Husband and I enjoyed our meals- we had never been before but look forward to going again. I settled on something v simple-but not all veggie burgers are the same!! Yum! It was great. my husband enjoyed a pasta dish and some broccolini. The veg was exceptional. Only downside was dessert - but we are picky. Maybe we didn’t choose well.
Garrett did a great job serving us.
As always…. GREAT!!!
It was great! The server was providing excellent service.
Great for New Years Eve. Levi, as always, was a wonderful server.
All was good except our food was not hot - barely warm. Seemed like it had been sitting under the warmer too long. :( very unusual - we come often
The service personnel were attentive and friendly. All four of us loved our food that was served. We will definitely be back!
Place was packed with Friday night diners. Service was fast and friendly!
Service was lackluster, at best. The food was okay—though my chicken was over cooked.
Tyree was a great server!
Thanks to Rusty Bucket Restaurant and Tavern for STELLAR customer service -Nancy in particular deserves 🙌🏻 for handling the party room AND the adults seated at three large tables outside the room -THIRTY of us in total, with patience, grace, wit and efficiency!!! OH and as if that wasn’t enough, the food (as always) was amazing!!! If you haven’t, check them out -Ask for managers Pat or Sam if you need anything special and they’ll hook ya up. Tell ‘em I sent ya 😉 -Shelby Weiss-Kaufmann
Glad to see it finally crowded. Managers pitch in. Good riddance of oil table clothes. Never had a bad meal.
First time there. Found on internet. Food was good and hot and on time. Great service. Very, very nice place. Wish I lived closer. Will definitely go back when in town.
Rusty was not what I thought it would be. Definitely more of a neighborhood bar. Our server was great and I thought he really did a lovely job taking care of our group. This is definitely a local place - the food is good. Several people had the salmon and said it was fantastic. The variety is good - it's just not one of my normal go to places.
This place is amazing this was our second visit and it was just as outstanding as the first. Staff is polite, service was great and food is delicious. We love it here!!!
This is fantastic to hear! Thanks for the great feedback!
Our waiter, Tyree, was wonderful. He was attentive without being overbearing.
Tyree rocks! Thanks for the compliment and we hope to see you again soon!
Beer is really expensive. $4.29 for a 12 oz bottle of much ultra….
Great food selection and the turnaround of the kitchen was quick! The server was okay, not interested exchanging chitcat, only to make money. This is not what we experienced previously. Reservation is recommended.
Great food & service as always!
We eat at Rusty Bucket at least once a week -if not twice 😉 as it’s like having dinner with family. The wait staff knows your name after once or twice coming in and remembers what you like to eat and drink half the time! It’s awesome! The food is ALWAYS amazing… like how is that possible? You’d think the “law of averages” would kick in at some point, but for us (after years) it has not. The margaritas are stellar! I get it with a sugar rim and an orange slice and it’s bomb! Okay-your turn… make a reservation and GO!!!
The food here is original and very tasty. It's a great place to unwind.
Great as always. Levi and Keegan are great servers. In fact, we’ve never had a bad server there.
Great meal and great time
Hostess wasn't to welcoming, but seemed very busy or something
Our waitor and other staff were great.
Food was awesome
I had the breaded tenderloin and my wife had fish and chips. The fish and chips were quite greasy and seemed to be a lesser quality of fish than what I have had elsewhere. My tenderloin sandwich was quite good but again, I've had better locally. We would probably go again, just stay away from the fish.
Great people watching place. Lots of Sports viewing possibilities. Great drinks and generous portions. I liked this place and will be back.
Everything at this restaurant is usually consistent and really good, but we had the best server this time! His name is Chrys and he was very attentive, made great suggestions and just made our experience even better! I will ask for him to be our server every time now!!
Great local restaurant/bar. Always great food, good service and Fun atmosphere.
Good food , great service!
Very nice visit. We requested a booth and got one. Tyree was exceptional in his service to our table. He should be commended. Nice, casual and friendly place to have a meal.
Reliable and very good. I will be back soon!
We had a team lunch and I was very impressed from Customer service to food …..everything was exceptional. Have already shared my experience with family and friends…
Thank you for your awesome hospitality and attentiveness !!
Excellent food and overall a great evening, we look forward to going back!
There were 6 people and everyone was satisfied with their food. Our server
Chris was Dynamite! Very friendly and very attentive to our table, so appreciated him!
Good food. Good atmosphere. Would order something different next time but wife’s cubano sandwich was awesome!
Great place in the neighborhood! Great service, food and ambiance. Will definitely return...probably often!!!
Rusty Bucket is the best - local watering hole with great food, good service and a friendly atmosphere.
My sirloin steak was delicious and cooked to perfection. I love their Parmesan brussel sprouts!
From the young lady who meets you at the door and shows you to your table to the manager who was helping bring out your food everyone was pleasant and helpful. I got there at 5:30 on a Monday and it was a good thing because by the time my friend arrived st 6 the place was packed. The food was good, hot, and reasonably priced. You could tell it was cooked to order.
Been a long time customer of Rusty Bucket. Even after covid they still have many of same employees that are friendly and ready to wait on you. so many restaurants are short staffed and you have to wait for a table for lack of service. Rusty bucket have plenty and are all amazing.
