Well, the place has a nice decor. Looking for your sever? Don't hold your breath. Disappeared after she gave us our menus. Waited forever for service. All finished and like to have your plates removed? That must cost extra. "Are we having desert?" I don't know what the server's having, but after waiting 15 minutes we decided no, not this... More

This restaurant's food was such a surprise. I did not have high expectations, but I was pleasantly surprised. I had the meatloaf with mashed potatoes, green beans, and instead of carrots I had mac & cheese. My friend had the double stacked Quesadilla as an entrée. However, the best thing of the of the evening was the Sticky Bun Bread... More

My wife and I stopped for lunch with her brother and his family on a recent weekday. The weather was nice so we sat out on the patio. Beer selection is good with local micro beers on tap and the hard-to-find Erdinger in a bottle. Fish and chips featured two large cod fillets with a small mound of fries, well-seasoned... More

Ten of us met for lunch on St. Patrick's Day. The service was good, and the bills were all separate, timely and correct. The food was what you would expect, good burgers and sandwiches served hot and with good fires. I would recommend the peel and eat shrimp.

We like to go there for fish and chips and the occasional daily special. Unfortunately, the last time we had beef stroganoff there, the meat was not very good (very fatty). The raspberry lemonade is great!

Average chain restaurant. Food was good and drinks were ok. Nothing special but wasn't terrible. Very small restaurant as well.

Eat here as I was waiting for my phone to be repaired and I am glad I went here. The chicken wings were great and selection of beers on offer great. The bar staff are friendly and helpful.

Great service. Excellent American bar type food. Energetic atmosphere. My wife doesn't like the place as much as I do because the food isn't "healthy" enough. Oh well.

We've been here for lunch three times and love it. The windows roll wide open so that even if you aren't seated outdoors you can still enjoy the fresh breeze while staying cool with air conditioning. The food is wonderful and priced well. Servers are friendly and professional and bar service is a bit slow but not much different than... More

I had a nice meal at Rusty Bucket Corner Tavern. I had a taco salad, it was Taco salad Tuesday! I LOVED it. I wish more places would learn this recipe and serve it. I also had a strawberry daiquiri, it was ok. I wanted dessert but couldn't. I was too full. Our server was nice, our booth was comfy.
