We ordered a Chicken Quesadilla and two Nickel Salads! Everything was splendid! The food was hot and fresh -- and our server Nick was fantastic. We will be back again!
Our server, Morgan, was very nice, helpful, and pleasant.
We were seated immediately, but after getting our beverages (water) and putting in our order, it seemed as though we had to wait a bit longer than usual. The food, I ordered the Soy-glazed Salmon with Sticky Rice, was absolutely wonderful. I had been looking forward to being out and about, dining in a restaurant, and having this particular dish. I was not disappointed.
It was just ok tried the pizza not that great
We were there for restaurant week. The deal was awesome . Loved the Brussel sprouts appetizer. Got the salmon which was awesome then bread pudding ( it was just right not overally sweet ) . It was so good! I left so stuffed . Probably one of my favorite restaurant week deals. I had never had their salmon but will definitely get it again . So so good
Our server was fun and an attentive. He made helpful suggestions to help me order and the food was incredible. The new brussels are a hit!
My husband and I go 2 to 4 times a month.The first time I had the chili I was hooked. It’s rich and thick with just the right seasoning and served with tortilla chips. Once we tried the Brussels sprouts they were tender and green in the middle and crispy on the outside and drizzled with a light lemon aioli, pulled high on a plate more than enough for two and we always wish we had more. Took our granddaughter there for her 21 birthday and our daughter. Grandaughter picked the brownie molten chocolate with ice cream, she was very disappointed. It seemed to be slightly puffed up around the edges and looked good but when she dug in with her spoon the whole bottom looked like raw dough she could drip it off her spoon, no one wanted it. When we asked the waiter he told us that was the way it was supposed to be and other people half also questioned it. We have never had dessert there and now would try any. We would definitely go back because we lovea love if there other dishes. I just wouldn’t take anyone else for there birthday.
New Year’s Eve dinner
Always our go to happy hour spot. The staff is amazing. The prices are fair and lots of alcohol choices.
My husband and I love eating at Rusty Bucket, I wish we were close enough to get home delivery. My favorite is the fish dinner, I always ask for the beer battered fish be changed to Pablo crusted instead like on their fish sandwich and that is never a problem. Trying to get away from too many carbs I get their broccoli In place of the French fries and I love it. Always good size portions, I never leave hungry. My husband and I also love their chili, better than any other restaurant.
Great food, awesome server, a bit crowed especially for COVID
the food tasted amazing. the service was friendly & fast. the manager did a table touch. overall was just what we were looking for. will be back!
Beautiful day for patio dining. No umbrellas remaining so sat in sun for delicious meal
Always great food, table on time and outside as requested. Took a little longer to get waited on I initially but once we were it was all good. Can’t go wrong with Rusty Bucket.
Salmon cooked to perfection. Reserved booth ready on arrival. Excellent server
Good food, good atmosphere, good value. Its an easy place to get in and out of but parking can be tough if busy
Everything about Rusty Bucket was fantastic!! Our son attends Capital University in Bexley OH and this will definitely be our go-to restaurant when visiting him!
Very good brunch with the exception of the 4 egg omelet. It looked to be a 2 egg omelet at best. Was the smallest meal at our table for brunch entrees.
The burrito & chicken & waffles was very good!
Great atmosphere. Service was excellent. Food was fair.
The brussels sprouts are amazing and so is the blackened salmon salad. Staff are always friendly and great.
They're open inside! YAY
Same good food. Great waitress. With or without a reservation they'll welcome you with open arms.
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!
First inside experience during covid19. They did a great job following protocol and we felt safe. Food as always is very good comfort style. Very few tunings to go wrong and rarely does. All was good tonight, good service as always. The ambiance, piled up tables inside, made it look terrible. I am sure it has changed since making it more visually appealing given the necessary spacing changes. But food and service, solid.
Burger came out wrong , 2nd time in a week
A comfortable spot with a good selection. The staff is attentive and responsive.
Went here on a date, was seated quickly, waitress was friendly and attentive. I had the baja tacos which was the perfect amount of food.
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.
Rusty Bucket is great for a group. The new menu is fun! Our meals were delicious. Thanks for taking reservations on a busy Friday night!
