“Nice change”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 18, 2013

I've spent a fair amount of time in Louisiana, and thought the gumbo and PoBoy would pass muster down there. The funky setting kept me looking around for a good part of our wait. It was not an unreasonable wait given our timing Noon Saturday. I'd go again.

“Fun, Funky Eats”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 16, 2013

Was in LaCross on business and looking for a fun casual place to eat. Found just what I was looking for here! Lively atmosphere and crowd, bar and table service. Menu has lots of options and servers fun and courteous. Liked it so much, ate dinner there twice the week I was there. When back in LaCross will definitely be back!

“Quirky with eclectic food and decor”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 15, 2013

In the heart of historic downtown La Crosse, Buzzard Billy's is an icon. The food has a Cajun accent that distinguishes it from other restaurants that serve somewhat bland, fat laden, midwestern fare. The bread pudding is soooo good! The two of us frequently order it to go, divide it in fourths (yes, it is that big), and enjoy it over two nights.

“Fantastic seafood meal!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2013

We loved this place so much we ate here twice over our 2 day stay in La Crosse. The staff was friendly and efficient and the food was excellent. We had both lunch and dinner and both were top notch. They have a good variety of beers on tap and by the bottle so we got to try a few local favorites while enjoying our meal. We will definitely eat here again on our next trip to La Crosse.

“Very Good Burger”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 13, 2013

I stopped in with a business group when we first got into town and had a bite. I had the bacon cheese burger and it was very good, flavor and taste was excellent.
