We had a great experience. Food and service were both excellent.
It was just okay. We made a reservation and they put us in the bar area (that smelled like a bar) and we had 3 kids with us….it was underwhelming.
First time. Enjoyed our dinner.
First time seeing my family since the beginning of Covid. We came down from NYC. Restaurant was great and our waiter was super attentive. We’re vegans and vegetarians, but this place has a few solid options. Desserts were huge — and everyone enjoyed them. Great place.
The waiter was fabulous, friendly, attentive but not intrusive, personable and funny. The food was great for a casual dining place, portions were large and the bread pudding was the best we’ve had since we moved to Charlotte. We will be returning often.
We enjoyed our meal very much. Lisa, our waitress was great. Very helpful, upbeat and attentive. Just in Charlotte for a couple of days. Would absolutely return if we stay longer.
The food was fantastic! Great experience
Always a crowd pleaser for our family of 5! Bread pudding is divine!!
Great service great food
I would give it 5 stars but the waitress forgot we were celebrating a birthday. She even told us at the beginning that the birthday person would get a special surprise but then she forgot.
We had never been there before and will definitely go back. Great food, service and atmosphere’
Had a wonderful time!
We had 4 totally different entrees and they were ALL delicious. We kept talking about how yummy all the food was.
Great overall experience for 3 traveling ladies. Sat on the patio and enjoyed an acoustic performance across street. Wait staff was attentive and fulfilled our expectations. Food was great; double nickel salad was perfection in the right amount of dressing was used. Would recommend to family and friends traveling to the Queen City.
It was my first time here and everything was outstanding from being greeted at the door, service, cleanliness, the Food was amazing I will definitely be back!!
It was great.
There was a little down time before our table received service, but after that our server was great. Loved the food - beef stroganoff and a poke bowl. The portions were reasonable. Drinks were creative and tasty. No room for dessert unfortunately, but they sounded delicious, too.
We came with a big group and they were able to accommodate us ! Food was great and our server took good care of us !
Excellent food. Took a while to get drink refills but overall a pleasant experience. Sat outside and the weather was perfect.
My friend and I came in at 7:15, and I think the kitchen closes at 9 so I kinda understand. However, our server brought the wrong wine, already opened and poured. I asked for the Cabernet. The dryer of the 2 bottles on the menu. She brought a white wine. But we enjoyed it anyway. We ordered nachos w chicken and Buffalo cauliflower, both were yummy. But then she dropped the tab off at the table and said no rush. We got her attention and ordered the veggie pizza at 9:05. It was yummy as well. We’re in the service industry as well and are very forgiving, but we felt kinda rushed. Only downside. We’ll be back. Earlier LOL.
Awesome atmosphere along with great food and drinks
Food was good. First time visit. Definitely need a reservation. Glad we had one.
Love the eclectic menu. Never saw beef stroganoff on any other Charlotte restaurant
menu, and it's fantastic at Rusty Bucket.
Good pubfood. We were sitting outside and the atmosphere was very laid back. Attentive servers.
Food was great, service was outstanding. This was our second trip to Rusty Bucket. Both times have been enjoyable experiences.
Overall very good. But not enough variety in the menu.
The food came out quickly and was very good! Would definitely go back.
Great food and great service
Rusty Bucket is our new "go to" place for good food, outstanding service, and convenient location. I had the buffalo chicken sandwich which featured the most mind-bogglingly huge piece of chicken I've ever seen. My wife had the mahi fish tacos which were also just right. I appreciate that they have multiple sides options including sweet potato fries. Rusty Bucket is the mama bear of fast casual restaurants; not too fancy and not too casual. It's just right!
Food was sub par. Service was sub par. Wouldn’t recommend
We had the chicken wings, meatloaf, and Buffalo chicken sandwich. All were great.
This was probably our 3rd or 4th time there.
Great upscale pub food with some unique options. Nice presentation; service is always friendly, and they actually have a "true" local and rotating beer list (not just the top 5 usual NC beers). We had the Hoosier Daddy pork tenderloin (monstrous and flavorful), and I asked to turn the cheesesteak into a chicken Philly (which they did); also yummy.
It was busy but not jammed; tucked into a side road near SouthPark mall, it's a little gem. Shhhh - let's keep it to ourselves.
We absolutely loved this restaurant
Good overall. Menu needs more healthy items, more salads, more fish, more protein items.
Went with a group of 12 and they were super accommodating! had a great time ! The food was awesome and our server was amazing! Will definitely be going back !
Fish & chips were great!
The food was amazing and our server Mike made the experience 10 times better. We really enjoyed our date night at the Rusty Bucket.
Food was better than I had expected, our group ordered the nachos to share and they were devoured.
The cheesesteak sandwich & the sweet potato fries were really good. Everyone was very satisfied.
Great food, great service, loved the beer and appetizer selection in particular. Server made great suggestions when asked what to order.
We had horrible service but fortunately for her we were having fun with our friends.
