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!
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!
Wonderful Saturday night at Rusty Bucket. Great service and food as always; you can count on that!

Always a great experience! Bartenders Julia and Morgan are amazing!
Great food and prices, especially during happy hour. Our server, Karley was delightful. We love going to Rusty Bucket!
~I love that I was able to make a reservation for New Year’s Eve. Soon as we got there they seated us. I would definitely do that again!!
We went for dinner before the New Year. We had reservations and heard several people trying to be sat that didn’t have reservations. Good thing we used open table 😉 They were quite busy so food was slow to come after we had ordered but we weren’t in a hurry so it was no big deal. Seems like the bar area always runs with a slim staff.
My husband was so pleased with his meal (chicken parm) that he joked about getting another order!
Food was excellent. Had vegan options and server was friendly and attentive. Thoroughly enjoyable meal.
Good great food
Weird prob weird our bill/tip, but hopefully it was resolved. Food and service was great.
Service was not so great
Great food as usual
Great service and friendly staff. Enjoyed bottle of wine on half price Tuesday. Can’t beat that. Felt safe and distance enough between tables.
Great evening as always at the Bucket! Enjoyed a nice glass of wine and a great meal.
Great food, service and ambiance. Server was very helpful. Always a favorite.
Everything was amazing: food, service and outdoor seating area. We had chicken parm, salmon entree, and meatloaf. All were outstanding. The desserts were the highlight of the evening. We highly recommend the sticky bun bread pudding! Yum!!
Excellent dinner experience...service was great, manager helped navigate us to an outdoor table which was very much appreciated; and as always food was excellent!
Great service by the bartender. Fabulous martini
At first, we had to wait 15 minute to get waited on and the restaurant was not busy at all. But thankfully the bartender came over and apologized and took our orders. I ordered the Margarita Pizza, only to be told that the restaurant ran out of Mozzarella.
I made a reservation for my birthday and they sat us in the bar area. Noise was pretty loud and we had to keep multiple flies from landing on our food. Pretty disappointed to spend my birthday with my kids and have this happen!
Great outside venue
Great! Friendly and delicious food
Hey thanks for the nice compliment! Hope to see you again soon!
All was good nothing to add . This part of the review should be eliminated if you want people to leave a review at all.
Great food as always! Felt perfectly safe visiting during the COVID pandemic.
Food, service and atmosphere are excellent! It would be great if umbrellas for the patio could be upgraded to a larger more comfortable versions to provide more shade.
our server was excellent. everyone was very accomadating. The food was good, and nice sized portions. The experience was great!
