“Worst dining experience in Alaska”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 23, 2012 via mobile

We tried to eat at Buckets after a long day of driving, just wanting a good meal. After an hour and a half after we had ordered, we got our food. It was all wrong. My husband didn't get to eat, his food was so off what he had ordered, and others just went with the problems they had, from the wrong type meat on their salad, to potato fries instead of sweet potato, etc. My husbands was so off he didn't eat. My salad dressing was all that was wrong and she brought me the type I had ordered. When we went to pay, they had CHARGED US FOR THE ADDITIONAL DRESSING. I don't know how they stay in business. There appeared to be no management there and they were out of control. We wanted to be sure to get this out there so that no other unsuspecting traveler will have the same problem. Terrible place to eat, and all the waitress could say was "sorry"- repeatedly.

Bucket's was a nice place. We stopped for a burger - pretty spendy for a burger, but they were good!

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 7, 2012

Great place to go with kids. The meau was bar fare but was a wonderful alternative to the gourmet food we had eaten all week. We had a happy grandson after our visit to Buckets!
