I have eaten at the Buffalo Nickel twice in the last few month. The food was excellent both times. The atmosphere is rustic with animal heads hanging on the walls. However, both times, the service was extremely slow. Several tables were served before us even though we came in first. It seems popular with local residence. As a result, it appears regular are served before those of us who are from out of town. However if one is not in a hurry, the food is worth the wait.

The decor here matched the name.Lots of western stuff with a buffalo head. Food was very good .I had lime and tequila grilled shrimp. It was great with a garlic butter. My husband had a hamburger that he said was one of the best. Service was just ok. I would return.

First time coming to buffalo nickel and will not be the last!!! Right when we came in the hostess was very sweet! Went upstairs and orders a few drinks at the bar. Stephanie made our drinks and not only was she great at mixing she was great in general! Matt was also super nice and made a great drink! Very helpful! Beyond wonderful service! Have not enjoyed dinner yet but, can not wait to do so! Obviously will be returning!

The city was very busy for nine people to eat but the Buffalo Nickel Bar & Grill was able to get us in and served us well. The staff was terrific with a wide choices of dishes from our group. And we felt like we stepped back into the west. Go in and just have a drink to check the place out.

Tried to eat at this restaurant, but never got served. Large group of bikers came in after us and got served before us. We were told after 20 minutes, "2 minutes to go." Fifteen minutes later, "Thanks for your patience, I have my eye on your order." Ten minutes later we left. We left four singles for our tea while watching several others who showed up after us served. Sigh. It may be a great restaurant, but we'll never know, because we'll never go back. Don't like to be treated like that more than once.
