Best eats in the Valley! This is a MUST DO culinary delight!

The Buffalo Gal offers a diverse menu with a variety of flavor profiles. My favorite experience is eating outside at the picnic tables and picking food up from the window. This is a nice walk-up experience for gourmet food. It is also acceptable to sit with strangers in the outside dinning area... read more

I extended our visit to the area to do 3 things. Take the chair to the top of Brundage( this time of year they only run Th-Sun😟), visit the Gold Fork Hot Springs( husband👎) and go to Buffalo Gal . Batting .333 Our dinner made the extra day worth it. We enjoyed a glass of wine on the patio prior... More

Dinner for four. Nice wine list and appetiErs are plentiful. We had polenta fries with rosemary. Gnocchi was very good, as was chicken pasta. Burger was reported to be just ok, as were chicken croquettes. Dessert menu looked good, but we didn't partake. Outside seating and take out window too. Probably the best place in town for real food.

Buffalo Gal in Donnelly, Idaho has an eclectic mix of excellent food. My husband had a Chana curry special, loaded with chickpeas and veggies. He also had the Japanese steak bites. I had the steamed clams in white wine sauce and spring rolls. Amazingly fresh food in a tiny town. Service was very good, attentive but not clingy. Very small... More

Ambiance: Plain & simple. Seating is comfortable, clean, and the dining room is well lit. You can also choose to eat outside, but it's a little dusty and noisy there. We went on a Saturday night, and made reservations, I recommend that. Staff. Very good. Everyone is friendly and straightforward, very much like a family place to eat, easy to... More

You will need reservations or call for take-out at the Buffalo Gal. You will not believe the quality of food at this little restaurant. It is truly the best. Staring with their Spring Rolls and homemade hummus to die for. I usually bug a pint up hummus to take home. My favorite dish is the Vegetable Napoleon with gnocchi. I've... More

New menu every week. Very good chef. International as well as American. Upper end food, but inside is basic.

We were driving through this small town looking for a place to meet for dinner and we settled on the Buffalo Gal. What a great decision. Mushroom chorizo app was full on garlic awesomeness. The smoked chicken pasta was just spicy enough and full of smoky flavor. Vegetarian dish was also great and flavorful according to the wife. Also try... More

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
