IMHO, Rusty’s fried green tomatoes are deserving of a Michelin star. The rest of our dinner was good too.

Absolutely Delicious!
We arrived at Rusty's just as it was opening for dinner. I ordered fried flounder with cheese grits and onion rings. I received a huge flounder which was cooked to perfection! The cheese grits and onion rings were to die for. My dinner came with...a bonus of hush puppies, which were so good! My friend ordered a combo platter with shr ... read more

Great spot for a full belly
We made a quick trip for my husband's job and stopped for lunch before heading home. It was crowded - a little too much for my comfort- but the staff and new comers had masks on. The food though was delicious! I had the blackened...chicken sandwich and he had the meatloaf poboy. We split the peanut butter pie for dessert. We did ... read more

Rusty’s was recommended to us by the bed and breakfast that we stayed in, and now we understand the hype! The portions are extremely generous for the price. My husband got the blackened chicken sandwich and potato fries, and I got the shrimp and grits with a side of green beans. Certainly the finest shrimp and grits I’ve had in Missi ... read more

Rusty’s Riverfront Grill is one of the finest places to eat in America. It has food that compares to New Orleans and that’s hard to fine. The service is great! All of the waiter’s are on the ball.

My family is from Texas but anytime we travel we HAVE to stop to eat here. The food is phenomenal, and the service is always top notch (even our most recent takeout order was just as perfect as it would have been sitting in) if I could give 20 stars instead of 5, I would.
