We had dinner here on Sept. 15. Our food was tasty and service was prompt. The servings were large and I packed half my meal in a take out container. We walked to the front door and looked at one of the old photographs on the front wall. It was then that I realized I left my container on the... More

Big menu with lots of specials. I figure if the locals eat here it must be as great as I think it is. Comfy atmosphere. Nice staff.

This restaurant was recommended several times for breakfast. It didn't disappoint. The service started off a little slow but once we finally got to order things went better. The food was very good. It felt like the ingredients used were very fresh. Next time I'm in the area I would go back. I had the Greek omelet and my husband... More

I ordered 3 breakfast to go. Food quality was top shelf and fresh. Try the Kansas bacon it was lean and the portions were large. The hash browns were home made. Thanks for a great breakfast. I will be back next Saturday.

We spent three days in Whitefish, MT on a visit to Glacier National Park. Several places had been recommended to us for breakfast but we just happened up the Buffalo Cafe one morning so decided to try it since there was a waiting line of customers. We were not disappointed. Our hostess moved people through quickly so even though there... More

I had fish and chips here and it was very good. My wife had a grilled chicken sandwich, also good. I was dissapointed a place called the Buffalo Cafe in Montana did not have a buffalo burger, it is very common on menus out west, but oh well. Still good food and I would recommend.

We had lunch here on the advice of locals, and were very glad we did. My burger was perfect, the side salad better than it had to be, friendly service.

We had breakfast here based on the reviews from TA. It was above average. I thought it would be a bit better from the reviews. Omelets were good, hash browns were cooked but not crispy, kinda soggy in fact. My ham steak was a bit fatty but tasty. I'm 50/50 whether I'd recommend it.

This is a fun place frequented by the locals in Whitefish. I usually go for breakfast, and it is always good. It is one of those places that provides local color, good food, and a friendly ambiance. If you are in Whitefish, give it a go.
