It was nice. I’ve eaten there before and have always enjoyed it. Usually I always order the rib eye and I did again on Easter Sunday, however this time I was a little disappointed at how much smaller my cut of steak was than previously. But it tasted good and the rest of my meal was good too. The rest of our dinner party seemed to enjoy their dinners.

Went for Easter Sunday brunch. Our server Krista was excellent - very friendly and attentive. The fish special was excellent as were the Chicken Parm and salads. The overall meal and service exceeded my expectation. will definitely go again the next time I am in town

We enjoyed our Easter brunch at The Rustic Kitchen. The menu selection is interesting. Our waitress was very pleasant and efficient. The atmosphere was relaxing. Our food was overall
good but my Broccolini was too hard and difficult to cut. Some prices of the entree's were reasonable but a few were too high.

We only order certain items from there never changing menu. We do not recommend ordering steak unless you want to send it back over and over. Once in a blue moon a filet may come out perfect but i would not bet on it. We love there salads and the fish is always great.

You can never go wrong with Rustic Kitchen. We have dined there many time. Great food, attention to detail, and excellent service. Had the Sea Bass special with Risotto that was outstanding and a generous serving of fish that was cooked perfectly. Cant wait to go back.

Not as expected . I have been to Mohegan 3x and had anxiously wanted my family to try Rustic. The talapia dish on friday was excellent because we don't eat meat on fridays, but the baked rigatoni dishes was dry. The spaghetti and clam sauce lacked flavoring. Maybe it was an off day for Chef. But when you're paying a good dollar for it, you don't want that to happen.

Didn't like my waiter at all thought she was rushing me With ordering our drinks I asked her what kind of bun came on my burger she told me it's nothing special so I asked is it from your local grocery store then she said it's from a bakery after that she turned it into a bad experience. Not to mention we spent $81 plus change not happy at all

The food was absolutely incredible and was absolutely perfect for a celebratory trip. The servers were attentive but didn't hover. I would recommend this place for anyone but specifically for a romantic date night it hit the spot. The sangria was amazing, baked mac and cheese I actually forgot my left overs and regretted it for the rest of the weekend. My boyfriend got the burger and said how it was also very good. Ambiance was perfect, amazing find!

I was very hungry and looking forward to a nice hardy meal. So, I ordered the chicken parmigiana. I was very disappointed with my meal choice. It was a generous serving, however I did not enjoy the dish. I found it to be pretty much tasteless. My husband ordered the pulled pork sliders, as well as a skewered antipasto salad, both off of the happy hour menu. He did enjoy his meal choice. If I returned to this location I try a different dining venue.

The food (pasta) looked that it was prepared hours before we placed the order. It was too salty. They replaced my wife's pasta with a chicken salad but they didn't bother to ask me if I want anything else. Took long time to serve our food. Very disappointing...

Food was excellent as usual. However I was very surprised when the bill came and it was 25 dollars for Fish and Chips. We go here all the time and we know the prices are higher but that was ridiculous for what you got. Makes me rethink my next visit. It was an off the menu special so I didn’t know the price. It makes me rethink my next visit. I could have gotten the same meal for 9.99 at Molly O’Sheas which is 100 feet away down the hall and gotten more fish. I know this because my wife got it the prior week at Molly O’Shea’s.

We had same server for dinner as last year same time. She was excellent on both occasions.
