Dive bar that is fun with decent food...

The first thing you have to remember is, this is a dive bar. The locals in the restaurant are very welcoming as is the bartender. Food was good, drinks were good, service was good. Consistent all the way across the board in the few times I have been there. We have not even spoken about the... read more

I loved this place. With the wind coming in from the west, water view restaurants on the river would have been awful,for lunch however as the only on-the-ocean eatery in Ormond Beach the Beach Bucket was just perfect. It offers a few outside levels plus indoor dining. Some outdoor tables have umbrellas. My Mai Tai was just right and my... More

Awesome place to eat breakfast on the beach, or have lunch on the ocean. The food is excellent, and the atmosphere couldn't be better!

We had to go there twice to make sure our experience wasn't imagined. Breakfast was to die for. The service was beyond anything you'd expect when you dine outside overlooking the ocean. The owner visited our table asking if we were here last week. We replied yes we were impressed on our first visit and decided to return. He thanked... More

Good cocktails, good service and a great place to sit on a sunny afternoon as it's right by the beach. Definitely a popular place as we visited a few times and it was always busy. Food is ok, it's the location that makes it a good place.

Great place for breakfast or lunch directly on the oceanfront in Ormond Beach. Hard to find. Look for Riptides on Atlantic Ave. (A1A). The Beach Bucket is hidden behind and next to Riptides. Park in the beach ramp area and walk thru the opening in the fence. Excellent oceanfront atmosphere with plenty of seating. Superb breakfast, lunch and dinner menu's.... More

We had Eggs Benedict and French Toast and omelettes. Food was awesome ! It is a place we would highly recommend. We went twice for breakfast when... More

The Beach Bucket was adjacent to the place we resided while in Ormond Beach. It was,not only convenient, but inviting and on the beach! We enjoyed the gas "fire pits" on cooler evenings and we couldn't ask more of the attentive and friendly staff. The beer was cold, the food was plentiful enough and pub-grub quality. They have live entertainment... More

Hidden gem behind Ocean East Resort facing the ocean. Small inside area but very large ocean deck. I was impressed by how the employees worked as an incredible team for great service. My scallops were yummy but did not care for French fries. My beer was nice and cold. Property super clean and organized.
