Back room where we were was full of loud children. Very difficult for a hearing impaired guest.
Food was good (salad) but not special. Pricey for what was served.

Pork tenderloin sandwich & turkey burger, both amazing as well as fries were crisp, hot and seasoned to perfection. Server (Nick) was very accommodating, friendly, and attentive! Will definitely return!

All was good except we were in a booth for 2 with a large party at a table next to us, so close that a chair from that table was only about 5 inches from my seat in the small booth - too close, the server could not even get through that space to check on us, but had to just stick his head around or go all the way around

A quick grab and great food and great service - felt like a burger and Rusty Bucket delivered. Service was there with recommendations and attentive yet not over bearing. My wife and I were stressed with running around and thought let's see if RB has openings - Open Table a great way to pick a restaurant on the fly. Again, good food, drink and people - everything is great

Always a great late Friday stop for our large group. Jeremey serves us well! And he remembers everyone’s order without notes. Not that we expect from every waiter, but Jeremey has a special talent.

The food and drinks were excellent. Our server was either completely overwhelmed or didn't care about his job. The restaurant did not look busy enough for the wait time between seeing him. My wife and I both ran out of our drinks before the food arrived and finished our food before the next round got to the table.

Overall, good. Unfortunately, veggie burger was mediocre (not as good as Burger King) and the whole wheat bun was stale.

Our host/server Jeremy asked and received permission from the manager to open the front “garage doors” on this beautiful day, giving us a patio type dining experience that we wanted. We really appreciated him going the extra step for us. And the food is always to our liking. The item ordered by our guest looked so good that my wife and I will expand on our list of favorites to try it next time.

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.
