Anhthu N., who reviewed it on Nov. 8, wrote, "You absolutely have to check this place out! Not only the food is delicious, but the live music is great too! I highly recommend the beer can hen. The pork chop was also good, but personally think it's on the dryer end. The drinks are decent, but I didn't try anything wild on the menu to know. Overall, it's spacious and beautiful."

Erica L. said, "This is the best place in town. Great atmosphere, very open, friendly staff, delicious food/drinks and live music!"

The Rustic is open from 11 a.m.-midnight Monday-Thursday, 11 a.m.-2 a.m. on Friday, 10 a.m.-2 a.m. on Saturday, and 10 a.m.-midnight on Sunday.
