Everything was great
My wife and I wanted something simple yet well prepared for our 51st wedding anniversary. We are very satisfied with the meal and service from Mitch. It was a pleasant experience.
We were left waiting for a server for 10-15 minutes even though the restaurant wasn’t very busy. Once we were able to get someone’s attention, she did a good job; very attentive. The food was good and the noise level wasn’t bad.
Just ok. Food and service was alright, there are better places to go in the Upper Arlington area.
Friendly place. Good food. Good service. The music is normally too loud (in my opinion) but last night it was at a reasonable volume.
Colin provided great service! We were so happy to be back dining in at the Bucket.
Service was horrible.
We were celebrating my sister in-laws birthday. We had great food and a great server in Quiiten at the Upper Arlington Rusty Bucket.
Great food and service. Good value.
First time going to this location, great place, people and food
We love Rusty Bucket. Always good good and service.
Food was good unfortunately was a brand new server. He did his best & he'll get better.
Prices were great. The food left something to be desired. The chili seemed canned. The pierogis were good. The slider was ok.
I think our server had too many tables.
Was very nice and good location! We went here for Mother's Day and had great service. Waiter was very attentive!
Haven’t been in for awhile and great to get back. Double Nickel salad is best in the city.
Food selection was perfect for a patio lunch with a friend.
Great service and food.
Service was extremely slow - took almost 1 hour for a salad and pizza
The restaurant had no social distancing at the bar. They put us at a table by the bar and it was so noisy because of all the people sitting there.
Dinner was great and the ambiance was perfect for what the restaurant is. Good food, good service.
Nice dinner. Good portions. Just felt a little rushed.
Food was good. My friends spicy chicken sandwich looked delicious and he said it was. The fish on my friends cod fish sandwich looked a bit small. Not the classic flowing out each side of the bun fried fish sandwich. I had the meatloaf which was ok. The gravy was a bit thick and institutional (think HS cafeteria gravy). Other meals I've had there were much better. Pizzas are good. Spicy chicken sandwich. Chicken Parmesan.
The food was delicious and fast. Madison was a wonder server.
This place does not know the meaning of social distance in a pandemic, and it puts people at risk. There are a number of other restaurants that apply social distancing effectively, and I recommend you go there instead.
Have enjoyed dining at 2 of the other locations but didnt enjoy our dinner at this location. Three of us dined here - only 1 thought the food was good. App (spinach queso) not much flavor, entrees (turkey club, cheesesteak) just meh. Even the dessert (choc lava cake w ice cream) wasnt good - cake was dry and the 1 scoop of ice cream wasnt enough bc you needed it for every bite of the dry cake. First and last time we'll go there. Also, place was pretty crowded - all booths were occupied so you have a full booth of people right around the corner from where you are sitting. The booths had plexiglass between them but there's a space all along the bottom of the plexiglass so it seems a little useless. There were a few less tables but that seemed to be the only difference in the floor layout. Server was nice & attentive.
We were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the Salmon my wife had, and the Stroanoff that I had. The server was a pleasant convesationalist and prompt with the food. It was good to be out again as the Covid crush is passing. Overall a great experience.
Amazing food, amazing service!! We loved it here!!
We like to try new places. Table was ready when we checked in. Would go back. Food was great. Recd check but then didn’t see waitress for 40 minutes. Was a long time to wait to pay. Could have had another drink! Lol.
Service was terrible. I never got my salad. Crowded very little social distancing
My husband and I ordered salads. He ordered Salmon salad. I ordered Cobb salad. After a very LONG wait they arrived with my salad missing chicken and avocados. His salad missing avocados. If I read the menu right, should have been on the salads. We had to flag our waitress to right the situation. Our waitress was a very nice girl and quite busy. However, we had to flag her again when we were ready to pay.
Always get a good meal at Rusty Bucket.. service was good.
Both my daughter and I had a new power bowl. It was excellent!
The Rusty Bucket is a good place to eat... the food will be good and the noise level will be fine. The Upper Arlington location struggles with service at times. About every third or fourth visit it will take a while to get the food our or the odds are you won't see your server more than three times -- I'm not sure what it is it's just the way it is -- that said, if you know that going in, it's fine.
Our server Morgan was very attentive and served us well.
Our Server was working a lot of tables, so we had to ask if our food was ready. Food was not as "hot" as it should ha e been, but still good.
Our waitress was amazing and the food and atmosphere was great. Went on New Years Eve and it wasn't overly crowded so it was a nice time.
good service good food, and covid protocol was followed very good also
Nice plan to watch the game with good beers and food!
Great food, great service!!
