The Rustic Country Club in Rockport, Indiana is part of the Lakewood Country Club.
I couldn’t imagine a more peaceful setting in which to dine than this Spencer County restaurant!
The Rustic Country Club in Rockport, Indiana
Overlooking the golf course and a pond, this rather large Indiana town restaurant certainly has location in its favor. It was a beautiful evening. My husband, Jeremy, both of our boys, and I unanimously decided to sit outside.
Can you say fire pit? Actually, you can say it again because there were two fire pits at The Rustic Country Club. I couldn’t think of a nicer spot on a crisp Autumn evening. Or, in our case–the Summer.
There’s a lot to like about the menu at The Rustic. Although I could have gone for the Nineteenth Hole Nachos, we skipped the appetizer and went right for dinner!

The kid menu had a few tried and true favorites. Kid #2 got a Grilled Cheese Sandwich with a side of tater tots.
Kid #1 is such a fan of shrimp that we ordered off the adult menu for him. Would you believe he actually made a huge dent in his 21 pieces of Fried Shrimp? He was in shrimp Heaven!
My husband ordered the Ribeye and I got the two 1″ Pork Chops. Our sides were the same: An amazingly fresh House Artichoke Salad, and a Sweet Potato (I don’t know why I find that Oprah clip so funny–but I do).
The Rustic Country Club had really great food. We are so glad we got a chance to return to this nifty little small town.
I’m sure it isn’t always so quiet and peaceful–there were a ton of seats here so I imagine a much larger, festive crowd. But during our time at The Rustic Country Club, we were the only people sitting outside.
It was the perfect way to recharge after a very long (but super fun) day exploring Indiana towns!
