If you want to get a great meal and an awesome view visit the Frontier Fort. Casual dining with great steaks.

We waited to be seated, ten minutes more for the menu, more for water. While we waited for broasted chicken (isn't it supposed to be moist inside and crispy outside?) we had time for two glasses of wine which may be the idea behind the wait. The chicken finally arrived and it was crispy all the way through. Locals filled... More

Tired establishment-2nd story restaurant. Windows dirty so you couldn't see outside and poor lighting. Fort burger and coleslaw was good. Husband ordered the steak and shrimp special. The steak was grisly and it came with three shrimp. Food prices were reasonable. Server did her job and nothing more.

I love the buffalo burgers! Other family members had prime rib and said it was excellent. Service was fast and prices are very reasonable.

Although they are typically short staffed, there's a reason. The food here is excellent and the prices are very reasonable. Some might say they could use an update on the decor, but I like it just the way it is.

This is a good restaurant with reasonable prices and a nice group of neighborhood cowboys and cowgirls that frequent the place.

So, when in Jamestown, home of the Buffalo Museum, we decided to try a buffalo burger. The grill is upstairs, and a little creepy if the store on the first floor is closed. It isn't fancy, but provides a decent burger and fry basket for a good price. Our waitress was attentive and friendly. We would return, if in the... More

This restaurant was recommended by the desk clerk at our hotel, so we gave it a try. I would never have stopped here by just driving by. It is very rustic. What this restaurant did have was buffalo and elk burgers for about $5 each. At that price it easy to order and try for the first time. We found... More

As my sister-in-law said, who usually dines in fine restaurants, "this place has so little ambience, it actually has a positive frontier atmosphere." We all loved our burgers and fries. The server was adequate, even though she was more interested in chatting-up a guy at the bar. This place is a must.
