A friend of mine and I went to lunch here and had a nice meal. My Salmon Salad was very tasty, and I loved the way they blackened the salmon!

The staff was attentive to our needs, polite and friendly, but we did have some trouble getting the attention of our waitress when we both needed to get back to work. At that point (about 2 PM) there were few people in the restaurant, so this was a tad annoying. Otherwise things were fine, and I would be happy to come back again.

This was the first time we ate at this restaurant. The food prices was very affordable and very good. Service was prompt and very friendly. We really enjoyed our meal and look forward to returning in the future.

Chicken parmesan and fish and chips are great. Have had other meals but these two are my favorite! Prices are decent. Portions are filling. Staff is friendly. Never had a long wait even when we did have to wait.

Recently our couples party of eight finished playing golf and set out to find a place to eat. Getting a table for eight without reservations is never an easy task. The Rusty Bucket welcomed us, offered us drinks, while they worked it out and we were seated in minutes. Our orders started with appetizers; Bucket Bites-mini-hamburgers with cheese and pickles as well as the Double Stacked Quesadilla which could serve as a meal in any restaurant.
The Fresh Salads lived up to their billing and the Sirloin Chilli was very flavorful.
Our server Michael did an excellent job. He was prompt and attentive and yes, saw no problem with separate checks for the couples.
All in all, we enjoyed the evening and were thankful the Rusty Bucket embraced our little group. We will all be back!
