It's for the sea food!

We go to By-Th'-Bucket when we want sea food. It has a traditional Italo-American menu and restaurant format with large screen TVs showing sports programs. The bar area is well decorated with sports themed objects. This is a popular restaurant, crowded at weekends with wait times up to an hour. It... read more

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.

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.

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.

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.
