I would say there is nothing special about the food. It is located on-site of a hotel but I think they are overpriced and underwhelming.More

Our group of 4, not staying at the hotel, chose's Rusty's Bistro based on TripAdvisor reviews as an alternative to other beach-adjacent places that were either already booked or wouldn't take reservations.

Thank you for trying Rusty's Bistro and leaving us your review! We hope to see you again and please note that Saturdays our buffet features crab legs with more seafood options but still includes the prime rib of beef as well.

The differentiation was our server- Roberta. She is charming and made our breakfast experience wonderful. The breakfast food was delicious and this spot is above great within the hotel property.

Breakfast buffet had lots of choices and was reasonably priced at $15.95 per adult, $6.95 for ages 6-12 and free for 5 and under. Our waitress was amazing, super friendly and polite and interacted nicely with the kids.

Thank you for your review! We appreciate your feedback and are very pleased that you enjoyed everything. Our bread pudding is my personal favorite right before the New York style cheesecake with berry and mango sauces. We hope you come see us again soon!

Overall, the food was good. The portions were small. Bigger problem- wait time. 40 minutes after beverages, we put in our orders. Then waited another 40 minutes for the food.
