First time to try Buster's in Covington. Liked everything about it from the front to the back. Friendly staff, full of smiles and laughter. Prompt with serving, timely prep of food and the taste was "out of this world". Could not have gone anywhere that would have matched up to a terrific lunch with family.

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.

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.
