Rusty Anchor at the Music Box Ratings and Reviews
Had never been here but now twice in a couple of weeks. The Sunday brunch was great, good value and tasty ingredients. Saw a show there last night and showed up an hour early for dinner. Great selection, fresh ingredients and some of the best lobster bisque I’ve ever had. I had a super fresh walleye dinner,and my wife’s rib eye was to die for! Got a table next to the stage, service was great. This place is a little pricey, but worth it,
The Cleveland Conversations are fabulous and extremely interesting.THe topics are varied but all presenters are very knowledgeable.would recommend Cleveland Conversations to any Clevelander and to anyone not lucky enough to live here.would suggest an updated menu.
I'm really impressed! First time there with a Meetup group to hear a local author discuss her book. There was plenty of seating available. Service, for how crowded it was, was actually decent. Our server was hopping, but she was attentive as possible. Kept our water flowing, which seems unheard of these days. Plenty of parking. Gracious hostess and employees who I needed to ask questions of. Returning tonight actually to try a concert! Can't say enough about how surprised I was by the venue, the menu (I'm healthier than most and could still find plenty), alcohol options (I'm a wine snob and wasn't disgusted), and service.
The meal was combined with a conversation with Comedy writer Jaffe who is a hometown guy who was one of the key writers on the first year of Seinfeld. He fed comedy to the show for many years while following his own career in stand up and writing for other venues. His wife was OBY GYN doc who developed Parkinson's disease. Jaffe has been raising awareness and funds to combat this disease with an event called "Shaking With Laughter". Very worthwhile endeavor as well as a great time for laughter which is also a great stress reliever - can't we all use some of that? He has a book of humor based on his wife's stories which is graciously signed and even gives a free book of baby talk translations - can't wait to ready both. Menu of 3 course was based on various known episodes from Seinfeld - No Soup For You was a salad - clever; Festivus for the Restofus was a great dinner of turkey, dressing, green beans and potatoes. It was topped off with cheesecake although I can't recall it's name
Went with a friend for New Year's Eve brunch. The food and entertainment were ,as usual, phenomenal. The service however was not so phenomenal. I understand that it was a holiday and it was extremely crowded, however in anticipation of this I would think that there would be more staff on hand. Our water glasses did not get refilled during our entire visit. Would be a good idea to place water pitchers on each table. Other than the fact I thought I was going to die of thirst, everything was wonderful😁. Great way to kick off New Year's Eve!!! We rave about the Supper Club. We'll definitely be back!
Food was ok, service was wonderful. Tables were too close together, causing me to be hit in the back by two women seated behind me for an hour. The same two women who talked, the entire time my husband and I were there, making it very difficult to enjoy the music. After a little over an hour we decided to savage the remainder of our evening by leaving. Suggestions for Rusty Anchor: separate your tables to allow more room for guests and make an announcement regarding talking during performance should be minimized or taken to another area. Was not worth our drive from Avon Lake.
I brought friends there to see Michael Sonata a few months ago and we were seated up top in the back corner. We couldn’t see or hear a thing. So I made a reservation for 4 for the December 23rd show on October 6th. I mentioned the problem we had the last time we were there and asked for something out front. When we arrived that night we were seated in the one table behind the stage. We had a great view of the drummer...that’s it.
Then the servers forgot about us all night. I had to actually go to the bar to get drink and dinner menus because it took so long. We wanted to order at 6:30, but no one took our order till 7:00. Then we got our food at 8:06. I know this because we were about to leave. Every table around us was finished with desert and our dinner just showed up.
The food was good, but the experience was pretty bad. That’s 2 visits to Rusty Anchor, and 2 disappointments.
What a great evening! The Sinatra tribute show was awesome. We were a group of four and we all ordered the lake perch. It was delicious and some of the best coleslaw I've ever had. The only improvement I can think of would be less talking from those in the audience in order to enjoy the singing more...but then it IS a supper club so I guess that's not going to happen!
Came to listen to the talk on Millionaire’s Row. Most informative and entertaining.
Ordered the Brie appetizer which was delicious. For dinner ordered the daily special. Disappointing. Chicken was mostly breading, not much chicken. Macaroni and cheese was cold; sent back twice before getting hotter Mac.
Our server, Sean, was terrific!! So friendly, patient and ready to serve. Would request him again. Hope he gets recognized in some way!
The musical entertainment for our reservation time was Rachel Brown. She and her band were incredible. The food was beyond awful. I mean unpalatable. Everything was far over cooked. Sausage was black and hard as chips. The eggs Benedict, by far the most disappointing. Cooked hard like a hard boiled egg. It wasn’t just my random selection, I had seven people in my party and each had hard boiled eggs instead of the ooooz the egg should offer. No hollandaise sauce, scallions or even parsley to top it. Bakery was dried out crumbles. Quite honestly, I was embarrassed to have entertained such a brunch. Very disappointed to say the least. Server was Nick, he was great as well as the bartender at the Bloody Mary bar.
The restaurant did not meet my expectations. The waiter told us that cider was out of stock and then at end of meal said that it was and asked if we still wanted it. The food was mefiocre--we had the perch fish and chips. Fish taste like it was frozen fish. The coleslaw was ok. The drinks were mediocre.
I had the baked brie with a roasted garlic head and fig jam - awesome! And the beer selection is mostly local stuff, which is wonderful. And some of the best live music around. And its on the river. And has THE best party band for holidays and other events: Sunrise Jones. Coming here to party and dance for New Years Eve. You should too!
We attended our second "Beatles Brunch" this year at the Music Box and enjoyed it as much as we did the first time. This is a great venue, right on the Cuyahoga River, and the music is always good. There's an amazing variety of acts - something for everyone. The bunch is an excellent value, with a wide variety of options that are well prepared. The only thing it lacks is vegan entree options - I wish management would add some. As in the past, the service at our recent visit was top notch - the wait staff really hustles, and they always aim to please.
