John ( owner ) refuses to give me his pancake recipe, they are awesome. I love the banana nut or just the plain. If you try the hash brown omelette you won't be sorry. We come here for any meal.

We recently moved to Monroe and were told this was the best breakfast in town. All four people in our party enjoyed their food. They have some interesting pancake choices - I had one with bacon and sausage inside.

I used to go here a lot but the owner can be crabby and yell and his help which bothers me, The food is good and if he finally stopped yelling it would be a wonderful place to go

I've been going for years because the food is good but the past few times the owners son has been the waiter and he is not so good. If you go, try to get someone else to wait on you. Wraps and fries are yummy!

I had a breakfast reunion with 3 of my former teaching colleagues at the Rustic Grille. The menu is so large, get there early, to have enough time to read it. I have driven by this place many times and never knew it was there. It's diagonally across the street from Robertos Restaurant. I had Eggs over easy with sausage... More

I live in NC but every time I visit family in Newtown the Rustic Grill is the place to go. Their turkey and stuffing wrap is our of this world delicious. The old pictures of Monroe and the friendly staff make every visit a pleasure.

This is a very nice place for breakfast. We are regulars since we like the food a lot and never had any issues with the service, however have seen and heard of complaints from others. Recently they have added a bar which seems it has reduced the number of available seats and increased the waiting time on busy weekend mornings.... More

I stopped by the Rustic Grille on a late Thursday afternoon. I was the only customer, so I had my choice of tables or sitting at the counter. I decided to sit at the counter. After looking over their extensive menu, I ordered the Blazin’ Chicken Salad ($9.55). The salad arrived just 5 minutes later. It was a large plate... More
