Great chicken wings

Eat here as I was waiting for my phone to be repaired and I am glad I went here. The chicken wings were great and selection of beers on offer great. The bar staff are friendly and helpful.

Great service. Excellent American bar type food. Energetic atmosphere. My wife doesn't like the place as much as I do because the food isn't "healthy" enough. Oh well.

We've been here for lunch three times and love it. The windows roll wide open so that even if you aren't seated outdoors you can still enjoy the fresh breeze while staying cool with air conditioning. The food is wonderful and priced well. Servers are friendly and professional and bar service is a bit slow but not much different than... More

I had a nice meal at Rusty Bucket Corner Tavern. I had a taco salad, it was Taco salad Tuesday! I LOVED it. I wish more places would learn this recipe and serve it. I also had a strawberry daiquiri, it was ok. I wanted dessert but couldn't. I was too full. Our server was nice, our booth was comfy.

Buffalo Chicken sandwich was very tasty & spicy. I was dissappointed in the number of "local" draft craft beers. Local IPA not available, so I settled on a Pilsner.

We took my husband and his family out for a Saturday evening and it was great. We had a super server, he was always refilling our drinks and offered rest food choices. I ordered the California turkey burger and my husband had the mahi mahi tacos. Both were fantastic! The wait wasn't long, but if there was a wait there... More

I've been to this restaurant twice in the last month and had decent meals at each visit. However, I've also been unfortunate enough to have the same waiter twice. He is rude, slow, and not attentive. On my first visit I told him twice that I didn't want mayo in my sandwich. When it came out with mayo on it,... More

This restaurant was great in every way. Kid friendly and great service are always a must when you have an excellent experience. The meals were prepared exceptionally well and flavor was exceptionally good. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone over some higher priced restaurants any day. Try it for yourself and see...

I ordered 'The Backyard BBQ Ribs' and was sooo disappointed! The service was so terrible that the greeter offered to take my drink order. (Thanx!) When my order finally came, the ribs were so dry that I felt like I was chewing on a tree bark! Even the bone underneath the meat was "bone-dry"! (No pun intended). My server didn't... More
