Good Lunch Spot in a Remote Area

I wasn't well prepared for my trip into the Cascades and got really hungry by the end of the day. I was satisfied with my meal at Buffalo Run. I really can't complain about cost when there is so little else around and the place is a bit remote. The staff was friendly and attentive, and I was... read more

serious statement, but this place gave me the runs! classic stay away symptoms after burger and rude staff to boot. this place must only stay open because of first time, run through tourist traffic. "Buffalo Run Away From It!!!"

I'm confused! What gave you the runs? Was it the burger or the rude staff? What kind of burger did you have? Did you have the runs for over a month as it took you that long to write your ridiculous review? More

Just so you know, there isn't much to choose from in Marblemount! Given the fact that there is a limited season here, this place is not bad. It has average food, a good beer selection and an interesting music selection playing much too loudly! The owner is a rather gruff looking man with a feisty attitude, so I would try... More

We enjoyed our choices for lunch. It is a great restaurant, uniquely decorated, with friendly service. Outdoor seating is very nice although we could not enjoy it as it was raining.

We wanted a quick lunch on a beautiful day, not to be wasted. We waited 30 minutes before getting a menu, then a further 45 minutes for a simple hamburger and a bowl of soup. The hamburger had obviously been sitting for a long time because it was dry and stone cold. There are other places in town; go there.

Thank You for the exaggerated review! If you waited 30 minutes for a menu, you should have left 20 minutes earlier Did you wait to be seated as the sign says, or did you feel the sign didn't apply to you? When the waitress seats you she has the menu in her hand and you receive it as soon as... More

Buffalo Run is a family dining restaurant in Marblemount on the rainy side of the North Cascades Highway. What sets them apart from other diners are the variety of meats available on the menu camel, kangaroo, buffalo, goat, alligator, venison, wild boar, lamb and mutton are all featured on the menu in addition to the animals we are more accustomed...

I'm not sure what your complaint is! Do you know how much beef is in a Whopper? The reason your Wild Boar seemed to taste like pork, is that it is a wild pig! You forgot to mention how many beers you had! More

Based on my experience in gateway communities outside national parks, I had low expectations for dining establishments. I was pleasantly surprised at the Buffalo Run. High quality, fresh food, a great beer selection, and friendly service brought my wife and I here each of the three nights we stayed in Marblemount.
