Great food & drink and staff is amazing! Nice place for a nite cap to relax before turning in. The desserts are wonderful and wine list is wonderful. Mary and the staff are amazing and will do everything they can to accommodate special requests. Thanks for a great time!

One reviewer said they took one look at the exterior and thought it was a dive and left. What a shame. They probably also judge books by their covers. What a shame. That poor soul missed out on a great experience. I stayed at the Vagabond Lodge next door. What a fortuitous event. The first night, I stopped in and... More

Simple food menu with a variety of salads and other entrees that pair well with the fairly extensive wine offering. In restaurant wine store allows diners to pay a reasonable corkage fee for wine bought there.

The food here is very delectable!!! Highly recommend the adult grilled cheese, yummy!!! The stuffed jalapeños are a great starter. The staff is very friendly, felt like we had been patrons for years.

We arrived late right at closing, they were more than willing to stay after hours and serve us, and what a surprise the food was some of the best we've ever had the conservation was great! It is quite refreshing to find a place that enjoys serving and helping people on there way, hopefully we will get to spend more... More

Thursday night music night, great music, good food, great company. Sometimes it's packed so one is iced out from attending. Mary is great, the staff is great.

We stayed at the Vagabond Lodge recently and went to the White Buffalo for dinner one night. It is a neat little wine bistro with wine tastings (on Thurs) plus a full menu. We loved our appetizers which were stuff jalapenos and dates. Our dinner tasted good. Unfortunately, one of our party ordered chicken added to their salad. The chicken... More

Had an eggplant/squash ragout with smoked mozzarella and corn polenta which was out of this world for a vegetarian - parmesan shaved on top. Husband had the cobb salad which had real bacon, high quality blue chees, and lettuce/tomatoes from the local farmer's market. Everything was made fresh to order and all was delicious. We loved the quality of the... More

We ate here because it was next to the Vagabond Lodge which we really liked. We had the BLT and soup and salad which both were very good. The service was great and they have a very nice wine list. We would go back if in the area.

I wouldn't go out of my way for this place. I ate here due to the proximity to the Vagabond Lodge, which is where I was staying. I had the lasagna, which I thought was fairly bland. It also took 30 minutes to prepare. The waitress didn't seem to know much about what was on the menu. When I asked... More

Your comments were taken to heart! We appreciate the feedback because it helps us so much to improve our services. We have now switched to our summer menu and the lasagna has been replaced by savory meatballs and fresh pasta. It has been a hit! Time from order to table is much faster and we are still using our beef... More
