We've been to the Buffalo Mountain Lodge about 8 times, and as of lately the restaurant experience has slid faster than an avalanche.
It took 1 hour 15 minutes in a not so crowded restaurant to get served a horrendous Arctic Char at $33. The potatoes were dry as well. My duck breast was quite nice I must say, but an hour and 15 minutes late - The Elk Carpaccio was amazing (if you get filled up on micro shavings) they seemed to be cutting back on that too. I can give up a couple of cost saving issues, but NOT food quality.
The outdoor big stainless steel hot-tub saved the evening. The hostess offered to exchange my girlfriend’s meal when it finally arrived. We were too famished to accept another long wait.
Don't expect your charge card to be settled at the table if you booked Expedia or another site, I got a nice letter telling me that AFTER we split the bill and paid by wireless billing at the restaurant that my room booking card was to be charged for $115 for the entire meal. We had both paid by credit card split down the middle but because we somehow used Expedia I was charged for the entire meal in the nice letter.
Skip this place if you want to eat for value and I used to love this place for a great dining experience. Randall Nelson January 2013
