I like chicken wings. I got them tonight at Busters. The breaded wings had a nice crunch but no flavor. The naked wings with mild sauce had skin that was not crunchy. Who likes wings or any fried chicken that has slimy skins? And the...blue cheese dressing that comes with it is runny and room temp. I like my blue cheese dressing thick and cold. C’mon Busters I think you can do better.More

We went to busters bar two days before the state shutdown.we watched the evening bartender never wash her hands or use hand sanitizer she never sanatized the bar all the while putting her fingers in dirty glasses ,playing with her hair, touching clean utensils with...those same dirty hands.it was very scary to watch.More

We were a group of 6 friends. Everyone ordered a different meal and everyone was satisfied. Also great prices in drinks.

Went in on a lazy/slow afternoon. Service was even slower? A few people at the bar – one or two tables in the restaurant. Service should have been better. Lobster special - buy a bigger one for seven dollars more. Not worth it! Next time...around – I’ll pass.More

Busters Sports Tavern & Family Eatery is a very popular place to eat and drink during the busy winter season when Fort Myers is inundated by all the snowbirds. Our party of 4 arrived around 6 pm on a Friday night to a full parking...lot. After waiting for a few minutes for a parking spot, we then waited 45 minutes before we were finally seated. A big attraction is their popular daily specials. Check the Busters website for these daily specials as there is a different special each day. On this day (Friday) it was “All You Can Eat Shrimp” (fried, grilled or blackened) which three of us ordered while the fourth person ordered Homemade Lasagna which was served with a house salad and garlic bread. The menu is extensive with both land and sea dinners. The Florida Grouper is another popular choice. The food we ordered tasted very good and there was lots of it. However, with so many people, the noise level was very high making it sometimes difficult to carry conversations. Even trying to communicate with our server was a challenge and got the order mixed up a little. There was also live music but it was barely audible about the noise of the crowd.More

Had a great meal. Jane was our server and was fantastic. Right on top of taking care of us and made great suggestions on the menu. We enjoyed the Sunday steak special, turkey dinner with yummy stuffing and fish sandwich. All were huge portions and...delicious. We will be back for more!More

As local I have eaten here on several occasions I really like their food, but their customer service is awful and the staff is rude pretty much every time we have gone in there it’s a unpleasant experience because the staff. Me and girlfriend talk...about eating here a lot but decline most of the time because of our past experiences with staff. One occasion we tried to get take out I called the women who answered the phone I told her I wanted to place a order for pick up she rudely said, “we are out of Lobster” I said, that was fine we didn’t want Lobster and then she hung up on me.We went in another time and the waitress over charged us for our drinks and when we said something about it she got very rude and nasty and tried to argue with us about what drinks we had order. We tried another time and the bartender was very unfriendly. I order food and waited and waited and it never came out.So we ask about and she said”oh I forgot to put it in”and the meal came with other sides that were not advertised and she never said anything about being out of those sides so instead she just served me my meal with sides I never asked for. On many occasions we have called for take out and they never answer the phone. It’s real a shame because they have great food and have awesome nightly specials but the service is so bad I think we are done even attempting to eat there anymore.They get a two because of the food.More

Local sports bar/restaurant with a loyal following. Complete menu provided as well as excellent daily specials. Friendly service and reasonable prices make this venue a great choice.

Stopped here 3 times during a monthly visit. First two times we were greeted by bartender, Gina, she was pleasant and hard worker. Not only served bar but several nearby tables. Was a great ambassador for business and gave us history of owners and local...clientele. Food was always of the highest quality of bR type food. Our last visit was a different bartender and noticed different staff in kitchen. This visit did not have that friendly feeling of previous visits. Food was still same quality. There pizza is excellent for any location in nation but exceptional for Southwest Florida. Will be back.More
