Stop in after your day at the beach for a refreshing beverage, great happy hour prices, ocean breeze and enjoy the view. This is a convenient location when you have been at the beach or want to stop in for some awesome steamed shrimp! This is the perfect appetizer before dinner.

After nine years of coming in, we were sad to see the menu had been reduced in the offerings and food lacked seasoning. We had an issue with an employee and the manager/owner(?) took care of it and appreciated our feedback. Megan was so fantastic!! She always had a smile on her face and greeted us each time we came...

My boyfriend & I came to Daytona Beach/Ormond Beach for a few days. We wanted to eat at a place close to the water. We found this place behind Riptides. Good food (but could use more food options), good drinks, very "chill" place while you're enjoying the view! We really enjoyed it!

We come here every time we're in the area and it's always wonderful! Food, fun, and scenery is great. The view is breathtaking.

I think the Beach Bucket is Ormond Beaches only full service restaurant/bar on the beach and that is a shame. I've been several times and each time there is always something wrong with the food/order/service. Generally speaking, the service isn't friendly, either because they are too busy, or maybe it's not a happy place to work. If you are in... More

We should have just left after we got there because our server was unfriendly from the start and ended up resulting in the worst service I have ever experienced. The burger was okay, but we never got a chance to reorder our cold and partially uncooked fries because she didn't come back for the entire meal. Had to ask 3... More

As soon as our waiter got to us she immediately looked us up and down with a strange look like we weren't worth serving. She rarely stopped by our table and when she did, she just dropped off our food or drinks and turned her back and left. It took three times to get more water. The burger was good... More

You can't beat the view at this beach bar, and the happy hour drink specials are great. However, unless you're in the mood for typical (greasy) bar fare, skip the food. My fries tasted pretty much the same as hubby's shrimp which was super-greasy and overcooked. After speaking with a few other locals, it's apparently common knowledge that this place... More

The location is the big draw of this place. RIGHT ON THE BEACH. It is in the back of a hotel and you can sit on the large patio beachside. The patio is terraced so everyone gets a good view. The food is good, standard sandwiches and bar food. Service was good. Seating was "sit anywhere" which tends to make... More
