I made a reservation, so we were seated right away. Our server came right over to take our drink order. Had a couple of iced teas. Started with French onion soup. Hot and cheesy, but not too salty. Very good...we both ordered the philly cheese steak. This is what I usually order. The steak is so tender and tasty! It was delicious! Our server was attentive throughout our meal. Love the Rusty Bucket. We travel about 25 minutes from the west side and it’s worth the drive.

Always a great go-to! And such a great value! I live in Columbus, so happy to see RB making waves at home in Cleveland. Service was great! Even when one person in our party wasn’t a fan of what they ordered, our waitress and management did everything they could to make it right. Their burgers are some of the best I’ve ever had. Highly recommend!

Rusty Bucket was wonderful as usual. Service was attentive and courteous. We had the french onion soup and double nickel salad with salmon. The soup was very tasty and not over salty. The salmon was very moist and flavorful. The double nickel salad was....well....it’s usual satisfying self.

Drinks are overpriced. Had a taco salad for 13.00 wasn’t 50c worth of meat in there. The peel and eat shrimp for like 13 is a joke worth 6.00 at most. 2nd time I’ve been here in a month. Won’t come back

I ordered the salmon salad due to the fact that my favorite dish “Bucket Ole Shrimp” was out!
My second choice was horrible... my guest from out of town had a great time, good times was had by all but the salad had my stomach cramping most of the evening. Salad never does that, it was the salmon. So surprised, I’ve chosen this restaurant as my absolute best in Solon. Gee Whiz have to change that now it’s the worst for the salmon dish. I’ll stick with Chicago Deli in Solon here I come George!!!!!

Always great service and always great food. They have gone out of their way to make sure all Covid rules are followed. We go there at the very least once a month. Last year we had our 50th wedding anniversary party there. The party went without a hitch.

The chicken parmesan was nearly all breading, no chicken. The sauce and cheese on the chicken cutlets was very sparse. The accompanying spaghetti with alfredo sauce was ice cold. My first choice to order, the taco salad with ground beef, has been taken off the menu. Our waitress did provide good service. All in all, a very mediocre experience.

They have done a good job of placing plexiglass on top of the booths to maintain barriers between the booths and have the tables combined and a good distance from each other.
