Busby's Restaurant Review

: This busy Westside hangout transcends normal sports bar boundaries. The food is the main draw, even though the joint stays true to its sports theme. Guests can lounge in plush leather chairs while watching games on plasma-screen TVs, while others might opt for a free game of pool or backgammon. The sports-savvy staff can even offer insight into specific games. A DJ at nightfall transforms the vibe from a sports-fan haven to a trendy nightclub with a line out the door. Menu options include starters like sweet corn fritters, a decent steak chili, and crab cakes. There are plenty of burgers and salads, and entrées feature the likes of fish ‘n’ chips, poached cod with Champagne vinaigrette, and a ten-ounce filet mignon. Desserts are limited, though the star player would be the Belgian waffle topped with bananas and Nutella. Cocktails are the best option here with low prices atypical in often expensive Santa Monica.
