Rustic Root showcases a dynamic menu of rustic American cuisine with a spotlight on house-made ingredients. We are dedicated to serving food that is rooted in tradition, yet has a modern and creative flare. And our creativity doesn’t just stop at the plate! Our craft cocktails have a classic background with a tasty twist…building on drink recipes of the past and shaking them up into something deliciously fresh.
Both our food and drink menus feature high-quality ingredients that transform simple, American favorites into flavorful, unexpected, and seasonally-infused dishes and cocktails!

Literally everything we had was delicious, you can't go wrong with any of the menu items.
Another great addition from RMD! The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable; as well as very accomodating. Great staff, great food, great drinks; it's basically the perfect ambiance.
It's not every day that I leave a restaurant trying to figure out how quickly I can find and excuse to go back, but I'm already jonesin' for more Rustic Root.
