    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.

    Very happy with our experience there. It’s the best one in Cincinnati. Our Server was good but he should have started the order with the moms at the table( since it was Mother's Day) but it was very good!

    Mothers Day/Birthday meal We had a total of 5 in our party and every single meal ordered was delicious. The brussel sprouts, chicken fingers, mushroom pizza, chicken Parmesan, tacos and fried pickles were all EXCELLENT. This was our first time visiting the Rusty Bucket and we will be back. 😋

    This is our second visit in recent months where our food did not arrive hot. After waiting 25 minutes to get it, we just ate it. The server was friendly but never appeared after we got our food, until she asked if we wanted dessert. Also the prices are not a good value for what you get.

    Server was excellent very attentive but not hovering. Food was good. Husband’s Reuben was great but, my burger was piled so full of sauce that everything slid all over and I had to eat it with a knife and fork instead of picking it up and taking a bite. That was the only downside of a very nice meal otherwise.

    We enjoy Rusty Bucket, but just need to request they get more barware. They serve Martini's in "champagne glasses and not true Martini glasses. They also collect barware from the table because they are running short. This makes to sense. Their cocktail recipes need tweaked. The cosmopolitans are not made well at all.

    It was my first time going to Rusty Bucket, my daughter in law wanted to go there to celebrate her and my son’s birthdays. The food was wonderful and our server was OUTSTANDING! The only complaint I would have is that the tvs were so loud that we had to shout to talk.

    Our server was wonderful…I had ordered a sandwich without peppers ( allergy), it came out with peppers, which she noticed before I did! Took it back to kitchen for a remake. Only negative with that was my husband ate his dinner first, while I watched, and then he watched while I ate.

    Great service and food and we really appreciate the ability to make reservations. People coming in when we did were told 60 minutes wait and we were directed straight to our table. Some of the staff are recognizing us we come since we've been coming so much these days. Would recommend Rusty Bucket to everyone.
