Good sports bar

Great place to go and watch a game with friends. Food is good. People love the wings here. I think they're just ok, but I've had them 1000x. I really think Buckets benefits from not having much competition from other sports bars in Racine. That being said they still have a bunch of TVs, decent food... read more

I really think Buckets benefits from not having much competition from other sports bars in Racine. That being said they still have a bunch of TVs, decent food and plenty of seating.

Buckets is the best of Classic Wisconsin. Always comfortable with a friendly local crowd-definitely hometown oriented regarding sports! Great food with exceptional daily specials. Fish specials on Friday are great. Order anything, it'll rock-guaranteed. THE BEST chicken wings!!! A great place to eat and enjoy a beer!

Nice sports bar & grill. Lots of tv's so you cant miss a game. They also have an enclosed smoking area with tv's too. The food was ok wings, burgers and apps. Get there early for games or you won't get a seat.

Bar boasts 28 TVs and has various seating options. No matter where you sit, you will have a view of numerous sports events. The bar has a separate indoor smoking room and an outside patio but the outside patio is not smoke free. After sitting at a table for five minutes we realized that we had to go to the... More

The wings are addicting. Great service, perfectly cooked wings. I never get anything else, just share 20 pc. wings with the fiance. Bar atmosphere, LOTS of TVs, great place to go to watch your favorite sports game! My fiance loved it as well!

One of my favorite places to hang with my wife and get a drink and a bite to eat. The wings are very good and the broasted and grilled wings are a nice change of pace. I recommend sitting at the bar, the bartenders are an interesting bunch...usually like a scene out of "Grumpy Old Men"!

I like to head over to Buckets to watch a Bucks game from time to time. The place is well lit, has a decent crowd, and the staff are friendly. The only thing Ive eaten from here was a burger & some deep fried mushrooms which were both fine. They have a variety of beers on tap which is essential... More
