“Fabulous service for 2 families”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

We went to Rusty's over Easter, 2 families, and had a great time. Booking and changing time closer to the daye no problem. The service was so good with so much attention, kids getting colouring sheets. Food was fresh and yummy and good sizes. Pint tasters, and wine choice was enough for us. Would go again next time for sure.

“YUM”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 1, 2013

Hubby ordered their home made meat pie and I ordered the grilled barramundi and it was beautiful. The fish was cooked to perfection and the meat pie was full of flavour. Would definitely go back there again.

“My favourite place to eat on the Island”

Great meals. Not a huge serve but delish. Recommend a meal sitting on the balcony with friends. Very relaxing

Beer made on premises is excellent and the quality of the good country food that was on the menu was good. I would definitely like to recommend this restaurant.

“Excellent!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 7, 2013 via mobile

This place is great. My wife, 3 year old and I ate lunch here and it was the best place we ate in Phillip Island. Good kids menu, honest, fresh pub food - We had the pie and the fish and chips (fresh fish, not greasy - how many places struggle with that concept). And the beer was great too (Pale Ale). Definitely worthwhile going out of your way for.
