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

This is a great value for both breakfast and dinner! The buffet and menu options are reasonably priced. The prime rib was very good and the buffet offers enough options. Roberta was great during breakfast service. Would highly recommend this location for hotel guests.

I planned a dinner for 20 at Rusty's in a semi- private room. The dinner and location was perfect, the setting was separated enough to give us the privacy we desired. The wait staff was great, the price very reasonable. The pre-fixed menu offered 3 selections to pick from ( fish, beef, and chicken) and the food was fabulous! I... More

Dined there for the prime rib buffet . Food was excellent, many choices besides beef . Had nice salad bar. Waiter service was real slow , took us over 40 min to get the check and pay the bill.

Rusty's is an upscale restaurant experience with the convenience and instant gratification of a buffet. We were invited to dinner there one night and they were serving everything from dill-butter trout to penne pasta to jambalaya to the best prime rib we've ever had--all expertly done--plus a fresh salad bar, mashed red potatoes, Spanish rice, two soups, rolls, and more....

Thought we would have a romantic dinner but this was not the case. Beautiful dining room with lovely furnishings. Guy on keyboard added a nice touch. Problem seems to be there is a buffet every night so lots of noise from the clientele. You can still order from the menu which we did. We had the filet /crab cake entree... More

I only ate here once for breakfast but highly recommend the egg white omelette. Egg white omelettes are often fairly flavorless but this one was great--had spinach and tomato and a generous side of fruit. I was stuffed!

It's a decent buffet with salad options including standard greens with variety of dressings. also had a fruit salad and Greek salad..... More
