Ole's is one of my favorite restaurants! When you first walk in you see a polar bear and SO many other animals, then you can try finding different animals and after you order you can walk around and see them. Once you get your food......More

The food itself was nothing special, the fried chicken was OK, the baked potato less so. The sandwiches were OK but nothing to get excited about. You go because you live in the area and there aren't many choices or you go to see the...More

Legendary restaurant in the middle of no where. My daughter got a kick out of all the animals. This is a cool place to visit if you are going through on I-80. Food was great. (I personally had a smothered chicken sandwich). Would eat here...More

If you are driving through Nebraska and need a destination pit stop, make it here. Authentic big game bar and grill/steakhouse. Mounts and photos make for lots to absorb. Food is made to order fresh. Never disappointed.

We stopped in Paxton while driving across Nebraska. Definitely worth the stop!! They are welcoming, friendly and serve great meals! The restaurant is clean, the servers are friendly and efficient and the menu offers something for everyone.

The massive collection of hunting trophies mounted throughout the restaurant are obviously a main attraction. The back of the menu gives some history and states there are over 200 mounts. I personally saw an elephant, giraffe (head and neck), water buffalo, buffalo, elk, and an...More

Stopped for Nebraska's passport stamp. I'm not a fan of big game sport hunting and didn't like seeing giraffe, polar bear, moose, etc. stuffed. But if that's your thing, you'll love it.

We called for reservation for 15 people and when we arrived the table was ready. We ordered promptly and were served delicious food in a timely manner. Thanks for the awesome experience!

There is not a buffet for lunch or dinner. However, there is a buffet for breakfast. The morning I was there, I ordered straight off the menu as the buffet was not yet set up. But you can rest a sure that the cost for the... More

You can probably call and get a gift certificate. As to how much the breakfast buffet is, are you serious? You probably would be embarrassed at it's price if you tried to pay with a visa card. Cost is next to nothing for... More
