Reviewed March 3, 2013

We ate at Rustys twice during our stay at the Sheraton. On both evenings the food was good, and service fine.

We went here while visiting Clearwater because the reviews were so good. We were not disappointed. One of the top meals I've had in my life. Great food and service.

“Can't wait to go back!”
Reviewed February 17, 2013

To be honest, our meal got off to a bumpy start because our first waiter ignored us for about 25 minutes. (I asked a simple question about meal preparation due to a food allergy. He left to 'ask the chef' and never came back - but continued to serve the surrounding tables.) Eventually, at our request, another server took over and everything was brilliant from that moment on! When (not if) we return for another dinner at Rusty's, we will request Ryan to be our server! He was outstanding!

The food was phenomenal! The crab stuffed shrimp with risotto was one of the best meals I've ever eaten! The ambiance is great; there's a musician playing nice background music. Loved the decor!

I don't think there's a dress code. Rusty's is located in an upscale beach hotel so I think it's a little more relaxed. Most diners were dressed nicely but I saw one guy in jeans and sneakers, and another in nice shorts and flip flops. Personally, I would feel uncomfortable dressing so casual but it seems to be cool and no one is judging.

We cannot wait to go back!

“A Culinary Experience”
Reviewed January 27, 2013

My friends and I dined twice at this restaurant, and both times indulged on the Steak and Cake. We went on "Steak Night", and received a glass of wine with any steak purchase, so that enhanced the experience. I recommend the bacon wrapped filet mignon and crab cake. You will be complimenting the chef, I assure you.
