This one of the best places to eat on the whole of Philip Island. Its a little bit more expensive than you're average restaurant but the meals were stunning and the beer delightful! Make sure you arrange a taxi or designated driver home because these ales are wonderfully strong and filling! You'll be wanting plenty more after the first glass.

While on a visit to Phillip Island, we had a great lunch at this establishment. Their 'handcrafted' beer was extremely pleasant as well. In this day and age the prices were not bad either. We would certainly visit again when in the area.

We have two kids (4 and 7) and the staff were welcoming, friendly and attentive. Food was amazing, mains were pricey but certainly worth it. Excellent wine and beer menu - try the beer paddle if beer is your thing! We had a relaxed, enjoyable time. Colouring sheets and pencils provided; decent food on the kids menu; kind staff used to catering for kids. TEN STARS.

This was our annual Family Birthday Outing (all three males with birthdays within two weeks of one another!). Living down the Mornington Peninsula it is difficult to select another new venue for this enjoyable day together - so Philip Island was chosen and Rusty Water's reputation was known to one of our sons. We had the best time. Not very busy (because of the rain) we received a very hospitable welcome and were immediately attended to with warmth and courtesy. All chose a different item on the menu and everyone raved that "theirs was the best". Steak pie looked scrumptious and my calamari "melted". According to the boys the beer 'paddles' were great.
Thank you to the Staff for making our Birthday Luncheon so pleasant. "We Shall Return". :)
