Excellent Soup

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... read 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

Stopped in for a supper after a long days travel! Friendly staff, good food. I would eat here again. Nothing fancy, but it does the job well!

The service was great and so was the food, The salad bar had several salads as well as the typical choices to go with lettuce and a delicious vegetable soup. You could definitely tell you were in a small town as the cook kept singing and coming out into the restaurant only to be chased back into the kitchen by... More

Service was good and the burgers were tasty. This was our second stop here so it must be OK although there isn't a lot of choices in Murdo in the off-season.

The restaurant had some interesting western artifacts, but tavern food. The burger was decent; the fish and chips...not so much. Salad from a bag with prepackaged serving sized dressing. Service was surprisingly efficient considering only one waitress and many diners.

We rolled into Murdo late and got the the restaurant around 9:45pom and kitchen closed at 10pm. The staff were very friendly and allowed us to take our time while ordering. We chose the fish fry and salad bar. Both were delicious! Other reviewers stated that the place was dated and dark. My partner and I liked the atmosphere and... More

It's a little dark and old timey, with a flair of cowboy bar and eatery thrown in. Food was OK, salad bowl miniscule, soup really good, prices fairly reasonable, choices adequate. Murdo is not a metropolis; options are limited....

Our waitress was very friendly and the service was good, but the food and decor were another story. I do agree with a previous reviewer that said the atmosphere leaves a bit to be desired. So did the food and wine. I started with a cup of soup suggested by the waitress and the soup was very good, but the... More
