I had the house Cabernet which was excellent. The crab cakes were ok, nothing special. The hush puppies were unbelievably good. The Caesar salad was good, cheese grits were excellent and the blackened redfish with crawfish cream sauce was perfect. My husband and I split these items (we are in our fifties) and there was more than enough for the... More

This restaurant is a typical sports bar. It is NOT on the riverfront and you really can't see the river from the dining area. Food is OK, but not noteworthy. A reasonable place to eat, but not exceptional.

Arrived in Vicksburg after a long driving day looking for a fish meal. Scanned several online reviews and decided on Rusty's. We were not disappointed. Menu offered a fairly broad selection of seafood dishes and tasty desserts. Friendly helpful waitress added to the experience.

Came here on a highly talked about. Not sure if today wasnt a good day. First waiter had the drink orders wrong. Took a few for food. Once we received food, it wasnt hot. Free home made hush puppies where very greasy and cold. The menu options are limited. I chose two-way combo 24.99. Definitely wasnt worth it. 4 shrimp,... More

Rusty's was recommended by a couple of other restaurants. Pleasant walk in the old town area. The staff was very friendly. We ate at the bar to cut down on the wait. The food was amazing, wine selection good and service outstanding.

We chose this place as it was highly rated on TripAdvisor. We had their Chicken Salad. This came with the house salad and Roasted chicken sprinkled on top. It was good and worth the price for a light lunch. Atmosphere was typically southern and the wait staff friendly.

This place is always busy for a reason. The food is excellent with a selection that offers something for everyone. We had soft shell crab and sautéed oysters with a beer at the bar and were completely satisfied with both dishes. Our server was friendly and took good care of us. We will definitely go back when in the area.

Rusty's is understandably a busy place. Their menu is packed with good choices of tasty versions of southern fare ranging from good things that Mama would make to excellent seafood. My favorite is stuffed flounder. I've been there many times for lunch and dinner and always had a short wait which indicates that a lot of people really like this... More

Located in a revitalized waterfront area, the restaurant does not have a great view, but the food is excellent. Not a fancy place, just casual dining on excellent food. One of the best seafood dinners I have ever had. Worth the trip down to the waterfront.

Thank TJAltz
