Sophistication in a small town!

Buffalo Gal has an interesting varied menu with strong Asian influence. I really enjoy making a meal out of several appetizers. Occasionally some of the offerings have been too spicy, but overall an intimate, exception experience for the McCall area restaurant offerings.

The food was on the upper end, but we found the prices too high for the portion sizes. For two people who had two main courses, two glasses of wine and two beers in total the price was $100. I admit I'm new to the area and didn't realize restaurants in this area close several days a week or weeks... More

Buffalo Gal offers a surprising array of choices in the small town of Donnelly: Argentine beef, Thai hors d'oeuvres, and American favorites among others. It is refreshing that four nights of the week locals and tourists can count on good taste and an exciting array of choices. The service is friendly but sometimes slow. The atmosphere is charming and the... More

I'll sum it up with good food and service. We enjoyed the place, we had to wait a few minutes longer than we would at most food restaurants but it was worth the wait.

My second visit to Buffalo Gal and once again the food was outstanding! On this visit I got to meet the owner and Chef Tom Steinberg. This restaurant is certainly worth a visit when you drive to Donnelly, Idaho. The style of his cooking is one of the best I've tasted.

We just bought a cabin in Donnelly and decided to try this place. Had a weekend without kids and not only did we eat there Friday night, we went back on Saturday night too! Of course, Donnelly, Idaho isn't a Mecca of fine dining, however, Buffalo Gal rivals restaurants in much larger cities! Such a great find in a beautiful... More

This was our first time visiting this area, and we wanted a good place to go eat. Nobody could tell us anything, but I remembered seeing this place when we came into town. Not at all what we expected at all. It was one of the best meals we have had. It had beautiful presentation, lots of flavor, and very... More
