A good meal after a long day!

Our food was excellent! Yes, it is dark, it is an old building. But, it is a small town and new builds are not common. The atmosphere was "local", the food small town and good. The salad bar was surprisingly good and the soup was excellent. Four of us had different meals and all were pleased. Would... read more

Everything in this sleepy town was closed. I ha a so-so potato soup. Companion tried a steak. It was cattle country right? We ate and are sustained. Wait staff was wonderful. It's passable if you need to eat. I'd prefer a picnic.

This would be a 4 rating if I had not ordered the steak, its just not their strength. It was cooked fine but not a great cut of meat. For ~$11 I could have had just all you can eat soup and salad bar and been totally happy. The beef soup was really good and the owner makes the soup... More

WOW! Who'd have ever guessed it. The place is kind of run down and basic in every sense of the word. However, they keep it quite clean, the service was terrific and quite friendly. I don't know if it was a fluke or if I was just lucky or what, but I had the best steak of my life here.... More

Was recommended this place by local hotel, we had been driving most of the day and was tired and hungry. First of all the food was very good, a little pricey though. There was an elderly woman there who was very rude to us from the start, and then it continued throughout the entire visit. We would have left if... More

The Buffalo Restaurant was recommended to us by our hotel staff.. Please don't listen to your hotel staff! Decor is out of date and sad. The food was disgusting. My parents order the fish sandwich which was a square piece of fish on a bun... McDonald's has a better fish sandwich. I ordered the buffalo burger. It was a thin... More

We can't complain about the food at all. It's basic but good for the value. Service very good, all the help were friendly. Homemade soup and decent salad bar. Worth going.

This place is a mixed bag. First the good stuff. The potato soup I had was outstanding and obviously homemade. I went back for seconds. And my girlfriend's hamburger was delicious and cooked just the way she ordered. So if you just judge the place on the food, it is very good. The service was fine. Now for the bad... More

Not much of a choice in Murdo, so we ended up at Buffalo. We were fine with the decor, it was the food that's a problem. My husband got the chicken fried steak and I got the "cod". My fish was just a mass produced frozen fish fillet that wasn't cooked all the way. My husband's gravy tasted just like... More

We stopped for supper after travelling all day. We arrived after nine and was still greeted with a smile and an up date on what was available for specials. That evening they served prime rib but the waitress let us know by this time of evening it was well done. There were several of us in our party so we... More
