Delicious pasta & wondeful service

Just went here on a Sunday evening, and the service was great. Granted, it was very slow in there but the waiter was attentive and also funny! The pasta was great. I have never been disappointed by a meal here yet. - I have had less than great service only once, but that I won't hold against them.

Great lunch with 5 sisters, shared 2 orders each of armadillo eggs and blackened shrimp skewers, both delicious and filling. I also had a bowl of seafood gumbo, nice dark roux with just the right amount of spice. If you go do not miss the armadillo eggs!

Business lunch in LA Crosse. Based on the reviews, went here. The seafood gumbo was very spicy (but tasty). The hush puppies were very good. I loved the fried oysters. A bit weird in a po' boy, but great. (A po' boy with no debris in it?) The remoulade sauce was great. We would definitely eat here again.

We've been there a dozen times. Love bringing friends here for a unique drinking and dining experience. I'm a sucker for old brick walls and lots of odd ball stuff on the walls and hanging from the ceiling. Excellent menu, great drinks, excellent staff. 1st class. Don't miss.

We had another great meal at BB's. The menu has so many choices. It was very busy and we sis have quite a long wait but worth it. Only little problem was that since they were busy, our waitress was not quite as attentive as she could have been. We had to ask for drink refills after we were done... More

I have eaten at Buzzard's more than anywhere else in the area. There is nothing like it in the entire area. Armadillo eggs are a must which is bacon wrapped chicken breast stuffed with pepper jack cheese and jalepenos with ranch dipping sauce, YUM. The chicken alfredo is my all time favorite. Wings are also delish, my favorite is the... More

A large number of us went there for a luncheon get together. They take reservations and are always set up and ready for us. The service was great and so was the food. Great quantity of food for the money. A good time was had by all.
