Steakhouse
Take the path less traveled & venture over just a few blocks off Jackson’s Town Square, where you’ll find the state’s most inventive steakhouse. The Restaurant at White Buffalo Club’s subterranean speakeasy steakhouse is home to locals and tourists alike. From wagyu steak to the masterfully created entrees, small plates, sides, and seafood—there is something to peak the palate of everyone in your group. Chef Brian Marino delights guests with an inventive flare of classic steakhouse offerings with local and seasonal ingredients. Dishes such as trout, venison, steak tartar and steamed mussels guarantee that everyone will find a dish to make them happy! Match these delightful creations with our extensive wine list & first class cocktail program and you have a night out that will be remembered. Locals have called the Restaurant at WBC “Jackson’s best kept secret”, but it won’t be that way for long so reservations are highly recommended.

Our meal was delicious. The food is expensive, but we thought it was worth it. It was the last night before closing for off season, so we had a limited menu to choose from. However, the staff more than made up for it by offering a few extras! I liked the dark speakeasy feel of the little nook we were seated at.

The food was awesome! There was some sticker shock over the scallop appetizer. You only received two for $24. I guess they flew in first class. They tasted wonderful. All of the food did. The wait staff was awful. Had to flag the waitress or hostess for water refills & cocktails. Never checked to follow up once the food was served. Disappeared after we ordered our first cocktails before ordering our dinner. Just a total mess on the service side. It really put a damper on the evening after scattering my father’s ashes.

Every time we visit Jackson, WY we always stay at The White Buffalo Club. There is no other hotel in Jackson that comes close to the intimate feeling the restaurant gives while enjoying a classy meal.

The restaurant was wonderful, small, quaint...but loud. The food is terrific but a large bar and tables so close make it loud. Food was delicious, I loved the sides. Small menu that hits all the marks.

The service was good. The steak was so salty that I asked them to place back on the grill to burn off the salt flavor. They did not offer to prepare a new steak. Still wasn’t satisfied. They we’re also out of quite a few items. Being a local business owner I would not recommend.

The noise level was excruciating! People were yelling between tables! The bartender was yelling across the room! We were barely able to hear our server. This restaurant needs to decide if it is going to be a bar or a fine dining restaurant. The food was good, but was definitely not a place to enjoy it! Our 6 person group couldn’t have a conversation due to the noise! Save your money for a true fine dining restaurant where you can enjoy your meal!

Limited but nice menu to choose from. A vegan guest found several items to chose from. Well crafted drink menu also. A below ground setting so no windows. Limited seating so make a res. One of my Top Three restaurants in Jackson Hole.

The service was poor by any measure. The server neglected to advise of specials and had a serious lunch bad attitude, as if we were disturbing her. The menu amps up price/value ratio by making everything, including bread, ala carte. Trout was dried out, as if it had been re-heated. The ambience is suffocating you small, fine for diners who enjoy basements. Finally, the overall supervision was left to someone who needs much more training.
A total waste of an evening.

Mashed potatoes and Brussel Sprouts were excellent. My Buffalo NY Strip was very mediocre. My wife loved her halibut. For the price, my steak had to be much better

Nice ambiance, good service. But we were very disappointed in the trout. Dry, overcooked and a harsh, bitter taste. Probably a mistake to order fish in a steak restaurant. Probably a mistake not to have asked if it was fresh, locally caught which I suspect it was not. Would not recommend if you are going there with trout in mind.

This is by far our favorite spot in Jackson Hole for dinner. We’ve eaten in almost every place and the food at White Buffalo Club tops them all. the steak was seasoned and cooked to perfection and sides were so good. The restaurant is inviting and the servers are top notch. We are looking at staying onsite next trip because we loved the restaurant so much. We actually cancelled another reservation to eat here again before our trip ended. Definitely will be back!

The worst dining experience ever. Was told it was a fine dining restaurant, very romantic. Made reservations MONTHS in advance. Upon arrival there was no hostess, no bartender, and no bussers. 3 servers were trying to do everything. There were 2 groups of people standing ahead of us without a reservation and instead of asking the line if anyone did have a reservation, we had to wait 20 minutes to finally get seated! Right next to a huge table of boisterously loud patrons... our table was too small to even fit 4 drinks on. Took another 30 minutes to get a single cocktail ordered. We decided to try the super expensive local wagyu (ungraded btw) at $200 a steak. It arrived very bland and way overcooked - I had to cut off 1/3 of my meat because I couldn't even chew it. The server was super nice and very apologetic, but nothing could fix the dinner. Our last night in Jackson Hole and the romantic dinner shot. We got drinks at a bar and a take out pizza afterwards to try and salvage the evening.

Very good food and nice warm environment....did not realize there is no outside patio, however, so if you're looking to dine outside this is not the place.

I thought the burger had a strange taste, maybe the sauce? A very good bun but, lose the sauce and try
another one, instead. Good value with the beer, however.

The waitress was rude and we felt like she was annoyed we were there! Never poured out wine after first glass. When you’re paying $40 plus for a steak I think the service should be top notch! Steak and sides amazing but service wasn’t!

We went there a week ago and the service was stellar. Yesterday, not so much. Walked up to the bar and ordered our own drinks and walked to busing station and filled our own water. She never checked on how the entrees were. Enough said.

We can’t say enough about one of the best meals we’ve ever had and we will never go to Jackson again without a stop at the White Buffalo. From the focaccia bread (divine) to the Mac and cheese to the Brussels sprouts to our entrees, we were all very pleased with our selections and the whole experience. Highly recommend!

There is a very limited menu of high priced steaks of American wagyu beef. My steak was cooked as I requested. The service by Nello was excellent. I especially liked how he went out of his way to help a Japanese family that spoke little English. The salad and sides were very good. I would return, if I wanted their kind of steaks.

The food is incredible. I would highly recommend the bone marrow and the ribeye served on a salt block. The restaurant is small and can be noisy on busy nights. Service is good but somewhat slow. Plan to sit for a bit between courses. Save room for dessert!
