Buckets is a comfortable sports bar for lunch or dinner. Their food is not always consistently great, but usually good. Wait staff is are very pleasant.

This place is a good place to watch any sports game while having a burger and beer. Other things on menu are fish, salads, and different sandwiches.

My daughter and I went here for breakfast. It was soooo good it's hard to please my daughter but she loved it she ate most of my breakfast and hers. Our waitress was great. There was on on her phone showing things to other employees kinda unprofessional but our waitress was very nice and gave us everything we needed.

We stopped in for a light dinner. We had fish and chips, chowder and salad. Everything was good. Our waitress was very friendly and nice. Checked on us frequently. This would be a fun place to watch sports. They have inside and outside seating.

Reall good food... Worth the stop while on the Peninsula.... When coming down to fish or dig clams, a stop here will be well rewarded. If you are returning to anchorage it will be worth a stop again

My wife and I ate there on our trip to Soldotna and Homer this summer. The food was great, the service was excellent. Has the feel of a nice family sports bar. The prime bites were fantastic.

Thank Mike R
