Over 400 beers! Tried a Lickinghole Coconut Quad. Wow was it good. Rotisserie chicken was tender and delicious also. Would have it all again. Which is a shame because they have so many other beers and foods to offer! Funky decor, good service.

Have eaten here many times across many years. It continues to serve food that is tasty and well presented. Staff is happy to accommodate guest's requests. This last visit I requested a side of cream spinach even though it was not a menu option, and it was graciously provided.

Best beer menu in many miles and unsurpassed burgers. Really, point your finger blindly at the menu and you will be exceedingly happy. We have been here numerous times on all days of the week and have always loved it.

We at on the patio, which was nice, but it was just on a street, no a particularly good view. We ordered two appetizers, the dried deviled egg and blue... More

Had a large group out for dinner. Good food and a nice atmosphere for an enjoyable evening. Service was good for a large group of people that were like herding cats to get everyone to make up their minds. LOL.

I attend a group dinner at Rustico. We were able to obtain a reservation at the last minute. We ordered several appetizers for the group of about 20. We ordered the tots, pesto roles, pretzels bits and the baked feta. The baked gets was awesome. Everyone enjoyed their meals as well.

It's very pleasant to sit outside at Rustico near Old Town. This is a quiet corner and easy, free parking. Our server, Mike, was very energetic and knowledgeable about the beers, and that's helpful with so many choices on draft or in bottles. I opted for a sampler of 3 Saisons and a Witbier, all on draft and each very... More
