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

The very nice thing about being involved with a city dart league is the opportunity to compare ones "home" establishment to other similar venues. In this case the comparison is very favorable! On one hand Buckets is an exceptional sport bar, which features great tasting wings and hamburgers to a very good steak sandwich. In addition the full featured bar... More

These wings need improvement. When I eat them, oil runs down my fingers. The hot wing sauce is not absorbing into the wings. The wings are cooked well- crispy skin and juicy inside. I'm thinking that the wings might need to sit a few minutes out of the fryer before mixing them in the bowl of wing sauce, and then... More

Buckets is a sports bar, no doubt about it. They have tv's plastered all the way around the top of the whole bar and serve only bar food. Ever since I moved here I've heard nothing but excellent things about their food. I tried their Friday night fish fry last weekend and was mildly disappointed. I ordered the deep fried... More

Buckets Pub is owned by Chuck and Connie Brandt. It is by far the best bar food/sports bar in Racine. Multiple TV's - great soups and known for their wings. If you are looking for a casual meal give Bucket's a try. From burgers to grilled chicken sandwiches and daily special - Ruebens on Wednesday, you will not be disappointed.
