“Excellent Choice!”
Reviewed 11 July 2014

The Conch and Bucket is located in Hampton's Historic District....all three blocks of it. This restaurant is an excellent choice. The food is well prepared. Excellent choices on the menu. And a lot of interesting and diverse beer on the menu. The wine list is very good too...not too pricey and each wine well described. The staff are attentive and friendly.

Unfortunately, we were the only people in this restaurant on a Thursday night at 8:00 pm. Come-on people....escape from the Hotel across the street and experience some local flavour. You will not be disappointed with the Conch and Bucket.

“Great service”
Reviewed 8 July 2014

Went there for my husbands birthday and ate outside. Amy was our waitress and was helpful and attentive. We didn't have to ask for anything before she was there with it. The atmosphere outside was nice, but needed attention. It seemed cluttered with things that just didn't belong there and some tables needed to be replaced. The food was just okay for the price. I would probably go back and give it another try before taking it off my list of go to restaurants. We had the calamari appetizer which was a little tough, mussels for one entree which was a little too salty, and tuna for another entree which was good.

“Too spicy and not a great value”
Reviewed 22 June 2014

We went to this restaurant because of reviews on TripAdvisor. More than half of the menu was spicy food with various peppers and cajun style and/or southwest items. Nice atmosphere, but not worth the dollars spent. Service was fine.

“Cinch and Bucket was a pleasant surprise on our recent trip to Hampton; the food atmosphere and service was fantastic!!!”
Reviewed 5 June 2014

We went to Conch and Bucket on a whim and we couldn't be happier with our decision. The atmosphere was perfect; exposed brick walls, country music in the background and overall laid back in a good way! Everything was delicious! We had a few apps and each of our party of 3 had an entree. The smoked trout dip was one of the best things any of us had ever eaten. The service was great! Our waitress, Amie, was pleasant and very accommodating! There is not a bad thing to say about this place!

“Great seafood”
Reviewed 29 May 2014

Fantastic seafood, great setting, great location. We thoroughly enjoyed it, and wanted more! Try the fried fish sub, or the roasted trout. Great calamari!
