Dusty's Wine Bar
Service and quality of food has dropped over the years . In my opinion its went from a 5 star restaurant to best a 3 star .
Pleasantly surprised at what a good restaurant Dusty’s is. We moved to East Lansing about a year ago and passed Dusty’s many times. Someone told us it was very good, so we thought we’d give it a try. We will definitely go there again
Delightful evening, good food and great service.
Food was very good and I enjoyed the option of the wine flights. Definitely recommend stopping by Dusty's Tap Room for dessert and a drink for a more casual scene with great neighborhood vibes.
We had an enjoyable late afternoon dinner after attending a matinee at the Wharton Center. Great food and great service. Overall a great experience.
This please is outstanding on all levels. This was my first dinner back in about 5 years and it was even more amazing than i remembered.
Finally, get the espresso machine!!! I am told it is broken for years
Great visit this time, good atmosphere, our waiter was outstanding. Wonderful food and wine!
Excellent service was fantastic
Menu never changes and is over priced.
Tap room next door is much better.
Dusty’s is our favorite destination while visiting East Lansing and MSU. Whether you want to eat light or enjoy a full meal the food, ambiance and service are always great, especially when they know you have a game to make.
Went to the restaurant for New Years Eve dinner. Had an amazing experience! Would highly recommend for a nice dinner.
Brought friends from overseas. We all enjoyed the luncheon selections and the efficient service.
Would love a choice of Palozzolo raspberry sorbet on menu.
Very nice menu with excellent preparation. This was a delicious Christmas Eve meal of cold-smoked swordfish with chimichuri and smoked chicken. Unfortunately, appetizer came after dinner salads.
Christmas Eve Lunch - Great menu with plenty of variety in flavor combinations. Everyone at the table was pleased with their food. Excellent service. A meal at Dusty’s is always part of the visit home for Christmas.
My second time there. Super slow (but friendly) service both times. The place needs to be updated. Reminds me of early 80's. Food was great.
We have dinner here as a family every year on our family Christmas shopping trip. It is a favorite and a tradition. We usually pick up some specialty candies on our way out. Very good, consistent food
We often choose Dusty's for a special but casual meal and are never disappointed.
We were pleasantly surprised by a coordinated effort between our children and the Dusty Cellar wait staff to arrange for a surprise celebration for my wife and I who were out for the evening after my wife had just been awarded her PhD from MSU. Outstanding service and food and most enjoyable evening!
Our first visit to Dusty’s won’t be our last. Food was delicious and the service was great, including the timing of delivery of the courses. This was an anniversary celebration and the staff made it a special occasion.
The food is excellent but the restaurant is very noisy so it is difficult to have conversations. In addition, the service tends to be slow, so make sure you have lots of time.
Dusty’s has slipped over the years. The menu is tired and in need of an update.
Good food, service and experience I would definitely recommend.
My wife and I chose to go here for the first time for our anniversary and we were glad we did! Truly great meal and they brought us our a dessert with 'happy anniversary' written in a raspberry sauce. It was a special night and we will be back for sure!
After game dinner
Loved our first experience at Dusty’s we will be going again , the food was amazing we loved the wine flights ! Staff were really friendly and helpful it wa any hubbys birthday and he was made to feel special .. see you again Dusty’s!
It was my first time there and was extremely impressed. Our sever was excellent and the food was great. Will definitely be back.
Made the reservation and noted it was for an anniversary. Were quickly seated, which was nice and appreciated. The table, unfortunately was terrible. Shoved up against a wall it was more like an after thought then a comfortable spot. Service was slow and food was average. Not worth the high cost and would recommend looking elsewhere for a more suitable special occassion restaurant.
Our server was outstanding! Do not remember her name, but she was perfect. We had a great meal, and will be back.
I've lived in the area for nearly 20 years, and am somewhat ashamed to admit I had never been to Dusty's. We're not "wine people" so that's probably why. However, I decided I waned to take my wife out for brunch someplace nice and Dusty's kept coming up as a recommendation, so I made a reservation. Overall we were extremely pleased with the food. My seafood Benedict was the stuff of legend, and I cannot wait to come back to order it again. My wife's Huevo's Carnitas were quite enjoyable, even if the potatoes were a bit on the plain side - they were cooked, but a nice bit of burn on them would have made the dish perfect. Our server was attentive, but not overbearing and the ambiance for a late morning Sunday meal was perfect. We'll be back.
Dusty's has always been a favorite of ours but not anymore. Our dinner Thursday was memorable in that it was such a bad experience. The restaurant was busy (6P). The bar area which is small was super crowded with people having a good time and lots of drinks, a fairly young group at the bar. Very loud, boisterous, lots of laughing, just as it should be in a bar but not in the area which calls itself fine dining. The group should have been suggested they move over to the Tap Room. They weren't waiting for tables for dinner just happy hour. It was so loud and noisy that halfway through dinner we gave up any possibility of having conversation. Everyone was having to shout to be heard which made the noise level in the room headache inducing. Then one of the staff's family came in with 2 small children running around behind the bar being children again, not the place.
Dinner was sub par, we all had the smoked chicken which was just okay, not great flavor and could have been cooked a little longer. Not what I'd expect from Dusty's. I had dinner there a week ago and it was excellent. The restaurant was very busy but the bar was quiet, we had good conversation all through dinner and never had to shout to be heard.
Excellent food options and excellent service. She had a great personality. Very thoughtful. Great time!
Once again - excellent food, service, etc. My friend and I enjoy Dusty's and a chance to chat and eat a delicious lunch. We always order seafood crepes and I enjoy the Caesar salad with anchovies. The service was outstanding and having made reservations, we had a booth which we enjoy.
My husband and I celebrated our first wedding anniversary at Dusty’s and it was beautiful. We enjoyed a gorgeous bottle of wine, the charcuterie plate and the entrees were fabulous. Our server was training another gal and they were so sweet and talented. The ambiance and cozy feel were a welcome surprise since the restaurant is in a sort of shopping center. I look forward to celebrating more special occasions here!
Great, independently-owned restaurant. The main restaurant is fantastic with a really strong menu and the Tap Room next door is the laid back place with a solid bar menu. We've always enjoyed their attention to detail and their service level is outstanding. We use Dusty's for personal and business all the time.
Food is very good and the service is attentive without being intrusive. Great place for any occasion or just a meal with friends.
Avery was absolutely amazing and so was the food! Chefs menu is always inspired and tasty!
Fantastic Restaurant and Experience! Menu was well thought out and creative! Definitely a must visit
Delicious food, great cocktails and very fairly priced wine list. Will be back!
Mr Koboyachi was an outstanding server. He should get a raise
