I ate here in the spring of 2014, and this place is one of the three reasons that I'm planning a family trip to Lacrosse in the spring of 2015. I'm looking forward to sharing the experience with my family! The party I was with was seated in the window overlooking the street on a day where there was a... More

Great selection and kid friendly. Recommend the buzzard eggs. I was told to try them and I was quite satisfied. Good portions too.

We went here on a Thursday night. Yes, it was busy, so I knew we'd have to wait to get a table...only ten minutes...great! Well, we waited a good 20 minutes before our server came to get drink orders. We almost left, but finally our server came. She said, "I didn't see you guys over here." She had to walk... More

I can honestly say I've never had a bad meal from here! The Armadillo Eggs, the chicken quesadilla, and the pepper jack cheese bites are our favorite appetizers! We've tried many different entries and have liked everything we've ordered. They also have some delicious drinks from their bar as well! Highly recommend this restaurant to everyone!

I end up at Buzzards about once a week for lunch. They have a great menu with unique options to the La Crosse/Midwest area. I love the cajun gumbo, the blackend chicken, or a Po'boy. The food is great and the service is always good. I highly recommend.

Buzzard Billy's was within walking distance of the Marriott in the historic downtown. I read ahead about the Armadillo Eggs, so I had to try them thinking that they weren't going to be that great.....wrong. These are hand-made with real moist chicken and fresh jalapeno. I made a meal of the Armadilo Eggs and glad I waited to order an... More

As with most of the shops/restaurants in La Crosse, WI...the atmosphere is my style! Exposed brick, tall ceilings and lots of ¨stuff¨ to look at! I've been here three times...the first two were later in the evening and we had flawless service. The third time was at lunch time and...wow...we were ignored for quite awhile...kind of annoying, and my daughter... More

AWESOME!! I have had and love their Alligator bites and love the Eggplant boat filled with seafood and cheese....they have a great menu to pick from and love the décor of the place. Staff was always pleasant and helpful when answering our questions. Sometimes you have to wait for a awhile to be seated but the wait is worth it.

As the only place for cajun food in LaCrosse, you just have to give these guys credit for trying. On top of that, the food is pretty darn good, too. Cold beer, fun atmosphere, friendly servers...it all adds up to a good time. Plus, you can work up a good sweat without moving around very much.
