The food was decent and at a reasonable price. What I really liked was the staff. They were very friendly and wanted to get to know you and your family, if only for a short time. They were very accommodating!

Really good food, prices are good as well. Very busy place but only had to wait 15 minutes for a table. Something for everyone in the menu.

I am so glad that we chose to eat dinner here on our last night in Whitefish. It is a busy, welcoming restaurant that serves great American food and an amazing array of Montana microbrews on draft. They have a great selection of burgers, plus steaks, seafood and specials. Our burgers were just outstanding, and portions very generous. For dessert... More

Back in Whitefish again, en route to Kalispell. As usual we stopped first here for brunch. This time we decided to try their pie breakfasts. Eggs, sausage, onions, all on top of their amazing hash browns, then topped with cheese. Was so good. Of course, numerous cups of the great coffee. Being Sunday it was busy, but we only had... More

Great service and great food. I had the shrimp cakes eggs Benedict. They were delicious. The folk at the table next to us had the Huckleberry Pancake breakfast and raved about how good they were. Honestly though, everything I saw coming out of the kitchen looked great, so I doubt you could make a bad choice.

The Buffalo Cafe is a modestly decorated restaurant with tasty salads and sandwiches. Portions are generous and service is attentive. On one visit we arrived thirty minutes before they closed lunch service, but they did not rush us and we enjoyed a leisurely visit with family while we ate. Nice folks at the Buffalo Cafe.

8 people got seated within 5 minutes. the wait staff is prompt, friendly and helpful with the menu. ALL food was top shelf, scratch prepared and served hot. Sausage was awesome, oatmeal was the best. No disappointments here.

Severs were friendly and food was excellent. I had the best fish tacos I have ever eaten. My entire family enjoyed their food, which doesn't always happen.

Very reasonable prices. Fast service, friendly waitress. Mostly comfort food-- really big burgers, some southwest choices. Large portions, ladies could only finish one-half burger. Right downtown so parking can be issue.
