Buster's Restaurant & Bar

This long-time local institution has always been a safe bet in the past, unless you're allergic to MSG (it's in almost everything). I've always been fond of the French onion soup, seafood chowder, and chicken Sonoma. Recently the ownership changed, and the place was remodeled, for better or worse. The menu has also changed, and not really for the better. The bread basket has gone downhill: what used to be a luscious, moist zucchini muffin is now a tiny, hard nubbin. The chicken Sonoma is still good, and the new chicken pot pie is OK. Meh. I'm just not as inclined to go there anymore.

Buster's is now closed. This is a classic example of trying to fix something that isn't broken. Buster's had a loyal customer base, who were alienated by the recent attempts to do a makeover to attract new business. In the end, people stayed away in droves. R.I.P.
