Good, but never hurts to improve. – I am a former employee of Bucks. Reading the first review by babbbsy, I found some flaws. It is crowded because it is an enjoyable place, and one of the few that has the music and dancefloor that we provide. It actually has good ventilation compared to the other smoking bars in Bismarck/Mandan. We also have a large capacity, at 430. There is no better way to use our space than we do already.
There is no room for expansion. The basement is not possible to open up because of the kitchen, garbage rooms, and use by employees. And the upstairs holds all of our extra bars/beer baths/ and items needed for competitions and events, not to mention the speakers/fog machine/wires/lights for the dancefloor. With our liquor license and city laws we don't allow drinks outside the way it is, so we couldn't have or control outside seating. Also, look around the bar where is there room for a larger parking lot? THere isn't. Its actually very large and well lit. Never heard a complaint about it before.
I worked there for a year and a half, and any complaints are about employee issues and have nothing to do with the establishment. The only things I'd like to see is smoke free (in Bismarck/Mandan as a whole not just Bucks) and food on Monday's and Tuesday's again. Otherwise I enjoy it.
Grossly overrated meat market – This bar has alot more potential than it is using. Too crowded, poorly ventilated, and poor use of space. Expand, open up the basement and provide an upstairs, add on and make a larger permanent outside seating with stage and buy a larger, well lit parking lot.
