Annual family vacation visiting different places in Florida, this year was Tarpon Springs! Chose Rusty Bellies for our final lunch and every dish was excellent! Yummy hushpuppies brought out as a starter while you decide!

This is a great spot, food is good and you can sit outside. That being said, there is not enough seating outside so we have taken it off our radar!

One of our local favorites. The seafood is the freshest and very delicious. My favorite dishes include the steamed peel and eat shrimp... they are gigantic and flavorful, and the stone crab claws when they are in season. The gumbo is full of the 'good stuff'! We also love the outdoor and deck. Whenever we have out of town guests... More

We have eaten at Rusty Bellies more times that I can count and good is always amazing!

We took the kids and had great food and drinks for the adults. We sat outside and saw dolphins swimming by. The kids loved this place.

I made a reservation for 23 people. They were so nice and accommodating! Steph and Joey gave amazing service. All the food was delicious and came out to the table quickly. No one complained, which is a lot to say for our group. Haha! I would definitely recommend for anyone 😊

First off let me say, the restaurant was very busy, this is a tourist area. But this did not stop them from being very courteous and helpful. My wife wanted a table by the window. No problem, they said. No sooner had we sat down, the waitress was right there. She introduced herself and placed a brown bag with six... More
