This place was really great, and the waitstaff very friendly. It has a diner-like atmosphere and the plates come full. The 4 of us ate dinner there one night and it was so good we ate breakfast there a day later. The prices are moderate for what you get. Almost everything is either made there or by a neighboring business.... More

Best Breakfast in town, have eaten here a few times, always amazing!!! Menu has many options, although I would make sure and get something that comes with pancakes.

My family and I were blown away by the Buffalo Café. For starters, we made a reservation for dinner about 4 hours before we dined. We told them there were 5 of us...two adults and three kids. When we arrived to the restaurant, we were seated immediately, and waiting at our table were five waters (two adult cups and three... More

The wings were perfectly cooked. Just the right temperature, fall off the bone tender and very moist. I would like the sauce to be hotter tough as it was fairly mild. Easy fix is the table side Texas hot sauce. Nicely done Caesar salad made it a great meal. Wife had the special burger with pork belly and it was... More

Summer can be a bit of a wait for a table, but the food is consistently good. A favorite! The huevos are a must for breakfastThe hot veggie salad for lunch is yummy.

This is the best all around restaurant in Whitefish. Whether your trying to cure your hangover with some breakfast or looking for a fun dinner with a great beer selection The Buffalo is where it's at. Family run since the 70's you haven't truly experienced Whitefish until you have eaten at the Buff!

Had great burgers and hamburgers. Popular place, so expect a bit of a wait - but worth it. Fries and opinion rings also excellent. Friendly waitresses and good eats, will definitely go back.

My wife and I went here for breakfast. We waited about 5 minutes for a table. Service was a bit slow in my opinion. I had steak and eggs and my wife had an omelet. Each was about Denny's quality... nothing special. Kind of a "greasy spoon" if you ask me. Also bathrooms weren't the cleanest either.

This restaurant is in the downtown area and within easy walking distance of a lot of shops. Street parking only but it wasn't a problem while we were there. The menu was not huge but did offer a number of different choices plus daily specials. Service was slow - we were seated immediately but it took a while for our... More

We ate here for lunch and had burgers, turkey sandwiches, quesadillas, and a shrimp cake sandwich. Fries were very good, and I am not usually a big fan of them. We had good service and it was easy to get a table. I would go back.
