Old favorite; new owner - hope quality stays same..

Buffleheads has been a favorite staple for us, a place we visit every year. I suspected ownership might have changed when the food was not quite as good as memory served: fettucine alfredo was runny, not creamy; med chicken dish was silly huge, generous to be sure, but uninviting looking. Salads... read more

A view of the beach from each table. The service was friendly and the place looks nice but our food left a lot to be desired. My clams and fries were hot but very soggy. My wife's fries were as well and her fish sandwich was good sized but soggy as well. My sister in law got the stuffed haddock... More

Really friendly greeter. Gave us a couple of choices when we arrived without reservations. We had a nice view. Drinks and rolls came quickly. The main courses took quite a while and the waitress was busy enough not to stop by and check on us. Everything was tasty. Wrapped halibut was good, but some of the capers were burnt. Great... More

We stopped in for lunch while site seeing lighthouses. We had a huge lobster roll, burger and toasted cheeses. The food was very good, service was good along with the atmosphere. We would recommend it and go back.

I just recently visited Buffleheads after just moving to the area, and was not impressed. Our server was extremely rude, especially after I told her I was allergic to the garnish....and the food was not as good as the reviews say it is, my food was over seasoned while my boyfriends seafood linguini Alfredo was more like soup than a...

Buffleheads is about 1500 feet from our beach house, but even if it were 10 miles away we would still be regular customers because it is consistently excellent. It's been owned and operated by a husband and wife since it opened about 20 years ago. They made Buffleheads first-rate from the day they opened and have maintained the same high... More

I dined here recently while on vacation with my family. We all enjoyed ourselves a lot. I had the fried haddock which was very good. My daughter eventually got restless and as I walked outside with her I came across the garden in which the restaurant grows their vegetables. So needless to say, Freshness is in their list of values.... More

Cozy little place with great food and friendly wait staff. If you are looking for good seafood, this is a great place to order, and the rest of the menu is great, too. Across the street from Hills Beach, with a casual beach atmosphere. This is a must visit for us every summer.
