With open table no wait. People came in after us had a 15 minute wait. Food and service always outstanding.
We had the baked potato soup and a side salad, both very good! Service was great, server was very friendly and checked in on us a couple times. We sat outside but there were no umbrellas :(
Our food and service were excellent!
Always great food, great service! Morgan and Julia behind the bar are a great team!
Our Server disappeared for 45 min to talk to another table in the back, one of the cooks had to come take our order. We waited 50min for our food, chicken was over cooked. Took 25min for the waitress to give us the check.
Our wait person was excellent. The kitchen was the slowest we’ve ever experienced at this location.
Good food, good drinks, and good service. Can't ask for much more!
Everything was perfect!!! Thank you..Our waitress was sweet and kind.
Ordered the Tuna Poke bowl. Without a doubt the absolute worst fishy tasting entree I have ever had. I was so looking forward to trying it there as it was new on the menu. Didn’t send it back, but didn’t eat it after the first bite.
Server was very nice and food was excellent. We had a great time!
Table we were seated at was dirty…crumbs on table. The plexiglass behind our booth was filthy dirty. With Covid restrictions lifted, I still expect cleanliness.
As usual the fish on the Codwich was very good however they really need to upgrade the bun. It is too small, crumbled and fell apart when trying eat as a sandwich. I had to use a knife and fork to eat it. Also, although this in not the norm, the french fries were luke warm and soggy as if they were cooked in fryer grease that need to be changed.
Food & service were great, but it was so LOUD! The 6 people next to us were obnoxiously loud, screaming over each other to be heard. We could not even have a conversation. It ruined the experience. When we walked through the bar area, it was noticeably quieter. Not sure how you control the loudmouths, but I don’t think we will be back. Someone should have asked them to be more respectful of the other diners. They were all adults & did not appear to be drunk, just rude.
Service and food wasn’t that great!
Celebrating my best friend's birthday and we were not rushed at all. We had a couple glasses of wine; then ordered dinner. Our server Jason was personable as well as efficient. Jason made recommendations and you could also switch out sides. He also brought my friend a dessert for her birthday. Overall, a lovely birthday dinner.
Our waitress was awful. It took forever for her to come to our table to get drinks and then she forgot two drinks and mixed up one she did bring. Then it took twenty minutes for her to come take our appetizer order and another twenty to get our lunch order. She walked by our table four times with empty glasses on the table without stopping or brining new drinks. Once we got our food it was cold, clearly she had let it sit in the kitchen forever and when she offered to have it remade it was clear they just stuck it on the microwave. She messed up two of the four orders and it took asking three times to get ketchup and refills. And then she had the nerve to tell another waitress as they walked by our table that we were irritating her. Awful experience will not return to the New Albany location.
The food was good, but not great
There was an issue with seating us on the patio. There were several open tables, but they acted like it wasn’t possibility to seat us there. I didn’t appreciate the lack of transparency when we were more than willing to wait for a table outside. Overall I wasn’t happy with how we were treated by the host staff. Our server, however, was fantastic and once we were seated we had a very nice experience.
Great food as always! Server was not attentive.. only came back once to the table and we never received refills. Friendly server and accurate with order but not present. We typically always have great service here so maybe just an off night. Thanks.
Thanks for a great birthday dinner! Excellent service!
The nickel salad with chicken was so fresh and tasty. The fish tacos were flavorful and delicious.
I have visited there before. I always like going there for the food.
My previous experiences at Rusty Bucket were not as good as this one. I just don’t think I was ordering the right thing. I loved it this time. The pierogis will keep me coming back!
Great food and service!! Thank you!
Been coming for about 2 years now bucket of shrimp keep getting smaller and smaller🥲
good food for the money not the best but good for what you pay for would recomend for casual dining
Rusty bucket has been a favorite of mine for years. I’ve been coming here for a long time with friends and family. I took my girlfriend here to celebrate her 16th birthday. Our waitress was very kind to us and even offered us a free dessert to celebrate. We appreciated the service and food quality. Will definitely recommend to a friend and come back again!
Always a fan on this Rusty Bucket, quieter than the other ones, and always good food and friendly service.
Great food great waitress celebrating birthday received free desert how special that was
Rusty Bucket is a great place to celebrate a birthday. We enjoyed the food and our service was excellent!!
We were not seated in the main restaurant area and it was cold and very noisy.
Wonderful celebration at the Bucket...will be back as always!
Always great food at The Bucket
Great dinner and service. I will visit again next time I am in town.
It was great, table was ready and they celebrated our birthdays!
Our server Taylor was not attentive & could care less if we needed anything. The chef actually came to the table to accommodate our requests!
Great meal & great service!!! I'm never disappointed!!!
Great cozy place for happy hour with good cocktails & appetizers
It was great to see familiar faces, Anthony and Brooke, behind the bar! They always treat us so well!!
This was the first time we have eaten in a restaurant since last March and I'm so glad Rusty Bucket is where we chose! We felt safe and comfortable. Our server was friendly and attentive. The food was delicious! Well done Rusty Bucket New Albany!
