AN unexpected surprise, judging from the location you wouldn't expect much. Inside this is a 5 star restaurant that easily puts all other dining options to shame in the area. The perfect place to go for any special occasion!

The food and service is great the only problem I have is the hours they are open, I wish they were open for lunch.

Best steak in Meridian! Filet mignon is cooked perfectly and I am hard to please! Start with the tuna Napoleon. Dips are quite spicy to my palate… wedge salad with homemade Blue cheese dressing is terrific! Bartender is great… Makes a terrific martini! Ask for Mark by name and he will take care of you! Waiters/waitresses are very knowledgeable and... More

Here's the thing. The Rustler is not in a typical place that many people go to get a fine dining meal. It can be a little difficult for a first time visitor to approach. Do not let this stop you! The team at the Rustler consistently provides first class service and a great meal. When you enter the restaurant you... More

Love the atmosphere . It took over an hour and a half to get our food and it wasn't even busy . The waitress was nice but saw her only twice. Waited on our ticket for thirty minutes . It wasn't even half full . The steak was really dry and very little season.For the money we won't be back.

A special new years dinner with family. Great salad and food. Perhaps the steak was a bit above medium, but had a wonderful flavor. Many places today are afraid to serve a hot potato to customers. Many I have tried lately would not even melt the butter. "Not fun." Hats off to the Rustler in Meridian for a hot spud.

We go to The Rustler often and our meal is always fantastic. The quality is exceptional! The portions are very generous and the meals come with a salad and fresh bread. You will not leave hungry. We like the atmosphere, it is cozy. Our usual waiter is Adam Hicks and he is fantastic! He is very professional and knows his... More
