Great food, decent prices. Great menu variety. Will stop at again. Lots of Mule and Whitetail mounts on the walls plus a huge mounted full sized buffalo.

So glad we stopped in here tonight - we haven't been in all of the West Yellowstone eateries yet, but this one seems to top the list for getting a taste of "The Wild West". The place is dark and woody but welcoming, lined with mounts and a roaring fireplace. We walked in to some great live music, and the... More

What a fun place this was! Very popular with the locals and with us Yellowstone NP tourists. It's a good place to enjoy all kinds of well-prepared pub food, especially featuring bison. My husband had the huge and delcious buffalo smothered burrito and I had the buffalo meatball marinara. Both were great choices! Our server was extremely friendly and helpful,... More

Wasn't expecting much as far as food from the Buffalo Bar as it seems more like a, well, bar. The first time we stopped in I wasn't even hungry but ordered their bison chili and a side salad. Wow. That chili was excellent, and the side salad was fresh and crisp. I didn't "love" the piquant-esque peppers that came in... More

Great place to go after a day of activities like touring Yellowstone. Food was very good, service was good, and atmosphere get for pub environment. Nice selection of beers. Nice variety of menu items. Prices in line with prices for West Yellowstone. Will go back when in West Yellowstone next time.

A large group of us hooked up here for lunch, and WOW, fast friendly service best appys. The bison is probably some of the best I've had in my travels. See you next year!

Stopped in for a quick beer and burger. Both were great! Visually entertaining with all kinds of artifact etc on the walls. The staff made me feel quite welcome?

We are at the Buffalo Bar twice during our four night stay in West Yellowstone. I am a self designated expert on Mac & Cheese. I've eaten it at fancy restaurants, Hole in the Wall places, places that claim they are the best all over the world. My whole family agrees this is the single best Mac & Cheese in... More

We stopped by for a drink one night and it was a wonderful find. Lots of local flavor and all around good place to go. We did not eat there but would definitely try it next time we're in town.
