We found this place on trip advisor and give it the same rating as others - Very Good. The atmosphere was great, service was good and the food was very good. I would go back.

“Rusty's was great”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 May 2014

Our rule on vacation is we cannot eat at a restaurant where we can go at home. This makes us search out a place to eat that's different. We went on a Friday night right at 7:00. We had a 45 minute wait, but we expected to wait some. The food at Rusty's was great, but the service was top notch! Atmosphere was charming. It's nice to see Vicksburg being revitialized.

“A gem of a restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 May 2014 via mobile

Great steaks, salads, gumbo and the desserts look to die for. I was too full to enjoy the desserts but others in my party really enjoyed them. The service was excellent and our waitress did a great job of keeping our glasses full, advising us the status of our meal and just everything you would expect them to do. We were a party of 15 with 6 adults and 9 kids, she split us up into a table for 7 and a table for 8 in order to get us thru quicker and that was fine with us. Their manager was courteous and kept us informed while we waited for the tables. This was a Friday night, so expect a wait, but it is well worth it. We are hitting this place again on our way back from Florida, it's well worth it. Like I said, a gem in the historic town of Vicksburg.

“Good food, good service and reasonable prices.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 May 2014

Ended up in Rusty's after being recommended by the guys in the Coca-Cola Museum and we weren't disappointed. When we sat down at five there were already a few tables eating and very soon the restaurant was nearly full. The local fish and seafood on the menu was imaginative and tempting. Service was prompt, friendly and helpful.

Our food was cooked quickly and served nice and hot. We shared some fried crawfish tails which were very clean tasting, then my whole Maine Lobster. Sometimes lobster can be a bit over cooked and chewy, but not here, sweet and succulent with a generous helping of crab stuffing. Nice crisp side salad and a big portion of potato salad to set it off. My wife decided on blackened chicken and again this was nicely cooked and not at all dry. Finally we shared a large portion of Key Lime pie topped with meringue which finished the meal. The only surprise was how reasonable the check was, good value for good home cooked food. Well done guys.

Next time I'm in Vicksburg I will make sure I have room for a meal at Rusty's.

“Superb Dining Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles 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.
