We enjoyed the food here so much that we visited twice during our visit to Yellowstone. You have to try the Buffalo burrito, it is HUGE. The wind are great too, big and tasty.

Typical Bar/Pub kind of place. Dark inside with a little casino area. Stuffed bison abound with kitschy little decorations. Bar type local servers and tourist clientele. A long walk for us from our cabin near the IMAX theater. Wondered if it would be worth it-...More

Ate here Sunday night and watched Sunday night football. Buffalo chili was delicious!!!! Buffalo chicken dip was decent. I thought it would be better. It was loaded with chunks of chicken. Food was good for the price. Atmosphere was neat. I’d go back.

The service was good and quick even though they were busy. The portions are huge. We just had an appetizer and a bowl of chili each and neither my wife or myself could finish and we were sharing the appetizer.

Ribs were good. Burrito was oversized. Buff bites were yummy! Loved the buffalo taco salad. Clearly, a favorite for locals and staff was great.

I definitely saw some kids in there when I went in for dinner. Also, the bar staff seemed aware of what music was playing, and whether it was "family-friendly" before 8, so I would think it would be fine to bring your kids... More
