Rusty Bucket a neighborhood favorite

By: Christina Salvatore

If you love a variety of comfort foods, inexpensive meals, and a selection of over 30 different beers, then the Rusty Bucket located in Northville is the place for you.  Great menu and dinners for adults, kids, and a variety of gluten-free meals makes it a place that anyone will enjoy.

Winning awards such as Northville Chill-E Cook-off in 2009 and being ranked on the top 100 list for the best chili distinguish Rusty Bucket as a tavern that does not disappoint. With a wide variety of delicious food on their menu from fish to burgers it’s a place your whole family will not want to pass up.                            

My friend and I went one afternoon for lunch and were greeted immediately at the door from the wonderful staff.  With the opportunity to dine outside as well as inside, and the TV’s surrounding the dining area, I soon realized that we would become regulars.

  The restaurant had fast service which is a plus if you are on your lunch break.  This restaurant also has a wide variety of different beers then most taverns and with happy hour being every weekday from 4:00-7:00pm as well as daily drink specials it will make anyone want a night out.

There were so many options on the menu it was hard to decide on which lunch entrée I would be getting.  I came to the conclusion to order the Char Grilled Chicken Salad and it was magnificent.  It has the basic iceberg lettuce tossed in their double nickel dressing which tasted like a light vinaigrette, topped with marinated grilled chicken, apples, pecans, red onions, and crumbled blue cheese.  The size of the salad was just enough and the flavors all came together to make a delicious meal. 

My friend had the grilled chicken sandwich and loved it.  The bill with the both of us combined was only $22 and we realized with great food, service, and price it is a restaurant that cannot be beat.

I would recommend The Rusty Bucket to everyone I know.  It is hard to find a decent restaurant and dining experience these days and this restaurant sure did impress. 

The location, staff, and delicious food, are the reason why so many locals keep going back for more and from the looks of it, The Rusty Bucket will be a long and successful restaurant and business.
