Good meal, nice friendly service. We went around 6 pm, it was busy but not too busy to handle customers.

We've been by this facility several times and noticed that it seemed to attract lots of locals, so we gave it a shot and were very satisfied. Even though they were quite busy, the service was attentive and our food orders were delivered promptly. It was interesting to see buffalo, elk and caribou burgers and reindeer hot dogs on the...

We stopped here on our way to Homer from Anchorage. Friendly service and a nice menu for lunch. Burgers were great as they were grilled on what tasted like a real grill. We would stop here again.

Awesome way to end a day of salmon fishing! We sat outside and the atmosphere was perfect. Our waitress was very personable and helpful. The food was very good and the price was reasonable for Alaska.

Delicious Halilbut bites which were really light and not greasy. The sweet potatoe fries were some of the best I ever had. Crunchy on outside and creamy on inside. Not overcooked. Good beer too. Had lots of TVs that you could focus on with a speaker on your table.

This is a place where sports buffs gather to watch multiple games and where families are welcome. The food is always excellent! The servers are great! They serve Breakfast, lunch and Dinner. They do serve some alcohol. The only complaint is that it is a little expensive but overall worth it.

Buckets is a great place to eat, took the family and friends while dipnetting we were a large party with kids. The food was hot and the server was awesome. Plus this restaurant is part of the Alaska Airlines Dining program, so you can have good food while earning miles..

My wife and I stopped at Buckets on a recent fishing trip and found the place very good. We were seated by the window and ordered good cold beer on tap and a Philly Cheese Steaks which was very good on a hoagie roll, good and hot with plenty of peppers and onions. Wife ordered a halibut sandwich that was... More
