“Sushi in a bar and grill??”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 October 2013

Well it wasn't really sushi but Rusty Bucket has a tuna wrap that tastes like sushi and it was just delicious. They recently added more beers to their list. We were there during the week for lunch so not a lot of activity but the service was great and would be a place we'd go to often if there was one in our area.

“Nice casual place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 September 2013

Nice place on the outskirts of the mall. We sat outside and the patio was very pleasant. Service was fast and friendly and the food was good. They have many draft beers including some that are hard to find. We were driving by on our way to our hotel and are glad we stopped. Would visit again if in the area. Their specialty is fish and chips but we did not try that.

“Good food, good value”
4 of 5 bubbles 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”
4 of 5 bubbles 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”
5 of 5 bubbles 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.
