We ate here twice during a recent stay. We ended up having the buffet both times and it far exceeded our expectations. The variety of food was terrific and the quality was wonderful. I can't recommend Rusty's enough!

We went one morning while staying at the Sheraton and my honey had the breakfast buffet. He seemed to enjoy the selection and the coffee I had was good. I thought the price was a bit spendy. We also went to dinner one night. My honey again chose the buffet and had prime rib. I ordered the herb/ potatoe crusted... More

This place has the best food I have ever eaten (I often plan my trips around where I am going to eat...I LOVE food). I have eaten here a couple times with the most recent being our rehearsal dinner. The service, food, wine and atmosphere were perfect. We had crab cakes, calamari steak (not your typical fried calamari...way better), Caesar... More

We attended a rehearsal dinner a few nights ago, which had a fixed menu with a few different options to choose from. My husband got the steak and I got the fish and we split both. They were pretty good. Service was what made the experience - everyone very nice and helpful!

We were tired after a long week of the "Orlando Park" life so we tried the restaurant in the Hotel. It was delicious. The Seafood Scampi and the Steak and Cake was perfect. Some of the best food that we've had in Vacation. Martin was our server and very attentive. Knowledgeable about the wine list. I wouldn't wear shorts but... More

The food here is good. Not a restaurant I would typically patronize if it wasn't in the hotel. It was convenient when it was raining. Otherwise, we ate out of the property. The staff is friendly and helpful.

Centrally located right off the lobby. Service was fair but we were a rather large group. Buffet price ($15) included drink and tip.

We had breakfast and an evening meal in Rusty's. For both we chose the buffet option although there is also a menu that you can chose from. This is the more formal of the dining options at the Sheraton and comes with a price to match! Breakfast for 4 of us was over $80 which is why we only ate... More
