Have eaten here a few times and food is always very good...service is a little slow most times but I guess that is to be expected when getting the quality of food that is expected...will continue to return ...

I don't think they take reservations, but they do have buzzers to alert you when your table's ready. The seafood is extremely fresh, and perfectly prepared in the Louisiana styles. Teh seafood gumbo starter was also excellent, and the bustling, friendly atmosphere and an array of excellent beers on tap make it a happy discovery for a visitor, and a... More

A friend suggested we try Rusty's mainly for the fried green tomatoes. We set our GPS and had no problems finding Rusty's. We had a small wait as we got there at 6pm on a Friday which seems to be a prime time. Seated and had tea within 10 minutes. Service was good and order prompt. Tomatoes were great as... More

This seems to be the spot the locals eat, and it didn't disappoint. Also, one of the few restaurants that doesn't close at 9. Our food was fantastic. Loved the Alligator bites!

We were in Vicksburg and checked tripadvisor for resturants. We decided to try it. We were there around 5:00 pm and had to wait a short time. It was well worth the wait. We tried the green fried tomatoes w/crabmeat sauce. It was goooood. I had the grouper and shirmp. It was great. Loved everything about this place.

My family and I had a great experience at this restaurant. There were 5 of us and we all had different entrees and each dish was delicious. Tonight's special was a flounder dish stuffed with crab meat. The fried green tomatoes are a must and the desserts are amazing! The service was perfect and the prices are reasonable. My wife... More

Based on all of the other reviews, we decided to dine at Rusty's while visiting Vicksburg. The food was good but certainly not great. We shared several items so we could sample a good portion of the menu. Nothing was excellent or what I would consider "to die for" but it was good. I suppose it's a popular place to... More

Great food. Service was okay, maybe a little slow and we weren't there at lunch...more like 2:30 in the afternoon. A little pricey though.

I guess I just expected too much from all the rave reviews. It wasn't crowded at all when we went for lunch and we were seated within five minutes. I was looking forward to some really great southern food, but what I got didn't live up to the reputation or the price. I got the blackened chicken sandwich, which was... More

Great seafood fare! The food is fresh, service is top-notch. Sometimes a little slow to get seated but otherwise a great choice. The fried green tomatoes are INCREDIBLE and I don't even like tomatoes! Neat downtown area next to museums, riverfront, splash pad / playground for kids. Parking is sometimes a challenge and they're not open Mondays.
