This place has average food. If I don't eat out on the deck, I'm not going to go here. The deck is wonderful and a great view of the ships as they exit the Jetty.Eating inside is not a treat, not bad, but not a treat for me and my crew.

Went for oysters as usual and had an excellent experience. We each had a dozen oysters, ahi tuna, Buffalo shrimp appetizer and seafood gumbo. Enjoyed it all. Relaxed environment with live music if you don't mind the heat. All staff is very friendly and good at what they do. We are repeat visitors whenever we are in the area.

We prefer Wednesday night when our favorite singer/performer is there from 5 to 9. You can have drinks and listen to soothing tunes as the sunsets. I really like the baked oysters, stuffed flounder, and the spinach salad. It's just a relaxing spot to hang out with friends and listen to some great music.

We had the fish and chips and oysters and neither of us thoroughly enjoyed our meal. The oysters didn't appear fresh and the fish and chips looked like it came from a box. They had a good happy hour of $2 bud lite and millar lite and then $3 IPA they also had a wine special but our server didn't... More

We were there for Mother's Day, so I can say it was very crowded and had to wait 1/2 hour, which was good. Not too bad of a wait. When seated we waited again 15 minutes or so for our order to be taken. (It was crowded and a little confusing). But, the food was very good. Sister in law... More

We went to Rusty's twice during our stay at Cape Canaveral. The first time, we arrived before 6:00 in time for the early bird menu. The selections included fried shrimp and a lunch-size version of the fish of the day. But the early-bird price was still $12. The second time we went my husband and I split the steamed seafood...

My friends and I visit this place regularly for the oysters Bernard. They are damn good. The bartender Blaine is there every time we visit and he always offers excellent hospitality.... the servers not so much so grab a seat at the bar and enjoy the great location. Highly recommend.

Everything we had was great! He had the oysters and I had the surf and turf. They were all amazing. We also ordered the seafood augratin appetizer. It was very good! Our server Lori was very nice, funny, and a great server! Definitely would suggest the oysters from here and ask for Lori.
