Food is excellent here. Make sure to check out the blue plate daily specials. I love the Sunday special - a "Bucket Brown" - the house version of a hot brown. Lots of families and many TV screens. Good place to relax with family.

My wife and I visit the Rusty Bucket when we are hungry for Fish. The Fish and Chips is excellent. Thick pieces of flaky white fish, Cod I believe, fries and very good tartar sauce. The service is always very good.

In a quick dash from a nearby office, several of us had lunch at this location. One of the party had eaten at another location and highly recommended the place. Good suggestion, as the grilled salmon was served as requested - very rare, and the chef delivered. A manageable selection of craft beers was a nice surprise. I had dinner... More

Very Good everyone very friendly and helpful. I do not drink so they do have a bar but not necessary to purchase anything. The food is good and a good location. The service is quick if you are in a hurry. This is one of my favorite places to go for a business lunch with several people.

This place is really inconsistent. I have been there and really enjoyed everything and also gone and had subpar service and food.

It is a pleasant atmosphere. The staff is friendly. A good amount of choices with some speciality items. Wait time is reasonable. Prices are midrange like around $15 per meal. Food is good.

The first impression was shaky, because the hostess really didn't want to be bothered to seat us or tell us anything as she slapped the menus on the table and walked off to play on her phone. Our server was very good at first, gave us time to check out the menu, got a sample of the BBQ gravy for... More

Good pub food, my group had the fish and chips, quesadillas, and double bacon cheeseburger, Marguerite pizza, all were good. Also appreciated our server, Tessa. We had a Deaf friend in out group. Tessa is fluent in American Sign Language, which was very cool and nice for us.
