  • Bar Staff are assholes. We bring in legit 20 people on a Sunday and they're pricks.
  • I imagine this is what hells like
  • This is why I do not like new restaurants.
  • How quickly people forget...this was never the fastest restaurant. Good things come to those who wait!
  • Buzzard Billys serves an alligator platter, a large serving of fried alligator, hush puppies, fries and coleslaw or a smaller appetizer-sized serving of just the fried meat.
  • Blackened catfish and hush puppies are my favorites. Great beer selection too!
  • I work the line... More than enough reason to eat your hearts out.... Buffalo buffalo burger soon to come. Keep asking for it...
  • I love this place but the Cajun food isn't anywhere near as authentic as Fat Tuesday's on SW 9th
  • Soooooooo slow
  • Definitely gotta try the Armadillo Eggs!!
  • @Eric M. I'd hate to see how bad they are to you if you brought 20 illegitimate people every night.
  • Mozzarella sticks are best ever!
  • Gator fingers are very good!
  • Crispin on tap and Honey Crisp in the bottle!
  • Pretty much everything and you've gotta try the bananas foster, mouth watering!
  • Everything is good here. Boneless wings are amazing. I just wish they had a spicier sauce than buffalo. Hurricane rum drink is so good.
  • This is neither cajun or creole. Ordered two bland dishes apparently. Service was good though
  • The Shrimp Po Boy yesterday was spectacular.... Today the Cajun Club....
  • Eric is the best bartender ever!
  • Failed to impress...the best thing here was the hush puppies. Very disappointed!
