“Excellent food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2014

I loved the pork medallions, but I understand the steak is also excellent. Good wine selection and friendly service.

“Great bar!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2014

The White Buffalo was a great place to,have a drink and relax in a lovely courtyard. The indoor section is a little small, so going while the weather is nice works well with the courtyard.

“Great bar and restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2014

We chose to eat all three evenings at the Gage Hotel's restaurant named the White Buffalo bar. The food was excellent. We had the roast pork, salmon, enchiladas, and a large salad with scallops. A great place to eat whether you are stay at Eve's Garden or the hotel or just passing through.

“Not to be missed”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2014

This small bar is a must visit in Marathon. The room is dominated by a very large and very white buffalo head mounted between the entrance and the bar. According to the locals, the buffalo was authenticated as a very rare, true white buffalo by a tribe of Wyoming Indians that came to the hotel and bar about 50-60 years ago. As the bar area is quite small, with a few small tables and a fireplace, you will be drawn into conversations with other patrons...some staying at the hotel from all over the world, others from the local community. Makes for some interesting discussions that you don't want to miss. Oh, by the way, the drinks were very good as well.
