“A nice stop for lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2014

Staff treated the kids well and the food was good. Large portions. Had the bucket (yummy), wrap (a bit runny with all of the sauce they added), kids burger and a corndog. Lots of screens to choose from if you're looking for a game. Would stop again if we passed through.

“Great Food....Great Service !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2014

Husband & I had drove from Anchorage to Soldotna with lots of stops along the way and when we reached Soldotna we were so HUNGRY! We came upon Buckets Sports Grill and saw there were lots of cars in the parking lot, so we stopped to have some dinner. What a great choice......very cute place, lots of choices of food ( Healthy Choices too )....drinks also. Service was excellent and our food choices ( Hambergers ) we oh sooo sooo good! I would come back to Buckets again !

“Good fare, a safe pick”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

This is a good pick when you need something as soon as you hit town and aren't familiar with choices. Not special but a good spot and a decent menu. Can be busy. Pleasant staff. Consistent food.

“Fun family restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2014

Stopped by on a Sunday afternoon for a bite. The inside was smaller than I expected but food was much better than expected of a sports grill. Loved the ability to listen to the tv of your choice. Our server was very attentive to our needs. We had loaded potato skins they were great. My husband had the bucket burger and was amazed at the size. I opted for the wings as a meal. They were good. They were grilled and not fried so a healthy option. Will definitely go back now he weather is warmer to check out the outside patio.

“A good place to watch a basketball game.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2014

The chicken strips are large and tender. They come in a bucket which they fill up . The staff will put any game on a TV for you and each table has a speaker which you a=can control the volume and the game.
