Unfortunately this landmark bar and restaurant were destroyed by Hurricane Irma, but it is our understanding that the property is for sale. Undoubtedly someone will buy it and reopen this wonderful location when the rest of the Oyster Pond is rebuilt.

Mr. Busby’s was a perfect beach bar and restaurant. It sat right in the sand on the spectacular Dawn Beach. There’s is nothing left, enough to bring a grown man or woman to tears.

Loved this place and returned continually. “All the way, Grey”. Our favorite restaurant mgr, We had such great days hanging out at this one of a kind beach grill. Cold beer, good food, nice staff, and a beautiful view.
