We were excited to try Buff's Pub after great reviews as well as a recommendation from a friend. Although my two companions had really good burgers, my Spicy Teriyaki wings, although spicy, we're not the least bit teriyaki. For a place that has award winning wings, this was a huge let down. I've had better wings so many other places.... More

This is one of those places that you hear about all the time. People just live it here. It's nothing fancy for sure but has an awesome atmosphere and great food plus cold beer and friendly wait staff. If you like wings and beer and you don't try this place you are doing a disservice to yourself.

Love the wings here! Service is good and attentive! Sandwiches are Delish too! Small yet still cozy... Bring cash they don't take credit cards.. There's a Bank of America next door though ... Yummm!

We stayed at the Crowne Plaza, while this hotel is not great the food at Buff's helped. We had a great Steak Tip salad with pears, one of the best meals we had the whole trip. Looks are deceiving...don't be steered away! We also had fried pickles, they were spicy and flavorful!I had the hamburger, which was great. Sweet potato... More

Loved Buffs for years. Most gush about the wings. I must rave about the French Onion soup. Homemade and never a disappointment. When I am feeling a bit down, this soup is my medicine. Friendly staff and always comforting. Merci Beaucoup Buffs.

I came here on a Thursday night around 6 pm. There is street parking, and a metered lot around the corner from this place. There was a work function there at the time so it was very crowded. Since I was in a large group we were divided into two booths next to each other and crammed 5-6 people in... More

My wife and I use to love going to Buff's for Honey Hot Wings and Loaded Fries. We would fast the day of going to Buff's just so we could pig out! Ever since we moved from Watertown to the Midwest, we have been searching for a Buff's caliber wing place. We are yet to find one! I really miss... More

Yes, everyone is right about the chicken wings - fantastic. We had the buffalo ones, and our friends had the hotter teriyaki ones. We were all happy with our choices. We also had beefburger, which wasn't so exciting - found that quite bland and ordinary. But very good value, and a lively atmosphere. We almost walked out when we first... More

The food makes this place very good. This is a real neighborhood bar. We were met at the door by a really pleasant guy who showed us an open two top. Place was packed with people who knew each other, having a good time. It was hard to get the waitress' attention, she was busy having fun with the regulars.... More

Friendly service, excellent wine selection and out of this world pizza. Other Italian dishes were very good as well.
