Very bland flavors, definitely for the older crowd. Seems typical of the restaurants in the area. Decent wine list, nice service, friendly staff.

Rusty's happened to be in the resort (Sheraton Sand Key) we were staying at. Both Breakfast and Dinner buffets are stellar (changed up each day/night). Service is great and can handle large groups easily. Steak nights and Seafood nights are a cant lose proposition.

While staying at the hotel we saw the menu and decided to try it we were so glad we did. The service was excellent and so was the food. We ordered a calamari appetizer that was so good we ordered a second. Everyone loved their meals.
