It wasn't much to look at but it was really good food. It looks like a typical bar so I wasn't expecting much from the food. I was impressed. Staff was very friendly too. Nice spot for a good lunch. Barbecue was impressive too. I'll go back again for sure.

First off this is not a family establishment, you must be 21 to enter. Second this establishment is not smoke free, I am a nonsmoker and I was not bothered by the smoke. Now for the important stuff this a hole in the wall neighborhood bar and grill with GOOD Food and GREAT BURGERS. It is a place where you're... More

I stopped in to wait out some heavy rain and even heavier traffic on Druid Hills Road. I hoped to spend more than an hour but the noise level from the people in the bar was too much to tolerate. There was so much shouting and laughing, that I thought there was a trivia game going on, but it was... More

So The Rusty Nail has been around like 41 years in our neighborhood..a true neighborhood bar, cold beer and good food. If your visiting Atlanta, and happen to be staying at the Doubletree, Hampton Inn or Red Roof on North Druid Hills Rd - it's worth the stop - old style neighborhood bar - I recommend the BBQ Brisket Sand...

Enjoyed great burger for lunch today. Wanted to try something else as daily specials sounded good but was reluctant to skip burger. Really cooked nicely. Excellent taste and reasonable price

I was a little skeptical that this little "hole in the wall" bar would have decent food. I was expecting the normal run of the mill re-heated bar food but I was pleasantly surprised. Their Chili Cheese Dog is one of my favorites. The Burgers are also very delicious. It has become a local favorite for me and my co-workers.

Hands down, one of the best burgers EVER! Cooked perfectly. Medium rare is just that. Medium well is just that. Top that with great fries and excellent service, oh and COLD beer, what's not to like? Well.....there is one thing. It gets quite smokey. Cigarette smokey. I still endure the smoke when I need a burger fix, but prefer to... More

Had lunch here. Not much for appearance but that's not an issue for me. I agree with others it is smokey and I really don't like that. However in spite of smoke, the food and service are so good that it gets a top rating from me. I believe they have the best burger I have ever tried. I got... More
