We stopped for breakfast and all three of us were thrilled with our meals. The omelets, mimossa's and coffee were all fresh, delicious and tasty. Combined with excellent service made for a great way to start a day.

If you are a hamburger lover you must come in for dinner and try one of their stupendous burger creations We have been here many times for breakfast which it it's own right has the best gourmet options you can find in whitefish. We come here over and over again for any of their meals – breakfast lunch and dinner

People rave about the Buffalo but it's popularity is because it is a local landmark. It's been around forever. Food and service are average at best. I have not met the owners but hear wonderful things about them.

Restaurant location is great, and is easily accessible in downtown Whitefish. The staff and service are good and friendly. The food is also good. Good value.

We love the Buffalo for breakfast and lunch. If it is Huckelberry season be sure to order the Huckelberry pancakes! When ordering bacon, request Kansas City Bacon for a special treat. For lunch we like the BLT, the Ruben, or the Burger. Really everything is consistently very good.

We had a group of 10, stopped in for dinner. No problem getting a seat although we did call ahead. They had something for everyone, great beer selection, and the beef stroganoff was on point. Service was top notch also.

Had dinner here with my husband and 5 year old son. First let me say that the staff was very nice and very friendly and accommodating to our son. It was a family friendly atmosphere. The food wasn't bad, it just couldn't compare to the other places we ate on this trip. I had salmon which was just ok. My... More

This is hands down my absolute favorite place for breakfast in the valley! The service is always awesome even though they are always busy. They make their own sausage and it is AMAZING. If they have the green verde sauce order a side and put it on whatever you are eating, you can thank me later. It may even be... More

Cool touristy spot...service a bit lacking but good value for the buck. Plan to wait for a table during the busy season.

If it's your first time or your thinking about visiting Montana. I would highly recommend stopping in at Buffalo Cafe. This restaurant has been a trade mark for this small ski town for years. It has stood the test of time and continues to live up to it's legacy. With it's attentive and affectionate staff the Buffalo makes you feel... More
