Dusty's Wine Bar Ratings and Reviews
We hadn't been to Dusty's in a while and thought it would be fun. We had a reservation, but the two ladies at our table in the dining room sat talking long beyond the length of their dinner, so the Maitre D' asked if we'd like the quiet back room or the fully warm sun room. While we might have wanted to tell the ladies to beat it, we chose the back room which was very nice. Our food was excellent. We split an order of haddock croquettes which were absolutely delicious. We considered just having another order of croquettes, wine and dessert, but the entrees were too good to pass up. My husband had a traditional Irish lamb stew which he really enjoyed, and I loved the maple glazed salmon over black pepper grits with green beans. I've had the salmon before and it's always great! I also had the flight of crisp white wines and really enjoyed them. The food is beautifully prepared and presented, delicious, and creative.
I love going to a wine bar when the wines are not overly priced and the food is great. I was taking my daughter to an MSU college tour and we had dinner there. The host and the wait staff were very friendly. The wine menu is good and far reaching and everything appears to be priced two times retail which is fair to me. The food was delicious and there is a variety of specials. Both my daughter and my main entree when presented were like works of art.
If you looking for good food and wine this the place to go. They also have a nice selection of half bottles of wine which you can't find everywhere.
Perfectly prepared meal! The salads & bread were fresh and tasty, our entrees delightful! Two of us ordered the hangar steak and loved it. The other diner in our group ordered the salmon. It too was expertly prepared & seasoned. The hangar steak and creamed spinach was a standout however. Can't wait to come back for more.
My wife and I received a gift card for Dusty's from an incredibly generous relative. We used it to celebrate our 37th wedding anniversary on 2/28/17.
And we could not have been more pleased! Everything from the front-of-house greeting thru the service and every food course was top-shelf. No rush between courses, and everything arrived at the table at the proper temp and prepared as ordered. The quantity of the mussel appetizer that my wife ordered was enormous. My Delmonico steak was as good as any I've had at any of the 'Big Name' steakhouses we've dined at. And our server was attentive, cheerful, and very well informed about the menu. We had no complaints, and we'll certainly return.
We were in a rush but had a great server who was able to accommodate the unfortunate and unexpected situation we found ourselves in. The food was great and the wine flights were a fun and affordable way to experience a variety. The fondue and king crab appetizers were plenty for a pre-show meal for a couple of generally light eaters. Looking forward to returning for a special occasion and to pick up a bottle of our favorite wine from our flights.
We met 2 friends at Dusty's for a birthday celebration and had a lovely time. The food was delicious, beautifully presented and there was enough variety that everyone found something special. Our waitress was excellent--there when we needed her and knowledgeable about the food and wine, but not intrusive. We'll definitely be back!
Party of three. We had mussels and 'pork cheeks' as appetizers. The mussels were very good, as usual. The pork cheeks were tasty but not noteworthy and the dish was rather heavy with noodles and a thick-ish sauce.
For the main course, one chose whitefish, one the hanger steak (medium) and I had the pub steak (medium rare). Mine was very flavorful, enough so that I highly recommend it. I also had a slice of the hanger steak, which was also very good, but I'd had that several times before.
I love Dustys but on this occasion I had made reservations well in advance as it was a special dinner but we were put in an overflow room and my guests did not like it. The service was terrible..it took forever to get get our food and the one lady kept telling the waitress she was so hungry and finally got some bread. I stressed and very disappointed ‼
This time there were four of us. All seemed to enjoy it. We started with the charcuterie plate, which was still just OK, though the cheeses were very nice. I had the local chicken which was very tasty (even though the green curry marinade did not come through).
The blood orange cake with almond was very good.
My wife and I decided to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary by returning to Dusty's Cellar for dinner. We had our first date there in 1991. Our service, the ambiance and dinner itself were as good, if not better, than any we have enjoyed in Chicago, Palm Springs or Charleston. Our host (Name?) and Server ("Zach") were delightful and made our visit most enjoyable. What a pleasant surprise to see that this local favorite has only improved over the years! Thank you, Dusty's, for an exquisite anniversary event! - Roger and Marilyn M.
It was a wonderful evening that we lingered over. The drawback was the room we were seated in was a little cold with no ambiance. We were two couples for an early New Year's Eve dinner. We were seated in the Bordeaux room which was better suited for family and casual dining and not adult special evening out.
This was my fourth visit in about two weeks. This time I tried the smoked pork chop.
It was excellent-full of flavor and juicy. I also had the special salad, beet and baked brie, which was very good. My companions had salmon and whitefish, both of which were reportedly very good. One guest had a cup of bacon-mushroom soup, which he enjoyed.
This is the third time eating at Dusty's in the last ten days but I still enjoyed it! This time I had the tornedos of beef, cooked medium rare. It was excellent. As before I had the mixed greens salad, which was fresh and plentiful with a nice dressing. My two guests had half duck and the salmon and both reported them to be excellent too. I was tempted to award 5 stars for the food but reserve that rating for meals such as I have had at Chez Panisse in Berkeley or Canoe in Toronto.
Still, I was pleased to find reliably excellent quality, which was not the case a couple of years ago.
Appetizer of lamb chops was good with very nicely spiced and succulent chops but sauce was not ideally compatible.
"Half roasted duck" was actually half a duck that was half roasted, in my opinion. OK, the meat was cooked medium rare but the skin was not crisped. It was a rather large duck with plenty (too much) of meat but there was not much else on the plate. I found the sauce a little overly sweet and also, not very well attached to the duck but rather in a small pool on the plate.
From the moment we entered, we felt we were treated special. Everyone greeted us, throughout our dining experience, and wished us "happy anniversary". Our table was visited frequently, but not too much as to interrupt. Timing of meal courses was just right... and refreshing our drinks was perfect!
