I have enjoyed clam bucket for years. It's a great place to eat, with a nice atmosphere and tasty food. I used to get the chicken fajitas but they changed the build your own style to and already prepared fajita, which I don't mind because it's still delicious. I highly recommend the weagle salad (hope I spelled that right) service... More

Been here lots, never had a bad experience. Staff are friendly, food is good, and always leave full. By yourself or in a group, there'll be something on the menu for all.

We stopped here for lunch en route to Tofino and were pleasantly surprised. We sat in the nice enclosed patio and enjoyed a seafood lunch. The decor is very unique and interesting. It was a very enjoyable experience.

I wish I could comment on all the wonderful food items that this restaurant serves, but it seems I am hung up on the fish & chips! A generous portion of cod (my fave) in a delicious batter, 1/2 order of handcut fries, 1/2 green salad with their house dill dressing, coleslaw and all the tartar sauce you can handle....just...

We ordered a seafood tapas for 4 people. The food came quickly, although there were some guests in the restaurant. The setup of the food was tasteful, individual tapas dishes tasted great and there was enough for everyone.

My husband and I like to go to the Bucket to share a shrimp club wrap. The portions are large, and the food is well prepared and presented. Excellent service!
