This is a great place to eat. We actually ate there a few times during our short stay. It was a bit noisy with volume control speakers on every table.

The food was good and of an adequate serving size however upon delivering my entrée that waitress asked if I would like steak sauce and I indicated I would like bbq sauce. I was surprised when I went to pay the bill that $1 was added on for what is usually a complimentary condiment .

We sat outside and had a wonderful dining experience. The atmosphere was nice and relaxing. The food was fantastic! The halibut was fresh and not over spiced. The beer selection was extensive. The wait staff was attentive until they started getting busy. Three big tables of people arrived at the same time. We had to wait on our check, but... More

The food and service were good. It was "Alaska Expensive" but a good meal and a good place to catch a ball game while you eat.

After a long day of house hunting Buckets was recommended for dinner. Their menu is extensive. I selected the halibut appetizer and my husband ordered chicken wings. The halibut was listed as market price. Since we were 50 miles from the halibut fishing capital of the world I assumed (incorrectly) that it would be reasonable. When the food came it... More

On past trips to the area, we've visited more than once. This time we had just one meal here. Had to sit outside, where the bugs buzzed us a few times. But the food just didn't grab us like it has in the past. The freshness and flavor we're not quite as strong as before. Hope things will improve again... More

Great choice of burgers and local beers. Multiple TV's (12 plus) but each table has its own speaker, and TV selector, for your favorite game, really cool.

We had a late lunch at the Buckets Sports Grill which had at least 10 television sets showing sporting events. The fried halibut sandwich with lettuce, tomato, and tartar sauce was outstanding. The seafood chowder and side salad were rated as far above average.The restaurant was busy even at 2:oopm on a week day. The hamburgers looked huge and smelled... More
