Food was good! Did not all come out at the same time (even sending out partial meals), and one person had to wait an extra 15 minutes for her food. Staff was excellent, as were the desserts!
Charlie was a fantastic server for our party, including our little girl.
Stopped by before heading to the ballpark. Service, food, ambiance were all excellent. Fish tacos were particularly good!
FOOD WAS GOOD WITH NICE SELECTION AND KIDS MEAL CHOICES TOO
Good was cold and tasteless
Two people had meatloaf and said it was good.
One if them ordered French Onion Soup, which was served luke warm and had to be heated up.
Trio option was good, but sandwich bread was slightly soggy from mayo. Probably because I asked for chili to come first and the kitchen/staff isn't set-up to prepare this offering in phases. I did not complain, this was a minor issue.
Cost of offerings and the atmosphere are in line with similar style restaurants.
Our server was so nice and food was great!
Our waitress was very good. Drinks were very weak. I asked for a double and received 3/4’s ice in a tall glass! My husband ordered a bourbon on the rocks and his too was very light with lots of ice. It was way too expensive for what we received. The food was great though.
The Juicy Lucie and Pierogi (cheese & potato dumpling, polish kraut, garlic cream, bacon butter) Happy Hour special is yummy.
Brittney our waitress was wonderful. Management was attentive! But we received the wrong order. I would definitely go back!
Server was great and food as well.
Was a perfect place to celebrate Mother’s Day after a little golf - food & drinks were excellent!! We will be back!!!
Food: Salmon, rigatoni, wings and especially the Brussels Sprouts was very good. Prices a little expensive for bar food, but reasonable for what you would pay at a more upscale restaurant. Service was very pleasant with no issues (though probably a bit understaffed, given Mothers Day.)
The food and service was outstanding!! My family (5 kids included ages11,12,13,15&16) and I absolutely loved it! We will definitely be back in the future
Our server Chavez was attentive and friendly with our big family (6 kids). They have plenty of large booths to accommodate us. The menu has something for everyone, even our pickiest. Rusty Bucket definitely fills that spot for us for casual, comfortable food. My son said it was the best fish and chips he’s had. I enjoy the Buffalo chicken sandwich and the Cuban. Husband likes the tenderloin sandwich. We will be back!
Good dinner but a bit crowded. They did try and spread out the tables
Dinner with family
Our waitress was amazing and friendly!!
Menu had a good variety of options...including some healthly choices. Food was very good.
We always enjoy the Rusty Bucket. The codwich sandwich is really good. My wife had the philly cheese steak and she really liked it.
Great service, great food! Everything was great.
This was our first time at a Rusty Bucket and we were very pleased. Menu and drink selection are huge. Had a reservation so we were seated quickly. Waitress says right over to get our drink order and discuss apps. Drinks were out quickly followed by our app. We got the nachos which were great and huge.
For mains I got s Reuben and my wife got fish and chips. My sandwich was amazing and my side of sweet potato fries were probably the best I've ever had. Seasoned great, crunchy on the outside yet fluffy on the inside.
My wife's fish was great but her regular fries fell flat. They weren't as well prepared as mine. Not bad though. The sweet potato fries had set the bar to high maybe.
The place was clean and adhering to all Covid guidelines if that is important to others. Will definitely be back again.
Buffalo chicken sandwich and fried pickles were really good. Not the best spot to watch a sports game
Starting out waiter spilled a beer all over my husband and trout he was doing us a favor by not charging us for it. Meanwhile my husband’s shoes are ruined and he had to pick broken glass out of his pants. Will not go back. Very disappointed and food was cold and overpriced.
Our server was Chavez. He was amazing, very attentive. Our food was good! Unfortunately the bar was extremely slow so we had to get out last drinks to go! Understand things happen, we waited almost 20 minutes for a sangria. Won’t be our last visit!
Service was quick, server was outstanding, and the menu is extensive - the children's menu is the best I've ever seen!
The Rusty Bucket is a fun place to hang out. The drink selection is good, the food selection is good. The food was delicious and presented well, and the service was outstanding.
The servers were very welcoming and friendly. While my food tasted great, I felt like portions were very small and I was surprised it did not come with any additional sides.
Great place to meet and watch a game.
My first time to the Rusty bucket. let me say that I really appreciated the way your reservation system works. We arrived at our table was ready for us. We had the peel and eat shrimp, having your wings and beer cheese hamburger. All were cooked to perfection. Your facilities were clean and the wait staff was attentive. I will be back.
Went for my birthday. I think the manager came over right away to get our drink order. Food was really good. Our server was also part of the bar staff, had to ask another server for water and waited awhile for a second drink. We will go back for sure. It’s a cool place.
Our server was outstanding and was very pleasant and friendly. It helped to make it an enjoyable meal
Great Bar Food and good place to watch sports. Great Service.
Great food and great service, especially happy hour.
Great pizza and salads. Service was very attentive. Great place to grab a quick bite and drink.
Made a reservation for outdoor dining. When I got there, they said they had given their only outdoor table to a walk-in. “Sorry.”
GREAT service and food! Nice, small, cozy restaurant.
Very accommodating to let me have my small dog on the patio. Excellent cosmo, burgers. Waitress familiar with menu and spot on with details. Friendly and efficient service really made the difference.
