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

I was expecting mediocre food since this is quite a tourist spot. I was wrong! I had the buffalo ravioli and it was delicious. The pasta was homemade and the sauce was tasty. My husband said his beef ribeye was the best steak he had had in a long time. Meals include soup or salad. Service was great too! We... More

On an overnight stay in Buffalo, wwe wanted a good hearty meal. Preferably a steak. Since we were in Wyoming, we figured we would get a great steak. We both ordered the $30 ribeyes - medium. After a looong wait (there was a large party of about 30 people in another room), we got our meal. My steak was ok,... 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
