The Bucket Brigade opened its doors in 1985 and catered to Firemen and the Neighborhood Folk. Back in those days, you could pick out and grill your own steaks. Beer was poured out of make-shift fire hydrants.

In 1996, a major renovation added a huge kitchen, a beautiful patio and a fresh face to the Bucket Brigade. Today, the Bucket Brigade still caters to the neighborhood, but regulars from all over come to eat, drink, watch sports and UFC fights, visit with friends, see their favorite bartenders, servers and cooks and to play Keno or video poker. We are a friendly, clean restaurant with outstanding food.

They always have their top-selling microbrews on tap (Widmer Hefeweizen, Widmere Drop Top, Mirror Pond, Black Butte Porter, Terminal Gravity, etc) as well as the top-selling domestics (Coors Lt, Bud, Bud Lt, and PBR), but we also have some tap handles dedicated toward seasonal brews. I’m out of the room. Come and see for yourself!
