Great tasting large portioned food with great service. Warm inside for us considering we're from the Whitsundays. We will book in at the hotel as will be back!

We went to Black Buffalo on a Friday night, busy but not overly so. Ordered a chicken parmigiana and a Spanish chicken. Meals were fresh presented well and tasty, for a pub meal. Service to get a drink and place a food order could have been more attentive. As we stood there for some time before order was taken. Overall... More

We called in after a huge funeral with family. We booked for 25 but approximately 40 turned up. One particular staff member was very rude and upset that we'd taken up her 'walk in' seats. Interestingly I would've thought the extra 15 who spent in excess of $50 each were walk ins. Watch your attitude lady, have some compassion and... More

Was visiting Hobart to tackle the new Evolo Escape room and this seemed a close by pub for a counter meal. Great menu and very tasty meals indeed. No-one in our fairly large group was unhappy. Would definitely go back.

Very nice menu to bistro standard and above, value for money, clean and comfortable with well trained staff. Some good local wines also on their list, worth a visit or revisit,

I've been ordering the famous Siceys Super Schnitzel for over 30 years now and it fails to disappoint. The only thing that fails is my ability to consume what is on the plate. The schnitzel wins every time. Great pub. Very clean. Nice staff. Well priced. Keno and Dogs for ones that like a punt.

Had lunch with a friend, watched several very nicely presented meals come out. Was slightly disappointed, the pepper sauce was so peppery took the taste away from the rest of the meal, also the sauce on the parmigiana had a very strong Herb taste which I wasn't used to. The restaurant does have a nice atmosphere and friendly staff.

The Black Buffalo has been a family standard for a long time. They have a recently changed menu, although still more upmarket than your average pub food. The meals come out fairly quickly so I am not sure they have the same preparation reflective of the price. Still seams like standard pub fare with fancy names. Its a reliable place... More
