Sadly, this was one of the best seafood restaurants back in the day. Family situations change and consequently there doesn't seem to be anyone to keep it up to high standards as before. It needs a complete facelift and the right person to manage it....More

We have eaten at this restaurant for more than forty years. We understand that it has closed permanently. The food and atmosphere were always above average. This is/was a seashore restaurant so don't expect glamour; just a good time with good food, atmosphere and service.

Went to Busch's with my 80+ year old parents. The hostess, Pauline, was very accommodating as my parents walk w/canes. It was great that my parents could order from the Dine Early menu, while my husband and I chose entrees from the regular dinner menu....More

There was once a time when Busch's was the place to go in Sea Isle City. Now, it is quite a different story. Once, crowds lined up outside awaiting to be called for their reservation. Today, no crowds. Tourists, especially, don't mind spending a few...More
