“Best pasta I've had - delicious!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2013

My husband & I went for lunch on a Saturday - started off with the anti pasto plate - delicious, I had entree ravioli with pumpkin & burnt butter sauce - fantastic. Husband had the mussels & said they were very nice & for the beer lover they have a tasting range of four beers they brew. Great service, great food & nice atmosphere - would go back in a heart beat.

“Good service and good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2013

Very welcoming staff and great ambiance. Visited with wife and 2 kids, 2 & 6 yrs old and the menu had something for everyone. Variety of kids meals was good and quality excellent. We ordered the pie and parmigiana which were excellent and very ample portions. Great variety of beers, would recommend the tasting paddle and the dark toffee ale. Will definitely come back on the next visit.

“Great food. Great staff and quite relaxing place.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2013 via mobile

Had a great dinner here. The service was top notch and our waitress gave us time to relax and look throught the menu before ordering. Drink list was good. Not a wine drinker but the had a separate menu for that and have a somewhat weird choice of beer all good looking too. Food was excellent and was not waiting ages for it. Perfect timing between starter to mains. Defo worth a look if you enjoy good food and a quite place to relax.

“Fabulous service for 2 families”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

We went to Rusty's over Easter, 2 families, and had a great time. Booking and changing time closer to the daye no problem. The service was so good with so much attention, kids getting colouring sheets. Food was fresh and yummy and good sizes. Pint tasters, and wine choice was enough for us. Would go again next time for sure.

“YUM”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2013

Hubby ordered their home made meat pie and I ordered the grilled barramundi and it was beautiful. The fish was cooked to perfection and the meat pie was full of flavour. Would definitely go back there again.
