This was our first visit. We loved the patio and the restaurant was well maintained. We were surprised to be told that the regular menu was unavailable for Mother's Day. This was not advertised anywhere we could find. The offered buffet was less than desirable but we made due and didn't complain. I would expect for a buffet with this food quality to pay somewhere between 10 and 25 dollars per person. 40 dollars was a bit pricey considering we could have gotten a cook to order steak of decent quality for that price.

Meal we attended was the Mother's Day brunch. The steak was about what golden corral offers on buffet. the best item was the biscuits and patty sausage and gravy. The salad was good ole stake and ale quality, the french onion soup was just okay. The serving lines were really awkward, to cramped for being dressed up to come here. Finally, I don't drink and the pecan pie was laced with bourbon or some such. You need to tell us its got liquor in it and offer one that doesn't. So overall, to charge $40 plus ice tea, I had to pay almost $90 for just okay. Not worth it, for a couple that can't do this every day. We might come back on a regular meal day, but we would have to avoid any extras. Service people were very nice and helpful.

Rolls were very hard. potatoes skins very hard.
My dad loved his pot roast. Husband said 8oz steak was just ok. Onion rings were great. Veggie soup was delicious. Salad bar was good. They didn’t have calamari or peach cobbler which we found out after we had ordered it .

I can only review their Brunch menu because that is all that is available on Sundays. It is a limited selection of items, one of which our group did not find very palatable-the Monte Cristo. The service was fine and the salad bar had some very nice selections. We may come back when we can sample items from their regular menu.

What restaurant doesn’t serve a simple glass of wine? Just wanted a glass of Moscato, no don’t have any, beat we can do is sell you a whole bottle. Don’t want a whole bottle, just a glass. Not happy. Piano was great but it was WAY to loud over the speakers, to the point of being flat out annoying.

Easter brunch was great but we had a few in our group that wanted to order of the menu. Our local newspaper indicated the menu would be available. I think it said so in an ad. Or perhaps an article about places to eat Easter Sunday.

We meet our friends for lunch once a month and have decided to make Buffalo West our permanent meeting spot. We always have a lot to talk about since we get together so infrequently. Rachael our waitress was great to give us time to visit and time to place our order and even more time to visit after the meal and dessert. She was so accommodating and checked to see if we could have the Tuesday special of steak and baked potato even though something different was the special that day. The steak were perfect and the salad bar is such an enjoyment. We were there the day after my birthday (April Fools day) and we enjoyed the birthday dessert: yummy chocolate waffle with ice cream and fudge sauce.
As a former Steak and Ale employee from the the late 60s and early 70s, I so appreciate the nostalgic atmosphere.

Definitely not the best prime rib or steaks in Fort Worth!
Over priced and average quality food.
You would be better off just going to an OutBack since the quality is about the same but you would only have to pay half what Buffalo West charges for their average tasting food.

Consistently good food. Service was a bit off but friendly. Food was over-cooked somewhat but didn’t destroy the flavor. Salad bar was well stocked. French onion soup was dark and rich. Server was absent most of the time but when available was attentive.

The ambiance is country shabby chic. There was a pianist playing in the background it was beautiful. I love the separated Dining rooms. Each room had 5-10 tables. So lovely.
The service was poor. Our waiter proceeded to tell us they were so busy they had run out of wine glasses. He barely described the menu or specials. He waited oddly for us to order as if it was urgent. Every time he did approach the table we were deep in conversation. He interrupted rudely.
The food was good. Portions small.
Salad bar is excellent with many choices. Steak was cooked to our request. However my prime rib was cold When it arrived to the table, Asparagus delicious. We will return hoping the service was just because of the holiday and super busy evening. This was y our first time.

My martini was served in an ice tea glass. Was never asked
if we wanted desert. Salad bar needs more choices. Macaroni
salad was good but need more choices like that to add.
The Christmas Eve appetizers need some imagination. Had
a hard decision to pick any. We would have ordered more for a
party of eleven but the choices were not appetizing to a majority.
Only person that asked for something special, was to change
to rice instead of fries on the chicken. Was not changed.
Entree’s were tasty and waiter was personable.

Hey Mary and Paul!! My kids and I had Thanksgiving with you guys and not was MARVELOUS!! Our waitress was Rebecca and she was the best waitress O have ever seen. We chatted. She loves her job. We never had to waive her down for drink refills or clearing empty plates. We plan to do Thanksgiving with y'all every year. We hoped to see you that day but at least it wasn't confined to funerals!

As a former Steak and Ale employee of the 70s, I loved the nostalgia. The employees were gracious to let us look around all of the restaurant and pick the perfect table in front of the fireplace. Friends from the 70s joined us and we all remanence and had a great visit.
