There were a handful of items to choose from so I was a bit limited as compared to other restaurants in the area. I opted for the gf pasta and pesto chicken. I didn't have any reactions and the pesto was delicious.
So good! I had their gf double stacked quesadillas and they were so good! Highly suggest!
Ate here twice and got sick both times
good food. gf alcohol selection
The food was great and the servers were knowledgeable about how to handle the food to make sure cross contamination wasn’t an issue. I tried three different entrees and my Nima tests came up negative for gluten on all three food items. Definitely recommend!
I came here without any prior research (on a business lunch) and figured it would be the dry salad for me...I was pleasantly surprised that they had a decent GF menu. I had the fish tacos. They were good. Not great, not excellent...just good. But, it was nice to eat something other than a salad.
Stopped here on our way back home. I was excited for a place with such an extensive GF menu. I ordered the bucket of shrimp and the double stacked quesadilla. The shrimp was great and they even had woodchuck cider, however, our waitress was terrible. Our drinks and food all came at the same time. She explained that she had been very busy with a larger party and apologized. No biggie. I was about to eat a piece of quesadilla, when I noticed it looked A LOT like a flour tortilla and not corn. Luckily, I had my Nima Sensor with me and tested it. Sure enough it came back "gluten detected" . I had planned to just send it back and have it remade because, hey mistakes happen. However, our waitress did not come back to check on us for another 15-20 minutes! At this point I was irritated. I wanted to get cheesecake to go but when I calmly explained to her what happened and how it would have made me very sick, she rudely brushed it off and said "well we have this item on our normal menu and they must have grabbed the wrong one, so they could just remake it." I explained to her that we were traveling and didn't have time to wait since we had been there close to an hour for a party of 2 in a restaurant that wasn't a quarter full and would just like it removed from our bill. Left without cheese cake and opted for Menchie's fro yo a few doors down. No manager came to apologize. In summary, the employees that I experienced had no regard for my safety and did not care about my satisfaction. If you have celiac disease, eat here with caution.
Don't go here. They have a gluten free menu but cross contaminate. Twice have I been eating gluten free noodles and found a gluten noodle in with it. I only went back from it happening the first time because the manager said he took it very seriously and would talk to the chefs which obviously, not the case
I ordered an entree that had no mention in the description that it had cheese on it. I am highly allergic to all dairy and gluten. I didn't ask the run down of what was in it trusting the menu to say it had cheese. They remade my food without all the dairy, and we still paid full price for my meal. Needless to say we will not be returning to Rusty Bucket.
Despite some reviews, I thought the food was very good, large portions for the money and our waitress had good customer service skills. Had the pesto chicken gluten free which was a nice option from the usual. I will definitely return on another visit to Columbus.
My son and I ordered off the gluten free menu. He got fish tacos and I got sirloin steak. He said the fish in the taco was great but the other ingredients weren't so good. Overall he gave it a 5. When my steak arrived it had cheese on top (which wasn't mentioned on the menu) and fried onions on the side. I questioned the waitress about it. ..sure enough, the onions weren't gluten free. I sent it back. The manager came out and offered top get me something else while I waited for a new steak to be cooked. Everyone else in my party had their food. I asked for my other side dishes. ..steamed broccoli and a tomato cucumber salad with gorgonzola cheese. .They were great and my new steak appeared just as I finished eating the sides. The steak was only so so, but that's what you get for ordering a steak at a place that specializes in fish. My husband enjoyed his breaded fish and chips for father's day so it all worked out.
The food was great. I had the double stacked quesdilla and the pesto chicken. However, the staff was not exceptionally friendly. I asked them to turn the only tv I could see to the UEFA match and got a lot of flack from the manager (?) for it. He did eventually change it, but his argument was that somebody else might want to watch the US Open. At the time there was only one other table that could see that particular television. In fact, the place was mostly empty, but it did start filling up as we were leaving. The napkins literally fell apart with the first use. At this time, I'm not sure if I would return, even though the food was excellent.
