Great food and atmosphere. Try the fried green tomatoes with crab sauce. Large portions and great food.

This is a cute little restaurant near the river -- not actually "riverfront" -- with good seafood. It is a bit pricey, though. I had a po-boy and it was one of the cheapest things on the menu (hence the name, maybe??). Most of the plates were at least $15 or more. I'm not sure it was really worth the... More

It started pouring down rain half way through our tour of the Vicksburg Battlefield so our tour was quicker than it should have been. We drove into town trying to find a place to eat and found not much open. (Saturday morning in August!) A man on the street directed us to Rusty's. The service was OK. The server was... More

It's not much to look at, but we didn't go for the inside! The food at Rusty's was the best we had on our entire vacation. The waterfront location makes the trip really nice. Very friendly waitress although she was busy with many tables. The Mississippi mud pie is a must!

New to Vicksburg so here is what was important to me. Neat downtown area...but what appeared to be closer to the edge so much better parking than the rest of the area. Went on a Saturday afternoon...good parking...no wait for 7 people. VERY friendly service! Quick...punctual...professional...etc. Glasses never went empty...never sat wondering where food was. Attentive. 5 stars on service... More

Was looking for a waterfront restaurant, but this was as close as we could find short of going to a casino. We stopped for lunch on a Thurs and the place was packed...but we got one of the last tables without having to wait. Food was okay, but nothing to write home about. However, the dessert, Mississippi mud pie was... More

When looking for a restaurant we pay attention to the number of vehicles parked outside the establishment. Driving by Rusty's at 7pm on a Thursday evening, it was obvious that Rusty's was a restaurant of choice. On entering the restaurant the 'down home' atmosphere and chatter of relaxed, happy diners was obvious. The staff are welcoming and friendly and the... More

The place was so busy that we had to sit at the bar. The service was still good and the food tasty and plentiful. Not the place for a romantic dinner but certainly somewhere to eat good food in a convivial atmosphere.

This restaurant is close to a lot of the museums and attractions in Vicksburg, Mississippi. The homemade cocktail sauce was really great and we enjoyed the friend green tomatoes.
