Went to Rusty's on Sunday and they were so very busy. But everyone that was working there was very helpful and they smiled the entire time. After a short wait we were able to get a both right by the window. Rusty's is a really unique restaurant that is decorated in such a way that you are constantly looking at... More

I have coming here since I moved into this area about 11 years ago. The only times have been even slightly annoyed was when I had to wait a little bit to be seated. But there is a solution for this. Don't go there brunch time on the weekends. (Duh) The last time I was here one of the bus... More

I have to say I had not been to Rusty's for several years (food was always good, but decor became very run down looking and service was lacking). I decided to give them a try again on the advice of family members that said they had improved since I had last been there. I was looking for a non-chain restaurant... More

They had fast and friendly service especially on Mother's Day! The food was really really good and they kept our coffee pretty well topped off. I would go back again despite the fact it looked like Grandma's house with all the antiques and collectables, but it was kind of neat.

Took my husband there. Went back 3 days later with the kids (cause it was sooo good). After great and quick service with awsome food, my son said to me: "mama this is the best food ever" Before we could finish the kids were already plotting the next visit as was I. :) Thanks Rusty's!

Stopped for breakfast on the way thru town. Had the pork chop breakfast . The food was good and the portions generous. Even though they were crowded, the service was quick and the wait staff kept my coffee topped off. Good value

Quaint Western-Eclectic atmosphere. More seating inside than one would think from outside. Diner/Café food. Went for breakfast. 4 adults, full breakfast with coffee, $28 plus tip. You can't beat that and the servings were huge. Staff kept out coffee hot and waters full. Corned Beef hash was excellent!

Thank Lisa S
