So I had some good and bad experiences with this place. I'll start off with the good. The food, of which we had the nachos and a variety of tacos, were great. The service started off shaky, where we had to keep flagging down servers...More

This is a chill place to relax and not spend too much on expensive menu items. Everything is fairly priced and of good quality. The drinks are great, especially since you can drink them bay side. They have umbrellas outside to keep you cool.

I had a lovely experience at the amazing Cantina bar. Our bartender was extraordinary in his trade. His name was Rob and he seemed to be both managing and bartending, which was impressive as that seems like a daunting task. All staff really seemed to...More

I have been to Buckets a couple of times this past summer. The chicken nachos are amazing and the rest of the food is alright. Watch where you are seated if you cannot tolerate direct sunlight!

Despite the delightful waterside location and despite our efficient server, I still have to give poor Buckets a terrible review. Ever since the disastrous meal I had in Dubai a few years back, I did not think the horribleness could be repeated but there it...More

Good place to sit and watch the kids at the water park next door. Food menu is super limited. Everything was a bit overpriced, especially all of the drinks. Highly recommend going at Happy Hour 2-5 and Taco Tuesday to get a "deal". Food was...More

The restaurant is ok except you have to watch where you are seated for dinner, If you are unlucky to be seated facing the western setting sun, you are constantly bombarded with bright sunshine in you face, no respite. They do not have any sunscreens...More

CHILL on the bay with margaritas and tacos HANG with friends for late night drinks and bar bites KICK BACK with a bucket of wings and your favorite brews. Buckets is a fun, off-the-wall taqueria style restaurant for Sunday Fun-Days, Margarita Mondays, No Shower Happy Hours, Taco Tuesdays, late-night cocktails and anything in-between. A tricked-out indoor seating area with graffiti wall art, deck dining over the bay, indoor/outdoor belly-up bars and punchy, Mexican inspired furnishings make Buckets the cool place to hang-out this season.
