to see Dusty's is still Dusty's. We had a nice pinot noir and the Hanger Steak entree was as tasty as it always was. Love the chopped salad. We also had the coconut fried shrimp appetizer and that was good. Love the dipping oil for... More

This restaurant has relied for too long on an undeserved reputation. The menu is old, uninspired, and the execution is careless. Often, food that arrives to the table does not match what is described on the menu, substitutions are arbitrary and never an improvement. No one seems to care for even notice. On my last visit, food was either burned... More

Dusty's is the place to goif you are looking for a higher end place to eat. The food is delicious. The serving sizes can be a bit on the smaller size, but you do not leave hungry. My parents are very sensitive to restaurant food and tend to get sick from eating out. This is the only place they will... More

I usually just come here for the desserts and wine. I have not yet had any lunch or dinner there, but I love the selection of wines and experts are always there to help you pin point your taste buds.
