“Average Fish and Chips.”
Reviewed May 19, 2010

Noisy atmosphere and garish decor. We ordered the one piece cod and chips. A nice change was that we could get half the chips and a small side salad. The house dressing was very nice. The fish batter was a bit stodgy. A nice touch was the Trivial Pursuit cards on the tables.

“The food is rather mediocre. The salads...”
Reviewed February 20, 2010

The food is rather mediocre. The salads are the best - fresh and tasty- but both the salmon and the chicken did not taste so fresh - maybe the oil

“The best meal in Port Alberni”
Reviewed September 17, 2009

During our honeymoon, my wife and I visited the Clam Bucket Restaurant on two nights, back-to-back.

On both nights we were treated to superb food at very good prices. The service is very friendly and knowledgeable, albeit a bit slow at times. The restaurant was completely full during both of our visits but the kitchen kept up and food was delivered promptly and at the correct temperature. The atmosphere in the restaurant is fun and the menu and item descriptions were entertaining to read!

The Weagle salad, salmon burger, and chipotle maple salmon entree's were quite delicious. The salmon was amongst the freshest I've ever tasted. On our second night, my wife had the Philly cheese steak sandwich. It was the best philly cheese steak that either of us have ever tasted.

When we return to Port Alberni, we'll be sure to visit the Clam Bucket!
