One of the few places in Invercargill with consistently great food, service and surrounds. A clear stand out in a pool of average ITL establishments.

We went to Buster Crab on a Wednesday night and it was full. The service was great and the food was excellent. I really enjoyed the whitebait fritters . Mmmmmm. Would reccommend to everyone and would definitely go there again. Keep up the good work.

Special room allocated for our group great to not disturb other diners plus private. The staff so attentive and great at recalling our individual orders by memory. I had salmon which calamari which was delicious complimented by wine from Central Otago. The menu is extensive and prices are certainly what you would expect to pay. Always know this is a... More

Great meals, a-la-carte service,private dining rooms a real treat in the elegant town of Invercargill. Start your meal with the bread loaf and beet root relish and indulge with the famous Blue Cod. Warm atmosphere great decor. Pricy but what the heck! You won't be disappointed.

So so yum! I only had an entree. I got a seafood dish. All food cooked to perfection, and the accompanying sauce was to die for. The garlic bread on the side was a nice little treat. Will definately be back for mains in the future!

Spent a week in Invercargill visiting family and they recommended an evening meal at the restaurant. We had a stunning meal which left us more than satisfied and only wishing we had room left for desert - saddly not this time. A great choice on the menu, which included a glutten free selection which the staff were only too happy... More

Friends and I had dinner at Buster Crabbs to celebrate a birthday but were disappointed that the seating put one of us at the aisle end of the table where every waitress coming past to service other tables would have had to inch around her. The lighting was also a bit on the dim side, find for romancing couples who... More

Eaten here a few times, all of which have been great experiences, the service was good, the food was excellent albeit a tad expensive, however our meals have been well cooked and presented. There is plenty of parking and the decor is very stylish, if not a tad dark round the entrance and bar area. I would highly recommend eating... More
