We ordered four dishes, two beers, and a glass of wine. We sat drinking our water for over 13 minutes. At which time the waiter returned and told us the gnocchi was not available and one of the beers was not available. He brought one menu for the person who ordered the gnocchi, the person who ordered the amigos dish... More

This was our first time here and we loved it. Our friend has been here for years and is not as happy with the place now. The food was good

We were part of a large family group, eating at a long established restaurant that part of the family had frequented in the 80's and 90's. They have a lot of 49er memorabilia as bar décor including Super Bowl trophy replicas (I assume they're replicas since the only logical place for the originals is at HQ rather than a bar).... More

Great spot for traditional Italian food and seafood. Our party had absolutely fabulous Salmon that was perfectly cooked and well seasoned. Mashed potatoes were spot on and very creamy. I had a wonderful spicy Blackened Jambalaya served on a spicy bed of rice. They are used to handling a lot of volume so the servers seem to be geared towards... More

Local famous spot for fresh seafood and Italian food! Comfortable, cozy banquets, wonderful sports bar area, also great take-out. Love the lunch specials as well. Service can be sketchy when they are really busy, but the food is wonderful and classic. Home cooking kind of good.

This restaurant has gone down in quality and way up in price in the past several months; they no longer serve bread with and extra charge, the quantity of food has been reduced (size / portions), and of course, the price has increased to offset the higher wages and profit for the business. Soft drinks / coffee at $3.50 is... More

Went there for my Husband's birthday dinner. We had not been here in years after moving away 16 years ago. So we thought it would be fun to go back to our old stopping grounds. Wish we gone some place else. All e had steaks just because there fish choices were not all appealing. Only good thing we had was... More

We used to enjoy By The Bucket Bar and Grill. However now they've made changes to cut corners and enjoyment. Food selection is not great and charging for bread is a very "cheap shot". We will never go back......
