Great little hideaway on the water. Beautiful view, happy hour drinks and live entertainment. We came on a Sunday afternoon and there was a good crowd but not overwhelming. A laid-back little place.

I've been here a couple of times....locals here, they tend to meet here...but it must be all about the drinks as the food and service is just mediocre at best. It IS on the beach....but behind a 2 star hotel...just kinda run down. Nope won't return.

We stopped off here for lunch and what a great find!! All the staff were extremely friendly and served us very promptly. It's a great little place to stop off for lunch located right on the beachfront. The food was delicious .. The calamari and sweet potatoe fries were delicious. Would love to come back if we came to visit... More

Had a great breakfast at the Beach Bucket this morning. Great mimosas, French toast, eggs Benedict, home fries! Our weekend guests enjoyed the view of the beach! Great service! We'll definitely go back!

Stopped after a morning of shopping for lunch and wanted to find a place that we could be see the ocean...we found it! Ordered the crab cakes for starters (which came with the meal) but were good with the meal anyway! Ordered the shrimp & chips as well as the grilled scallops and coleslaw. Meal was good, drinks were cold... More

Stopped in for a quick drink and ended up staying longer than what I expected. Ordered some cheese stix, they were really good. Good service and drink specials for happy hour from 4pm-7pm. Nice stop on the beach, outside sitting area-umbrellas included.

We were able to sit outside close to the beach. Great view of ocean and the breeze was refreshing. The food was good and reasonably priced. The ordering and delivery of food was quick. Getting the bill was a little slow. There was a group of people hanging around drinking. It was tolerable but not a place for an intimate... More

This was a fun place just sitting on the edge of the beach. THe staff was fun and very personable. The manager/owner?? was terrific to us. We enjoyed eating dinner, having after dinner drinks, and watching people. A super place.
