Over priced food. Service was slow, and order was wrong when we finally received the food. Won't be going back.

We had a distracted server and had no clue. We were there 20 min before we could order. We had eaten there before and never like this. I will ask to be moved if Beth is our server.

They are still working on a 'reduced' menu so many vegan dishes are not available at this point

Excellent dinner for three senior ladies celebrating a 85th birthday. We all wore masks. Heather was a great waitress. It was our 1st time out during COVID. A real treat.
Food was delicious. Can’t wait to return soon.

Reserved a table for two at a specific time. When I arrived, the hostess said I reserved a table for 10 and she couldn't seat me and my guest. My open table reservation clearly indicated two. Finally did get seated outside. Not sure I'll use open table again because of the error in the reservation.

We were surprised to arrive and find out open table doesn’t secure a reservation but instead puts you on a priority list when you arrive. We had to wait for a table. Then we were sat in the middle of a very noisy room so it was super difficult to hear each other talking. The food was good but we probably wouldn’t go back to that location.

I ordered the macaroni and cheese and it tasted like it came out of a box. Definitely not worth what I paid for it. It took our waitress 3 at attempts to refill our beverages, and the kids meal my son ordered tasted better than my adult entree. Very disappointed 😡😡

I took my 20 something sons and their girlfriends out to dinner before a local show, and we had a wonderful time. We had reservations and were seated in the Tiger Den, which made our special evening out even more special. The appetizers, drinks, food, service and setting was simply great. We had two in our group who are gluten free and there were plenty of choices for them as well.

Our family really enjoyed our time at Rusty Bucket. Great food and atmosphere. The only thing that I would change would be the peal and eat shrimp. Please get pre-pealed shrimp. 😉

Good food but not the perfect experience. We asked if it was happy hour but then we weren’t given Happy hour prices. The waitress was busy and mistakes happen but we were thankful the food was good.

Always enjoy Rusty Bucket, but recently got hold of nutritional information of their menu. Might call it fat city now. Most things 800 calories plus. Very few healthy choices. They should get with the program like several other restaurants do in providing a menu with a choice of a number of lower calorie foods, 500, or 600 calories or less. Also, minimal vegetarian choices. Veggie soup of the day wasn’t vegetarian. Veggie burger has over 900 calories!. Minimal choices other than a few salads with modifications.
Sweet potato fries were excellent.
Overall, nice standby, but smarter choices should be available.

Nice neighborhood restaurant. Nothing fancy, but good reliable food. Great sweet potato fries! Decent veggie burger. We had the bucket of burgers made veggie & they were good. Shared a couple of dishes & they split them before serving, which is always appreciated. Stand by restaurant & will return again & again.
