“DEEEElicious!”
Reviewed 3 August 2014

We thoroughly enjoyed our meals. The best calamari we've have had. Swordfish with cilantro cream sauce was perfect. And my husbands pork tenderloin great. Service was very good, We highly recommend Rusty's for an excellent meal that is obviously cooked with expertise and care.

The food was excellent. The portion size was large. Service was great! A little pricey but overall great.

“Thank you Tripadvisor...”
Reviewed 31 July 2014

Again, using Tripadvisor we were able to ....based on various reviews... get a feeling of what a place would be like. This restaurant met our expectations based on those reviews. Casual atmosphere, relaxing; too bad they don't have outdoor seating. We had to wait - but not long, service was fast and efficient and friendly. There was a problem with my order - and they fixed it right away no worries. The food was decent and the prices reasonable. We would go again and recommend it.

“Swordfish to die for...”
Reviewed 28 July 2014 via mobile

Eating swordfish 70 years, this was the BEST I have ever had! So says my husband .... Being a landlubber and needing beef, I order a burger and find myself being completely satisfied ! Then the real test .....key lime pie? Can it compete with mine ?????? Well, there it was a draw .....the filler and merengue were the Best ever....but the crust was overdone ....heat too high. Still Delicious ! We'll be back! Oh, and the waiter, Michael????? Very together for a man of such tender age:-)
