This was a great time to go. I thought with it being restaurant week, it would be busy and we would have to wait. It was not as busy as I thought it was going to be and the food was great!

I visited Rusty Bucket for the first time since the pandemic started. It’s always been a favorite but I came away very disappointed this time. The food was still good, but the service was not up to par. We were seated at a table that was very dirty and had not been wiped down. Asked the waiter to take care of that which he begrudgingly did. The server had no personality and while I didn’t expect him to become my best friend, he could have been a little more congenial. When the food came out, he brought only 3 of the 4 dishes, which in my mind is not acceptable. The person who didn’t have he food insisted the rest of us start, but it felt awkward to do that so we sat uncomfortably waiting for the 4th dish to arrive. We had to flag down the waiter several times during the course of the meal, as opposed to the waiter stopping by occasionally to ask if everything was ok. Having invited out of town guests to enjoy a nice meal out at a favorite restaurant, I was a little embarrassed by the overall experience.

Normally we rate this Rusty Bucket a straight five. However when we checked in for our reservation, there seemed to be a lot of confusion. The Hostesses did not seem to know about how to handle open table reservations. We were seated immediately as the resturant was not filled. Then we got a text message to check in with the hostess for our table. Then I got an email from open table about our no show for our reservation. The food and service were great but the resturant has issues taking and handling reservations. My advice, be extremely careful when checking with a reservation.

We had the best server (Carl) that provided us with AWESOME service all evening. He deserves a special kudos not only from the 8 of us that he attended to all evening, but also from the staff and management at The Rusty Bucket!! Great job Carl!!! We hope we get you the next time we come through!

A quick bite with the foamily. From salads to burgers and fish/chips, every one was satisfied. The staff was attentive and checked in on us the right amount. It is a great place for families and friends to get together. The updated menu came at us as a surprise, but we all found something we could sink our teeth into. Doesn't appear they have the daily menu specials, but maybe I didn't catch it on the menu (drink specials were there). Always a pleasure and worth the visit.

Had lunch, it was very cool outside, the fireplace was burning, nice touch. Server was very attentive. There were three of us and we each ordered something different, all good. I live in Worthington but travel to Dublin to enjoy a nice meal.
