My wife and I used this restaurant four times in the space of two days and found it to be most enjoyable. Although we had breakfast vouchers the buffet breakfast each morning offered a very good selection of hot and cold breakfast items. The evening buffets were excellent value and offered a very good choice.

We sampled both dinner and breakfast options here and it's ok. For both there's plenty of choice all nice and fresh. For dinner the unlimited prime rib is lovely and very tender. There's also braised lamb, sesame chicken and a grouper stew. All very tasty and served with fresh veg and potatoes. The breakfast options are the usual hot buffet... More

We ate here twice during a recent stay. We ended up having the buffet both times and it far exceeded our expectations. The variety of food was terrific and the quality was wonderful. I can't recommend Rusty's enough!

We went one morning while staying at the Sheraton and my honey had the breakfast buffet. He seemed to enjoy the selection and the coffee I had was good. I thought the price was a bit spendy. We also went to dinner one night. My honey again chose the buffet and had prime rib. I ordered the herb/ potatoe crusted... More

This place has the best food I have ever eaten (I often plan my trips around where I am going to eat...I LOVE food). I have eaten here a couple times with the most recent being our rehearsal dinner. The service, food, wine and atmosphere were perfect. We had crab cakes, calamari steak (not your typical fried calamari...way better), Caesar... More

We attended a rehearsal dinner a few nights ago, which had a fixed menu with a few different options to choose from. My husband got the steak and I got the fish and we split both. They were pretty good. Service was what made the experience - everyone very nice and helpful!

We were tired after a long week of the "Orlando Park" life so we tried the restaurant in the Hotel. It was delicious. The Seafood Scampi and the Steak and Cake was perfect. Some of the best food that we've had in Vacation. Martin was our server and very attentive. Knowledgeable about the wine list. I wouldn't wear shorts but... More
