“One of the best restaurants in Wyoming!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2013

Part of the historic Occidental Hotel (which is a cool place to visit or stay) in downtown Buffalo, the Virginian is the place that you will remember. The steaks were perfect, most of the sauces made fresh each day, the bar is like stepping back in time with live music on Thursdays. Although the food is always unbeatable, the service and ambiance are what makes this such a nice restaurant. Always a good time and a memorable experience. This place is as good as it gets!

“One of the best steaks around”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013

This restaurant was in a great setting and very hospitable. I was in a group of 11 people and we all had excellent meals.
The service was also very good with friendly knowledgeable staff.

“Absolutely beautiful Restaurant with great food! DON'T MISS IT!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2012

Next to, and owned by the Occidental Hotel (which you MUST visit), this restaurant is filled with beautiful and elegant, 19th Century antiques. They offer fine dining from romantic tables for two to banquet arrangements for ten or more. We’ve eaten there twice and loved each visit. You’ll feel like Buffalo Bill Cody, Wyatt Earp, Owen Whistler or John Wayne might walk in the door at any second. Cody and Whistler in fact did! DON’T MISS IT! FIVE STARS ALL THE WAY!

“A must in Buffalo”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2012

The Virginian is an excellent value, atmosphere is unmatched. We had a cozy table for two which had a window onto the main street in town, lace curtains, very romantic. I would not bring the kids. The food is very reasonable for fine dining. The evening special was a delicious pork chop for only $16.

“Great Service and Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2012

Our waitress and the chef went out of their way to fix things like we wanted; we are picky for medical reasons.
