This is a college town and a college place. I though food O.K. and service same. This is sexist to say but one can overlook a lot of poor food and service with the co-eds dining and serving. Would I go back--Probably not. Not worth the price or problems getting in and out of the place. I should note that... More

Well, the view WILL be great as soon as they finish the construction on I-35. Difficult to get to right now but worth the effort. Can't beat the shrimp stuffed with jalapeno and cheese then wrapped in bacon!

An easy stop in Waco from I-20. The service is great and the food is really good. Fried shrimp and oysters are really tasty! Also have grilled seafood and pasta. This joint has real character

It took a long time for a server to offer us any drinks. She was very nice though and accommodated my 2 special requests; taste the cold slaw before ordering and request of a non-menu item (blackened alligator). I couldn't tell if my plate was alligator or chicken meat, but it tasted okay. Portion was adequate and facilities were clean... More

The place is off the interstate on the Brazos river. You can eat outside over the river or inside, where you can still see the river. The food is mostly fish related. They have catfish, alligator, shrimp. crawfish etc. But they also have non fish stuff. You can not go wrong with the beans/rice and sausage . The catfish is... More

This was my first visit to Buzzard Billy's. The setting is really neat out over the Brazos. They have outdoor seating on the water which is nice. The service was fast and friendly. The atmosphere was relaxing. The prices are reasonable. I ordered the Cajun Combo. The blackened catfish filet was perfect! The jambalaya was tasty but had a bit... More

I have often eaten here on my way from Austin to Fort Worth and the Cajun food is always good. However, on the last trip it was only about 25% full and took almost an hour to get our food. The people at the next table did wait an hour and they had hungry young kids with them. My husband... More

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
