Awesome neighborhood bar in South Minneapolis. Great beer selection, 25-30 taps and 109 bottles when I was there. Our server (Jon) was extremely knowledgable and friendly - total beer geek, which is perfect. Small place with dark wood decor. Probably my favorite beer spot in the Twin Cities as of now.

Busters was a pleasant discovery. Residential neighborhood setting that you’ll miss if you blink. There’s apparently been a bar in this building for many years, but the owners of Busters upgraded, updated and upscaled the place. Long, but not quite as narrow as say a MacKenzie’s. Nice dark wood finishes on the walls. Very good tap selection. In addition to the beers listed on the tap list on their website, I was treated to Avery Maharaja on tap last night. Sadly it ran out shortly thereafter. Busy on a Friday night finding a table was a bit of a challenge, even at 9pmish. Had the walleye sandwich which was very good. Beer lines seem to be clean, although I think the place is pretty new, so to be expected. Location is a little out of the way for a lot of people unless you live in South Minneapolis. Still, this is a warm, nice, neighborhood bar with good food and a good beer selection that is worthy of the trek. Located between the 38th st. and 46th st. Hiawatha light rail stations, although a bit of a hike to walk from either as it is about 5 blocks west of the line. The 38th st. station is closer, at about .7 mi. Beer selection is among the better ones in the city, beating out Acadia Cafe and MacKenzie’s, although perhaps not as good as say a Bryant Lake Bowl.

Nice bar in South Minneapolis. Had a good selection on tap, excluding the Stella for $6 :-) 100ish bottles as well. Only complaint is the individual bathroom for dudes. Some guy was camped out in there and we had a line 3 deep waiting to go. Update - stopped in for bourbon barrel week and it was just amazing. Love this place!!

Definitely a place to stop by in Minneapolis. Nice atmosphere, good service, decent list (though not as extensive as Happy Gnome).

Busters has reopened and is every bit as great as it was before the fateful fire. Excellent if unspectacular tap list. Scratch cooking from the kitchen here offering up bar classics with a gourmet angle. All this in a friendly, no pretense environment. Great little place.

Glad I came here! Was lucky to get a spot at the bar and the owner even brought me a stool! Little warm where I’m sitting right across from the griddle n friers, but the door is open and a nice breeze is wafting in. Air is good. Customers on my right are super friendly, ditto the bartender. The cooks are cranking the food out and to my eye, it looks faultless. And they sure are serving a lot of it! Got a tv on with the Olympics on behind the bar; small, good picture, and works for me. Lots of dark wood in the place including ceilings. Good selection of draft and bottled beers. Patio in front is busy but has some open tables. If I lived anywhere near here, I can see being a regular. Probably give it a better score too.

Stopped on a Thursday night, sat at the bar, ordered a mildly overpriced sampler (14 bucks for 5 samples) but the samples were of anything including cask beer, bartender was awesome and attentive, tap list was pretty sweet and all in all a great time, as night progressed bar keep was willing to talk about beer and biking. this place is small but worth it. parking is on the street but easy to find.

Lots of excellent taps, and a great flight sampler at a great price. Lots of good current stuff and decent pub grub to boot. I will visit here again.

Busy place. Noisy and crowded on a Friday evening. Sports TVs everywhere, with the sound turned down. 32 taps, a lot of them Midwestern brews (Bell’s, Founder’s, Surly, Central Waters).Some ciders and imports. The beer list won’t impress beer geeks at all. Variety of sandwiches, pizzas, salads. We had mussels, which were just okay. Service was rushed -- in her hurry to serve and later take away plates, the unsmiling server twice spilled stuff on our table, nearly missing us and my rating notebook.... I don’t think I’ll go there again.

Nice place nestled right in the Minneapolis suburbs. Good selection of craft beers. Staff is typically kind of crabby but has gotten better in my recent visits. Food was decent but a bit pricey. Parking can be a little tough when it is busy. Liked the atmosphere. Update: I really want to try to like this place but I have now been here 4 times and everytime it’s something. This time they were out of pizza dough and the food seemed really greasy. Probably won’t be back, just too many other good options in the cities for cheaper.
