I really enjoyed my meal at Rustik Tavern.  You enter and seat yourself whereever you would feel comfortable.  The server came over right away and took our drink order.  The restaurant has a bar and TVs and everyone seemed to be there for happy hour.  We ordered our food and it didn't take long to come.  We had:

-The Grand Butcherboy Burger which was done just right with a side of fries which were delicious.  They tasted like they were handout and fresh.

-The Roasted Beet and Kale salad (with onions) which had a light dressing that was just enough to coat the leaves!

-The Butcherboy Sliders (mini Turkey Burgers) with fries were just right!

-The Sanford Salmon (Blackened salmon) with mashed potatoes and braised kale!  The salmon was well seasoned and cooked so good!

I opted to have dessert which was another pleasant treat!  The brownie tasted freshly made and was topped with fudge and ice cream. The peach cobbler was warm with a cake like topping and also served with ice cream!  We were pleased with both desserts.

Overall a great visit and I will definitely be back!
