    The staff was friendly and polite. We were seated right away. We waited a long time to get our meal. When it came, my food was cold. I understand that there may be a shortage of help at the restaurant; however, the cold food did not equal the price I paid. I was disappointed in my meal. I will go back to this restaurant because the food is usually very good. One off night will not keep me from making a return trip.

    ordered fish n chips got 1 piece of fish and 1 small piece of chicken. $ 18.99 Told the manager she offered a piece of fish. said no. We had already waited 45 minutes on our food and they hadn't got busy yet. I was in the bar and food business. I know what I would have done and I know what a good manager would have done. Won't be going back for some time if ever

    Didn't seem like a very welcoming place. The tuna in the Poke bowl didn't seem fresh and the overall flavor was awful. Wings and chicken strips were good. Slow service, didn't check on us much and never asked if we liked the food. Even after taking our plates and MI e had barely been touched. Won't be back.

    We were disappointed with our service. When we put in our order, it was 45 minutes before we got our food. No one ever stopped by to tell us there was a delay. It was disappointing.

    I understand staff shortages, but I guess there comes a point where if you continue to let patrons in with said shortages, the food and the service will ultimately suffer, which is what I believe happened on our visit.

    Have been a few times for Happy Hour and its very busy. Like that they allow happy hour anywhere in the restaurant and not just the bar. Wonderful price on apps and pizzas during this time. Try the fried pickles and the double nickel salad!

    Our server was good she could improve by asking if you wanted desert before bringing the check. The guy that brought the food to the table was not very nice and not friendly at all. I try ink he was another waiter Don’t know his name but the only man with like blue Mohawk hair.

    The club sandwich is really good. Brought our two grandsons for their birthday. They each got to pick a dessert. That was nice. The chicken strips were a little over cooked. The French onion soup is over priced for what you get. We had reservations and got right in. Quick service. We were in and out within an hour.

    I don't like their food. The side of mac and cheese looked and tasted like plastic. Their veggie burgers aren't as good as similar restaurants. The best thing about Rusty Bucket is the location and facility.

    The food was very good. But it took fifty minutes to get our dinner which we thought was too long for what we ordered. Hopefully next time that won’t happen.

    We “got in line” before leaving the house. Checked in when we got there just to be sure. Then waited over 45 minutes when the hostess was telling new walk ups 20 min wait. I swear I think that she was pulling parties from the bottom of the list instead of the top. Outside of that, everything was pretty good. Would have been 4* Good food, great ambiance, good service. Will definitely go back.

    We went for my daughters 24th Birthday. For was great. Our favorite appetizer of ALL TIME is your Fried Pickles. We got two of them. Delicious. Everything was really good, you all were out of straws, that was kind of weird but the food was excellent and so was the service.

    The service was very good, but the food is marginal. I don’t understand why cooks/chefs think everything has to have heat. My french fries were covered with pepper. The nickel salad has completely changed. The dressing was over sweet, there was no blue cheese., and it was served in a deep bowl instead of a plate as it used to be. The added chicken was almost invisible. My Berger bun was greasy.
