I travel for work all the time, was recommended by hotel clerk as great place for seafood. I arrived before the dinner rush, so I did not have to wait to be seated. At first the waitress was very fr...iendly, but once my food was served, the service was non-existent. I didn’t make a fuss about wanting a refill of my drink, got my check, and after I figured I had to go to the register to pay, paid my bill and left.
I had the crab cakes, they were very good. Bigger than I imagined....more than I could eat.
I did leave satisfied and happy I arrived when I did, it was raining, yet there were people in the front porch waiting for tables because the inside waiting area was packed.
I just hope the service was lacking because they were so busy.
If work brings me back to Vicksburg, will probably give this place another visit.

Very happy to find the place as a tourist. Nice people. Not a catfish fan, but if it all tasted like this, I'd eat it. Crab cakes were great in a down-home way. Salad could be a little more intere...sting. From the outside, Downtown Vicksburg needs more of this kind of effort. Vicksburg has the bones for being a great destination. Rusty's puts some catfish on those bones. See More

Rusty’s is one of my favorite places to eat. Been going for years and only had one meal that I didn’t enjoy. It was solely because too much salt was used by the chef. I keep coming back because the fo...od is wonderful and it’s nice to get away from the tricounty area. See More

They were amazing. We walked in with not so high hopes because it was packed and we figured we would be waiting an hour due to the line ahead, but was only 15 mins wait time max. We were sat and greet...ed by the bar tender because we sat in her area and she made a MAGNIFICENT bloody Mary for me. The food prices were intimidating but I promise you they are worth EVERY penny. We ordered the wasabi tuna and Hawaiian chicken for main and spinach artichoke dip, crab cakes and broiled oysters for appetizers. Every single bit of this food was beyond our expectations and perfectly cooked. Too bad there aren't more stars to give. See More

A BIG thank you to Ms. Claudette and the staff of Rusty's for taking such great care of us for our Christmas party! The food was delicious as always and the service was excellent!� Thanks again, the e...mployees of Commerce Community Bank of Oak Grove, LA See More

The trouble nowadays is that new restaurants are set up to seat as many as possible in one room such that the noise level is high and intimacy is low.
It's not that Rusty's is the only one but it's st...ill a situation that I don't prefer.
For instance Anthonys is the same way.
I guess it's the sign of the times.

Great food and people! One small suggestion. We watched a lot of ready plates of food, including ours, sit on the counter while our server was taking good care of a 7 top. No fault of her own but it w...as surprising that not one of her able coworkers ran our food to us.

Here's my suggestion. Either hire food runners or let your servers know that they are a team and encourage them to help each other out.

We had a fantastic time here and would eat here again.

Best steak and seafood in the world to me! I live two hours away and it’s worth the drive just to eat here. Everyone is so friendly! Wait until you see the dessert!

Food was O.K...nothing exceptional. Yeah, fried pickles were good. Service was awful. We arrived at 700PM. By the time we were seated, ordered and served our entrees it was 845PM. So about a 2 1/2 hou...r event by the time we were out the door.
Look at these reviews...same story of poor service over and over.. If I owned this establishment I would be concerned.

We ate here for our wedding anniversary lunch and the food was delicious. I had broiled grouper and scallops and my husband had the grouper with shrimp. Even the green beans were yummy and the Key L...ime pie is AMAZING. Good food and good service - overall good experience and we plan to go back soon. See More

Food was great. Has the grilled blackened fish with asparagus and it was fantastic. Asparagus was perfection in itself. Awesome waitress. We got there a little before 2 and wasn’t sure if they would s...erve us. To my surprise there was a line waiting to be seated and they didn’t turn anyone away until it was 2:00.
Would recommend this place to anyone in the Jackson/ Vicksburg area. It’s woerh the drive from Jackson to Vicksburg

My husband split the Coconut shrimp with sweet potato fries and it was delicious and enough food for two people. The bread pudding was huge and utterly DELICIOUS. The two of us tried to eat the one ...serving but didn't make it thru it. I would definitely eat here again ! See More

Traveling from Dallas TX to Columbia SC. Wanted to find a seafood restaurant in the Vicksburg MS area. Went online and saw your link and decided to visit Rusty's Riverfront Grill. Our experience wa...s top notch and we will certainly visit you again. We will recommend Rusty's highly!

Christy offered wonderful recommendations and was an excellent server, The fried green tomatoes, the Captain's Platter, and the Mississippi Mud Cake were all excellent!! Blessings to you all!

An annual tradition. Rusty's never disappoints. Good food, great service. I can hardly wait to get back. Maybe we can come up with an "excuse" to drive an hour to dinner more than just once a year.

This is our first stop every time we drive through Vicksburg on our way from Tulsa south to The New Orleans area or to Gulf Shores. LOVE EVERYTHING we’ve tried...our favorites are the fried green toma...toes with lump crabmeat...it’s listed as an appetizer with PLENTY TO SHARE...very delicious and quite filling! The gumbo is outstanding chocked full of flavor!!! Oh and the Bloody Mary....Robin is very talented and each sip down to the last drop was superb!!! Highly Recommend RUSTY’s riverfront grill in Vicksburg, MS See More

Service was great! We had 8 people in our party and the wait was reasonable...not very long at all on a Saturday night. We all agreed the fried green tomatoes and sauce are amazing!

Excellent food and good service! The ribeye steak was perfect, I always like the grilled shrimp. The crabcake could have done with a little less filler and a little more crab meat though.

We went to Vicksburg to celebrate my mother's birthday. We wanted a quick, one night getaway for something different and fun. I called Friday morning (7/21/17) to ask if Rusty's took reservations. I w...as told by Stephanie Graves (very nice & helpful) that they didn't take reservations but she could take my name, # of guests and time we planned to come and it would cut back on our wait. Great! We arrive around 6:30 totally expecting to wait 30 or so-per Stephanie's instructions. When we walked in, Claudette (who I didn't know her name at the time) didn't look up, didn't greet us, nothing. I finally said hello to her and told her my name and that I had called this morning to put my name on the list. She looked and me with the worst look and told me they didn't take reservations. I told her I spoke with "Shannon" (because I had forgotten her name at the time) earlier that morning and she told me no reservations, but I could give her my name blah blah blah. Claudette again looked at me like I had lost my mind and told me no one by that name worked there. I looked at my mom and cousin and asked what they wanted to do. The looks on their faces from how we were being treated said it all but we decided to stay despite Claudette's awful attitude. So we put our names on the 45-1 hour wait list and went to the bar while we waited. Much to our surprise, Katelyn Alexander was a breath of fresh air. When they finally told us our table was ready, we told them no thanks and stayed where we knew we would get the service I'm sure Claudette wishes she knew how to give. We will NEVER step foot in that place again thanks to that disgusting first impression!
The catch: Claudette is apparently known around town. The amazing restaurant we went to for lunch asked how our stay was so far and when I told them about our experience last night, they called her by name before I ever got it out of my mouth. Sounds like Claudette needs an attitude adjustment! And a job where customer service isn't what helps keep the doors open.

Heard about this place so decided to try it. Appetizers had little to no flavor. Expensive crab claws and totally bland. Crab cake entree did made up for it. Otherwise I might have rated it lower....
Cokes were heavily watered down so getting a root beer in a bottle was a good alternative.
Service by our waitress I will say was outstanding. She was attentive and did all we wished. She just can't control the kitchen. I doubt I go back.

The food was good as always but there was a table with drunk people shouting and no one seemed to care. They laughed it off. Our waiter kept forgetting things.
