Rusty Bucket Clintonville has been our go to casual dining choice since the pandemic spelled the end of our nearby Max & Erma locations. We've decided that the ambiance and menu (especially the burgers) are a fortuitous upgrade
Perfect place to catch up with family and friends who have different dietary preferences and tastes. Attentive service adds to the experience (thanks Kyle).
We enjoyed another evening at the Clintonville Rusty Bucket. One of our daughters joined us and we were all pleased with our meals, the atmosphere and the quality of service (thank you Kyle). We'll be back!
We had an excellent server - Joel I think was his name!
Perfect place to celebrated our Granddaughter's 22nd birthday. Food to satisfy multi generational palates, atmosphere conducive for an enjoyable evening, friendly attentive service (thanks Lincoln! ) and a FREE DESSERT for the birthday girl 😁
Service was fine until the kitchen. Need more kitchen help.
Met our daughter at the Clintonville Rusty Bucket for our first post vaccination mackless outing. GREAT choice!
Great place to meet friends! Good food and good service.
Long wait for food in a crowded restaurant - it was GREAT to be back to “normal” for our celebration dinner!
As always, great service and food!
Took over an hour to get our food, but they ended up comping one of the items without us asking, which was very nice. Food was good. Try the sticky buns!
It was nice to come back to our neighborhood restaurant. Happy to see the parking lot full. Food was excellent as usual. Staff accommodated our last minute change of number in party from 2 to 5- thank you!
Great place to gather with family, including our daughter the vegetarian. Especially nice on half price bottle of wine Tuesdays
Our server was Kyle - best ever. We usually go to the Lane Avenue location but may change our habit.
Lincoln was an excellent waiter, very attentive and efficient. Food was really good as always.
Our server was wonderful and the food was delicious. What more could I ask for?
The Clintonville Rusty Bucket provided the perfect venue for us to reconnect with friends for the first inside dining gathering since the beginning of the pandemic. Good food and service, a welcoming atmosphere and safe environment made for a perfect evening.
The french onion soup was amazing as well as the chili my husband had. I wasn't impressed with our main dishes though.
We know that the Clintonville Rusty Bucket is experiencing the same staffing challenges currently plaguing most restaurants but despite that situation we never feel rushed, neglected or anything but fully welcomed and well served. We'll be back with friends and family.
Decent food at fair prices; what more can I say?
Great casual dining experience! Safe and welcoming. Good food. Good value.
Good food, welcoming atmosphere and attentive service, even on a busy evening made us pleased that we celebrated our anniversary with dinner at the Clintonville Rusty Bucket
It was great
Another nice evening at the Clintonville Rusty Bucket. A great place to catch up with our grandson before he returned to campus at Ohio University.
Another nice evening at the Clintonville Rusty Bucket. Good food, great service and a truly welcoming atmosphere.
Good service, nice eating out experience food was good! My power bowl was good....I think the service was the best part, our server took good care of us.
Food was outstanding as always! Our waiter, Kyle, was very attentive to our needs even before we asked...refills, napkins etc. Kyle represents Rusty Bucket very well!
Fabulous Easton dinner!
An old friend and I wanted to get out for lunch and visit. We both felt very comfortable and well cared for. Our server was above average. She saw we wanted to spend some time and did not rush us. Beverage refills arrived without asking. Appetizers were out in a reasonable time and didn’t overlap into the meal, which came out at just the right time.
Food good. Desserts scrumptious. Service good. Shields between tables.
Can't beat half price wine bottle Tuesdays!!!
The service was EXCELLENT! The food was good, no complaints however they set us on the patio which is "kind of" enclosed with "plastic" and it was EXTREMELY NOISY from the traffic.
Meeting our daughter at the Clintonville Rusty Bucket again proved to be a good decision with a breadth of great menu options, perfectly prepared and delivered in a welcoming, safe and friendly environment. Half price wine bottle night was a plus!
From the time we walked in to the time we walked out we felt welcomed and well served! Oh.... our meals were great too.
We were a group of 6. We were seated in their private dining room. It was perfect for friends who haven't seen each other in person in a year. Our waiter was wonderful and very attentive! Thanks Rusty Bucket!
I love coming to RB for happy hour. The food is delicious and the staff are very friendly. I feel safe on the patio and adequately distanced from other parties.
Thanks for coming out and we hope you continue to have a great time!
Great food, good value, attentive service and a safe, welcoming environment. The Clintonville Rusty Bucket is our go to destination for our family
It was good to see a significant dine-in business uptick at our favorite casual dining spot and even more gratifying when, despite being busy the attention to safety, level of service and welcoming ambiance remained excellent
