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.

Driving to Seattle we could not find Buzzard Billy's. On the way back we had more time and better luck. We really enjoyed the Cajun food and the portions were enough for us to share. Great menu and choice of brews. An aside I was wearing my Buzzard Billy's tee shirt at a rest stop on the Mass Pike. A... More

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
