We Really like this place. Great atmosphere friendly staff and Great food . But Please someone teach their bartenders how to make a simple old fashioned . Worst one I have every had. Bartender said he just put some cherry juice in it.
We made our first visit back to the bar at the Rusty Bucket today since before the pandemic and we couldn’t be more disappointed. The vibe there was very different. The food was served to us cold. The service (friendliness factor) from the bartender was almost non-existent. They messed up our second drink order. (Which was a repeat of the first order... 😑). Nobody picked up and cleaned the tables or the vacated bar spots the entire time we were there. The two best bartenders (Mark & Channel) were nowhere to be found... ☹️ Not the same place where we made such great memories after we relocated to Florida. Good luck Rusty Bucket, I think you’re gonna need it. ☹️
Fantastic food and great service. Loved it. Definitely will return soon.
I call the Rusty Bucket. To talk to the GM he is out of town . The M.O.D. To buzy to talk about customs Service
Love the fish tacos. (Needs a wedge of lime.)
Have a fun weekend!
Had the best salmon here tonight ! 👍🏻
The BEST FOOD EVER!!!!
Worst dining experience i have in years. Birthday lunch for my girlfriend and 4 friends. Was not very busy 130 Sunday afternoon Dec 10th. Seated promptly. Waitress greeted us. Took half hour to get drinks. Another 20 minutes to order food. 40 minutes later food is served cold. Again was not busy. At least 2 tables around us received their food and drinks. Manager was only ok. Should haved comped drinks ad well as food. Spent 25 bucks on 4 beers and didn't eat. Avoid this place at all costs. 0 stars!!!
Just checked out this place for the 1st and last time one draft blue moon and one draft shock top $19.77 no thank you you can keep that... And those beers are NOT craft beers...
I just had the worst $20 lunch since I moved back to the area 3 years ago. Fish and Chips. The fries were soggy as was the fish (no flavor either). The bartender was nice and attentive but I did not complain as he was very busy. My fault there. I’ve been here several times, all great service and great food. I should have gone to Long John Silvers for $8.99. Just sayin.....
Great burgers and excellent service! I received cheese on my burger and they wanted to make me another. No big deal for me, I just took it off! The Manager came over and apologize to me. I thought it was no big deal and that I was fine but she brought me a complete additional meal and a takeout container for the next day! AND, I didn't have to pay for the burger meal at all! It's simply wonderful that Rusty Bucket went out of their way and made my day!
