When we want clams or mussels by the bucket this place is so good!!! The broth is perfect. Service is good. Salads before hand and ordering some garlic bread to go with - just perfect. Full bar on site. Parking is on the lot; it sometimes can get busy here so make reservations especially for the week-ends. Service is friendly... More

I was visiting from out of town and friends had no idea where to go to dinner. We were looking for predictable and found By-Th'-Bucket online. It was good. Cheap wine by the glass kept my host happy, the salad was a salad, and the plate of pasta was appropriately huge given prices were Bay Area average--kind of high. Our... More

Great options for seafood and pasta. We've eaten here several times and never had a bad meal. Make sure you save room for the Mud Pie - definitely big enough to share!

We went down to By The Bucket right after work on a Friday, with a 545pm reservation. By The Bucket advertises with a buy one get one free coupon in the Thursday eye section of the San Jose Mercury News, good 3-6pm for 7 days. Getting here is no easy task on a Friday, as seemingly the whole Silicon Valley... More

Great food.. My family has been going there for years. Try to go early because there always seems to be a long wait to get in. We like it so much that we give people gift cards if they are having a special occasion or as a thank you. It is a loud spot so I say more of a... More

It'd been years since I'd been to BTB but it was able to accommodate a group of 9 on relatively short notice so off we went. Parking was a challenge - although the liquor store across the street is closed so we were able to park there. The wait for our table was about what we expected and soon we... More

Last time I went, I learned they no longer have ribs! Too much trouble. That tells me a lot. They are making me write more so I have to add this. I am sad the Bucket has changed.

Crab stuffed Salmon with artichokes is my absolute favorite. Sooooooooo delicious and cooked to perfection every time. My husband loves the Cioppino. Great food here, can't go wrong with anything on the menu.

Good place for a family meal. Good food, reasonable portions and reasonable prices. Not fancy, but good Italian seafood. We are regulars, and will continue to be.

We went down to By the Bucket Bar and Grill in Santa Clara 545pm across the street from Stevens Creek Auto row on a Sunday evening with NFL football playing. Little did we know that there would be a half hour wait, as there was one holiday party of 35, this holiday season before Christmas. At least they had a... More
