Rusty Bucket - Clintonville
Good service and food.
Not up the the usual standard this visit. Food took a long time, soda was flat, waiter did not check back regularly. Fish was soggy with grease.
Local, within walking distance of home. Server was excellent, appetizer was best!
STEAK WAS OVERALL POOR QUALITY - NO LIFE TO IT \, TASTED AS THOUGHT FROZEN AND DEFROSTED MORE THAN ONCE. WIFES MEATLOAF WAS OK
It is dependable but I have to say that when you serve french fries, for heaven's sake make sure that they are fresh and hot. Luke warm fries suck and I've had them delivered that way 3 times there and sent them back 2 times, not worth it anymore.
They were very accommodating when we needed to add three people to our reservation. They were too slow in servicing the table however, only one waitress for 14 people. The food came out at three different intervals. They were quick to offer compensation for this error which was appreciated considering the first fed were completely done before the second round came. The food was delicious!
Everything was great except for the amount of time it took to get our food. Server said it was a problem in the kitchen.
Rusty Bucket has the potential to be a great restaurant. The service is miserable. It took an unusually long time for the food to be served and the server was MIA.
This is a great restaurant and we always enjoy the food
Our waitress was Rose. Even with a group of 10 she gave us excellent service! The group commented they really like this Rusty Bucket and how great the service.
The food and service at the Clintonville Rusty Bucket are always great. It was a bit noisy being seated in the outdoor area w the emergency vehicles/sirens going on during Easter lunch but that aside it's a comfortable spot. The cherry on top is that it's right next to the Park of Roses so you can take a walk after eating. Would love to see a few more vegan options, though.
Nice, neighborhood restaurant, good food, friendly service and atmosphere!
As always...great food and service...very loud...hard to have a conversation.
Would be nice if the patio or another area was reserved for adults only
The service and food was excellent! Our server was very pleasant, helpful, and fun!
It’s a little too dark. Would be nice to have the south side blinds open. Looks gloomy on overcast days.
Appreciate the family/neighbor atmosphere.
Large family group and our server did a fantastic job. Super impressed.
Placed the reservation 24 hours prior. Arrived a few minutes early and our table was waiting for us. Extremely happy. Our server was Erin. He was incredible. Everything was exactly as ordered and he was very attentive to our needs. Couldn't be more pleased. Thank you.
P.S. My only complaint is your menu. Everything I've ever ordered, and I've ordered alot of different items, has been fantastic. Makes it hard to decide what to order. Lol
The dining experience was enjoyable with exception to having to wait for a table for a half hour even with a reservation. Why bother with a reservation if they are not going to honor it on time?
Had a team outing here at the Rusty Bucket, it was great! Our server, Sarah, had a lot of fun with us and really played into our teams' upbeat joyous mood. She visited the table often to refill drinks and was spot on with our orders and multiple checks. We sat on the fire-heated porch area which was such a treat as there was seating around the fire the group could gather at after we finished our food. We really appreciated how welcoming Rusty Bucket was and will be visiting again very soon! Thank you Rusty Bucket!
Very nice restaurant and very easy parking. Had a group of 11 so we were seated in the party room which was nice, roomy, and quiet. The tables were ready when we arrived, thanks to Open Table reservations, & we were allowed to sit down before the entire group arrived. Had an excellent waitress, Kristin I believe, and she was not phased by the large group and the orders were correct and came out close together. A good central Columbus location for friends who live in different areas of Columbus. We will be back.
Our server Jamie was very polite and attentive to us. She was very nice and did a great job. The food was good and I enjoyed it very much.
We were seated promptly, the service was fast and reliable and the food was delicious.
Did Restaurant Week special, but RB is just 2 blocks away. We always have a good time and great food.
Me and my friends got very good food, customer service and a good time
Nice! Great service and good food value
Had office luncheon there and other than a little delay in service was a great choice.
Amazing Breakfast with Santa event. So well organized & great staff.
We went to Rusty Bucket for the Breakfast with Santa. It was adorable! Staff did a great job of being patient and efficient with so many children attending. We also love their happy hour-great deals on several delicious apps. So glad RB came to Clintonville .
Very accommodating and our waiter was fantastic! Food was great as well
We were in town from South Carolina for the OSU game
Great food and prices. The shrimp scampi was very tasty. I went online to check out the menu. Loved all the options.
This was my first visit but won't be my last. The service was excellent - very friendly and attentive. The food was cooked to my order and since we were there around 11 am when they opened on Saturday, it was still quiet and a great place to catch up with my sister over lunch. The only very slight downfall was the fries I got with my turkey club sandwich weren't crispy. Next time I'll order them extra crispy and that should take care of that slight disappointment. Otherwise, it's a very casual and comfortable neighborhood bar with friendly servers and delicious food.
We were celebrating a birthday with 2 little kids. Staff was very accommodating to all of us, food was great as always and we were put in a smaller room so it was quiet enough to talk. Great place to go.
Had a great time. The staff were wonderful and the food was great.
Brunch for 12. Good service. Quasi-private room. Room temp coffee throughout brunch
Great experience for my son's birthday. Had a great time in the private dining area with good food and great service.
Always a great spot to do lunch with friends. Patio always nice (even on a super hot day). Friendly waiter who kept our water and tea classes filled and icy.
Great place for Fathers Day!
