I've had this gift card for the Rusty Bucket basically burning a hole in my pocket all summer - just waiting to be used. But when you live in Mt Healthy - going to Rookwood for dinner requires planning - which I'm just not good at apparently.
Polo Grille (um I didn't even know they'd closed!). The Polo Grille was a nice place but Rusty Bucket completely gutted and renovated the space. There are lots of TVs all around the restaurant as well as the bar.
Yeah - cuz this is his FAVORITE - especially on draft! It's kind of a crap shoot when you order it because it tastes different all the time - depending on the barrel - it can have a lot sweeter taste.
Larry decided to steak it up with the Tavern Steak ($18.29) which is an 18 oz Porterhouse, cast iron seared and served on top of fries. I have to say - we both gasped a bit when this came to the table - it's GINORMOUS!
It was a good steak - not as tender as a ribeye - but tasty nonetheless and definitely one that came home for a great next day lunch!
In addition to the Blue Plate Specials, they also have new apps (mussels and hummus!) and also a new burger - the Double Bacon Burger (how good does that sound?!). And while this is a chain - it started in Columbus, OH so it's almost local
As a welcome to the neighborhood, Rusty Bucket gave me a $25 gift card to giveaway for all of you! Just let me know what menu item you would like to try and enter away!
Why Should You Go? I like the Bucket - it's got a friendly atmosphere and they did pretty well for service on a full night. It took a while for the 2nd half of our service but all in all - not too bad. It's a family-friendly place as well and the portion size is very large.
