    Probably the best steak I have ever eaten. Cooked exactly like I like it, wonderfully seasoned. Accompanying asparagus done just right - still had some crunch. Borsin mashed potatoes excellent.

    Went for husband's birthday and had reservations early so we were first ones for the evening. We were seated in a corner near the back of the bar. Asked for a different table but were told they were booked up for the evening. There was no one else there at this time. Food was excellent but server seemed to be busy doing other things. She did not tell us her name. We did a lot of waiting considering we were the ONLY ones in the restaurant. Another waitress noticed us looking around and finally cleared our plates. The food was excellent as advertised but the service was definitely lacking. As for being booked up, the better tables were still empty when we left. I would still recommend for a special occasion.

    They have some of the right stuff, but they still need polishing. Salad was over dressed and small. My wife's tartar was incredibly salty. We were hungry and service was over whelmed, so we ate them. My bison ribeye was very tasty. It was $43 and undercooked, tho. My said her halibut was good. They are using the right ingredients, but the Polish is missing

    One of us had the buffalo ribeye and the other a filet. The latter was prime grade beef and perfectly grilled and delicious. The buffalo was quite large and filling and after a few bites the gamey taste of the meat was of no concern. The order of mushrooms was huge and the chocolate dessert, which we shared, was delicious. Service was congenial but inconsistent. This restaurant is below ground in the cellar of a condo-hotel of the same name. There is a large bar in the center of the space and booths line the wall on three sides. The server told us that the space was originally a private club that did not ultimately work out.

    The sizzling plate with the Bison rib steak was presented. I cut into it with great difficulty with the sharp steak knife provided. To my surprise, the steak was inedible, filled throughout with gristle.

    I had requested a table away from the kitchen, we were next to the kitchen. When we ordered drinks you didn't have Beefeater Gin, or JB scotch. The buffalo was a little tough. When we ordered our dinner, the waiter should have clued us in on the size of the side orders. They were huge, definitely enough for 5 large appetites. I still am not used to receiving one item on a plate, like a piece of meat, and nothing else. I like your restaurant and will return.

  • A bit disappointing for the price
    OpenTable Diner Since 2009
    Dined on 8/15/2014
    This restaurant is located in a hotel basement and seats about 60 including the bar area. My husband and I split a Caesar salad, ribeye, baked potato and mac n cheese. The salad had wilted lettuce and was removed from our bill without asking. The potato was average, the steak cooked well but the mac n cheese was the absolute best. Our server did a good job and was in charge of mixing drinks, waiting and clearing tables. The biggest disappointment was the amount of dust along the top of the leather seating all around the restaurant which diminished the overall experience of an expensive meal. The noise level was good which made conversation easy, but if we visit Jackson again, we would probably skip another meal here.

    We had some incredible steak at the White Buffalo but very poor table service. We waited 20 minutes to be seated then left over half and hour waiting for our drink order to arrive. They sold out of sides and the few staff there were run off their feet. Worth going for the food but massive room for improvement on customer service given the prices.

    Our experience was a bit mixed. Our server was really sweet and efficient. There was, however, some weird timing with the bar and the kitchen. We received our first round of drinks in a timely manner. Salad course came really quickly. We ordered another round of drinks and waited at least 1/2 hour, maybe 40 minutes. The second round of drinks came AFTER our main course arrived (which was quite a long time after the salads...) Overall a decent experience, and the food was delicious. The prime steaks were to die for, and the sides were really good.

    The food here was very good. But,the lack of experienced servers made the meal a chore. We knew we were in trouble when my wife ordered a Rum and Coke. The waitress asked " Whuld you like that over ice?" Didn't live up to the ads claiming " Fine Dining".

    First time at the WBC. It's a fairly small and intimate underground space, but not cramped. Service was excellent, thoughtful and not rushed with good suggestions. The garlic fries are great, but even better are the fresh potato chips from the bar menu - ask for them. The bison ribeye was outstanding, perfectly cooked and juicy. Lots of tasty sides to choose from also. As expected, a fairly spendy menu, so be prepared for the bill.

    This is a small quiet dining room with a bar that is attached to the hotel. $41 seemed high for a small filet, but it turned out to be an excellent steak, perfectly cooked. Service was good, wine list was interesting, priced mostly for the big spender. This was a special occasion for us and would not be our choice for an everyday experience, but we would go back.

    This place was great, the chef was very friendly and served us at the bar himself before dinner. Not a lot of seating so not great for BIG groups (9 or more) but very accommodative. Kind of spendy but knew that before we went in so was no surprise. GOT A TON OF GOOD FOOD.... could not order desert. Would recommend.

    Have been coming here since they opened. Great steaks--a fantastic filet. We often have salads, with one of the small plates and a side. It's the perfect size, when we want a smaller dinner. But another visit will include the steak, and the seafood entrees as well. The salads are crisp and fresh, and the seafoods and steaks are cooked perfectly. Book ahead in season, the restaurant is not huge. It is cozy and dark, with a small, but busy bar area. Great service, friendly staff and consistent.
