“Spectacular”
Reviewed October 24, 2013

Lamb Chops & NY Strip supported with Nickel & Nickel fine red wine.....fantastic. Service was discrete and efficient. The addition of black berries with the lamb jus was just the right balance :)

“Phenomenal”
Reviewed October 23, 2013

I don't normally write reviews, as nothing I have is usually that impressive, but we had such a GREAT experience at Rusty's and I wanted to share.
My husband ordered the bacon wrapped filet, and it was the most tender delicious filet either of us has had before. I was jealous that I hadn't ordered that, until my chicken piccata arrived. I was equally as pleased. The staff was very friendly and on top of our every need.
The place was a little empty, which was surprising considering the experience we had there. Everyone visiting Clearwater needs to take a night to have dinner here. You won't be disappointed.

“Breakfast good, service not so good.”
Reviewed September 23, 2013

At a conference, breakfast buffet on the last day. I must say the buffet food was good. Bacon cooked perfect, nice selection of fruits, hot and cold cereals, pastries, hot foods. Our waiter was extremely inattentive though. Could not get coffee refills (he just seemed to forget ....three times) and then when we finally did, it was so hot from being on a warming burner so long. Also seemed he wanted us to do buffet as he all but took our menus away and pointed to the buffet.
As I see other reviews for dinner being better, I hope that our waiter just had a bad day....

“Great prime rib buffet”
Reviewed July 25, 2013

The prime rib buffet was very good! The salad bar, side dishes were also tasty.
The restaurant had an excellent family meal deal which included the buffet plus beverages for 49.95.
