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.

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

We do try and get the meals out as quick as we can but sadly on the occasional time this bottleneck can create a bit of a wait. Normally if this occurs we will offer our valued... More
