Excellent Venue

Had dinner here with friends on a very busy night. The staff were efficient, friendly, and helpful. The menue and wine list had a good range and the food was well cooked and presented.

Attended Buster Crabb with 4 others, the place was very busy but the meals where still within 20-30 mins from ordering, they were delicious I got the pork belly and it was to die for, 2 others got the steak and said the same thing. NO complaints here, plus great cocktails and a courtesy van.

Buster Crabb conveniently across the road from our motel, Homestead Villa. Walking in to this villa it was a wow ! Fabulous decor and given it was a dismal evening so wonderfully warm and welcoming. Staff were great, making you feel very welcome. A small bar in the corner with gas fire, comfy chairs you certainly relax. Menu was superb,... More

I booked for an early evening meal and there was hardly anyone dining although there were a few at the bar enjoying wine and coffees. I ordered the Pork loin and roasted veges together with a glass of the Terra Sancta pinot noir. I don't eat potatoes at all (and I'm sure there are many others with my dietary requirements)... More

I went there with my partner and we had a fantastic time. I had steak and he had the mixed grill. Everything was delicious especially the chicken (on mixed grill). I usually refrain from ordering chicken at a restaurant because it's such a boring meat but Buster Crabb cooked it to perfection. It is so delicious that it makes me... More

Friends visted the week before on a Monday night and said that the Ribeye steak was not great and the restaurant had dropped off from their previous visit, so I was a bit worried when we visited on the Saturday of the big Rugby game. Queens Birthday weekend. But it was great. The food was exellent, the service unobtrusive, all... More

We went on a chilly night expecting to find things quiet, but the place was humming. They found a table for us although we had no reservation. The food was excellent, and the service was prompt and efficient.

I was taken to Busters for lunch and had beautiful yummy fresh bluff oysters cooked to perfection. The service was prompt and friendly. I can't wait to go back again.
