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

After dining out at a different restaurant each night to celebrate no kids for a week, Buffalo Gal was a no brainer. In fact, we almost put it on our list for two of the nights. To sum it all up, we have decided that this establishment is The Best Food a person can get up in the McCall, Donnelly,... More

I hate to eat spaghetti and meatballs out, but I have to here. Delicious! I can honestly say I have eaten everything on the menu and have never been disappointed. I recommend the steamed clams, chana masala, polenta fries. And ANY dessert, with french press.It really is global comfort food.

On the recommendation of our local host our group of 9 visited Buffalo Gal on Sunday evening. Long story short we were delighted in all respects! The hostess and staff were friendly and efficient but th!e real prize was the food! All of us were ecstatic with our selections! Great experience all around!

There were nine of us in our party, four local and five from the east coast. The restaurant was highly recommended by the locals and now I know why. Everyone's dinner was cooked to perfection. No one had a negative comment on service or food. The menu had a wide variety of offerings, both beverage and food menus. I will... More

Looking for a unique dining experience in the McCall area led us to a short drive to Donnelly and the Buffalo Gal. Great mussels for an appetizer. Spinach salad was huge and delicious. The Seasonal Vegetable Napoleon was a vegetarians delight. Finished the evening with a chocolate molten cake.... Yummmm. Not a extensive wine list but the food and daily... More
