    We had our usual nice night at the Bucket. You can count on quality food and really friendly, solid service. A pitcher of margaritas for my table mates went over well.

    We thought the food was not up to Rusty Bucket Experian that we’ve had in the past. The Double Nickel salad skimpy on blue cheese and bacon, and no cherry tomatoes

    Christmas lunch and exchange with family. Waiter was not very friendly or patient. He did provide everything we needed but on his own schedule. He brought our checks before we were half done with our food and didn’t offer dessert. We had to wave him over to order dessert and drink refills. Food was very good and price was appropriate for the food we received.

    Three of the six people in my party ordered the soy-glazed salmon. Up until last night, this was my all-time favorite entree at the Bucket. None of us finished our meal because the fish was so salty… really unusual for this meal. It comes with rice and green beans. We all asked for the beans to be cooked well done. We do not like crispy beans. None of us ate the beans because they were almost raw. When the server collected our half-eaten meals, I asked him to tell the chef that the salmon was too salty and the beans not cooked. I don’t know whether or not the cook received our message, but maybe this negative review will make its way to the kitchen.

    We came in Friday night with a reservation. My mother-in-law and I both ordered a pin fin martini. They came out only half full. Our waitress was very distracted, at one point she actually was with another table for over 10 minutes having conversation. It was frustrating because she then forgot our check and several minutes realized when we all stood up to leave and asked for the check again. Love this place but it could use some fine tuning with the drinks and service.

    Excellent service! Our server was awesome! He was on the ball!! I’m sorry I don’t remember his name. The host that greeted us at the door was also great. The only down sides were the booths. Our feet hit if we sit across from one another and the restaurant was freezing!!

    The service was exceptional, Christina was very attentive and professional. The food was great, all timed perfectly! We ordered 4 appetizers and weren't rushed at all. It was a great evening overall. We couldn't asked for a better overall experience then we had being a group of 8. Definitely would recommend this location. Totally a favorite!!

    Went at happy hour and it was packed! I little confusion with the drink order but again, they were every busy. If you want more than 1 round during happy hour, get there early. BUT worth going because the prices were great and the food was outstanding.

    My wife and I really like this place. Great food. Wait staff is always prompt and friendly, management is very attentive. One of us usually orders the Double Nickle Salad and shares, she had a Slider as well and glass of Merlot. I had the Bucket, a juicy burger with a Stella, and ordered a side of fries to share. Definitely not good for quiet conversation. It's a bit loud but we keep coming back for the many remaining positive experiences.
