It looks uninviting on the outside but it’s fun, country looking decor and great individual homemade bread & soup. Very yummy.

Unlike others, I was not impressed with the prime rib. Bread was good. Salad was weak. I might be willing to try breakfast. Was not overly impressed with dinner.

A fun place with good friendly service and good food, especially if you like Prime Rib p their specialty. Old fashioned decor adds to the experience.

This is a great family owned restaurant in a very smallllllll town. It's worth the trip with great home cooked food and fresh bread. Went to celebrate a family members birthday & all 6 of us were very happy with our different meals. No complaints.

The Rusty Lantern has the best prime rib in the entire region, and I've looked high and low for great prime rib.

Prime Rib is their specialty and they do not disappoint, we ate there on Valentine's Day so it was busy but there was no delay in getting any service or food. If it is a special occasion, make a reservation. The desserts are awesome!!

Although its not too easy to find, its worth stopping in for friendly atmosphere and fabulous pies. Try the elderberry-raspberry pie and you will not be disappointed.

Was recommended from friends. Was not disappointed. The chicken fried steak was great. So was the bread. I had heard a lot about this place but only today finally made it in to eat. I have nothing bad to say. Great!
