A longstanding restaurant in Scottsdale is no more: After over 20 years, Buster's on the Lake has shuttered.
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:
