Steak House

A local place with retired men around the bar. Good steaks (do not make a mistake and order seafood!). Simple decor. Helpful staff most of whom have worked here for years.

One of the best prime ribs I've had, and I have a lot of prime rib. Always cooked to order as well. I travel a lot and when I get home I make a point of eating at The Rusty Fox.

Went there on a Sunday at noon. Waited for ever to be served. Prime Rib was very fatty and a bit over cooked for the Rare Order.. Hometown patrons made up the customers. Salad a little old with little dressing. From order to delivery was 35 minutes. Other in my group orders lacked volume and presentation. Just an average meal.

This place was a nightmare. From the time my wife and I walked in the place, to the time we left, there is nothing good I can say about the place. We virtually had to seat ourselves to start, once seated we waited forever for a drink, then waited that much longer to get our order taken and much longer... More

Overpriced .....quality of food not in line with price. French onion soup is good . Clermont needs some quality restaurants along the lines of del Frisco . Just built another burger joint ( culvers ) and it was a huge disappointment. Burgers dry ,bland and overpriced . Better burger and deal at steak & shake

I wasn't impressed at all after the first few minutes. The booth seat had food particles all over it that I had to wipe off before I sat and the hostess and servers seemed too casual and very discombobulated, talking out loud about who'd be serving our table. Service was also pretty slow and it was for these reasons that... More

I was rather disappointed by the Rusty Fox. it use to be a just good food restaurant. Service was good. We had a long wait for our food with no one in the restaurant. My husband had a filet which was ok. I had the prime rib which was mediocre. they came with one side - no vegetables. I chose... More

After reading very mixed reviews on here I was very skeptical when my in laws selected the Rusty Fox for my mother in laws birthday dinner. We we arrived around 5 pm on a Sunday in a pouring rain; there were about two tables dining and we were seated promptly. Our server was friendly, told us about the specials and... More

Seems they can not handle large parties.... We had 18 people and any hiccups along the way came out of the kitchen, like burnt Lamb Chops, the replacements were on the rare side. We had good service for the gal who served us. My husband said his steak was better than
