“Consistently good food; outstanding wine offerings”
Reviewed August 20, 2012

I have dined at Dusty's on many occasions over the past 10 years, with my most recent dinner in August 2012. The food choices are varied and preparation is quite good-not outstanding, but certainly better than most. I enjoy wines and Dusty's offers an exceptional list of wines: domestic and international and of great enjoyment are their various wine flight offerings. I noticed during this visit that Dusty's is also offering single malt scotch flights. Dusty's is always busy and the weekend evening when I most recently dined, I found the wait staff to be lacking-whether from lack of skill or inattentiveness, I am not sure, but I was certainly disappointed. Perhaps the waitstaff have difficulties understanding requests and orders due to noise: Dusty's is a lively place and is a bit noisier than desired; however, the responsbility of the waitstaff is to understand orders and requests-whatever the noise level and to be attentive to their customers. Dusty's prices are a bit high, but I am comfortable at the pricing levels given the good quality of food and preparation. Even though excellent service was really lacking during my visit, I will consider this to be an exception to Dusty's usual fine service.

“Local Fav”
Reviewed July 9, 2012

Waitstaff very versed on food and wine. Not your run of the mill standards. A bit pricey but great food. Best key lime pie I've ever had.
