This was the worst restaurant ever. We walked in the door we're seated in the waiter went to for other tables that were seated after us before he even came and said hello. He then goes on to tell us that they have no french fries or onion rings to go with a burger. Then he tells us that they have no fresh crab or for that matter any crap at all even though it was on multiple items on the menu. I will never go back to this place again and I wouldn't be surprised if it inns of shutting its doors down in the next six months.
Always a good meal, always good service! By the Bucket is one our favorites. We love to bring friends here!
By-Th'-Bucket is in that comfortable niche that's above a fast-food or coffee shop atmosphere but not a chef-created over-the-top meal (and without that over-the-top pricing that hurts). It's getting harder to find these places, so I treasure the ones that exist.
It has a large menu, meat/fish/pasta/chicken, easy to find special diet items such as gluten free, and it's priced right. Large portions.Easy parking. It's one of those neighborhood places that might not be the first place that comes to mind, but it's easy to get consensus when it is suggested.
I had the salmon, my companion the chicken.We both thought the food was good - and if not the top-of-the-taste-buds, a meal that left us happy. The wine list was acceptable but not interesting or remarkable; the coffee was ok; the desserts didn't tempt us.
We were both dismayed and thought it not-in-keeping with the atmosphere that they've joined the "charge extra for bread" trend that seems to have taken hold. Especially with the chicken dish, that came with lots of sauce/gravy to sop up, bread should have been included.
All in all, I'm happy to suggest it to friends and co-workers, especially on those nights when you just can't decide in advance what you're in the mood for.
By-Th'-Bucket Bar & Grill is a go-to restaurant when you have a big appetite. My husband and I normally come home with leftovers. The appetizers are truly meant for 4 or more - not for 2. We decided to try a cup of the clam chowder this time but was disappointed; it was rather bland. Our entrees however didn't disappoint - Seafood Fettuccine Alfredo & Blackened Salmon with
Etouffee Rice. FYI, if you are expecting a romantic dinner for 2 this is not the spot; remember to come hungry!
Nice ambiance, good seafood
Always delicious and very generous servings. Our waiter, Gustavo, could not be more friendly and at the same time professional. Always enjoy dining here.
My husband, adult son and I enjoyed our experience until we received the bill and did not receive our $20 Open Table rewards.
More specifically... I took the time before leaving the house to login to my computer to redeem my first $20 reward (it can't be done on a mobile device) I applied my reward with the reservation, and when checking in with the hostess I specifically asked if she had my reward and was told "yes".
We proceeded to order two appetizers and Rombauer Chardonnay along with our entrees - two of them being at the high end. I bought the extra expensive wine since I had the reward. We ordered dessert and coffee. The bill was $248 after tax but before tip. When I asked why the reward wasn't shown as redeemed I was told that they didn't have record of the reward. The manager, Lupo, gave me an insecure apology with an excuse that the hostess didn't understand. I told him if he was really sorry he would have given us the discount as it was less than 10% of the bill - especially when our bill was high and there are coupons in the newspaper. I told him we wouldn't be back - what a foolish way to treat customers with an above average bill!! I felt bad for our wonderful waiter as I was clearly angry despite Gustavo's great service. Shame on Lupo for treating us so badly.
We were seating on time..
However no sw
The steak I had fell far short of the usual good food I have enjoyed in the past. I will return but no steaks,
Great dinner, start to finish! And, the server was on top of everything!
Large portions, reasonable drink prices, Very Good food. Slightly older crowd, but very comfortable. We are going back!
Too much food! It is easy to tire of the flavor, which is initially very good). Wasteful if you are traveling and can't take it home.
Great food and large portions to take home! They also have a nice bar area with TV screens to watch the games, have a drink and eat dinner there.
We enjoy the food and the service is good. Large menu. It too loud. Decent bar.
As sways the Bucket was great. Our waiter went out of his way to correct an entres which he had mistakenly written down.
