Stopped in for a 'cold one' and found an absolutely terrific bar. The owner (Bob) was so nice and friendly .. and the beer is cold. Wonderful spot for a drink or meal. Stop in if you're in the area. Can't go wrong.

We stopped at Buzzard's on a Saturday, after reading the raves. We were told there was an hour and half wait by a less-than-friendly blonde hostess. I put our name in. We played on the free arcade games, and as we waited I heard the hostess telling other people they were welcome to go upstairs and order appetizers while they... More

Went here with my wife and daughter; they had been here earlier in the week. Great food (Cajun-themed) for a good price. It was fairly quiet and the waitstaff was quick and friendly. Big portions. Would definitely visit again!

Wow, what a vibrant and happening restaurant! Loved our Cajun meal, loved the bustling atmosphere and business and great value too. Highly recommend this place but watch out, the portions are HUGE as well as tasty!

Had a great meal here on a Sunday night. We were seated right away, waitress checked to see if we had any questions on the menu, and even warned us that our meal had a little spice to it, just in case. Service was excellent and so was our food. A lot of choices and loved the Cajun kick to... More

Best authentic Cajun food I have found north of the Mason-Dixon Line. Have eaten here every time I go through LaCrosse for the past 10 years.

We sat at the bar instead of waiting 25 mins for a table. I ordered rice and beans.. hardly any rice! The beans were more of a flavored mash.. too heavily flavored for the tiny amount of rice. Husband ordered the chicken quesadilla which he said was great. Nice variety of craft beers.. We were excited to try the pearl... More

Going here is an experience! The food is amazing! If you want unbelievably delicious Cajun food this is the place to be! The atmosphere is fun & the service is very good. If you have time, take a walk upstairs to the Starlight Lounge for a step back in time!

Great place to grab a meal! On our cross country trip we found this place and decided to give it a try after all the positive reviews. It has a Louisiana feel to the menu but there is something for everyone. Definitely take a chance and give them a try!!!

Excellent meal. I was alone for lunch, & knew my husband & I would be having a big dinner that night. So I had a sandwich -- but if we'd gone for dinner, it would have been sooooo hard to decide, so many excellent choices. I had a "Bourbon Street Chicken" sandwich -- available with a choice of fries, hush... More
