The food was great and the Bloody Mary exceptional! Such a fun atmosphere! It is a little crowded and hard to hear people speak though.

Looking for a place with a little personality and fun. Found it at buzzard Billy's. We had great service and excellent food. The seafood jambalaya was fantastic and gluten free!!!. Great location to walk off your dinner, by checking out the local shops nearby.
