Today is National Martini Day- YAY!! So head out and celebrate with friends and family with a good old fashion martini! And while your out, stop by Rusty Bucket for their Friday Night Martini Specials! This way you can celebrate National Martini Day every week!
While martini’s are great, I love good food, but I really love great food! Rusty Bucket is definitely one of my favorite places to eat, because they have great food! If you are looking for a place with some great food, a kid friendly menu, yummy drinks and a great time with friends and family, this is the best!
The atmosphere here is amazing, staff is always friendly and if you don’t quite know what you are hungry for, just ask, they have the best suggestions!
Friday’s are Martini Night at Rusty Bucket and never having a martini, our server suggested the Pineapple Finlandia Cosmo- this is not your everyday martini! These pineapples soak for 3 weeks before they are added to your drink! Let’s just say they are very yummy! So for a light weight like me, be sure to have a designated driver. This is a sweet, smooth and a very delicious drink. This would be my recommendation if you are looking for a new drink!
If you are a Rusty Bucket regular then you will know all about the Bucket Punch – Their signature PineFin, Mount Gay silver rum, Cointreau, POM juice, orgeat syrup, blood orange bitters and fresh squeezed orange and lime juices. This will get your body a moving! Not too sweet but hits just the right spot!
After drinks we tried the Spinach Con Queso- a blend of spinach, white wine and cheeses, served with piping hot tortilla chips. Usually I am not a huge Spinach Dip fan, but this is a little different than any other spinach dip I have had. This dip is smooth and creamy and alot of cheese flavor not over taken by the spinach. Also served with diced tomatoes, mixed in with the cheesy goodness, they melt right in your mouth!
I ordered the Chicken Parmesan – seasoned panko crusted chicken breast topped with marinara sauce, provolone cheese and served with pasta alfredo and garlic cheese bread. When you order this, be sure to bring a big appetite! This meal is large enough for 2 or someone very hungry! The moist seasoned panko crusted chicken breast was smothered in this rich italian flavored marinara sauce then covered with cheese and creamy Alfredo sauce that was just amazing! Each bite of chicken just melts in your mouth and keeps you wanting more! I was able to enjoy about half of my plate before I was completely stuffed! But nothing says tomorrows lunch like today’s dinner leftovers! It was just as good the next day!
We also ordered the Mac & Cheese – Swiss and American cheeses with elbow macaroni; topped with cheddar panko bread crumbs and oven-baked until golden brown; served with garlic cheese bread. I have to admit, I am very picky with my Mac & Cheese, alot of places try to fancy it all up by adding additional toppings and most places fail miserably. But I have to say, this was one of the most flavorful bowls of Mac & Cheese I have ever had.
I love finding local places that not only I can go out with my family and enjoy but still have a night out with my girls all at the same place! There is a neighborhood tavern feel to Rusty Bucket while keeping you coming back for that favorite family, friendly restaurant you’ll want to visit every week!
