Cajun lite with many other options, sports bar vibe, large balcony over the Brazos river. We have worked with these people for large parties and eaten there several times. The food is completely edible, the price is entirely fair and the view is world class. No problem with the service.

We have been dining at this location for over 10 years but this is the first time that we dined under the name Buzzard Billy's. They bill themselves as Cajun. They can have the title for menu items but I think they would be kicked out of Louisiana. I had the seafood gumbo. The solid ingredients were there but the... More

Recommended by our front desk agent and it was good time. It reminded me of Razoo's a little bit but with its own identity. Service was very good and the food was good.

The cold boiled shrimp appetizer was the star of the show. My wife and I split the combination plate (shrimp, catfish, oysters, all fried) and we had more than we could eat. Better than average food, great location, attractive building and full bar. What's not to like?

We started with sitting outside which was very nice however the temps drove us inside. Our server took a little longer to wait on us and once we moved inside it was like she forgot us. The inside was decorated very cute. We ordered the Armadillo Eggs, they were just ok, kinda dry. I ordered as my main dish Shrimp... More

We stopped by here on the way through Waco. Primarily drawn in because it was on the river. The food was average, nothing spectacular. Didn't particularly like the crawfish étouffée. Hush puppies were too greasy. Service was good and view was nice. Don't expect a stellar meal, just an average one.

Girlfriend trip to Waco and I was in the backseat starving. I found Buzzard Billy's on Trip Advisor and convinced my friends to eat lunch somewhere that wasn't a chain. The location is lovely and the food was fantastic. One of my friends ordered Swamp Soup (a creamy cheese soup with shrimp, crawfish, potatoes etc) and I listed after it... More

I was told about this place from a friend who recently visited and it did not disapoint. The food was excellent and the staff was very friendly. The food is also very well price for the portion size. The view is also great at night. We will definitely be returning!

We are in town for the Little League Softball Southwest Regional tournament. We were recommended by our front desk clerk at Courtyard Marriott (Karina C.) to try Buzzard Billy's. Cajun/seafood was delicious! Drinks were cold as advertised. Service was efficient and effective. A/C was pumping on a very hot and humid day. We will go back! Shane - San Antonio
