Good beer selection

The Rusty Bucket is by the Dayton mall. It has upscale pub kind of food which was very good. I personally had the fish and chips, and there were quite delicious. They have a great beer selection and good atmosphere.

Standard fare. They used to serve the best version of a taco salad, but no longer have it on the menu. Too bad as it was the best!

Not bad fare for the mallside.. but hey.. The Beef Stroganoff.. asked if it really had morels.. clearly the menu says that button and morel mushrooms are tossed in a morel cream sauce - was excited to enjoy morels.. no morels.

Been to the Rusty Bucket multiple times and have always liked the food. Fried Pickles are awesome! I've had meals of Meat Loaf, Burgers and Pasta dishes and never been not satisfied. They have a good selection of Draft and Bottle Beers so you can enjoy for you meal. Service always good and friendly. Would recommend for Families or Couples.

Great location in the Dayton Mall, a bit noisy with trying to eat with a large group of people but excellent service from Nick. Food was great, hot and on time. Would recommend this place to anyone, pity we couldn't book ahead but there you go, more time at the bar drinking!

The food is pretty good though not consistent. The portions for most things are large. I liked the double nickel salad, we like their chicken finger sandwich and fish and chips, bucket of shrimp. The drinks are good .. they have pineapple infused vodka and lots of beer selection.

Started off with the Bucket O' Shrimp. One half pound in spicy Old Bay seasoning, served chilled with a fresh lemon wedge. Very good. Also had the Fish 'n Chips. Beer battered Atlantic Cod, french fries and coleslaw.

I got the fish tacos and there's no fish on it! It tasted terrible too. I complained and the waiter didn't even offer me another entrée or take it off the bill. $13 spent and I'm still hungry. NOT HAPPY!

We ended up here on Valentines Day (on the road--no time to figure out local restaurants enough to make a reservation). The name sounded a little sketchy, but the decor was a warm, cozy pub feel. We were told it would be an hour wait, but ended up being far less than that. We enjoyed the blackened salmon salad, grilled... More
