We have eaten at the Rusty Bucket several times. Our meals have been chicken, sandwiches, specials of the day, burgers and salads. When they have a large group, the tables of 2 - 4 always have wait way too long (+40 minutes) for even an appetizer. Also, recently, the food has not been as consistent as it has been in... More

Our meals included a pizza, buffalo chicken sandwich, and a turkey burger. We were all satisfied. The turkey burger was delicious--handmade breast meat burger with plenty of cheese on the burger. Would definitely come back!

My family and go here very often, we always leave satisfied. The food is very good. Our favorite appetizer is the spinach con queso, and my personal favorite meal is the adult Mac & cheese. The service is usually very fast. They also have outdoor seating, great in the summer! Definitely recommend.

Five of us went for lunch, we were seated at 12:20 PM, the place was not full at all, maybe 5 tables other than ours, we gave our drink order and by the time the waiter returned with drinks we placed our order for sandwiches. The chocolate milk that my son ordered was a dirty white, asked for more chocolate,... More

Huge choice of great choices for people with gluten allergies. I have had the pasta, salads, salmon and all were delicious and gluten free!

The Rusty Bucket is clean and inviting and the wait staff was very attentive but the food was only average. The Steak Philly was soggy and overloaded with peppers. The chicken nuggets we average and the BBQ chicken Salad was tasteless possibly too much water left on the salad. Our experience varies with this restaurant. It is hit or miss.

The Rusty Bucket in Solon is a good bet for bar food, with a good selection of drinks. Great service, too. The burgers were very good - I tried the Double Bacon Cheeseburger, which had ground bacon inside, with even MORE bacon on top, with cheese, onions, and mayo. I couldn't finish it. We also tried the pizza, which was... More

Stopped there with kids and friends. We were the only people in the restaurant. I ordered a chicken sandwich and fries. Half of the bun was stale. HARD STALE!! Sever was not in sight and we finally had to go find her. Sad. By then everyone else was almost finished.

I see that past reviews dating a couple to a few years ago complained about the service. For our experience it was perfect. There were plenty of tvs with a different sport on each. A nice sized bar if you choose not to sit in a booth or at a table. I had the Asian Tuna Wrap with sweet potato... More

Awesome restaurant! I have never been disappointed by anything I've ordered! My family and I have been coming here for years, and now I've got my boyfriend hooked. Great environment with spins on traditional 'bar food'. Would be nice to have happy hour food menu, however.

Thank Hannah B
