Average American style food; wait times often long despite not being crowded; food not always hot when brought to the table. Wait staff do not seem to enjoy their job. There are better options for similar food in the area.

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.
