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... read more

Our family stopped in for dinner and had a tasty meal. We got to test out the variety of their menu. We had a fish dinner, salad, pizza and children's pasta dish and everyone left happy. The restaurant is clean and well cared for. While this was a family meal, it was nice that they had several TV's on so... More

We stopped here based on the recommendation of a friend. The staff was super friendly and accommodating. The menu was very varied so I asked for a recommendation from the menu. The server was spot on too! Food came out quickly, was hot and was pretty good. Would stop at again.

Had a board meeting and decided on this location with their separate room. Worked out great as we were able to turn the music off, close the door and get to business. Great beer selection and the waitress was very respectful of our need for quite with a conference call, but accommodating to our needs for appetizers and drinks. We... More

It was my first visit to a Rusty's Bucket.....probably will be the last! The food was mediocre at best, and overpriced. Service was not attentive, our waitress did not stop by again until we were done, water glasses were left unfilled . Our party of eleven was seated in a private room off to the side, it was nice to... More

We went to the Rusty Bucket because the place we intended to go had a power outage. Our booth was comfortable, but the restaurant is very loud. Since conversation was the main purpose of the trip I was disappointed. I ordered fish tacos. They came piled high with a red cabbage slaw that tasted like it had no dressing. I... More

Great place for a casual meal. Welcoming atmosphere with something on the menu for everyone. Great selection of specialty beers. Give it a try, well worth your time and money. We eat there at least once a month.

We were about to get on I-75 and decided to eat lunch before heading north. We stopped in at my suggestion as I'd eaten at another Rusty Bucket-now closed- on Orchard Lake Road and enjoyed the experience. This time we walked in and were greeted almost immediately but the young woman didn't seat us for at least 10 minutes and... More
