It's what every neighborhood needs. A fun, fast, and friendly place to dine, celebrate, or just hang. And be all of those things to families, children, singles, grandparents, students and business people. That's the thinking behind the concept of the Rusty Bucket Restaurant and Tavern. And it's what you'll find in every corner of each and every one. From the menu - a combination of updated familiar favorites designed to delight food lovers of every type and age - to the warmth of the naturalistic decor, underscored by a staff that embodies Genuine Hospitality, Rusty Bucket feels immediately familiar and comfortable to anyone that walks in.

good fallback for comfort food

Sometimes you want something smile like a good sandwich, burger or pizza. Rusty Bucket has all of these along with some interesting daily blue plate specials. I like the Hot Brown which is the Sunday special but the others look interesting too. Seems like a decent place to take the family, but... read more

I went here with my two young children and another family. We went on a Saturday evening around 5PM, there were 6 of us, so we figured we would probably wait, but hopefully not too long since we got there pretty early. It was not too crowded yet, and we were told it would be a 35 minute wait, which... More

Went to lunch and had a great meal. Service was good and they had several lunch specials. Was not time for a cold one... If it was they had plenty of drafts on tap.

Had dinner with the kids and grandkids the other evening. Typical bar food menu presented in an okay way. Service was fine, but not great. To their credit though, they were responsive to the kids who were drinking lots of milk. The food was nothing special. I ordered a pizza. Thin crust without a lot of flavor on the build... More

Love to sit outside here or in. Food is dependable and waitstaff always friendly. Occasionally food can be slow but we go back almost weekly and it is not the standard.

Stopped in for dinner after watching a volleyball game (it is one of the closest places to go to). The place is a sports bar that is casual and provides average type of food. The service was very good considering we were in a hurry to get back to the volleyball match. Our group had a variety of choices from... More

After receiving two stellar recommendations from two different friends, my husband and I visited this past Saturday evening. We have been looking for somewhere new to try and after taking a look at the menu, mouths watering, we headed over. We arrived at 7:45pm and the place was packed. Good sign. UNFORTUNATELY as we encounter a lot anymore, the staff... More

My favorite is substituting roasted carrots for french fries. Such a healthy alternative! My best "go to" restaurant, casual and inviting.

Went with good friends on a Saturday evening. Place was about 70% full. Waitperson was cheerful but very disorganized. Forgot something about everyone's order. Forgot silverware & napkins. Disappeared for long periods' Food was ok. Drinks were way too expensive to make it a regular visit. Will give it a few months to work kinks out.
