    Thank you to our server. The chili soup was great. I do have to ask why they don’t serve Modelo having a big shiny light sign hanging on the wall. Burger I recommend not having it medium, that was my mistake. They had baseball on TV which was greatly appreciated.

    Queso app took literally an hour! For cheese!!! Apparently cook dropped it and had to start over. Waiter raved about Hoosier Daddy Pork Sandwich and promised I'd love it-portion was huge but flavor MEH and bland. No seasoning in batter-just flavor of (clean) oil. Def wouldn't get again. Never came back with refills for drinks until end of meal. Usually a 4 or 5 star but today, a 3. Shoulda just gotten ny club sandwich that I love!

    Really good dining experience. Rusty Bucket is one of the few places my whole family ( 20 and 17 yo ) agrees upon. Great service, nicely curated LOCAL craft beer selection. Food was tasty and came out quickly. Wonderful low-stress family meal after a long day at work.

    Good Brussels sprouts. My son had the cheese pizza, and it was more than enough for one teenager. Bacon burger was good, but the wings are better.

    We were scheduled 18 days out for the Bengal Room and on the day of our reservation we were told we could not have it. We were given a nice table in a quiet area that worked out for us and our server was excellent.

    The reservation was ready when we arrived on a busy Friday night. The service was prompt with enough staff to serve all the guests. My wife's salmon was done to perfection while my steak was slightly dry. The chocolate cake was delicious.

    First timers, food wasn’t too bad. Wings and deep fried pickles were great, Rueben excellent as well as the fish n chips. Taco salad was not even close to a taco salad and the server just ‘sucked’. Saw her a total of 3 times . Once to get drinks, take order and bring check..we had to flag her down for drink refills. She brought one and the rest of us went thirsty! Not sure if we’ll give it a second try. I would’ve expected this if it was busy being Mother’s Day. But place was half empty , so that’s no excuse.

    Our waiter was terrible. You could tell she was hating life. Our drinks were literally missing ice. Whenever she took our order she didn’t take notes and would look around at other tables. She acted annoyed. She would constantly disappear and we would have to get up and find her. It’s took 15-25 minutes to get refills. Food was great.

    Was at the table for 25 minutes never received any service or drink order. Servers walked by without acknowledging us. The restaurant was not that busy, now I know why, we left as well. Would not recommend.

    I’m never disappointed with a meal at Rusty Bucket! Had one of my favorites, a Duo with great onion soup in a crock and the double nickel salad. Sometimes I will get the Trio which adds a half Turkey club sandwich to eat the next day. Service was very good.

    Our party of 13 was taken so well care of. From the moment we entered the restaurant until we left, service was outstanding and our meals were flavorful and delicious. Being a former server, I notice things most won’t. No one had to ask for a refill. That’s epic with a party of our size! Great experience. We will return!

    Love to visit Rusty Bucket for their diverse menu. Unfortunately, their menu has changed drastically and they now only offer bar food. They took a lot of their healthier options off.

    Restrooms were clean and well stocked. Dining room was clean. Parking lot was clean and clear of debris. Greeted promptly and sat promptly upon arrival. Greeted promptly by server and drink order taken. Drink arrived in timely manner. Although I was waiting on another guest (2 top) and the restaurant was fairly empty, I had to flag down the server to order an appetizer. Guest arrived and it took some time to place our food order. Restaurant was half full. Very friendly server appeared rushed but not busy. Food was very good and came in a timely fashion after ordering. Check was dropped off and payment processed in a timely manner.

    We enjoyed our food but we sat in front of a window and we got cold. Had to put our coats over our shoulders. The waitress was very attentive but we ended up paying for someone else’s juicy Lucy burger. Would definitely return for another meal but will check our bill more carefully.
