Solid restaurant. Not fancy, but good food.

Pretty good food, especially the gumbo. Definitely a cajun-type atmosphere. A bit loud, but not too bad. The area that overlooks the water is nice, but it's kind of hard to get a table close to the window, and the outdoor dining area is a bit small. I'd go back, but I'd probably wait on an... read more

Food was very good. Our waiter was attentive. Cool atmosphere- right on river. First time at this newer location. Easy off from I-35.

Great Cajun food with views of the river. There was road construction that made it difficult to find the parking lot. We made a stop here on our way back from Austin.

The food here is ALWAYS good...but watch it if you don't like spicy food! The Andouille sausage, jambalaya, and crawfish etouffee will light you up, but boy are they good! The staff is wonderful and accommodating, and will do everything they can do get you seated quickly and feed you quickly. However, they have no problem with you hanging around... More

The service was fair but the kitchen was unacceptable. Food took a very, very long time to come out and then it was not hot. We didn't return it, but did not enjoy it either. Not really Cajun if you have had Cajun food before. Atmosphere is not impressive and maybe the outside patio might work for seeing the sunset... More

We went to Buzzard Billy's based on a recommendation from a local. The atmosphere on the water was amazing. Our waitress was quick and very helpful. Overall, it was a great experience. The food was not the best but maybe we just ordered poorly? We got the nacho's for the table and we all liked them. I got the blackened... More

This is the second visit in a row that it has been extremely disappointing. Last time my husband got the crawfish étouffée which we used to love. It had no flavor whatsoever. This time my parents split the étouffée and it was flavorless. I ordered the eggplant pirogue. It is supposed to come filled with shrimp and mushrooms. It was... More
