Most confusing burger I have ever eaten. Visited on a Tuesday late afternoon. Not busy. Seated immediately. 10 min wait for waitperson. Bacon Bucket Burger: this burger was a feat of flavor removal. It looked good. The textures were correct. I could not taste bacon. I removed some and it straight. Tasteless. I also did not taste meat. So I ate a chunk by itself. It tasted like boiled bland burger. Zero flavor. Codwich: fried fish was crispy and and normal for bar food. They left off the tartar sauce. In all the sandwich was extremely average. Fries: looked crispy, but were squishy. Not sure what they intended. I enjoyed the bright seasoning of aromatics (mostly onion), but mine was drowned in seasoning to the point that the salt burned my tongue as I ate.
Good food - Great service by Tanya. I had the Cuban. Could only eat half of the. huge sandwich . The mac & cheese was very good. She had the fish & chips, also large portion. The strawberry shortcake dessert we had was also good. This was our first visit here and we will go back soon !
There was about a 30 minute wait which wasn't too bad. Ended up sitting outside. Heaters, fans and screened in area. Anthony was a great waiter. He didn't come by every 2 seconds and didn't ignore us either. The fried pork tenderloin sandwich was fantastic.
First stop after getting into the area. First person who sat us never came back with another menu or with answer to some of the board items being available on a menu or having to go inside to read. Our server was very kind and good check ins
Rusty is good place. Has its good and bad. “The beer wall” basically a menu on the wall is hardly impressive as 99% of the list comprises of mass produced grocery store beers. (Greenbench, St. Pete was probably the only sought after brewery on the list) . Apps were great. The sirloin chili was one of the best I have had. Perogi is great as well. For main course I ordered the Cuban. It was good. I mean does not come close to Old’s Havana in Little Havana, Miami, but I was not expecting that. However, it’s definitely top 5 Cubans between Sarasota to Tampa. We also ordered the Power Bowl Chicky Chicky Bowl, let me just say that the ingredients were great, but the bowl lacked flavor. Overall great ambience to the place. I will probably come back for that Sirloin Chilli. Thank you.
