“Mediocre food, over bearing security presence ”
Reviewed July 6, 2014 via mobile

So we ate here for lunch and asked our server what was going on later that night. They said that they would have a DJ and it turns into a club later... cool. We would give it a go. Flash to the meal: started with nachos, then we went for the ribs, pulled pork, and brisket sandwich, (at our servers recommendation) since they were smoked right there. The ribs were tough. The pulled pork was good. The brisket was amazing. Best brisket sandwich I've ever had. Nachos were good but they're served on a dish right out of the oven, so once they're set down, God help you if you touch that plate.

As far as nightlife, the DJ was mediocre, the cover over priced, drinks were expensive (it is a tourist spot, so i guess thats to be expected...) and the security presence was borderline alarming. I really felt like they were looking for reasons to kick people out... but I guess that's their job.

“limited menu”
Reviewed July 5, 2014

This place is probably great if you are drinking on the patio but the menu was limited and just mediocre quality at best.

“Do not believe what U read on-line.”
Reviewed July 4, 2014

Went on Blue Mountain Events Calander and for 01JUL2014 it stated and still states "
5pm-close 50cent wing night & DJ at Rusty's". We that was far from the truth. We asked server and he knew nothing about it, so asked a manager and were told that special is on the Blue Mountain Website not the Rustys's website so sorry 50 cent wings will not be happening. Felt sorry for server because we were not the only one's asking but they should honor specials posted on Blue Mountain as they are part of Blue Mountain.

“Expensive but tasty”
Reviewed July 1, 2014

We had a great lunch at rusty's. Food choices are so good-heavily southern influenced... Crab cake burger was delicious. While it was a pricey lunch it was well worth it. One recommendation- the bison burger is not worth the $20... Our son had the kids burger which actually seemed larger and was equally as tasty!

“Bouncers are Creepy and on a Power Trip. Not worth the $10 cover! Stay away!”
Reviewed June 24, 2014

I went to Rusty's with a group of 6 girls last Saturday night for my friend's bachelorette party. We were forced to wait outside for more than 15 minutes even though it was clear that this bar was NOT at capacity. Once the bouncer finally let us in, we each paid the $10 cover and then walked to the bar to grab a drink. Within literally 5 minutes of being at the bar, a tall man dressed in black approached the bride-to-be's younger sister (22 years old) and said to her "you need to come outside with me alone." She responded "I'm not going anywhere with you." We then realized that this guy was a Rusty's bouncer. He claimed that his manager told him that she was "too drunk" and needed to leave. The thing is that she was not drunk at all and we have no idea why she was targeted. Did the bouncer mix her up with someone else? Even if she were too drunk, the bouncer who let us in would have stopped her from entering. We weren't going to let her go alone with this creepy bouncer dude so we all ended up leaving. The whole thing was totally ridiculous. We were there for all of 5 minutes! My friend's younger sister was very upset because she felt like she ruined the night even though she didn't do anything wrong! The bouncers at this place are on some kind of power trip. I will not be going back to this bar and I will certainly tell all of my friends to STAY AWAY FROM IT! What a terrible experience!
