“Nice surprise.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2012

If you need a quick beer and some above average eats this is your place. Many beers I had the seasonal Sam Adams and the Philly cheese steak.

Great place to watch the game also.

“Nice atmosphere and good food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2012

Reliabile good food here. I love the Elvis Burger and BBQ Chicken Salad. TV's are located all around. Although it is a bar/tavern you take the kids. Small outdoor area that gets lots of sun and it can be tricky to find a table where everyone is in the shade of the umbrella. The outdoor seating has a view of the parking lot. We have always had pleasant service.

“Great little bar food place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2012

Stopped here for lunch; great bar food (above expectations!) and prices were reasonable. Had neat additions to normal wings, etc. with smothered hot dogs, chicken BLT, etc. Inside and outdoor seating offer nice options.

“Family friendly with Quality Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2012

My wife and I love this place. It is a chain, but we were surprised because it doesn't have that normal chain-type atmosphere. The Menu is excellent and affordable. Gary's 3 way chili is awesome and only 10 bucks. Great bar and drink menu. They also have great meatloaf and the Buffalo chicken sandwhich is the best I have ever had. The adult mac and cheese is delicous with baked bread crumbs for a different twist. The deserts were gourmet like and yummy!

“This one's definitely a keeper”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2012 via mobile

This is my third visit to The Rusty Bucket. I've had the salmon twice and today I tried the turkey burger. Delicious.

This restaurant really does things well. Even though it's set up as a sports bar (and is indeed a great place to catch a game), it's food far surpasses traditional sports bar food. You can tell they put a lot of thought into making each dish shine. I've been here with 3 different groups of people and no one has had a meal they didn't thoroughly enjoy.

If you are looking for a place to relax and catch up with friends (with or without sports) and have really tasty food at a good price, this is the neighborhood spot to be.
