Very good and very generous portions!

This place is great! There can be bit of a wait, but it is worth while. They have a very nice selection of items and everything I have ever had has been fantastic. The service is great and we have no complaints at all.

We have never had a bad meal here. We go there for all special occasions, and always have a pleasant experience. The staff is friendly, courteous, and knowledgeable about the items on their menu. This is also an excellent place to bring the family. Plus for us it is close to home.

My dad used to love eating here. My husband and I decided to give it a try. We did not have a reservation but it was a weeknight and didn't think anything of it. Sadly, we discovered they tend to pay more attention to their older crowd. We, along with another couple who were waiting before us, waited for a... More

We have been customers of the Bucket for over forty years - from when it was the tiny building with picnic benches to the lovely restaurant that is there now. The food was delicious, service was impeccable, and menu was current. The Bucket changes the menu to highlight seasonal ingredients along with their classics.

Very popular place but definitely worth it! I would recommend making reservations to save some time waiting but they are very efficient. The wait staff was delightful and the food was fabulous. They are very accommodating to large groups as well. I would definitely eat here again.

What a wonderful place to bring a large group. We had an excellent meal, a warm welcome and great service. Visiting my son and daughter in law, who's parents were in the States for a visit from Chile. Meals were more than enough and had to take left overs. Tasty and cooked to perfection. Salads were very fresh and the... More
