Always excellent food and service at Hensell's Oaken Bucket! A group of us (7) went out for Valentine's Day, a night early, the 13th. I had the delicious steak sandwich basket. A friend of ours always orders that, he loves it ! I did, too! I usually have a burger. The Oaken Bucket is a long-time local favorite in South... More
Great experience of being able to enjoy the river view along with a fantastic burger (so many choices)! We frequent this restaurant at least once a month all year long! Pricing is great. The fish dinners are oh-so good...sometimes it is hard to decide between the 2!
Went to sit on their patio by the river . Had to wait for a table, no problem. People left we ran for the table, success we made it. We had approximately 70 minutes to get our food and eat. 70 minutes later we finally got our food which consisted of dried up hamburgers. Had to get to go boxes.
We enjoyed our dinner at Oaken Bucket. The prices are about average, similar to the price of a burger at O'Charley's or equivalent restaurant.

I would recommend eating outside when the weather is nice. The... More
Enjoy sitting outside to ear our meal (have never had a bad meal 😎). Always pleasantly served & have always liked eating by the river view
Went to Hensell's for the first time today. Hubby ordered their steak burger and I had a party melt. By far one of the best burgers we have ever had. Tender, juicy cooked to perfection. We didn't look much beyond the burgers as that's what we went there for. Don't let the jammed parking lot scare you off there are... More

Being from out of state, I've only eaten at the Oaken Bucket five times in the past three years. Between each visit, I hear about how great their char-broiled burger is or read about it in some newspaper review. On each visit to South Bend, I try the Oaken Bucket again, ordering the much-"heralded" char-broiled burger, thinking that I must... More
Our daughter and her friend participated in the Sunburst half marathon in early June & stopped for post race lunch. The burgers were ginormous on our daughters recommendation. They had huge buns to fit the patty. It was a little more well done than I prefer but very juicy & flavorful. The fries were mediocre. Should have gone with the... More
