We had a waiter who was clueless on service. We watched as other tables got impeccible service and we had to beg for refills or attention. The food in our case Fried Oysters, a Fried Seafood platter with Fish, Scallops, Shrimps and more, was wonderful. We also saw the crab plates (they have garlic crab and many other options) and...

If you are going to go to the Rustic Inn, I have two suggestions, go hungry and go casual. I am a pretty good eater, but it took some effort to take down the crab special. It has, dungeoness, snow and golden crab piled on a plate. It's not cheap at $48 but well worth it. The bibb they give... More

It was 6:00 PM on a Saturday when we arrived at the restaurant. The place was packed with customers and remained packed until we finally left close to 11 o’clock at night. They serve a variety of crab dishes and seafood in general. I went for their crabs and I am very glad I did. The food was fresh and... More

Recommended from our hotel to come for seafood. I had the fired shrimp (10 HUGE), which were very tasty, and my husband had the blackened snapper. Both were very good but I would suggest they cut the portion size by 1/3. We don't need that much food!!!! The atmosphere was very rustic, with lots of action.

Visited this place in August. We were staying at a nearby hotel just for the night before traveling again the next day. We were split between this place and another so we went to Trip Advisor for guidance. Must thank all of the reviewers on this site. The inside of the restaurant looks like a dive bar covered in wood... More

This restaurant was recommended to my by the Guest Services host at the nearby Sheraton Hotel. On the plus side, the menu had very extensive choices of seafood and cooking preferences. The fish was undeniably fresh and nicely cooked and seasoned. On the down side, it was expensive: over $72 (pre-tip) for two entrees, one cocktail, and one dessert. The... More

I went with my wife and some friends. I had the Crableg sample. I enjoyed the food and the atmosphere. Great place to eat crab legs and hang out with friends.

We have dined at this restaurant several times and this is the first time I had a meal that should have been returned. Ordered grilled grouper with potatoes and carrots. The grouper was grilled but then the entire meal was slathered in butter (I hope) or some other topping. Why I didn't send it back I still can't figure. The... More
