They have a wonderful drink there which is similar to a grape martini. It was no longer on the menu but the server asked the bartender and she was kind enough to make it for us! The drinks were fabulous and the food was great. We had a great time and appreciated the exceptional service.

They ask if anyone has food allergies and when I made my reservation I asked to be placed in a quiet area b/c my Dad is hard of hearing. They were very accomodating. Loved it!

Our hostess was rude when we asked for a high chair. I understand rules and regulations but the way she addressed us with her tonality and body language was very unprofessional. She also had an attitude and didn’t give me my open table points and I learned that my reservation was cancelled even though I was clearly dining at the establishment.

Didn’t have our Opentable reservations. Has to show them my email. Haven’t heard back from Opentable either. Waitress was friendly but wait time was long, 1. For her to greet us, 2. To get drink order. Location was not busy upon our arrival and their appeared to be ample wait staff.

Might give location another try, but uncertain at this point.

Dining at Rusty Bucket was about as expected after work. The food is good and the service was also nice. A good place to eat that provides a number of options based on what you are hungry for.

We enjoyed our dinner in a nice and comfortable, casual atmosphere. The meatloaf was tasty and plated in an aesthetically pleasing manner. The spinach dip was also very good. Our server was pleasant and the service was good and timely.

Rusty Bucket food has always been good.

Our server, Stephanie, made this visit much more enjoyable. She was attentive without being overpowering. When I ask for a recommendation between two entries she gave me an immediate response of which one she lived best. She made sure our water and tea were always filled. When I asked about the words on the back of the server's shirts she turned so I could see her shirt, she had no problem with me moving her hair away so I could read it. When we come back we will definitely request to be seated in her area.

Hostess was rude asked twice not to be seated near the door. She seemed like this was a huge problem and had a very bad attitude after that. The experience was made better by our wonderful server Sam. She was excellent knew the menu offered suggestions. Followed up consistently with a pleasant attitude!!

Sam was great

This being my second time at the Rusty Bucket within a two week span I believe that on Friday and Saturday evenings, given the large crowds, that there is not enough staff on hand. This particular time all of the "hot" food was either cold or lukewarm. In fact two of us had to have our meals returned to the kitchen for hotter food. Once it came to the table it was good and hot and very tasty. I think that the kitchen staff is on the money but the food isn't delivered to the table fast enough due to, as I mentioned above, a lack of staff which allows the food to cool off as it sits around on the serving area of the kitchen.

Our server was absolutely great. I apologize but I do not remember his name, we ended up using the private room and approximately 10 individuals showed up for dinner and drinks. He served us without missing a beat, so thank you very much!

The overall experience was OK. I ordered a salad and half the toppings were missing. I was given lettuce tortilla chips and dressing. The black beans salsa corn cheese was missing. The waitress politely provided me a cup of the items missing but it ruined the experience.
