Great find in Ormond Beach!

We were driving up the A1A and was hoping to find a great little bar on the beach to stop at, and as luck would have it we found The Bucket Bar! Great view, lots of umbrellas and even a few fire pits. On this Saturday afternoon there was live music, a great acoustic guitarist singing songs from... read more

Loved our table overlooking the beach! The breeze was amazing. We ordered the seafood omelet and it was fabulous. Can't hardly find this place.. hidden behind Riptides. Breakfast was a bit expensive but well worth it.

We stayed in ormond beach for over a week and ate here for breakfast several times and lunch. We loved this restaurant mostly because the view is lovely and the balcony is just lovely to eat on. The food is pretty good. I loved the French toast in the morning and they had a steak and eggs special which my... More

we were there on New Year's Day and they really did their best to accommodate but they were right on the beach and totally slammed. Took forever to order our food, get our drinks, get our food and for a beach establishment with people in flops and bathing suits a $12 sandwich is a bit much. That being said, the... More

Unless you like waiting for over an hour to get your order and then it's cold and only half of it shows up, you might want to try somewhere else. Then check your tab carefully. You're likely to have someone else's. This place has so much potential but they can't seem to get the kitchen and the waitstaff to work... More

Had lunch at Beach Bucket for the 3rd time. We love the view but the food is just average. Its a limited mostly bar food menu. I tried the tuna wrap and while it looked great it was somewhat tasteless. The tuna was actually cooked perfect (seared rare) but it wasn't seasoned with anything and the only thing in the... More

This little resturant is behind a hotel, so it was a little difficult to find. Right on the beach with great views, it was a cloudy day and the waves were high, lots of surfers. The food was really good. Shrimp taco's delicious, grilled fish sandwich also was flavorful. Service was very good. Can't wait to go back to Ormond... More

We ate breakfast here on our last morning in Ormond Beach. The food was very good, well prepared and reasonably priced. We recommend it. The dining area is small inside, but there is outdoor seating as well with a great view of the Atlantic Ocean. The server was very good and courteous.

I think this is the only beachfront restaurant in Ormond beach. We went for breakfast and the food and service were very good. They also have a bar with live music that looked fun. Unfortunately, we didn't get a chance to experience that.

Great beach view, great service and live music. Overpriced menu without a big seafood selection. We come to the beach to eat seafood, not burgers or chicken.
