The Rusty Nail is the best place for a birthday gathering. The wings are the best around and you get your age in wings for free! They are starting to deliver now which is even better!

Been there over 10 times for birthday parties. They provide, free, one wing for every year. The wings have always been fat and tasty. Great, friendly and attentive wait staff. Good beer and atmosphere. Haven't had any of their other food.

We had a family party and ordered wings from them. Not only were they delicious but the people were very accommodating. I don't live near The Rusty Nail and didn't realize they were having a huge pre Super Bowl party so the place was packed...More

KW was visiting and we needed a place to watch the Pats game. The Rusty Nail was highly recommended. Typically when a parking lot is full and the end of the regular football season is on, one wouldn't expect to find a seat at the...More

We were looking for a new place to watch the rest of the game and enjoy a beer and some wings. We were not disappointed at all. Everything was delish! I love a rare burger and it isn't often it really comes out rare. It...More

No strings attached. They do not take reservations. You can walk in and wait for a table. The deal is only good on your birthday, make sure you bring proof!
