It's a Sports Grill, expect lots of TV's all with sports. Good news the sound is transmitted to a little box on your table so you have some control. The dining area is small, cramped and loud...don't let that stop you from trying this place!...More

Stopped by after fishing all day and had a great Bison Burger and fries. Had to take half of it with me. Will visit next time in the area.

The cashier at the market recommended we stop in at Buckets for dinner. We were not disappointed! We had three generations (ages 12 to 72) and all 7 of us very much enjoyed our meals.

Wow the food here was great! We tried the reindeer sausage and omelets and eggs benedict. Everything was so great we almost came back again the next morning! Great coffee, friendly service, and hearty delicious food.

Buckets has had it's ups and down's, but recently their fare has been above board. Good burgers - albeit at an Alaskan price (expect $15) - good beer, and the staff is always friendly. It's in a fairly convenient location and easy to find if...More
