Rusty Bucket coming to Rookwood

Bar food, served up in the form of the Rusty Bucket Corner Tavern, will be coming to Rookwood Pavilion in February. I believe it's going in in the place of Nothing but Noodles. Rusty Bucket is owned by Cameron Mitchell of Columbus, who operates two Mitchell's Fish Markets in the area.

Mitchell has a Rusty Bucket in Upper Arlington in Columbus. It's a fun place to hang out, watch sports, and enjoy some above-average bar food. It is comparable to Champps.

I echo the comments about above-average food. Cameron Mitchell's associated with this chain, and while the food isn't up to par with his other restaurants, it's good. I'd choose this place over any other chain-pub type place. My sister worked at the one in Dublin, Ohio, when it opened, and we go there often when we're home visiting our parents.

Yeah too bad it will fail just like all the others because there's nowhere to park in that tiny lot that all the starbuckians take up from 6am to 11pm. Its a shame.

Rusty Bucket is a great place to eat, and I would recommend it to anyone. What I would not recommend, however, is working there. The restaurant is always overstaffed, and one of the managers in particular never knew what was going on. I would ask him questions about the menu, pricing, or ringing in menu items, and he would never have time to answer me! I eventually had to quit due to gas prices (and never making enough tips due to the fact that we were in two-table sections). Best of luck to the restaurant, but I didn't like how I was treated there! I would suggest new management to Gary for better employee attitudes! :o)
