We frequent this establishment for the food, service, and friendly staff. If you go, get the wings! Thanks

Buckets is sports bar that serves a wide variety of food. My favorite is the wings. Served in a variety of flavors and sauces it hard to find better ones anywhere. The decor is simple with many televisions for watching sporting events. I highly recommend Buckets over a couple of the big franchise wing joints.

Great gathering place. The food is great! They have a wonderful fish fry. Lots of great appetizers for sharing with a group of friends over a couple of drinks. They have an outer area for bigger groups or just to be outside. Great place to watch the sports games and have a great meal.

What can I say....the beer, the food, the service is great. A favorite local hangout. Great place for family reunions and wedding receptions. And, if don't try their wings you're missing a real taste treat. A "must stop" when in Racine.

I kept hearing everyone say their wings are the best, but I think they are over rated. They were kinda small and pretty greasy. The thing that was the worst was how long it took us to get our food though!! I took 50 minutes to get 2 orders of wings and fries!!! That is too long of a wait... More

Another great place in Racine to visit with friends. They have a lot of TVs where just about every sports game is shown at any given time, but strangely enough, it doesn't have a sports bar vibe to me. Good beer selection and a separate area for smokers are pluses. Didn't try the food, but I saw some come out... More

The was rude. We will never be back. The owner thought it was pretty funny that they closed the kitchen early and then cracked jokes about patrons not being able to get food. Who pays your bills? Owner is rude, the food and beer is fine.

Great place to go and watch a game with friends. Food is good. People love the wings here. I think they're just ok, but I've had them 1000x. I really think Buckets benefits from not having much competition from other sports bars in Racine. That being said they still have a bunch of TVs, decent food and plenty of seating.

Buckets is the best of Classic Wisconsin. Always comfortable with a friendly local crowd-definitely hometown oriented regarding sports! Great food with exceptional daily specials. Fish specials on Friday are great. Order anything, it'll rock-guaranteed. THE BEST chicken wings!!! A great place to eat and enjoy a beer!
