I've been a patron of Dusty's for decades, and since I live out of town, a make a point of going in at least twice while I'm at home. The store, the bar, the food, the staff; it's all superb. I wish it was closer to where I live!

We enjoyed a good Lamb Shank meal. It was paired with grits, but decided to ask for a substitution. My wife had whipped Sweet Potatoes and I chose the Mashed. Server could have been more attentive, but she was OK and earned 20%.

My son lives in Lansing and took us there last week. A little pricey but all was worth it. Outstanding food and service. Baleigh was our server and she was on top of her game and very friendly! Our drinks never got below half and a dirty dish had only a few seconds on the table before being nabbed. Salads... More

Kind of hidden in a strip mall, this is a great local favorite, a bit up market and not cheap, but quality is worth it. Very good wine list for midwest, and well prepared entries. Soup or salad is included in main courses. Service was very good though a bit slow, so don't plan on being in a hurry.

Have been going to Dusty's Cellar for over 25 years, and it has been consistently good. They have offered several of their menu selections for all of those 25 years, and they, too, have been consistently good. Their menu is neither inspirational nor creative. Over the years we have enjoyed many good meals there, with excellent service, and find ourselves... More

I love going to a wine bar when the wines are not overly priced and the food is great. My taking my daughter to an MSU college tour we had dinner there. The host and the wait staff were very friendly. The wine menu is good and far reaching and everything appears to be priced two times retail which is... More

I do not understand why the community of Okemos keeps getting fooled by this place. I will give them they're huge wine list but the quality and especially the service is way below average. I would never tell a guest no or I can't do that. For being rated the number two restaurant in Okemos I would think that saying... More

The entrace to the restaurant is through the retail wine store. Found a great Pinotage. Lunch was quick and tasty. There were so many things I like it was hard to choose.

Such delicious food! Scrumptious twists on some our favorite classic meals. We are sensitive to a lot of restaurant food, but we left feeling great!
