In McCormick Ranch and with outdoor dining patios overlooking Lake Marguerite, the locally owned restaurant and special occasion spot, which closed on Saturday, featured familiar American-style cuisine like steaks, chops, seafood, and pasta specialties.

Buster's was open for lunch, dinner, happy hour, and Sunday brunch in addition to featuring two private banquet rooms for celebrations and business meetings in a "resort casual" environment.

Buster's featured appetizers like tempura chicken tenders and clam chowder; main courses including grilled salmon, roast prime rib, and Chicken Sonoma; and desserts such as cheesecake and Mud Pie.

A final post on Buster's Facebook page had this to say:

"To all of our loyal customers and friends...

Thank you for your years of patronage. Thank you for making us a part of your lives, including us in your celebrations and allowing us the pleasure of serving you."

Thanks to a reader for the tip.

so sad - we enjoyed a wonderful happy hour on the patio with the ducks last week


Buster's was my late Mother's favorite restaurant.  Over the years we had many meals and celebrations at Buster's, and since her passing in 2011, when we visited Scottsdale we have come to Buster's to remember her--on her birthday on April 1st my son and his fiancee who live in Scottsdale sent pictures of themselves toasting Grandma Carol with her favorite cocktail--vodka on the rocks, with a twist and an olive. I was so sad to read about Buster's closing--losing another special link to my Mom. Thanks for all the great times and meals we enjoyed over the years!
