right on the boardwalk this restaurant offers both outdoor and indoor seating. We had breakfast a couple of times and it was tasty and very reasonable

we use to go there for years but stopped going. the food and service went from great to ok. happy hour is a joke. the parking price has gone through the roof. i can not think of one thing that gives you the WOW factor. very clean, great view, inside and out dining.

I am not sure if this place was supposed to have a Hawaiian flare or Mexican or Sports Bar. I was confused by the theme and menu. The food was bland and seemed phoned in. Too pricey for common fare. Best thing about it was it's location. Other than that... eh.

Stopped by Buster's on the way back to our hotel to grab a few cold brews. The bartender was great, always one step ahead of us! I highly recommend this place for a cold beverage.....or two :)

While staying at the Marriott for a conference, we hit this place a few times. For lunch we had the pork sandwich fish tacos. Both were just ok. Went for Breakfast one day and got the Santa Cruz Skillet and that was good, along with a Bloody Mary that was very good as well. The best time we had there... More

Great fun atmosphere with really good fish tacos...always a plus when the bartender has an engaging personality and enjoys his job.

Was hesitant to go here because of some of the reviews, plus being a "touristy" area you never know. Glad we went. Everything was great. No complaints! We made a reservation for the patio seating for a Sunday lunch. Our table was ready when we arrived. We were seated promptly. Our waiter Jake was great. Friendly, informative about the menu,...

I highly recommend Buster's for breakfast. Good menu, good food, friendly service, and great view. The eggs benedict choices are really good.

We visit San Diego once or twice a year and have tried a number of spots for breakfast. My husband wanted a "real" breakfast with toast not bagel or muffin. We rode bikes over to Seaport Village and found the menu at Busters to fit the bill. Our waitress Gabrielle was excellent. The rest of the staff were mediocre and... More

I had a 1/2 sandwich, 1/2 salad. The salad was better than the sandwich. A very average meal with an above average location and view. Location is all they've got going for them. There must be something else? I was staying in the Hyatt and needed a quick lunch, Service was just ok. Pretty slow.
