Good Brews, Good Service, Okay Food

Went there based on a recommendation from friends. It was really busy on a weekday night, a good sign. Menu is eclectic and lots of choices to please just about anyone. Really wide selection of craft beers and ales. So many beers, so little time. We had the porterhouse special steaks. Priced... read more

On the recommendation of the front desk clerk, Zack, at the SpringHill Suites we went to the Rusty Bucket for a snack and dessert. The beer menu as well as their regular menu is extensive We chose chili and french onion soup for snacks. Both were hot and very tasty. The best however was the warm chocolate cake with ice... More

I appreciated this place's option of offering corn tortillas for their quesadilla. I don't know why it's so hard for other places to offer stuff like that. I'm allergic to wheat -- but not crazy allergic that they need to scrub the grill. I haven't had a quesadilla in a restaurant for years. It was pretty tasty. Their guac comes... More

We stopped for a quick bite to eat on a Wednesday night. Pot stickers were awesome and My wife had the Tuna wrap. It was bourbon night, had a Woodford Reserve for $6 not too bad!

We stopped for a late lunch / snack and ordered from starters menu. We ordered the Shrimp Bucket ($10.59), Potstickers ($8.79) and a side Tomato Cucumber Salad ($3.19.) The Shrimp came covered with the spicy Old Bay seasoning. Once one started the peel and eat shrimp your hands are covered with the seasoning and it hard to get anything else... More

Go here frequently for lunch and enjoy the options. Favorite is their Buffalo Chicken sandwich. A little on the pricey side but worth it.

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!

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.
