    Promptly seated. Waiter treated my 3 and 5 year old well. Excellent salads, pizza and fries. Quick service, not rushed service, just awareness kids have a wait limit.

    Have been here many times. Food and service usually solid. Tried to have dinner last week and there was a 30 minute wait due to lack of staffing. So we went elsewhere. Last nights service was average, beer was flat, no manager seemed to be present. The entire concept just seems tired. Will look for a better value with better food and service.

    All of our food took forever and was cold when brought to the table. Our waitress was wonderful and not her fault. They comped us part of our dinner to try and makeup for the cold food but we will not hurry back there. They need to get their act together.

    Had reservation at 6:30. Waited 20 minutes for waiter to show up for drink order. Waited another 20 minutes to get our drinks. Ordered food and did get it until 8:15. Ordered dessert and didn’t get it for another 20 minutes. Left restartaunt at 9 PM. I believe the kitchen was the problem. Waiter kept drinks filled.

    This was probably our most disappointing visit to this location. Few patrons should have translated to closer attention to food preparation. Three of us went for the same Sunday brunch special (Braised Short Rib Hash). That included me and I found the meat was dry and the over easy eggs were overcooked (yokes were firm). Perhaps it was their preparation in a cast iron skillet that contributed to it. But I only ate about half of mine. It was that unsatisfying and disappointing. Definitely a let down.

    Other Rusty Buckets seem better... maybe the facilities are newer. Food quality was not good... wife’s hamburger looked like uncooked ground beef. Fish tacos were far to heavily spiced.
