    Food was okay. Service was very good. Ambiance warm and inviting. Before 6pm easy to get seated right away. Was able to have a conversation without yelling across the table with enough activity and noise to make our conversation more private.

    We regularly eat at the Rusty Bucket. We were meeting friends and there were six of us. We made reservations through Open Table. We requested a favorite server on the reservation. When we arrived they were ready for us and let us know our requested server was not working but that our assigned server, Ava, would take good care of us. Ava was outstanding! Some of us had special requests like no bun, omit blue cheese, extra dressing, etc. All orders were correct and Ava checked back with to make sure we were having a great experience. Our food was great.

    The prices have gone up a lot since the last time we were there. For the amount of money I paid for my dinner, the portion should have been larger. Will not go out of my way to return just because of the prices.

    The food was excellent in every way, although it took over 30 minutes to get to our table, even though the restaurant was not crowded. The server disappeared from the dining room for extended periods of time.

    Staff was nice, restaurant was clean. Food was just ok. Really kind of greasy, and was not a fan of the coating they used to fry the food. ( we ate pickles, chicken tenders and even the chicken Parmesan was fried chicken. Pizza was good, but dripped when you ate it.

    My daughter and I split the nachos appetizer and a side of street corn. The cheese on the nachos was not real, as advertised—it was like the liquid stuff at a ball park or movie theater. The corn had very little flavor. My husband and son-in-law each ordered sandwiches. They both said theirs were pretty good. My husband and I ordered two alcoholic drinks—the first was VERY good, the second was fair. The floors felt like they either hadn’t been cleaned in a long time—my feet were literally sliding like there was a greasy layer on the floor. Not pleasant.

    The noise level was a little annoying. Not because of the music, servers or other employees. There were two adult female groups who evidently forgot that there were others in the restaurant! They were loud. Not sure what could have been done however, they were also paying customers.

    Our visit to RB was great! The service was very good. I loved the menu. The manager was outstanding! I contacted him regarding an Open Table issue that I was having with Open Table. He was very pleasant, understanding, helpful, and generous. He is a great manager. Congratulations to RB for the entire experience!

    We love the food at Rusty Bucket... but Friday's service was not good at first! We were seated at a high top and we then began to watch waitress go by us with out even speaking or making eye contact. We were patient because our daughters were in the same business and we know people get busy. We continued to wait until it had been close to 15 to 20 minutes and I got up and went to the hostess and asked to be moved to a table where we might get waited on. They allowed us to move and then we were treated great by our server. It was uncalled for that the waitress wouldn't even speak to us and ask for our drinks or at least say I am sorry I will be with you. She went on both sides of us several times and not once even look at us or made eye contact. My wife and I were very disappointed.
