“Superb Dining Experience”
Reviewed 20 May 2014

We stopped in after exploring Old Rodney, MS and it was well worth the 60 mile detour. We arrived just after 6pm Saturday night, our wait was about 5 minutes. The Spinach & Artichoke Dip was wonderful and the sweet bread was delicious. We ordered the 12 & 16 oz Ribeye and I can honestly say it was the best steak we have had in years. They were both seared and cooked medium to perfection. The service was excellent and you definitely get great quality food that is well worth the price. As we were leaving I noticed the benches inside and outside were full of people waiting for tables.

“Very good lunch”
Reviewed 16 May 2014

Stopping in alone for lunch, I chose to sit at the bar. This was not a problem at all; I had a very good meal and friendly service.

Although my fried catfish and garlic butter green beans were superb, I thought the meal fell short of excellent because it seemed incomplete. I am not from Vicksburg or Mississippi, but I am from the South, y'all, and I am accustomed to enjoying some kind of bread with every meal. With fried catfish, I am likely to have hushpuppies and cole slaw. I had neither at Rusty's. Fish on the board and no cole slaw! In fact, not even a slice of lemon appeared for my iced tea or my catfish until I requested it. Odd!

“Great spot for good food”
Reviewed 14 May 2014 via mobile

We stopped at Rusty's on a trip from Dallas to Atlanta. We didn't mind the 3 mile drive from the highway. Right around the restaurant the downtown area has been restored. We had a 20 min wait for a table, so we walked to the railroad station and read about the ship dry docked across the street.

Our waitress was great. Fast, available, and quick to bring things. The food was tasty, for the most part. My husband enjoyed the Hawaiian Chicken, but it was a tad on the dry side. I found the crab cakes to delicious. We both had a side salad which was very fresh. My son had a cheeseburger, but thought it was just ok. I saw the portion sizes on other dishes, especially the pastas, and they were huge! Everything was sweetened. Butter, rolls, onion ring batter, etc.

Bathrooms were clean, too. Overall, great service, good food. I don't know how it compares to other restaurants in town, but the fish options make this THE place for seafood.

“Great lunch experience”
Reviewed 14 May 2014

We were in town for a day of visiting the Civil War monument and stumbled across Rusty's. Everyone inside seemed to be local. The seafood and the salads were excellent. Enjoyable experience
