    I’ve been to a Rusty Bucket quite a few times and recommended it for a night out with friends. I couldn’t have been more disappointed! Serving sizes of the salads were noticeably smaller, none of the salmon salads included avocado (we pointed it out and the waitress acknowledged it was missing - but did not remedy), service was slow, and - at one point- the outside heaters were turned off. A salmon portion ordered “well done” was offered medium - and the meal was not consumed. This was so embarrassing and I am not sure I am willing to revisit this former favorite going forward.

    First time visiting. Hostess noticed that the first table she sat us at had not been wiped down, quickly moved us to another table, and apologized for the inconvenience. The El Cubano sandwich was one of the best I’ve had recently. Definitely up for going back again to try some other items on the menu.

    First time visiting and I’ll definitely be back. I had the Baja Fish Tacos - great taste, but underwhelmed by the portion. For the price, I should’ve had more than one slender piece of Mahi Mahi per taco. BUT, the bread pudding I took home is the best I’ve had from a restaurant. Great atmosphere and service; menu has plenty of options so I’ll definitely be back!

    Rusty Bucket in South Park is a great neighborhood spot to sit back and relax with good pub food and drink. Whether you want to sit in the bar area with all of the live action on the TV, a quieter spot in the dining area, or outside, there are options for all.

    The only reason it’s not five-star overall is that we felt a bit rushed when the service provider brought our bills to the table before one of our party was finished eating… She was a great server otherwise… But I think it would help to let a group completely finish before bringing the bill.

    The service was terrible. We had to wait 15 minutes to get our drink orders. Another waitress saw that we were not being taken care of and took over our table. It took 30 minutes s to get out food. The restaurant came highly recommended. Maybe they were having a bad, but it was a bad first impression.

    It started off a little shaky as we sat for a while and no one waited on us. We flagged down a waiter who ended up Taking our table as no one claimed us. He was amazing and turned what would have been a lackluster long evening into a very enjoyable dinner. Food was delicious. My husband rewarded him well for taking our table. 😊

    Fun environment. Chicken Parm was good, asked for no croutons on salad, got a load of them. Salty but tasty French onion soup. Pasta with ricotta was good (forgot name). Put sweet vermouth in my grey goose martini - terrible! Went with family- we always taste each other’s meals. A bit pricey for bar food but I guess the location is pricey too. Wouldn’t necessarily go back.

    This was my first visit to the Rusty Bucket - South Park, which I selected based on its diverse and interesting menu. The location is very convenient location. After being promptly seated, our server came with water and took our food and drink orders. Our meals arrived quickly and that's when the disappointment started. Our fish and chips order looked fantastic but fell short because the fries were stone cold. Our meatloaf didn't prove to be any better, as the mashed potatoes were cold and pasty. In addition, the meatloaf was tasteless and significantly overcooked. Didn't expect the Rusty Bucket to be fine dining but expected it to have great tavern food. Last night, it didn't

    I can tell this will become one of my go to neighborhood spots! The food was spot on, drinks cold, and service was good. It was good tavern food, but didn’t feel like a loud bar. Some people were watching the games, others talking, but it felt very chill.
