We had a grouper sandwich (broiled) and a shrimp po'boy. Both were delish. The complimentary hush puppies were yummy. We finished with the Mississippi Mud - very rich and tasty. The restaurant is very casual. Would definitely go back.

Very disappointed in our latest visit to Rusty's- food was average at best- we started with appetizers - fried green tomatoes and mozzarella cheese sticks-I wouldn't order the tomatoes again- the sauce tasted like mayonnaise- heavy and bland. For dinner, I had the Coconut Shrimp- it had been sitting a while before it was brought to the table- the sauce... More

I had the oyster poboy and my husband had the shrimp poboy. Both were excellent on great French bread. The reason I didn't give Rusty's 5 stars was because of the service. We could see our order under the warmer for 15 minutes or more. Our server was nowhere to be found.

This is a cute little restaurant right across the street from the Mississippi River and a large docked steamboat also named the Mississippi. Great seafood! Great southern cooking. VERY relaxed atmosphere. Family friendly. Great service!

Was driving thru Vicksburg and stopped at Rusty's after seeing all the reviews and expecting great food. We were well ahead of the lunch crowd, but it still 45 min for the food to be brought to the table. The seafood pasta was bland and so was the balckened grouper. The service left much to be desired. Overall a waste... More

When we first entered, we were not sure whether the food would be good but we were pleasantly surprised. The decor is no frills, but the staff is very helpful and friendly, the selection of entrees is excellent - loved the gumbo, the crab cakes and the shrimp, particularly since the grilled option was offered.... Nice to see the locals... More

Had a nice visit with the family. We ordered drinks and food. The blackened Caesar salad was great, my husband had the catfish lunch special which was also very good. The place had a nice atmosphere and even though they were busy it wasn't too loud and we were able to have a conversation. I'll visit Rusty's again.

My wife and I were told about this lively eatery by some local shop owners. The atmosphere is very casual, jeans, hats, shorts. Greeted at the door by the friendly hostess, we only had to wait 10 minutes for a table. Reservations were not needed on this busy Tuesday night. Amazing selection of sea food, fresh daily. Three different preparations... More
