This restaurant was a short walk from our motel, which we appreciated after a long day in the car. The outside looks unassuming, but it was recommended by the desk clerk at the motel. I had a steak sandwich, and my wife had a chicken...More

I had the grilled walleye and my husband had the buffalo burger. Both were so good. The homemade soup was beef noodle which was very good. The salad bar had lots of good toppings. The only thing I didn't like was that it only offered...More

The Buffalo is just down the street from our hotel. We arrived late, after a long drive. The interior needs updating -- carpeting is pretty bad. The salad bar was fresh and good. Our meals were fine -- fish dinner and cheeseburger -- but nothing...More

Friendly staff! Helpful staff! Good food (not super) and drinks, reasonable (not cheap) prices. However, the a/c perfume was overwhelming. Taste was distorted and both of us suffered from perfume overload.

We rolled in for a couple of drinks after a long cross-country road trip. It would have been nice to have exchanged a few pleasantries with the bartender but all he did was grunt. He is a master of the monosyllabic. The martinis were good...More

This was a decent restaurant for the weary traveler. Nice salad bar, good choice of options, and the server was nice, especially to our young daughter. Looks like the bar is probably pretty decent, but we were there at 5:00 p.m.!

We enjoyed ourselves. Had no expectations.The drinks (Old-Fashioned and Margarita) were strong and good. Really stocked salad bar. Onion soup was good. Server was sweet, friendly (without being fake) and efficient. My husband loved his Walleye.
