Wife & I decided to watch the cruise ships depart and enjoy a seafood dinner on Sunday, May 18. We opted for Rusty''s at the port. Lot's of construction now going on at the port, so parking our car proved difficult. Happy to report that parking was the only negative aspect of our experience.
We asked to be seated outside on the deck, and had to wait about 20 minutes for our table. We got a seat at the bar and enjoyed two delicious rum drinks. Rusty's calls them Dirty Monkeys. Lot's of rum and real yummy.
Once seated in a shaded area under a pergola, we ordered jumbo coconut shrimp platters. Our food arrived quickly and the shrimp were excellent. Eight very large shrimp, French fries, & salad. The price was a reasonable $20 per entree. We received excellent service .
As we were eating the ships began to leave the port and the visual experience was outstanding.
We have previously enjoyed eating at Fishlips and Grills. Both of us felt Rusty's was the better experience, as much for service, quality of food and drink, and the viewing experience.
PS the French fries were outstanding. They also have a happy hour and an early bird special that was very reasonable. Around $14 for a fried shrimp platter. We didn't take advantage of the specials because we wanted the jumbo coconut shrimp.
