Rusty Bucket - 86th & Ditch
Great place, great food, wonderful bartenders and servers.
If you haven’t tried this ‘Cheers-atmosphere’ gen...you are missing out.
Food is consistently good! Great overall value.
The food was fresh and made in-house. Turkey burgers were among the best I've had. My grandchildren had the chicken fingers which were moist and lightly breaded.
Restaurant could use a face lift. Tablecloths are plastic and torn.
Service was slow. Food a bit overpriced compared to other establishments.
Great place, great food and great service! One of our favorite places.
Great time with friends. Food and service was great.
GREAT FOOD, wonderful people and servers and a fun and relaxing atmosphere.
For those who haven’t been...you need to go.
Everything on the menu is excellent.
Always great food and our server was friendly and efficient.
We had a party of 9 including 5 kids (ages 3-12). Trying to get a reservation for that size party on a Saturday night in the Indy area is not easy, especially last minute. We were able to snag a table thru the Open Table app only about 25-30 min earlier. None of us had ever been before and actually hadn’t even heard of it. We were surprised to learn they had been there for 10 years! Our waiter was wonderful! Very personable, made some great suggestions and even offered to comp some fried pickles for us to try since we were “newbies”. They were amazing as was all of our food! Highly recommend the Buffalo Chicken sandwich, burger, pork tenderloin and fish and chips (and don’t forget the fried pickles with ranch:). There is a good sized bar in the middle of the restaurant but plenty of other seating around. Like I said, we had kids with us and it was a completely appropriate atmosphere. Great place, will definitely return!
Great, friendly go-to place. If you haven’t been, please go. It is a friendly neighborhood restaurant/bar with excellent food and servers.
It was our firzt time there and we were treated great by our waiter. When we were done eating, he brought us a free dessert to share. The service was excellent and the food was great!
A good place for a family gathering of people of all ages. We were all very happy with the choice of this restaurant. Definitely, it will be recommended to others.
Server was too rushed. Spilled drinks on us - twice. Kept bring new sodas - never taking the empty glasses. Food was good - not great. I will try this restaurant again.
what an excellent choice! we had a group of 11 and we were able to get into their private room off to the side, the food was EXCELLENT. each of us were pleasantly surprised.. started with bbq and sweet chili wings, there were excellent. the pot stickers were the bomb. kids meals pizza and mac and cheese were awesome, each of us had a different item on the menu and everything was finished nothing left!
the 2 two birthday big kids each got a free desert as well and they too were awesome! we joked and even asked to find out more about the franchise bc it was delicious with great service!
Great service and great food!! You do need more parking!
Found this spot online and made 1st visit for my wife's birthday. Made online reservations for a Thursday evening and was glad I did. Our table was the only table open when we arrived, place was packed. Very good food and service. We will be return customers.
My neighbors all love this restaurant. Took a group of friends there yesterday for lunch, and we were allowed to use the private dining room, which is nice and quiet. Everyone liked their meal except for my husband, who didn't care for the breakfast burrito. The pork tenderloin, which is not as big as some, and the Reuben got rave reviews. The women in my book club are especially fond of the double nickel salad. Service was friendly and reasonably prompt. Separate checks were all correct; which has been a problem for my group in some other restaurants. My friends will be glad to go back to the Rusty Bucket again.
I had made a mistake in the reservations, but the staff was very understanding and friendly while trying to accommodate us which they did. Everyone enjoyed their drinks and dinner and the staff was very attentive to us. I wish they were closer to Noblesville and we'd be weekly customers for sure!
The food is always good no matter what we have. The service has always been good.
Food was great . Service excellent. Had problem with reservation. Reserved a booth , my wife was temporarily hand caped from knee replacement. They had erroneously given our table away but got us seated and found a booth and moved us to the new booth. Was very pleased.
Server was at tentative and pleasant. Hamburger good. Wings—so so. Wouldn’t order them again. Noisy, but it was ok
Fish tacos were really good. Great service as well.
We like the Rusty Bucket. The service and food is top notched.
This was our first trip to the Rusty Bucket and Levi was our waiter. He done a GREAT job ...He explained things on the menu. He was patience waiting on us to order and that took us a bit😊all in all it was a great experience. We will defiantly be back.
Casual atmosphere, but they take reservations which is lovely! Family friendly - saw many people in there with their children, yet the restaurant was not noisy at all (in fact I hardly noticed the children) and the overall volume was truly kind of shocking how quiet it was for the size of the room and how busy it was. Service and food were both very good - high quality, casual eats at reasonable prices. I had forgotten about this place but will be sure to return. A very good experience!
We were meeting friends and loved the half priced appetizers and pizza
Did not care for the fried pickle appetizer. The burger and tenderloin were good. We would like it try it again.
Best chicken parmigiana ever! It was so good I ate it with my bare hands in my hotel room! I lost the silverware
The place was really great,the food was delicious server was wonderful her name was Katiewhen even though there was televisions on, it was quiet.
Great food, as always! Love their brunch as well as lunch/dinner menu.
Enjoyed the food very much. My friends and I are going to to put it in the return box. Brandon did an excellent job with waiting on us. Food was well presented, seasoned nicely, and delicious. Very nice atmosphere, spacious and perfect for good conversations.
Food was very good, came in a timely manner. Our female server (forgot her name) was very friendly and helpful!
Had a first date here during a blizzard. Staff was very pleasant and accommodating given the circumstances.
You guys rock. We are a party of 7 that dines with you on average once every 2-3 weeks. The service and food are always excellent. Keep up the good work!
greatservice, good food, friendly-only problem was the direct tv went out during the colts game
The food was cooked exactly the way we all liked it! I like medium rare. It's had to get for some reason. I told the waiter what I wanted, he suggested I order my burger rare. It was perfect!
For a night meal past 8pm I was dismayed that there were so many little children there. I was hoping for a more adult type atmosphere. For the most part, the children were ok, typical crying (that late) and not liking what was served to them, I guess.
When I'm having an expensive meal ($30.00 for a burger, sweet potato fries and 2 drinks, plus tip) and out for relaxing drinks, I don't want crying kids around me. Yes, I have 8 grandchildren. They go to McDonalds or someplace for kids. No problem.
Although the food and service was great, I won't go back for relaxation.
This restaurant is a great neighborhood place to enjoy a good casual meal.
ND was disappointing
This is a great restaurant. We entertained family. Seating for 10 in separate room. Food was very good with an excellent selection. Wait staff was busy so there was a delay in order taking. Food for 10 was delivered in order in a very short time. We had a good time.
