We went to the Rusty Bucket based upon reviews here on TA. We were not disappointed! The parking is ample and we did not have to wait for a table at 6pm on a Friday night, although it was busy. Our waiter Nick was attentive, friendly, and knowledgeable about the menu and extensive beer list. We were visiting from out... More

The hotel desk clerk recommended this hotel and we were happy she did. The staff was friendly and the service was excellent. The food was very good and we loved the atmosphere. Also, it was in an ideal location. The Rusty Bucket is not in our area but we hope to see another one. If you never been to one,... More

This is part of mall, on other side of expressway and near hotels. Very clean and modern/trendy, have lots of good pub fare offerings. Hubby had tuna wrap and loved. Lots of drinks offered, specialty cocktails too - high seats/stools and low tables. Waiter very friendly and helpful and efficient. I recomment

Always had wonderful service. Delicious drinks, great salads, sandwiches and oh that mac and cheese. Great spot for a bite after shopping at the Dayton Mall.

This place is a sports bar. It is located in the Mall parking lot. It was busy when we arrived around 6:30. The service was good. The food was just average. The spinach dip was spicy but had little flavor. The sliders were also just average. There are a lot of other restaurants in the immediate are and I would... More

A group of ten of our friends dined at Rusty Bucket on a Friday evening and our server took care of all our culinary needs. I especially liked the variety of craft beers that were offered. My Mahi Mahi tacos were a little too spicy but good just the same.

Whenever we are out, family or friends, we try to support our local small businesses. They provide a great deal to communities so we try to give back. We all know that a national chain will pick up and leave if their corporate bottom line doesn't float their boat; leaving empty buildings and unemployment and no regard. Anyway, service was... More

This location was remodeled awhile ago & looks great. They have a patio w/fireplace for cool days. They told me they have a private dining/party room but it only holds about 8. Sounds like a good place for a private small group event. This location is always clean & staff is friendly.
