I stopped into the Rusty Bucket today for a small lunch and a beer and was happy to find friendly service and a beer list that was a step up from an average restaurant.

I was quickly asked what I would like to drink and just as quickly carded. "Responsibility Matters..." I had a "Philly" cheesesteak and a Newcastle. The price for the food was on the steep side.

The atmosphere was okay. There was a bar in the center of the room with high tables all around. There were lots of TVs with sports and news on. It looked clean. The service was prompt, but then again, it was not a busy time of day. I imagine that it would be a great place to come and hang with friends.

They have very standard imports, but the "microbrews" are actually pretty good. The taps could definitely use some adjustments.

I spent a week in Columbus working and this was the spot my buddy and i hit up after work every night. Nice atmosphere , with an unfortunate touch of "chain restaurant feel" to it, but not too bad. We sat at the bar every night that we were in and got nice attentive service from the bartenders, always easy to look at as well. 8 or 10 taps were unfortunately filled with mostly macro stuff, bud coors fosters etc. I stuck with sierra nevada pale ale most of the week , in bottles. The pub food was tasty, they always put the yankees on one of the t.v.s for me, which i really appreciated. I enjoyed my stay at my adopted hangout for the week and id go back again.Nothing stands out just a nice place

A very nicely upscale pub in the Dublin Muirfield area. The look and feel of this mall spot is very good with a nicely relaxed but slightly formal feel

The beer selection is fairly good and has several notable beers in the mix. Unfortunately my sense is that the pricing here is a bit upscale as well without enough reason to bear the uptick in pricing. The service is just fine, but seems geared toward the several regulars in evidence. Plenty of mall parking is available and the food looked OK, but I didn't try it.

Located in Dublin, Rusty Bucket has the end of a shopping plaza off Avery Rd. Parking is not really a problem unless it is around the Memorial Tournament or some other Dublin community event.

The bar is located in the center of the restaurant seating area. The interior is fairly classy, with a lot of brick and wood. There is a lot of beer paraphernalia on the walls but not too much neon thankfully. There is a little bit of a sports theme as well.

The beer selection is pretty good. The menu (including the take-out menu) is divided by country, and has a list of US micros as well. Highlights include Chimay, Sam Smith, Old Peculiar, Great Lakes, and Three Floyds. The draught selection is not very impressive though.

The food is good as well. The selection consists mainly of wings, salads and sanwiches. They have an $8 macaroni 'n cheese plate that looks really good, and a meatloaf melt sandwich that is pretty tasty.

All in all, Dublin doesn't have too many bars of this nature so it is worth stopping by if you are in the area.
