Wait staff was very friendly, efficient and helpful. I ordered the Buffalo chicken sandwich. I asked if it could be made into a wrap. Yes, and it was delicious. Different flavors and textures all came together in one nice wrap. My dinner companion had the Asian fish, and was quite pleased. Price was very reasonable.

You can always count on good food and good service at the Bucket. We have yet to order something we didn't like. The fried or blackened fish is one of the favorite choices. This time we had the fish tacos and they too were delicious. Their weekly blue plate special and happy hour drinks are always a good bet as... More

By far my favorite menu item is the one and only steak they offer 😊. It's an 18oz porterhouse with garlic sautéed mushrooms on top! Price? $20 which includes a side and a beer. I also recommend the iceberg wedge ($5) as a starter and they have an excellent Italian sub which makes a great lunch item.
