Very good seafood! I was able to modify my order easily. Kids ordered pasta off regular menu & it was too spicy.

It was a cold Sunday evening and I was looking for a great seafood meal. I enjoyed the fried seafood combo (catfish, shrimp and oysters). It was well cooked and delicious. My server disappeared for long periods and my beverage was not refilled in a timely manner. I waited ten minutes after I finished my meal for my check.

I used to love this restaurant but lately it seems it is just a hit and miss. Sometimes its good and sometimes it is too salty to eat. The view is absolutely great, but the wait staff seems to follow the kitchen - a long wait. Really with they could get it all together so it could be a return... More

This was such a fun place to eat. We sat out on the patio over the water, and there were so many ducks, turtles, & catfish. My daughter had fun feeding them. The plates come with a lot of food, me and my fiance could have shared. We both got 2 different po boys & they were really good. The... More

You can't beat the view of the Brazos, but my one and only trip was on a Saturday around 2 p.m. Not busy at all, but our order took more than 20 minutes to get to our table. Service was great, but she can't help how long the kitchen takes. My shrimp po boy was average. Fries average. My son's... More

We saw a billboard for the place, and couldn't resist. I mean, really--"Buzzard Billy's?" Anyway! We ate outside over the river because it was so nice out, and this would be our last meal in Texas for quite a while. Service was great, and so was the welcoming committee of cowbirds, ducks, grackles, and turtles. I swear some of those... More

Went to Buzzard Billy's on game day (Baylor vs. TCU) and had a great lunch. Gumbo was Great. Monster Mozzarella Stix (Monsterella) were the biggest and cheesiest ever! A Po' Boy of Shrimp and Oysters...OMG Good. Everything we had was great. We've been before and have never been disappointed.

Great waitstaff, knowledgeable about the menu and provided excellent service. I had the seafood pirogue (recommended by the server) and it was amazing! We were provided with a beautiful view of the river while we ate and discussed our business. I would definitely come back.

Outstanding location right on the Brazos River just across I-35 from McLane Stadium. Great atmosphere for a football weekend. Our server was excellent. I'm not a big fan of Cajun food, but the seafood combo was good and they have a nice selection of beers. There is chicken fried steak for those who don't like seafood and if you want... More

If you like Cajun food this is a must. What it lacks in fancy it makes up for in good. Service is a bit slow. View of the Brazos River is stupendous. We would go back to Waco just to eat at Buzzard Billy's.
