Testimonial Beth


  • Our waitress was very friendly and made great recommendations on what to try. Our food was PHENOMENAL! I also tried their caramel apple pecan pie and it was to die for and my husband loved the chocolate treats he got! Thanks so much for the great experience!

  • Best pie in MN! The Rustic is amazing! Great dining atmosphere and incredible gourmet food! Don't let the simple rustic look fool you it's 5 star food. Onion ringsare epic as well as all lunch and fine dinner offerings.

  • Another great meal with you guys on our spring family vacation. Thank you for always being the best meal on the North Shore breakfast lunch or dinner.

  • Rustic Inn is so good that you will have certain times on the weekend that it's pretty busy - it's popular for a reason = great food, and great folks serving you! Honestly, it's worth the wait if you hit a busy spell.They have a very welcoming, cozy setting, and the food is fabulous and well prepared. But the number one reason you should stop there - they seriously have THE BEST pies on the North Shore (move over Betty's), they taste like fabulous homemade grandma pies.

  • Best meal we had since we've been on the north shore. Excellent service! Got pie to go and it was fabulous! Would definitely go back.
