If your looking for the freshest seafood this is the place for you! Everything we had was delicious and great portion sizes. Our server Erin was extremely friendly and knowledgeable with the menu. We had the fried shrimp that were perfect with just a dusting of breading and also the fried clam strips. We will definitely be back!

I visited Rusty Bellies recently with my wife and friend. Had the crab cake sandwich with chips and a salad. The crab cake was moist and tasty, one of the better ones I've ever had. The service was fantastic. Big shout out to Irene. Adorable personality. Overall, an excellent lunch and experience.

This is, honestly, one of the best seafood restaurants ever! The grouper is super fresh and cooked to perfection! Our server, Kelly, was really excellent, too. She was kind and patient with the littles one, made recommendations and took great care us. Thanks for an awesome experience!

We were seated in a 2-person booth, right next to the bartender. Very uncomfortable. We both ordered Mahi, thinking it would be fresh...it's a seafood restaurant, after all! It was terribly dry and flavorless. We were very disappointed in the entire experience. When I told the manager, he gave us a card for a free appetizer on our next visit.... More

Great experience. We sat outside on a rainy, cool day , but they had heaters outside at the Tiki Bar. We had a GREAT waiter named Ty, who was fabulously personable. The fish dip is fantastic, as was the homemade sangria and Key Like Pie martini! Will come back!
