Saw the long line and had to try. We got through fairly quick as your order is taken while your in line. Had the Halibut sandwich and it was perfect. The batter was light and crispy. The bun and garnishes were fresh and the sauce was the an excellent compliment to a beautiful halibut sandwich.

This is the place to find great & cheap seafood! The seafood is displayed at the counter & cooked upon ordering so it's a guaranteed fresh! Was there on a saturday for lunch & the queue was really long with about 20 people in line ahead of me but the speed at which each customer had their food served up was really quick. There was 1 staff that took our order as we waited so when we arrived at the cashier, we just had to pay and I got my food in less than 5 minutes after payment.

I had the grilled atlantic salmon with salad (or fries) for about CAD 14 which sure was an excellent choice! It was a huge & thick chunk of salmon fillet that was well seasoned & fresh that it can be eaten on it's own! The portion of salad was well enough to feed 2 people. There was a huge variety of coleslaw, lettuce, carrots, onions, tomatoes - all fresh & crunchy. The dressing comes generously in a separate container so you can have the choice of a healthier option of no dressing on your salad.

Buster's sea cove is an excellent place to come for lunch. A tip: be ready to stand while eating as seating are limited but do not let this deter you from heading down and be wowed by their great seafood.

My husband and I enjoy the seafood fare prepared at Buster's! Everytime we venture out to shop at St. Lawrence Market we always enjoy our lunch at Buster's. Today we thoroughly enjoyed a Halibut Sandwich and Lobster Bisque Soup which we shared. The portions are such that you can do so easily. Everything was fresh, well prepared and delicious. We arrived at 130pm and there was still an incredible line up but they processed people efficiently. It seems to be very popular. Seating is available inside and there are several picnic tables outside too.

You have to seek it out ... But once there it's worth the line up , this is way worse at the weekend, if you are lucky you may find a seat, outside is great in the summer..the food is all cooked fresh, and really you don't have to wait too long.. It's a bit pricey for what it is...the choice is good for such a small place....would recommend...

We decided to eat here after reading all the positive comments on trip advisor. The first night we got there at 5.30pm and were told they had shut so we came back on the Friday at 5pm to have some fish and chips. We opted for the calamari and chips and grilled prawns. Both were nice but nothing to write home about and I felt the price was rather expensive at just under $30 for the 2 meals and a drink. Food is nicely presented on printed newspaper.
