“Great Sports Bar !”
Reviewed July 11, 2011

Arrived in Soldotna during the Stanley Cup Finals and I'd already identified Buckets as the place to watch our Bruins. From the web site it seemed like a local hangout so we weren't sure if tourists were welcome, but we had a great time (not just because of the result of the game). This is a very basic sports bar, nothing fancy, but a terrific place to watch a game. There were many TVs tuned to various different events, and a little box on the table we could tune into the sound for whatever we were watching. They had a good selection of cold beer, we had potato skins and burgers, all of which were great. We would definitely go back to Buckets !

“Great Place for Burgers!”
Reviewed October 26, 2010

This is a local sports bar. It has great bugers, but only serves beer and wine...no liquor.
You can catch the sports scene here, but keep in mind the time difference makes it tough to catch a game.

“Overpriced and Poor Service”
Reviewed September 7, 2010

Just finished dinner at Buckets after being referred to their Sports Grill by our hotel. First of all the atmosphere was ok, they had lots of TV's for your viewing pleasure. On the bad side, the menu is overpriced, for example burgers start at $10.99, and their specialty items start at $15.00. Our waiter forgot to modify my order as instructed and he also forgot to bring us extra blue cheese dressing. Can't say that we were impressed by him at all. Would not go back, there are alot of other options in the Soldotna area.

“Bar with local charm and fair portions for the cost.”
Reviewed May 26, 2010

As stated above, fun atmosphere, and saw many kids outside playing horseshoes in the pits they have. Not bad food and lots of local brews. All in all I will definitely return my next time in the area. The service I received was my down side, but it very well could have been an off night for the waitress.

“mmm... really good food...”
Reviewed January 28, 2010

Great place to relax and take in a game... sports on every channel multi-screens, local beer on tap along with one "buckets cream ale" that you can't find elsewhere... the burgers are huge and amazing, your choice of moose, elk, or just plain ol' beef and the wings were to die for... it's a step up from your average bar and grill!!! I will stop in here every time i pass by.
