    The restaurant is cold during the winter. When I mentioned it to the server she said "Well, it's an old building"

    Busters was indeed an experience. But not a great experience! I had the oysters, grilled, and they were dry and rubbery, with cheese , butall without much taste. The Food was generally too spicy & overall mediocre.. Service was good.

  • FRIDAY NIGHT AT BUSTER'S PLACE
    OpenTable Diner Since 2010
    Dined on 2/1/2013
    EVERYTHING WAS GREAT, WITH THE EXCEPTION OF OUR BEER MUGS, THEY WERE NOT FROZEN OR EVEN COLD, AS YOU WOULD EXPECT IN A SEAFOOD RESTAURANT. THE GRILLED OYSTERS WERE SO TINY I HAD TO SQUINT TO SEE A FEW OF THEM. THE OYSTERS ON THE SEAFOOD PLATTER WERE MUCH BIGGER, HOWEVER SOME WERE OVERCOOKED. OTHER THAN THESE FEW ISSUES, EVERYTHING ELSE WAS FANTASTIC. THE FRIED CATFISH WAS AWESOME, AS WERE THE SHRIMP! ALL OF THE DESERTS WERE TO DIE FOR, ESPECIALLY THE CHEESE CAKE! OVERALL, I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS RESTAURANT.
