Summer Flavor Returns to the Rusty Bucket – Strawberry Shortcake Recipe

Nothing says summer like cool, refreshing desserts, right?  The Rusty Bucket has added a Strawberry Shortcake to their menu for a limited time so guests can enjoy this quintessential summer treat.  We tried it out last weekend and we all agree they have mastered this dessert.  

The Rusty Bucket is a casual dining restaurant that features made from scratch items.  We all enjoyed our lunch, which you can read all about on the blog: Detroit Foodie Finds.

The Rusty Bucket offers a wide range of menu items, sure to please everyone in your family.  We love that they offer a great kids menu and a summer reading program where children can earn a free meal by reading books.
