We found this restaurant on Trip Advisor and decided to give it a try. First of all the decor totally rocks and makes you fill you are really in the wild, Wild West! Great big bar area and there are stuffed animals everywhere, including an awesome buffalo that looks like he is jumping in the air. You can even try... More

The Buffalo Bar was recommended by the hotel staff as a good place for supper. Interesting decor complete with a well preserved buffalo in the bar area. Lively croud, excellent waiter, good food and reasonably priced. They also have a nice selection of micro brews available. Try it when you visit the area.

Usually very critical (!) but tonight had the pulled pork sandwich/pico de gallo/huckleberry BBQ sauce/aioli ... Outstanding!! Mashed potatoes/brown gravy was as good as I make at home and wife had buffalo chili. Great meal and service!

We went to The Buffalo after reading all the reviews. First it took ages to have the food, close to one hour which is unexplainable in a pub. It was a busy night ok, but at least serve chips or something. Food was terrible, i had mac and cheese which seemed the one you buy at the super market. My... More

We came here on a Monday night around 7:00pm and were seated immediately. Our waiter was very friendly and the food was good. The only thing is that they didn't have milk and were out of some of the beers, but other than that, it was a good experience. I would go here again.

I ordered the half order of ribs. Tasted like they had been cooked all day and were fork tender. Ate so much I felt bad but worth it

Went on a recommendation from a local. The Buffalo and the chicken fried steak sandwich were great! Brian, our server was very knowledgeable about the menu and the bar itself. The beer batter onion rings should not be missed. Also, don't forget to try the local Huckleberry Lemonade! The atmosphere of a hunting cabin with taxidermy decorations was very tastefully... More

Fun place just off the main strip. Great bar food. The nachos were fantastic. Our son loved the wings (the huckleberry glaze was delicious). My husband enjoyed the sausage. Several TV's so you have an option of several sporting events to watch. Overall a great place.

Thank MWSki
