“Good food, good value”
Reviewed 27 September 2013

The meals are exactly as described, and very good value. Not gourmet dining, but not at gourmet prices either. They have a fine selection of beer and a decent wine list.

“Very pleasant experience”
Reviewed 24 September 2013

Service was strange. Told hostess that there would be three people but she left 2 menus & 2 sets of silverware. Waiter did not arrive quickly but another waiter picked up on this & waited outside his area. Nice pickup.
Eating area is nicely arranged. Nice and airy. Booths are spacious & comfortable.
Had the sirloin chili & turkey burger. Both very good. Will eat here again soon.

“Limited experience”
Reviewed 7 September 2013

I've eaten here only a couple times (burger and a Reuben). My limited dining choices, however, were delicious. Service was fast, friendly, and professional. No experience with the bar, but it was well-populated on both occasions. They'll be seeing me again.

They have a lot of variety. Food is very tasty. Had never been to a Rusty Bucket before, it looked fun so we tried it. Would definitely eat here again.

“Nothing looked bad”
Reviewed 10 August 2013 via mobile

They didn't have much of a variety of apps but lots of beer!I had the Philly cheese steak sandwich. It was really good. My husband had the ribs & they weren't very good. They weren't tender. Besides this, everything was really good!
