    The service was exceptional, Christina was very attentive and professional. The food was great, all timed perfectly! We ordered 4 appetizers and weren't rushed at all. It was a great evening overall. We couldn't asked for a better overall experience then we had being a group of 8. Definitely would recommend this location. Totally a favorite!!

    Went at happy hour and it was packed! I little confusion with the drink order but again, they were every busy. If you want more than 1 round during happy hour, get there early. BUT worth going because the prices were great and the food was outstanding.

    My wife and I really like this place. Great food. Wait staff is always prompt and friendly, management is very attentive. One of us usually orders the Double Nickle Salad and shares, she had a Slider as well and glass of Merlot. I had the Bucket, a juicy burger with a Stella, and ordered a side of fries to share. Definitely not good for quiet conversation. It's a bit loud but we keep coming back for the many remaining positive experiences.

    Always a hit with the family.... They have changed up their menu several times over the years, and there are several dishes I DO miss, but what they do they do well, so there's always something like a burger or pizza to fit the bill.

    We enjoyed our dinner at the Upper Arlington location and had a great server Rachel. She recommended great drinks, and all the food was ordered correctly. The only thing not pleasant was when the TV by our table came on blasting super loud. It was turned to the NFL draft but was extremely loud. Once someone turned it down it was much better. I really like that all the workers seemed to be happy to help each other out with delivering food, etc.

    Restaurant was extremely crowded. Despite having a reservation, we had to wait and I had to “remind” the hostess that we still hadn’t been seated 20 minutes later. Understandably, the wait staff and bar were overwhelmed. I ordered my salmon medium well and it arrived rare. My drink took 15-20 minutes. The recipes for some of the dishes have changed and I didn’t like the new “iteration” of the blackened salmon salad. All in all, not a great experience.

    I was in the area for a dance competition & meg my niece & her family for dinner. Our server & the hostess were wonderful. My daughter’s chicken was not good & all the burgers ordered were over cooked & not as good as other Locations. There also were far fewer fries served with them than other locations. But we enjoyed the rest of the food & had a wonderful visit.

    We had a great table for 8 on the patio by the fireplace on a chilly, windy day but it was quite comfortable. Our cheerful server was very accommodating in getting the kids meals entered quickly. Everyone enjoyed the Buffalo Cauliflower app and their meals which included the fish & chips, meatloaf, and poke bowl (yum!). The manager even offered to take our family photo in front of the fireplace afterwards. The atmosphere, service, food quality and portions all exceeded our expectations. Way to go Rusty Bucket!

    The Bucket struggled a little the past few months - service was slower than normal and there were small food issues. That seems to have been corrected. Everything was back to normal!

    Solid casual dining experience for the family. Good bar and full liquor selection. Many tv's, so sporting events like the March Madness tournament can be viewed, though not heard, by nearly every seat in the place. Good service, though a bit of a wait for the food on busy weekend nights. Very broad menu of comfort and bar foods. Better than average bar/restaurant from a chain franchise known for delicious comfort food and strong drinks.
