Location and contact

Rusty Bucket is a casual American restaurant and tavern, a gathering place where people come to share laughter, smiles, and great conversation over food that makes everyone happy. Satisfying and familiar, the menu is classic American fare, thoughtfully prepared from scratch by each location's Executive Chef. Cocktails are considered a craft, made-to-order by highly-skilled bartenders. From barrel to glass, no short cuts are taken with the carefully selected beer list. The perfect draft is guaranteed. Join us for lunch, grab a drink after work, bring the kids for dinner - we've got a seat for you!

We like the Rusty Bucket. Great venue, good service, decent food, cold brews. But the Taco Salad at this location can’t compare to the Taco Salads at their Easton location. The taco meat is practically non-existent as is the cheese. Toppings are half the size....More

It's nice to visit an American Fare restaurant that makes an effort and actually has a separate gluten-free menu if you ask for it. Overall they have good service, a nice atmosphere, and okay food.

The buffalo chicken sandwich at rusty bucket is like none other. The chicken is unbelievably tender and has panko breading so is as light as can be. Go just for that sandwich. It's amazing.

A clerk at Macy's recommended the Rusty Bucket for lunch. I ordered the salad wedge which should have included more toppings. A wedge is healthy with a twist of great tasting real bacon bits, tomatoes, onion, peppers, blue cheese dressing etc. but someone got stingy....More
