Had excellent shellfish and other choices as well. Pleasant location, good service and low cost for great food. Easy to find with plenty of free parking.

Great decor, lotsa excellent food. LOVED their potato croquettes! A good place to bring kids too. Note:Parking lot across the street is a little dark...not sure it's the best area of town? Be sure to lock up.

We often dine at the Clam Bucket and most recently had dinner with friends on January 14, 2017. The food is consistently good - we have never had a bad meal. The Prawn Dinner is very good and have also enjoyed the Prawn Feta Salad on several occasions. Nice atmosphere and the chocolate peanut butter dessert is out of this... More

We decided at the last moment to go for fish and chips, we chose the Clam Bucket as we hadn't been there for a while, sure gals that we did, absolutely excellent.

After trying multiple chowders on the West Coast, this was hands down the best I've ever had. Ordered a small and it was huge. The shrimp were also amazing. Everything was fresh and the decor was very funky and bright. The staff was friendly and very fast.

If you enjoy really good food and service then you must visit the Clam Bucket. They have a good selection of food from burgers to what they really specialize in and that is seafood. And if the weather is nice you can enjoy your meal in the outside terrace and take in the water view.

Not sure what is happening with the cook but the level of good meals have drastically declined. Server was very good. Food tastes like is came out of a can. Very sad, as it had become a very nice place for lunch.

My hubbie and I stopped here on our way to Tofino. This restaurant was recommended by our Canadian friends. Read the Tripadvisor reviews before we went there. We both ordered the one piece fish and chips. It was delicious! the wait staff were friendly and the food came quickly. We came on a Tuesday and saw many locals having lunch... More

My wife and I were in port Alberni. And had a grumbling tummy. Asked around of where to go for dinner. Clam bucket recommended. Wife wife was hesitant about the name. She is a picky eater and loved it. I also enjoyed my meal. Good food good service and good prices. We are from comox and would make the trip... More
