A group of us decided to do a Sunday brunch. They only serve breakfast on Sundays. We did have reservations. Staff was very friendly and accommodating. They didn't do separate checks unless you had cash. I think there were 10 of us. Most of us...started off with mimosas, they have a variety of flavors. They also have several kinds of Bloody Mary's as well as other alcoholic beverages. The drinks were all very good. Several of us got Benny's-I got the eggs florentine. It was delicious. Eggs benedict, crabby benny the meat lovers and vegetarian omelettes were all very good. We would definitely come back.More

The Howling Rooster is a Hidden Gem! We started with a bottle of Beaujolais and aracini balls...so good. While listening to some rhythm and blues while I enjoyed this perfect Bolognese and my husband had the jambalaya which had some incredible Smokey flavors. We finished...with a lemon almond Italian cream pie! Perfect date night!More

The Howling Rooster is a tucked away in Amherst but a must visit. The server Lisa was amazing! The food is good too! I chose the stir fry and it was too salty for me and Lisa right away grabbed the menu for me and...I ended up with an excellent mahi mahi sandwich. The coleslaw is delicious too! It’s a must visit.More

Awesome breakfast menu, lots to choose from including classic breakfast foods, restaurant specials, and extensive bar menu. This place was packed for a Sunday brunch. We were lucky to get a table but even with the busy crowd service was still great. We ordered it...all: pancakes French toast breakfast bowls potato cakes bacon and mimosas…large plates and we left very satisfied!More

My Sister and I went to Lunch last week, but couldn’t think of somewhere we hadn’t been. My husband suggested The Howling Rooster in Kenmore, NY. We followed his suggestion. I was surprised that the Restaurant wasn’t that far away and I hadn’t heard about...it. It was TERRIFIC! Our Server Monica was very helpful. The fare was Breakfast Items, full Lunch Menu, Dinners and DESSERT. I opted for Breakfast and had the best Blueberry Pancakes I’ve ever had! My sister had an awesome omelette. This is my kind of Restaurant! I was too full for dessert, so I ordered Chocolate Cake to go! The prices were very reasonable. Now that I am aware of the Howling Rooster Restaurant, I will be a frequent diner there!More

I have been visiting here a few times. The food is always good and service is excellent. There is a varied menu with a huge selection of breakfast or lunch/ dinner options.. They are only open until 3:00 pm. I was there New Year’s Eve...day with some family from Texas. We all had different choices, and my son in law enjoyed his chicken and waffles. The wait staff was excellent even though we were there a little after closing time. The difficult part is choosing what to order due to the extensive menu and specials! I will indeed be going back. Side note. We had my granddaughter with autism with us. She choose not to sit in her chair except while eating. She sat I’m the chair in the front of restaurant. No one seemed bother by her actions as she is very quiet.More

Most of my reviews are positive ... However if you want an below average breakfast with subpar service then I would recommend the Howling Rooster. Server was absent and I actually had to go find her in the back and disturb her deep conversation with...the other servers in the back to pay my bill. Cold Pancakes and overdone bacon did not help the overall experience Bottom Line: TOO many great places in Buffalo to waste your time and money hereMore

I want to preface this with the fact that I never write scathing reviews, unless they''re well earned. Be warned. I went to this restaurant for a pleasant Saturday night dinner. What we got was a band that was playing at three times the volume...that was acceptable for the size venue, to the point that conversation was literally out of the question, and the servers struggled to take our order. The menu would indicate as something like gourmet fare, but this place needs to decide if they're going to a concert venue the hearing impaired, or a fine restaurant. I ordered the Sirloin steak, which was supposed to Angus. What I received was a raw piece of meat that I wouldn't have served to my dog, I mean it was COLD raw. They attempted to re-fire it but when it came back not a minute later, it was still raw, and cold in the center. Meanwhile my wife completed her meal. I ordered a sandwich to go, I mean they couldn't mess that up, right? DON'T BOTHER GOING HERE!!!More

We stopped for local fare and it was truly amazing g. The menu is quite varied and extensive for a small breakfast/lunch spot. The server was wonderfully happy and helpful in answering questions. Though we arrived during the last hour we wer not rushed. The...hot pretzel bites & cheese sauce were terrific. Swiss cheese was readily substituted at our request on the grilled tuna melt. And I've never seen Buffalo chicken wing soup, which was amazing! Each item came out hot, crisp and gooey as anticipated. Just wish I was in town longer to return try other items!More

The coffee is delicious and so were the potato pancakes which came with 2 eggs! My husband enjoyed his "breakfast smash" which was a burger with bacon and jam and a side of homefries. The service was excellent and the lunch and dinner menu made...us want to come back again later in the day. Lots of seating and parking in a lot and on the street. It was very busy!!More
