Fine dining without the pomp and circumstance! We were greeted warmly even though we were a bit under-dressed. We were seated in the bar while waiting for a table in the main dining room, but after we discovered that we could still order off the menu in the lounge AND watch some football, we opted to stay in place. The... More

The minute we walked inside this quant restaurant we were greeted by a beautiful young lady named Semmes, the owners daughter! She led us to a great corner table with some of the most comfortable chairs I've ever seen in a restaurant. Our server, Kim immediately offered to get our drinks and brought us some homemade sourdough bread fresh out... More

Have been here many times. The atmosphere is somewhat casual for a "fine dining" experience, but this is Meridian; no need to wear a suit to eat here. I have hosted dinners here for my employees, invited friends from overseas to eat here, and taken dates here in the past. I have never had any complaints from my guests. Service... More

Loved it....the atmosphere was wonderful. Good selection of wine. Would go back even thought the prices were high because the food was worth it.

Lots of people in the area rave about how good this place is, but we found it to be sub-par. The dining area is broken up into sections that makes you feel abandoned. The wait staff treated us as inferior even though we have dined at many fancy restaurants much nicer than this one. The steak (which is supposed to... More

I have now had meals here at least half a dozen times. There is not one single thing I have found here that is not delicious. It is spendy but worth it.

Its hard to beat The Rustler for steaks ..... anywhere ..... ! Their sourdough bread is out of this world!! When you drive up just remember the old adage about not judging a book by its cover! If you don't, you'll be so thankful you didn't.

Went to dinner with my wife. Was very excited to eat here, but could not have been more disappointed. The service was good, but the food mediocre even if they slashed the prices in half. Both of our steaks were burnt on the outside with one being ordered medium and the other medium rare. We heard another table complaining and... More

We stopped in Meridian on the way to the beach, to break up the trip and celebrate my daughter's birthday. Boy are we glad we did. The steaks are fabulous, and they come with sides and salad. No a la carte business. I am a steak snob and was truly impressed. The service was prompt and courteous. You can say... More
