Description: 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!

The blackened salmon was WAY too salty to eat. Don't bother with the peel and eat shrimp...they are so heavily coded with old bay that you cannot taste either type of sauce they give you to dip them in. I was not impressed and will not be planning a return visit.

Their taco salad is the best. They took it off the menu but now it's back. Love their raspberry tea too. I must say, it's the best service in town. Always enjoy.

If I told you that a restaurant had the best food ever, would you be willing to eat there if I told it’s, literally, 60 degrees inside, and every ceiling fan is on?

Well suffice to say, Rusty Bucket doesn’t have the best food ever, so the LEAST they can do is set the thermostat to a reasonable temperature

How ridiculous. This was at 6:30pm on Sunday April 14th

If it’s not comfortable to even sit in your restaurant, I couldn’t care less how your food tastes. Room comfort and temperature is part of the experience

Eaten here many times with family. Food and choices are very good. Nice outdoor patio during summer. A little dark and worn inside the result of many dinners eaten here. A favorite spot for people from westerville and SE Delaware county. Saturday evenings you will wait for a table if arriving after 530pm. A sign of a good place as there are many other choices in this area.
