Place is really nice inside, outside it don't look like much. The staff was friendly and great. Had the cheese balls with ranch, and the tenderloin with fries. The cheese balls where perfectly cooked, cripy outside, warm and gooey inside. Tenderloin was the same, cooked perfect, breading was great, not soggy. I asked for pickles, they gave me plenty. Fries where good, they where lightly seasoned, I'm not a seasoned fry fan, I like plain. But they where good. Waitress was excellent, kept my soda full, and was always busy. The ceiling had tiles from businesses in the area, groups of friends, and memorial ones too. They seem to keep them up as a few where 10-20 yrs old. I thought that was really cool

Had lunch with our daughter and friends on a weekday at The Buffalo. I believe Amy was the name of our server & bar tender, she was attentive and did a great job keeping the beverages coming! The Cherry limeade was a refreshing drink which I enjoyed! The naked wings were on point with the sweet chili sauce on the side. The tacos were huge & hubs really liked his fire burger. The Buffalo is in a convenient location and the food & drinks are good too! The have daily specials as well.

We picked a spot that was in the middle of where we all lived and decided on the Buffalo Tavern. The breaded tenderloin was the choice of 4 and a burger and nachos for the other two. My wife and I split on with fries and was plenty to eat. The tenderloin was good as were the fries. The burger was good as well but the nachos was more of a salad with very few chips. Over all we enjoyed this old neighborhood bar and had a nice lunch.

You have a reputation for good steaks, but when I got what I ordered as well done, it came out quite rare. Very red on the inside. Not bad around the corners, but the inside was just bloody. I realize I could have sent it back, but I always get some angst about doing that. I think what I found very disturbing is from where I sat, I could glance back into the kitchen area and you have a back door there that is so filthy it looks more like a muddy outside dog door. It's a great to be "a hole in the wall with good food" which is kind of what you're like, but you need to be clean. This place is dingy and it really looks dirty back toward that kitchen. I don't know that we'll eat here again. I'm sorry to give it this kind of a review.

My child who has allergies recently ate with the soccer team at The Buffalo Tavern. I could not find an allergen menu, so I contacted the restaurant directly via email the night before and again with a follow-up question the next day. The manager promptly responded to my repeated questions and helped us narrow down our choices. Wish there were a few more dairy-free, egg-free options but VERY GRATEFUL for the assistance.

Ordered a 6 pc chicken bites and a Cheesesteak sandwich. All were cold. Supposed to be ready at 5:45 and I got there at 5:30 and it was ready and sitting out. Got home and nuked everything. Picked up the sandwich and everything fell out of the bread and into the container. not a happy camper.

This tavern has the best pork tenderloin sandwich I’ve had! My husband and I took to heart the comments of another reviewer and decided to share one. I can’t say enough about how delicious it was. The fries were great, and the beer was cold! Would definitely stop by again if we ever travel through here again.

We ain't got much here in town but this place is definitely a nice option to have. Huge menu, quality food across the board, good drinks, great staff and it's reasonably priced. Taco Monday's are something you don't want to miss out on. The best!

The food and service were both great! Everything was reasonably priced and although we ate in, it also looked like a popular place to order takeout.

No kidding. Their tenderloin sandwich is not only huge, it's delicious and served with whatever condiments you prefer. Extensive menu options for other choices. Friendly neighborhood bar atmosphere.

The tenderloin sandwich here is great! And it would be a steal even if they charged 50% more. Assuming you can eat it all. I did.

This bar had an interesting ceiling to keep us occupied while we waited for our meals. Everything from salads, to burgers, to steak were on the menu. My only complaint was it took over 40 minutes for our orders to arrive.

We read on TripAdvisor how good this restaurant was we had to try it! Wow the tenderloin was everything people said ! It isn’t fancy at all...but the food and service were great. The sidewainders fries are worth getting. We split the sandwich and still had food to take home!

A nice town bar. The boneless wings were huge and the tenderloin was delicious. It’s big enough to split. The wait staff was also outstanding.
