Found this spot by accident while driving by. We had just eaten lunch so we stopped in for a drink and to check it out for a future dinning spot. It's a local's place serving Italian food. The staff and bartenders were very friendly. Like mentioned before, it may be a bit hard to find but definitely worth stopping in.

I can't wait to go back and try a different dish. The only thing that I would suggest is install some two... More

Food is very good and well priced. Portions are generous. Large deck over looking the river for summer dining! Favorite dinner is chicken piccata.

Salad was fresh and chicken was grillled perfectly and delicious. We ordered garlic bread but I would not order it againas the bread was more like a hot... More

Originally we drove past it because it doesn't have a big sign just "RRR" on the door. Glad we found it. Food was DELISH and service was excellent! Will come back!

After a long walk at the Lost River Gorge, we happened upon Rustic River. The food is great, patio overlooks a beautiful scenic spot on the river, the wait staff is friendly, knowledgeable (we have gluten free people in our party), and accommodating. This will be a new regular spot!

The food here is amazing, from pizza to fried clams. Fried clams I say ? Yes, the owner Rich brings all the seafood, fish clams ,etc. up fresh every Thursday. His chef is amazing. And the fried clams ( if they don't run out by Saturday) are the best ever. All of his dinners and the pizza is out of... More

Went to the Rustic River for dinner tonight. The décor is truly rustic and very laid back. We got to kick back and not feel rushed. The menu was varied with great shell fish, pizza and the meatballs are as large as I've ever seen. Everything was done to perfection. The wait staff was so pleasant and fun. I think... More
