Turned out nicer than expected

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.

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 Decor is out of date and sad.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

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

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.
