Always a buffet and the menu items are excellent. The seafood buffet once a month is a favorite in the area.

We stopped at Buffalo Roam for lunch while on a long-distance drive. The restaurant staff were very welcoming. We decided to try the buffet. We got there just as they were opening - all the food was out and ready to eat. They had three choices - salad buffet (with fruit), soup and salad, or soup, salad and an entree... More

I stopped for lunch while waiting for my husband who was researching his Mechem ancestors at the library. I can see why the place was packed! The food was very good, especially the salad bar.

Service was novice, in that the server was demanding of what she was going to do instead of taking requests from the group (separate checks, special orders).

We were there on a Friday evening. There were several reunions going on but they were stuffed and up to the task. It was a bar-b-que buffet and their guy knows how to cook. Ribs, chicken, melt in your mouth brisket... If you like bar-b-que and in the area on Friday evening, stop in, you will not be disappointed.

This is a nice, family owned and operated restaurant. The staff was friendly and the food was tasty. I especially liked that the menu offered a "smaller portion" section. I had plenty to eat and I didn't have the guilt of wasting food. Great choice!

Grat service, terrific food, and a friendly, family atmosphere. I have always eaten here while in this area of Kansas. The smoked meats and seafood are absolutely delicious!

The seafood was endless. Tasted great but $29.95 per person. It was worth it since its been years since I've been in the area.

I have eaten there a number of times and usually have the buffet, be in for lunch or for dinner. The Barbecued Ribs were excellent. I plan to have the Saturday Seafood Buffet this coming Saturday if they are open
