In addition to the overall menu updates, when parents dine out at any Rusty Bucket location, they will be able to see that the kid’s menu provides their children with healthy, good meal options, including grilled chicken fingers, grilled Atlantic cod, and kid’s veggie pizza, which meet the National Restaurant Association’s Kids LiveWell Program guidelines.

A new drink also on the “new” item list is Gary’s Blend No.12.  This will be the 12th exclusive blend that Callicoat and his team have worked with Woodford Reserve to create. Baked Apple Manhattan will be the featured cocktail for this blend, perfect for the winter months.
