A trip to Rusty's for a Bloody Mary and chicken wings is a delight. Whether it's secret ingredients or the laid-back atmosphere....always a good time.

Other than the Bloodies, the burgers are quite good and fries were very good. Cold beer, warm fire made for a good night out. Young staff did a great job taking care of us.

If you are looking for a great bloody mary, come here! They are fantastic!! Nice bar and good food. It's in a nice location as well, kind of off the beaten path.

Go to Rusty's if you want a Bloody Mary that you will never forget - filled with groceries. Also, Rusty fixes some great burgers and such. A little off the beaten path but worth the 5-10 minute drive. Check it out.

Stopped at Rusty's on our way up to Minocqua. Do not rely on your maps app to get you here. We had to call and ask for directions. Staff told us that for some reason the app always brings people the wrong way. Best pulled pork sandwich. Kids enjoyed playing a game of pool.

My husband & I frequent this establishment approximately once a month. They have really good bar food...we always order some cheese curds & my husband loves the french fries! The burgers are good, the wraps are excellent..have never ordered anything that wasn't good. They're known for their bloody mary's...comes complete with veggies & a HUGE beef stick. Can't be beat....
