Upon recommendation from someone on the hotel staff, I went into Rusty's for a beverage and some food. The place is not fancy, but I got a decent drink and some very good food. The RI Clam Chowder was delicious and the Fish n' Chips was plentiful and very tasty. I will make it a point to come here again... More

Friends of ours stumbled upon this place last week and raved about it. So we checked it out and loved it. It's a local, no frills kind of place. Big bar area as well as lots of tables to sit at. The Bartender and the Cook were super friendly and the food was fabulous! I recommend the NY Rueben Sandwich,... More

Dark, dingy. Got the cold beer I wanted but was afraid to try out the kitchen. Parking is problematic. I think it's definitely a local hangout, perhaps the atmosphere is better when there is someone there.

Rusty's bar in Middletown has a nice attentive staff and great food. Tuesdays they serve up pizza and Wednesdays prime rib and shrimp scampi. My friend had prime rib and I had some of the best shrimp scampi I've ever tasted. Each dish was $7.95! It isn't a fancy place, by any means, but if you can overlook the little... More

We have been here a few times now. Not a fancy place and its a biker bar essentially so if you are an uptight person who doesn't want to mingle with folks of a different walk of life than this isn't your place. I love this place. The food is great and the clientele are very nice. We had the... More
