My son loves this place, and though my experience has been spotty, I agreed to go and see if things had improved. They most surely have not. The most glaring change is that the portions are shrinking. My son eats the chicken tenders and in the past has had ample servings, but the last few times even he has complained... More

Great bar with many beer and appetizer choices and well place televisions. If you want to share cheers during March Madness or a hockey game, this is a fun place. We love the food too. All of the sandwiches are good with great fried pickles (a must order) and a surprisingly tasty tuna wrap.

Rusty Bucket has pretty good food! This place was jam packed on a Wednesday evening, but we still got our food in a timely manner and the wait staff was pretty friendly. One thing I thought was cool is that they add kale to their cesar salad ( I LOVE Kale). I had a really good drink that my friend... More

These folks at the Rusty Bucket have this restaurant thing figured out. Its first and foremost a restaurant but also a friendly neighborhood bar with copious TVs to watch your favorite sports. Beer is featured here but its the menu that keeps us coming back - my person fav is the tuna wrap - well seared rare tuna loaded with... More

Food is tasty but, even though there are lots of "comfort food" options, wouldn't be mistaken for homemade. Good menu and prices are as expected. Our group of four had three meatloafs and a tilapia "blue plate special". The meatloaf meal was tasty and the portion size was just right. The lime tilapia was very good with the salsa and... More

Service and food excellent, great value for money. Was a tad noisy for our liking but that could have been because there appeared to be a boy's night out going on! Would definitely go back though.

While in town for business, stopped in here two nights ago to have a beer and watch the basketball game. Excellent beer selection on tap, many craft brews to choose from. Carlen, bartender, was great! Always had my next beer ready, knowledgeable about her beers on tap! Def would visit here again!

My whole family loves the Rusty Bucket. We love the variety on the menu, the very nice, but casual atmosphere, the great food and the friendly and efficient service. That's why we go out of our way to go to the Rusty Bucket. On Sunday, they have the best Hot Browns outside of Kentucky. What's a Hot Brown? Try one... More
