“Use to be better.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 20, 2014 via mobile

We use to love to go here about two years ago. They changed chefs and changed a lot of items on menu.. I apperciate the fact of grass fed products and gluten free. Yet, the service was ok and the food was ok. For the price we will go elsewhere. They always add too much sauce to things, sometimes less is more. If u bring a salad with a big chunk of iceberg atleast bring something better then a butter knife to cut it. Mixed drinks should be better mixed... All in all I am sorry to say goodbye to rusty moose. We use to enjoy it a lot..

We are sorry to hear that our new menu no longer appeals to you. We change menus for the sole purpose of providing our guests the highest standard of food quality available at the lowest price possible. With that said, you will find our pricing very competitive with the surrounding local restaurants including Longhorn, Remington's and Epic at Northern Quest Casino along with many other similar restaurants across the city of Spokane. We would love to see you back soon. Thank you.

“Looked good on line, but was a disappointment”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 12, 2014

My husband found this on line and we reviewed the menu before going. I was excited about all the delicious options I saw on the menu. However, was disappointed with the food. The french onion soup tasted like it came out of a can, the cheese wasn't plentiful or crusted over the top of the bowl, and it also had an overpowering flavor of sage. The res of the meal was ok, but nothing to write home about. The part that made it so disappointing was that based on the ingredients, the food could have been so much better. We only had a wait of about 15 minutes, but once we got seated, we weren't sure why, as there were plenty of available tables. The service wasn't the best either. The waiter never refilled my water, and I ultimately had to ask. The decor, however, was great.

“Great experience.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 10, 2014

Restaurant is located near airport so visited the evening before flying to Mexico. Great atmosphere and service above average.Food was excellent and overall great experience.
Quite the opposite of our experience at Rusty Moose in Bonners Ferry ID.
Would highly recommend especially if you are already in the area.

“Not Worth the Wait”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 3, 2014

It was about 8pm by time we arrived, the place closes at 9. There were quite a few people in the waiting area and we were told it would be a 20 minute wait. Most of the people waiting turned out to be one large group. There were several empty tables set and ready, but the hostess made us wait anyway, even after the large group was seated. We were tired from travelling and last thing we wanted was a hassle trying to get seated. I guess this hostess is on some kind of power trip or seriously needs some customer service training. After asking twice about getting a table, we were finally seated. The rest of the service was fine, the burgers were ok, nothing special- too much bun for my taste. Fries were the best part, salad was fresh - skip their hand dipped onion rings, those suck. We wouldn't go again, we probably should have just left and went elsewhere as it wasn't worth waiting for.

We appreciate the feedback and apologize you feel this way. We are a very busy restaurant and during busy times, we may go on a wait in our main dining area as to control the flow of the restaurant. Nonetheless, both our lounge and our pantry counter are always available for immediate seating during that time at night. Most importantly, we pride ourselves in our high food and service standards and certainly apologize that we did not meet your expectations that evening.

“Great decor and food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 17, 2014

The online reservations were easy to use. I received a welcome call and was told my table would be available at my requested time. We sat close to the fireplace. Our waiter smiled and looked like he enjoyed his job. The food was of good quality. I had the tenderloin steak. It was cooked perfect. The beer was ice cold. I will return on my next trip to Spokane.
