Western Hospitality at It's Best!

We visited in May, 2015 and enjoyed Elk Tenderloin, Bison Steak, and Shrimp. Our meats were cooked to perfection and were quite tasty and tender. The friendliness of the service was remarkable and were felt welcomed as new friends. There are "private" tables in the front windows and what appeared... read more

We loved this place. The food was amazing, a nice wine list, the people were wonderful and the atmosphere was "western upscale" ... had a romantic dinner in the window table and came back the next night!

My husband and I had our anniversary dinner here, and when the hostess found this out, she seated us in "the vault" which was exactly what it sounds like, and it was amazing. Quiet, alone, beautiful old vault for what used to be a jewelry store long ago. We both had steak, and it was perfectly seasoned, perfectly cooked, and... More

Do not miss this this restaurant. It is located in the Occidental Hotel in Buffalo, Wyo. The food is beyond fabulous a gourmet's treat. The presentation is absolutely beautiful. I ordered the Pear and Gorgonzola Ravioli (listed on the kid's menu) but available in adult portions as well. I thought I had died and gone to heaven. Kudos to the... More

The atmosphere is amazing, but that is about all. We had to wait forever to be seated even though there was no one in the restaurant. The waitress seemed bored and confused every time we asked a question about the menu. The food was good, but not good enough considering the price you pay. If you want to eat at... More

The historic Occidental Hotel and Virginian Restaurant is a must see when in the area. Even if you don't eat here you have to have a look around. It's like being back in the 1800s with private dining table by the windows and curtains on each side for privacy. As well as having a ton of ambiance, the food is... More

The Virginian is very inconsistent in its food. You never know if you are going to have a good meal or a downright bad one. I hate to send things back but have had to on several occasions due to raw or undercooked, overly salted or even terribly overcooked food. The atmosphere is lovely, though. It is one of our... More
