We ate at the Buffalo Restaurant for supper while staying in Murdo one night. The food was very good and the service was outstanding. I had the fantail shrimp ($17) and salad bar and both were very good. My cottage fries weren't quite done, but it was fine to leave a few on my plate as we were pretty full... More

The prime rib special was excellent, and the cod was good. The salad bar had many choices, and if we had seen it first, it probably would have been all we would have ordered. Our waitress was the granddaughter of the owner and was very attentive. The meal came with ice cream as a topper, which was a nice addition.... More

I have used Trip Advisor often, especially during the 10,000 mile cross country trip that we just completed, and have realized that the reviews can be completely misleading. That is why I am posting this honest review of the Buffalo Restaurant & Bar for people who look to Trip Advisor for good advice. The reviews entitled "Yum!", "Dinner was great",... More

Seems to be a place for the local folks to go as it was full when we went there. Good food, nice restaurant, easy to access location. If you find yourself in the tiny town of Murdo, SD you will find this a really good place to eat.

We have stopped in Murdo a couple times traveliing through town. More and more it is rare to find a privately owned eating establishment that makes something other than prepared or deep fried foods. Well Buffallo does. It is not a fancy place at all, but that is one of the nice qualities and you don't pay fancy prices either.... More

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.
