Murdo is a working mans bar and the restaurants are meat and potatos places. This place has a very nice salad bar and large portions. The staff is very friendly.

Traveling through town on our way west. The waitress went out of her way to give us great service! Shrimp special was delicious and the homemade soup was so good I went back for seconds.

After my wife and I checked into the Range Country Inn we drove a couple of blocks to the Buffalo Restaurant and Bar. On entering we were greeted by Linda who was behind the bar and three locals who introduced themselves and suggested we sit and join them in a drink,"We are all friends here" was the watchword of this...

My 89-year-old dad and I were on a 5,000 road trip last month. We drove across South Dakota and stayed a night in Murdo. As a small town, there weren't many options for restaurants; the clerk at our hotel recommended Buffalo Restaurant & Bar. There was only one waitress working and she was working hard. The place wasn't too busy,... More

My husband and I were in Murdo and, having had a bad experience last time we were there at Rusty Spur, decided to give this place a try (the good reviews definitely helped) - we were glad we did! We both had the special that night, whiskey marinated steak. Yum. They have a really great salad bar too, everything was... More

This restaurant has very good food. We had the Fried Chicken dinners with the salad bar. Salad bar was also very good. Since this is a small town the prices are a bit high. $16+ seemed high for a 4 piece chicken dinner. An ice cream dessert comes with the dinner.

This does not look on the outside like the kind of place I would ever visit, but we read great reviews on Trip Advisor, and there were not many options. I am so glad we tried Buffalo Restaurant. The service was excellent, the restaurant was extremely clean with pleasing decor, the food was great, and the patrons were fun and... More

Came in late. Close to hotel. Had a very good steak sandwich that was more like a steak dinner. Steak would never fit into 2 pieces of toast. Wish I would have known I could have had hash browns instead of french fries. The hash browns looked amazing on another persons plate. Waitress was very nice and came often.Would eat... More

I am very glad that I decided to eat here. The ground buffalo was superb and a great salad and potato too. The reviews that are critical of the dated premisis are missing the point of great food and excellent service. A fancy place it is not but that's OK! I very rarely give out 5 stars but this place...
