After a lifetime of visiting Busch's, I was relieved to hear I could get my favorite she-crab soup at least one more summer. It seemed like keeping the bar and take-out kitchen open could have been a good idea. As I chatted with the man packaging my soup, he said, "No offense, but I can't wait for you people to... More

Not much more to say. A great 100 year run ends with an asterisk (take out) No one knows why the owners decided to close a landmark that, at least in terms of customers, was booming until this summer. I suppose that's their business. My family and I will treasure the 15 years of memories, great food ,great people ,... More

Bad odor; could be mold. No smile on bartender,and he has been with restaurant for years.Food is in styrfoam box. Older wait staff seems uninterested in service. I guess the owners should just call it a day; time to take all the profits from all those great years and either fix up or retire to Florida. It was a great... More

We have been going to Busch's for years. We live within walking distance. We were curious as to what it offered in 2014 considering that the restaurant was closed but bar and package goods area still open. 6 of us walked there for take out. We sat at bar while waiting. Drinks are overpriced. All those dining in the small... More

We went to Busch's last night and found the main restaurant permanently closed...only a bar with a small seating area remains. The corner of Busch's still serving customers contains an over-sized bar and there is not enough seating for small family groups. The menu was less that one page and most entrees were fried. The place was unrecognizable. We left... More

We too were saddened to find out that Busch's no longer offered dine-in service. We went ahead and got the take-out anyway and it just doesn't even come close to measuring up. If it weren't for the remaining 10 employees I would suggest closing altogether! Don't waste your time or money!! What a shame!!!

Our family was so sad to hear that the original Busch's Seafood restaurant was closing it's doors after all the years that it was in business. We have so many wonderful memories of gatherings there over the years, we were all very upset. Then we found out that although the huge restaurant was closing, they were still going to keep... More

WOW. WHAT A GREAT DISAPPOINTMENT THIS USED TO BE ONE OF THE GREAT RESTAURANTS IN SOUTH JERSEY, SERVING THE FINEST QUALITY SEAFOOD. We have been going there for 40 years and have known two generations of the family owners , they ruined the landmarks reputation. Everyone would have been much better served if they have only put a close sign... More

I have been a patron of this Restaurant for the past 47 years and have ALWAYS been very happy with everything . Today I went for dinner and It was the most disappointed I have ever been at any resturant ever. They turned it into a corner Bar. Today's special was a Hamburger. The famous She Crab Soup was served... More

Waiting at the old back door is no longer acceptable for this formerly prosperous restaurant . I was waiting in line, by the old back door, just waiting for a quart of their delicious she crab soup. I have been going there for about 50 years. I will never go to Busch's again, ever. Horrible service , poor setup, I... More
