Stopped in at Rusty's for a fish fry and it was as good as in the past. The fries were very crunchy but good, they reminded me of shoe string potatoes. They do have a menu for someone who wants something other than fish although...More

This is always a must for Bloody's when I am in the area...I seriously think they may be the best bloody I've had. Food is good too. Great lightly battered cheese curds.
