You have a view of the river from almost every table. And you can sit outside. If you are a tourist to Waco, this is a wonderful place to go. Food is good. But you definitely go for the view.

We had been driving past this place for a few months now and finally decided to give it a try. It was a weeknight and a bit early for dinner time. There was absolutely no wait and we got a booth by the window. we put in a drink order but the server came back to inform me they were... More

Terrible service! Even below the sub par we have been forced to become accustomed to in our society. Was not busy at all, several servers standing around. Saw one table leave with no service and another empty glass sit empty for 15 minutes. I inquired about beverages I was handed a drink menu. I asked about salad dressings and was... More

It's a cool if somewhat strange location. Overlooks river. Food is very good! My brother came once and had a bad experience (I think partly the waco water taste, which has gotten better and I'm used to anyways) so I steered clear for a while. However, I've been back a few times with friends and it's really good if you... More

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 mediocre. All of this with it's beautiful view of the lake and bridge over the... 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!

After several years of not going to Waco we had a family trip scheduled today. Before leaving we went to buzzard billy's probably my favorite cajun restaurant. My last trip was a while ago as stated earlier so it was at the old location just down the river on university drive. The food was as good as i had remembered... More

Had lunch here after visiting The Silos. Best food was our shrimp cocktail! Large delicious shrimp. All four of our meals were great except for the chicken breast was dry.
