My wife and I stumbled into The Buffalo Bar on our last night in W Yellowstone. If we had come here earlier in the trip I doubt we would have gone elsewhere. Incredible atmosphere, it seemed like everyone in town was here. The walls were...More

Food was great, good beverage selection, and friendly staff. I would highly recommend the pork wings and the buffalo meatloaf. Also a great place to watch sporting events due to the multiple TVs. I would definitely recommend to anyone visiting the West Yellowstone area.

I recently ate here during my first trip to Yellowstone in August 2017. This bar is conveniently located near the Kelly Inn where we were staying. We were warmly greeted when we arrived and our waitress made us feel right at home. We ordered a...More
