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 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.

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

Sports bar atmosphere. Really like the game burgers ( buffalo, elk or caribou). Salads and sides are decent.

we had breakfast here on our way to Homer. It was excellent food, the service was quick and friendly. It felt clean and was a comfortable, not too noisy atmosphere.

You fish the Kenai for 10 days and finally the old hamburger Grinch strikes. Buckets has great hamburgers and cold beer. Good service reasonable prices.
