We wanted a fun bar that served good food when we left our kids "alone" to head into town for a grownup dinner and to have big-person conversations. Besides, they hate watching us drink, laugh and we are so boring... Bumping Buffalo was terrific. We all had wine and/or beers with dinners. Enjoyed... read more

We have eaten here on several occasions and have always been greeted with genuine courtesy. The meal is served in a very reasonable time frame from when you order it. I certainly enjoy the buffalo burgers. You also don't feel rushed to finish and leave. The ambiance is very accommodating to the past century with exposed brick and a 120... More

If you've ever seen the movie "When Harry Met Sally" you know how some noises are best left to the bedroom. I was amazed by the food and service of this fine establishment, please know that before I continue.... Ok, with that being said, it was very disturbing and especially since I am a devout christian, to hear the other... More

BB had a nice beer selection and bar menu. We like bar food, and as bar food goes it was very nice. The 1800's back bar is beautiful. Located in Hill City, you can walk around the nice downtown and have a sip and a bite. They were a little bit understaffed the day we visited, but the staff was... More

I ate twice here in a weekend - once for lunch and once for dinner. Let's first be clear that I visited in October - when half of the restaurants in Hill City are closed for the season - and then one day was a Sunday, so another few were closed. Needless to say, options were limited without heading to... More

Food was average to a little above average. Service people were very nice but the service was poor. Took about 10+ minutes for anyone to come to our table and it wasn't that busy. It's a bar, though, so it is what it is.

Lots of pies. The cuisine was not exotic but good proportions and flavorful. In spite of the name it is family friendly.

Wne came here the last evening before they closed for winterseason.Therefor, the choise was limited, we decided to take the rib-eye steach on the grill and the meat was really good and soft.The service of the waiter was very friendly.The interior is very warm with Buffalo-heads and brown interior.Very good price-quality.
