Relax by the river

Great place to relax by the river. We had the Seafood Fiesta, shrimp, oysters, crab legs and shrimp salad. That with a couple of Happy Hour beers was fantastic. Our server was very attentive & timely.

Twenty of us ate here while at a symposium and had a great dinner. I kinda thought 20 might overwhelm a place or ruin our experience but no everything was great. Our waitress was great aiming to please every last one of us. There were no glitches at all. I had the crawfish étouffée and it was outstanding. The place... More

Another potentially good place to visit with a nice patio area overlooking the Brazos River.The food is pretty good with a good selection to chose from. However these positives are spoiled by average servers and dirty tables. Housekeeping needs to be improved. No one wants to enter a place and see numerous uncleared tables.

Great location. You could watch turtles in the river from your table. Great spinach artichoke dip. Eating on the river was a blast. Great view of the town and bridges.

I really could not find anything on the menu all that impressive. The pricing was a little high for what you got. I would most likely not go back.

The appetizers we got were huge! You really get alot for the money and the best part of eating here is feeding the fish and turtles outside ! The drinks are a little pricey otherwise it's a good place to go

Arriving in Waco to drop our son off at Baylor. Long drive from DFW and all three of us were hungry. Stopped at Buzzard Billy's. Liked the place when we walked in. It was after lunch and expected slow service, not the case. Greeted and seated promptly. Big open place and could be noisy at the right (or wrong) time.... More

Server attentive and fun to sit on patio. Food was bland or just plain overseasoned without regard for the cuisine it emulates.

The location was pretty much all we enjoyed. The food was average and the service was terrible. It took a really long time to get our food and the young waitress with the really long blonde braid kept coming by to complain about the management and the kitchen staff. When she brought our food out, she was bad mouthing the... More

Fun Cajun restaurant in Waco. It's a bit hard to get to now with the I-35 construction. The food is good. Excellent hush puppies. There is also deck seating overlooking the river.
