We love the Rusty Bucket. But in all honesty - it had been at least a year between visits. Then this afternoon, I learned they had call-ahead seating, and that sealed the deal. Our dinner was great - my husband loves the peel-and-eat shrimp and the salmon dinner, and I'm a fan of the fried pickles and the BBQ Chicken... More

Sat at the bar and enjoyed the French Dip. Good Beers and Good Food. Thumbs up. The staff was friendly and the atmosphere was great.

Avoid the Caesar Salad. Bitter tasting and it goes from $4.99 to $12 when you add chicken but they were out of my first choice Mahi Mahi tacos. On a positive note my husbands fries were good.

Went for Sunday lunch. The service was fast, the chili dogs, not so much, too much Horseradish mustard, not a hot dog, some other kind of sausage? The bread was the best part of the chili dog, buttery and fresh. Take out the dog and chili, put in some grilled cheese, and you'd have something

The Rusty Bucket is a favorite of ours. They have a large selection of draft and bottle beers and good food too. We stopped for a late lunch and started with a couple of 20 oz. Sam Adams Seasonal for $6.25 each. I tried the Friday Blue Plate Special, Tequila Lime Tilapia, for $14/49, and it was very good and... More

I was very surprised. I expected more of a sports bar, family atmosphere and it was much nicer than that. Had a great salad, salmon dinner and dessert and thoroughly enjoyed it.

My father came in town to help me with some work on my house. We were looking for a nice relaxing place with great food and craft beer. The Bucket is the perfect place with their huge outdoor patio. It is literally like home away from home. The staff is very personable and atmosphere is very appealing.

When we went there it was pretty noisy even though we were near the front towards the door. Food was good. I had a specialty salad and my hubby had the Rueben sandwich. I think my average rating stems from the atmosphere at the time. Service was ok. I'll have to give this another chance, hopefully when it isn't so... More

This is run of the mill chain restaurant. Nothing on the menu jumped out at me, well I take that back. The only thing that jumped out at me is the serious lack of vegiterian options. I’m not judging, just saying a couple more creative ways to serve some veggies would be welcome. I did like the great assortment of... More

The food here is okay, this is a better place to go if you want to watch a game on tv and have a few drinks.
