The service was fantastic, the food was excellent and the place had a very relaxed feel. The only bad thing I would have to say was the portion were large. Which meant I could fit in desert:-)

Service was excellent and the food just as good. We shared the duck terrine for entree - which was delicious. We had steak and salmon for mains, which were also good. Too full for dessert! Quirky menu too. Well worth going to if in invercargill

booked a business meal here for 6 people on Tuesday evening with customers recommendation. I have to say that the meal was sensational and much better than I expected.

Don't look all over town...just go straight to Buster Crabb. Great bar area, awesome food, top rate service. Know that it will be busy so just accept it & go with the flow. It will be worth it.
