GREAT BEACH BAR/RESTAURANT

Loved the outdoor dining and view of ocean. Went for lunch on a bright sunny breezy warm day. It doesn't get any better than that.

This sounded so great in their advertisement but when we were there, the food was not good, the entire place felt dirty and we waited and waited for our food to be served. The best thing about it is it is right on the ocean.

Spent a few hours there last night. Band was great, view was amazing...BUT...don't bother with the happy hour margaritas. I had four, yes four and absolutely no buzz. I think they are just sweet and sour mix and no tequila. We tried the mozzarella sticks and almost broke a tooth. The batter is super salty and hard as a rock.... More

What a wonderful lunch we had with our friends at the Beach Bucket! The service was excellent. The chicken panini was fabulous. And sitting on the patio overlooking the ocean was such a treat. This is a definitely a place to go while in Daytona Beach.

Excellent food with very good service in a beautiful spot on the ocean. Indoor seating is very limited so think of this as an outdoor place. They had lots of patio umbrellas.

The Beach Bucket is hidden behind the Oceans East timeshare and Riptides Restaurant. It was our favorite place to bring visitors for many years and then it went downhill. I am happy to report that after hearing good things about it we went back today and we're very pleased. The new beachy decor is inviting. They even redid the restrooms!... More

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 view. This bar is... 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!
