I have never been so disappointed in an establishment in my life! As a local life-long resident, I have seen all of the different businesses that have tried and failed in this town and I cannot believe that the owner has not had such the experience. ... His staff is a mix of good and bad employees. The food is over priced and not very satisfying. The only benefit to the Unfriendly Buffalo is the size of the building and the events they have space for. (Mon, 2014-04-28 15:56)

I frequently dine at The Friendly Buffalo and ocasionally enjoy the live music they have. I have never once had any sort of bad food, or bad experience. I was so excited with local folks decided to open an establishment in my area. The management is more than nice, and the owner is almost always present and very friendly. I have also had the JOY of attending two banquets in their facility, both were totally flawless. I would recomend this place to anyone! (Wed, 2012-02-08 12:00)

Food average at best. Service...beyond bad. Management and staff...ditto. No wonder they couldn't hack it when they were partnered up together over @ Rockwoods in otsego. ... Tried this place after a crappy experience @ the new strip joint 'wanna be' bar "Lilly's" Another polished turd in the Big lake area. This town for food / beverage just plain sucks...and that's saying it nicely. Is the Bowling alley really the best thing in this town? If so that ain't saying much. From monticello to here, just keeps getting worse!! (Sat, 2012-02-04 09:04)

love love love this place! I had my wedding there the staff went above and beyond our expectations everyone said that it was the best food they ever had at a wedding... from the post above I would guess that the food count was off or more guest came than rsvped for dinner. (Mon, 2011-10-24 17:58)

spent 45 minutes at The Friendly (UnFriendly) Buffalo in Big Lake MN, I have never seen such a display of rudeness to the entertainment or patrons of an establishment by the management... we have made a personal choice to never support this local business again....keep this in mind the next time you're looking for some fun on a Sat. night, pick any other place!!

well when their business fails they have only themselves to blame, with this kind of customer service or lack of I'm sure it won't be long:) (Sun, 2011-08-21 08:36)
