    My birthday is March 5 and my best friend Debbie’s birthday is March 10. Each year we celebrate together. We went to Rusty Bucket because they offered a corned beef meal for St. Patricks Day and I love their bread pudding. Three ordered the corned beef meal and I ordered the Trio. I asked the server to make sure the chili was hot. It took probably 20 minutes for our food to arrive. All three sent the corned beef meals back because they were cold. My chili was cold, the salad was overdressed with no blue cheese. I sent the salad back and asked for the dressing on the side. When it was returned, by the unpleasant manager, it was without the blue cheese and the bacon. I did not say anything just ate some of it and had the rest packed to take home. The server asked if we wanted the free dessert for our birthdays and we said yes, to go. The unpleasant manager, brought out the bread pudding and asked if it was really our birthdays or if it was our birthday ish. Not sure what she meant but we told her the official dates and she walked away. The three did enjoy their corned beef meals after they were heated and the salad was okay. I'm not sure why the service was so slow or why the female manager was so unpleasant but it did not make for a good dining experience. I've dined at the Bingham Farms location and the service and food were always excellent. I live much closer to the Bloomfield location. I wish the service was as good. The bread pudding, as usual, was superb.

    Short version - ordered dinner at 5:40. - food was delivered to us at 6:40. Once order was placed and appetizer/drinks were delivered, we had interaction with the waitress until well after 6:15. She told us she had checked on the food and it would be out shortly. Other diners who came in well after us had been served and were out the door. Finally at 6:35 the manager brought out a duplicate of the appetizer we had already eaten. We did not want a duplicate of the appetizers- we wanted our dinners. Once told that 3 of the dinners were ready, we asked t that those be brought out and those without dinner ready could share. Finally all were served. Many apologies from the manager but we never were told what happened. We suspect the waitress forgot to place our order. She was very nice and seems overworked, but since other diners were well taken care of, it was a mystery as to why we weren’t.

    Hostess and seating were quick and nice and that’s why giving a three star. Service personnel while was polite but was borderline polite, for example either did not know how to or chose not to use the phrase “thank you”. :-)

    GREAT FOOD! NICE PLACE! We were meeting some family members for dinner and decided to go here. We had everything from Strip Steak to the BBQ Chicken Chopped Salad. We also got a couple Appetizers. The Brussels Sprouts were amazing! I don't usually order desserts but with the excellent dinner experience, I HAD to try the Bread Pudding, delicious!!!

    Pretty overpriced. Our server never checked on us - we always had to flag her down for things. All of food came out at the same time - soup-salad, apps and mains. Def overpriced. Not sure the fish sticks should be $20.

    Enjoyed our meal but when ordering drinks for kids the server did an upsell that was not mentioned. The lemonade would have been free with the kids meals but the server asked if they wanted strawberry lemonade which they both naturally wanted. The server did not mention this was now a "bar item" at $5.00 each which was then a $10 add on to our bill. I did not dispute this which in retrospect I wish I would have as I feel this was poorly handled by a server who otherwise did a great job. Kind of a bad final impression.......tipped her well in spite of this but again poorly handled.

    We have noticed that many times we visit your restaurant we have a long wait time for our food. Last night, was no different. We only ordered chicken wings, salad and onion rings and took SO long. Other tables around us their food came out sooner and they all ordered entrees. They also came in after us.

    This was my first visit to the Rusty bucket. The wait staff is very unorganized. We waited 20 minutes just to get a waitress at our table. No one was aware who was suppose to be the waitress that served our table. Finally someone came and took our order. We ordered an alcoholic drink. Which took a very long time to get. I must say the food was really good. It was worth a try but I probably would not come back
