Horrible. Greeted by the rude owner !!! Ordered fried shrimp and oysters with a baked potatoe. I still cannot believe they served us that food!! The potatoe was so hard and shriveled that we couldn't cut it. The oysters and shrimp were soggy and fried in old grease. We had 5 shrimp and 3 oysters on our combo platter!!! When... More

Buster's had been a "must-stop" lunch spot for our family vacations for years. Many times the guys stopped in for lunch after golf then the whole bunch came back for dinner. Fried pickles & burgers where the best. It's been several years since we have been back to Destin....top on the list of must haves was a stop here. Sadly... More

Had a good dinner with some friends. Unfortunately had a problem with the order. I ordered the "Busters House Grouper" which turned out to be just blackened grouper, that did not include the sauce that the menu said came with it. After asking the waitress for the sauce that was stated on the menu I was told that they were... More

We had planned to go to another restaurant for dinner, but we had not been to Buster's in a while, so we decided to stop in. The restaurant is not much to look at, but the food and service is very good. We had some awesome onion rings and Gumbo. The grouper fingers were as good as ever. This is... More

Two of my favorite things at Busters are the fish sandwich and the gumbo. We usually visit every time we are in Destin. This is also a good place to watch sports on TV.

I haven't been in Busters for over a year, but it used to be one of our favorite places to get grouper fingers, oysters and fried pickles. I stopped in for lunch and was surprised how much this sports bar/restaurant's interior has seemed to Allen on hard times. I see te had a new mnu and higher prices. I ordered... More

We always stay near Busters and eat there a couple times on each visit. This time they hands down won the bread pudding award!! The pudding was wonderful and the pecan praline topping make it fantastic! ( They need to lighten up on the hot sauce in the gumbo however! Good, real gumbo is not spicy and this was way... More

Food frozen nothing fresh, service well we ordered drinks and appetizers. They came no problem. Then ordered main course. I ordered the breaded shrimp, what was I thinking. It was frozen shrimp undercooked. The server... More

Wife and grandchildren went in while I parked the car. When I came in I was really surprised that so few people were there. There was no one at the bar and it was the Happy Hour where they feature OysterMania. They had put our party in a table where the sun coming in was brutal (place was 20% full,... More

We go to Destin at least once a year and Buster's is always a must! The shrimp is fantastic! We've enjoyed everything on the menu! You've got to try it, you'll love it too!
