“Unexpected Treat”
Reviewed July 22, 2014

While visiting Clarksdale and staying at the Shack Up Inn, we ate several wonderful meals dinner and brunch at Rust. The meals were excellent, traditional Southern food with interesting and excellent improvements on the foods that I've grown up eating. Highly recommend.

“Unfortunately Rust is closed until further notice.”
Reviewed April 23, 2013

Those of us who live in the Delta will have to say goodbye to the closest best tasting restaurant in the area. Their phone number reports that Rust is closed until further notice. Rust will be missed for its Delta-style service and food - slow, friendly but not intrusive, tasty.

“Nicest thing about the experience was the fries green tomatoes and even that had a long hair in it.”
Reviewed April 17, 2013

We arrived shortly after 8pm. We waited 5 minutes to be seated in a place that had only a handful of patrons. We finally just picked a table. After another 10 minutes we were finally noticed. Our drink order was taken I asked for sweet tea. I recieved unsweetened. When The waitress took our order. And disappeared 20 minutes later we got our drinks. Our order fried green tomatoes. Kc sliders and a burger. Not a fancy order you would think. A good 30 minutes later. The tomatoes arrived with the extra addition of a long hair right on top. A good 40 minutes later our food arrived. Mine was a nice tepid temperature and for it being a BBQ sandwich quite lacking in flavor along with heat. The waitress did not bother to check on us during the long bouts of waiting I had to stop her and ask for a refill on my tea. I specified sweet. She brought unsweetened again. After a long wait after our meal. I finally. Gave up hope and went and asked for the check and a carry out box. It was delivered. We waited for them to return to get our money. Finally taking it to the bar ourselves. For all the hype and the cost this place was a joke on quality, service, and appeal. Over 2 hours of my life wasted.

“Decent food, some dishes way overpriced.”
Reviewed April 12, 2013

Decent food here at Rust, some dishes are way overpriced however such as the steaks. The bar staff and Manager are very friendly and welcoming and it's a great place to hang out at the bar. One of the better places for wine by the glass.
