Well aside from the 45 minute wait, which would have been fine sitting at the bar - but that bar, staffed by one, made us wait another 15 minutes to order drinks. Perfectly nice staff which makes up for the poor service. The food was...More

Buzzard Billy's offers great atmosphere by the Brazos River and exceptional food. I enjoy their shrimp boil as well as the alligator. Their Cajun food is on point with taste. I've never been disappointed eating there.

This was the worst food and service ever. I could not even eat my steak, which was dry and without any flavor or seasoning. My girls couldn't eat the seafood they ordered!

The food is very good. All the orders are large so be hungry or order small. Nice view of the river. We sat inside but I would say most tables allow pretty good view. Will definitely go back.

Unique and entertaining atmosphere on the Brazos. Do not let the crowded parking lot keep you from enjoying the good food. My husband had the Seafood Eggplant Pirogue and loved every bite. I had the Crescent City Chicken and though it was a little too...More
