We decided to leave after the coffee was served. To me it’s a sign of what’s to come. Coffee was not fresh or in any way acceptable.

After reading good reviews on Rusty’s Bistro, we thought why not. After dinner we thought why did we. I get with COVID 19 their will be adjustments that were made. But still total food performance was just okay for dinner. We stayed at the resort...and figured breakfast. Mistake number two. For $55.00 you best bring on your best. Breakfast at Denny’s would of been the same for a lot less. I gave this 2 stars because of the service by the waiter at dinner. Seemed the only part that was good.More

Had a bit of trouble finding this due to google I guess so double check. Solid place, good food, good service. A step above typical beach joints like Thorny's, Frenchy's, etc.

Nothing was memorable about this meal. Everything was average including the service, decor, ambiance and the food. This is not someplace I would go back to.

Great food and service. The waiter was on top of the table ready to serve. Great recommendations from wine to dessert. Ordered the Burrata which was a variation of the typical burrata. Good choice if you like cheese. Rock shrimp pasta, great choice and light...but tasty option Close the night with a NY cheese cake that was in the right point.More

This was a favorite during our two week stay on Sand Key. Had the Seafood buffet one night and it was really good, just too much food for me. The Grouper with mashed potatoes and sautéed spinach was really very good, as was the Scallops...and Shrimp Scampi. My son really enjoyed his Wagyu burger. We all enjoyed the bread with the dipping sauces and butter. Price was reasonable for what you get and the service was excellent. Music on Saturday night was very pleasant and added to the experience.More

I ate at Rusty’s Bistro twice during my stay at the Sheraton Sand Key Resort. I sampled the Mediterranean risotto with artichokes one night and the lollipop lamb chops and a Caesar salad another. Also vanilla creme brûlée with fresh berries for dessert. Everything was...delicious and service attentive. I highly recommend Rusty’s Bustillo to anyone staying at the Sheraton or Sand Key/Clearwater Beach area.More

Visited for a Dinner for a Business Meeting. I saw all reviews, exceeded my expectations. The service and food was so good. The meeting went very well. Going back very soon. Clearwater Beach, Sheraton and Rusty's Bistro great.

Rusty’s Thanksgiving buffet really good in all aspects. Turkey, roast beef, fish like mom would make along with all your favourite sides. Desserts will keep you smiling all the way home. If you can’t make mother or grandma this is worth it for a happy...day.More

We have a prime rib of beef buffet available on select evenings. The prime rib of beef is also a part of the Saturday evening buffet but only features seafood on Saturdays.
