“Not Impressed, VERY slow. Cool environment though.”
Reviewed October 16, 2011

Great environment, pretty good food, not so good service.

My wife and our children and I ate here last night. We were going to go to Fishlips, but since Rusty's seemed to have a slightly better view of the cruise ships that were about to take off, we decided on Rusty's.
Had the Lump Crap Au Gratin dip for an appetizer and would highly recommend it. For our entree, my wife and I split the baked stuffed flounder, and really enjoyed it as well.

My problem with this place was the incredibly long wait. We didn't have our appetizer for over 20 minutes and didn't get our entree's for nearly an hour. I asked our server if it normally took this long, and she said that they only had three people in the kitchen that night so it was taking a lot longer than usual.

Then she disappeared for about 15 minutes. Someone else brought our food out finally.

Overall very poor service. Maybe we'll try it again some other time to see if this was the norm or a fluke.

“Delicious Fresh Local Seafood & Fun Atmosphere”
Reviewed September 17, 2011

Rusty's is a good example of why I like to give local joints business when I travel. The food was amazing and the atmosphere a great way to kick-off vacation. Fresh and delicious! Skip the chains next to your hotel & go an extra five minutes to get to Rusty's!
