“Many restaurants can't match this food truck”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2014

We were lucky enough to get food from Buster's Sea Cove's food truck at a music festival on the weekend. Of the half dozen trucks on site, Buster's provided the best meal experience. (one of the trucks served cold fries for $5!
We had both the shrimp and the Octopus tacos, both were cooked perfectly (no small feat with octopus!) and the sauces were excellent accompaniments to the protein.

I'm a bit of a seafood snob, and I'll eat at Buster's any time!

“Really, Really Good”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2014

i brought the kids to St. Lawrence Market for the first time….they loved it. My son had the lobster roll….he was moaning while eating. He usually doesn't eat french fries…but loved the thin cut fries cooked in peanut oil. My daughter and I share the halibut and chips. The fish was so fresh and tender and the batter was not too heavy at all. My only complaint would be that pieces of fish were quite small.

We will definitely go here again.

“very good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2014

I go to this place often. Staff is friendly and head Chef (Mo) is awesome. Crabcakes are amazing here. Also the price points for food could be cheaper as it a takeaway place in the market which little overheads and no seating (other than part of market).

“Best dining investment of the year!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2014

I stumbled upon Buster's Sea Cove in the rear of the St. Lawrence Market, and what a find! I had the best fish and chips of my life (halibut and chips) for a very reasonable price. The halibut was fresh, flavorful, tender, and very lightly breaded. The chips (cooked in peanut oil) were very tasty and seemed not to be salted, which I consider a plus - diners can always add their own salt to taste instead of having a heavy dose of salf imposed on them. They were served with a healthy serving of cole slaw which had very light dressing - simply delicious. There was a long line to order, but it moved quickly and it's fun to sit at the counter to watch the food being prepared. You can get the food to go or "eat in," and there are tables nearby as well as counter space. Even better, there are lots of picnic tables surrounding the market to allow you to sit outside and enjoy the food and the view. Afterwards, enjoy wandering around the St. Lawrence market - there are lots of things to see and some fabulous bakeries - try the pecan butter tart for dessert!
