Having never heard of this restaurant since we are from out of town, my husband and I jumped on the name. We love going to pubs and taverns. However, let me warn you that this is a mediocre family restaurant disguised as a tavern. If you are looking for a place to chill by the fire and have a nice... More

My husband & I stopped here or dinner. I had the bbq chicken salad & my husband had the buffalo chicken sandwich. Both meals were very good & the portion size was good too. I had one of their mixed drinks & it was mighty tasty. All of the staff was very nice & helpful. I also like how you... More

The staff are so friendly and helpful. Our meal was great. We had a special treat by having a deep fried pickle.

Definitely bar food and atmosphere as expected. I ordered the chicken quesadilla appetizer and didn't expect it to be double-stacked, meaning, hardly any chicken at all. The kitchen recooked and it actually came back out with less chicken. Disappointing for the price paid.

We had a group of 51 that ate at the Rusty Bucket in Easton while at a meeting/training session. They handled our large group very well - no complaints and the food was good.

We were in Columbus for a football weekend. We had lunch here twice, dinner once, and late night drinks once. The service was warm and friendly. The food was very good. The bucket of shrimp were outstanding. Pan-seared salmon was excellent.

Let's start with the good. The food was decent, nothing spectacular or overly creative, but no complaints. The location is great in an upscale shopping area and just a short drive from Ohio State's campus. Unfortunately any good done by the above was wiped out by the service, and then some. I will try to be as brief as possible... More
