I very much enjoyed my eggs benedict over looking the water. Great ambiance. Good food but served luke warm. Restaurant would have gotten a 5 star if they had more servers to handle the crowd. That would be managements fault as I only saw 5 servers for the whole entire crowded restaurant. Maybe... read more

We had a large group on a Friday evening and the Rusty Anchor was accommodating and attentive. The GM checked on us several times and our servers were great. The food was great as well. Some of our group ate at Quarterdeck and some went inside Rusty Anchor. Even those with discriminating tastes said how good the food was! Dining... More

Fair food, nice ambiance, very slow service. I've been there several times. It is at a Marina, so we have taken our boat there and docked to dine.

A boater's bar with a restaurant. The boating crowd is loud and rowdy. The restaurant is not focused on service or food. The bar scene is the focus. Come to party not to dine.

Went for Sunday Brunch last week. They open at 11:00, we got there about 11:30 and we were fortunate to get the last open outside table. Nobody was sitting inside at that time. By the time we left the inside was about half full. It was a beautiful Sunday morning and it was nice watching everyone get their boats from... More

Had great service and nice atmosphere but way over priced. Had the small wadge salad $9 stuffed flounder, that looked like perch and no taste. We will go back but to hear the band and have drinks.

The service is where "rusty" comes in. Went on a Saturday evening with a group of friends. The live band outside was very good. (Better than the nearby Liberty Tap). The food was actually quite decent, but the kitchen and wait staff are either new or in need of better management. Time management was an issue with food service and... More

While attending a graduation at nearby Fort Jackson, we were looking for a local, non chain restaurant for family to gather. Though it was a bit of a drive we found the Rusty Anchor well worth it for an enjoyable evening! The food was spectacular and service was very professional and efficient! Will definitely make an attempt to visit again... More

My wife and I really enjoy the Sunday brunch. The food is great, the atmosphere is great, the service is great, and the Bloody Mary's are great.
