Rusty Bucket is one of my favorites in Columbus. They have the best burgers, fries and chicken tenders. Great, affordable option and a family atmosphere. I will continue to come back for this excellent food/service!

We had a reservation for 5:45pm and we were seated at 6:30pm. I realize it was Valentine's Day but what was the point of making a reservation and waiting 45 minutes when there were many open tables. In my opinion the seating situation could have been handled better.

I'm a big fan of the new menu. My kids enjoy going there, and I've always gone reluctantly, but the Vegan Rice Bowl was delicious. Now my kids can get what they want and I don't have to go along for the ride. Thank you Rusty Bucket! The S'Mores Creme Brûlée was also a crowd pleaser at our table.

Was not expecting high top tables but thankfully our party did not mind even though we had a couple of older people in our party. Our waiter was amazing and kept everyone’s drinks refilled promptly even with a big party like ours. Small snafu in the kitchen where 3 orders did not come out with the rest of the groups meals. However the manager and waiter made it right and all was well. Very good service and food. Lots of food options. Would recommend. If you need special accommodations call ahead to verify.

Everything was great and our server was wonderful, too. I gave a 4 for service because we had to wait longer than I thought we should for drinks and food. The restaurant was really busy so we did understand that.

The food was delicious. The waitress did not come around to check on our drinks and my husband's drink was empty for awhile. Food took awhile to come, but our experience was fine. We will be back.

We had a very large group , almost 30 people and they were very accommodating and service was smooth. We had highchairs, wheelchairs, table moving and the staff was not rattled by our crazy group. They were helpful and so nice.
we were celebrating my Mom's 100th birthday and they made that part of our birthday weekend fun

Our server was extremely attentive and accommodating. We asked what the soup of the day was and if she liked it. She brought us a small sample so that we could decide if we wanted to order the item, which two people in our party did. The food was delicious and came out in a timely manner. We will be back!
