    Great dinner out. Food and service was terrific. Afterwards we went next door to the Tap room and had a beverage there as well. We plan to eat there next time since the menus and beverages are different.

    Food and drinks were great. Server forgot our appetizer. It’s a nice, small, dining place with a pleasant ambience. They have an excellent Caesar salad! It could use some updating.

    Everything was perfect! Excellent cocktail, truffle fries appetizer was well balanced and good size for a few people. Little things like the fried capers on Caesar salad make it feel a little different than everyone without being too weird. Skirt steak cooked exactly as requested. Service was friendly, prompt, and very polite. Dusty’s is consistent and exceptional. Our favorite place in Lansing area and one of the tops in Michigan.

    The service was good our waitress was very kind and prompt. We got our food and drinks quickly and she was very accommodating. The ambiance is nice and all and the shop is cool. The food on the other hand was not good at all in my opinion. The cheese penne was quite bland and without any flavor, salad was lackluster, the Burrata was super yucky (and we ordered 2 of the Burrata unfortunately!). The truffle frites were good though. Overall I was disappointed with the food and for that reason alone I wouldn’t recommend this restaurant nor would I return. We even bought some “fresh baked” cookies from the front counter and I was so sad to find out they were stale when we got home!! So lame. Like I said the service was great, no complaints there. The food was bad and really needs some work. We had a party of 7 & everyone agreed.

    This was the first time dining at Dusty Cellar. We would skate come to the wine tasting but always wanted to done. This was the best dining experience we have ever had and we will for sure do it again. Our waitress was very sweet and kind, sure did an amazing job with being patient with us and have great food/ wine suggestions.

    We’ve eaten here several times over the years and the food is often a mixed experience. This time I had the gazpacho, which was excellent, and the mussels, which were very over cooked and so salty that I only ate about half. My husband’s steak was just okay, cooked correctly but nothing spectacular. The drinks were excellent (try the habanero margarita!) and the service was too. I feel like I’d enjoy this place more if we stuck to drinks and maybe desserts, which are also great.

    We celebrated our 5 year anniversary. We started with Spring salads. They were just ok. The dressing had too much vinegar. My husband got a small steak. It was cooked medium rare as requested. I ordered the hangar steak and requested it to be sent back. I asked for medium rare, but it was rare. It came with Parmesan frites/fries. Tasty but a bit soggy. We got the rhubarb cheesecake. Again, just ok. Not sure is we’d go back.

    We eat here often and we’re surprised at the quality this time. We had very slow service (which is not surprising with CoVid related understaffing). But quite a long time before we even received our first drinks. We ordered multiple different meals, but found them bland-the miso chicken, the mushroom stroganoff and the lamb pasta dish. Disappointing considering the price. We look for rich, unique tasting meals and these definitely weren’t that.

    The food was superb, as were the waitstaff. Having made a reservation for a date, I was frustrated to be seated inside the door to the dining area. It was not private or in a secluded area, in addition to being drafty & noisy. We had hoped to shop in the store after dinner but it was closed. Seems like it would be wise to have the store open when the restaurant is as well.

    Food superb as always along w/ great service. So happy to have Dusty’s open again. Truffle Frites a nice appetizer for 4. Green Gazpacho newly added and very flavorful and filling. Could be a meal with side salad. Penne not as good as in past—rather bland when it was flavorful and cheese on top was browned. Roasted chicken a lovely dish. Thank you Dusty’s team for a good evening with friends after Hamilton Matinee.

    I have loved visiting Dusty's over the years. The setting is beautiful, quiet, cozy. Service is still impeccable. The food this time was OK. In years past I remember it being spectacular. I had the Mushroom Stroganoff. It was good, but not the spectacular I was expecting based on past experience. The Caesar salad was not a true Caesar (it had too many ingredients like tomatoes) and the dressing a bit bland. I will still go back. Every place has an off day.
