Busby's Restaurant Review

: This busy Westside hangout stays true to its sports theme. Guests can lounge in leather booths while watching games on plasma-screen TVs, while others might opt for a game of pool or backgammon. A DJ at nightfall transforms the vibe from a sports-fan haven to a trendy nightclub. The menu is a bit more ambitious than your typical game-day fare. Starters include lamb meatballs with honey tzatziki, charcuterie and crab cakes. There are plenty of burgers and salads, and entrées feature the likes of fish 'n' chips, roasted salmon and rotisserie chicken. Desserts are limited to milkshakes, apple pie and chocolate layer cake. Cocktails are the best option here with low prices atypical in often expensive Santa Monica.
