Didn't disappoint

We got there at the peak of the lunch rush and decided to sit at the bar rather than wait for a table (Hostess said 15 - 20 minutes). I had the gumbo, which was excellent and the grilled grouper salad, which was pretty good. The grouper was a little dry on the edges - slightly overcooked for my... read more

This place has great food, and the locals know it! We got there around 5:20 on a Friday afternoon and got the last table. We had the Cajun Gumbo Seafood, which was wonderful. We also ordered the fried green tomatoes, which was a mistake, because we got way too full! For dinner, we don't ordered Rusty's house specialty, which is... More

The food was good but the service was disappointing. This is one of the more popular restaurants in town so they are always looking for a quick turn around. Choose your time to visit carefully if you want to relax and enjoy it.

After a long morning of travel and not able to check into motel yet, my husband and I were looking for a good local lunch. Driving around saw a few places that did not look very clean, but then drove past Rusty's and decided to give it a try. Was a busy, bustling place for lunch on a Thursday. Seated... More

Four of us dined at Rusty's last week. We all shared the seafood platter, fried green tomatoes, and seafood pasta. All was awesome. Everyone especially liked the seafood pasta. Everything was hot and the service was excellent. Oh, and the bread pudding for dessert was to die for! Just what we needed after a long drive. Highly recommended.

We were in town for a funeral and famished after sitting in traffic for an hour to cross over the Mississippi bridge because they were having a bridge inspection at noon on a Saturday! So, of course, we had about a 45 minute wait to be seated but the service was quick and our waitress was very pleasant. We had... More

This was one of the restaurants suggested to us by the local airport. We decided to try it and when we walked in the first thing I noticed was all the desserts! I saw what was a Mississippi Mud Pie and had to try! Got a light lunch and had the best dessert!! Service was good and not a long... More

On Saturday night the place was packed and I can see why. We ended up sitting at the bar to avoid the hour wait and Robin was our bartender and server. GREAT service by her and great drinks. My wife had the Ribeye which was crazy good and I had the Blackened Grouper which was even better! There is not... More

The place is small but we didn't have to wait very long. Our server Deanna was very accommodating. I had the Two-way Combo - the grilled shrimp and fried shrimp. The food was good but a little to salty. My husband had the shrimp po boy with sweet potato fries, the fries are really good. It's somewhat pricy.
