“Good place to go”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 18, 2014 via mobile

We went there tonight and it was really good. We sat outside and enjoyed the weather. We had great food and service. We even got to enjoy feeding the turtles, ducks, and fish thanks to our great waitress who brought us more bread to feed them.

“Wonderful food and atmosphere!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2014 via mobile

I ordered the gator fingers for an app and the seafood pirogue for an entrée. Both were amazing! Service was prompt, friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. I would definitely come back next time I pass through Waco.

“Never been disappointed!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 6, 2014

This is a nice little getaway, there's just no beating the atmosphere. I've enjoyed many a good poboy sandwich, love the steak fries as well as the jambalaya. Great view of the Brazos, and the staff is the most friendly I've encountered. I always have a great experience at the "buzz" and plan on returning now that the construction has cleared up!

“Always Great!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2014

We visit this restaurant each year when we attend this conference and it never disapoints. The parking lot is somewhat of a mess if you can get past that but, they are now more easily accessed from the service road! The food is great...I got the shrimp po boy and it was great! The staff is friendly and handled a large group without any issues!

“Riverfront lunch”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2014

Ate here on the way from San Antonio back to Dallas. Hard to find entrance to the place due to current construction on I-35, but feel it's worth the hunt.
Nice outdoor patio in the back that is right above the Brazos river. Lots of beggars in the water below - turtles, ducks, and catfish. 3 yr old loved watching the riverlife swarm his dropped food.
We had chicken strips (average) with fries (seasoned and salted), and also had red beans and rice (average) with sausage (good and spicy).
Wait staff was very friendly to us. Food was okay, nothing spectacular.
