We love Rusty Bucket. Consistently good food with consistently good service. It’s a great family restaurant and we are so happy there is now an extended patio area.

I had indicated that we were celebrating a birthday on the Open Table reservation but it was never mentioned. In the end, we ordered dessert but forgot to mention the birthday again.

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.

Service and food was excellent. Forgot servers name but she was from mantua. She was there whenever we needed anything but left us alone enough to chat. Great night! Thanks!

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.

End is smaller since they reopened but they kept all the good stuff and added a few new items that may become favorites!

Food and service great as always. Sat on the patio and felt safe dining there.

This was our first time going to Rusty Bucket. I had the fish and chips and my husband had a full rack of ribs. The food was excellent. The service was great. We had margaritas that were really good too. We will definitely be back.

First time there. Was at Santa Breakfast. My only complaint was how hard the toast was. Other than that we had a nice time. Hope this is done next year as well. Would like to suggest an activity for the kids to make/do while waiting for visit from Santa . Luckily it wasnt real busy, if it was could have had n issue with entertaining the kids while they waited. Also maybe offer an upgrade in price to include a pancake to breakfast. Thanks we did have a nice time. Hop to visit for dinner soon.

Food was good. Waiter was awesome! When you guys go ask for Reggie! The female bartender was friendly and engaging. We didn't have drinks, but were greeted very warmly on our way to our table, and on our way exiting the restaurant. I don't know her name...apologies.

We always get the same thing at the Rusty Bucket. Buffalo chicken sandwich and philly cheese steak sandwich. We start with the pot stickers....always delicious! The food and service is always very good. We travel a half hour just for lunch and it’s worth it... love this place!

Took the grandparents out for dinner. Good and service was very good. The was a child’s birthday party right next to us, so it was probably a bit louder than normal. Overall a good experience.

Asked hostess if we could not sit in the bar area (plenty of other tables) and she just stood there and then said no she couldn’t move us. Not customer friendly at all.

We travel about 30 minutes to eat at the Rusty Bucket because it’s that good!! Seated right away. Our server was attentive. She brought us our drinks right away. We ordered the delicious pot stickers as our appetizer. So good! We had the buffalo chicken sandwich with extra Bleu cheese—cooked perfectly and huge!! Ordered the philly cheese steak with sweet potato fries. Whatever they season the meat with is delicious!! And, the horseradish dipping sauce is very good. Love the Rusty Bucket! Great food & service! Never a bad meal!

The Double Nickel Salad is my favorite! The portion seems to have shrunken, but it's still was satisfying. The bacon is generous and compliments the sweetness of the onion and dressing.
