We have ate here several times since they re-opened in their new location after the old location caught fire. We have had breakfast three times in the last month and the food is always excellent and service has always been good. My wife loves the pancakes and I had the Chicken Fry Steak which was excellent. This is our go... More

Ordered two Hot turkey Sandwiches. The turkey was deli meat grilled and made tough by grilling. The gravy was brown gravy. Everything was cold when we got it. The mashed potatoes were real potates and would have been good had they been hot. We would never waste our time and money going to this restaurant again.

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!

I have been going here for many years. Breakfast is great...... good hometown feel. The waitress I had was very friendly. I will always go back for a good home style meal.

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
