Great Beer and Food

Went here with my family this past weekend and we were all very pleased. The restaurant has a great beer selection, both bottle and draft. They even have low cost beer sampling options. We tried the deep fried deviled eggs, and they were really fun. I had a brick oven pizza, and it was one of... read more

From the happy Host to our super attentive server JEFF. Wait a great place for lunch. Hands down we all had something different and the selection of beer and wine was fantastic. I will be back

The place started to get packed but we managed to get a booth. Although it was January, the chalkboards still had ads and promos about Christmas. We took advantage of the happy hour special beers and a couple of small plates and the place was really nice but the noise level got kind of high. Service was okay...we were there... More

Moderate flavors and prices, very personable and friendly service, and fairly quick turn from order to food. I would definitely return for the roasted vegetables and brussels sprouts.

The food was outstanding, the craft beers excellent and the service warm and inviting. A favorite of my daughter and her fiancé, Old Towne residents, this restaurant is a neighborhood gem. The on site parking is also a major plus!

I'm lucky and live close to Rustico and consider this my go to place for great beers. Their food parring are pretty good as well. The pizza is thin crust with great toppings and the burgers have plenty of flavor. The deviled eggs are a great treat to get you started as well. Now the beer. I usually attend all... More

Huge selection of beer, great pizza - though not enough choices. The rest of the menu was enticing although we did not try. Most of the folks in eye-sight were eatinhg pizza. The other food items look pretty good although our table-neighbor's scallops smelled fishy at 3 feet away. Service was slow but they were slammed on a Sat evening... More

We went to this place based on TripAdvisor reviews, and boy..we were not disappointed! We were ravenously hungry after a long morning, ended up here in search of some good brunch. Their biscuit sliders were amazing! They make it without the meat if you like. We tried the asparagus pizza, not my favourite, though I can tell they would not... More

N.B. – This is a follow-up to a review I submitted on Rustico a year ago. My wife and I found ourselves in Alexandria around noon on Sunday … she wanted brunch, I wanted lunch. Based on previous visits, we decided on Rustico. And we got everything we wanted. The Brunching Begonia got French Toast, three huge slices piled high... More
