Dusty's Wine Bar Ratings and Reviews
We don't get to the Lansing area that often but when we do, we try to carve out time to dine at dusty's. we started with the frites. The combination of garlic confit and garlic aioli made them garlic-ly delicious. The filet, potato croquettes and fondue spinach made for a great main course. The strawberry panne cotta was the perfect light desert finish.
Sunday brunch was very enjoyable! The brunch menu included just a few specials, but our selections were well prepared, as were the cocktails.
To start, I chose the Bellini Martini, a perfect brunch drink. One of my tablemates chose the Mimosa, and while tasty, it was the smallest Mimosa we had ever seen!
My brunch consisted of two small crab cakes, each topped with a perfectly cooked poached egg and served with a couple of sauces and several pieces of bacon (which in my opinion were totally unnecessary). My tablemates each got the "hash", which they seemed to enjoy, but not as enthusiastically!
The restaurant was not very busy this holiday weekend, but the server was quietly attentive to our needs. Our coffee cups and water glasses were always filled!
The reader should understand, that when it comes to Dusty's, locals set a very high bar for performance--and Dusty's rarely disappoints.
My husband and I went to Dustys to celebrate our 48th wedding anniversary. It was quite easy to make a reservation for dinner online. There was a large graduation party on the porch in front, but we enjoyed a quiet, pleasant dinner in the dining room. The potato bacon soup and field greens salad were tasty. We both had beef; my tournedo could not have been more tender and Tom enjoyed the pub steak. We could not comfortably order dessert, so our server dressed up the usual brownie bites with whipped cream and white chocolate. It was a very special evening.
Dusty's has lost that special something that lured you back time and again. The food quality has become inconsistent and some menu choices don't make sense for the area. Drinks also are inconsistent and generally unimaginative. Stick with wine rather than cocktails and you'll enjoy yourself more.
We made a reservation for our 6th anniversary, and were pleasantly surprised when we got there and the host acknowledged it! Then the waiter also told us Happy Anniversary when he got to our table. The food is very good; however, the waiter was so busy he forgot to bring a couple things and there was a period of time when we didn't see him for a while. We love the cheese fondue, and we got it with fries this time. The dinners are a little pricey, but they taste fresh and the atmosphere is very romantic. Overall it was a lovely experience, and we will definitely go back again.
Upon entering, Dustys has a cool shop with a huge variety of wine and beer, cheeses, desserts, and gifts. We loved looking around the store after our dinner! Our server was friendly and knowledgeable, the only reason I didn't give 5 stars is that he was quite slow. The food options are interesting, a bit over priced in my opinion. My husband had a $55 dry aged steak and it didn't impress him. The pork was a bit dry, at $36 I would expect a very juicy flavorful pork dish and it was neither. Regardless, our wine was delicious, we enjoyed the ambience, and would go again. It's a unique place. I would definitely like to check out their Tap room.
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.
