Rusty Bucket Restaurant Summer Fun & Giveaway
Rusty Bucket Restaurant Summer Fun & Giveaway
One of my favorite places to dine is Rusty Bucket Restaurant & Tavern. Lucky for me, there are four locations in Michigan including two in Northville. There are also locations in Colorado, Florida, Indiana, North Carolina, and Ohio. Rusty Bucket is a casual restaurant that prides itself on serving made-from-scratch dishes and cocktails in a friendly relaxed setting.
Recently, I was invited to visit the Rusty Bucket in Northville (Traditions Dr) to sample some of their favorite dishes and beverages. This location has a covered patio that is perfect on a warm summer night. It would be a great area to have a private party!
Speaking of parties, Rusty Bucket offers 90 or 120 ounce beer towers. These towers are filled with your favorite draft beer and placed right at your table so you can fill up as needed. A beer lovers dream!
Rusty Bucket also features a wide variety of freshly made cocktails. During my visit, I was able to sample three of them – the Draft Margarita, Draft Bucket Punch, and Blueberry Bella. Of the three, the Bucket Punch was my favorite, with the Blueberry Bella placing second!
When it comes to appetizers, Rusty Bucket has something for everyone! Some of their signature items include deep-fried pickles and Bucket Bites which are mini burgers on potato buns with grilled onion, yellow cheddar cheese and topped with pickle chips. Of the starters we tried, my favorite was the Rusty Bucket Wings. We also tried the Hummus plate and Bucket O’ Shrimp.
When it comes to great food, you will find plenty of it at Rusty Bucket. They serve soups, salads, sandwiches, burgers, pizza, fish and chips, steak, pasta dishes, and more! I enjoyed every one of the 6-8 dishes I sampled during this visit. One of my favorite meals is the Buffalo Chicken sandwich – panko crusted chicken breast slathered in Joe’s regular sauce, topped with crumbled blue cheese, shredded lettuce, tomato and mayo. I’ve had this sandwich at least three times because it’s that good! If you love Buffalo chicken, this is a must try!
Of course, dessert is a must for some when eating out. Just in time for summer, Rusty Bucket added a Strawberry Shortcake dessert that is served in a tall cup. This was so delicious. I’d say it’s too much for one person, so grab a couple of spoons and share with a friend or family member. They also have Triple Chocolate Cake, Strawberry Cheesecake, and Sticky Bun Bread Pudding.
If your mouth is watering, you are in luck because there is probably a Rusty Bucket in your area. Be sure to visit their website to find the location nearest you. If you find one, be sure to enter below for your chance to win a $25 gift card to that location. Good luck!

Disclosure: I received free beverages and a meal in return for this post. All opinions are mine.
I like the chicken sandwich.
Everything! Probably the cocktails the most.
Shrimp and bucket punch for me. Not a beer fan either but those towers would be a hit for most. That strawberry shortcake looks yummy
I would try the wings.
I’d like to try a whole list of things off their menu that I read! Beef Stroganoff, Pan Seared Salmon with Soy, Cheese Beer Burger, Cinnamon French Toast and Braised Ribs Hash and much more!
I would love to try the shrimp in a bucket sounds awesome!!
I would try the cheesecake!!
Those wings and the cheesecake look great!
Looks yummy! I love fried pickles! Not sure if they were in the area when we lived in Westland. I haven’t been to one yet.
The macaroni and cheese sounds really good!
I never been but wow I am excited to see this food
I’ve been there a few times and you can’t go wrong with the fried pickles!
The wings OF COURSE!!!
I wanted to tell you that your review AND your question of asking us what we would want to try (which led to me looking at their menu to answer you haha) also led to my husband & me deciding we have been wanting to try Rusty Bucket long enough, so we went to the Northville one this past Saturday for dinner! (the Northville & Novi ones are both close to us).
I giggled because I ended up not getting what I thought I wanted to try first (but still want to try all of those haha).
We both ordered the CHICKEN PESTO PASTA and I also tried one of their BLUEBERRY BELLA cocktails that you tried. I was hesitant to try the blueberry bella because I like my drinks sweet and NOT strong and too often with any kind of vodka as a main ingredient they can be too strong tasting for me, but I absolutely LOVED it , it was SO blueberrish and refreshing on a hot, humid day!!! We both loved our dinners too!
Anyway, we will be going back again for SURE, whether we win or not and they have two new happy customers thanks to your review and also your clever giveaway question.
I love this, Yvonne. Thanks for letting me know that you tried Rusty Bucket! Glad you liked the Blueberry Bella and that you found a new place to eat!
Thank you! 😀
