We live on Fort Myers Beach and to be honest with the 50 or so restaurants, only a handful are worth visiting. Since it’s off-season we’ve been venturing out and stumbled upon this place. It’s a nice change from the tiki bars and fish only...restaurants and is extremely laid back. It definitely is a locals place as we visited twice in one week and it seemed the same group was there, however they didn’t give you the vibe that you weren’t welcome because you weren’t one of them. First time we had Ryan who was super nice and welcoming and the second time we had Myra. She took a little bit to get a smile out of her but she was very nice too. We are always looking for lunch spots that have a simple “half sandwich, cup of soup” special and this place does and it was filling, delicious and greatly priced. Would definitely recommend.More

I am saddened to write a review about my most frequented bar, but after my last visit I decided to write my first ever review. I probably go to busters once or twice a week and love the atmosphere but andre the bartender there is...absolutely horrible. He seems to think he is running a Miami nightclub as this last time I visited he was extremely disrespectful to all the friends I brought and even laid a hand on my sister. I have never been angry enough to write a review but after being disrespected in a place that I casual go to It only felt right. This kind of service should never be necessary in a small dive bar like busters. I understand being strict on running a tight bar but no rules were broken and he was unnecessarily rude. I am writing this review for the busters staff in hopes that they will take a better look at who the have employed.More

Bad food. Terrible service. Redneck clientele. Will never go back there again. Too many great sports bars in the area. Don’t waste your time!

Went for lunch yesterday and husband and I ordered a reuben sandwich to share. It was the nastiest ever. When you tried to bite into it have the meat came out. The meat itself was full of fat and very tough. I know many people...like this place but I have to wonder if they have taste buds. I will never go there againMore

Family loved the all you can eat shrimp... my coconut shrimp was good... really cheese grilled cheese. Service was ok tonight.. not as good as other times we have been . It seemed like they were severely understaffed which impacted our server's mood and service....This has not been our experience in the past.More

Went into restaurant for “special of the day” and was apparently too early- as it was not available. Settled for other menu items. Fish dinner served missing items described in menu. Hamburger with uneditable past ripe tomato. How disappointing and waste of money. My mistake...of stepping into this restaurant will not happen again. Shame on this organization!!More

Absolutely terrible service. We were There an hour and never took our order. Brought it to the attention of hostess and waiter yelled “they will have to wait”. Left $10 to cover drinks and we left. Others with the group said they saw waiter take...money then tell group that we did not pay. Unable speak to manager- not able to be summoned. Can’t comment on food as we never got to order. Would not recommend this establishment.More

It's definitely a Tavern and a loud one at that, but oh the food is great! We enjoyed a number of different items from the menu and all four of us were really happy. Especially love what they do with shrimp!

We decided to go out a little later than usual and decided to give Busters a try. In the last couple years I have stopped for drinks but never dinner. First sign we ran into was a sign that we see at a lot of...places saying they are short staffed. We talked to the hostess and she added that she could sit us but couldn’t promise anyone to wait on us. They were very busy. We took the table and were waited on right away by a great server (wish I could remember her name). She was frazzled, super busy but was great to us. The family had meatloaf, chicken sandwich, chicken tenders and nachos. All came out quickly and were very well prepared. All meals were very good and we decided to have dessert with the chocolate cake, pecan pie and salted Carmel Ice Cream. It really was a great experience and we will be back.More

Tonight my husband picked up our order. The chicken tenders, fried onions were great. However, the fr fries (bland), onion soup (just ok), and (FRESH) lobster was so old that it actually had 2 barnacles on it's shell! It was extremely hard to crack and...it was very difficult to get the meat out. The "butter" was tasteless yellow greasy stuff, definitely not butter!!! The meat was tough and had no taste. It didn't even smell like lobster should! The Manager was absolutely no help or no offer to reimburse us. We will definitely NOT return to Buster's.More
