Definitely worth a second visit – I had never eaten bison meat before and I was pleasantly surprised...the short ribs were excellent! Tender and the gravy and potatoes were perfect. My only complaint is that there could have been more of them!
Not a steak house – We recently tried this restraunt thinking maybe a great steak house? It was our first & LAST visit. Supposedly famous for its Buffalo meat (Bison). My steak tasted like it was spoiled meat, and it came from a cow- not buffalo. The bison meatloaf was pretty good, but nothing to write home about. We noticed other tables getting fresh biscuits, but we were not. When we asked the mgr about the steak, he said it had lemon butter on it, & not spoiled. As for the fresh biscuits, you have to request them. The only thing we had complimentary, was a very small bowl of pickled cucumbers..not very good either. Shrimp appetizer was overcooked and chewy, my steak was unedible, and potatoe was cold. Lemon butter or not, it revisited me about 45 mins after we got home.
Families and large groups feast on hearty cuts and comfort food at this Rocky-Mountain style steakhouse. – In Short
Lots of mahogany, tin ceilings, metal crown molding and Arts and Crafts-style décor prevail at this casual, comfortable saloon, part of media mogul Ted Turner's domain. Beef and bison are king, and they're hand-cut on site. Other bites include beer-can chicken, bison prime rib and cedar planked salmon. For dessert, there's home-made cookies, Kahlua fudge brownies, Coke floats and strawberry shortcake.
Bison steak - or was it? – The main draw at this restaurant is that they offer bison steaks. Yes, that's right, steak made from an American buffalo. Our business host who treated us to dinner there told us ahead of time that bison was of excellent quality and was leaner than beef. I tried a bison NY strip and it was very good as far as steak's go; however, I was expecting a sharper contrast in taste between bison and regular steak. I didn't notice a big difference, except that it was a little leaner. Later, when I told my wife about this, she somewhat seriously suggested "They probably just say its buffalo!"
Don't worry - if you prefer traditional steak, they essentially have a dual menu - all the steaks can be ordered in the beef variety or the bison variety. Atmosphere is elegantly casual - western decor with wood floors and white table cloths. Prices were a little high, but I didn't mind since I wasn't footing the bill.
