The line outside of the Buff in the mornings should speak for itself. Worth the wait! Although there were many people waiting, it doesn't take long for a table. Came on a Saturday morning and had a table in 15 minutes. Great menu options for...More

The Buff is one of those higher scale eateries at a reasonable prices. The food is good and service is very good. EZ parking. I had an omelette prepared just right but a little bland of seasoning. Easily remedied.
