Absolutely horrible! Dungeoness crab were the worst i ever had some terrible tasting garlic sauce the crab was soaked in along with quarter bowl of water at the bottom all for the amazing low price of $48. Don't think I'll be visiting that restaurant anytime soon.

We tried this restaurant because it was close to our hotel. It is locally popular, casual, a bit crowded and noisy. The men ordered different seafood platters; the quality of the seafood seemed very good but everything was breaded and deepfried. The women ordered green salads and pasta. The salads were good as was the penne with red sauce. The... More

After reading many reviews this sounded like a great place. Very fast paced, quick, friendly service. However, we were not impressed by the food. Ribs were ok, but the crab was greasy and tasteless. We expected much better, considering our meal for 2 was $90. Won't return.

Sorry, but not a good meal for the high price. I had an overcooked sirloin steak with decent shrimp for $34. My sister had king crab legs for $68. Sides were sauteed carrots with no other low carb option. No salad. And the wine was just awful. The cabernet was syrupy. The pinot was no better. The noise level is... More

We always enjoy rustic inn when in FLL. The clam chowder and conch chowder is really good. The tray with the array of crabs are yummy. So much and filling. Highly recommended.

The food is great. Fresh seafood selection from a good menu. Very special environment. Clean Fresh White Paper table cloth... Wood hammers to crack the crabs that become a lovely noise (or music) created by most patrons to celebrate with others a special occasion!!! Quite an experience!

Four of us had dinner here tonight. Mixed reviews. Two were good (stuffed shrimp with crab and another shrimp dish but I can't remember exactly what it was) and two were just OK (peel 'n eat shrimp and fried shrimp). Sides were parsley boiled potatoes (fairly bland and uninteresting), cole slaw (good), and rice (just OK). Portions were on the... More

There were 3 of us staying nearby before leaving for a cruise. Our hotel desk clerk recommended the Rustic Inn. And reading the reviews we thought we would really enjoy our food. It is sad to say that my meal was the best at the table - and I had a hamburger. My friends each ordered shrimp. They both said... More

The food was OK. My wife and I both got the crab and steak. We were told the crab that comes with it was unavailable but that we could substitute any other crab. When we got the bill they added on 10 dollars a person for this! The waitress did not tell us this was the case and the only... More
