    Our server, Ryan, was - once again - great! It was a busy night in the patio, but Ryan never seemed to be rattled. The chicken nachos as our appetizer were super. The turkey Ruben, Cobb salad and sliders were all very good. The Pinot noir and Sauvignon Blanc were tasty and the ice cream hit the spot. The best of all? The screens that were installed on the west side of the patio! Hallelujah! No more burning ears. Thank you!!!

    Food ok. Soft shells on tacos over-warmed and difficult to chew. Pasta serving with chicken Parmesan was small.

    Mashed potatoes taste like instant, broccoli was cold & chicken was probably less than 4oz. Not good!

    We had a great time and our server, Giovanni, was very attentive and personable. Everyone’s food was hot and delicious. We love this location! They have great outdoor seating and were able to accommodate our party of 7 at the time we wanted!

    We love the Bucket. Period. On Friday (a lovely, warm evening in central Ohio) we requested outdoor seating. The host indicated we would be in the sun/-we said okay. Well…after 10 minutes, my left ear was on fire and my spouse’s right was the same. Toward the end of our meal we inquired if we could move the chairs so one of us had our backs to the sun and the other was pretty much blocked from it. Yes! Good to know as we thought it might be a loss control or fire department no-no. Suggestion to management: install light filtering screens between the support pillars to alleviate the hot sun for your patrons and servers. Yes, it will be an expense, but your loyal patrons will thank you and shouldn’t mind an extra $0.50 or $1.00 per entree to offset the cost (which should be covered in no time given the popularity of the restaurant. Thanks for considering.

    Hey there! Thank you for your feedback--we love that you love the Bucket, we love you too! Great news on this front: the sunshades for the patio on the west facing side are approved and scheduled to be installed in the very near future. We have heard our guests' feedback over the years and are excited to be able to provide a solution that will allow extended enjoyment of our patio space even in the Ohio heat. See you soon!

    The patio at Worthington location was VERY loud + w/music, could not here our friends at our 4-top. We all ate quickly and left. Recommend either changing the taco salad or take it off menu. It was terrible. All shredded lettuce, pretty much. Had a few bits of chicken, had cheese, and then the lettuce w/small pieces of tomato. On a large "taco?" for the base. Not like any taco salad we've ever had. Normally we rate a 5-star for the Bucket, but last evening was a disappointment.
