This place is amazing. Been here several times!!! Can be a little pricey but I feel it is worth it. The place does not look like it would be a great place from the outside but do not let that fool you!!!

Very good food and reasonable cost. Higjly recommend reservations. My only complaint is I had made reservations but our table was right in front of the entrance and it was very cold and busy with all the people in and out. Otherwise enjoy this restaurant .

There are many good things to say about the Rustic. The food, service, cosy dining areas are all very good. This however is offset by the raucous bar and the foul language. We were there recently and the F bomb was the adjective of choice by the bar customers and obviously permitted by the staff as it went on and... More

This place is not much to look at from the outside but on the inside it's very nice. Monday nights are all you can eat crab legs for just over $20.

Food was excellent. Steaks were done perfectly to our liking. The pineapple upside down cake martini was delicious.

My friend had a big 40th party. The restaurant did a really good job with a big group on a Friday night. I enjoyed a nice prime rib and baked potato. The green beens weren't great quality. The salads were nice and very good rolls. This place has a really nice bar also. We enjoyed some rounds of lemon drop... More

We visited here on a Thursday night. Not too busy, and looked like mostly "mature" - meaning old like me! locals. Coming from the Annapolis Md area, we are leery of seafood in south-central PA, but this was great. One had a piece of haddock that almost overfilled her platter. I had haddock with crab imperial. All was very fresh... More

This restaurant was a regular favorite of ours. But over the years they have changed the food they serve. Example: the onion rings have changed no fewer than 3 times. Each time for the worse and obviously for the cheaper. Also the choices for the mixed grill have been limited and overall quality cheapened. Knowing how much I used to... More
