This restaurant has relied for too long on an undeserved reputation. The menu is old, uninspired, and the execution is careless. Often, food that arrives to the table does not match what is described on the menu, substitutions are arbitrary and never an improvement. No one seems to care for even notice. On my last visit, food was either burned... More

Dusty's is the place to goif you are looking for a higher end place to eat. The food is delicious. The serving sizes can be a bit on the smaller size, but you do not leave hungry. My parents are very sensitive to restaurant food and tend to get sick from eating out. This is the only place they will... More

I usually just come here for the desserts and wine. I have not yet had any lunch or dinner there, but I love the selection of wines and experts are always there to help you pin point your taste buds.

We "save" Dusty's for special occasions when we don't feel like driving out of town. It is pricey but the food and service are good. Can't afford to go there often but it s a nice change when we're feeling flush. Not really enough atmosphere to rate the costs.

You can never go wrong with Dusty's Cellar. Everything is great, so don't worry. The staff is very knowledgeable about the food and the proper pairings. Higher end food, so not for those on a tight budget. The attached gourmet store and tap room are also great.

Good service. Excellent atmosphere. The food is fine, but not inspired. The menu is not very creative, and there are some hits and some misses, some good values and poor values. It's worth a visit for the pretty atmosphere.

I've been going here for at least 25 years and seen all kinds of changes (and boy do I miss the gorgeous vineyard mural they painted over). I love the feel, the menu, the acoustics even, the wine lists, the almost unfailingly smart and helpful staff. I tried something different for lunch yesterday (I'm a sucker for their great Monte...
