Enjoy going here for lunch or to imbibe in an adult beverage. Relaxing atmosphere. Their smoothered burritos are the bomb!

Good bar food, great service, but the best part was the excellent selection of local Montana beers! Be sure to take your photo with the giant stuffed buffalo!

Stopped in for an after-snowmobile tour warm up. This is obviously a favorite of locals, and for good reason. Decor and ambiance were perfect for the occasion. Refreshments and appetizers were well received by the whole crew, kids included.

Stayed in West over Christmas, right across the street from the Buffalo Bar. This place is great. Don't skip the pretzel sticks, they're the best. Good sandwiches too, excellent service.

Ate there several times during our recent snowmobile vacation. Most of the patrons were snowmobilers. The large screen TVs featured extreme snowmobile hill climbing and snowmobile stunts. Kind of getting the vibe? That said, it's really a fun place. Dustin was our server last night, and was extremely attentive and friendly. The menu is very diverse. Food is excellent with... More

Food tasted great and services was great. Friendly and caring staff. Read various reviews about the Buffalo Bar and saw some recent ones about the service not being the best. Our experience was the opposite. Service was great. Servers were friendly and checked on us several times. Food was yummy. My wife wanted to try Buffalo burger and was not... More

It's like you have to stand by someones table until they finish eating - how rude... Didn't mind paying $15+ for a Bison Burger but please get a hostess or a seating plan for new customers arriving in the door! We arrived on a Friday night at 6PM. Definitely a busy time. Food was decent but pricey. My wife insisted... More
