We went with friends on Saturday night. Terrific food and...not sure if the previous reviewer got out of the wrong side of bed or not...it was clean and with excellent service. But, oh my, it was like going back into the 1970s! Pull out the...More

This is the most disgusting place I have ever eaten a meal at, ceiling tiles are crawling, smells like cigarettes, windows blinds are covered with dust. Very outdated. I needed a beer! Oh wait no little kings in stock, ok. I still needed a drink...More

This is an older restaurant but the food is absolutely over the top. Everything they serve is absolutely delicious. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who wants a great meal.

We have eaten here many times. The food is always good, and cooked to order. The atmosphere is laid back and there are many family that come here. The decor is a bit dated but we think that adds to the feeling of the restaurant....More

We went to Rusty's thanks to a Groupon and were not disappointed. Excellent Italian food; in fact, the best eggplant parm I've had in years! Our waitress was excellent with a good knowledge of the dishes, very friendly and prompt with service (almost too prompt...More
