The food was good but not great. We were the only ones downstairs. There were a lot of people upstairs and while the service wasn't bad it was obvious that the attention was being place on the upstairs crowd. I wouldn't go back but would let others know that it is an OK place to eat. Just make sure you eat upstairs. That must be where the action is.
Creative menu fairly well executed. Were there at 7 pm on a Thursday night and there were only a few tables occupied...not sure why that would have been. All was good...just not great. Will give it another try in a month or so.
This was such wonderful location for Mother's Day Brunch. The menu had plenty of options, but was minimal enough that you didn't find yourself spending all your time staring at it, trying to choose. The service was fantastic, and FAST! The drinks were delicious. I would certainly recommend.
We tried out Buffalo Nickel based on reviews we read. No complaints. Service was great, food was really unique and tasty. I had the BBQ Brisket with fried eggs, perfect breakfast. Our waiter was friendly and accommodating and the atmosphere was comfortable. Would definitely go back.
On Mother's Day, I arrived at the Buffalo Nickle with what some would say a lot of baggage-- a clunky manual wheelchair, 2 very energetic toddlers and my friend, their equally energetic and kind mother. Service was lovely and streamlined, food was great esp, fancy French toast for the children and lovely roses for us moms. Will definitely bring my son here when he gets back from overseas
Buffalo Nickel was already a favorite for dinner, and now it is a great new option for brunch. We had a large group of 12 , and the staff was ready and waiting to accommodate. The food was excellent as always, and all of our party had a great time. I highly recommend this establishment.
WE have driven by the Buffalo Nickel many times and had it on our list. We are very happy we finally made it there. The dinner room on street level is nice a cozy with excellent staff (thanks Clu). We looked over the menu and liked the selection. For starters we got deviled eggs and their brussel sprouts. Wife is not a fan of brussel sprouts, but I had to make sure I got some after she had her first bite! Excellent start. The deviled eggs were good but definitely overshadowed. For a main dish, we ordered the pork chop and spaghetti carbonara. Both were plated nicely and tasted fantastic. The pork chop was perfectly cooked and complemented with an interesting sauce and a few small dollops mustard. The carbonara was an unexpected surprise. The perfectly cooked egg on top was the visual highlight, but it bought the dish together into a tasty meal. We definitely will be back to enjoy more of their selections as well as the bar upstairs.
Had a business dinner for a group of 9 upstairs by the bar. Food was great and everyone enjoyed the evening. Lots of action going on in the "fun room" which added to the vibe of the place.
Four of us tried this one night. Liked the menu, had fabulous service, enjoyed our meal - good price range, although I thought the oysters were a bit spendy for what they were, but still a nice evening out. We especially enjoyed the small plates, lots of variety, local/unique choices. We ate upstairs, and it was VERY noisy by the time we finished, which put a damper on relaxing over coffee since conversation is too difficult. Maybe I'm getting too old, but I really wish restaurants would tone down all those hard surfaces that make the noise worse!
Nice place. Good service and interesting, unique food.
