We go to The Rustler often and our meal is always fantastic. The quality is exceptional! The portions are very generous and the meals come with a salad and fresh bread. You will not leave hungry. We like the atmosphere, it is cozy. Our usual waiter is Adam Hicks and he is fantastic! He is very professional and knows his... More

I live in Meridian and have eaten at this restaurant many times. It never fails to have the best service and greatest Steak of anywhere I have eaten before. If you happen to be in Meridian don't pass this place up it is wonderful. The outside of the restaurant is not anything fancy but it is a total different story... More

Don't judge this place by the outside! The food is EXCELLENT! You get your money's worth. You get bread, salad (ask for the house dressing),we got huge rib eyes, bake potatoes, & a vegetable. More food than we could eat. We took another meal home because we didn't want to waste one delicious bite. Our waitress was EXCELLENT also!!! Wish... More

stopped on our way from Dallas to Atlanta and were looking for a nice dinner at a local place. We ran across Rustler and thought we would give it a try. We pulled up in front and almost turned round and headed someplace else. Looks can be deceiving as we found out when we decided to go inside. We stepped... More

Fine dining without the pomp and circumstance! We were greeted warmly even though we were a bit under-dressed. We were seated in the bar while waiting for a table in the main dining room, but after we discovered that we could still order off the menu in the lounge AND watch some football, we opted to stay in place. The... More

The minute we walked inside this quant restaurant we were greeted by a beautiful young lady named Semmes, the owners daughter! She led us to a great corner table with some of the most comfortable chairs I've ever seen in a restaurant. Our server, Kim immediately offered to get our drinks and brought us some homemade sourdough bread fresh out... More

Have been here many times. The atmosphere is somewhat casual for a "fine dining" experience, but this is Meridian; no need to wear a suit to eat here. I have hosted dinners here for my employees, invited friends from overseas to eat here, and taken dates here in the past. I have never had any complaints from my guests. Service... More

Loved it....the atmosphere was wonderful. Good selection of wine. Would go back even thought the prices were high because the food was worth it.
