Diner Reviews
  • "My fiancee and I ate here on a Sunday night. We had pizza as an app and it was amazing. It had great flavor and a good mix of crispness and chewy that makes a great pizza in my eyes. I had the chicken marsala which was amazing. It was cooked to perfection. My fiancee had the seafood scampi. Which had terrific sized clams, scallops, mussels, and shrimp. Overall out experience was great. We would return."

  • "I had a great Cobb salad....the only thing I have to complain about is the fact that I wanted to substitute the Grilled Chicken (which was the protein) for Shrimp....I got 4 shrimp, and the bill did not reflect the removal of the chicken, and added $5.00 for four shrimp....so I believe that I was overcharged..since I did not get the chicken....The add on price for shrimp was $5.00 on the menu, but since I did not get the chicken, I think I was overcharged...My opinion, anyway..."

  • "We have been to the Rustic Kitchen quite a few times and the food is always very good. The wait staff is friendly and knowledgable and the service is great. We are never kept waiting for a drink or the check when we are ready to leave."

  • "Overall our dinner experience at the Rustic Kitchen was good. We had 4 people for dinner on Saturday, July 5th. We had requested a quiet table and they did the best they could to accommodate us. It was very crowded and still a little noisy. Our Waitress was very nice . She was very busy and when we requested butter for our bread rather than the bean dip, she forgot to bring it We were not impressed with the bread or the bean dip. We were looking forward to some crusty bread and do not like bean dip.. We got a pitcher of Sangria that was large and very tasty and cold with a lot of fruit. Our Entrees were delicious and big portions. We had Chicken Marsala, Chicken Parmesan and Pasta with clam sauce. Everyone"

  • "Our reservation was for 8:00pm, we weren't seated til at least 8:30pm. They need a little help with the front desk staff. Otherwise everything else was amazing as usual!"

  • "There were four of us in the party. We ordered our meals. When they came out mine wasn't there. Everyone started to eat and by the time my dinner came out the other people were just about done. The waiter hardly came to our table. He did apologize about my meal and asked if I wanted a dessert on them. I said no thank you because I didn't want to walk around the casino with it. I feel I should have gotten money off my bill or free meal. Most likely will not return."

  • "So happy we took a risk and tried Rustic Kitchen for the first time to celebrate my son's graduation from Wilkes Univ. It was a very enjoyable experience for our family of 4. We had wonderful servers (2!!) and the food and drink was excellent! Sorry we found this after his 4 years at Wilkes as we probably won't be in the area again much in the future. Also appreciated the fact that I could make my reservation on line."

  • "Staff were attentive. My husband and I ordered Filet with ($12 additional) grilled scallops. Side of truffle-oil parmesan fries were delicious. Ordered a medium cook on our filets. My steak was perfectly cooked, but my husband's was medium-well. The two scallops sliced in half to appear four were present on each plate--skimpy for the price. Stretching the product required in a seafood dish like this is unacceptable at a dining establishment such as Rustic Kitchen. My biggest complaint--my dish was terribly over-salted. I should have sent it back, but we were eating late and celebrating, so did not complain. The late-night return (same night) for dessert of flour-less chocolate cake was superb!"

  • "Graduation Dinner Party for my daughter- 2 of us Ordered Baked Macaroni & Cheese upon a recommendation - Yuk! - Was dry - overcooked and did not taste the cheese - Politely asked for a box - dumped it in the trash on the way out of the Casino. Portion size was very small and meal was too pricey. Others said their food was good. Never have I paid so much for so little. Will not recommend this place and will not return. "

  • "Mother's Day is not generally a day I would select for dining out because the high volume of diners is challenging. This is the second year we chose Rustic Kitchen for our Mother's Day celebration and we could not be more pleased. We were seated promptly, the service was excellent, special dietary accomodations were cheerfully fulfilled, the food was delicious and we were allowed to dine in a leisurely fashion. We will surely visit again before next Mother's Day; however, we are also certain that this will be our venue to celebrate mom for years to come!"

  • "Rustic Kitchen at Mohegan Sun casino is a great place to enjoy a fine meal served by an energetic friendly wait staff. The fried calamari appetizer is a must have during any visit and the Tilapia Francaise is a delicious entree for those looking for a lighter fare. All in all, Rustic Kitchen is a winning dining experience."

  • "I had a martini at the bar that was excellent (not to strong, but certainly not weak). For appetizers we had the eggplant rollatini and the risotto balls both of which were very good. Received complimentary focaccia bread with some sort of dip which was excellent. My husband had a salad as part of his appetizer which was good (nothing over the top, but not bad). For our meals I had the Mac and Cheese which was excellent (it's very hard to find Mac and Cheese at a restaurant so I had to try it---my husband who normally does not like stuff like that also really enjoyed it). He had the veal parm which was good but a little tough (overcooked?). Portions were very big. So was dessert--excellent and big portion---enough to share."

  • "It was a decent place. Waiter seemed out of it and only looking for people who to him seemed like they would tip well. You can see as we watched him he was not consistent with waiting on his tables. The food was decent, nothing over the top. I had the chicken marsala. It was a bit too sweet which I know it's suppose to be but this was very sweet. Sat on a pile of mashed potatoes and asparagus. "

  • "The Hanger steak was the toughest steak I had ever tasted in my life and the sauce it was served with was not much better. The fries that came with it were very salty, and the relish on top of the fries were not very good. My wife loved her salad with the Salmon, she orders this all the time. I had to return the steak and ordered a hamburger. The manager and waitress was very apologetic. I do love eating at the Rustic Kitchen and will return, but I would not recommend the hanger steak. In fact they should hang it out of their menu."

  • "We had been to Rustic Kitchen twice before for lunch on a Wednesday and the food was fantastic! Unfortunately, this time we had gone on a Friday and lunch was not that great. Our pizza app was very good but our entrees were not. The chicken panini was burnt on one side and dry. The steak sandwich on chibatta had peppers,onions and potatoes. There was no seasoning, the bread was soggy and doughy and the only thing you could taste was potato. The service was good and we will definitely go back but on a Wednesday! "

  • "The kitchen had the temps wrong on the food, my shrimp app came out luke warm, should have been cold,shrimp were suppose to be flavored with lemoncellio but I could not taste any. The cocktail sauce was just flat no sense of horseradish. My hot dish was not warm either bowl was not warm. server was fine did not ask for it to go back as I was in a bit of a hurry but I will not go back"
