Buffalo Burger

So, when in Jamestown, home of the Buffalo Museum, we decided to try a buffalo burger. The grill is upstairs, and a little creepy if the store on the first floor is closed. It isn't fancy, but provides a decent burger and fry basket for a good price. Our waitress was attentive and friendly. We... read more

Although they are typically short staffed, there's a reason. The food here is excellent and the prices are very reasonable. Some might say they could use an update on the decor, but I like it just the way it is.

This is a good restaurant with reasonable prices and a nice group of neighborhood cowboys and cowgirls that frequent the place.

This restaurant was recommended by the desk clerk at our hotel, so we gave it a try. I would never have stopped here by just driving by. It is very rustic. What this restaurant did have was buffalo and elk burgers for about $5 each. At that price it easy to order and try for the first time. We found... More

As my sister-in-law said, who usually dines in fine restaurants, "this place has so little ambience, it actually has a positive frontier atmosphere." We all loved our burgers and fries. The server was adequate, even though she was more interested in chatting-up a guy at the bar. This place is a must.

This place is off the beaten path and not much to look at from the outside. But, the food is very good and a great bargain! Service is quick and staff is very competent. Not a huge menu selection which you would expect for a small town. The fact that there were a large number of locals for dinner tells... More

From the outside, you cannot tell if this is a gift shop or a working (and open) restaurant. The entry way is a steep set of stairs to the restaurant upstairs and it is your average bar with sports posters and sports on the television sets. But, the employees are friendly and the food is surprisingly good. Steak, chicken and... More

This is a restaurant located just outside the entrance of the Frontier Village. You have to walk a flight of stairs to the restaurant level. he restaurant largely serves steak and burgers. I had the buffalo filet which was interesting to taste. The salads are nothing special with dressing from a foil pouch. The beers were local and good.

Rustic. Food is better than fair. Small menu but plenty of choices for all. Steak,Chicken,Fish,Shrimp or Ribs. Price is good for the amount of food you get. You have to climb the stairs to eat here as it has no elevator.
