We had some bad meals, the server was no where to be found and took about 20 min to follow up, so we settled for what was served.

We consistently enjoy Rusty Bucket, Plymouth, because it has a fun atmosphere. The wait staff is always attentive. Last meal there was just soup and salad. We had some great drinks as well. Their burgers are very good, too. We go back as often as possible.

We have been coming here for many years as we can walk to the restaurant. In the last year or so there has been a serious deterioration in the quality of food.

The menu is virtually unchanged over the years but the ingredients used in many of the dishes have been reduced, are of an inferior quality and in many cases seemed to have been hanging about for a long time before they get served.

There is something that has changed in kitchen / quality of food / the way it is prepared over the last couple of years.

Would be interested in others experiences ......or a sense from the restaurant

Great service. Pub food. They take reservations for Saturday night which was very helpful because we had theater tickets for after dinner (8 people). Timing was important and there was no delays seated promptly.

We walked in and I could tell immediately it was my kind of place. Lively, friendly and casual. We were immediately seated in a comfortable booth and our server was at our table soon afterwards. TVs all over with all kinds of sports games playing. It’s got a high-energy vibe but not super noisy. We could actually have a conversation and hear each other. I ordered the beer cheese burger and it was perfect. Yum! The onion rings weren’t the best I’ve had but the burger made up for it. My husband got the fish and chips and liked that they were fried with a thin layer of batter. Good beer and wine selections. Oh! Their specialty salad (can’t recall the name now) was FABULOUS! Crisp, cold greens, real bacon, blue cheese, thinly shaved red onion and a delicious sweet light dressing. We’ll be coming back here often!

We had very good service. Food was very good, but not all hot foods arrived at proper health department food temperatures. They need more controls in place. With current thermometer technology there is no excuse to serve food below the proper food safe temperatures. Other than this issue, we were very happy with our dining experience.

Service was very good. Food was good. The thin pizza was very good as was the fish and chips. One person had meatloaf and did not care much for it. The happy hour burger was very good but did not come with fries. The restaurant was fairly loud but typical for today's restaurants.

Enjoy the hamburgers and onion rings. Have had the Green Chili Burger several times. It’s topped with beer cheese, serrano and jalapeno relish. I get the pepper relish on the side. Double Nickel salad was very good as well.
